OpenTable is one of the premier online destinations for foodies to share their opinion and create restaurant reviews regarding an array of dining establishments.
Restaurants including diners, food trucks, family-friendly establishments, and five-star white glove service establishments are reviewed and rated on the site. However, the appeal of the site extends far beyond foodies and also includes members of the general public who are simply attempting to narrow down their choices for a fun and enjoyable place to dine.
Unfortunately, certain reviewers attempt to take advantage of the OpenTable platform to serve their own ends. In other cases, rival business owners may exploit the platform to benefit their business at the expense of your own. Business owners know that online reviews can significantly affect their business and bottom-line. Therefore, allowing others to post false and negative reviews about your establishment cannot go unaddressed.
One option you may have to handle false and defamatory reviews is to get the restaurant reviews removed so that potential customers never see them. However, getting fake reviews removed can be a complex process.

OpenTable presents issues for business owners who are attacked unfairly by anonymous reviewers. Unfortunately, OpenTable site policies allow a reviewer to remain anonymous unless the reviewer chooses to identify him or herself. Unfortunately, this sense of anonymity can lead reviewers to take certain liberties with their reviews that can unfairly impact a business.
Thankfully, OpenTable is willing to remove reviews under certain circumstances. However, you must be able to prove that the content meets the criteria for removal. Working with an experienced Internet defamation removal attorney can help you gather and submit the evidence you need to remove a post swiftly. Situations where a removal may be appropriate include:
The above represents only a selection of the reasons why you may be able to get a false or defamatory restaurant review removed from OpenTable. There are a number of other reasons that can potentially justify a removal that can be discussed in a private consultation with an experienced attorney.
