I agree, we use TripAdvisor all the time for restaurants and things to do and see. And you do get good advice as you mentioned from other users.
Another site I use is RoadFood.com for restautant recommendations. Its not as easy as TripAdvisor in that it is a forum similar to IRV2.. but it is about restaurants so you do get some good recommendations for the area you are visiting.
