Featuring restaurants coast-to-coast across 33 states, the list is a comprehensive look at the most romantic restaurants in the country, culled from more than 12 million verified diner reviews of over 28,000 restaurants in 50 states and Washington, D.C. From the luxurious Majorelle in New York City, to the supper club experience at Nocturne in Denver, to neighborhood favorite St. Martin’s Wine Bistro in Dallas, the Most Romantic Restaurants list has a wide variety of spots that’ll set the mood for the special occasion.

With nine restaurants on the list, Ohio is the most recognized state, followed by Texas with eight, and North Carolina and Virginia with seven each. Pennsylvania boasts six winning restaurants, New York has five and California, Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, Nevada and Tennessee each claim four winners. While American cuisine dominates the list, a number of other fares are featured, such as French, Italian, Latin, Seafood and Southern — all perfect for a romantic evening out with your valentine.

“These 100 restaurants excel at setting the table for romance and creating intimate dining experiences at every service,” said Caroline Potter, Chief Dining Officer at OpenTable. “Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day with a new special someone, a spouse or even a friend, you can count on this list to find not only a restaurant with the right ambiance but also an exceptional meal.”

OpenTable’s 100 Most Romantic Restaurants in America for 2019 list is generated solely from diner reviews collected between December 1, 2017, and November 30, 2018. All restaurants with a minimum “overall” score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. The overall score is made up of unique data points, such as overall diner rating, user clout, total number of reviews and regional overall rating. Qualifying restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the percentage of reviews for which “romantic” was selected as a special feature.
