  • Good App, but Needs Improvement Dec 17, 2018

    By Cucina Saporita
    I love the convenience of making reservations on this app, but I’ve given it 3 stars as it needs some improvements to go from good to great. OpenTable is great as most places use it, but if a competitor were to come up with a better user experience, I’d switch in a heartbeat. 1) Needs functionality to redeem points for dining coupons electronically. It’s 2018, why can’t I get a barcode that can be scanned at a restaurant? I tried to redeem points last weekend and it said to go to my desktop...some folks don’t even use a desktop outside of work. This is a huge miss. 2) Needs a better layout of local restaurants and navigation. I’ll search for local restaurants and after listing a few, it jumps to those 20 miles away. I’m in a huge metro suburb and I want to narrow in on a certain town and not get mixed results with places far away. I go out a lot and do a mix of city and suburbs but for folks not familiar with the area, it could be deceiving. For example, searching for something close by and you see an interesting place and don’t realize it’s further than you wanted until you click on the restaurant to explore.

    I travel for business all over North America. This is one of my favorite restaurants. When they reopened after the Covid shut down, the first week I made a reservation. I have been there at least once or twice each month if not more since then. This is one of the most Covid conscious restaurants I frequent. They sanitize each station after patrons leave and they require masks to be worn when moving through the restaurant. From the maître d’ to the servers, head waitress and bartender‘s they all practice safe Covid measures. I’ve been here enough to know that there have been no Covid cases with any of the staff I am familiar with. Dale Wanstad and his family are probably the top restauranteur’s in the United States. He has had a string of successes for decades in the restaurant business. Food is always consistent and excellent. I have traveled all over North America I’ve been into many five star restaurants but to me there is none better this one. Texas is the place to be for fine dining and a feel good atmosphere. .

    I usually don't load up with apps like this but this one earned it's home screen real estate. Reservations are never questioned when I arrive at the restaurant, it shows great communication between Open Table and the client. Searches, menus, etc are all up to date and consistently accurate.

    It's a useful service that I've used for years but there are a couple of annoying things about the app: 1) first of all, because you're on mobile, the app defaults you to "book a table near me now" mode and it's a little hard to navigate out of that. Most of the time I'm using the app, it's because I'm on the go or in a meeting - not because I need a table right then. It's annoying to constantly figure out how to book a table for a future date, in a distant neighborhood. It takes way too many clicks to do this. App designers: there's more than one mobile use case; more than one user journey. 2) rebooking a table doesn't seem to work. I tried at various times of the day and kept getting error messages, or no error just no success. I ended up having to call the restaurant directly which to me, defeats a lot of the purpose of OpenTable. Also, as others have noted, using rewards is a pain. This is the fault of the company, not the app, so it doesn't figure into my app rating, but I would advise against giving an Open Table gift certificate as a gift to anyone. There are way too many limitations, rules, and annoying steps to redeem.

  • Thank God this place opened in our neighborhood! Dec 10, 2018

    By Dee Honest Ratings
    All I can say is WOW WOW WOW! We came here for the second time (first time yesterday) and still the same review! Fresh homemade food served as described, but even better! The past two days we have almost tried everything and took food home to go! Amazingly, delicious food and it’s going to be hard not to drive by and stop no matter what! I recommend the calamari, hummus, pizzas, the lamb (doesn’t matter burger or the entree). This place knows the proper cooking temps on the lamb and the “Mediterranean” is truly “Mediterranean” if you know what it should taste like! Also, the talent within the restaurant is professional, well-versed on the menu and the wine list. Customer service is definitely a 5+ along with the food! You have a diverse variety of food to choose from such as pasta, pizza, seafood and it’s all amazing! A must try and you will be hooked! Seriously, it is one of the best restaurants in the valley!

    List restaurants in a bizarre order - some 50 miles away mixed in with some up the road. Would work much better to have a limited search radius and map to find local restaurants more easily. Have managed to make a booking when I've finally found a restaurant I'm looking for, so 2 stars for that.

  • What a mess. Jun 15, 2019

    By HahahaComedy
    I've had this app for about 5 minutes and I'm ready to delete it. I booked a table on my desktop and it asked me for my email address for the confirmation. Then it said to open an account to keep track of the reservation and have me the option of logging in with Google (which is different than my email address I used to send the confirmation). So I went to my account and sure enough the reservation isn't there. I try downloading the app and guess what? No option to log in with Google on the app. So I go back to the desktop to change the password because my Google password doesn't work on the "log in with open table" option. I get into the app, no reservations. I go to the email confirmation I received and click on change/view reservation and it of course takes me to my profile page for the account with no reservations. So I click on add to calendar and invite Google email to my own reservation. In the account I get a notification that I was invited, and then accept. Then I click on upcoming reservations and there are no reservations. And the alert icon is still red letting me know I was invited to my own reservation.

  • Poor Administration Feb 17, 2020

    By ds715
    This app just continues to go downhill and they don’t seem to care. First, it became a regular thing to receive nasty emails accusing me of skipping reservations without cancelling when I fact we actually were at the restaurant. Now they can’t seem to track or maintain points. I used the app this past weekend but received no points. Instead, I received an email that the restaurant was not eligible for points, after we’d eaten there. I was told (1) that I needed to be logged into Open Table when I made the reservation and (2) I was told that I had to tell Open Table I wanted to receive points for the restaurant by checking a box on the reservation. I was logged into the app when I made the reservation!!! There was no checkbox or any other instructions related to to telling them I wanted to receive points!!! I’ve had this app for several years and this is the first time I did not receive points! I never had to check a box to say I wanted point omg the past, and looking at the app, there is no box to check. Horrible customer service and customer relations! This is a great app for making reservations at many of our favorite restaurants. But it’s becoming more and more regular that we’re told we’ve missed a reservation that we actually made. It’s frustrating to have to defend ourselves for missing reservations we haven’t missed. Open Table and there participating restaurants need to develop a better process for confirming and tracking.

    OpenTable is easy to use to find restaurants available at the selected time and shows lots of information about the place. I have especially liked it during the COVID pandemic because some restaurants are not allowing inside dinning and with this app you can quickly see what types of dinning options are available.

  • Easy breezy to use with one big flaw Feb 24, 2018

    By fygar
    Great app, use it all the time. But, one thing that has to be fixed is the restaurant search feature, which doesn't seem to care how far a restaurant is from your location if there is no restaurant with that name locally. Example: Searched for a restaurant and selected my city. The results give me first a restaurant that’s 400 miles away in another country followed by restaurants in my country that I guess were more farther away by distance. Okay, so no restaurant with that name locally, so just tell me! How about saying there are no restaurants with that name locally, followed by similar cuisine restaurant suggestions? Or even better, be able to select criteria that most closely fit that restaurant profile? That would be a lot more useful than accidentally reserving a restaurant 400 miles away in another country!

  • Great way to make and track dinner plans Feb 3, 2018

    By BirdGuy-7
    The new interface took a little getting used to but the app still works great. It is easy to search restaurants and times. One feature I would like to see added: search the next availability for a specific time. This would help with really popular places that always seem to be booked. ---- Update: this is still my go-to when I want to make a res. It used to be easier to send a notice of the reservation to others from within the app, but now they want you to link other party members which presumes they have the app themselves. Now I just wait until I get the confirmation email and forward that. I used a $100 reward a couple years ago and need to claim another.

  • Changing locations in search Jan 27, 2019

    By Jon Weymann
    For the most part, the app is great except if you travel a lot, trying to get it to look for restaurants in a particular location that you are not currently in is extremely frustrating and difficult to make work. For example, at the moment, you’re in city XYZ but tomorrow going to city ABC and you want to search and book a restaurant in ABC for tomorrow is not a user friendly proposition. The same applies if your in a large city, NY, for example, but looking for a restaurant in a suburb or outlying city, very frustrating. It seems to default to current location which is only good if that’s where you’re trying to find a restaurant, otherwise a frustrating experience.

  • Improvements made May 26, 2019

    By Ekim7434
    First of all, who are these people detailing the restaurant’s tilapia and their server ignoring them on what is supposed to be the Open Table app review?! This is not Yelp, folks. This latest update resolved my ire with the searching. We can FINALLY search for restaurants in San Francisco in its entirety. For a long while you had to specify a SF neighborhood when looking for an available restaurant i.e. 3 people at noon in the Mission, San Francisco, CA. Every other city, you were able to indicate and search by just the city name all except for SF. Looks like the capability has returned. But scrolling through the list of restaurants was and still remains to be both annoying af and difficult as where my finger lands to swipe up or down to move the page up or down, it’ll attempt to drag and drop that restaurant as a link to a message whether text or email. Why anyone ever thought that would be a good idea when everyone in the app is using a touch screen phone is beyond me. Can we get that fixed, please?

  • Harder to use than desktop Jan 6, 2018

    By fashiondisaster
    I’ve been using Open Table on my laptop since the early 00’s and switched to the app about two years ago. They have a pretty big base of restaurants to choose from and I’ve discovered a lot of long-standing favorites as a result of exploring. My biggest complaint about the app is that the map search feature regularly resets itself when you try to zoom in too closely on a neighborhood. The overall navigation is a little difficult, compared to the desktop version, (which I sometimes pull up on my phone if I need to find something fast). It’s also not possible to redeem rewards on the app, which is frustrating. Their rewards system has changed to a less desirable redemption process as well, but I guess that is unrelated to the app itself.

  • Accruing points should not be optional. Jul 10, 2018

    By KDB6151
    I very much like using Open Table & periodically check to see if there are any additional restaurants in the area that are affiliated with OT. It’s very convenient & quick to use. More restaurants should use it. However, I haven’t used the app in a while until I went on vacation & wanted to make a reservation. I was in a hurry & did not take notice to the option to earn points, and of course missed earning points. It makes me mad that I missed the opportunity to earn points for that reservation. This makes no sense to me whatsoever. Why wouldn’t I want to earn points? Of course I want points! And if it’s optional, then it should be turned on by default. If someone doesn’t want points for some reason, let them be the ones that have to opt out.

  • Exceptional? May 25, 2018

    By Dr.Gid
    My wife and I received a gift certificate as a thank you for our job as educators. We were very excited to try a new restaurant especially one as highly lauded as Erling Jensen. Our server and food were excellent. However, we felt very out of place as the chef visited every single table that surrounded us yet never stopped by our table.... there were only six tables seated. We are hard working dedicated professionals who work just as hard as those seated around us. Again, the food and wait staff were excellent but the obvious exclusion makes any possible return very unlikely. If a person walks into such an establishment they should be afforded the same level of service as everyone one else. What should have been a very romantic and meaningful experience was reduced to an excellent yet uncomfortable meal.

  • Merely Meh for actual help Jul 7, 2018

    By Penmanchip
    I’m now joining the ranks of those who see this app flagging and less focused on the user experience, something that should reveal why such an app should be more useful and valuable in the first place, instead of less valuable and less relevant to user needs. And plus, a pet peeve is any app that offers rewards and then removes them with no notification, alleging inactivity. That’s funny, because I have confirmation numbers which validate activity. So here’s the thing OP. You have competitors and many of them are proving to be more genuine, viable and user friendly because they focus on what users actually want—-like a more nuanced search. So, if you cannot upgrade your app in those critical ways, then why should we choose you? You’re lost, OP, and you are losing us.

  • app does not redeem points May 3, 2018

    By Ddsheets
    App is good for quickly and easily finding reservations but useless for redeeming points. Customers are directed to go to the open table website. Once that is done, after clicking the redeem button that is supposed to send an email with link to redeem, nothing happens. Points are just added back to the account. It has nothing to do with password or cookies. I tried a different fresh computer with the same results. I also spent over a half hour on the phone with a customer service rep who could not remedy the problem. Administration has created a system that has devalued points from when I first started using the app many years ago even if they could be redeemed. Can it be they owe more points to diners than they want to distribute? SCAM? FRAUD? Yelp and google search offer more options.

  • The best dining reservation app Feb 10, 2018

    By ApertureXTC
    I've used OpenTable multiple times on multiple locations. I have never had a problem with the restaurant saying that I did not have a reservation, and I have never had a problem with the application being able to find correct dates and times. This is probably the best application for restaurant explorers or foodies that is on the App Store. If you love to dine and have it be no stress this is a must-have app! Update: I recently bought an Apple Watch (Series 3) and the Open table app keeps saying I have to log in on my phone. I have logged out, then logged in, delete the app off the watch and the phone the reinstalled... still the watch app doesn’t work. A quick Google search shows this is a problem for a lot of people. I can not give this app 5 stars again until this is fixed.

  • Used to be great, now just so-so ... call the restaurants directly! Oct 11, 2019

    By nabby487
    Open Table is only a shadow of what it used to be. Yes, it’s simple and easy to use. But, only 3 stars because of the new “points” system, where the diners have no control over the value of the points when the points are used. To maximize the value of the points, diners have to sacrifice the quality of the restaurants and seating times. The “points” system made Open Table fun to use, now it’s just a source of aggravation. Myself and other frequent diners I know don’t use Open Table as much any more. We reserve directly with the restaurants! Open Table, you’ve done the diners wrong! Hopefully, the genius that dreamed up the new points scheme is long gone from the CEO’s table. It was, and remains, a stupid idea!

  • Was Excited to Enjoy and Let Down Mar 17, 2019

    By Slipstreamer69
    My wife and i are in Park City for a long weekend of skiing and snowboarding. Tonight was out last night here and we were out to celebrate. I have celiac so was excited that they had a massive menu I could enjoy. I also work and travel a ton to Japan so even more excited. We arrived 20 min early. Was going to enjoy a cocktail. We were rudely told we will not be able to sit you for 30 min. That’s fine so we walked around Main St. We came back down at 8:28. At 9:00 still have not sat down. We were placed at the bar so we were “out of the way”. 15-20 minutes later tables were open yet we were still parked. I was tired. My wife was tired. And truthfully did not feel welcome at this place. The food smelled fantastic yet the customer service was terrible. Should have know this would be the case when we arrived people coming up were like don’t even bother. These people are goofy and it’s not worth your time. A great night planned for a great dinner ended with so so pizza a few doors down. Move on people.
