OpenTable Diner Reviews Reveal the 100 Best Restaurants in Canada 2018 #OpenTable100

Best Restaurants in Canada 2018

Celebrating Canada’s rich culinary offerings, we’re thrilled to reveal the 100 Best Restaurants in Canada 2018, according to OpenTable diners. The list is a comprehensive look at the year’s most beloved dining spots culled from more than 500,000 verified diner reviews of over 2,500 restaurants across Canada over the course of 12 delicious months.

From the locavore specialties of the restaurant at Pearl Morissette in Niagara, the notable contemporary French cuisine of La Banane in Toronto, and the eclectic seafood stop Oddfish in Vancouver, this year’s list showcases OpenTable’s comprehensive network of dining options for every occasion across the country. Featured restaurants have been recognized for consistently putting out delicious dishes, providing impeccable service, and paying attention to every detail to orchestrate one-of-a-kind dining experiences time and again. Ontario has the greatest number of restaurants included on the list with 57, followed by Alberta with 21, British Columbia with 13, and Québec with seven restaurants. Newfoundland and Saskatchewan are also represented on the list.

So how exactly does a restaurant land on this list? The list is generated solely from diner reviews collected between November 1, 2017, and October 31, 2018. All restaurants with a minimum “overall” score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then sorted according to a score calculated from each restaurant’s average rating in the “overall” category. That overall category score is made up of unique data points (read: our secret sauce), such as overall diner rating, user klout, total number of reviews, and regional overall rating to arrive at…ta-da, the final list! It’s a mouthful, we know, but would you expect anything less from a list that’s all about the best restaurants in the country?
