OpenTable is an public company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Priceline.com, that offers online real-time restaurant-reservations. The company provides online reservations at about 31,000 upscale restaurants around the world seating some 15 million diners a month.
The company was founded in San Francisco, California, in 1998. Reservations are free to end users; but the company charges restaurants a monthly fee and per-reservation fees for their use of the system.
In 1999, the website began operations serving a limited number of restaurants in San Francisco, California. It has since expanded to cover more than 30,000 restaurants in most U.S. states as well as in several major international cities. Reservations can be made online through NJ Business Directory.
