Reserve’s mission is to help restaurants and guests connect to create memorable dining experiences. Since we launched in 2014, we’ve helped seat nearly 9M people in more than 500 restaurants in 104 cities across America. We learned a lot along the way, and love the experiences and relationships we helped create.

Reserve has moved through those stages in the past two years and is better off for it — we now fully understand our mission and have a stronghold on our position in the industry. We don’t need to crawl or walk anymore. Now, we can sprint.
