Writing a Review
April 19, 2002
For the last two classes, we have studied a book review on the novel,
Get Shorty. Today, we will begin work on a review of our own.
Since we all like to eat, we will practice by writing a review about a
restaurant (in any country).
Writing a Restaurant Review
In order to write a good restaurant review, you must include
information from each of the four following points:
Food: Name the dishes you tried. Comment
on the flavour, the presentation, freshness, spicing. Did the food
arrive hot? Were the portions big enough?
Service: Was the waiter helpful and
well-informed? Was the table cleared quickly? Did your water, tea, wine
arrive when needed? Was your waiter easy to attract to your table? Did
you get your bill quickly when you were ready to leave?
Ambiance: Was the restaurant clean? Was
it well decorated and comfortable? How were the other customers? Was
there music? Was it too loud? Were the bathrooms clean?
Other: Was the restaurant better or
worse than others like it? Was it a good deal? Is it a good place for a
birthday or other celebration? Should you make a reservation? Is it a
good place for a large group?
This Week's Writing Assignment: (All
paragraphs are DUE Friday, April 26)
