Restaurant patios across the country are featured on this year's list, with Ontario claiming the greatest number of outdoor dining eateries (50), followed by British Columbia (30), Alberta (10) Manitoba (4), Quebec (5) and Nova Scotia (1).

From elegant rooftop city views at KŌST in Toronto and the gorgeous waterfront and mountain scenery at North Vancouver'sArms Reach Bistro, to the evergreen surrounded patio at the Italian Farmhouse Restaurant & Bar in Bragg Creek, this year's list features a variety of outdoor dining settings that will satisfy any patio enthusiast.

"Outdoor dining is synonymous with summer – there's no better way to soak up a city's scenery, be it urban vistas or waterfront views, than with an outdoor table at one of this year's winning restaurants," said Caroline Potter, OpenTable's Chief Dining Officer. "Diners looking to snag a prime spot can use OpenTable's Seating Options feature to find the perfect place to celebrate the season."

Canada's 100 Best Restaurants for Outdoor Dining list is generated solely from diner reviews collected between April 30, 2018 and March 31, 2019. All restaurants with a minimum "overall" score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. The overall score is made up of unique data points, such as overall diner rating, user klout, total number of reviews and regional overall rating. Qualifying restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the sum of tags for which "outdoor dining" was selected as a special feature.

Based on this methodology, the following restaurants, listed in alphabetical order, comprise the 100 Best Restaurants for Outdoor Dining in Canada for 2019 according to OpenTable diners. The complete list may also be viewed at https://www.opentable.com/lists/ca-best-outdoor-restaurants-2019.
