OpenTable and Capital One Financial Corporation have partnered to offer Capital One credit cardholders access to hard-to-get reservations at prime dining times in more than 15 different U.S. cities. Select sought-after restaurants on OpenTable will now allocate tables during their busiest shifts, which can be booked exclusively by Capital One credit cardholders via the OpenTable app.
“We know that coming across a 7 p.m. Saturday night reservation at the hotspot can sometimes feel impossible. Now, there’s a way to get those reservations without scouring our site or planning months in advance,” says Debby Soo, Chief Commercial Officer, OpenTable. “By partnering with Capital One, we’re able to offer their credit cardholders Premium Access to coveted reservations all while introducing our restaurant partners to new diners.”
To book a Premium Access reservation, Capital One cardholders can take the following steps:
- Download the OpenTable App or update to the latest version.
- Find the “Premium Access” carousel on the home screen or visit http://www.opentable.com/capitaloneto browse participating restaurants.
- Click verify to unlock the table.
- Book a table for two or four at prime dining times.
“We know our customers are passionate about memorable dining experiences, which is why we’re excited to partner with the leader in online and mobile dining reservations, OpenTable, to bring them access to exclusive reservations on a national scale,” says Lauren Liss, Vice President of U.S. Card at Capital One. “Through this partnership, we’re able to bring our credit cardholders hard-to-get reservations at nearly 300 restaurants in 15+ different US cities.”
With access to these exclusive reservations, Capital One cardholders can enjoy top dining destinations across the country. Examples of participating restaurants include: Boka and Girl & the Goat in Chicago, Republique, Here’s Looking At You and the NoMad Restaurant in Los Angeles, Brennan’s and Shaya in New Orleans, The Loyal, Daniel and La Esquina in New York City, Delfina Restaurant, International Smoke and the Slanted Door in San Francisco, Bresca and Kith/Kin in Washington D.C. and many more.
“At Kith/Kin we foster an environment for friends and family to celebrate and make memories around the table,” says Kwame Onwuachi of Kith/Kin. “Through this new partnership between OpenTable and Capital One, we will be able to welcome so many new people into our home.”
In January, OpenTable plans to expand Premium Access reservations to its VIP diners. Qualifying diners will be able to redeem their OpenTable Dining Points to book prime time reservations at participating restaurants. Capital One credit cardholders will continue to enjoy access to Premium Access reservations without needing to redeem any OpenTable Dining Points to book.
“We are excited to participate in this program and introduce our restaurant to new diners through Capital One,” adds Jason Berry of Succotash and Mi Vida restaurants. “We love opening our doors to new diners who experience our restaurants for the first time – and who will hopefully visit again soon.”
