First Table is a restaurant marketing platform that leverages your first table of the evening to attract the attention of the hungry, restaurant-going public!
Get those first customers in the door Our research has shown that customers attract customers. It makes sense; a customer eating in your restaurant is an endorsement that your restaurant is good! And it shows you’re open.
It’s free! No commission, no sign-up fee, and there’s no minimum period Apart from offering an earlybird special on your first table of the evening there is no cost to the restaurant.
New customers Over 130,000 diners have registered with First Table over the last 3 years. Seventy five percent of First Table diners indicate it's their first time dining at each restaurant. Treat them to a fantastic time and they'll tell their friends. They'll come back too and they won't always dine at early o'clock!
Offer your first table when you choose You’re free to pick the days and the time you offer your first table. This means you don’t have to discount on weekends if you don’t want to. We'll give you a login so you can block out dates when you're already busy, like Valentine's Day.
Raving reviews The problem with restaurant review websites is that customers tend to only leave a review when they have something to complain about. First Table solves this by actively encouraging and incentivising all First Table diners to leave a review after dining at your restaurant.
Facebook Likes All diners are encouraged to like your Facebook page so you can keep marketing to them.
You will have access to our database If you’ve got a special on, a new menu, a new chef or any other update that you want everyone to know about, we will send the news out to our customers in your area, for free!
First Table's online magazine Tell the world your restaurant’s story in our high-quality online publication that your restaurant can feature in, for free.
ResDiary integration If you’re using ResDiary for your reservations it couldn’t be easier – First Table is fully integrated for a seamless booking experience.
It’s free marketing Did we mention it’s free? First Table's revenue model is to charge diners, meaning restaurants don't pay a cent to use the platform.
First Table provides reservations for 2 to 4 people at the time you open, on the evenings you choose, by offering half price meals. You will still get full price on drinks. Diners can book your first table up to a week in advance.
Regarding your product, my husband took some persuading from Aiden and I, as he is always wary of the unnecessarily discounting product, hence why he has never subscribed to The Entertainment Book.
What we like about First Table is that you have control over what time and what days guests dine. We have found it a great way to bring life into the courtyard in the late afternoon, encouraging other diners to come in.
Although it is always difficult to gauge the effect on bottom line I believe that First Table has increased Sasso’s profile with local clientele, something that we have found challenging in a crowded and heavily discounted market. Radio advertising had very little effect, but through your channel we can actually see the local diners who have visited via the review process.
I am more than happy for you to use my feedback as a testimonial.
