A Comparison of Ratings

Compare Gayot's restaurant ratings with Zagat and Michelin

Unlike Michelin and Zagat, we are constantly adjusting our ratings online, whereas theirs are set in stone for a solid year. Note that the restaurant ratings below are based solely on the food. Michelin has discontinued its guide for Los Angeles, so the ratings below are based on the 2009 guide.
