The City of Pasadena today snuck into a list of the 25 most romantic dining cities in the U.S. at 21, according to OpenTable, a provider of online restaurant reservations.

San Antonio topped the list, followed by Austin, Texas; Providence, Rhode Island, La Jolla, California; and Columbus, Ohio. San Diego settled in at 16, and Santa Monica was placed at 24.

The OpenTable Most Romantic Cities Index was calculated using three variables: the percentage of restaurants rated “romantic” according to OpenTable diner reviews; the percentage of tables seated for two; and the percentage of people who dined out for Valentine’s Day last year.

“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.

“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,” Potter said.
