Restaurants & Bars "could not understand the location San Francisco"

Melanie Wong Oct 14, 2009 03:43 PM

At the top of the Restaurants & Bars page for the San Francisco region,
http://www.chow.com/restaurants/regio... .
the search box is preloaded with "San Francisco". However, when I try to find something by typing a criteria in for something near "San Francisco", I get this message.

"We could not understand the location San Francisco.

Suggestions:

* San Francisco, CA
* 2nd and Howard, San Francisco, Ca
* 94105"

    I was just going to post about this. The ability to add a new restuarant is gone.

    Even if entering San Francisco, Ca you get that message.

      Ditto for New York.

      I was still able to search for places using Google (venue name + site:chow.com).

      And here's a link that should give you the "Add a Restaurant or Bar" option ... http://search.chow.com/search?query=a...

        I just tried to look for something in Milpitas and get the same suggestions, namely,

        We could not understand the location Milpitas, CA.

        Suggestions:

        * San Francisco, CA
        * 2nd and Howard, San Francisco, Ca
        * 94105

          I'm now finding that San Francisco works but other, not clearly defined, subdivisions don't. I can't search on many of our own suggestions. I've raised a ticket for Engineering to take a look.
