Broke the app as fast as calendars are concerned 1/5
After making a reservation, there used to be an easy way to add the reservation to my calendar and invite others (send them the calendar entry) using a share extention.
Now they force you to use imessage sick is highly and clunky and if the other person doesn't want opentable installed, there is no way for them to add to their calendar or reply.
Broke a key part of the convenience!
Tge watch app also does not work at all.
By Charlie Latham
The service was superb. The food was delicious and very fresh. I have not had this great of experience and quality in a long time. I eat out for all meals and have lived in New York for 4 years. I travel around the world for work and always eat at 5 star restaurants. This is on my top ten.
By Chaos Virus
Works as advertised with minimal friction. Guest-mode is great for getting familiar with things before signing up.
Update: The issue with stalled updates is fixed, at least for my device. No longer need to delete and reinstall to complete installation.
Used to be great 2/5
What used to be a great service and app has deteriorated significantly. Restaurants cancel reservations after fulfillment of them to avoid awarding points. There are fewer and fewer restaurants on OpenTable now and options are becoming very limited. By the way, I live in the Miami area and there's no shortage of restaurants.
Removed the “add to calendar” option 1/5
By Slithy Toves
This baffles me. Going out to a restaurant, there are a few things that are important - which restaurant, the address, the day, and the time. In the past, there was a button to hit that would put all of this information in my calendar. I wouldn’t even call it a feature, as it’s the most obvious thing in the world. Think of it like assuming that a calculator app has a plus sign button. If it lacks that plus sign button, you know the developer made a serious error.
Guess what, the OpenTable people made a serious error. How is this even a thing?
Don’t miss it! 5/5
In DC for a business trip, stopped in for dinner. Great food, great service!! Everyone was very friendly and informative. Loved the dog wall near the restrooms! Definitely coming back the next time I’m in DC.
App is much improved 5/5
By Larry 10000
Using the app just got a lot easier. I enjoy the speed and ease of making a reservation now. This app is great
Best Restaurant App by far 5/5
No other system compares to OpenTable and the app works seamlessly. Keep adding restaurants and continue to grow your reach!!
Quick and easy to make a reservation 5/5
I love this app. It makes it so easy to make a dinner reservation whether I am in town or visiting a new area. I have never had a conflict when going to restaurants with them not being able to accommodate my reservation.
Why can’t I modify a time on an existing reservation? 4/5
That’s why I gave 4 / 5 stars
Redeeming points 1/5
By unfair practices
It used to be a simple process to redeem points, a check was sent in the mail. Now, open table and certain opentable restaurants are taking a percentage of your points at restaurants opentable works with. Ex: made a reservation at the Signature Room, I planned to redeem $200 to use at the restaurant. Open Table and the Signature Room.will charge 50% $100 for the reservation because it was not on the short list of restaurants that accept the full amount.
Fabulous and Time-Saving App 5/5
I love Open Table for making quick reservations when I already know which restaurant we want and it's especially handy and convenient when we are shopping restaurants to see what restaurants are available and at what time they have reservations. I wish more of our local Fort Worth restaurants would use the service.
The Indispensable App 5/5
Please bring back ability to add reservation to calendar 3/5
App is too busy now
Just want the simple add to calendar button back / don't need all the extra features it's too many items
Love the app! 5/5
By Fix it please....
This has to be one of the most useful apps around. Using it makes getting reservations a breeze. I can’t understand why any restaurant would be without it!
A few issues... 4/5
I agree with other users that it takes too many clicks to pick a table in another city for multiple people and at a different time. A redesign of setting up a reservation may be in order. Also, to invite someone to a reservation, you now use iMessage. Requires the other party have the app installed...would be much easier to give them a calendar invite.
Great when it works 2/5
More often than not now I get “Open Table is having trouble communicating with the restaurant.” I have lost many reservations because of this and frankly I avoid using open table now unless it’s the only way to make the reservation
Weird Sunday buffet 1/5
We were seated in a dining area completely apart from the buffet. There was a prime rib carver, but she didn’t know if she could find a cut to match my rareness request. Took forever to get a check to leave a buffet meal. Definitely not coming back in the mornings.
Love this App 5/5
I have used this app in town on numerous occasions and it has worked great and without issues. I have even used it while traveling and again worked perfectly.
Would recommend to anyone.
Calendar Add!!! 1/5
5 star to 1 star until the add to calendar feature is restored. Since a recent update, this app doesn't allow you to add a reservation to your own calendar on an iPhone 6 or an iPhone SE. Looking at other reviews, it looks like I'm not the only one with this problem. Key functionality - Fail.
Excellent App. 5/5
This app has made the hassle of making reservations a breeze. 10/10 recommend to anyone who likes to go out to eat frequently.
First time 5/5
First time using the app and turn out for the best. Recommend you using.
Love Open Table! 5/5
No more waiting for a table...and I love the recommendations I get for new spots to try.
Easy to use and most reviews come from goodies!
Unintuitive user interface 3/5
Made reservation but instead of showing the address for the location booked, it showed only the name of the restaurant.
When I tried to modify the reservation after canceling the first booking so I could book elsewhere on Open Table, the app wouldn't allow me to.
Can’t Modify Reservation 1/5
Open Table gives you the option to modify a reservation if need be, then won’t let you actually do it. What gives???
Easy to use. Reliable. Efficient.
Most convenient and helpful app! 4/5
So easy to use. Never experienced hiccups with restaurants. Love Open Table rewards! One stop for all information your need. I didn't give 5 stars because I still don't see some of my favorite restaurants on the app. Just booked my daughter's birthday dinner.
The best 5/5
Fantastic! I’ve used this app for over four years and it is always a great place to reserve a table today or for a date in the future. You can add in special requests for the restaurant and can also look at menu & dress code. Much easier than making a call. It is also good to use on travel. Highly recommended! Love it.
Open table is the coolest 5/5
How could you NOT like Open Table ? You get to visit great restaurants while earning points towards a check to use at another great restaurant. I wish more restaurants were associated with it. At the same time, I’ve tried many new places I probably wouldn’t have gone to because of Open Table. Gotta love it ‼️😁
Umm. Where is add to calendar function 2/5
Seems I should be able to easily add a reservation to my calendar. Fail.
Marsh House 5/5
Rated Open Table. Marsh House gets a low rating due to way less than fresh seafood. Ew!
Use to be a better AP 2/5
It’s difficult to add reservations to my calendar. Older version had an easy button to quickly add to calendar. Now I can’t figure out how to do appears only after email sent can I add. I like doing right after confirmation on site. Also when inviting others to reservation looks like text only. Just more cumbersome
Blown away by the quality of the food. Greek salad and Beet Salads were amazing. Surf and turf was 5 Star! We will be back and with friends!
By General mom
I have been making all my dinner reservations through Open Table for years. Gift certificates to relatives and friends have been much appreciative.
Taste the Deliciousness that IS Pacino’s 5/5
Warm greeting upon entering...prompt seating...and, marvelously professional attendance by Angelo, our Server. Menu is diverse and offers a dish from most regions in Italy. Our party started w/the Calamari — fried just crisp enough — with a delightfully complementary Marinara, and Italian Salads. We followed those w/Chicken and Shrimp Ala Vodka, and a just-right-amount-of-spicy Arrabiata w/Shrimp and Linguini. Both dishes were generous in portion, perfectly spiced and prepared, beautifully presented, and, OH SO TASTY! Pricing was VERY reasonable. Nothing but positives for Pacino’s!! We’ve added them to our finely curated listing of Favorites.
New Update is terrible 2/5
Who ever the idiot that thought it was a good idea to remove the “add reservation to calendar” from the app should be fired. I’ve never more frustrated in trying to use an app and the developer removes features.
Put it back.
Love this app 5/5
This app makes getting a dinner reservation so easy. Many participating restaurants.
Need an update 2/5
App has been crashing as of late, rendering the app unusable.
Convenient, Easy & Reliable 5/5
Either planning ahead or making last-minute reservations this app has become a lifesaver for me! You can get an idea of what the restaurant is like by reviews and ratings, make your reservation and have confidence that your reservation is actually there when you show up. 🙌🏽🙏🏽
Open table is easy! 5/5
Worst Date night ever! 5/5
We got to Revery and there was a large group that we were seated right next to. The waitress immediately apologized for how loud they were. We asked to move to another table and the waitress said I’m giving them their checks, don’t worry. Long story short they never left. We had our meal and couldn’t even have a conversation due to the noise. The restaurant was out of our favorite dinner due to the large party. Our waitress was overwhelmed so the service was below average. We never got asked how the meal was or if we wanted dessert. We took our check and got out of there.
I have had my Apple Watch for a few weeks now and I love it. How ever the open table app won’t load. I am logged into it on my phone and according the Apple Watch it says I’m not logged in. I restarted my iPhone and Apple Watch and, Even deleted and reinstalled the apps and it still won’t work. Please help! Thank you ~
Non- Cooker 5/5
I love the easy access Open Table has to making reservations. It’s such an easy app to navigate and I use it all the time.
Almost Daily Use 5/5
Flawless and easy to use. Often wonder what we did before Open Table
This app makes reservations simple 5/5
We have had great experiences using this app in multiple cities and resort locations. We love it!
Lacks clarity 1/5
Since the program was updated in Oct 2017, one cant even redeem rewards using the app, and nowhere does it explain how the program really works; if you redeem a $20 reward and a certain reservation only honors $10, you lose the other $10, things like that.
Can’t Book Multiple in a Night 3/5
By Disappointed Weather Channel
Love hate relationship with this app. I use it all the time. Several times a week in fact. I just hate that if I leave one restaurant and want to go to another, Open Table seems to want to enforce some arbitrary time. Like now, here it is an hour after I’ve left one place and unable to book another restaurant. This happens far too often with no clear indicator of when the previous reservation will release. Paying with Apple Pay doesn’t speed up the process!
At least one out of every three times I make a reservation through open table they tell me I didn’t show up. I have to send receipts and restaurant confirmation. And then apparently I can only redeem my points at certain destinations. Get your act together open table
Cool but can be more user friendly when reviewing 4/5
This is a cool app where you can make reservations and reviews. It can be better by being more intuitive for the user uploading pictures and writing reviews. I also hope that they will have the other restaurants that are not yet linked to them.
App is unresponsive 1/5
The app will not allow me to modify my reservations. I can change it but it won’t keep the change. App still needs work.
