Outcomes of food safety inspections of restaurants and other similar providers of food to the public. (More info)

Data Location



The data available in bulk form (in HTML format) are the restaurant rating scores (from 1-100), restaurant name, last inspection date, a "description" (which includes a range of seats--e.g. 0 to 30 or 31 to 60--and risk level--e.g. high, moderate, or low), an address, city, and zip code.

The restaurant violations are available in bulk, as a downloadable export from the html search interface.

The violations and the points scale are not explained well (if at all). Under the violations sections available data include Inspection Date, Inspection Type, Score (1-100), Grade (e.g. A, B, or C), and Violation Count.

The facility details are also segregated by date, with those rated prior to July 1, 2013 (https://www.lapublichealth.org/rating/) and those rated afterward (here: https://ehservices.publichealth.lacounty.gov/ezsearch).
