Sample Answer 1 (201 Words, 12 Sentences, 6 Paragraphs, Band 9)To the Editor,
I am writing to review my recent visit to Yummy Restaurant. I made a reservation for my sister's birthday bash which occurred last week. Originally I thought only ten people would attend, but apparently the number increased to fifteen people on the day. At first, I was worried that it would not be possible for the restaurant to accommodate more people. However, I was pleasantly surprised when the Manager told me that they could do it and would even upgrade our room to a more spacious one. The overall service was impeccable and the party went smoothly, thanks to the great staff.
We ordered a three-course set menu and the taste was top notch. The escargot entree was absolutely divine that I could still remember the taste of its garlic butter sauce till now. My sister ordered pan-fried salmon fillet with mashed potatoes as the main course, and people were raving about it. The dessert was a mini opera which I thought to be rather average, though it might simply because I do not have sweet tooth.
Overall, we experienced a wonderful night at this restaurant. This place is highly recommended and we have even started planning our next visit.

Sample Answer 2 (159 Words, 8 Sentences, 7 Paragraphs, Band 9)To the Editor,
I am a long standing member of our local community and I am writing a recommendation to other citizens for one of our fine neighborhood dining establishments; The Lone Star Café.
There were many impressive attributes which struck me upon my entrance, such as the décor and audience. I particularly enjoyed the laid back attitude of the place. But for my mind it was the service along with the size and quality of the portions that was most memorable.
The service was professional yet intimate, and along with the sheer quantity of the dishes served, motivated me to pass on my recommendation. I enjoyed a steak of mammoth proportions and a giant fresh, crisp salad accompanied by a selection of appropriately selected seasonal vegetables. The piece de resistance, however, was the rich Black Forest gateau served as dessert –and all for a reasonable price.
I hope after reading this, potential customers will frequent this diner – Bon appetite.
