This feature is available on sites with our WordPress.com 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 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.
In order to add the OpenTable block, click on the Add Block button to open the block library and select the OpenTable block.
Alternatively, you can type /opentable in a new block and press enter.
Check out our detailed instructions on how to add content using blocks.
Next, you will enter your OpenTable Reservation Widget embed code. If you need help locating your embed code, check this guide from OpenTable.
In order to reveal the block toolbar, you can click on the block and the toolbar will display. Each block has its own controls that allow you to manipulate the block:
The OpenTable block offers the following options in its toolbar:
- Alignment (includes wide and full-width options if supported by your theme)
- Styles (more on that below)
If you do not see the option to change the width of the block to wide or full-width and your theme supports these options, it is possible the block has been added to a Group block. You can learn more about the Group block here.
When you select a block, you will find additional block settings in the right sidebar. If you do not see the sidebar, you may need to click the Settings icon in the top-right corner to bring up the settings. This icon looks like a square with two uneven columns:
You can choose from four different styles (click each image to see in full screen):
The additional settings allow you to add your OpenTable restaurant ID(s). Your first ID is added automatically when you added your embed code.
You can also select from a list of languages supported by OpenTable and set the reservation form to open in a new window.
