OpenTable Reveals Top 25 Most Romantic Cities In The U.S.

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With Valentine's Day almost a week away, OpenTable (NASDAQ: OPEN), the world's leading provider of online restaurant reservations, is pleased to release its rankings of the 25 Most Romantic Cities in the United States.

While we may typically think of our largest cities as magnets for romance seekers, our analysis revealed that romance thrives in cities and communities of all sizes.  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. 

"Just as every diner has a different idea of what makes a meal romantic, each of these cities has a diverse dining culture," said Caroline Potter, Chief Dining Officer of OpenTable.  "The commonality lies in the proportion of diners seeking a romantic dining experience - and the number of area restaurants providing just that.  If you're looking for love, you just might find it in any of these locales."

The following cities, listed in order, comprise the Top 25 Most Romantic Cities in the U.S. The complete list may also be viewed at http://www.opentable.com/RomanticCities.
