Imagine this: you’re walking down the street in Chi-town with a pretty lady in tow. She hints that she’s been dying to try one of the restaurants from Yelp’s 2010 Best of List and she’s hungry. Like, now. It’s 7:30pm; there’s no way you’ll get a table without a long wait. So, what are you going to do?
Easy. Pull out the Yelp app on your iPhone, iPad or Android, search for “Girl and the Goat” and wham, bam, thank you ma’am! You have 8:00pm reservations for two (not to mention the address, directions and top meal picks to boot) without even having to make a call.
You may remember that in June of last year, Yelp and OpenTable joined forces to bring users the ability to easily book reservations at their favorite restaurants in one easy step without ever having to leave Yelp.com.
Based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback of our OpenTable relationship, as well as growth and engagement via Yelp Mobile, we’ve decided to take it one step farther. Enter: Yelp and OpenTable on your Yelp iPhone, iPad and Android apps.
Never wait in line again!
Starting today, yelpers in the US can now not only search for and find their favorite joints, but also book reservations via OpenTable in their Yelp apps for iPhone, iPad and Android without ever leaving the app. No muss, no fuss — and best of all, no waiting in line!
