Featuring restaurants that offer some of Canada's most stunning views and dining experiences, the complete list includes winners from picturesque regions such as Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont., Stanley Park, B.C., and Banff, Alta.Ontario leads all provinces with 41 winning restaurants, followed by British Columbia with 29, Alberta with 17 and Quebec with 12.

"The honourees on our inaugural Top 100 Best Outdoor Dining list showcase the incredible diversity of our nation's restaurants and the great patios they have to offer," said Bryan Huehn, OpenTable Country Manager for Canada. "Most Canadians can only enjoy outdoor dining for a few months out of the year, and summer is a very popular dining season for us as locals and tourists take advantage of our vibrant outdoor ambience, from the lush surroundings of Stanley Park to the charming elegance of Niagara-on-the-Lake."

The Top 100 Best Outdoor Dining Restaurants in Canada are generated from more than 275,000 restaurant reviews collected from verified OpenTable diners between May 1, 2014, and April 30, 2015. All restaurants with a minimum number of qualifying reviews and "overall" rating 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 Top 100 Best Outdoor Dining Restaurants in Canada according to OpenTable diners. The complete list may also be viewed at
