With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we are pleased to announce the 100 Most Romantic Restaurants in Canada for 2017. 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.

Most Romantic Restaurants in Canada

This year’s list highlights the most romantic restaurants spanning nine provinces across the country from the intimate and artful Bishop’s in Vancouver to historic gem The Press Gang in Halifax and the chic Tzin Wine & Tapas in Edmonton (pictured above). Including restaurants with multiple locations, Ontario boasts the greatest number of restaurants featured on the list with 46 establishments, followed by Alberta with 27, Québec with 12, British Columbia with 12, Nova Scotia with four, and Manitoba with three. The list also includes restaurant destinations from New Brunswick, Newfoundland, and Labrador, as well as Saskatchewan.

In addition to announcing the 100 Most Romantic Restaurants in Canada, OpenTable today released data that reveals how Canadians make reservations and dine on Valentine’s Day. These findings are based on reservations made for February 14, 2016, in Canada through OpenTable.

OpenTable Canada Valentine’s Day Findings:

  • Last year, 45 per cent of Canadian diners waited until the week before Valentine’s Day to make their reservations.
  • Mobile bookings continue to rise, as 42 per cent of Valentine’s Day reservations made last year in Canada were booked using mobile devices — an eight per cent increase from the previous year.
  • Italian cuisine proved to be the most popular when choosing a restaurant to dine at for Valentine’s Day last year, followed by Steakhouses, Canadian cuisine, Seafood and French cuisine.

The list of the 100 Most Romantic Restaurants in Canada is generated solely from more than 480,000 restaurant reviews collected from verified OpenTable diners between December 1, 2015, and November 30, 2016. All restaurants with a minimum “overall” score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the percentage of reviews for which “romantic” was selected as a special feature.
