OpenTable, a popular online platform for making restaurant reservations, today announced that it has partnered with Caviar, Grubhub, and Uber Eats to offer delivery and pick-up options at thousands of restaurants.

When searching for a restaurant or visiting a restaurant profile page in the OpenTable app, users will now see a "get it delivered" button, which will direct them to the restaurant's preferred delivery partner to complete the transaction. For restaurants with multiple delivery partners, OpenTable will list each option.


At launch, Caviar, Grubhub, and Uber Eats will power delivery for over 8,000 restaurants across 90 metro areas in the United States through the OpenTable app. Future features will include estimated delivery time and cost.

OpenTable says the delivery feature will be available starting today as part of an update to its iOS app, free on the App Store.

I get it, but to me the fun of living in an area with a lot of restaurants is actually going to the place, enjoying the atmosphere, getting out of the house.
Plus when you order delivery for things, you still gotta do dishes afterwards.
Not that I’d never order for delivery, but very rarely.

I'm right there with you - although sometimes it's really nice to get to enjoy my favorite entre from my favorite restaurant in the quiet of my own home while the kid sleeps. No babysitter, etc.

Oh good, more middlemen. Restaurants get screwed by these apps, who skim off money from every transaction. I call my restaurants directly for delivery, or use their own websites if they have them.

Also, as the recent Doordash scam has reminded us all, please TIP IN CASH if you want to make sure 100% of your tip goes to your delivery person.

Its impossible to find a worse App and service than Grubhub. DoorDash isn’t perfect but it’s the best one.

Same here. I also don't love the feeling of generating a ton of plastic waste any time I order food. I know you can request them not to bring it, but what's the deal with places bringing you plastic forks and crap by default when you're at home where presumably you have dishes and cutlery?
