How was this list created?

Selecting the right restaurant can be really difficult, especially when you would like to find a new one. We pored over ratings for 31320 restaurants on Yelp and Google, 1095134 restaurant reviews in Berkeley and 1539 top lists and articles. We paid extra attention to what Spoon University and Zagat had to say, and applied our Feastfox magic sauce. We cross-referenced with top lists, like Spoon University - 43 Berkeley Eats You Must Try Before You Graduate, Zagat - Best Restaurants in Berkeley and Zagat - 12 Secrets of the San Francisco Dining Scene. If it’s on the list, we’ve checked and verified that the restaurant is still open and will showcase any updated hours and services you need to be aware of. Restaurants can’t pay to show up on this list, so you can trust what you see and enjoy Seattle’s hidden gems. Don’t sleep on the restaurants in this list.
