Enjoy L.A. County’s Best Views!

Diners looking to enjoy astonishing scenery as they feast – from wooded overlooks to twinkling skylines and everything in between – need look no further than OpenTable, the world’s leading provider of online restaurant reservations, which released its 100 Most Scenic Restaurants in America list. Of the restaurants featured on the list, seven are located in Los Angeles County, offering the perfect backdrop for any occasion.  

In general, California remains on top this year with 28 restaurants among the honorees, followed by Florida with 13 winners and New York with seven. Spanning east to west from Rhode Island to Oregon and north to south from Wisconsin to Texas, 24 additional states are among those represented.

The complete list represents a diverse mix of menus for all palates, including Asian, French, Italian, Latin, Mediterranean and more.

“We know a memorable meal is as much about the ambiance as it is about the food,” said Caroline Potter, OpenTable’s Chief Dining Officer. “This year’s list represents an immense variety of restaurants that not only offer an exceptional meal but also feature breathtaking views that enhance the experience for locals and travelers alike.”

The 100 Most Scenic Restaurants list for 2018 list is generated solely from more than 12 million verified OpenTable diner reviews for more than 28,000 restaurants in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. collected between June 1, 2017 and May 31, 2018. All restaurants with a minimum “overall” score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the percentage of qualifying reviews for which “scenic views” was selected as a special feature.
