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.

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!

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

Thanks so much for everything. Everyone had a great time!! Thanks again for a great night!

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!

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.

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!

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!!!

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.

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.

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!!!

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!

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.

Chicago Dine-Around was a great experience for our group. We were able to try a variety of restaurants in one night instead of just one. It was nice to sit with different people at each restaurant since many of our group had not met each other prior to this event. The food and service was great. The Dine-Around staff were professional and very accommodating. We all enjoyed the evening and would highly recommend this dining experience.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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!

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

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!

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

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.

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!

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

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 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 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.
