ST. LOUIS – According to a new study by OpenTable, St. Louis is among the most romantic cities in the U.S.

To identify the ranking of cities where romantic dining is inherently part of the culture, the OpenTable Most Romantic Cities Index was calculated using three variables: the percentage of restaurants rated "romantic" according to OpenTable diner reviews; the percentage of tables seated for two; and the percentage of people who dined out for Valentine's Day in 2017.

St. Louis ranks No. 15.
