"These best overall restaurants are consistently getting it right on every level, from top flight ambiance and service to cocktail lists and menus that positively dazzle diners."
The Diners' Choice Awards for the Top 100 Best Restaurants in the U.S. are generated from more than 5 million reviews collected from verified OpenTable diners between December 1, 2011 and November 30, 2012. All restaurants with a minimum number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then sorted according to a score calculated from each restaurant's average rating in the "overall" category along with that restaurant's rating relative to others in the same metropolitan area and the average number of restaurants reviewed by diners who reviewed that restaurant.
Based on this methodology, the following restaurants, listed in alphabetical order, comprise the Top 100 Best Restaurants in the U.S. according to OpenTable diners. The complete list may also be viewed at http://www.opentable.com/bestoverall.
