But its a ID ! Why # though?

  const nameInput = $(".restaurantNameInput").val();
  const inputreview = $(".restaurantReviewInput").val();
  $("#newRestaurant h3").text(nameInput);
  $("#newRestaurant p").text(inputreview);

I tried to enter the code as it clearly is an ID. Tried to run it for approx 10-15 minutes, just to realize that we need to use # in restaurantreviewinput But why the # ? Its an ID, not a class!

The "#" is the token that identifies an ID. If it had been a class, the token would be period "." instead. And a selector with no token at all is taken to be a tag name (like "h3" or "p").

The sample code above contains examples of all three kinds.
