Restauranteurs might loathe them, but diners love OpenTable. Over the years, it's evolved into its own app and even allowed members to submit ratings and reviews. A San Francisco-based company, we can only imagine the hate mail it received when it released its Diners' Choice: Top 100 Restaurants in the United States; no SF establishments were on the list.
Orange County received 1 percent unoccupied love, as The Hobbit was the only
Southern California Los Angeles/Orange County location listed (Addison at the Grand Del Mar being the only one farther south). Kudos to the Hobbit for keeping guests coming back for three-hour dinners!
