Need to find a restaurant to take your date this winter season? OpenTable is ahead of the game this year as cuffing season approaches. The restaurant reservation app has just teamed up with dating app Hinge and released a list of top 50 places to take your date in Canada. Out of that list, quite a few locations in the 6ix ended up topping the list and were named some of the best date night restaurants in Toronto. 

OpenTable found that 86 percent of Canadians feel "some level of stress" when looking for the perfect restaurant for a date. Hinge found out similar data in a survey they did which revealed that 81 percent of Hinge users agreed that "they wish it were less stressful to find a date night restaurant," the news release says.

Their response was to compile a list to make dating way easier and actually fun. The list they came up with is based on data generated solely from diner reviews collected between September 1, 2018 and August 31, 2019. It is based on actual experiences of real people, so we trust these truly are the best of the best the city has to offer. 

The list was made in alphabetical order, instead of numerical order. Here are the top Toronto restaurants and they all sound so romantic.
