I love the new version of the app, now you don’t have to link your bank account so you can simply upload a picture of the receipt, which I love because it made me feel unsafe putting out there my bank information! In my city it’s pretty hard to discover new restaurants. I was used to going to the "same old" and it got very monotonous going out for dinner/lunch with friends. Thanks to Seated, I've been able to discover SO many restaurants that I was not even aware of before. I’ve discovered many places that I’ve had to go back multiple times because they were that good. As they've increased the party sizes now I can book for larger parties and try out new places with more than 3 friends. The rewards have also gotten even bigger and better, I cant even begin to describe the amount of rewards I’ve accumulated that have come in SO handy. The app also works great for my Diner’s Club, we simply go to the app platform and look at restaurants that are willing to take reservations for large parties and it makes the entire process much simpler because Seated takes care of getting us our reservation. Whenever I’ve had any issues with the app I reach out to the support team and they are pretty quick at getting back to me and also help me with any issue I had. I love that Seated is much more than an app, its an experience that I don’t get tired of repeating over and over again!
Blue Chip App
When I was unanimously voted captain of my lacrosse team this past fall, I vowed that I would courageously lead my team into the trenches of battle as we attempt to defend our Maryland Division II State Championship. Carrying the burden of the “C” on my right shoulder extends beyond the field, as I am responsible for my teammates around the clock. As a result, I looked for a dining app that could keep my brothers in arms connected at all times. Seated has been the perfect fit for our lacrosse team. This past fall, I was able to book a team bonding event at the local TGI Friday’s after our 15-3 thrashing of Virginia Episcopal. After a few natty lights, three of my boys made out with the same girl at the same time. Great times! Integrating this app into my daily life has been as easy as fielding ground balls in practice. As I begin my college recruiting campaign, I hope to continue booking restaurants and building credits to buy more lax string and better gear so I can continue to hitting creases, back-dooring defenses, and laying out laxheads. As coach always says, “Make each day your masterpiece” and I feel like I can do that more effectively by using Seated.
Purchase minimums + fake reservation times
This app used to be better until it implemented the "minimum purchase" rules for each restaurant. I'm one person, and even with an app, entree and drink I sometimes don't reach $75 at a restaurant. The purchase minimums defeat the purpose of the app. Also the reservation times are never accurate. If you book a time, there's a 50% chance you'll get a text from the app like 10 minutes before reservation time saying "we're sorry, there are no reservations available at the time you selected" even though the app (a) listed the time available, and (b) approved the reservation booking. I'd give the app 1 star but the gift card reward did work once (but that was before the purchase minimums were implemented). There is also some serious false advertising after the update:
The rewards on the app say ~$20 reward except not a single restaurant provides a $20 reward, or $19, $18, $17....you get the idea. The highest reward is $15. No restaurant yields $20 and certainly nothing over $20 (hence the false advertising of the ~$X). So go in knowing you will need to spend $60-80 bucks in restaurants (not nice restaurants either) in order to get a $5-$15 reward. App legal team needs to review the false advertising issue.
Developer Response ,
Hi! Thanks for reaching out. We work hard to ensure the minimum spend for a party of two is around the same price as two entrees. We believe this is a fair price given the increased reward. Hope this clarifies things :)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
