100 Most Scenic Restaurants in America

If you have ever made a restaurant reservation online, chances are you are familiar with a service called OpenTable.  If you are not familiar, this is an online resource that began in July of 1998, with its origins based in San Francisco, California.  Initially, reservations were available only for select San Fran restaurants, but the popularity of the service grew exponentially and the area served is now worldwide.  Essentially, restaurants sign up for OpenTable’s back-end software in order to process reservations made on the website. The outcome is an efficient real-time reservation structure that benefits both diners and restaurants. An additional feature of the site is the review section, where patrons can critique their experience of a restaurant.  This assists diners in making a decision about where they will eat.

Recently, using reviews posted to their site, OpenTable created a list to assist diners in locating restaurants with picturesque and inspirational views. The list is based exclusively on diner reviews, with qualifying restaurants needing to meet a required number of reviews and a minimum overall score.

Here is the list in alphabetical order, along with a few visuals.
