Capital One is introducing an innovative new dining program for its rewards cardmembers that will begin debuting in 11 large U.S. cities. The program, in partnership with famous chef José Andrés, will offer cardmembers the opportunity to book tables at popular restaurants and receive recommendations from Andrés when they travel.

What Is Capital One Dining?

From the culinary brains of Chef José Andrés, the MICHELIN Guide, and the James Beard Foundation, Capital One Dining is a reservation booking platform, powered by SevenRooms, that offers cardmembers recommendations for dining and also opportunities to book dining.

Cardmembers will be able to review recommended restaurants in a select group of cities that are curated by famous chefs worldwide. Rather than view places in Yelp or by recommendations by companies that earn a commission or kickback, Capital One is presenting places that cardmembers will likely want to eat at.

In addition to offering a selection of restaurants to choose from, Capital One is having these restaurants reserve a specific number of tables just for cardmembers. Unlike other credit card companies that claim that they can get reservations at sold-out places but can’t, Capital One is actually delivering on this by specifically reserving seats just for cardholders.

Cardmembers will be able to book their tables within the Capital One app.

What Cities Are Part of Capital One Dining?

These cities will initially launch the Capital One Dining program:

  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Dallas
  • Denver
  • Las Vegas
  • Los Angeles
  • Miami
  • New York City
  • Philadelphia
  • San Francisco
  • Washington, D.C.

Obviously, these cities are among the largest cities in the U.S., and the ones most popular for folks to go out to eat. Capital One is starting with these 11 cities and will expand to others in the future.

Hot Tip: Similar dining programs are offered by American Express with its Global Dining Access by Resy program and Chase with its Reserved by Sapphire program via Chase Dining, powered by Tock.

What Restaurants Can You Eat At?

While the list of restaurants in each city is long and expanding, this is a sampling of restaurants that you will be able to book:

  • Chicago — BOKA, HaiSous, Maple & Ash
  • New York City — Cote, Iris, Wallsé
  • San Francisco — Benu, Quince, Routier
  • Washington, D.C. — Anju, Gravitas, minibar by José Andrés

Final Thoughts

If Capital One can deliver on its new dining program, it will be of extreme value to cardholders as many other credit card companies cannot deliver on reserving seats at popular restaurants. Capital One hopes to not only book tables, but also provide culinary recommendations beyond what a normal search engine search can provide, elevating the experience for Capital One members.
