Local food lovers can get the first crack at exclusive dining experiences across the city when the international online dining site known as First Table makes its North American debut in Vancouver on today Thursday, November 14.
We got to seat down last night and to be one of the first to try First Table at The Greek by Anatoli in Yaletown.
The concept of First Table is simple. It is a restaurant discovery platform that first launched in New Zealand in 2014, First Table connects diners around the world with local restaurants that offer its members 50% off the food bill at specified times. Every week, participating Vancouver restaurants will list their ‘first tables’ for the upcoming seven days on the First Table website, allowing diners who pay a $10 booking fee to secure a table at the restaurant of their choice and 50% off the food bill for two to four people.
First Table Promo Code
To celebrate its North American debut, First Table is offering new members a $5 credit towards their first booking fee when registering at firsttable.com/ca/vancouver/ by November 30 using the promo code FIRSTTABLECA.
