Great evening showcasing Chicago! We did a dine-around with 30 guests from all over the country. Our objectives were to have a great time together, eat well and to showcase our great city. The folks at Dine-Around were able to help us achieve those objectives 100%. Well done!! I highly recommend them and would use them again.

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.

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

We cannot thank you and Kim enough for the wonderful evening last night. Our new faculty loved the experience, from the food to the trivia to the gorgeous views of the city at night, and have even asked if we can do this again as early as spring! You were not only incredibly organized, friendly and entertaining but also extremely generous and accommodating to all of our delays and last minute requests. Please let us know if there’s anything else that you need from us. We look forward to working with you again on this next fall and in the meantime will continue to recommend Chicago Dine-Around to our colleagues at the University of Chicago for their events! Thank you, again!

I have heard only great things about the event. You made it seamless and I will definitely reach out to you for future events and spread the word to other departments. Thanks again for your help.

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

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.

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

I want to thank you for making our experience with Chicago Dine-Around very enjoyable. The evening was a great success. All of the attendees had great compliments for the evening. They enjoyed the food, the tour and Millennium Park. I’d also like to thank Bonnie. She made sure the meals was a great experience at the restaurants, was interactive with facts about Chicago that was entertaining and was very open and amenable. She contributed to the enjoyment of the evening. I would have no problem recommending your company to others.

Thanks again for the fun evening last night. The group was raving about it all day. I will definitely post the feedback on TripAdvisor and yelp. When trying to find a group event for 50 with varying tastes and desires, I stumbled across Chicago Dine-Around. The reviews are right. This is a great experience for companies or individuals interested in a unique dining experience. Our group loved the varied dining experience, the bus tour along the way and the commentary and trivia games Brandon provided. I highly recommend this activity; it is definitely a great value.

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.

Thank you so much for your help coordinating our dinner last weekend. It sounds like everyone had a great time and we appreciate your management of all the components. Thanks again – look forward to working with you again.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!

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

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.

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 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.

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!

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

You all have been fantastic to work with and I will surely recommend you all. Bonnie and the driver did a FANTASTIC job. Thank you!

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.

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.

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

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