Just in time for Valentine’s Day, OpenTable.com has released a list of the 100 most romantic restaurants in America, based on reviews by users.

OpenTable is a service that lets diners make reservations online. After the meal, the site asks diners to review the restaurant.

According to OpenTable, “the list of honorees is based on an analysis of more than 5 million reviews of 20,000+ restaurants across the country.”

Seventeen states, including Massachusetts, didn’t have a restaurant on the list. Maine did: the White Barn Inn in Kennebunk.

Bangor Daily News reporter Kathleen Pierce profiled the restaurant, which is situated in two restored barns built in the 1820s. “Its vaulted ceilings and gourmet aromas keep locals, vacationers and day-trippers from Boston and beyond returning year after year,” Pierce wrote. Check out the above video to see more of the restaurant.

If you’re looking to make a big impression on Valentine’s Day (and are comfortable paying $109/person for your meal) as of Monday afternoon OpenTable shows openings at the White Barn Inn on Feb. 14 between 8 and 9:30 p.m.
