The 100 Most Romantic list features restaurants from 46 cities across nine provinces. Ontario is the province with the most restaurants with 40 establishments, followed by Alberta with 20, British Columbia with 14 and Quebec with 13. Rounding out the list are restaurants from Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, New Brunswick and Newfoundland. The Niagara region rules in romance with 12 of Canada's most romantic restaurants, reinforcing its reputation as the honeymoon capital of the world.

The list includes celebrated romantic spots such as Seasons in the Park with its stunning panoramic view of Vancouver's skyline, Montreal's French classic Restaurant Le Continental and the charming Inn on the Twenty.

In addition to ambiance, Canadians also favour particular cuisines for their romantic dinners. Steakhouses and Italian restaurants were our top choices while Canadian, Continental and French cuisines were also popular.

"From coast to coast, Canada has endless romantic dining options," said Caroline Potter, Chief Dining Officer, OpenTable. "This year's list is the ideal guide for those looking to spark connection on Valentine's Day and beyond, featuring an array of restaurants that offer memorable experiences, from casual to fine dining."

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.
