OpenTable is hoping to help Canadians plan the perfect Valentine’s Day date with the release of its annual list of the 100 most romantic restaurants across the country, including 15 in Calgary.
“Planning the perfect Valentine’s Day can be stressful, so we’ve rounded up the most romantic dining options from coast to coast,” Matt Davis of OpenTable Canada said. “We’re alleviating the pressure of finding the right romantic restaurant and leaving it to diners to take it from there.”
The list from the online restaurant reservation site, released on Monday, was compiled using information from more than 500,000 reviews for more than 3,000 restaurants submitted by verified users between Dec. 1, 2018 and Nov. 30, 2019.
The list features restaurants from 31 cities across seven provinces. Ontario topped the list with 46 establishments, followed by Alberta with 21.
While steakhouses and Italian cuisine are the most popular Valentine’s Day dining spots, OpenTable said this year’s list reflects Canada’s “culinary diversity and flare.”
For those looking to spark romance, Calgary restaurants featured on the list include:
- Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant
- Bridgette Bar
- Deane House
- Hy’s Steakhouse
- The Keg Steakhouse + Bar
- The Lake House
- Model Milk
- The Nash
- Ruth’s Chris Steak House
- Teatro Restaurant
- Ten Foot Henry
- Vero Bistro Moderne
- Vintage Chophouse & Tavern
