Just in time to ring in a new year of dining, we’re excited to reveal the 100 Best Restaurants in Canada 2016. These awards reflect the combined opinions of more than 480,000 restaurant reviews submitted by verified OpenTable diners for more than 1,900 restaurants in Canada.

Restaurants serving Japanese, Contemporary American, Spanish, and Mediterranean cuisines also ranked in the Top 100.
