To determine Yelp’s top places to eat for 2015, their data science team analysed which places were the most popular and well reviewed over the course of 2014. The methodology behind this list differs slightly from last year’s, which unearthed the best places to eat on Yelp based on almost 10 years of reviews, this time Yelp’s data science team gave more weight to recent reviews, so that Yelpers’ opinions in 2014 mattered most, while older reviews had less influence on the list. Businesses were compared on a nationwide basis.

Engineers on Yelp’s data mining team used a technique based on the Wilson Score to compile a list of highly rated places to eat. This method takes into account both star rating and number of reviews to reveal which spots not only have top notch ratings, but also which are most popular in the Yelp community.
