Don’t be left standing: Reserve a seat at even more local spots through Yelp and SeatMe

Posted by Alex Kvamme

You may recall that SeatMe joined the Yelp family back in July and now we’re excited to introduce the ability to book SeatMe reservations directly from a restaurant or nightlife venue’s Yelp listing! The feature is available online and on iOS and Android.

Over 117 million average monthly unique visitors (as of Q3 2013) are turning to Yelp to help them decide where to go to spend their hard earned dough and the SeatMe reservation feature is yet another way to help consumers seamlessly close that loop between discovering a great local business and experiencing the best that business has to offer.

Since waiting in line isn’t your favorite thing to do (just guessing, but pretty sure I’m right), whip out Yelp and nab a reso before you head out. Now instead of just drooling over the review highlights for Oakland, CA hot spot Hopscotch (duck fat chips and sweet potato gnocchi?!) you can take your fantasizing to the next level and snag a reservation on the spot.

Not in the mood for food? That’s OK - 20% of SeatMe venues are bars and lounges so you can reserve a seat at that quaint little mixology bar down the street, too. For San Franciscans, a craft cocktail at the speakeasy-esque Local Edition is just a couple clicks away.

Restaurants and bars love SeatMe because of their flat fee structure and no “per diner” fees. If you own or manage a restaurant, visit seatme.com/features to learn more.
