If you watch any of the restaurant failure shows such as Kitchen Nightmares or Restaurant Impossible, you will see just how much a bad eating establishment hates rating and review apps such as Yelp. Unfortunately for them, they are about to hate Yelp even more as the company is preparing to launch video reviews on its service.

Coming in June, Yelp will begin allowing users to upload videos to their reviews of business establishments. Unfortunately this new feature will only be available to Yelp's elite reviewers for the time being, but will be trickled down to everyone as time progresses. This could be a very good way to showcase server staff who are rude or just plain obnoxious, as well as showcasing health concerns such as bugs, and dirty eating space.
