What Are
The Servies?


The Servies exist to celebrate front-of-house restaurant employees. We are committed to sharing the stories of these diverse, customer-facing staff who keep restaurants running, go above and beyond for customers, and bring their best attitudes to work, no matter what life throws at them.

How it works

Coworkers, customers, friends and family--anyone can nominate front-of-house staff to win a Servie. You can even nominate yourself! Then, our esteemed panel of judges select the finalists, and the public votes to determine the winners.


Meet the Yelp for restaurants team


In 2020, we built a new team of experts and technology to tackle the future of the restaurant industry and called it Yelp for Restaurants. The Servies was born from our belief that we can help restaurants turn the tables on this ever-changing industry, because we’ve done it ourselves.
