Ratings provide a snapshot of food safety success, but reviewing an establishment's history gives a more complete view Whether you’re a restaurant manager or are curious about a specific food establishment's safety record, inspection scores can help. Inspection scores provide a snapshot of how successfully a business met food handling, storage, processing and service standards on a given day. To get the most accurate picture of a food establishment’s overall commitment to food safety and sanitation, you are encouraged to look at the inspection history of an establishment, not just a single inspection. On any given day, a restaurant may have fewer or more violations than noted in their most recent inspection.

What's the difference between a regular/routine inspection and a re-inspection? A regular/routine inspection is a periodic unannounced inspection of a permitted food facility to determine compliance with health code standards. These inspections are conducted one to four times each year depending upon the risk assessment classification assigned to an establishment. If a food establishment is found to pose an imminent threat to public health, it is asked to discontinue operation until violations have been corrected. Legal action is taken in the event that an establishment refuses to voluntarily discontinue operation.
A re-inspection is made following a regular/routine inspection to determine compliance with health code standards.This inspection may be unannounced or scheduled and can occur any number of times.
