These awards reflect the combined opinions of more than 500,000 restaurant reviews submitted by verified OpenTable diners for more than 2,000 restaurants across Canada.

Including establishments with multiple locations1, Ontario has the greatest number of restaurants included on the list with 55, followed by Alberta with 17, and British Columbia and Québec each with 14 restaurants. Newfoundland and Labrador is also represented on the list.

For the second year in a row, Italian restaurants proved to be the most popular among diners. French and Canadian cuisine placed second and third, respectively, while restaurants specializing in Japanese, Mediterranean and Contemporary American cuisines also ranked in the top 100.

The 100 Best Restaurants in Canada list is generated solely from more than 500,000 restaurant reviews collected between Nov. 1, 2016, and Oct. 31. All restaurants with a minimum “overall” score and 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.
