3 Area Restaurants Land On Yelp's Most (& Least) Romantic Spots For Valentine's Day

Jan 31, 2020

The crowd-sourced review site Yelp has released lists of the most and least romantic spots for Valentine's Day across the nation, and three area businesses have found themselves in the mix.  

Downtown's Sotto lands at No. 20 of Yelp's 100 Most Romantic Restaurants, the only area eatery to land on the list, and one of the few Midwest locales to make an appearance. "I have gone on Tinder dates in Cinci just to eat here," one Yelper wrote of the the Danny Combs-helmed spot that serves up Italian fare. 

Meanwhile two area businesses are on the site's Top 100 Dive Bars for Your Anti-Valentine's Night Out: at No. 85, Glendale's Friendly Stop Bar & Grill; and at No. 52, Gypsys in Covington.

Yelp determined the top 100 for each list by identifying restaurants on its platform with a large number of reviews mentioning specific keywords used between Jan. 1, 2019 and Jan. 14, 2020, a spokesperson tells WVXU.
