Check it out:
Get more of what you want
We’re all about connecting you with the right restaurants for any occasion, mood, or craving—and the restaurant recommendations carousels are designed to do just that. The carousels serve you a list of tailored recommendations that have similar menus, flavors, or ambiance as places where you’ve previously dined. These recommendations continuously change based on your booking history, favorites, searches, and more—so that you can enjoy more amazing meals and dining experiences.
Thumbs up, thumbs down
You can now give us feedback on the restaurant recommendations the app provides right from the homescreen. Select a restaurant from the carousel, tap in the right-hand corner, and tell us what you think. When you share your feedback, we get to work—learning more about your preferences, sourcing a selection of restaurants tailored to your needs, and building out your taste profile. Give restaurants a thumbs up when you like the recommendation, to see more places that have a similar menu or experience. For restaurants that don’t quite meet your needs, give them a thumbs down and we’ll remove that restaurant from your restaurant “queue”. The more you share your opinions with us, the easier it is to pinpoint your preferred dining tastes and experiences.
Everything you need in one spot
Now, you can access all your diner stats on the go. Check out all of your past reservations, reviews, and photos in one place. Keep track of your dining points—the handy status bar lets you know how many points you have and when you’ll reach your next milestone. You can even manage your dietary preferences to let restaurants know you’ve gone pescatarian or dairy-free. There’s even a place for you to store important dates like your birthday or a special anniversary.
