OpenTable Block

This feature is available on sites with our Premium, Business, and Commerce plans. If your site has one of our legacy plans, it is available on the Pro plan.

As a restaurant owner, your ultimate goal online is to drive reservations and OpenTable can help you achieve just that. With the OpenTable block, your visitors will be able to book a table right from a post or page on your site.


If you do not have an OpenTable listing for your restaurant or cafe and wish to create one, you can sign up here.
