OPEN TABLE - Who likes it??

I just tried to make a reservation for N/naka. Went to their website and "open table" jumped in. I filled out the info - I've used it before Then they turned me down saying my card was "invalid." (nonsense) So I entered it again. then Open Table orders me to "sign in" which I did. I was recognized as a prior user. I received no confirmation. So I don't know if my reservation went through. I like to talk to a human voice and make the dam reservation. Am I missing anything?

      What "card" are you talking about?

      1. Open table always sends an email confirmation right away. I would call the restaurant immediately. Also you can look up your upcoming reservations on the open table site once you've signed in on the top right corner of the screen.

        1. I never have a problem with OT. Dont know of any card. Also, sometimes there is more availability when you call then when you try to book OT so I will often call if the time I want is not available on OT.

              Open Table has never asked me for a credit card. Does n/naka require you to leave a cc number to make a reservation? That's not on OT if so but rather the restaurant.

                yes - n/naka does requre a card for a rez.

                  Yes, n/naka requires a credit card AND a phone number so they can call you 3 days ahead of your reservation to discuss menu options and choices. Class act.

                    That's the RESTAURANT, it's not OpenTable.

          1. I love it. Make reservations in minutes without having to talk to another soul.
