Now, web check-in at luxury restaurants without trouble
WHILE most of you will be heading out to a fun party to ring in 2016, some will do it the quieter way, over a nice luxury dinner with their families. And these diners might want to download Viptable app for a hassle-free NYE night.
Founded by Pradeep B and Venkat D, Viptable is a digital-first concierge service for luxury dining experience, currently operational in Bengaluru and Hyderabad. That means, you can reserve a table online, a�?in real timea�� at select high-end pubs and restaurants. Ita��s a web check-in service similar to what you do for flights. As soon as you make a reservation on the app or its website viptable.in, you will receive a confirmation via an SMS or email. And if restaurants are running full at that instant, you will be put in a a�?virtual queuea��. Dona��t be heartbroken, because it means your turn should come in a maximum of 30 minutes. Only when a restaurant cana��t accommodate you, the app will recommend similar venues to head to. With every usage, the app analyses customer behaviour, and returns with a�?smarter recommendationsa�?.
Therea��s more. If you are unhappy with your meal, you can send an anonymous message to the restaurant owner directly. In the coming days, you can also book an Ola cab after booking a venue.
In Bengaluru, its services can be availed at 28 outlets including Vapour, I&Monkey, Salt, Maya Firangi Indian Lounge, Puma Social Club and Ministry Of Food at Hilton Bangalore Golf Links. Pradeep explains why this list is limited: a�?We curate restaurants on certain pointers. First, it has to be a luxury space, and second, we dona��t aggregate outlets that are offering similar kind of food, or ambience. We want to simplify your dining experience, which always starts with where you need to go to. a�?
