See a restaurant you like on Foursquare? Instead of adding it to your to-do list, you can now make a reservation directly in the app.

Foursquare has partnered with OpenTable to provide the service. It won't work with every restaurant -- just the 25,000 that allow online booking through OpenTable. Qualifying restaurants will have a "Make Reservation" button on their Foursquare pages.

The experience is seamless. Other integrations with OpenTable, like Stamped's, don't allow for in-app booking, instead sending you to in your mobile browser to make a reservation.

Foursquare will presumably receive a small commission for every booking made through its app. It opens up a new revenue stream for the not-yet-profitable startup, which until now has relied primarily on advertising for income. Foursquare could not immediately be reached for comment.
