Fantastic service

Wow! This service is amazing. I've used this to plan ahead and make reservations at some of the hottest/ toughest NYC restaurants and they've always been able to deliver! I've used it for personal and professional dinners. The team at IKTC have always been super responsive and helpful. Thanks.

A complete scam...

If I could give this service/app negative stars I would, it's a total sham. I purchased the elite membership and to this day, I've never been able to get a "hard to get" time or venue. After requesting you get an email that tell you there's no availability and then you're offered another venue that anyone can get reservations to. At least with services like OpenTable you see immediately that there's no availability and it's free. IKnowtheChef charges up to $500/year for their supposed connections and concierge service. To add insult to injury, they continue to show you possible times even after they've confirmed there is no availability while claiming a 97% success rate for a time you were just told wasn't available. To date, my success rate is 0% even when attempting to book days in advance. I actually know a couple of chefs and restauranteurs and I can tell you this service in no way approximates that experience. Do yourself a favor, save $500 and avoid this app and service at all costs! You could probably use that $500 over the course of a year to bribe hostesses and have more success.

Awesome app

Much better than open-table! Not only have i gotten a bunch of reservations that weren't available via open table but they've sent out champagne or dessert on the house during every reservation. A++
