Online Restaurant Reservations

It seems like you can do anything online, these days. Not to be left out, restaurants are part of the cyber-world with I used the website the other day to book a table for lunch as part of our outing on Saturday.

Unfamiliar with OpenTable? For diners, concierges and administrative professionals, the website provides a fast, efficient way to find available tables that meet desired criteria for cuisine, price and location at a specified time. Reservations are free and can be made around the clock. The website is directly connected to the thousands of computerized reservation systems at OpenTable restaurants. Search results reflect actual, "real-time" availability and reservations are immediately recorded in the same electronic reservation book used by the maitre'd. You can go either directly to their website or often you'll find links to it within the actual restaurant website where the site offers you an opportunity to make a reservation.

If you don't know where you would like to dine, there are search options based on type of restaurant and location. There are also reward points given, although I have never earned enough to redeem anything. Bon appetit!
