Feeling the heat? Cool off with our 2000 Point Summer Giveaway! CLICK HERE for details

Most seasoned diners know that a refined restaurant experience is much more than just the act of serving you good food on a plate. It’s a hospitality business in every sense. The passionate restaurateur yearns for their customers to have a wonderful experience — not just so you’ll come back and tell your friends about it — but because, quite frankly, it’s part of their DNA. Chefs, in particular, crave approval and desperately want to make you happy. It’s a big part of why they went into this trying business. (It certainly wasn’t for the money.) Running a restaurant is about as hard a job as it gets.

Unfortunately we can’t… but here at OpenTable we’re always working daily with you in mind, and to best serve you I’m very excited to welcome you to our revamped online Community!


My name is Colby, and I'm the Community Manager here at OpenTable. Having held nearly every role in the restaurant world I’m excited to share and learn from you. Our Community is a chance for you to:

  •         Get help with OpenTable products
  •         Get to know other diners like yourself
  •         Share your best dining experiences
  •         Offer constructive feedback
  •         And learn more about the restaurant industry

We want you to be able to find the answers to your questions, and share your ideas and experiences and share anything with us and the Community. My role is to make sure you find whatever you may need and hopefully have some fun too!  

In the Community you have access to:

  •         Detailed articles on OpenTable products
  •         Direct responses from OpenTable team members
  •         Your peers! There’s great people in this community and we want you to get to know one another

‘The Scoop’ is our Community blog, and my mission is to highlight fun and exciting areas of the restaurant world regularly. From restaurant trends, because gluten free was so last month, to featured chefs, and even an “ask an OpenTable employee” column.  I’ll make sure to keep you updated with what’s going on in our world. I want you to help shape the Community as well. Please feel free to send me a message with your ideas for what you want to see.

Once again, welcome to our revamped Community. We’ve redesigned it with your needs in mind, so I really hope you enjoy all that it has to offer.
