OpenSeat

Virginia Is For Lovers presents OpenSeat, a program that lets you opt in to share an open seat at your table with someone new. Groups of any size can participate - just book for your party, and if there is another diner or diners that also opt in you may be seated together. In return, you will receive an appetizer. It’s a chance for you to prove that Virginia is for Food Lovers and meet a new friend in the process.

Before you complete your reservation, just write “OpenSeat” in the special request section.
