OpenTable has generated more than 15 million restaurant reviews by "verified diners," the company announced Wednesday.
Launched in 2008, the OpenTable Reviews program publishes a list of restaurant reviews given by the site's members; it includes thousands of eateries across the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. Users can submit an online feedback form after dining at a restaurant they booked through OpenTable.

The company emphasizes that only diners who have honored an OpenTable reservation are invited to provide a review.
"Only reviews by verified diners are published," spokesman Matt Garcia told Mashable in an email.

To mark the occasion, OpenTable is sharing an infographic, below, that illustrates its diner review trends and behaviors since the program's debut.
Recently, sites such as TripAdvisor and Yelp have experienced problems with fake reviews.
Founded in 1998, OpenTable provides free, real-time online restaurant reservations, and guest and reservation management solutions for restaurants.
