Honolulu among most romantic U.S. cities

Honolulu is the 18th-most romantic city in the U.S. according to a new, pre-Valentine’s Day ranking by OpenTable.com, an online dining reservations and review site.

Hometown boosters may find difficult to swallow, that Honolulu is romantically ranked below Providence, R.I. (No. 3), Salt Lake City, Utah (No. 6); or Milwaukee, Wis. (No. 12).

However, the index was calculated from among reviews posted on OpenTable.com using three variables: the percentage of restaurants rated “romantic,” the percentage of tables seated for two, and the percentage of people who dined out for Valentine’s Day last year.

Texas tops the OpenTable romantic city index with San Antonio at No. 1 and Austin at No. 2. The full list may be viewed online.

Honolulu’s 10 most romantic restaurants, according to more than 114,900 reviews are, in ranked order, La Mer at Halekulani; Michel’s at the Colony Surf; Sarento’s Top of the “I”; Azul, at Ko Olina; Azure at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel; Chef Mavro; Beachhouse at Moana Surfrider; Ocean House Restaurant; Top of Waikiki, and 53 By the Sea.

I guess the saying, "Can't see the forest for the trees" applies here. Honolulu? Romantic?

Yikes, I find little time for romance. And i ride the bus up Kapahulu after midnight some nights and find despair more often than romance.
