What's New in Version 2.7
Introducing Tags: See the essence of a restaurant at a glance, whether it’s a “romantic” hideaway that’s “good for a date”, a “divey” spot with “great beers”, or an “authentic” restaurant with “aguas frescas”. You can also search by tags, like “gluten-free”, “vegan”, or “good for kids”, and see what’s nearby. Do you love “hole in the wall” gems? Tell Ness that you’re a fan, and Ness will highlight these places for you in the future.
Quite the inspiring app!
Wanting to eat out but not wanting to go to the same place you always do? This is the app for you! It's great for finding new places or reminding you of ones you haven't been to in a while. And I love having the ability to make lists and save ideas for the future. It even recommends places based on other places that you've rated. Fantastic!
Best rating and browsing interface
Ness makes the rating and exploration process super easy! I still need other apps to review details though (menu, pricing, more reviews). Don't you dare shut the app down after the acquisition!!!!!!!
Once I figured out how to use it... I find it amazing. Hopefully opentable will continue to support this amazing app now that they own it!!!!
