App of the Month: Velocity

With anniversaries, birthdays, special dinners, Valentines Day, and just because dinners sometimes you want to go somewhere swanky. Velocity is the new app to use created for users to book reservations at top restaurants and pay through the app with a card on file. With so many different restaurants it can be hard to choose where to eat and if you can even get a reservation. This app is supposed to help.

Discover Section

Velocity is a free app that features over 1,000 restaurants in London, New York, Miami, and Los Angeles. About 90 of these restaurants are Michelin starred. Finding hidden gems or getting a table at your favorite restaurant is right at your finger tips with this app. With so many places to eat in these major cities this app is very useful.

More of the Discover Section

In the Discover section the app gives different categories to help in finding the place for you. Some of these categories include neighborhoods, hidden gems, hand-picked for you, date night, and decor. Once you choose a category you can choose your time frame, how many people, and type such as breakfast, dinner, etc. Once a spot interests you, it gives you more information on the establishment, pictures, average main course price, and more. There is also an option to save it to your wish list.

More info on your discovery

The app also has a search feature that allows you to find a restaurant by location, name, or type of cuisine you may be in the mood for. Once you have chosen a spot and dined you can easily pay for your bill through the app rather than wondering when the waiter is going to come back around. You can download the app here.

    This is brilliant! We’re always seeking new restaurants, so we’re going to have to try this one next time we’re going in one of those cities! Thanks for the recommendation!

    This looks like a useful app. I’ll have to remember it when I travel to the four cities where it operates. I am not currently in one of those cities.

    Interesting. I haven’t used this app because I haven’t been in the cities where it is available recently. I think I’d feel funny just paying through the app and getting up to leave, though. How the restaurant know you paid?

      If they expand it would be even better. I am sure they know you are using the app from the reservation.

      Agreed, you can do everything on that one app. They just need to expand to some other cities.

    It’s an interesting idea, I wonder if they will include additional cities in the future. I like that you can target the lesser known hidden gems when you visit each city.

    That’s a very useful app of you are in this sort of restaurants! Normally, all the restaurant apps show you a lot of crap! So it’s good to know that there’s an app that only shows the best of the best! Does it work in Spain?

    Reply
    • Holly Dayz

      Yes, this one certainly makes sure to show the best of the best. Not in Spain, but hopefully they expand their cities soon.

    Sounds like a really practical and useful app – it’s so overwhelming trying to figure out where the best places are to eat when you’re in a new city, so I love that this helps filter, and has everything accessible in the one place 🙂

      You are right. It has some great filters.
