Covid-19 update

Updated September 18

Dublin has been placed on level 3 lockdown for 3 weeks – what happens to my First Table booking?

Dublin moves into Level 3 lockdown from midnight tonight. This means restaurants and pubs must close for indoor dining so First Table won't be operating during this time. 

If you have an upcoming booking at one of our partner restaurants, we’ll be providing a full refund as a credit on your First Table account to be used at a later date. Our support team are busy working through this process.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us on

First Table restaurants in Cork and Limerick are still showing as ‘closed temporarily’. When will they become available to book?

Our team is working round the clock to update First Table availability for our partner restaurants. Our availability is likely to be limited as venues work through their Covid-19 recovery but we will keep you updated as and when we have more venues listing their tables.

How is First Table helping restaurants in the Covid-19 recovery?

Restaurateurs are asking us to promote their restaurant to as many people as we can as they want local foodies to know they’re open. First Table has always been a great way for our partner restaurants to attract new customers and build an atmosphere from the beginning of the night and we're pumped and ready to get people dining out at restaurants again.

There’s going to be an initial surge of people dining out to support their favourite eateries but as we saw in the takeaway space, the initial surge slows down. With this in mind, restaurant owners are looking for ways to promote their menus and our large audience is the perfect way for them to reach a wider audience of foodies.

Once you’re there, you can help local restaurants by exploring more of the menu and asking your server which drinks (drinks are full price) they recommend to complement your chosen dishes.

Our team is working round the clock to talk to owners about their reopening plans. Our availability is likely to be limited but we will keep you updated as and when we have venues listing their tables. Rest assured that only those restaurants that are ready and willing to offer First Table will appear with availability. Some restaurants will remain on hold as they work through their reopening plans.
