In just four months, 30,000 of the estimated 150,000 Twin Cities online restaurant monthly bookings have switched from OpenTable to Eveve, topping off a successful US introduction of the European-based reservation system.

Timothy Ryan, Director and President of U.S. operations, announced today that three more critically acclaimed restaurants –Barrio Minneapolis, Barrio St. Paul, and Cocina del Barrio—have joined the growing list of other heavy hitters who left OpenTable for Eveve’s more affordable reservation system.

“We feel very fortunate to announce our partnership with Barrio,” explained Ryan, “not only because they are three of the most highly-regarded restaurants in the Midwest, but also because the founders, Ryan Burnet and Tim Rooney, did extensive research before making the switch. There are several alternatives out there, and the fact that they, along with Meritage, Hell’s Kitchen, and Bar LaGrassa -- chose Eveve further proves that restaurants of all sizes trust our software to take care of customer reservations while significantly cutting overhead.” Hell’s Kitchen and Bar LaGrassa were OpenTable’s top 2 “most booked” establishments, while Meritage represents St. Paul’s most high-awarded restaurant.

“At this point, we’re handling 30,000 of the estimated 150,000 monthly total online reservations in the Twin Cities,” continued Ryan, "which is notable because in this test market, we’ve already met and exceeded our most optimistic expectations, validating research that shows a huge market of restaurateurs have been waiting for an affordable alternative.”

Eveve’s cutting-edge technology, which uses cloud-based solutions, makes it easier for restaurants such as Barrio to take advantage of critically important new mobile technologies. “As restaurants start to look into mobile websites, they realize our system will be much easier to integrate” said Ryan, “and I think that’s another reason we’re fielding calls from all over the country. Restaurant owners not only have to cut costs, but stay on top of technology at the same time, and the fact that Eveve offers both has contributed to our careful but rapid growth.”

Established in 1997, EVEVE is a leading global supplier of live reservation systems and has relationships with approximately 1,000 restaurants worldwide.
