This gorgeous Burnaby venue has been named one of Canada's most romantic restaurants

Woo your sweetheart by snagging a table at this stunning lakeside venue.
Lakeside dining, Hart House Restaurant in Burnaby named one of Canada's most romantic restaurants.

Imagine this: You're having a candlelit dinner at the most romantic restaurant in the city; you look up to find the most breathtaking view. Your partner's face lights up as you hold their hand while Katy Perry's Teenage Dream plays in the background. Every February, will you be my Valentine? 

You can spark those fireworks with your valentine with a candlelit dinner at one of Canada's most romantic restaurants right here in the heart of Burnaby: Hart House Restaurant. 

OpenTable, a global leader in restaurant technology has curated a list of 100 most romantic restaurants in Canada, analyzing over a million diner reviews — just in time for Valentine's Day. The list features restaurants from across six provinces including 20 spots in British Columbia.

Hart House is the only local favourite to be featured in the list — standing out for its exceptional service, romantic ambience and delicious fare. 

Valentine's Day is one of the busiest dining days of the year, so OpenTable suggests making reservations a week in advance to increase the chances of snagging that hot table. As per data collected last year, over half (52%) of the reservations at restaurants were made by Feb. 8 last year — so today is the day to get calling and reserving that hot table. 

If you are flexible dining at off-peak hours, your chances of scoring a table may increase, OpenTable data suggests. 

The restaurant is in high demand, and according to OpenTable's website, there is no online availability during the peak times (as of Feb. 7), so hurry up to get a chance to dine at one of Canada's most romantic restaurants with your sweetheart and enjoy candlelit lakeside dining with sustainable West Coast cuisine inspired by Mediterranean flavours.
