Only one Ottawa restaurant among top 100 in Canada, OpenTable says
Only one Ottawa restaurant cracked OpenTable's annual list of the 100 best in Canada.
Riviera, the popular fine dining restaurant on Sparks Street, steps from Parliament Hill, is the only restaurant in the nation's capital to make the restaurant booking site's annual list 2022 list.
That's despite 48 Ontario restaurants making the cut—nearly half of the list.
Toronto has the most on the list, with 31 restaurants in the top 100. Even Guelph and Oakville—with two restaurants each—topped Ottawa's count.
It's a bit of a fall from grace for Ontario's second-largest city. Last year, four Ottawa restaurants were on the list: Riviera, Atelier, Bar Lupulus and North and Navy.
OpenTable says the list is generated from diner reviews collected between Oct. 1, 2021 and Sept. 30, 2022. A news release from the company said that restaurants with "a minimum overall rating and number of qualifying reviews" were considered for the list.
"All qualifying restaurants were then sorted according to an overall score generated by unique data points, such as overall diner rating, user klout, total number of reviews and regional overall rating," the release said.
There are 23 restaurants from Alberta, 18 from B.C. and nine from Quebec on the list.
Ottawa fared better on a list of Canada's 100 best restaurants released earlier this year chosen by 100 industry insiders, with six local spots making the list.
Italian fine dining restaurant North & Navy was 40th on that list, Riviera was 42nd, Supply and Demand foods and raw bar placed 43rd, vegetable-focused restaurant Alice came 50th, nearby Atelier was 54th, Beckta on Elgin Street was 57th.
Les Fougeres in Chelsea, Que. Also placed, finishing 77th on the list.
