Paying the Bill? There’s an App for That

Besides being a positively delicious experience, dining out is meant to be relaxing and stress-free. From making reservations to finding out previous diners’ favorite dishes, Open Table is always finding a new way to enhance your restaurant experience, and now they’ve taken it to the next level.

The next time you make a reservation using the app, you can expect to pay your bill the same way. There are three simple steps to paying your bill:

 

1. Make a reservation at any participating restaurant on Open Table

2. Click to view your check once you are ready to leave

3. Choose your tip and slide to pay — your receipt will arrive via email

 

Easy as 1, 2, 3! We can’t wait to try this out at some of our favorite restaurants.

 

You tell us: Pay by your phone or waiter/diner interaction: Which do you prefer?
