Ratings and Reviews
Does not work
I downloaded the app but never got the confirmation SMS, I see now that many people complain about this here.
I tried creating a new account but the app says my email already has an account and that I should sign in. The only way for me to sign in is using a password that I never created. When I asked to reset said password the email they send me redirects me to the sign in page on their website and therefore I cannot sign in at all.
This is absolutely frustrating especially because I have two reservations that I never got a confirmation email about and now cannot confirm.
When I try to rebook my dinner reservations the website says I already have something booked for those dates. So, apparently, they have my reservations, they are just not willing to share them with me!
Makes booking restaurants simple!
Well done for making this app. I hate phoning restaurants to check availability and speaking to people that either cannot understand me or I cannot understand them. Now I can check availability; book; and cancel bookings without speaking to anyone! Love it.
Very useful app
This app works well - very convenient to see which restaurants have availability without have to make several calls. Looking forward to more restaurants being added.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
