With Valentine's Day less than two weeks away, OpenTable named St. Louis the second most romantic city in America, after...San Antonio? The rankings were calculated using three variables: " the percentage of restaurants rated 'romantic' according to OpenTable diner reviews; the percentage of tables seated for two; and the percentage of people who dined out for Valentine's Day."

The weird part, though, is users of the restaurant reservation site named the Melting Pot (6683 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-725-4141) and Al's Steakhouse (1200 North First Street; 314-421-6399) the most romantic restaurants in town. We beg to differ. Here are some of our favorite local spots when we're in the mood for love.

Bar Les Freres (7637 Wydown Boulevard; 314-725-8880)

Bar Les Freres' size is one of its advantages. Low lights, cozy seating and homey (but French) decor all contribute to the romantic ambience of the restaurant. Go ahead and make goo-goo eyes at each other over candlelight and oil paintings.
