OpenTable lists 100 best Canadian restaurants for fall outdoor dining

Summer patio season is over, unfortunately. But that doesn’t mean that outdoor dining should be off the menu entirely.

OpenTable data suggests that while Canadians typically move indoors by the end of September, 41 per cent of Canadians are planning on dining outdoors as far into the fall as possible.

Restaurants are investing in outdoor heaters, fire tables, blankets, and even chic fall fashion such as “coatigans” or “shackets” to keep diners comfortable.

OpenTable has released a list of the 100 best restaurants in Canada for outdoor dining in Fall 2021 so that anyone who wants to make the most of this year’s extended patio season can choose from among the best-rated patios in the country, says Matt Davis, District Director of OpenTable Canada.

“Diners are determined to enjoy every last moment of the season, and restaurants are going above and beyond to make it happen.”

OpenTable’s list is generated solely from diner reviews collected between June 1, 2020 and May 31, 2021. All restaurants with a minimum “overall” score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. The overall score is made up of unique data points, such as overall diner rating, user clout, total number of reviews, and regional overall rating. Qualifying restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the sum of tags for which “hot spot” was selected as a special feature.
