According to OpenTable’s recent finding, the stigma surrounding dining solo started to lift with consumers being eager to savour special culinary experiences alone.

As the online restaurant reservation platform revealed, the majority of solo dining reservations are booked for dinner, followed by lunch with Canadian solo diners booking the majority of their tables on a weekday saving the weekends for dining with others.

Ziv Schierau, head, national accounts, Canada, OpenTable, explained, "This increase in the number of reservations made for one, illustrates shifting attitudes in Canadian dining culture. Instead of opting for takeout or room service, Canadians are embracing solo dining and the opportunity to unwind and enjoy a unique meal at their own pace."
