When you like eating out as much as I do, it's not unusual to have problems remembering where you've been, what you thought and - most importantly - if you'd go there again.
Some people are happy with the traditional notebook and pencil, but the more tech-savvy will want something fancier for remembering the good, the bad and the ugly of the restaurant world.
First, you put in the practical details of the restaurant - address, telephone, etc. - and then you specify the details - type of cuisine, your score - using a variety of drop-down menus.Restaurant Savant gives you space for even the smallest details. In the bottom half of the window there are a series of tabs where you can add your comments, select any special features the restaurant may have, add a map of how to get there or email all the details to a friend.
There aren't that many configuration options, but you can create a basic review book, save to your iPod and share reviews with other Restaurant Savant users by exporting, emailing and importing.Like other programs from the same developer, I find Restaurant Savant's interface less than comfortable to use. Apart from that, it is very difficult to know what restrictions affect the trial version - I managed to add several reviews with no problem, but it doesn't say if there is a limit.
Restaurant Savant is a functional and easy-to-use application. Even so, there's something that stops it from being truly great, and I just couldn't shake off the feeling that something was missing.
