The A, B or C rating reflects whether critical violations were found and corrected. This grading system appears in all restaurants, as well as food facilities such as school cafeterias, daycare centers, and cafes and bars where food is sold.

“A” grade means the facility inspection found no critical violations. “B” grade means critical violations were found but corrected under the supervision of the inspecting environmentalist. No further corrective actions are required.  “C” grade means critical violations were found, but some or all were not corrected during the inspection. The facility will be re-inspected, and all violations must be corrected in a time period not to exceed 10 days.
