Twenty Alberta restaurants have made a list of the 100 most romantic restaurants in Canada ahead of Valentine’s Day.

The majority of the province’s romance-filled date spots highlighted by online reservation site OpenTable were in Calgary and Edmonton, however a few restaurants in some lesser-known places also made the list.

The list released on Tuesday features establishments from 46 cities across nine provinces across the country. OpenTable also names Banff, Calgary and Edmonton as three of Canada’s Top 10 romantic cities.

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