Reservation app for restaurants on a Wix site

A company wants to build an app that allows customers to see available time slots and make reservations at any restaurant on a Wix site.


The site owner must do the following:

  • Install the Table Reservations app.
  • Configure at least 1 location in the dashboard.
  • Ensure manual approval is disabled for online reservations at all locations. (It is disabled by default.)


To create an app that allows customers to make reservations at restaurants listed on a site’s business info page, follow this basic flow:

  1. Call List Reservation Locations in the Reservation Locations API to get a list of restaurant locations and present them to the customer to choose from.
  2. When the customer selects a reservation location, record its ID and direct them to a page where they can enter party size and date. Pre-fill the date with the current date, and party size with 2.
  3. When the page initially loads, and whenever the party size or date changes, use the reservation location’s ID along with the selected party size and date to call Get Time Slots in the Time Slots API. Set slotsBefore and slotsAfter to your preferred values.
  4. Using the information returned from Get Time Slots, find the start dates of time slots with the status AVAILABLE and present them for the customer to choose from.
  5. When a customer selects a time slot, call Create Held Reservation in the Reservations API with the selected reservation location ID, date, and party size.
  6. Redirect the customer to a new page where they can enter their details and confirm their request for a reservation.
  7. When the customer confirms the request, call Reserve Reservation in the Reservations API to add the additional details to the reservation and change its status to RESERVED.
  8. Notify the customer that their reservation has been approved.
