Finding Restaurants Based on Ambiance? There's Now an App for That

A new app called Hoppit allows you to filter restaurants by mood, eliminating the guesswork in finding a romantic spot for a date or a calm, serviceable spot for that big meeting.

There are plenty of apps that help you choose where to eat based on how good the food is, but what if you want to find a cozy spot to take your 2 year old? Shouldn't the general "feel" of an eatery come into play when making a decision? That's just what a new app called Hoppit helps you do.

The iOS, Android and web-based app allows you to filter restaurants by mood, eliminating the guesswork in finding a romantic spot for a date or a calm, serviceable spot for that big meeting. Each listing also has gads of indoor photos so you can be certain the feng shui is up to your unparalleled standards.

So far the service is only available in 11 cities nationwide, but the company plans to roll it out to many more areas in the coming months. For now, much of the country will have to choose restaurants the old fashioned way, by using Yelp.

Watch the video to see the app in action.
