Zagat serves funding to Foodline.com

The online restaurant reservation Web site receives an investment from Zagat Survey, a dining-information publisher.

Foodline.com, an online restaurant reservation Web site, has received an investment from Zagat Survey, a dining-information publisher, the companies said today.

For the second-consecutive week, Foodline has received an investment from a large firm. Last week, the company said American Express had taken a stake in it. The amount of both investments were undisclosed.

Companies have been trying to ignite the online dining business, striking partnerships and beefing up their offerings. Food.com recently acquired Takeout Taxi, a food-delivery service, and said it will begin delivering online orders to customers' doors.

Foodline's service allows consumers to book tables at restaurants through the Internet.

Last month, the company and Zagat agreed to offer Foodline's reservation system on Zagat.com

Among Foodline's other investors are Ticketmaster Online-CitySearch and Kestrel Venture Management.
