What characteristics of the restaurant market make it difficult for a reservation system to work?
The restaurant industry was slow to leverage the power of Internet. This was in part because the industry was and continues to be highly fragmented and local.That would make it hard to deal with these restaurants as a single market.
Need real time access and instant booking
Large scale and scope - need to participating restaurants in different cities.
Updates are automated; 
Whenever there is an update it is available online to existing customers, often free of charge.
Accessible from any location;
  Rather than being restricted to installations on individual computers, an application can be accessed from anywhere with an internet enabled device.
Cross device compatibility; 
SaaS applications can be accessed via any internet enabled device, which makes it ideal for those who use a number of different devices
