Four metro restaurants were named to OpenTable's 2018 "100 Best Restaurants in America" list, a compilation based on 12 million verified dinner reviews of more than 28,000 restaurants in all 50 states and Washington, D.C.

“From foodie-favorites with world-renowned chefs to breakthrough hidden gems, the list showcases the platform’s comprehensive network of dining options for every occasion across the country,” the online restaurant reservations site wrote in a news release.

Here are Georgia’s four big winners:

The Buckhead American restaurant is best known for its upscale ambiance and artwork by the likes of Pablo Picasso and Lucien Freud.

"I love the main dishes here because each brings a composition of interesting vegetables and garnishes that subtly interact with the fish or meat," former AJC dining columnist John Kessler wrote about the restaurant in 2015.

Reviewers say the cacao pod is a dessert favorite.
