The ever popular restaurant review website, Yelp.com, is now planning on adding city Health Department letter grades along with customer reviews.

Over the next few weeks the grades will be automatically uploaded to the site.

New York City is not the only city with grading systems for restaurants; a similar grading system will be made available today in San Francisco and expected to also make its way to Philadelphia and Chicago Yelp sites.

Many restaurant owners are worried that having the grades on the website will confuse their customers.

“You can have an A grade then fail an inspection, but while waiting for the tribunal keep posting an A — while someone will have a ‘grade pending’ [and] may actually be fighting to change a B to an A,” said CEO of the Alicart Restaurant Group which owns Carmine’s and Virgil’s Real Barbecue, Jeffrey Bank.
