Reccomended restaurants that accept restaurant.com certificates

Justpaula Sep 9, 2009 04:37 PM

I have never used restaurant.com, but my Mom forwarded me an email with the 90% off promo code (NINETY). That sounds like a deal too good to pass up! However, I am lazy and don't feel like looking through the 51 pages of restaurant listings. Well, maybe I will. But, I would prefer to go on your suggestions. I live in Woodside, but anywhere in Queens and western Brooklyn would be great. Thanks!

      I've used the certificates at several restaurnats. If you "refine" the search, it's only 5 or 6 pages for Queens. Just read the fine print on how much you have to spend to enable you to use the certificate.

        Also read the fine print on what hours, how many people, etc.. While nearly every experience I have had with these certificates has been fine, I would also recommend looking for any postings by the door regarding no longer accepting them.

        Ben's has been one of my fav places to use them, but with the $50 minimum they've had for a while I would either have to get a larger group together or risk landing in the hospital!

        Also note: EVERY restaurant.com certificate is valid only for 2 persons or more.

          Before you order, make sure to confirm with your server that they are still accepting the certificates. I've been to places where the managers refused to accept them and I had to spend more than I'd bargained for. Restaurant.com was good about giving me credit towards another certificate.

            I always call ahead before going to a restaurant.com or entertainment book coupon place. Present coupon before ordering, it is on the coupon fine print.

              Part of the fine print on restaurant.com is to present coupon before ordering.
