OpenTable, the web-enabled restaurant management provider, has introduced a new mobile feature that lets users make restaurant reservations from their from their phone’s browser. The new site, which is available here, supports the 8,500 OpenTable restaurants scattered across the country.
To book a table, users specify the date and the restaurant they wish to dine in, and the site presents a list of available times. Alternatively, users can request to see all available listings for restaurants in the area – a feature that will be a lifesaver for those last-minute anniversary reservations. A quick run through the site on an iPhone worked well, allowing me to find an available restaurant and book a table in less than two minutes.
OpenTable offers restaurants a reservation management solution that allows prospective diners to reserve tables from the web. Since its launch in 1999, the site claims to have booked over 70 million diners across its 8,500 restaurants.
