Everyone knows that the best way to pamper mom on Mother's Day is to take her to a nice restaurant.

Of course, your Mom learned long ago not to leave her big day to chance. This year, 65 percent of moms say they will be in charge of booking their own dining reservations, according to a recent survey by OpenTable, Inc., an online restaurant reservations website.

No matter who is making the reservations, you'll want to place them soon, as Mother's Day is the busiest dining day of the year.
