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

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

Thank you for your services; I have had nothing but great feedback from our employees and the ones who where not able to make it are now regretting their decision. Thank you for the Dine-Around Chicago experience; I greatly appreciate it and your kindness toward the Strive Group. If anyone in the future is looking for entertainment I would not hesitate recommending Chicago Dine-Around.

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.

My group loved the dinner tour. They absolutely raved about it – thank you!!!

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 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.

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

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!!!

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.

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.

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.

Quite a few people that went last night came up to me and said they had a really good time. They commented that the service that Chicago Dine-Around provided was wonderful. Thank you.

Everything worked out great. Everybody from the team kept saying how much of a blast it was – lots of laughing during the show, food and service were great at the restaurant, the chartered coach was a HUGE hit, and our personal escorts were very personable and prompt.

Thank you, also, for everything you did to make this event a success. Your attention to detail, liaising with the staff to ensure the special meals went to the correct people, and fun tour commentary were much appreciated. Great job! Our group seemed to really enjoy the event and I suspect we’ll be working together again in the future.

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!

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

Just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful outing on 7/19. The weather was great, food was delicious, and Daniella was a great host. I’ve heard nothing but compliments from the team here. Thanks again for a pleasurable event!

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!

You were delightful to work with. I heard many comments about how much fun the Dine-Around was. People were buzzing about how enjoyable the tour and dinner was. I appreciate all your hard work and am happy we decided to add your event to our calendars.

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.

The comments were all great and they really had a great evening. Thanks again for everything!

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

Our group absolutely loved the experience. I often hear from folks that come in for meetings that they have never had a chance to go to Chicago. It gave everyone a taste of what it’s like to live in Chicago and all the fabulous restaurants. We had appetizers and house wine at an Italian Restaurant, Dinner in Greek Town – Grecian Chicken, and Dessert at a funky Japanese Restaurant. Our Group absolutely loved it! Dine Around provided plenty of staff and transportation was included in the cost. The buses were clean and nice and we had a whole lot of fun! I would definitely recommend Dine Around for a unique group meeting experience.

Thank you for the great experience! It was an enjoyable evening.

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!

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!

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!

Thank you SO SO much again for all your efforts. I really appreciate it. As you knew, the evening was a complete hit with everyone and you were an absolute perfect host! I’m certainly going to spread the word to others and look forward to participating in it again myself! Thank you again.
