To cull the list, OpenTable collected diner reviews between June 1, 2018 and May 31, 2019—restaurants had to have a minimum “overall score” (combining overall diner rating, user clout, total number of reviews, and regional overall rating) and certain number of reviews to qualify. Then, qualifying restaurants were scored and sorted based on how many times the “scenic views” tag was selected as a special feature.
