Northeast Ohioans already know that our area provides the perfect backdrop for restaurants to woo their guests into food coma amid an alluring ambiance.

Now that's being confirmed on a national scale. 

OpenTable—a hub connecting restaurants and their patrons— put three restaurants in Northeast Ohio on their '100 Most Romantic Restaurants in America for 2018' list.

Eight restaurants from Ohio made the cut, some from Cincinnati and Columbus.

Situated among lush gardens and scenic lake, The Bistro at Gervasi in Canton is the ultimate Italian escape for wine lovers and pasta enthusiasts. The bistro offers some of the best wine varieties in the state, while also offering their own award-winning wine.

Next on the list is Chez Francois, an ultimate French gem located on the Vermilion River. Guests can enjoy upscale dining in an old-world dining room with exposed brick and floor-to-ceiling wood beams.

Last but not least is Pier W, which as been a Cleveland landmark since 1965. It's menu and atmosphere celebrates our rich coastline. The dining room offers a magnificent, almost 360-degree view of Lake Erie. The menu features sophisticated seafood spread perfectly paired with wine.
