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.

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 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.

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.

Thanks! It was such a pleasurable experience! You guys did a wonderful job. I received many great compliments. Thanks again.

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.

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.

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!!!

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.

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

It was wonderful and the team was so accommodating.

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 just wanted to say thanks again for the wonderful event. The progressive dining experience was a lot of fun and everything turned out very well. The food was excellent. I think the ridiculously cold weather was tolerated by all because they were having a good time.

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.

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!

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.

Everyone enjoyed their time on the tour and it was way too much food, dessert was my favorite. But everything was really great.

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

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!

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.

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!

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.

Yes! All great things. Everyone said the tour was super informative and interesting. The food was good and the hospitality was amazing! Thanks so much 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.

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.

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!!

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 for facilitating our Dine-Around experience, the group had a wonderful time.

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.

Everything was perfect! Thank you so so much! It was greatly enjoyed by all! Thanks again!
