4 Easy Steps in Responding to Negative Reviews

restaurants respond to negative reviews

You’ve received a negative review online—how you react now sets you up for success down the road. Potential customers are often more appreciative of how you respond to the criticism than the criticism itself. Trust grows when you answer a critic rather than ignore them or try and delete a negative comment.

The customer is always right—you apply in your operation, so make sure you apply it online as well. Even if you’re unsure that a comment is valid, react to it as if it were.

4 easy steps in responding to negative reviews

1. Apology: Starting with a quick, “We’re sorry to hear you had a bad experience with us,” goes a long way. Customers know you’re not perfect, but they look for the humanity in your reply.

2. Appreciation: Feedback is essential to every company. Tell them how much you appreciate their input.

3. Direction: This part of your response will vary depending on the problem your customer describes. You can provide a solution right there on the public forum. For messier matters you’d rather make private, give them the best way to communicate with you, such as a direct message or your website’s contact page.

4. Follow Through: If you receive an email or message back from that customer, go through the details of their problem and offer a situation fitting to their experience — a discount, for example. Your offer will surprise and delight many customers. Others might just be there to complain and might not respond to your comment.

  • Aim to respond within a day or two of the post, but the sooner you answer, the better. Though the timeliness of your response is important, if the comment upset you, take a moment to cool down before replying.
  • One tactic used successfully is to have cards in your restaurant printed up with a separate cell phone number used only for complaints. If a disgruntled patron voices their displeasure, offer them the card with the promise that their complaint will be heard directly at the top. And, of course, follow through with solving this customer’s problem or concern when or if they call. This direct process can forestall many online reviews in the first place.
  • The main review websites you should monitor are Yelp, Google Business, and TripAdvisor. However, Facebook also serves as a review site for many businesses. With so many people using Facebook, it pays to keep an eye on your Facebook account.

Above all, it’s not a catastrophe if you receive a negative review. The glowing reviews from your satisfied customers will make up for the minority of negative ones. Your customers and most site visitors can spot the difference between a real complaint and a malicious remark with no merit. And, when they see the way you handle the real complaints, you’ll see their trust in your business grow.
