Now Ravinia Diners Can Use OpenTable With No Reservations


One of the most exciting changes in the dining pavilion this summer is the ability to make Mirabelle and Park View reservations through OpenTable. While it may seem a small change for some, we will now be utilizing the most advanced reservation software out there. Not only will this help create more awareness of dining opportunities, but, more important, it will tremendously improve the ease of access to reservation information for our guests.

With this Internet-based reservation system, we are able to add several new features to the process. First, guests can now immediately find up-to-date restaurant availability from the OpenTable website—no more waiting on hold or leaving messages to get the most current availability at each restaurant. Instead, guests can access this information at whatever time of day or night is most convenient for them.

The next most exciting feature is the new waitlist technology. Is the restaurant fully booked? Go ahead and put yourself on the waitlist and we will give you a call should a table become available. Still no luck? Don’t give up! Should a table become available after the gates open and you’re still on our list, we’ll also contact you letting you know that we can fit you in. With the simple push of a button on your smartphone, you can let us know if you’re on your way or you’ve made other arrangements.

Your table is waitingAnother valuable upgrade with this technology is the ability to open up our highly coveted patio tables on the day of the performance. In the past, we haven’t been able to offer outdoor reservations due to weather restrictions. Now, when we’re certain the evening will be ideal for alfresco dining, we are able to go into OpenTable and offer these tables to our guests on the day of the performance. This means that if you haven’t been able to secure a reservation prior to the evening’s performance, you can check back at the OpenTable website or app when you wake up in the morning and the sun is shining.

These are only a few of the fantastic features we are now able to offer our guests with this new technology, not to mention OpenTable dining points, and suggested dining opportunities nearby. We’re thrilled to offer these amazing new features to our diners, so create your OpenTable profile today (at opentable.com) to reserve our best tables and take advantage of these new options all summer long.
