We made it through 2016! What a wild year.

During this time, we tend to look back and recap the year -- the top moments, worst moments, and most memorable. We were curious to see what the year's best eateries were in Phoenix.

We reached out to Yelp to see what its reviewers said. Yelp crunched the numbers and came up with their top 10 lists.

Yelp's top 10 restaurants of 2016:

Surprisingly, none of the year's big-name restaurant newsmakers, such as Chicago-based Lou Malnati's opening at Uptown Plaza or Chris Bianco's Tratto opening in Phoenix, made the list.

Yelp said it created its list using reviews and star ratings. Only those businesses categorized as a "restaurant" and a non-chain were included.
