First, you want to keep accumulating more reviews.

How to increase the number of 5-star reviews? The easiest and best way is by simply asking your paying customers at checkout. For example, if you’re a coffee shop barista that likes to interact with customers, most likely the person that just placed their order is going to be happy and agreeable to leave a 5-star review. Make it easy for people to leave reviews, have a review button pop immediately after someone checks out online or paying on a cashier tablet. One can also place QR codes on each table in the venue so that anyone can just populate the review page like Google reviews or Facebook and leave feedback seamlessly.

When responding be sure to admit fault if it’s on your end but feel free to disagree with the customer if you believe the organization did the most it could at the time of the issue. Negative reviews that feel staged or unbelievable should be reported to Google or Facebook, this way they can possibly be removed altogether.
