Question about restaurant reviews

I've noticed that sometimes a review is posted where someone almost trashes a previously reviewed restaurant yet the pictures that accompany the review are from previous reviews. That makes me suspicious of the current review - if the place has gone down hill, and you're going to post a review of it, you should at least have one picture to back that up, IMHO. Or leave off the former pics that show good food! LOL

    If your referring to The Varsity, I believe thats one of those places you either love or hate.. At least thats what I gather from previous discussions here..

    A note about the way restaurant reviews work: when a new review is posted, the photos you see alongside it are all the photos that have been posted for that restaurant - photos from previous reviews along with any new photos.

    I would like to see the reviews dated as well as the time of day. In regardes to the Varsity review the three available were consistant until the last one. I would love to see a picture of that place when its busy. I also wonder if the pictures posted represent the way the food was prepared for the last review. Adjudicator was not happy with the meal he was served from a very well know longtime establishment. I hope we get some more reviews of The Varsity as I will be in Atlanta this year and it is on my list of places to visit...Russ

    Thanks for the answer about photos accompanying reviews, Bruce Bilmes & Sue Boyle. I wasn't referring in particular to the Varsity review, although that did serve to trigger this question. It was actually a couple of reviews a while back (2-3 months ago?) that just didn't have -anything- good to say about the places; I can't remember now, though, which they were!
