First, the review written by Ms. Rodell is fantastic. She points to both the positive and negative aspects of Starfish Sushi & Saki Bar, which is more constructive than straight negative criticism. The "star system" has nothing to do with the credibility of the reviews in this section and quite frankly I doubt the reviews have anything to do with advertising. I think the point is not wanting to make incredibly harsh and useless criticisms of something that someone had poured their life, energy and savings into.
I would just like to say that I enjoy your columns because they go beyond the food. I appreciate that you describe the people and the physical atmosphere of the restaurant.
My impression of the food is always a partial by-product of the service and the way I felt as a customer. Your descriptions are really helpful to someone when they are trying to decide where to go for a meal.
