Vancouver has a new website offering deep discounts on dinner out

Trust us when we say that we were skeptical about First Table when we first read the press release about it. But, this website is offering 50% off meals for diners is the real deal. Let’s take a closer look at it, shall we?

Like the popular HotelTonight app, First Table relies on participating restaurants to offer specific times for the coveted ‘First Table’ spot and half off their meal. Unlike HotelTonight, First Table operates as far as a week in advance, so you don’t have to panic if one evening doesn’t work.

In order to offset the deep discounts being offered, First Table requires a $10 booking fee. However, if you sign up by November 30, you’ll receive a $5 credit off your first booking (code: FIRSTTABLECA). If you’ve got a table of four dining, you’re practically saving $50-$75 minimum for $5. We like that trade-off.

Having first started in New Zealand in 2014, First Table has chosen Vancouver as its launching point for the North American market. So far, they’ve got 22 restaurants as part of their inaugural list, with more slated to join in the near future.

Some of our favourite spots, including Nicli, Sprezzatura and Fable Diner are on the list, so we’re giving this brand new service an early thumbs up.

You can learn more about this new dining option by visiting their website.

Correction: Curiocity has been informed that the First Table service is only available via their website, not through an app (yet). Apologies for any confusion.
