CNET News Video: Last-minute dinner reservations

1:03 /

All right, procrastinators: If you haven't made your Valentine's Day dinner reservations, don't despair. Technically, you still have time. CNET's Kara Tsuboi is here to save the day -- or at least your love life -- in this Tech Minute.

The website and app OpenTable is really the gold standard for restaurant reservations. It's so easy to search for an available table-based on location or neighborhood, price and desired time. You can filter your results even further by type of restaurant like romantic or special occasion and type of cuisine. Once you find a spot that fits your criteria, OpenTable automatically book your reservation and send you a confirmation e-mail. If it's too late for a reservation and you'd rather just walk in, check out the free app NoWait. It lists nearby restaurants and the estimated wait time to get a table. Add your name to the wait list directly from your smartphone. Finally, if you're looking for a last minute res and a good deal, check out the website Savored, brought to us by the folks at Groupon. Once you select your city, you can search for an available table that night or in the near future. Each free reservation comes with a savings of 20 to 40 percent of your total bill. Hey, sometimes it pays to procrastinate. In San Francisco, I'm Kara Tsuboi, CNET.com for CBS News.
