Reserve, a concierge-like service for finding you tables at the best restaurants in major cities (currently New York, Boston, Los Angeles, and San Francisco), launched on Android today. The app wants to make the process of finding a spot to eat at a fabulous restaurant to paying at the end of the meal, as seamless as it gets.
With Reserve, you are able to easily book tables by telling the app your needs, including table size and when you want to dine. Once it knows the details of your outing, you can browse through its list of the “best” restaurants in your city that are available or allow it to provide suggestions. After your meal, Reserve is also capable of handling payment, so there isn’t a need to pull out your wallet or credit card. The app knows your tip and card preferences, which gives it the power to handle everything, including tax and the $5 concierge fee.
The service sounds lovely, it’s just that it is in all four US cities. Should it rollout to others, we’ll be sure to let you know.
