Ratings and Reviews


La Duni

Now days there many wait list management apps., but only Buzztable works in real life environments. It is effective and delivers results immediately upon implementation. It takes minutes to master and train. It has great features but none superfluous. It's design is intuitive but powerful. Buzztable thinks like restaurant operators not just software designers.
Try and compare with as many apps as you can, the more you try the more you will love Buzztable.
Guests also love the portal functions. For La DUNI restaurants, there is no other option.
I just hope the call ahead and table managements functions are ready before the end of 2013.



Just started using this app for a small chain of restaurants that I own. It's absolutely amazing! It was super easy to set up and its really easy to use. Helps me to manage my guests during the busiest hours, allows me to collect more guest info that anything else I've tried...at the rate we are going we will double our email list in under a year!! Customers seem to love it as well. We are seeing less complaints about waiting times and everyone is always pleasantly surprised by the free side dish we offer...def a no brainier!! Thanks buzztable!

Just what we needed


This app was just was just what we needed. It works much better than our old method with a clipboard and pen. Best of all it is reliable and easy to use.
