As we look forward to all the romance that Valentine’s Day brings, we’re pleased to release our rankings of the 25 Most Romantic Cities in America 2017.

Food trends may come and go, but our data indicates that Americans continue to have an appetite for romantic dining. 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 in 2016.

The following cities, listed in order, comprise the 25 Most Romantic Cities in America 2017.
