LocalEats is a venture-backed restaurant information/recommendation service that operates in the United States and in 50 international cities.

It developed a popular iPhone application[1] and has a website similar to Google-owned Zagat, Yelp, and IAC/InterActiveCorp-owned Urbanspoon.[2] In early 2011, LocalEats launched its iPad app, which added 50 international cities[3] to its U.S.-based guide. Later in 2011, LocalEats partnered with restaurant deal aggregator BiteHunter[4] to bring deal information into its website and app for deals at LocalEats featured restaurants.

The firm has also partnered with VC-backed SinglePlatform[5] to offer in-app menus for more than 12,000 of its 14,000 selected restaurants.
