Horrible app. DO NOT USE IT

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.

Garbage App

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.

Recommended arrival time is a joke

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.

Great app

We’ve used the app several times, and so far it’s worked fine.

Search

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

No Wait - not even close

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.

Annoying feature

I don’t like being forced to leave a review.

This app doesn’t work. Terrible experience

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.

1st use with friends from Illinois awesome and will definitely use again 👍🏾

Decent app with some head-scratching flaws

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

Works great

App works great. Look, I get that you’re excited about being connected through Yelp, but please turn off the nag screens. I don’t need a reminder about Yelp every time I go into the Nowait app. And please remove the little reminder at the top of the app.

It worked

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

Doesn’t always work

Nice if it works

Very misleading

First Watch in Hilliard showed as Come On In so we drive an additional 10 miles from Dublin to have a nice brunch. Got to First Watch only to learn that the app “was down” and it was a 20-25 minute wait. If the app isn’t working don’t list as an option much less an option with no wait. Not sure who is to blame - First Watch or Nowait but I’ve lost faith in both. Lack of customer awareness.

Update erased profile

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.

Forced Reviews

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

Questionable accuracy and limited features

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.

Useless!

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!

Did nothing to shorten wait

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.

Doesn’t do the one thing its meant to.

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.

Doesn’t Refresh

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?!

Appt not current

Appt said no wait and we got there and 30 minute or longer wait, yet Appt still showed no wait.

Long Wait

Should rename app to Long Wait. It makes absolutely no difference if you use this app. You wait just as long when you arrive.

This isn’t for reservations!

Okay, Saturday night, party of 6, one in a wheelchair, call the restaurant Friday, “oh, you’ll have to use the no wait app. Uh, okay. Finally find the app, not on the App Store search, it only gives you the restaurant employee version of the app. Had to find it through the restaurant website. 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. I’ll start looking for restaurants that can offer real reservations, this app is poorly conceived and designed for the restaurants convenience not the customer.

Confused...

Not sure if it was the restaurant or the app but the app told me there was 6 parties in front of me and not more than 5 minutes later I get a notice that our table is ready. Not useful, accurate or helpful whatsoever.

Still have to wait

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.

Scott

This app has worked once and has not worked once. It’s worth a try, but not dependable.

Great app

This App is Amazing! Hope more restaurants use this!

Don’t use!

Awful. Doesn’t refresh. There was a restaurant we kept checking every few minutes. Went from no wait to over a two hour wait!

No Wait has a long wait.

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.

Doesn’t update in real time

Driving to a restaurant in lbi I checked the app multiple times and there was no wait. Closed out app and restarted and now there’s a 50 minute wait. Not a good app.

If one hour is “No Wait” it’s a great app😡

Watched the app, left for Chuys in Birmingham AL, should have had 15 mins left to wait upon arrival-25 max and the hostess tells us “it will be one hour minimal” kinda worthless and first time user. NOW we will never trust it.

Horrible decision to make people download an app when a webpage would have worked

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.

Email Scammers

Started getting junk email within 15 minutes of downloading and creating a profile. Have deleted the app but still continue to get 10 to 15 emails a day from people trying to sell me something. I blame Apple for allowing these folks to continue to be an approved app.

No refresh on restaurants wait time

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.

Misleading info from restaurants

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.

Can be annoying

If you’re riding in the car and want to use the map feature to find a participating restaurant along the way or at your anticipated destination, the map snaps back to your current location. It’s frustrating and renders the feature useless on the move unless you’re stuck in traffic.

Can’t Be Trusted

There was a 30-45 minute wait at a location that was 2 miles from us, so we spent 10 bucks & took Uber to the destination. We got in the car at 11:30. The app recommended we arrive at 11:52. We got here & checked in at 11:45. It’s now 12:06 & we’re still waiting behind 12 parties. We could have saved 10 bucks & just walked to one of the other restaurants around us that had longer wait times at the time we “got in line” at this restaurant. Horrible app. Deleting, won’t use again.

Useless

Twice now I have used this app to “get in line” at a local Chuy’s restaurant. Both times, the wait time the app reports has no basis in reality. Today, the app said 5-15 min wait... even toggled up to 6-16 min. We arrived and were told the wait was 45-60 min. When we asked why, we were told that the app was not tied-in to the restaurant’s system, & times are often wrong. What’s the point then???

No wait!!

Fantastic app! Wish more restaurants would get on board!!

It’s just a ploy

It doesn’t save time, I checked in at exactly the suggested time and still waited 45 mins, the original estimated wait time. The app is just designed to make you feel like a restaurant’s 1st priority but the experience is no different than someone who doesn’t have the app.

Restaurants stay away from this app

If you are a restaurant manager my advice is to stay away from this app, it will make you loose clients! This app is so bad that potential clients will go somewhere else. The app is so limited that doesn’t allow you to search for the restaurant you want. It will just show you a list of restaurants that according to the app are nearby and will make you pick from those. If you look up a restaurant franchising name it might show you locations 70 miles away, but not the one you want to go to...

Doesn’t update properly to display wait times

Great concept with poor execution. This app does not update the wait time at a restaurant until you go all the way out of a search. I should also be able to put a place in line even if there isn’t a wait. This has lead to showing up at a restaurant showing no wait that has a 30-45 minute wait.

Horrible!!

2 times in a row now the app has said Come on in! Only to arrive and find a 45 minute wait. What a load of crap this app is!!!!!!!

Worthless

Kept checking the app on 30 minutes drive to the restaurant. It kept saying “no wait - come on in”. Had read some other reviews that said the app had trouble refreshing so sometimes you had to re-search for a restaurant to get current data. I did that and got the same result. Got to the restaurant and they said 60 to 90 minutes wait. I told them about the app. They looked chagrined and said to refresh the data, you have to double click the home button and swipe the NoWait app off. Then launch it again. Absolute rubbish.

LIES!!!!

After the service was over I was forced to rate the restaurant (it said optional but no way out of it to proceed). I thought it was a glitch so I deleted the app, and re downloaded it. During setup it asks if it wanted to keep my history, my history took me right back to where I was with the forced rating of the restaurant, that says OPTIONAL!! I don’t often rate just my thing. But since I had to rate something here you go.

Not very effective

There’s a restaurant by my house that is part of NoWait — the only restaurant near me that uses NoWait as it seems very limited and not popular with restaurants. I tried using it. The app told me to get to the restaurant in 20 min. I did. And the. Waited another 30 min for my table. What’s the use in that? I could have just gone to the restaurant without using the app and waited the same 30 min. I’ve now deleted the app from my phone. Not worth the space it was taking up.

Come Right In

You should be able to reserve a spot in line. Closing and reloading the app on a drive into the restaurant is a bit too much.

Works for me

I have only used it for Buttermilk in Naperville but it has worked perfect every time. Thank you!!
