OpenTable.com Offers Online Reservations 24/7

Launched in 1999, OpenTable.com is the leading purveyor of free, real-time, restaurant reservations to individual diners 24/7. The online provider seats more than 1 million diners a month.

About 4,500 restaurants across the country have paid $1,200 to install the software. Plus they pay $1 for each reservation booked on the site.

The service allows restaurants to make electronic profiles of customers, noting preferred tables as well as favorite dishes and cocktails. It�s a real bonus for the owner, not having to compile and track those details on their own.
