SAN FRANCISCO, May 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As we look forward to an exciting season of summer travel, OpenTable (NASDAQ: OPEN), the world's leading provider of online restaurant reservations, is pleased to honor the 2014 Diners' Choice Award winners for the Top 100 Best Outdoor Dining Restaurants in America. These awards reflect the combined opinions of more than 5 million restaurant reviews submitted by verified OpenTable diners for approximately 19,000 restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Showcasing restaurants situated in some of the most beautiful parts of the nation, the complete list includes award winners in 15 states, such as Geoffrey's Restaurant in Malibu, Hau Tree Lanai in Honolulu, and Latitudes in Key West. California claims the greatest number of winning restaurants with 38, followed by Florida with 23, Hawaii with 16, and Arizona with seven. Texas has four honorees, while Nevada and New York boast two winners apiece. Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, and Wisconsin are also represented. Restaurants serving American fare dominate the list, but several cuisines are also popular, including Hawaiian, Italian, Mexican, and seafood.

"From seating along pristine, sun-drenched beaches to dazzling water views, these winning restaurants have created some of the country's most coveted alfresco dining experiences," says Caroline Potter, OpenTable Chief Dining Officer. "Enjoying a meal in any of these sublime settings feels positively exclusive."

The Diners' Choice Awards for the Top 100 Best Outdoor Dining Restaurants in America are generated from more than 5 million restaurant reviews collected from verified OpenTable diners between May 1, 2013, and April 30, 2014. 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 "outdoor dining" category along with a minimum "overall" rating.

Based on this methodology, the following restaurants, listed in alphabetical order, comprise the Top 100 Outdoor Dining Restaurants in America according to OpenTable diners. The complete list may also be viewed at
