Need another competitor in this space, please! 1/5
Sooooo disappointed to have lost Urban Spoon. Zomato is not a useful replacement — doesn’t help me to identify great restaurants while on the road, not a foodie-community of users, and don’t appear to be actively taking feedback ... so I have to settle for Yelp until somebody else finds that hole left by the discontinuance of Urban Spoon.
Unfortunately the app is lacking support 1/5
The app is no longer supported. I hoped for a better way of getting the word out than what actually happened. Being a long term user, I wish that the situation of transferring to Zomato could have gone more smoothly.
Bring back Urbanspoon!!! 1/5
Zapato is garbage. I have no idea where to eat now.
UrbanSpoon used to be great. This app was ruined. So sad
I miss you US 1/5
By Ash L.
God I miss you US. You were the best app for travel and or trying new places. I miss the spinner so much. Why oh why did you sell out!?
WHY EVEN LET ME DOWNLOAD THE APP IF ITS JUST GONNA REDIRECT ME TO ZOMATO?!?!
REMOVE FROM APP STORE?!!!!!!!!!!!! >:(((((((
By Jey Smith
Why is this app still available if it is literally non-functional and tells you to delete the app in favor of another?
You should just take the app off of the App Store if I’m going to completely download the app just to be told to download a different app
Wheee is the random selection option 3/5
By Louisiana Dave
Urban spoon had a random restaurant selection option.
Like a slot machine.
I really enjoyed it and it is not available on Zomato
Take your app out of the App Store so people don’t wast time downloading it only to find out they have to download another app instead.
You guys killed a great app. Go back to the beginning. Just plain awful.
Dump Urbanspoon 1/5
As a frequent traveler I really appreciate a restaurant locator app that is simple & easy to use, accurate & up to date. Zomato WAS the best app ever for finding restaurants but ever since being bought out by Urbanspoon it’s now almost completely worthless, hence the cumulative 1.5 star rating from everyone. Why would you buy a successful company to just destroy it? I would gladly pay for a good app but until it’s proven by a free edition trial I’m not wasting my time or money & you shouldn’t either. Until they realize this & dump Urbanspoon all together & go back to the original Zomato format stay away, far, far away...
I loved the Spoon! 5/5
We loved the casino slot machine spinner and the functionality of this app. I don't like someone and have deleted it. Looking for my new favorite foodie app. 😔
What the heck happened to the original Urbanspoon?!😭😭😭😩 bring it back!!
Not an App 1/5
This is not actually an app so much as a link to another app. Do not download.
Used to be great 1/5
By Chef loulou
Was a great app, now just blows...
Don't download this, you can't use it 1/5
By A very annoyed person now
It'll make you download Zomato
Missing Urban Spoon... 2/5
By jack moff
Like many others have mentioned, Urban Spoon was a great app. Info was accurate, and informative. Zomato is just the opposite. Gives you restaurant choices not close or in some cases not even in the same state. I can’t say enough good of Urban Spoon, nor enough bad about Zomato. Please bring the original Urban Spoon back!!!!!!
UrbanSpoon was great. Zomato is a dud. 1/5
Just deleted Urbanspoon after years of frequent use. The migration over to Zomato has taken away everything great about Urbanspoon, so it's no longer of any use.
You can find a restaurant and read reviews, but you can no longer see at a glance what % of people Like It, or easily review it yourself. Criteria searches are no longer easy. Zomato is just too watered-down.
Imagine having all of your favorite music on a playlist, and someone replaces it with one that has only a few of your favorites. Welcome to Zomato!
I can't blame Urbanspoon for cashing in, but I think Zomato will regret the purchase. :-/
New is not better 1/5
I am an original Urban Spoon user and loved that app. Each upgrade of Zomato has been more disappointing than the last. The emphasis seems to have shifted from finding restaurants to creating social media trends. The location feature is a mess; it pulls from neighboring towns but not a place down the street. If you mistype anything in the name you get zero matches, it has no logic to find a close match. I have grumbled every time I’ve visited a new city and ended up using Apple maps to find local places. Today I’m deleting the app. It just doesn’t work well enough to be useful. Please bring back Urban Spoon.
Zomato isn’t the same 1/5
Downloading the app just pushes you to Zomato’s main app after they purchased Urbanspoon, and that app doesn’t really do anything that Urbanspoon used to.
Old reviews, closed restaurants 1/5
I have tried several times to mark restaurants as closed and yet the app still shows them open. Second issue is that I'm only seeing reviews I've made from 2014-15 and nothing newer. The app is pretty much worthless unless you live in a city that is a major tourist destination and even then, the reviews are old or have no detail with them. Bye bye Urbanspoon, I mean Zomato.
Beware of lax security of your identity. 1/5
I was just informed by LifeLock that I had some data that was sold on the dark web. The source was Zomato..... I couldn't figure what Zomato was, until I realized Zomato absorbed Urbanspoon of which we were avid users. Thanks for nothing, Zomato. My data was stolen from your website.
Doesn't do anything 1/5
This app doesn't do anything. Once downloaded and opened, it just shows a splash screen directing you to the Zomato app. Save the time and download that one instead.
This isn't even an app 1/5
Why would you let me waste time and data to download an app that only tells me to download another app?
So stupid 1/5
Sooo, I downloaded this app then a pop-up comes on my screen when it is complete and says "we've moved to Zomato. Do you want to download that app?" Hey, idiots, why didn't you tell me that BEFORE I downloaded your stupid app?
If you're going to tell me to download another app then why even have Urban Spoon as an option. Get it it together. One star and that's because I cannot give you NO stars.
RIP Urbanspoon 1/5
The fun little app where you used to could shake your phone and get restaurant ideas. Now dead. It says download the Zomato app and use that instead. The Zomato app requires an account. I just want dinner ideas. Oh well.
Don't even download 1/5
Don't even bother downloading. It just tells you to download a different app. This shouldn't even be available for download.
Every since they went to Zomato it is unusable. Can't sort or look at a map.
No longer works after the last update 1/5
It now shows an ad for a competitor's app, so it looks like someone hacked their Apple App Store account.
NOT AN APP!! Waste of time! 😒 1/5
Downloaded this app and when opened it is just a splash screen telling me to download Zomato and delete this app. Zomato wants all my info so I will just do without. WASTE OF TIME!!!
This app was AMAZING 1/5
Bring it back. Zomato is garbage.
It's I pointer to a different app 1/5
Thanks to zomato for ruining perfectly good app
UrbanSpoon = Porsche ... Zomato = Yugo 5/5
I'm all about change... as long as it is for the better. I LOVED UrbanSpoon, especially while traveling on business! Zomato App is like a Commodore64 to UrbanSpoon App is to a MacBook Pro! (That reference will be lost on Millennials).
In short- I'm searching for a better alternative now that I've been pushed towards Yelp... and I haven't really been a fan of theirs. 😕
Delete this. 1/5
Why did I waste precious data downloading an app that isn't even functioning anymore. I am a struggling mother trying to make ends meet and you have STOLEN from me.
Why even have this app on the store if it's just a prompt screen to download another app?
Not a real application 1/5
The main screen tells you to download another application, and it offers no functionality past that. I wonder why the download for the app is 50mb.
What TF? 1/5
By Ace Booger
Why even offer this app if you must instantly delete and download "Zomato"? I would give you negative stars if possible. Thanks for the waste of time and I hope you experience nothing but agony for the rest of your life.
Waste of data - no longer active 1/5
This needs to be removed from the App Store. It's no longer an active. You download it and it tells you to download their new app. Not cool for if you're paying for data :(
They ruined a great ap 1/5
Urbanspoon use to be an awesome app. Remember when it would spin wheels and it would randomly select restaurants for you??? Bring that back. The new app stinks. You stink. You should be ashamed of yourself. Sad.
This app is dead. If you download it, it just refers you to download the Zomato app.
Worst experience ever 1/5
By Ahmed wasfie
i am honestly very disappointed
i registered couple of hours a go, i was a talabat customer and decided to try zomato.
i ordered from zarub , it said if its ur fist order u get 20% off if u pay online, i have made an order of around 123 AED , i applied the EAT code and got 20% off it became 99.08 AED but the full 123 was deducted !!! the order was confirmed at 2:11 am , i got a msg i am receiving the order at 3 27 am which is already too much, i waited and got nothing, after couple of calls and follow ups i got the order at 4:05 am and it was cold and guess what it was at 123 AED the discount was fake!!!
I miss you. 1/5
Why does this app exist if all it does is redirect you to Zomato?
I used to really like this app, back before they decided to take things in another direction. I just can't get into Zomato. I miss you Urbanspoon. I guess Yelp will fill the void.
Non existent 1/5
They moved everything to the Zomato app. Then why even have this in the App Store???
Do not download this app 1/5
By Ina Rubina
It doesn't work - says you should download the Zomato app
When did they change the way this app functioned!!! I like the spin &, price rates of cheap to expensive....booo change it back!!!
Anyone who likes this App Now obviously did not have it in its original design!!!
This is the worst! If I wanted Zagat I would have down load it!!!
Absolutely the worst design change.
FIRE the person to suggest it &, design it!!
Zomato destroyed it!!! 1/5
Was a great app but zomato destroyed it. Loved the spinner to find restaurant. I will rot in hell before I get zomato!!!
No longer opens 1/5
It just is a screen that links you to download the Zomato app. Totally useless.
