Min spend ruined app 1/5
I used to love this app but now I will never use it again. While i appreciate the rationale for having a minimum spend, the minimum spend amounts recently imposed are not reasonable at all. Roughly $40-$60 minimum spend for a party of 2 - that is outrageous to expect particularly at lower priced restaurants. I could never spend that much for 2 in one meal. Never using this app again unless they revert back to no minimum spend.
What if you don’t have a Facebook account? 1/5
Need a Facebook account to login and use this app. Why?
Listen to your users-minimum spending ruined it all 1/5
I used to use this app multiple times in a day and now I don’t see myself ever using it after the update. Spend $60 at a restaurant that I don’t really want to spend $60 at? What if I don’t want $60 of food?! Too much of a gimmick now. Sad to see this app go downhill, hopefully they get rid of the ridiculous minimum spending requirements.
NO WAY AM I LINKING MY CREDIT CARD 1/5
By Tatap addicted
The new update requires a credit card. If there’s anything we’ve learned in the past year, data breaches are inevitable. I’m fine with the higher minimums, but the thought of seated keeping my credit card data safe is laughable. DO NOT DOWNLOAD & DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR CREDIT CARD INDO.

Eating out with my friends is one of my favorite things to do but as a college student and trying to stay within my budget it has become more difficult. I had to reduce the number of times I ate outside… until I met Seated. The concept it’s incredible and it’s a win-win scenario for everyone. They are basically subsidizing my meal and allowing me to do what I like the most for half the price. Besides, the type of rewards that they offer are ones that I actually use: Uber, Amazon, what else could you ask for? And not only that, I love the design of their app and how I can easily search for new places thanks to the different categories that they have.
I really hope that they keep adding more restaurants and fun rewards!
Great app 5/5
Let me start by saying that this is a great app. First, they are offering higher rewards now depending on party size which is amazing!! Second, thanks to this app my boyfriend takes me out to eat more because he loves getting rewarded in Uber credits. I have tried amazing places that I would have never gone to. I also travel a lot for work and never know where to eat. I use seated to search for restaurants since I know they only offer the best restaurants. Totally recommend this app to all foodies and wanna be foodies out there
Use my code “MINDY19” when you sign up for $5!
Went from first to worst. 1/5
I just deleted my APP. You now have to spend a minimum, which is ridiculously high, to get your reward. When searching through the APP, you find a place, book the reservation, only to get a text an hour later that they cannot accommodate you. Extremely unprofessional, annoying and a major time waster. Customer service blows.
Great app! Super convenient for finding good local eats and the rewards come in pretty handy also. It helps that the app clearly tells you what kind of food the restaurant offers as well as other characteristics like ambiance, price, etc.; in addition to some photos of the space and the entrees available. It's a great tool for discovering new places based on your location and preferences rather than just going to your favorites all the time. I haven't had a bad dining experience or a crappy reward yet and don't plan to! I already recommended my friends who appreciated the code and are as happy using the app as I am. Seated is Definitely a must have for busy students/professionals seeking quality cuisine and rewards that are actually useful!
New Orleans gone 2/5
I used this app in the past a few times and it worked great. Now my city seems to have been removed though... :(
Don’t love the changes 3/5
I really loved this app and recommended it to everyone, then I did the update which now has a minimum spending requirement to get the reward and they are fairly unreasonable. $40 for a hole
In the wall sushi place or $60 for a burger place, it makes it pointless to have a party of 2 bc you have to spend a ton of money at some of these places to get the reward, disappointing. I also wish they would do more reasonably priced places and not just super high end, there are only a handful currently. Also they should expand into Queens, Astoria and Sunnyside have a ton of really great diverse restaurants. Overall, I’m not nearly as excited about this app as I used to be and will likely use it much less with the new high spending requirement.
Cancelled Reservation 1/5
Just went to use the app for the first time. Made a reservation and was required to log in to my credit card carrier through their app to get the reward. Along with other reviews stating that Seated attempted to charge them for missing a reservation that was enough for me. Really wasn’t a fan of that at all so I cancelled and went back to OpenTable.
Superb Selection 5/5
By Sophie Crandall
This app is absolutely unreal. Everyone should download it, especially if you're in New York City. I discovered the app a few months ago and since then the options for dining out have exponentially grown. If one thing is certain, I can count that Seated only displays exceptional restaurants. I love that you can search for restaurants depending on not only the type of food, but even the setting. I've never had a bad experience. They recently expanded to a bunch of other cities, and as I travel often for work, I've been able to use the app there as well (LA, Chicago, Miami, Boston etc). Can't wait for them to be in all of the cities I go to frequently. Download it people, you're practically getting paid to eat delicious food!!!
Must have app 5/5
I’ve been a huge fan of Seated for a while now, and each update gets better and better. Its super easy to use, and their rewards are unparalleled. The restaurant options are great and I love trying new places all the time. The concept overall is super cool, and theres no other app that does it quite like Seated. I’m a huge fan and absolutely recommend using this if you love to dine out and try new places all while receiving a great reward!
I️ Really Like Amazon Gift Cards 5/5
Seated is pretty cool - it’s a good app to find new restaurants and there’s a really good selection in Boston. Very straight forward too, you just book a reservation through the app - go to your reservation - and 24-48 hours later they send you a gift card of your choice to places like Starbucks/Uber/Amazon. $20+ in gift cards each time you dine at one of the restaurants in the app has for sure made me a fan. Not familiar with any other apps that offer these types of rewards - but if you’re not using Seated to find places to eat then you’re honestly missing out.
What’s Not to Love? 5/5
Seated is a ground-breaking platform definitely worth the download. Not only does it expose you to restaurants in your area, it also rewards you for eating there! I booked a table at a restaurant I already know and love and they gave me an Amazon gift card the very next day. I’ve already made all my friends download it too! If you’re in one of its cities, give it a try! You won’t regret it. :)
An app for foodies 5/5
As someone who wants to explore new places and try new types of food, i love this app because im able to A. Get uber credit for dining out a lot (which gets expensive...) and B. Discover nearby restaurants that have been well-received by other foodies
The best 5/5
This is one of the best apps i have ever used! Not joking!!! I go out to eat once a week minimum and I use uber to get there. With this app, i can reserve and get uber rewards that I can use for many rides. They have the best restaurants in my city so I am always trying new ones that I have always wanted to go to. Life changing app!!! For all the foodies, this is a must have.
Noah Smith 5/5
I have found that the Seated app is an impressive and easy way to get rewards to some of my favorite places. I normally redeem my rewards to Amazon but you can get Uber and Starbucks as well! The app itself is super user friendly and very clear on how you qualify for the rewards. I use Seated multiple times a week, if I’m going to eat out anyway, I might as well get rewards to do it. I love Seated, would absolutely recommend!
Works great! 5/5
Just received a 15$ Amazon gift card in the mail.
What happened to New Orleans??
design update 5/5
By John bustard
Love this app!!
Easy reservations 5/5
When I have a large group or in a new neighborhood and don’t know where to go, this app is very helpful. I love how easy it is to browse my options. Use code SOEUN0 to get $5 reward on your reservations!
Minimum spend requirement makes it useless 1/5
It was useful when the reward was lower but there was no minimum spend. Now that there is a minimum spend requirement, the app is useless.
Too frustrating and time consuming 2/5
The app concept is great, however you need to make it easier and more accessible to just simply search the restaurant name.
Could be improved 3/5
Cool idea - doesn’t work if the restaurant doesn’t mark you as present on the seated app. Have had to manually send receipts to be credited. Limited selection of restaurants for Denver right now too.
Excellent rewards! 5/5
Great app! Would love it if it had more restaurants with 6+ party reservations.
It’s confusing to use and you can’t delete the account information.
Way better than Open Table 5/5
Use my referral code for an extra bonus on your first rezy: susanne3
I love getting $15 from Starbucks!!
Got $15 Uber and $30 Amazon 5/5
First review I write, I no longer pay for my Uber! Love this
Somewhat confusing 2/5
By Reg user 212
Just had an experience where I was able to select an “available” reservation time, received a message from the app that the restaurant is confirming availability, then a text stating the restaurant doesn’t have availability after all. If it’s not available, don’t make the time selections available. Thanks
Too good to be true - but it is! 5/5
I saw Seated on a Facebook ad, and decided to try it. After all, I wasn’t losing anything if it was a lie and I didn’t get a gift card. The first time I tried to use it, the reservations didn’t go through because the restaurant wasn’t open for lunch. Seated promptly texted me and told me that. I tried again, still thinking there was no way I was going to get a $15 gift card. I made a reservation 10 minutes before my dinner, a Seated concierge text came through to confirm, and within 24 hours I had an amazon gift card waiting for me. I just plugged it into my amazon account and it credited me $15. I can’t believe it! This app is amazing and I will be using it to make reservations from now on.
Had such high hopes... 2/5
Restaurant options for the Boston area were limited anyways but now you can't even search for a specific restaurant or in a specific map area. Ended up deleting the app will stick with Open Table.
Space waster 1/5
Not too happy with Seated. It’s never worked for me. Usually the times I want to make a reservation aren’t available, and all that’s available on the app are 3-5pm time slots. I don’t eat lunch or dinner during those hours. The one time I did get a table, I showed up for my reservation and ate, but the restaurant didn’t record my visit. Unfortunately, we paid in cash and didn’t grab the receipt, so there’s no proof that I was there other than a time-stamped photo of my meal. Seated wouldn’t give me the credit even though I sent them the photo. This app is nothing but a space-waster on my phone.
Rip off 1/5
The uber credits disappear from your uber account before you can use them.
more filter options are needed
Only login through Facebook 1/5
Only option is to login through Facebook; had to delete it
I don’t have Facebook 1/5
Only way to get started is with a Facebook account. Useless to me since I’m not an 11 year old girl.
This App Actually Works! 5/5
When I first got referred to Seated by my friend a few months ago, it seemed too good to be true. Now, a couple months and 10+ successful meals later, I am happy to say that it has surpassed my original expectations. Not only are the rewards great, but I have been pleasantly surprised by the restaurants themselves and how many awesome places I have discovered.
I usually only go to only a few restaurants regularly, but Seated has given me the push that I needed to go out and explore new places. There's a ton of restaurants on Seated, and some great places all around me that I never knew about! I use the Filters to find them (Great new update, by the way!) and have also used the Explore tab a couple times. And I can be confident that everywhere I go is going to be good because I know that Seated boots any restaurant with fewer than 4 stars off of the app. So I'm careful to review places to make sure they stay on for next time or other people!
Of course, the other big draw from Seated is the Rewards, which is what attracted me in the first place. I'm a big coffee drinker, so I got a Starbucks reward the first time I went out. 24 hours later, there was the Starbucks reward right in the app. I would be going out to eat once a week anyway, and getting coffee anyway, so using Seated to dine out and also pay for my coffee is just a no brainer. After a couple Starbucks rewards, I decided to switch to Amazon, and have since piled up over $100 in Amazon credit! How awesome is that?? That's a ton of money.
I am not one to normally review apps, but Seated is just perfect for me. It gives me rewards on things that I spend money on anyway to go out to great restaurants, which I would want to do anyway. It would be great if that was all it did, but it also helps me find more delicious restaurants that I didn't even know about! I've been boosting my rewards more by referring my friends, and letting them in on my secret. This review is so long now haha but I guess it's just my way of saying thank you to Seated. Keep up the great work, guys!
Blue Chip App 5/5
By Caspian Rutherford
When I was unanimously voted captain of my lacrosse team this past fall, I vowed that I would courageously lead my team into the trenches of battle as we attempt to defend our Maryland Division II State Championship. Carrying the burden of the “C” on my right shoulder extends beyond the field, as I am responsible for my teammates around the clock. As a result, I looked for a dining app that could keep my brothers in arms connected at all times. Seated has been the perfect fit for our lacrosse team. This past fall, I was able to book a team bonding event at the local TGI Friday’s after our 15-3 thrashing of Virginia Episcopal. After a few natty lights, three of my boys made out with the same girl at the same time. Great times! Integrating this app into my daily life has been as easy as fielding ground balls in practice. As I begin my college recruiting campaign, I hope to continue booking restaurants and building credits to buy more lax string and better gear so I can continue to hitting creases, back-dooring defenses, and laying out laxheads. As coach always says, “Make each day your masterpiece” and I feel like I can do that more effectively by using Seated.
Have to sign in with Facebook 1/5
Not gonna happen! Deleted...I'd give 0 stars if I could. I hate all this data grab business:(
Love it. No reason to not use 5/5
Getting paid to eat out, easy interface. No brainer
The app opening page is telling me I need to update however I have the latest version so I'm just confused
Unreal App 5/5
By Larry platt<3
Seated has completely changed the way I go about eating. Before discovering this app I was constantly eating meals at home or in my school's dining hall. I can now eat out at my favorite restaurants without having to worry about money, because my Uber is free or I'm getting Amazon or Starbucks credit. Would recommend this to anyone that loves eating out and getting rewarded.
Actually works - discovery tool 5/5
I was skeptical of $15 every time but I've gone out 3 times and the reward has been delivered 24hr after my meal every single time. Plus I've been finding cool restaurants through it that I otherwise would not have known about
My favorite 5/5
Just take a look at Seated to help narrow down the options of where to eat!!! They've got some awesome places which I will def be returning to
Strongly recommend 5/5
Whenever I'm going out to dinner with friends, The first thing I do is check seated! Don't really use the Starbucks option, but between Uber and Amazon, the rewards feel the same as giving me straight up cash! I noticed they expanded this to the west coast too which is cool
Like everyone, I was skeptical. But then 15$ credit to my Amazon account after we ate they're. (I didn't even pay the bill). Imagine the possibilities if you book restaurants for others. Muh ha ha ha.
Total scam 1/5
By High Frequency Diner
My first attempt to use it I found a restaurant and a time that it showed as available and then booked.
Boom. I'm told I have to pick a different, less desirable time.
Of course it wasn't the restaurant -- I got the reservation at the initial time directly from the restaurant.
This is clearly a scam to sell off even worse reservations only. Don't use it!
And their concierge certainly wasn't offered or tried. So please ignore their "feedback" -- it too is a scam.
By Jimmy Turner limbo
Why would you not put a search bar in the menu? You should be able to find what you want specifically. Not just by locations or preference. Very UX/UI unfriendly.
