You’re hoping for a good dinner at a popular restaurant. The only problem is you’re not sure if there’ll be an free table for you and your date. If that sounds like a familiar problem then OpenTable could very easily become your familiar solution.
Like the name already suggests, OpenTable is a lifestyle app that provides users with status updates on the tables that can be found across thousands of different restaurants. If OpenTable sounds like a useful app to have on your phone it is because it is. Say you’re in a bind to find a good restaurant for you and your date within 24 hrs, it’s got an invaluable feature that provides you with 20 of the closest available restaurants that can cater to your needs. OpenTable also offers you further assistance with the inclusion of ratings and reviews that you can use when making your eventual decisions.
OpenTable is fairly easy to use. All that people will need to do is specify the day and time that they wish to go out on dinner as well as provide related details such as the size of their dining troupe. Once these details are provided, OpenTable compiles a list of the different available restaurants sorted by their proximity.
With over 14,000 different restaurants located across two continents, OpenTable is a fairly formidable dining ally. Sadly, its efficiency is not spread equally across every locations. While searches in some cities might yield over a hundred different related results, a similar search in another city might yield nothing. This lack of consistency is likely to leave many people frustrated and a little disappointed. Still, for the periods when it does work, OpenTable is a superb app to have on your team. You might not be able to afford eating at all the 5 star restaurants on its displayed list.
But you’ll know about them and that certainly counts for something.
