Deciding on where to go for the dinner part of the "dinner and a movie" Valentine's Day can be challenging. Do you stick with the same old restaurant, or do you risk a new place?

To help you find the perfect place to share a meal with your Valentine, OpenTable (download for iOS or Android), a leading restaurant reservation app, launched its Restaurant Matchmaker. Answer a few questions, and the app will pair you with your ideal eatery.

The Restaurant Matchmaker asks questions about how many people are in your party, your budget, what kinds of food you like, your ideal atmosphere and when you want to celebrate.

The Restaurant Matchmaker asks questions about how many people are in your party, your budget, what kinds of food you like, your ideal atmosphere and when you want to celebrate.

OpenTable takes the stress out of planning a night out, whether you're dining as a couple or a group. The app's Matchmaker tool can help you find the perfect fancy or laid-back spot.

Once the Matchmaker finds your restaurant, you can move seamlessly into OpenTable's app to learn more about the restaurant and make your reservation.

The app's recommended restaurants include, but aren't limited to, its annual list of the 100 Most Romantic Restaurants in America for 2019, as voted by OpenTable diners.

The app's list was crafted from more than 12 million verified diner reviews of more than 28,000 restaurants across the US, according to a press release.

"These 100 restaurants excel at setting the table for romance and creating intimate dining experiences at every service," Caroline Potter, Chief Dining Officer at OpenTable, said in the release. "Whether you're celebrating Valentine's Day with a new special someone, a spouse or even a friend, you can count on this list to find not only a restaurant with the right ambiance but also an exceptional meal."
