Chicago Dine-Around was a great experience for our group. We were able to try a variety of restaurants in one night instead of just one. It was nice to sit with different people at each restaurant since many of our group had not met each other prior to this event. The food and service was great. The Dine-Around staff were professional and very accommodating. We all enjoyed the evening and would highly recommend this dining experience.

Thanks to you and the team for coordinating a fun event last Friday! The teachers loved the show, having their own personal transportation and the dinner went very well too. Everything went very smoothly and efficiently – we appreciate all of the attention to details. Thank you again!

I had a group of 22 corporate folks in Chicago for a meeting this week. I worked with Brandon at Chicago Dine-Around to plan a Progressive Dinner Tour. The private bus picked us up at our hotel and took us to 3 different restaurants. Appetizers at one, dinner at another and dessert at the 3rd. The original plan was for the bus to drop us back at the hotel after the last restaurant, however instead we had them drop us off at the John Hancock so we could have drinks at the 95th floor lounge. Chicago Dine-Around took care of everything for us. Literally all we had to do was get on the bus. All reservations, set up, payment, tips, etc at each restaurant was all handled for us. One person to work with (Brandon), and one invoice at the end of the night. It was a fantastic experience. A great way to taste Chicago by visiting several different restaurants. Such a carefree and fun night! If you plan to be in Chicago (or even if you are from Chicago, as I am) you have to do an event with this group. A+++++++++. Everyone with my group loved it, thought it was a lot fun and a much better experience than just going and sitting at one restaurant all night. Thanks to Brandon and the team from Chicago Dine Around for providing such an outstanding service!

The feedback has been outstanding – everyone loved the restaurants, the networking, and the touring. Great job!

Everything went great & Maria was an amazing host/tour guide. Thank you again! Happy Holidays!

Thank you for such a wonderful evening. Being in the hospitality industry we are always conscious of good customer service and I can say that your company provided excellent customer service. The event was such a success, our clients are still chatting about it. The food portions were large and the restaurants were welcoming. I was very pleased with how professional and organized your staff was. The Dine-Around team did not miss a beat on anything and you represented the Hilton Suites Chicago Magnificent Mile well. I would surly recommend your services to other companies that want to entertain clients in a whole new way.

Thank you. Everyone had a great time. Great choices on the venues. You guys are awesome. Hope to work with you again sometime.

It was a great time! Everyone was very happy with how it turned out and our guide Daniella was great! She made it so easy and helped everything run smoothly. Well worth the money and we all agreed we would do it again and could select different restaurants and it would feel like a totally different event. Everyone was really happy with it and felt it was a much better option than just doing a large group dinner at one restaurant!

Received feedback from one team member so far and she said everything was wonderful. Thank you so much for everything. Your professionalism, dedication and customer service were top-notch. We really appreciate everything that you have done for us. We look forward to working with you again in the future! Continued success.

I organized an event for almost 300 people at the Chicago Dine Around. I have been hearing feedback all day about what a great time people had, what a unique experience it was, and how fantastic the food was! The event was organized, fun, and really different than the usual corporate events. I also personally attended this once before with the general public and can tell you both the specialized events and the general ones are a totally fun, unique way to see the city. I’d wholeheartedly recommend this attraction to anyone, both Chicago natives and out of town guests! Thanks for a great time, Brandon and crew!

Just wanted to let you know that we all had an amazing time. Both restaurants were outstanding in regards to food & service. You really made our committee look good. Bonnie & Kim were great they really made the bus ride very enjoyable. We will keep you in mind for future events & some of us would like to do this again on our own. Thank you again for all of your help & patience. Look forward to working with you again.

I am just writing to personally THANK YOU for making the Dine-Around experience so wonderful for my Roseville group. Here is what the teacher had to say…
The Dine On experiences was simply stellar. We got a great kitchen tour of Quartino—including the sausage drying room! The kids tried truffle fries at Troquet and had an amazing dessert flight at Nacional 27 including chili-chocolate milkshake, tres leche cake, and churros.
I have not had a lot of hospitality groups in the past, but I am hoping to expand my horizons and reach out to other schools. Your customer service was awesome, and you have always been so professional and helpful. I have been in the industry for over 26 years, and I have dealt with a lot of vendors & partners. I am totally impressed. You are definitely doing something RIGHT!!! Please forward this email to your Supervisor.

Brandon and Team, Thank you to all for making my recent events a big success. Especially the second night. Dinner a Quartino was amazing. Chicago Dine Around’s willingness to work with our needs and last minute number changes made my life so much easier and allowed to appear to be a Rock Star to my group. It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to doing it again in the future. Thank you again!

Thanks for a wonderful tour yesterday. I’m looking forward to working with Chicago Dine Around again.

Chicago Dine-Around was great! Brandon took care of everything and was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He was able to work within our budget while still honoring what we wanted out of our event. The restaurant that we dined at was very hospitable and accommodating. Transportation worked very smoothly. And billing was so easy. This service is an event host’s dream!

Thanks again to you and Kim for being such great hosts last night! Everyone here today is still raving about what a great time they had, and I appreciate that the event was fantastic and there was very little for me to do. You guys are pros! Thanks again for everything, and I would definitely considering doing this again next year!

Thank you for your help coordinating this! Everyone had a GREAT time, and they are still talking about it! Also, please give a BIG thank you and kudos to our driver, John, for getting us there and back safely! He had some pretty yucky weather and road conditions to work with, but you never would have guessed it due to his excellent driving. The group was able to have a great time, laugh, socialize with each other, and didn’t have to worry about navigating the traffic and weather. Much thanks to him. He played a big part in our night being wonderful, and I want to make sure he got recognition for it!

The event was a success! As usual, you are very flexible and customer service oriented – we all really appreciate it. I enjoyed working with you as well. If I don’t have the pleasure again, best of luck in all you do! Thanks again.

Again, thank you for the great event. I had nothing but great feedback from our attendees, and might even have a new customer for you. If you ever need a reference or anything please let me know and I would be happy to assist. Thanks again.

This event was a smash! Everyone loved it even BEFORE we left and were not disappointed (afterwards). I left you a rave review on Trip Advisor. GREAT IDEA!!: We had a great time on our ‘trip.’ We entertained corporate and banking customers and EVERYONE had a great time! We were not confined to one location, guests sat next to new people each time and got to know other conference attendees, ate different, wonderful cuisine – highly recommended.

Everything was perfect! Thank you so so much! It was greatly enjoyed by all! Thanks again!

Thanks again for the great job you did with our group a couple weeks ago! Everyone had fun and the frequent change of venues ensured that there was a lot of mixing and mingling, which was my goal.

Everyone’s response was fantastic – it was a really big hit! I will certainly recommend it for other groups in our office and to friends & family! Thanks for all your help.

First of all, thank you so much for yesterday – everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. The choice of restaurants was superb, the food was delicious, the bus ride was great – I can’t say enough of great things about Chicago Dine Around. What’s is worth to you that you will probably be getting many, many reservations from different departments at Alberto Culver. I wrote an e-mail this morning to 5 different people in 5 different departments letting them know how great it was. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you.

The team had a great time last night. The food was great, as was each restaurant’s atmosphere. We will definitely recommend you all to our internal colleagues and other businesses. Thanks, again, for everything.

Yes! All great things. Everyone said the tour was super informative and interesting. The food was good and the hospitality was amazing! Thanks so much for everything!!!

Everyone enjoyed their time on the tour and it was way too much food, dessert was my favorite. But everything was really great.

Thank you so much for the evening! The team had a great time and absolutely loved the show! Bonnie was great and took great care of us and we certainly appreciated you both checking in on us during dinner.

We all had a great time last night. Everyone loved traveling the city and enjoyed the food. One of the best things is that at every restaurant we got to sit with different people, so we got to know everyone better. I also really appreciated your promptness and professionalism. We will definitely use you again.

Thank you – on the whole we thought it was a great experience, and I’m thankful for all the work that you, Maria and Angel put into our event. Maria was personable, the Chicago movie quiz was very well received, the staff at each restaurant was very helpful, the food was delicious and ready when we arrived. The bus was clean and everyone enjoyed their evening. Thank you again for your assistance in creating a memorable event!
