CLEVELAND -- Valentine's Day is around the corner.
And if you happen to live in Cleveland, your dining options consist of some of the premier restaurants in the country.
On Friday, OpenTable revealed its list of the 100 most romantic restaurants in the nation, which it "generated solely from diner reviews collected between December 1, 2017, and November 30, 2018." Four restaurants in the Northeast Ohio area made the cut, including:
- Chez Francois in Vermilion
- Pier W in Cleveland
- Strip Steakhouse in Avon
- The Bistro at Gervasi Vineyard in Canton
“These 100 restaurants excel at setting the table for romance and creating intimate dining experiences at every service,” said Caroline Potter, Chief Dining Officer at OpenTable. “Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day with a new special someone, a spouse or even a friend, you can count on this list to find not only a restaurant with the right ambiance but also an exceptional meal.”
Including Northeast Ohio's four selections, the state of Ohio was represented a total of nine times on the list -- the highest of any state in the country. According to OpenTable, more than 12 million verfied diner reviews of over 28,000 restaurants in 50 states helped create its list, which includes 'super club' experience and neighborhood favorites alike.
