CINCINNATI — Love is in the air — and the food and drink, it seems — at two popular Cincinnati dining destinations, which were included in a national list of “most romantic restaurants” Tuesday.

The list, compiled by online reservation provider OpenTable, lists 100 restaurants across the country that, they say, “set the table for romance.”

Here in the Queen City, romance buds most at Orchids at Palm Court Downtown and Primavista in East Price Hill.

How did OpenTable choose their top 100? Technically, they didn’t: Their users did.

OpenTable based their selections on reviews submitted by verified OpenTable diners. The top 100 were selected out of more than 20,000 restaurants featured on the site nationwide. OpenTable sourced more than 5 million reviews from its verified users in 2015.

As of this writing, Orchids at Palm Court was holding down a 4.8-star rating with more than 1,350 reviews. Primavista was boasting a 4.7-star rating with just shy of 1,700 reviews.
