Not that locals needed a survey to prove H-Town's romance quotient, but OpenTable is delivering one anyway. Just in time for Valentine's day, the online restaurant reservations company is releasing its list of the 25 Most Romantic Dining Cities in the United States and Houston comes in at #10.

Three variables were used to calculate the results—the percentage of restaurants rated "romantic" according to OpenTable diner reviews, the percentage of tables for two and the percentage of people who dined out for Valentine's Day in 2012.

The following cities make up the Top 25 Most Romantic Dining Cities in the U.S.:

1. San Antonio, Texas
2. Austin, Texas
3. Providence, Rhode Island
4. La Jolla, California
5. Columbus, Ohio
