Diners seeking to enjoy a more leisurely dining experience should consider dining at a time other than noon, according to the results of  a recent survey of OpenTable diners.

The size of most dining parties is small, with most people spending Mother’s Day at a table for two to four people. However, nearly 44% will dine in a larger group of more than six.
