The 50 Best Restaurants for a Date in the United States
Here's where you should have your next date night.
Planning the perfect date can be hard, but picking the perfect restaurant can be even harder. There are so many things to consider when choosing a date night restaurant, from noise levels to atmosphere to whether or not the food will actually be good.
Dating is hard enough to begin with, and selecting the perfect dinner spot is bound to make you a little anxious. In fact, 86 percent of people find choosing the perfect date restaurant stressful, according to a study commissioned by OpenTable.
Thankfully, OpenTable took the guesswork out of finding the perfect spot to woo that special someone, ensuring you can focus on more important things, like deciding what to wear and getting to know the other person.
“Given the added stress daters face when looking for the right restaurant, we wanted to create a go-to list that offers a restaurant for any date - whether it's your first or one-thousandth," Anna Besse, the director of marketing at OpenTable, said in a statement. "And for a more personalized experience, diners can turn to our 'Date Night Matchmaker' feature for a no-fret way to find the perfect restaurant based on their specific dining preferences."
To create this year’s list, OpenTable looked at diner reviews from September 2018 to August 2019.
Whether you’re looking for a world-class view of Las Vegas at the Top of the World restaurant or comforting Italian dishes at RPM Italian in Chicago, the list, which spanned 21 states and Washington D.C., has you covered.
