People often go to restaurants without a prior reservation or an advance phone call to check if there is a table available for their party. If the restaurant happens to be full and cannot accommodate the group, people typically search for nearby restaurants and select another restaurant to try. This disclosure describes enhancements to map applications that integrate dynamically updated information on seating availability at restaurants. With permission from the users, the seating availability information is used to provide dynamically updated seating availability information for restaurants and recommendations for other suitable options.
