The state of the restaurant industry

As the COVID-19 pandemic keeps people home and some cities, states, and countries limit restaurant operations, our community of nearly 60,000 restaurants faces unprecedented challenges. We’ve summarized the data we have from the restaurants on our platform and are updating it daily.

Please support your local restaurants during this turbulent time if you can. OpenTable has put together several recommendations on how to do so safely.

To help our restaurant partners, we’ve pulled together a Preparedness Resource Center to offer guidance on handling downturns and temporary closures, and have waived our gift cards fees to restaurants. We’re also working with restaurant associations in their discussions for government relief.

We’re all in this together. We’ll continue to share data, offer insights, and do everything we can to support our partners until this crisis passes.

About the data

This data shows year-over-year seated diners at restaurants on the OpenTable network across all channels: online reservations, phone reservations, and walk-ins. For year-over-year comparisons by day, we compare to the same day of the week from the same week in the previous year. For example, we’d compare Tuesday of week 11 in 2020 to Tuesday of week 11 in 2019. Only states or cities with 50+ restaurants in the sample are included. All such restaurants on the OpenTable network in either period are included.

To better reflect the state of the overall industry, this dataset is based on a sample of approximately 20,000 restaurants that provide OpenTable with information on all of their inventory. This sample of restaurants chosen typically accounts for a significant majority of our seated online reservations.

Resources

In addition to extending price cuts through 2020, we’ve launched a variety of resources and guides to help our restaurant partners plan for reopening, navigate policy changes, handle temporary closures and drive additional revenue sources. We update these weekly with new content and resources
