Table8, a mobile application and website that provides last-minute restaurant reservations and access to unique culinary experiences, is unveiling updated search, filtering, and sorting by location capabilities today. These new features allow users to more efficiently tap into the quickly growing database of over 1,000 restaurants in 13 cities nationwide by filtering cuisine type, searching by restaurant name, and sorting by place, neighborhood, location, ratings, and more.

“This major product upgrade lets Table8 Dining Club members more easily choose between the best restaurants in each major U.S. city and book coveted, sold-out tables via our restaurants partnerships,” says Pete Goettner, CEO of Table8. “Our Table8 Dining Club members rely on us more and more to help them find and get into the best restaurants in the country. As our list of recommendations and partner restaurants have grown, our members have been asking for expanded search, filtering and content tools.”

Since launching in San Francisco in 2013, Table8 has nimbly evolved in a market thick with competitors by expanding into new regions, creating a yearly subscription based Dining Club with exclusive offerings, and partnering with corporate travel agencies that directly introduce the product to a demographic constantly searching for quality dining recommendations on short notice. The expanded capabilities debuting today build upon Table8’s current structure and further streamlines the process of booking the ideal reservation or culinary experience.

Updates to the Table8 interface include:

New App and Website Features—Searching, Filtering, and Sorting: Table8 diners can now browse our 1,000-plus curated restaurant recommendations using new tools that include filtering by cuisine type, searching by restaurant name, and sorting by place, neighborhood, location, ratings, and more.

More Dining Events and Related Benefits: In addition to restaurant reservations, Dining Club members now have access to a growing selection of special events—from "first look" restaurant previews, to one-of-a-kind chef collaborations, and not-to-be-missed pop-ups. Dining Club members received a number of dining event perks over the past few months, including special access to otherwise completely sold-out events and up to a 20 percent discount on tickets.

Expert advice in the form of Table8 Blog and Awards: Designed to help diners choose their ideal restaurant without combing through a myriad of sources and reviews, the 100-point rating scale reflects top critical commentary, awards and accolades, as well as input from Table8's in-house editorial team, and Table8 diners. Table8 awards further distinguish restaurants for their exceptional qualities such as "Best Cocktail Program" and "Best Japanese."

Expanded City Support: Table8’s highly curated dining recommendations and events are now available in 13 US cities, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Boston, Washington D.C., Dallas, Houston, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Seattle, and Miami.
