To see what safety precautions OpenTable restaurants are following, just visit any restaurant profile on the app or website. Your first time visiting, a pop-up about safety precautions will appear, if that restaurant has added them. Clicking on the pop-up message directs you to the details section of profiles, where the list appears under “Safety Precautions.”

Our lists are based on a number of factors from diner feedback, including number of reviews, overall ratings, and tags that indicate whether a restaurant is good for a certain occasion (i.e. outdoor dining or kid-friendly environments). We analyzed restaurants that had the highest ratings, number of reviews and/or tags in order to identify the top 25 in these different categories.
