Last month, I stumbled into Umami Burger, a restaurant here in San Francisco. It was lunchtime on a weekend and the restaurant was crowded, but the host asked for my mobile phone number and told me the restaurant would text me when a table was ready.
There's an app for that, it appears, since the host put my number into an iPad. And it worked: About 10 minutes later, while I was out for a walk, the message came in. The app in question: NoshList, which is leaving closed beta and should be appearing for free in the App Store tonight. View the article on CNet

The NoshList app lets restaurants send a text when they can seat you, giving you the freedom to take a walk or get some air. It's a free app for restaurant owners - and might be one that's worth mentioning to your favorite host or hostess. View the article on CBS
It's a familiar scene at any bustling restaurant during the Sunday brunch rush -- the only thing standing between you and eggs Benedict is an unwieldy waitlist and an overwhelmed hostess who may not remember your name when a table opens up in an hour.

Party of four!" out the restaurant door -- is enough to try the patience of the most avid restaurant diner and trip up even the most smoothly run restaurant operations.

NoshList has provided Umami Burger an efficient and streamlined way to managing our restuarant waitlist. Our patrons appreciate the ease of text and automated phone call alerts to let them know when their tables are ready and we appreciate the unlimited free texting and phone call alerts to diners.Jason Berkowitz Vice President of Hospitality - Umami Burger Restaurant Group (13 locations / 37 planned)
When we were planning to open our second Nopalito location there was no doubt in our minds that we would be using NoshList to manage our waitlist. NoshList gives our diners the freedom to wander about the neighborhood without fear of losing their table. For our staff, NoshList provides an element of organization which allows them to spend less time managing our waitlist and more time assisting coworkers to clear a table or deliver drinks; things that can help us to deliver a better experience overall.Allyson Jossel Owner - Nopalito Restaurant Group (3 locations)
