Having a great reputation is next to godliness in the restaurant business. You are only as good as your last meal, what you did last month does NOT matter, its what you did last last. Especially today when a negative experience is all over the internet, instantly. Landlords are declining leases because of bad reviews on yelp, the value of your restaurant can be greatly depreciated because of a 3.5 star rating.
