iPad Reservations


This page walks you through how to use your TouchBistro POS reservations option. If you are using TouchBistro Reservations, see this page for relevant documentation.

You may be given access to TouchBistro POS’s reservations system. If you need to book a reservation, you can use the Reservations option.

If you access the Reservations screen and see a notification that TouchBistro is integrated with TouchBistro Reservations, you need to take and manage reservations through the TouchBistro Reservation app.

Currently, TouchBistro does not integrate with any other reservation system.
