Customize your availability

Bring order to chaos

GuestCenter gives you full control over your availability, so you can maximize each shift.

Meet your full potential

New table categories allow you to offer more of your seats online, while setting the right expectations with guests.

  • Increase covers and delight guests. Make your bar, counter, high-tops, and patio seats reservable online.
  • Bigger tips. Increase check averages (and tips) by serving more full meals at the bar.
  • Fewer empty seats. Avoid having an empty bar with online bookings.

Control availability with ease

GuestCenter puts you in charge of when and how you show up to diners on OpenTable.

  • Control availability by sub-shift. Set different rules for the beginning, middle, and end of each shift.
  • Control availability by table type. Set different availability for each table type (e.g. block the patio for walk-ins during weekend brunch).
  • Control which seats are reservable. Put as many or as few seats online as you want—the choice is yours.

We’ve really enjoyed the higher level of control, and we’ve definitely seen an increase in reservations from the way that we tweaked our settings.

Crowd control

Set limits and rules for large parties to keep your kitchen and servers from getting slammed.

  • Custom large party definitions. Whether it’s 6 or 16, you can define what a “large party” means for your restaurant.
  • Protect your staff. Decide when to accept large parties and when not to.
