Featuring restaurants showcasing both natural and urban beauty that attract
locals and travelers alike, the complete list includes award winners in 28
states, such as Chart House Restaurant in Monterey, California, Top of Waikiki
in Honolulu, Hawaii, and Water's Edge in Long Island City, New York. The

restaurants. Washington follows with seven honorees, Hawaii with five, and
Florida with four. Arizona, Maine, Maryland, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio,
Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Wisconsin, and Wyoming each have three award
winners. Michigan and New Jersey have two apiece. Colorado, Indiana, Iowa,
Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma,
Oregon, and Virginia are also represented.

Diners delighted most in scenic views of the water, with oceanfront
restaurants proving most popular, followed closely by lakeside and riverfront
eateries. Cityscape establishments and those in natural settings were equally
common on the list. American cuisine was most prevalent, followed by seafood.
Chinese, French, Italian, Peruvian, and Polynesian fares are also present on
the list.

"The spectacular vistas at these winning restaurants are as stunning as the
delicious dishes the chefs are presenting," says Caroline Potter, OpenTable
Chief Dining Officer. "From breathtaking waterfront seating to sweeping city
views, these restaurants represent the very best in destination dining around
our beautiful country."

The Diners' Choice Awards for the Top 100 Scenic View Restaurants in America
are generated from more than 5 million restaurant reviews collected from
verified OpenTable diners between July 1, 2013, and June 30, 2014. All
restaurants with a minimum "overall" score and number of qualifying reviews
were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then scored and
sorted according to the percentage of qualifying reviews for which "scenic
view" was selected as a special feature.

Based on this methodology, the following restaurants, listed in alphabetical
order, comprise the Top 100 Scenic View Restaurants in America according to
OpenTable diners. The complete list may also be viewed at
