Open Table, the online restaurant reservation site, has released its annual list of the 100 Best Al Fresco Restaurants in America, compiled from  12,000,000+ reviews and canvassing more than 30,000 restaurants.

It's a timely list, ready for enjoying open summer dining offered up in 19 states across the US, including new comers on this year's list, District Columbia, Colorado, Louisiana and Washington.

Needless to say, the beach state of California tops the list boasting almost a third of the listed restaurants listed. The sunshine state of Florida has 26 restaurants and tropical Hawaii follows up in third place with 10 restaurants. 

"Outdoor dining is synonymous with summer—there’s no better way to soak up a city’s scenery, be it urban vistas or waterfront views, than with an al fresco table at one of this year’s winning restaurants,” Caroline Potter, OpenTable’s chief dining officer, said in a statement.

The list was created from reviews gathered between April 30, 2018 and March 31 and only considered restaurants with a minimum "overall score" (comprised of diner ratings, user clout and total number of reviews) and number of qualifying reviews.
