Honest Codger's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 6/3/18 5:15 PM
This app worked much better 2-3 years ago. When I try to “get in line” at a restaurant that uses Nowait, I get a message saying “problem getting in line.” This seems to be a chronic issue. NoWait has a long way to go to catch up to Open Table.
ErinKnows's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 6/3/18 1:29 PM
This app is nice to have but there have been many times it says our table is ready and we go in only to find out our table was either given away or not truly ready. I realize this may not completely be the apps fault but there has to be a more accurate way to do the tables. Also not very many restaurants in the OKC area use it yet. So if you can get more restaurants using it...that would be great!
Ewingellie's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 5/6/18 3:27 PM
Had such a disappointing experience w No wait this morning. As my family and I left for brunch, we tried to get in line via no wait. The app crashed - wouldn’t even find the restaurant, which it had previously. Once it seemed to correct itself, after 15 minutes, we then could not get a place in line. The message ‘could not hold place’ just kept coming up. And now we are at our brunch destination, waiting an hour. First world problems for sure but come on.... The app let us down.
mmmm1's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 5/6/18 2:25 AM
Have used the app a few times and had a huge fail tonight. App said no wait and when we arrived it was 30-45 min. Talking to the hostess they said it was steady all night and the wait has been consistent. Either the app is not updating or the restaurant is not.
Navarre diner's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 5/4/18 3:06 AM
Have used this app three times and have only been successful in getting a meal once. The other two times our reservation was mysteriously cancelled. The restaurant told us that after so many minutes on the list it automatically purges the list. I was skeptical of this explanation the first time but it happened again later. We no longer eat at restaurants using this app for seating. OpenTable is considerably more reliable.
AppEnthusiast100's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 5/27/18 3:23 PM
It isn’t reasonable to expect everyone to download an app which is used probably once or twice a month for most people. It’s also infuriating that I have to spend my own data to download an app for *one* piece of information, that could easily be placed in a webpage. Literally, my place in the line - it’s one number. You guys need a reality check.
Edmondg1's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 5/27/18 1:11 PM
Why on earth does it require me to be within 20 miles to make a reservation? If the wait time is 98 to 128 minutes and I can drive there in 40 minutes am essentially shut out. What a c*** experience!
Seara272003's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 5/21/18 1:38 PM
App that once worked great, now delivers opposite effect. It used to work such that when you arrived at your recommended time, you were just a few minutes away from getting your table. Last few recent uses of the app, a new wait time of 30 minutes began once we arrived and checked-in. Last use was informed around 5:50pm that wait was 23-38 minutes. We got in line on the app and was told to arrive at 6:20 and that 1 party was ahead of us. We arrived at 6:15 and then a new wait if 30 minutes began once we checked in. If we had just driven to the restaurant (10 minutes away) at 5:50 and waited we would’ve easily been seated by 6:30. Using the app, we waited 25 minutes to leave, then was told to wait another 30 by the restaurant once we arrived. The app actually had the opposite effect of making our wait longer than just showing up without it. We walked out of the restaurant and were seated right away at a great place that close by. No app needed.

Bigbirdmba's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 5/20/18 2:40 PM
The last two times I’ve used this app at Broken Egg, the timing was way off. Last week I ended up waiting an hour and a half longer than what I was told. Today, the app told me to arrive at 10:06 and right now it’s 10:35 and I’m still waiting for a table.
Pook Nasty's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 5/20/18 2:08 PM
Terrible app. Only has like 3 good restaurants that participate and every time you try to use it, it will say “Problem Getting in line.” Not worth the download.
Still Worshipping's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 5/20/18 1:49 PM
I used to find this useful, but now I can’t stand it. It’s not always accurate. The restaurants listed aren’t required to use it all the time, so it will often say “Come on in” when there’s actually a 30-minute wait. And, I absolutely hate that it forces you to rate the last restaurant before you can use it. It says “optional,” however, you can’t progress forward to another reservation until you give a rating.
Rochcoach's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 5/2/18 12:06 AM
The interface is usable but there are so many s***** mechanical problems. For example, if there is no wait at the restaurant, you cannot get in line to reserve a seat or at the very least put you at the front of the line when you arrive. Instead, you frequently are told “Come on in!” But when you arrive are told to wait sometimes up to an hour! If I can’t sign in until I arrive, what’s the point of this app?
EX-FSQ-USER's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 5/18/18 2:20 PM

Jty111's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 5/13/18 4:21 PM
WOULD NOT RECOMMEND. Downloaded this app to try and save some time going out for brunch. The app estimated at 10 min wait and suggested we get there at 10:30. When we arrived at the restaurant they said it would be 30-45 min. We decided to give the app another try and the same thing happened. This apps estimates are grossly inaccurate. It has one job and fails miserably.
Deepread's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 5/13/18 3:22 PM
The app is a good idea and works well. When you have a large party (over 5) on a busy day, then the issue is that while you move up the line, it gets exponentially slower as you get closer to the top. That’s because larger parties keep their priority, but there’s frequently fewer tables for large parties. Then it’ll seem like smaller parties who came later are being seated ahead of you.
ELDrizzle's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 5/13/18 12:54 PM
It doesn’t actually tell you if there’s No Wait - since it doesn’t update without closing and opening the app, it tells you there’s ‘no wait’ if there was just one table open when you opened the app, and then NEVER UPDATES. I use this app every Sunday, when I’m driving to breakfast, somehow there’s always NO WAIT. When I get to breakfast, oh WAIT, 15-25 minutes. Like clockwork. This app is garbage.
wingedsandals's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 5/13/18 12:04 AM
It is a good idea in theory. Unfortunately, many restaurants are using “No Wait” to drum up business by saying there’s no wait when there really is a very long wait. We went to a Saltgrass in Richardson, TX on May 12, 2018 that said they had no wait and the entire parking lot was full, and people were parking on the street. This has happened so many times with many different restaurants. The app is no longer worth my time. I’m deleting it.

501 concern's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 4/8/18 4:12 PM
The whole purpose of using this app is tarnished when I can’t get in line until I am almost there. I tend to travel more than 25 miles to a lot of restaurants. So I am driving when I am 10 miles away from a restaurant and with the laws the way it is you can’t be on your phone and driving. I try to get in line to tone my arrival but if I have to wait after driving 25 miles and can’t get in line until I am almost at the spot is not a likely situation so I have been only going to restaurants that DON’T HAVE THE 10 MILE STIPULATION😒

The Bowzer's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 4/7/18 1:39 AM
Use of this app ruined one of my favorite restaurants. The estimated wait time is seldom accurate, and if you wait to “get in line” based on that time you could wind up waiting an hour or more.

MommyHatesLines's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 4/30/18 2:54 PM
The only reason for this app is to give you the most up to date wait time for a restaurant. It does that the first time you open the app. It does not auto refresh each time you look at the app. You have to completely close down the app and reopen it each time you want to check the wait time. I didn’t know this and ended up waiting over an hour at a local restaurant because I didn’t add my name to the air list because NoWait told me to ‘come right in’. This app has one job and it can’t even do that.

Used it for the first time - after constantly refreshing it, the app went from “No Wait, Come On In” to 23 parties ahead of me within 30 seconds. If it’s not done in real time, then there is zero value.
GBTG1's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 4/29/18 1:41 PM
Horrible experience in the app. I searched for a restaurant and it said no wait (great) so I drove over. I continued to check on the way and it continues to show no wait. When I arrived at the restaurant there was a 40 min wait. When I checked the app again it showed no wait. It does NOT REFRESH unless you exit the search and initiate a new search. I had even exited the restaurant and come back to the search results... but that didn’t refresh the results either. After performing a new search it finally showed the 40 min wait. That’s the whole point of the app, isn’t it? This seems like a failure of the fundamental purpose.
clsiewert's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 4/28/18 5:17 PM
Staff at Cafe Hollander told me to use this. I downloaded the day before I was meeting a small group. The app told me no wait at 11, noon, and 1230. When I arrived at 12:30, they told me 35 minute wait. Add to the fact that almost no restaurants use this, I’m deleting after lunch.

I hate this app. It claims you have “no wait” if you use it. Every time I have tried to use this app I end up waiting a long time. If there is “no wait” you can’t hop in a waitlist knowing that you won’t arrive for some time. Then you check the app and there is suddenly 10+ people ahead of you on the waitlist. So then you have to wait! I don’t understand why restaurants don’t just take reservations...
Unacho's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 4/1/18 4:14 PM
Work directly with the restaurant or find another option. The wait times presented in the app are always incorrect. They will say a 5-15 minute wait and when you arrive the restaurant states 30-40 minutes.

Georgesmom64's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 3/8/18 10:45 PM
I do appreciate having an ap that can help with time. I’ve only used it once so far, so my experience may relate to this particular restaurant. My place in line fluctuated. When I inquired at the front desk, it was because some ppl take a while to reply when they are called. All in all, I was seated about 40 minutes later than the ap initially projected.

PIE PERSON's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 3/31/18 9:52 PM
I downloaded this app and had it in my restaurant for several years. At first it was nice not to have to babysit/guard the pagers however but that quickly changed! The "old" company that owned No Wait (NW) was really nice to work with. You could actually get someone on the phone... imagine that! NW's extremely limited notification text only allows for a very basic message. My restaurants are located in a seasonal/tourist town and we get quite busy during the summer months. Being in a tourist location it requires a bit more detail as to how the reservation process works in order to keep our restaurant running efficiently... this app did NOT allow this much detail. In fact it got MUCH worse once Yelp bought the company. They were obviously more interested in pushing their own service/site then having an app that worked for the restaurants that they were allegedly serving. The outgoing texts could only be around 10 words, compared to their paragraph about their service with a very long link attached! Not sure why I can send a text of any length but only a sentence or two when using there text service... and they are much more expensive then some of their competitors! There are several apps that do what NW does and I would recommend looking at those before signing up for this service! Yelp only looks out to serve themselves!!!

Register, look for the restaurant, okay now we’re getting somewhere. No wait, that’s cool, but it’s only noon, I want to arrive at 6. No way to reserve table for that far in the future.

Generally speaking a decent app. However two critical and puzzling flaws: First, if you stay ion a specific restaurant page it will not update the wait time - for instance if you are driving to the restaurant, by the time you get there a waitlist may have formed and you won’t know until you get there. Second, even if it says “come on in” there should be a way to put your name on a list to reserve a spot. If they would fix these issues, it would be a great app

Description says you can make a reservation and walk in with no wait- that is a lie! This app serves absolutely no purpose whatsoever! Completely useless!
Meanstrk's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
This app has worked once and has not worked once. It’s worth a try, but not dependable.
oliver twain's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
This app literally just doesn’t work. I made a reservation at the friendly toast in Portsmouth. Told us the wait would be an hour. We got there when it told us to, had to wait 30 more minutes. That became an entire extra hour. Don’t bother with this app.
JGeary's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
Used this at Dougs Day Diner in Loveland 9/2/18. It did absolutely nothing to shorten our wait. We waited at least an hour and watched them take people as they came in that had NOT used the app. We were in line with everyone else. I would not use this in hopes of getting ahead at all.

The restaurant’s suggested wait time was 15 mins when looked at the app. So we reached as suggested by the app. But the restaurant did not honor the time and we ended up waiting in line for 15-20 mins, same as if we would have just walked in instead.

Appt said no wait and we got there and 30 minute or longer wait, yet Appt still showed no wait.
Wishful-Thinker's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
No wait was wonderful until this morning when I tried to used it at First Watch! It is now a part of Yelp and does not work! Link just circles possibly because I don’t belong to Yelp nor do I want to! Sad day.
Wish it had..'s Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
I’ve used this app several times. Each time it says “show up at x o’clock, your table is almost ready” and here we are 30 mins later still waiting on a table.
HeidiHe's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
That app recommended a 10:32 arrival time. I arrived at 10:30, the restaurant says I still have 25-30 minute wait. Apparently when you check unit gives you a range of 22-44 minute wait. The recommended time is based on the 22 minutes. Not worth it at all. Only good for checking to see how busy a restaurant is. From now on, if there’s a wait, I’ll go someplace else.

I have had several bad experiences with Nowait. I don’t recommend it.
BillC's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
I’ve been using the Nowait app for years now and today when I opened it up to use it my profile was missing no name no email no history. They just did an update and it wiped everything out from my account.
Jenx24's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
Awful. Doesn’t refresh. There was a restaurant we kept checking every few minutes. Went from no wait to over a two hour wait!

Nice if it works
BPB - MN's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
Don’t use this app until they fix the restaurant refresh rate, if it even refreshes at all. I have had restaurant hosts recommend I call instead of the app. I walked into Red Rabbit in MN expecting 0 wait, turned out to be a 1 1/2 hour wait. Glad I paid 2 hours parkings for the 5 minutes I was there.
Business TRV's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
While this app may be a time saver, since you don’t have to wait at the location, it forces you to review every location you visit. I resist using this reservation app
clemcadilhopper's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
Won’t let you get in line unless you are within a mile. If your that close then why bother, it won’t make 5 minutes difference in your wait time. The idea is that you get in line but not be at the Restraunt until just before your table is ready.
soccerbaby's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
The app interface is nice, but a huge issue needs to be fixed by developers. You have to completely close and re-open in order to see a refreshed wait time. Tonight we waited for dinner and thought there was no wait time so we could leave whenever. Turns out we had to restart the entire app only to learn the wait was now over an hour. This is a key feature of the app and needs to be fixed OR an alert needs to come up when you open the app telling you to completely close and reopen in order to see correct wait time.
Scrambler_sam's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
It will tell you the wait is 1 - 11 minutes, and when you show up at the suggested time, the wait is twice as long. The position in like never seems to update.

Need ability to just search. You do not need to know my location just let me choose the place when I search.

I wish more restaurants would use this handy app!! There are only 2 in my area.
1/;:$:!,7,&/'s Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
This app provides very little to no update on the status of a restaurant waiting time, which is the hole point of the app in the first place. In order to get updated info you'll have to go all the way out and back in to the restaurant you were looking for to force a refresh, totally waste of time and false sense of information.
Claire Kwe's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
I tried using this for a restaurant because that restaurant forces you to use this ridiculous app. Everything seemed fine with it telling me how many people were ahead of me and whatnot but then at some point it randomly stopped telling me that and when I got to the restaurant they said THEY HAD NO ONE BY MY NAME ON THEIR LIST. Then the hostess went on to say that sometimes the app glitches and that I could put my name on the list now and wait another hour and a half! This app is a complete disgrace not giving update notifications or anything and just glitching so people don't even show up the restaurant's list. I'm furious and will never use this app again. Complete bullsh*t
Mcdupree's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
It’s kinda limited on restaurants but it had the one I needed (Pluckers in Arlington) saved our seat almost an hour ahead and dodged a near 1 hour wait into 15 minutes when we got there. It works honestly. So a solid 4 Stars from me
creativeasylum's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
We’ve used the app several times, and so far it’s worked fine.
Shawn 0813's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
There should be an option to report a restaurant that is on the app but doesnt actually participate. It's misleading. Just got to a restaurant with "come on in" that is actually over an hour.
dave kk's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
I use this app constantly. I can’t tell you how much time it saves me and really determines where I choose to eat.
xoxooxox😘's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
Followed the arrival time from the app and it got us here 45 minutes before we were able to actually get a table. The hostess and wait staff said that it happens all the times. Don’t bother.
MrCognitive's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
Seems like an app interested in knowing where I always am, and collecting a significant amount of data from me. I should be able to search for locations with keyboard input, rather than giving access to my location.
Jimitoofast's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
It doesn’t refresh!!! Checked out the wait at a delicious place that always takes forever to sit down at and of course I showed up expecting no wait like the app said and instead found an hour long list. What’s more irritating is the staff told me about the shortcomings of the app when I arrived, why do they keep using this trash.
Dookie 2x's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
Horrible implementation. I tried saving a spot in line at a popular restaurant and it wouldn’t allow it since “there was no wait”. I kept checking periodically while we were on our way and it consistently said “no wait” “come in”. We get to the restaurant and there’s 14 parties ahead of us and a 50min wait. What’s the point of offering this service?!
philfreo's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
If the link that restaurants send customers is a webpage that literally says the words “we know it’s annoying to have to download an app just to see your place in line“, then maybe instead of doing the annoying thing you should just do the thing that people actually want which is to let them do it on the webpage instead.

Turkey Creek Knoxville location, Oct 20, 2018. Status said come right in. Actually arrived to be told 15 to 30 minute wait with line out the door. Should be able to report abuse.

Tony163694's Review of Nowait GuestReviewed on 12/14/18 7:45 AM
I downloaded this app as a restaurant that we wanted to go to was using it. We got in line via the app, and were told our table would be ready in 40 minutes. We arrived about 35 minutes later, and were told there was 1:30 wait for dinner and that “that app doesn’t work”. We went elsewhere for dinner and I’m deleting this app.
