OpenTable Restaurant Reviews Reveal
Top 100 Best Restaurants in America

Winning Restaurants Span Thirty States and Washington, D.C., with California, New York,
Illinois, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania Leading the Pack

            SAN FRANCISCO – December 11, 2013 – As we toast a remarkable year of fine dining,
OpenTable (NASDAQ: OPEN), the world’s leading provider of online restaurant reservations, is pleased
to celebrate the 2013 Diners’ Choice Award winners for the Top 100 Best Restaurants in America. These awards reflect the combined opinions of more than 5 million restaurant reviews submitted by verified OpenTable diners for approximately 19,000 restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

            Standing out in a highly competitive field of exceptional chefs and restaurateurs, the complete list
of honorees are scattered among 30 states and Washington, D.C., and include Del Posto in New York
City, Noisette in Portland, Oregon, and Rasika in Washington, D.C. California and New York boast the
greatest number of winning restaurants with 14 and 13, respectively, followed by Illinois with seven. New
Jersey and Pennsylvania, each boast five winning restaurants. Arizona, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio,
South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia claim four winners apiece, while Washington, D.C., and Oregon
have three. Colorado, Hawaii, Louisiana, Massachusetts, and Nevada have two. Alabama, Florida,
Kansas, Maryland, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Washington,
and Wisconsin also have winning eateries. While American fare restaurants have the greatest number of
winners, followed by those serving French food, an eclectic array of cuisines are represented, including
English, Indian, Korean, Spanish, and Thai.

            "These winning restaurants are conducted like great orchestras,” said Caroline Potter, OpenTable
Chief Dining Officer. “All the players, from chefs and managers to wait staff and sommeliers, have
artfully mastered their parts, and every instrument of hospitality, whether it be deft service or imaginative
menus, is in harmony with one another to create a symphonic dining experience.”

            The Diners’ Choice Awards for the Top 100 Best Restaurants in America are generated from
more than 5 million restaurant reviews collected from verified OpenTable diners between November 14,
2012, and November 15, 2013. All restaurants with a minimum number of qualifying reviews were
included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then sorted according to a score calculated from
each restaurant’s average rating in the “overall” category along with that restaurant’s rating relative to
others in the same metropolitan area and the average number of restaurants reviewed by diners who
reviewed that restaurant.

            Based on this methodology, the following restaurants, listed in alphabetical order, comprise the
Top 100 Best Restaurants in America according to OpenTable diners.
