The normal way would be to simply embed it into a <content  
type="xhtml"> element. I don't think there are very many microformat  
parsers that will read feeds and check content for microformats  
though. The latest version of Swignition does, but it's not a  
thoroughly tested feature.

As an alternative, you could consider using RSS 1.0 (instead of Atom)  
which uses RDF for extensibility. This is because there's already a  
review vocabulary for RDF which is fairly widely used, and strongly  
influenced by the design of hReview.
