Two of my favorite sites are joining forces: Yelp and OpenTable. Have you ever used them? Yelp is a review site; you can review any business on there but it’s heavy on the restaurant reviews. It’s always the first place I check when I’m considering a new restaurant or looking for someplace different. And OpenTable is my go-to place for reservations. I book all my client lunches through them. Yelp users have been asking for a way to book a reservation directly from the review page and now they can.

Incidentally, if you haven’t registered your business with Yelp and other review sites like Kudzu, please take a moment to do so. Make sure you check your reviews regularly and respond immediately to any negative ones. Let us know if you need help; this is part of the Online Reputation Management service that we offer our clients.
