If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.

App Reviews

  • Useful but a big downgrade vs the previous version

    Open Table is without doubt a very useful concept and in terms of the actual booking and confirmation process once you’ve selected restaurant/day/time/etc it generally works fine. HOWEVER, and this is a big “but” that really makes OT less useful, the search function is much less intuitive and much less helpful than on previous versions of the app. Getting the app to search effectively for a specific type of cuisine or location is just not as easy or as good as it used to be. (For example, I live in central London, which the app “knows”. My mother lives in Sussex. When I searched specifying her town, OT returned a few options there but a whole bunch in central London, useless for my needs and irrelevant to my search request. It also seems there are fewer restaurants connected to OT these days, probably due to competition from other new apps but also maybe related to the reduced usefulness of the OT app these days. The old app was really a 4-5 star app. The current one is worth just 2-3 stars. With so many options around you’d have thought OT should focus on improving the app, not on changing the look at the expense of much worse functionality. Sadly a tale of “style over substance” and only likely to lead to OT losing more users, more restaurants and more ground to competition. Sad!

    It's a useful service that I've used for years but there are a couple of annoying things about the app: 1) first of all, because you're on mobile, the app defaults you to "book a table near me now" mode and it's a little hard to navigate out of that. Most of the time I'm using the app, it's because I'm on the go or in a meeting - not because I need a table right then. It's annoying to constantly figure out how to book a table for a future date, in a distant neighborhood. It takes way too many clicks to do this. App designers: there's more than one mobile use case; more than one user journey. 2) rebooking a table doesn't seem to work. I tried at various times of the day and kept getting error messages, or no error just no success. I ended up having to call the restaurant directly which to me, defeats a lot of the purpose of OpenTable. Also, as others have noted, using rewards is a pain. This is the fault of the company, not the app, so it doesn't figure into my app rating, but I would advise against giving an Open Table gift certificate as a gift to anyone. There are way too many limitations, rules, and annoying steps to redeem.

    I find it pretty shocking/unfortunate that you have a on/off button for points now. I’ve been using your application for years and years. I use your application 12 months out of the year. Almost 5-10 times a month and you added this button that seems like a huge SCAM to me. Why would I ever want to use your application and not receive points? Out of convenience? I have redeemed hundreds of dollars in OpenTable points in the past years and now you’re saying if I forget to tap receive points I will not get them? This is a scam. It’s foolish and you’re tricking people into not receiving points if they don’t pay attention or read carefully. Just ridiculous. You should really think about removing that feature (or at least disable it) before it starts to really aggravate your best customers. I am not happy with this change and I think it’s going to really ruin the future and how others use OpenTable. I am NOT a pleased fan or customer. I will be letting my family and friends know about this drastic change and hoping they do not get tricked into not gaining points out of some foolish update. Don’t fix things that were not broken, don’t add features that are not necessary. We all know countless of apps that do things that do not satisfy or help the users and plummet right away.

    Been using OpenTable for years, spent literally thousands of dollars at affiliated restaurants, finally got around to claiming the rewards I've earned, and it's a pittance! Do the math: a typical meal's 100-point reward = 50 cents! Ah, but they're sneaky: they don't tell you what the conversion factor is until AFTER you make a reservation where you want to redeem. Worse, they're dishonest: redeeming 5,000 points worth "up to $50" was actually converted to just $25. That means my entire 20,000-point reward allotment for all those years is worth just $100. Pffftt!! They make it extraordinarily difficult to redeem, and instructions are confusing and contradictory. You can book on mobile, but you can't redeem. The mobile app directs you to the website -- which inaccurately says you can do everything on your phone! NOT. When you do figure it out, you get an email with a link BACK to the website, which generates an image that you must print and bring to the restaurant, where it's processed like a debit/reward card. Complete hassle; not worth the time and effort. I'm DONE. I'll search on Google -- which finds ALL cuisine, not just participating restaurants -- and click "call" to make my reservations the old-fashioned way: by speaking to a real, live, in-the-flesh human being.
  • If you use it, be sure to call the restaurant and get the details too

    I’ve been burned too many times by this app. Going to a restaurant for a special event and only relying on Open Table reservations is not a good idea. For Mother’s Day one year, they advertised a pre-fixe menu at a specific price range. I get there and everything is double price. Why? Because it’s Mother’s Day. For Father’s Day I make reservations for a nice restaurant advertising a certain price for their Father’s Day buffet. We get there and the buffet - which is the only thing they’re serving - is double the price advertised. Turns out the price listed on Open Table was the children’s price. Not only that, but when we get there, we’re told that a reservation doesn’t guarantee us a seat inside. Nobody in their right mind wants to sit in sweltering 90 degree humidity in the Ohio River Valley. This is exactly why people make reservations. I should’ve known better at this point but if you’re someone on a fixed income who’s just trying to plan something nice for a loved one, don’t rely on Open Table to list the whole truth. Don’t use it for planning. Call ahead. It’s a nice concept but if you can’t be sure what you’re walking into, I’m sure it’s not serving 100% of its purpose.
  • They want receipt copies!!

    By Sam Ovila
    We are regulars at a local restaurant (1-2 times a week) and we always made reservations through the OpenTable app to avoid waiting in line. Sometimes they get too busy or have new host staff and apparently forget to check us in, so OT sends an email a few days later to ask if you attended your reservation. In the past, they’d check with the restaurant but when this recently happened to us, Khadejah asked for a scanned copy of our receipt. I explained that, for security reasons, I don’t feel comfortable sending copies of my credit card receipts (not to mention we shred anything with CC info) but I offered the names of staff we spoke to that evening with whom she could verify, and that we ALWAYS sit at table 10. Nope, she insisted on a receipt to give us credit for the visit. Why the change? Why demand personal financial information in a time when ID theft and credit card theft are rampant? I can tell you who saw me, who spoke to me, where I sat, heck- even what I wore, but that’s not sufficient? Unless there’s a change in this policy, we will likely begin using one of the many other reservation services available.
  • Easy breezy to use with one big flaw

    Great app, use it all the time. But, one thing that has to be fixed is the restaurant search feature, which doesn't seem to care how far a restaurant is from your location if there is no restaurant with that name locally. Example: Searched for a restaurant and selected my city. The results give me first a restaurant that’s 400 miles away in another country followed by restaurants in my country that I guess were more farther away by distance. Okay, so no restaurant with that name locally, so just tell me! How about saying there are no restaurants with that name locally, followed by similar cuisine restaurant suggestions? Or even better, be able to select criteria that most closely fit that restaurant profile? That would be a lot more useful than accidentally reserving a restaurant 400 miles away in another country!
  • Removed the “add to calendar” option

    By Slithy Toves
    This baffles me. Going out to a restaurant, there are a few things that are important - which restaurant, the address, the day, and the time. In the past, there was a button to hit that would put all of this information in my calendar. I wouldn’t even call it a feature, as it’s the most obvious thing in the world. Think of it like assuming that a calculator app has a plus sign button. If it lacks that plus sign button, you know the developer made a serious error. Guess what, the OpenTable people have decided that everyone can copy all that data in by hand. All the people complaining here and on Twitter are just ignored. Nice improvement there, guys.
  • Harder to use than desktop

    By fashiondisaster
    I’ve been using Open Table on my laptop since the early 00’s and switched to the app about two years ago. They have a pretty big base of restaurants to choose from and I’ve discovered a lot of long-standing favorites as a result of exploring. My biggest complaint about the app is that the map search feature regularly resets itself when you try to zoom in too closely on a neighborhood. The overall navigation is a little difficult, compared to the desktop version, (which I sometimes pull up on my phone if I need to find something fast). It’s also not possible to redeem rewards on the app, which is frustrating. Their rewards system has changed to a less desirable redemption process as well, but I guess that is unrelated to the app itself.
  • Great way to make and track dinner plans

    The new interface took a little getting used to but the app still works great. It is easy to search restaurants and times. One feature I would like to see added: search the next availability for a specific time. This would help with really popular places that always seem to be booked. ---- Update: this is still my go-to when I want to make a res. It used to be easier to send a notice of the reservation to others from within the app, but now they want you to link other party members which presumes they have the app themselves. Now I just wait until I get the confirmation email and forward that. I used a $100 reward a couple years ago and need to claim another.
