REVIEW POLICIES

Below is a disclaimer to inform readers and establishments how Fred Bollaci works to evaluate and review establishments.

“All opinions are always my own. Photographs are typically mine and/or shared by the establishment, chamber of commerce, etc, or credit is listed we will provide such attribution whenever possible or known and will gladly credit or remove anything inadvertently not meeting these standards. Many establishments have provided complimentary or discounted meals, lodging, travel expenses, and amenities to help me defray costs and enable me to deliver fresh, exciting content to my audience, however my opinions cannot be bought or influenced. Many establishments reach out to me and invite me to visit to sample their cuisine, or accommodations. Others are recommended by my Advisory Board Members, colleagues, friends, and family. If I do not care for an experience, I will not write about it. To date, I have written about over 750 establishments, and have not written anything negative on my blog. I feel that while many establishments and owners strive to provide the best food, service, hospitality, and overall experience for their customers, nothing and nobody is perfect, and I prefer not to engage in spreading negativity or publicly pointing out faults, there are plenty of other people and services that do this. I do however share with any establishment whether I am going to write about them or not, and I will share any issues that came up during my visit which could be improved upon. If an establishment meets more stringent standards of excellence, these establishments may be considered to be recognized as Golden Palate® or Platinum Palate® Partners of Fred Bollaci Enterprises, and awarded The Golden Palate or Platinum Palate Certificate of Excellence® and recognition on this site and on Fred Bollaci Enterprises social media. Once an establishment has been recognized as a Golden or Platinum Palate®, they are invited to consider Charter Membership, which includes a host of benefits, as well as opportunities to further collaborate.”

Golden and Platinum Palate® and Charter Members also have the opportunity to be featured in VENU Magazine, where Fred Bollaci is the Food Editor, and Social Media Manager, as well as on VENU social media and are offered unique opportunities to collaborate on future events in conjunction with VENU magazine.
