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.

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.

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!

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

The whole experience was wonderful! Maureen and Jamal were great. She was able to handle all our guests’ food allergies even with very limited notice, and it was very helpful that she took care of the bills with all of the vendors and notified me of when we should leave in order to stay on schedule. It was also very nice that you made an effort to stop by and make sure that things were running smoothly. My team and our guests had a great time and really enjoyed the experience. Thanks for all of your help and I’m sure we’ll be working again together in the future!

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!

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!

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 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!

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

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!

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.

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.

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!!

Thanks again for a wonderful, memorable party. I feel certain we’ll be back next year. The Chicago Dine Around Progressive Dinner Tour was the best holiday party my boss has had for his direct reports! The restaurants were great, our driver was friendly and prompt in picking us up and taking us back at the end of the evening, and our tour guide kept us on schedule and told great stories about Chicago during the drive to each restaurant. As the planner, this was great for me because Chicago Dine Around Staff did all the work! I could actually enjoy myself and not worry. Many thanks to Brandon and his wonderful staff. Book your holiday event with Chicago Dine Around now!

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!

Our employees had a truly enjoyable time. They loved the comfort of being driven from place to place. Sonny, our driver, was friendly and entertaining. Bonnie was great in keeping us on schedule and very accommodating. The three employees who were acknowledged for their birthdays at the last restaurant also appreciated the birthday wishes and blowing out their candles. It’s going to be hard to top that company event!

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

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