Here is some of the feedback I received!
· Loved it! I would definitely do it again. Loved the idea of going to different restaurants for each course and the tour guide was very friendly.
· I thought it was great. The lady running it was really nice and sweet and she kept it moving like clockwork. Very fun.
· Chicago Dine Around was so much fun. Our host made the experience fun with interactive games during our rides to different locations. And the food was delicious.
· Overall good experience. It was a very new and creative idea, good restaurants, and was kept on good schedule.

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.

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!

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 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.

I wanted to thank you for all of your efforts in planning and coordinating the event for us yesterday. From what I heard I think everyone really enjoyed themselves and I really appreciate you guys being flexible with the timing and options we had. Thanks again!!

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!

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.

THANK YOU again! The buzz around the office is swirling around this morning!! Some have made comments to me that they want to know what other restaurants there are to choose from when we do this again 🙂 Thank you & it was such an AWESOME experience!!

The Dine Around was a blast and Brandon was fabulous! If you need a unique experience this is the best choice. They were prompt for our pickup, kind to everyone, involved the guests with Chicago trivia and the food was to die for! The cost is very affordable. I had several with special dietary requirements and that was not an issue. I was asked to find a unique experience to entertain an eclectic group of people from USA, Germany, Switzerland, Mexico, Brazil and Chile. A grand time was had by all.

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

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

It was wonderful and the team was so accommodating.

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.

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.

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.

Thanks for organizing the night out to Second City, it was the highlight of the trip and much appreciated. I will recommend this to other groups here at KC that will be coming to Chicago later this year. Most everyone from the Chicago trip is back in the office today. Cece said that the whole night was simply amazing. Everyone had such an awesome, fun time. I will highly recommend it to everyone else here at Kimberly-Clark.

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.

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.

We had a great experience with Chicago Dine Around from the initial visit when they took me to a variety of restaurants to check out different options, to on-site event support. They were prompt, extremely responsive, and very customer oriented. They went above and beyond by securing a kosher meal for one student. We were a group of 200 people and the event was smooth on both nights. Dinner & show one night and dinner & a stop at Bean/Museum Campus the next. The night of the show they stepped in to work with the vendor who was not as customer oriented rather than having me be the go-between. Really appreciate their flexibility and support through the process. Would highly recommend their services.

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.

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!

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.

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.
