OpenTable Diner Reviews Reveal Top 100 Wine Lists









SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As the time to toast the holidays draws near, OpenTable (NASDAQ: OPEN), a leading provider of free, real-time online restaurant reservations for diners and reservation and guest management solutions for restaurants, is pleased to announce the 2012 Diners' Choice Award winners for the Top 100 Restaurants with the Most Notable Wine Lists in the United States.  These awards reflect the combined opinions of more than 5 million reviews submitted by verified OpenTable diners for more than 15,000 restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

The list of winners, which includes Frasca Food and Wine in Boulder, RN74 in Seattle, and Veritas in New York, spans 25 states and Washington, D.C.  California, renowned for its wine country, has the greatest number of winners with 17, followed by Maryland with nine winners and Washington with eight. Florida and New York boast six winning restaurants apiece, trailed by Texas and Virginia with five honorees, Colorado and South Carolina with four, and Illinois, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, and Pennsylvania with three each. The states of Connecticut, Denver, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, and Tennessee all have two award winners. Washington, D.C. earned a single spot as did Arizona, Kansas, and Wisconsin. Restaurants serving American fare dominated the list; however, a variety of cuisines are represented, including French, Italian, Spanish, and tapas.

"These winning restaurants understand that the right sip brings out the best in every bite," said Caroline Potter, OpenTable Chief Dining Officer. "Each honoree has created thoughtful wine lists that go beyond merely complimenting their dishes. The offerings manage to educate and excite diners at different price points so that discovering a new wine or revisiting a familiar varietal is accessible to virtually every guest."

The Diners' Choice Awards for the Top 100 Wine Lists are generated from more than 5 million reviews collected from verified OpenTable diners between October 1, 2011 and September 30, 2012.  All restaurants with a minimum number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the percentage of qualifying reviews for which "Notable Wine List" was selected as a special feature.

Based on this methodology, the following restaurants, listed in alphabetical order, comprise the Top 100 Wine Lists in the U.S. according to OpenTable diners.  The complete list may also be viewed at http://www.opentable.com/wine.
