Cautionary Note re Open Table
Open Table is a terrific website for making restaurant reservations. One cautionary note: If you have an existing reservation but need to change the date (for example, if you realize your existing reservation is going to deprive you of being able to watch a World Series game and have the great pleasure to listen to and truly learn from John Shmolz's fascinating, insightful, and brilliant commentary), if you use the "modify" function and do not get a confirmatory email within 30 seconds or so, even if the website says "confirmed," don't believe it. You're better off canceling your existing reservation and making a new one.
