Tech Can Bail Out Procrastinators for Valentine's Day

Alright procrastinators, if you haven't yet made your Valentine's Day dinner reservation, don't despair. Save yourself the trouble of calling around to find an available table and turn to your computer or smartphone instead.
The website and app Open Table is really the gold standard for restaurant reservations. It's so easy to search for an available table based on location or neighborhood, price and desired time.

You can filter your results even further by type of restaurant, like romantic or special occasion, and type of cuisine. Once you find a spot that fits your criteria, Open Table will automatically book your reservation and send you a confirmation email.

If it's too late for a reservation and you'd rather just walk in, check out the free app, NoWait. It lists nearby restaurants and the estimated wait time to get a table. Add your name to the wait list directly from your smartphone.

If you're looking for a last minute res AND a good deal, check out the website Savored, brought to us from the folks at Groupon . Once you select your city, you can search for an available table that night or in the near future. Each free reservation comes with a savings of 20 to 40 percent off your total bill! Sometimes it pays to procrastinate!
