OpenTable diners with an Android can now write restaurant reviews in real time right from their phones.

You no longer have to wait until you get back in front of a computer to share your experiences — you can start writing your review as soon as you’re done dining.

OpenTable’s Website: Re-designed, Re-architected, Re-imagined

In 1998, we introduced diners to a brand new concept – booking restaurant reservations online. A lot has changed since then, though our website design has remained largely the same.

While the site has served us well over the years, it was time for an update. Today, the team at OpenTable is excited to launch a brand new web experience. Over the last several months, our team has been hard at work building new technology and designs that enhance the way diners discover and book restaurants on OpenTable.com.

The new site delivers a cohesive experience for diners who use OpenTable on the web, tablet, and mobile phones. It looks forward, with a scalable and flexible architecture to make it easier to introduce new features to enhance the overall dining experience. Our new search interface supports neighborhood, address, or specific restaurant names all in the same place, which means less clicking around. The design places new focus on the restaurant, bringing forward the content that inspires booking the perfect table. And after you make a reservation, we’ve made it easier to invite others and share.

Redesign

We hope that those who have used OpenTable for years and those who have just discovered us enjoy the new site. We will be hard at work from here on out to continue to make it the best place to visit for that perfect night out.

We are always eager to hear from you, and please let us know how we can make it even better.

 Jocelyn Mangan is Senior Vice President, Consumer Product Management. 

OpenTable’s New Experience

As some of you may have noticed, we’ve been rolling out and testing an updated version of our website. The redesigned site has been completely rebuilt on a nimble platform that is rich with imagery and grounded in simplicity to make OpenTable even better at helping you plan the perfect night out, discover your next favorite spot, or revisit an old favorite.

In the coming weeks, as we continue test and iterate the new site, it will be unveiled to more and more of you. We hope you’ll enjoy the new OpenTable and we welcome your feedback.  You can connect with us at redesignsupport@opentable.com.
