American Express introduced a new online restaurant reservations service which allows users to make and instantly confirm online restaurant reservations at hundreds of restaurants throughout the USA. Users of the service also can conveniently access restaurant ratings and reviews while making their online dining reservations. With the new ‘American Express Online Restaurant Reservations’ service users first select a city. They can then search by cuisine, neighborhood and cost, or they can choose to see all the restaurants that take online reservations in that city. Users automatically receive an email confirmation regarding the details of their reservation. The service is powered by OpenTable’s real-time reservations network and also includes Zagat Survey’s consumer-based restaurant ratings and reviews.
