I was in Boston this week and wanted to eat at one of the nicer (but little) Italian places downtown. Logged onto Open Table for a 7:30 reservation, was informed that there were no available spots within 2 hours of my requested time. Odd, I thought, for a Wednesday night. So I did the unthinkable, picked up the phone, and called. The host seemed surprised to discover that they were fully booked. "We have lots of open tables," he said. "Just come down when you want." So we did, and we waited maybe 5 minutes when we got there for a table to be cleared and got a nice spot and had a great dinner. So, basically, fark Open Table.
