Slackers, you still have time.

If you procrastinated booking your Valentine's Day dinner reservations and feel awful about it, just know that you're not alone: As we reported last year, 40% of people who book reservations for the holiday do so the week before. And even if you've left everything to February 14, with just hours to spare, there's still time to pull something together without your date knowing you only just remembered. 

Quite helpfully, OpenTable's new "Matchmaker" tool will show you restaurants that still have reservations available for Valentine's Day. We did some of the work for you and found some pretty romantic restaurants that still have dinner-time-ish reservations (5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.) openings, in several of OpenTable's top markets. 

NOTE: We will update this list as reservations get snatched up.

Another tip for procrastinators, as we mentioned last year: If you're dead-set on dining at a particular restaurant, keep checking its availability. People are constantly getting sick in February, so that means there will be lots of day-of cancellations.
