Currently only in beta in New York City, Los Angeles, and Boston, Reserve allows you to pick a restaurant. Once you've selected the time and the number of people, the app makes the reservations for you and even goes as far as handling payment of the meal. A copy of the bill debited to your credit card is then e-mailed to you. And if you're worried they're going to become the Uber of restaurants, they have this to say:
Reserve is different from other services.
Restaurants don't pay a cent — Reserve helps chefs and restaurateurs by bringing in diners for free, and there is no cost to restaurants for using our technology.
You're in control of the dining room — our partner restaurants are not required to hold tables and have more flexibility in how they run their businesses.
We are a strong partner for restaurants — making the dining experience better for you and your guests.
