Reduce Your Open Table Reservation Fees by up To 75%
get more reservations and save thousands in fees every year.
If you’ve invested in using Open Table to fill your restaurants tables efficiently that was probably a good decision but how about making a smart decision even smarter by saving thousands in fees every year and getting better results using the same Open Table system?
Our research has shown that it can be done very easily by making one small adjustment to your efforts.
Here’s how it normally works
(actual numbers will vary)
Our research tells us that for reservations that come straight from OpenTable.com or its affiliates, you’ll pay $1.00 per cover, or per person in your party. Ex: a seated party of 2 will cost you $2.00
For reservations you generate yourself through your website, the cover fee is only $0.25 each, and that covers the cost of administering the reservation, providing customer phone support, etc. Ex: a party of 2 will cost you $0.50.
Using these numbers, if you book 20 total people through OpenTable.com your costs are as follows
$20 a day
$600 a month
$7,200 a year
The same number booked through your website
$5 a day
$150 a month
$1,800 a year
You save $5,400 a year
So the obvious question is
“How can I get more people to book reservations using my website instead of Open Tables?”
Research shows that 30% of all searches for restaurants are from a mobile device and websites like yours designed for desktop viewing are hard to read and navigate on smartphones. This un-friendly user experience causes people to abandon your website and book elsewhere. Sometimes this means booking reservations using Open Table’s website or worse, making reservations with your competitor.
Either way you are losing
The Solution is Simple
Make a mobile friendly version of your website and embed the code Open Table gives you into it

The argument is that diners who find and book via Open Table are much more likely to be incremental guests than people who are already on your website and who choose to book from there.
