OpenTable lists Canada’s most beloved restaurants for 2022

Canadian eateries receive some well-deserved recognition from OpenTable in the recently-released list of the Top 100 Most Beloved Restaurants in Canada for 2022.

The list features restaurants offering experiences of all types, from fine dining to budget-friendly, highlighting 48 restaurants in Ontario, 23 in Alberta,18 in British Columbia, nine in Quebec, and one in New Brunswick. 

These highly-rated dining spots were chosen after more than a million reviews left by verified OpenTable diners from October 1, 2021 and September 30, 2022 were considered. 

“We’re seeing a strong interest in a variety of dining establishments and experiences this year, and strong representation from traditional continental to diverse international cuisines,” said Matt Davis, Country Director, OpenTable Canada. “This diner-generated reference guide stands apart from others because it’s a reflection of diners’ most beloved restaurants across the country. Only those who book via OpenTable and dine are able to leave a review.” 

The list is compiled by tallying qualifying restaurants’ overall scores, generated by unique data points, such as overall diner rating, user clout, total number of reviews, and regional overall rating.
