You scored 100% — again – yesterday!!! Everything went great! The transportation was great! Having Bonnie as our Guide again (she was our guide 2 years ago) was really nice. The Restaurants were really good – Quartino seemed to be THE favorite, hands down, for everyone. We will definitely be back in touch with you when we decide to do this event again. Thank you for going the extra mile to secure the transportation; it worked out extremely well.

It was a wonderful afternoon – Bonnie was very friendly and very attentive to anyone’s needs and kept us right on schedule.

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.

Thanks so much for everything. Everyone had a great time!! Thanks again for a great night!

Thank you SO MUCH for helping us to host such a great event! Everyone really loved it and could not stop talking about how much they enjoyed themselves. They were still raving about it the next day! And thanks again for everything. It was truly a great event. I don’t know how I’m going to top it next time.

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.

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!

The conference we held is an annual event and we will definitely be suggesting it to our future conference planners. Thank you again for your flexibility in working with us, we had a wonderful time!

Our evening went very well. Nothing but positive feedback from all of our guests. Night flowed with ease for all we had planned.

The Dine-Around was a HUGE success and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. We especially got a kick out of our Tour Guide and the Chicago trivia. The food was exceptional and each restaurant was a unique experience in itself. We will spread the word. Thanks for making it all go so seamlessly.

Thank you for making this a great experience for us. I am glad we were able to make this night happen with your assistance.

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.

All of our guests’ feedback of the event was positive. They enjoyed the food and the restaurants, and the settings where they could visit with each other. There was plenty of food, which they enjoyed also.

Your team did a great job. Our guests had a fantastic time. It was enjoyed by all. Thanks for your helpfulness throughout the process.

Thank you—Everyone had a marvelous time last night! It turned out to be an awesome night—the weather cleared just in time and was so pleasant to be out on the boat. You make everything so easy (for us, anyway J) and I so appreciate the attention to detail and timeliness. Sapori was fantastic—food was delicious, staff very attentive and they accommodated our vegan co-workers so well! Bonnie was awesome as our guide and Arthur was a great driver! Thanks again from all of us—I have heard over and over today what a wonderful evening it was!

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.

Brandon was great about follow up, organizing the event, and taking care of all the details. All we had to do was show up. And on the coldest night of December, we were warmly shuttled from our hotel, to dinner, to the Oriental Theater, then back to our hotel. It was spectacular!

Thank you for everything on Wednesday night! It was such a great evening and our attendees really enjoyed themselves. Many of them commented to me that this was the best event they have been to. I will definitely keep you in mind for any future events. I will also let the other meeting planners know about your company in case she has any Chicago events coming up. I really appreciate all of your hard work to put this event together. Thank you!

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.

Yes! I heard the same thing (everybody had a wonderful time) and lots of too much food!! But it was a great ice breaker for our group and the Director was especially happy which is the best thing!! Thanks again, everyone had nothing but great things to say!

Our experience was greater than what we expected. This was something new to do as a team builder since our Oncology organization is not as large as the other departments within the organization. We choosing Chicago Dine-Around, I completely went off the Yelp reviews and I was hoping that wasn’t a mistake. And guess what, it wasn’t, it was FANTASTIC. Brandon arranged for ground transportation to pick up the group from our office (Northbrook) and bring us downtown so that individuals wouldn’t have to drive, which was a seller for us as our team hates to drive downtown after work. Brandon and his team met us at the first restaurant and the night began from there. The choices are restaurants they have to choose from and the individual attention that Brandon ensures you receive is amazing. We chose to go with his top tier package as this provided us with unlimited beverages. During the bus ride, it was nice to learn more about Chicago even though the majority of us are from here. We ended the evening with dessert at the drake Hotel which was amazing. What I loved about this experience is that at each stop we sat with different people, it wasn’t planned but something that came naturally to us to get to know other people in our organization that we don’t talk to on a daily basis. THE TEAM STILL TALKS ABOUT IT TODAY.
After experiencing such great service, I had my meeting planning department reach out to Brandon again for another event that I was responsible for a much larger audience as we thought this would be great for our out of town guest. Once again this was the best choice ever, and the greatest part was that Brandon was our host for this event. Once again we went to different restaurants for each course (dietary options are not an issue as Brandon ensures this is handled before we got to the restaurant). This team we have a cross-functional team that included senior level management and they LOVED IT. We ended our night at a Jazz Club for dessert but my group was having such a good time, I don’t know if we even listened to the jazz music. This event that Brandon sponsors is such a great team building event!!! What better way to get to know your colleagues and experience the taste of Chicago. What a fantastic idea that Brandon and his team came up with. We will definitely be participating again in the future, more when the weather gets nice as we did our last Progressive Dining Tour with him in February of this year.
I am so happy that you reached out to me to provide this review; I would highly recommend Brandon and his team!!!

Here is a GREAT testimonial about your business. Thank you for taking such exceptional care of this customer from Cardinal Health, and as always, thank you for your continued support of the CCTB. It is a pleasure to recommend companies likes yours that excel at customer service.

I want to thank you sincerely for the wonderful service from the start, and I want to let you know I and all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the Chicago Dine-Around Tour. Everyone thought it was a great idea, and the food was fantastic at all three restaurants. It really was a fun evening for all. Again, we all had a really fun time, and, the little tour of the city prompted most of our guests to venture back downtown on Thursday night to do *whatever* they wanted. Thank you again!!

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.

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.

Thank you. We really enjoyed it. We often have guests from out of town and your service offers a great way to get downtown to show people Chicago. Thanks Again.

I have to say we all had such a great time! I’ve already received several thank you notes from my team saying things like:
· Definitely one of my favorite off-sites in my 16 years at PEP.
· Best offsite ever!
· So much fun and the food was great. You’ve set the bar high for next year 🙂
· Great way to end the year!
· It was so nice to be able to get out of the office and hang out with the team in a really fun and creative setting.
Henry and Bonnie were fantastic! The restaurants/settings/food were amazing. And, working with you has been wonderful. You’re always so responsive and in touch and worked SO HARD to accommodate our every request. Thank you, truly! And an extra thank you for the gift card. I’d love to put that to use in the future. Thanks again for everything!

I can’t thank you enough for all of your help with last week’s event, I heard NOTHING but great things. It was 100% awesome all the way around. Again, thank you very much. I have planned many events and the ease of the planning with this and the event itself was genuinely one of a kind.

Everything was wonderful! Maria and Joe were very accommodating to our team – they made the evening very enjoyable!

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!
