Testing, Testing: Online Ordering Arrives in Select Cities

At OpenTable, we’re always searching for ways to connect you with great dining experiences. We recognize, however, that there are times when that great dining experience must come to you. Perhaps you can’t find a babysitter. Maybe sweat pants are the only item of clean clothing in your apartment. Or, more likely, Sharknado 3 is on and you just can’t pull yourself away. We get it.

For those times when you just can’t make it to a restaurant, OpenTable is here to help. In keeping with our tradition of investigating different ways to make your life delicious, online ordering is now being tested in select cities to save you from totally lame takeout or, even worse, frozen pizza. During this test period, diners in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, and San Francisco can get connected to order delicious delivery or takeout from a restaurant’s profile page when you’re on OpenTable.com. There are more than 2,000 restaurants from which to choose.
