Three Los Angeles County restaurants were featured on a recent list of the "50 Best Restaurants for a Date in America for 2019," a collection compiled by restaurant reservation service OpenTable.
The list, announced Tuesday, was created after an analysis of over 12 million online reviews, collected between Sept. 1, 2018 and Aug. 31, 2019, for more than 30,000 restaurants, according to the OpenTable website. Restaurants with a sufficient review score and number of reviews were eligible to be on the list, but the 50 selected for the final lineup had the highest ratio of "GoodForDates" or "Good for a Date" tags to total reviews.

"Given the added stress daters face when looking for the right restaurant, we wanted to create a go-to list that offers a restaurant for any date — whether it’s your first or one-thousandth," said Anna Besse, Director of Marketing at OpenTable in a news release.
