Hard to tell if she is saying "Sie isst im Restaurant" or "Sie ist im Restaurant". Are both correct in this case?

ist would be "she is in the restaurant" isst would be "she eats in the restaurant"

I know but hard to tell when you have to transcribe what you hear from the speakers. I figured it was isst because of the category

although, if you put in ist instead of isst, the system accepts both answers. For the record, I believe that there is a distinct difference between the two.

I put "Sie ist im Restaurant" and didn't get it wrong, so I think both are correct.

"Sie ist im Restaurant" - I did the same but in the translated English portion it said "She is eating in the Restaurant" so now I am curious if there is no difference between eating in the Restaurant and simply being in the Restaurant in the German language.

In audio questions (listen and type) it is easy for us to confuse ist and isst. Therefore DL acceptes both. But they are not the same.

Thank you for clearing that up!

Why "She eats in restaurant" is wrong?

"im" is a contraction of "in the" or "at the", so the translation "she eats in restaurant" is not very accurate.
