California overwhelmingly plays home to the most romantic restaurants in the country, according to the restaurant reservation site OpenTable.
Florida and Hawaii round out the top three states with the most romantic restaurants.
“These states have beautiful coastlines,” OpenTable’s chief dining officer Caroline Potter said to Business Insider. “It melts your heart to sit at one of their restaurants. They have mother nature on their side helping them woo diners. Also, California, Florida and Hawaii are popular honeymoon destinations, so people are in the mood for romance. These restaurants are treating their locations very wisely.”
OpenTable looked at over five million restaurant reviews written between January 2013 and January 2014 to determine the 100 most romantic restaurants in America. They scored restaurants according to their average rating in the “romantic” category and ranked how many diners indicated romance was a specific consideration in choosing the restaurant.
