Reviews

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

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, 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.

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

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.

It was wonderful and the team was so accommodating.

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!

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

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

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!!!

Brandon was great about follow up, organizing the event, and taking care of all the details. All we had to do was show up. And on the coldest night of December, we were warmly shuttled from our hotel, to dinner, to the Oriental Theater, then back to our hotel. It was spectacular!

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.

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!

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 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 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.

Everyone had a wonderful time and the dine-around gave quite a flavor of Chicago. Thank you.

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.

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

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

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 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.

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

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. 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.

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.

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

We all had a great time last night. Everyone loved traveling the city and enjoyed the food. One of the best things is that at every restaurant we got to sit with different people, so we got to know everyone better. I also really appreciated your promptness and professionalism. We will definitely use you again.

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

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!
