Tampa named a top romantic city in U.S.

Online reservations company OpenTable released its rankings of the Top 25 Most Romantic Cities in the U.S. They calculated the results by looking at the percentage of romantic restaurant ratings from reviews, percentage of tables for two, and how many people dined out on Valentine's Day 2012.


"Just as every diner has a different idea of what makes a meal romantic, each of these cities has a diverse dining culture," said Caroline Potter, Chief Dining Officer of OpenTable, in a press release. "The commonality lies in the proportion of diners seeking a romantic dining experience — and the number of area restaurants providing just that. If you're looking for love, you just might find it in any of these locales."


The Top 10 most romantic dinner destinations in Tampa, as voted on by diners, included Ciro's, Armani's, Donatello, The View at CK's, Six Tables Tampa, Mise en Place, Il Terrazzo, Aqua, and both Grille One Sixteen locations.


San Antonio and Austin, Texas, came in at numbers one and two on the list.
