I’ve looked everywhere possible and can’t find where to delete the reviews for a few of my products.  The obvious place is ‘Customer Reviews> All Reviews’ but nothing shows up—even after filtering the list.

I assume they are kept somewhere in an XML file or database table?

I just found that when i click on the review it doesn’t actually show a review.  Instead i get prompted to add a new review.  Here is an example:

I’ll give this one more shot...anyone experiencing this or have a solution? 

• Product reviews randomly showing up on the front end for existing AND new products, but no reviews to speak of on the backend...even after refreshing the list.  gulp

I found a workaround - as long as you don’t actually want to sell the sample items in the demo installation store....

If you delete the actual products under “manage products” - the accompanying reviews will be deleted also.

hope that helps.

I solved this problem by creating a new review for the product and then deleted it via admin. Seems to be a Magento bug (happend in 1.3.2.3 for me) but i have no clue why it appeared.
