Selecting the ideal restaurant to dine in with a large group of people involves a variety of considerations: Will the menu appeal to everyone? Does the restaurant have enough space to accommodate all diners at one large table? Will everyone be able to hear each other speak? Does the price point match everyone's budget? OpenTable now makes the entire process a bit simpler.

The website gathered data from across the country and selected the 100 best restaurants for groups in the U.S. based on which eateries "diners have ranked as favorite when dining in large parties." In terms of methodology, OpenTable first analyzed the 10 million reviews that it published between October 1, 2016 and September 29, 2017 and then sorted the qualifying restaurants "according to the percentage of reviews for which 'great for groups' was selected as a special feature."

The list covers 26 states, with New York, Illinois and California boasting the majority of entries. Here is the ranking, in alphabetical order:
