Highlighting restaurants set against dramatic urban backdrops to those located along breathtaking waterfronts, the complete list features winning restaurants in 34 states and includes Duke's in Malibu, The Rainbow Room in New York, and Seven Glaciers in Girdwood, Alaska. The coastal state of California earned nearly one quarter of winning restaurants with 24, followed by Washington with 10, and Florida with seven. Michigan, Nevada, and New York boast four honorees apiece. Arizona, Georgia, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas , and Virginia have three each. Maryland, Missouri, Ohio, South Carolina, and Utah all claim two honorees. Alaska, Alabama, Colorado, Hawaii, Iowa, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Utah, and Wisconsin are also represented.

American fare restaurants were most common on the list, but seafood also proved popular. International menus, such as Asian, global, Latin American, and Peruvian are present as well as diner favorites French, Italian, and steakhouse cuisines.

"Whether they're perched atop a city skyscraper or nestled on a mountainside, this year's winning restaurants provide awe-inspiring views that showcase all the beauty of their surroundings for locals and travelers seeking a front-row seat to a city's natural or manmade splendors," said Caroline Potter, OpenTable Chief Dining Officer. "A dining experience at any of these honorees is the most delicious way to get a true sense of place when vacationing or exploring your own hometown."

The 100 Most Scenic Restaurants in America list is generated from more than 5 million restaurant reviews submitted by verified OpenTable diners between July 1, 2015, and May 31, 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 qualifying reviews for which "great for outdoor dining" was selected as a special feature.

Based on this methodology, the following restaurants, listed in alphabetical order, comprise the 100 Most Scenic Restaurants in America according to OpenTable diners. The complete list may also be viewed at
