FAQs on restaurant booking software

What is a restaurant reservation system?

A restaurant reservation system primarily enables customers to book table reservations through the restaurant's website. The restaurant staff can then manage bookings digitally from checking how many covers are booked for a particular day, to managing cancellations, booking reminders and confirmations.  

Online booking software makes bookings and table management easier to keep updated and manage than traditional paper diaries. Managers have more visibility of the number of guests expected so they can plan, order and staff effectively.

Customers benefit from a simple, easy-to-use online booking process that guarantees a table at the time and place they want.

Online reservation software may also include additional features that help restaurants manage bookings and enquiries such as automated confirmation and reminder emails and communications, queue management, table management and the authorisation of pre-payments and deposits.

What software is best to use for restaurant bookings?

Most restaurant reservation systems are sold with a core booking functionality that can have additional features added to it depending on the need of your venue. So, the best depends on what you need.

Smaller venues may want the functionality of booking systems and customer communications but have less need for table management, for example.

It is often best to choose a table booking system that allows you to custom build a package that addresses the specific needs of your business whether that be getting more bookings, reducing no-shows, increasing revenue or optimising your venue space.

How much does restaurant reservation software cost?

The cost of a restaurant reservation system will largely depend on what a venue needs - as there are different pricing structures that will suit different businesses. Some solutions offer fixed monthly fee software with different levels of functionality and others have a similar model where there may be a fee for the platform but the cost is commission based with charges based on covers.

It is advised that restaurant operators familiarise themselves with the different pricing structures of reservation systems and align the cost with the software functionality to decide the value it will offer their business.

What is the importance of table booking software?

You can improve the efficiency of your table reservation system by adopting digital table booking software that allows all enquiries to be managed from one centralised platform.

Having an efficient and simple-to-use reservation system is essential for the smooth operation of your restaurant. The advantage of a digital table reservation system over manual booking diaries allows you to keep an accurate and up-to-date record of reservations that can be accessed easily.

As pre-orders and dietary information can be stored along with the booking, there is less room for human errors or missing information, allowing for a better experience for your guest. An online table booking and reservation system also enables you to optimise sales opportunities by optimising your venue space and reducing no-shows by offering pre-orders and deposit taking at the point of booking.
