Many diners use Restaurant Week to try out new restaurants. This is your chance to connect with new guests that can become regular diners. For new diners, being able to try your signature dishes, is often a draw. You can also use the opportunity to test out a new menu item and see how it’s received. Any deals or special offers are welcome and encouraged during SF Restaurant Week.

Some ideas include:

While we don’t require that your restaurant participate during the weekends, we strongly encourage it. Data shows that many diners make their SF Restaurant Week reservations for the weekends. Not offering the menu continuously throughout the program generates considerable confusion for diners who come looking or expecting a special menu. If you are not going to offer the menu on weekends we suggest you contact ALL weekend reservation holders and notify them that you won’t be offering the Restaurant Week menu.

No. SF Restaurant Week is open to any restaurant that wants to participate regardless of whether you use OpenTable’s reservation platform.
