A romantic table at Auberge du Soleil in
Going out to dinner for Valentine’s Day? OpenTable.com has compiled a list of the nation’s most romantic restaurants as judged by users of the online reservations service.
OpenTable analyzed more than 4 million reviews from last year to build the list of 50 restaurants from coast to coast. Restaurants receiving high marks in the romance department range from steakhouses to fondue restaurants.
We’ve only been to two restaurants on this list, and give them high grades for atmosphere. One had great food, the other was just above-average for food (but we’re very picky). So, if you want both the romance and the best cuisine, ask friends.
And if you’ve dined at any of these restaurants, please give us your opinion.
