Great app thus far, but would like to see an incorporated reservations system to go along with the wait list. We take a small amount of reservations per night, usually 3-12 and only for large parties. So it would help to have integrated reservation and table management so that the reservations block off their assigned tables at a certain time

No Wait is a tremendous asset to our business. Can't imagine going back to the old days of pencil and paper. Has allowed us to offer reservations, which has been a big hit with customers.


Total Bait and Switch

Don’t bother downloading this app unless you plan to dish out $250/month (Yes, PER MONTH) to use it. It’s a nice product, but as soon as the sales people realized you’re not going to pay their monthly fee, they cut off access to the APP and Account. No trial, no limited use FREE versions ... Pay or get booted. They should disclose that this is only usable IF you set up a commercial account with them and if you can afford it.
