San Antonio
San Antonio, Texas, tops the list of most romantic cities for the second year in a row.

As we anticipate the romance of Valentine’s Day, we are pleased to release its rankings of the Top 25 Most Romantic Cities in America.

While our nation is known for its diverse food culture, our analysis revealed that romance is a popular dining trend in cities across America.  In order to provide a ranking of cities where romantic dining is inherently part of the culture, the OpenTable Most Romantic Cities Index was calculated using three variables: the percentage of restaurants rated “romantic” according to OpenTable diner reviews; the percentage of tables seated for two; and the percentage of people who dined out for Valentine’s Day last year.

The following cities, listed in order, comprise the Top 25 Most Romantic Cities in America. The complete list may also be viewed here.
