Capital One is known for its unique partnerships that bring savings to its card holders — it’s offered discounts on Spotify Premium for those with the Capital One Quicksilver Rewards Credit Card, and the new Capital One Savor Cash Rewards Credit Card waives delivery fees on Postmates orders. The information for the Capital One Savor Cash Rewards Credit Card has been collected independently by The Points Guy. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.

Capital One has announced an expansion of its partnerships, this time with the restaurant reservation service Resy. Starting today, Capital One card holders will have access to exclusive restaurant reservations at a handful of popular restaurants in Austin, New York and Washington, D.C., all on the busiest nights of the week.

From Feb. 1 to July 31, those eligible can book exclusive tables for two on popular nights at the following restaurants:

  • Austin: Kemuri Tatsu-ya, Odd Duck, Pitchfork Pretty and She’s Not Here
  • New York City: Charlie Bird, Frankies 457, Legacy Records, Loring Place, Pasquale Jones and Quality
    Eats (two locations)
  • Washington DC: A Rake’s Progress, All Purpose (two locations), Masseria and Red Hen

Capital One tells TPG that the restaurants will hold two tables exclusively for its card holders on those weekend nights. While it’s not a whole lot of space, it can definitely help you get a guaranteed spot at one of these trendy eateries and forgo a long wait at the front of the house on a busy Friday night.

Restaurant Week fanatics can rejoice too — Capital One card holders will have advanced access to Off-Menu Week reservations in major cities across the US. Never heard of of Off-Menu week? Neither have we, but Capital One describes it as something similar to the famed Restaurant Week (sans the prix fixe menus):

“For one week only, iconic eateries and neighborhood mainstays in six of the country’s best dining cities are skipping the prix fixe format in lieu of experimenting with creative new dishes, special ingredients and off-menu hits.”

Capital One card holders will be able to book up tables for the special events up to 72 hours before the general public.

The schedules for Off-Menu Week and advanced access to reservations are as follows:

  • Los Angeles Restaurant Week: Monday, Feb. 25, 2019 to Sunday, March 3, 2019
    • Reservations live for Capital One card holders 1/24/19, reservations live to public 1/28/18

Bottom Line

While it might not be the most groundbreaking or money-saving perk, it’s still great to see Capital One adding more benefits to its products, especially since this is open to all of its card members. It’s just another cherry on top of its newly revamped program for miles-earning cards, which recently saw the addition of 15 airline transfer partners.
