OpenTable Reveals Top 25 Most Romantic Cities in America

As we prepare to celebrate love and loved ones on  Valentine’s Day, we are over the moon to fete the 25 Most Romantic Cities in America.

It’s no secret that America has become a country of foodies, but our unique analysis has revealed that we’re also a nation of hungry romantics. 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 at
