Dining out in restaurants is not just about food. It’s also about sound. 

Scientific research shows that background music, noise levels and acoustics affect not only the atmosphere but also the way we taste what we eat and drink. Consumer surveys show that excessive noise is the top complaint in many restaurants with restaurant rating apps like SoundPrint and Zagat providing consumers with the tools they need to vote with their feet to find a quieter restaurant.
