I had the chance to try this out over the weekend and I really enjoyed it. What I thought was neat was that I asked for a reservation at one place and because there was no availability it recommended another, similar restaurant. My wife and I ended up trying a new place and really enjoyed ourselves. I find that we never end up trying enough new places because doing research/reading yelp reviews/etc always seems like daunting task during the week and by the time Saturday night rolls around we haven't made reservations anywhere. I'm sure there are lots of apps out there that recommend restaurants based on your other likes/tastes, but getting it through an SMS/chat interface made it seem like something I'd be more likely to use regularly. I wonder if the makers plan to do more with recommendations through this UI or just focus on reservations for now?
