Reserve Launches in Chicago

Hello, Chicago!

At Reserve, we’ve been focused on bringing our dining concierge service to more people and more partners in more places. So we’re thrilled to announce that starting today, hungry Chicagoans can now use Reserve at more than 20 amazing restaurants in The Windy City.


Whether you’re celebrating date night at Michelin-starred Sepia or closing a deal at The Kitchen, Reserve, your dining concierge, is here to help. Just open the app and give us a few details, and then choose from a curated list of some of the city’s best restaurants. You’ll be able to see details about the restaurant’s atmosphere, menu, cuisine and more, and easily add any special notes that you would like passed along to the restaurant.


Once you’ve made your selection, you’ll see recommendations of other places you might want to try, and can add them to your request if you want to shake things up a bit. Reserve will work with all of the restaurants you request to get you a great seat. If a restaurant doesn’t have exactly what you requested, they might offer you an alternative option - say a table available a bit later in the evening - and hold it just for you for a limited time.


Our restaurant partners are known for their delicious food and wonderful hospitality, and after enjoying your meal Reserve will seamlessly handle the bill. The total for your party, as well as tax, tip and Reserve’s $5 concierge fee, will automatically be charged to your card on file, making payment effortless.

It’s no surprise that a city named after a food has a rich culinary tradition, and we’ve found many wonderful partners here in Chicago.  Diners will be able to use Reserve at more than 20 restaurants in the city, making this our biggest launch yet!
