    I just experienced Savored for the first time in New York through Open Table. My reaction is total shock and disappointment. I made a reservation at Almond at E. 22nd Street in Manhattan and on Open Table it showed that there would be a 30% discount at 6:30. Only in the process of making the reservation did the name “Savored” enter the process. I was asked to pay $10 for the reservation and charged it to my American Express card. I was totally unfamiliar with Savored and quite naturally assumed that the $10 was to guarantee that I would show up and that the $10 would be credited to my bill. When I got the bill, I was quite surprised that not only was the $10 not credited, that it was a separate fee to Savored for making the reservation and getting me a 30% discount (which now was not 30% anymore), but an 18% gratuity was added to the bill. When I spoke to the manager, Antonio Rappazzo, he told me that he had no idea how Savored operated or how they made their money or about the $10 reservation fee. He also said that his staff had been upset that people had tipped based on the bill after the 30% discount and he had arranged with Savored to add th 18% gratuity, but that anyone who made a reservation would be advised of this fact at the time of reservation. I made a copy of my reservation but, at no time, was there an indication of the gratuity charge. In fact, I generally tip 20% and added to the 18% gratuity, but I find this whole process unconscionable and will never make a reservation through Savored again.
