If you’ve been paying attention, you know just how revolutionary and downright scary the launch of ChatGPT has been.

Since its November release, the artificial intelligence software, based around a highly intelligent conversational bot’s responses to user questions, has been writing extensive essays, code, poetry, and just about everything in between.

But what about something as personal as restaurant recommendations? We decided to put the bots to the test by asking them “can you recommend the best restaurants in Vancouver, BC, Canada?”

Here’s the response from the AI platform taking the world by storm. The following is a direct transcript from ChatGPT:

It can be difficult to determine the “best” restaurants, as personal preferences for food and atmosphere vary widely. That being said, here are a few highly regarded restaurants in Vancouver that are worth considering.
