If you’re looking to treat your sweetheart to a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner it seems you should make a reservation in Calgary.
The southern Alberta city is number one on a list of Canada’s most romantic dining destinations, according to OpenTable.
The online restaurant reservation site said the list, released on Wednesday, was compiled using three variables: the percentage of restaurants rated as “romantic” according to diner reviews; the percentage of tables seated for two; and the percentage of people who dined out for Valentine’s Day in 2018.
