I use OpenTable to make my reservations as often as possible. I've used it for restaurants in Philly, New York, Wilmington, DC, and Las Vegas as well as Maryland. It's easy (online!), fast, and if you keep your reservation (as you should), you get reward points that can be redeemed for dining cheques, accepted at all Open Table restaurants in the US, UK, and Canada. I'm thisclose to a $50 cheque. :)
OpenTable is currently promoting an Appetite Stimulus Plan in participating restaurants from November 17 - 21. Kinda like a new restaurant week! Info below, plus a link to participating dining establishments in Maryland.

With The OpenTable Appetite Stimulus Plan, you'll enjoy not only specially priced, three-course menus at top restaurants, but you'll also earn double Dining Rewards Points when you book through OpenTable. That's 200 Dining Rewards Points for every Appetite Stimulus Plan reservation that you honor!
