Evaluation Methodology

Tablz employs a methodology that integrates the scrutiny of online reservation trends with an in-depth assessment of table variety, to quantify the upgrade value of our partners' dining real estate.
Our ratings are specifically designed to quantify the upgrade value of our partners' dining real estate. They are not intended to serve as indicators of profitability, desirability, or dining quality for our partner establishments.
For instance, our evaluation criteria might result in a Michelin-starred restaurant scoring lower than a local burger joint. Similarly, a property with low online demand could still be consistently full due to walk-in patrons.
