Looks good but doesn't openA recent purchase but the tile page opens and then the app freezes. I tap all the options - map, search, address etc. and nothing happens. I would rate this much higher if this bug could be corrected..Version: 1.1.1

Great reviews. Needs improvementWish the locate function worked. The ratings were on par with my experience.Version: 1.0.2

Rip-offWe carried Patricia Wells 3rd edition of Food Lovers Guide to Paris all over the city in 1995. Every recommendation was great. Twenty years later we're going back, so I bought the app. I searched for 4 of our favorites. All are still open, with web sites, FB pages, etc. Nothing. No listings in this app. 0 for 4. We'll bring the book. The map does not work on iPhone 6 plus - all pins on all the time. GPS probably won't work, but I don't know if I'll even bother to find out. This app is a waste of time. Patricia Wells RIP. It's too bad your good name is being abused with this lousy app..Version: 1.3.3

In mid-trip, i've stopped using itAs a big,long-time fan of Wells, I was eager enough for this App to upgrade my iPod. But after having more "misses" than "hits" with her recommendations, I'm using only trip advisor reviews for the rest of this trip. The glossary is useful..Version: 1.0.2

Feels amateur at bestI was excited about this guide but I ended up using Google restaurant searches and David Lebowitz’s blog for better suggestions. Half the time her reviews feel half hearted. She only ate one thing at the restaurant and looked over people’s shoulders to “review” what they ate. This is not the work of a food writer. It is really disappointing. Save your money..Version: 2.1

New Food lover's Guide to ParisThis does not work on the iPad. Cannot scroll. Can see whole page only on iPhone setting (1x). No response to touchscreen..Version: 1.3.3

Take Caution with these food suggestionsI was in Paris for eight days and this app worked great on the technical side however it led me to three sub par restaurants and therefore 3 really disappointed experiences. 1. The first was La Penderie. The atmosphere was awesome but the wine was terrible and my chicken was super dry and tasteless. The charcuterie and creme brulee were good but the mixed drinks were awful and service was slow. 2. The second was Cosi a sandwich place which was ok but nothing exceptional. I felt Patricia Well's review was overly exaggerated and my friends I took there were not impressed. However the service was nice. 3. The third was Cafe Napolean. The view of the church on the plaza was quaint and relaxing. The review recommended the nicoise salad which i ordered and it was totally gross canned dark meat tuna. Not fresh. However I do highly recommend the nicoise salad at Da Rosa in adornment 6. The service at Cafe Bonaparte was extremely slow. It took us 45 mins to get our bottle of wine. I would have much rather spent my 100 euro for another night at Le Gorille Blanc, best variety of French cuisine and best value in Paris. Rabbit and duck confit are to die for..Version: 1.0.1

No for I padThis app does not open initially. I turned off my iPad and then I was able to open it After that I cannot change pages. It works ok with iPhone..Version: 1.3.2

Decent content, weak functionalityThis is really more of a stripped down mobile book than an app. It's got many (not all) of the great write ups in the Wells book, but no real functionality. Sorting is crude and the map doesn't geo-locate, but if you're out on the town and know where you are, you can manually zoom on the map to find a recommended place near you. If you're the type who plans every meal ahead of time, just get the book or digital book, as you'll likely enjoy it more..Version: 1.3.3

Severe formatting issuesI am a big fan of Ms. Wells's reviews and write ups so I was eager to install this app when I learned of it. The substance is great so far, but unformatted text at the end of each entry is very distracting. For $5.00, I would have thought that that there would be greater attention to detail..Version: 1.0.0

A Patricia Well’s Embarrassment!!This is an embarrassment that Patricia Wells should either correct with a complete overhaul or remove from the Apple App store. I purchased it, downloaded it, have updated it, and it doesn’t work. It’s a mess. Her book was well done originally, and if she’d spent the money necessary to hire a competent app developer and update it properly, it would be a help to Paris visitors, but this is sad..Version: 1.3.3

Don’tThe app lists stellar restaurants like the terrible chain pain quotidien when trying to find a nice dinner. Seriously don’t waste your money (or be surprised when you find the $5 bill for this app).Version: 2.1

Needs work!I'm a huge fan of Patricia Wells' writing and own several (OK, three) of her books, so when in Paris for two weeks, I was excited to discover her app. Very disappointing, not for her words, when I could get to them, but for the functionality of the app. Doesn't rotate on the iPad, wants to show a landscape view in portrait mode. Buttons are unresponsive. The content is kept up to date, but the basic operation doesn't get fixed. I doubt that the developer ever looks at the app on an iOS device. Wells' writing and criticism deserves a better presentation..Version: 1.3.1

Big disappointment!Do not purchased this app. You cannot search for restaurants. You must scroll through and alphabetized list of restaurants with no guidance. This is a big disappointment from our 1999 version of food lovers guide to Paris which we have used time and time again in Paris..Version: 1.3.3
