When you review a restaurant how much importance do you give the food, service, decor and ambiance? Are they all important? Can a restaurant get a good review if one of these areas is lacking?

The food is very important. The other factors are much less so, and while they occasionally affect the final rating, I'd say that's pretty rare. To put it another way, great food forgives a lot of sins.
