Reach guests wherever they are with direct messaging

Communicate one-on-one with guests before they step into your restaurant.

Get Started

Stay in touch with guests on-the-go

Build stronger connections that keep guests coming back

  • Initiate or respond to guest messages before and after their reservation—whether it’s confirming menu preferences in advance, preparing for a special occasion, or reaching out to let a guest know they left their sunglasses behind.
  • Reach guests right in OpenTable, with reminder notifications also sent to guests via email and/or app push notifications.

One easy place for all of your messages

Prepare for shifts, track cancellations, and prevent no-shows

  • Centrally manage all messages with a dedicated inbox and clear notifications so you can always connect directly with guests, even during times when a phone call isn’t possible
  • Manage from anywhere, with access to Direct Messaging on Web and iPad, so your front and back of house teams can stay connected with guests.
  • Keep your team organized with message statuses to differentiate between new, in progress, or complete conversations. /li>
