DiamondDesignation for Restaurants

AAA’s professional inspections and designations are always consistent and reliable because we use published guidelines based on member expectations and industry standards. That’s why you can count on the AAA inspections team to give your establishment an accurate, insightful measure of how to meet member needs and stay industry competitive.

The guidelines outline the extensive list of attributes inspectors review to determine if an establishment qualifies to be a AAA Diamond Restaurant – if so – the appropriate Diamond designation level based on the type of experience provided.
