OpenTable Reveals the Top 25 Most Romantic Cities in the U.S.

San Antonio’s Riverwalk features several renowned romantic restaurants, such as Biga on the Banks.

With Valentine’s Day almost a week away, we are pleased to release our rankings of the 25 Most Romantic Cities in the United States. While we may typically think of our largest cities as magnets for romance seekers, our analysis revealed that romance thrives in cities and communities of all sizes. 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 the U.S. The complete list may also be viewed at Reading
