October 23, 2013

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As the grape harvest continues at the nation's vineyards, OpenTable (NASDAQ: OPEN), the world's leading provider of online restaurant reservations, is pleased to announce the 2013 Diners' Choice Award winners for the Top 100 Restaurants with the Most Notable Wine Lists. These awards reflect the combined opinions of more than 5 million reviews submitted by verified OpenTable diners for more than 15,000 restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.


Featuring talented sommeliers and lists to impress any oenophile, the winners span 27 states and include Canlis in Seattle, The French Laundry in Yountville, California, and Veritas in New York City. Home to the nation's most renowned vineyards, California accounts for 21 honorees, followed by Maryland with eight winners and Florida, New York, Ohio, Virginia, and Washington with five apiece. Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas restaurants each boast four winning restaurants. Michigan and Nevada both claim three winners. Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New Jersey, Oregon, and Tennessee each have two winning restaurants. Arizona, Delaware, Iowa, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin restaurants are also represented. American fare restaurants had the greatest number of winners, followed by those serving Italian and tapas/small plate cuisines.

"The fabulous food is only half the excitement at these award-winning restaurants," says Caroline Potter, OpenTable Chief Dining Officer. "Under the guidance of sommeliers, these expansive and unique wine lists span adventure, education and value. You're guaranteed to find a perfect pairing at any of these standouts."

The Diners' Choice Awards for the Top 100 Wine Lists in the U.S. are generated from more than 5 million reviews collected from verified OpenTable diners between October 1, 2012, and September 30, 2013.  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 "notable wine list" was selected as a special feature.

Based on this methodology, the following restaurants, listed in alphabetical order, comprise the Top 100 Wine Lists in the U.S. according to OpenTable diners.  The complete list may also be viewed at
