I Think the Food Was Good

Friday, March 28th, 2014

If you make a reservation via OpenTable, you may be asked to rate the restaurant after your visit. One of the questions asks you to rate the noise level. It even has what seems to be a helpful little level meter, as seen below.

Quiet

Perhaps you ate at a romantic restaurant that was very “Quiet”. Was it French? It sounds French. They sure eat some strange things.

Moderate

Most likely, however, the noise level was “Moderate”. Most restaurants are moderately noisy, right?

Energetic

Some might call this level of noise “Loud”, but OpenTable euphemistically calls it “Energetic”. That’s some pretty good whitewashing, but OpenTable didn’t stop there.

Do Not Recall

Yes, apparently, some restaurants on OpenTable are so noisy that you’ll have no memory of even having eaten there. Now that’s loud!
