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.

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!

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.

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!

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

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!

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.

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!!!

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!

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

You scored 100% — again – yesterday!!! Everything went great! The transportation was great! Having Bonnie as our Guide again (she was our guide 2 years ago) was really nice. The Restaurants were really good – Quartino seemed to be THE favorite, hands down, for everyone. We will definitely be back in touch with you when we decide to do this event again. Thank you for going the extra mile to secure the transportation; it worked out extremely well.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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

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

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!!

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!!

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.

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.

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

Thank you for the great experience! It was an enjoyable evening.

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

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!

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!
