I don't think the number of employees put in charge of this matters when restaurants sue for damages.

I was looking at four restaurants today, and three of the four were on Resy, one on Open Table.

Has anyone seen this thing where, even though you booked the reservation on OpenTable, you end up getting a confirmation email from Resy at some point?


I didn't tip at Per Se either.

Part advertorial, part interesting but a piece by Kokonas on OT, Resy/Reserve M&A, and why Tock is the greatest super-duperist thing evar.  (its actually pretty good)

When someone cites "cloud" and "machine learning" and "infinitely scalable" in the contest of the task of taking reservations I have to think he's full of it. The entire task for all restaurants in the US can be easily handled by a single server.  

 

Also I think there are now 25 restaurant reservation systems with significant footprint in Japan alone (and more over east asia, urp, etc.). Instead of trying to cover every need and suggesting assholistic concepts like demand based pricing, many cater to very specific needs, and have started convincing even traditional restaurants to come on board as they offer them the ability to manage availability on an individual basis and replace their well guarded paper books, offering assurances the data won't leak.

That’s hilarious. Does anyone say “”SaaS” any more?

But seriously, is Open Table on prem? I assumed if it ever was, it had moved to the cloud (as we call it).

And yes, machine learning applied to the pool of data in question, nice ornamentation.

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”
