This event was a smash! Everyone loved it even BEFORE we left and were not disappointed (afterwards). I left you a rave review on Trip Advisor. GREAT IDEA!!: We had a great time on our ‘trip.’ We entertained corporate and banking customers and EVERYONE had a great time! We were not confined to one location, guests sat next to new people each time and got to know other conference attendees, ate different, wonderful cuisine – highly recommended.

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.

Our group absolutely loved the experience. I often hear from folks that come in for meetings that they have never had a chance to go to Chicago. It gave everyone a taste of what it’s like to live in Chicago and all the fabulous restaurants. We had appetizers and house wine at an Italian Restaurant, Dinner in Greek Town – Grecian Chicken, and Dessert at a funky Japanese Restaurant. Our Group absolutely loved it! Dine Around provided plenty of staff and transportation was included in the cost. The buses were clean and nice and we had a whole lot of fun! I would definitely recommend Dine Around for a unique group meeting 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.

Thank you – on the whole we thought it was a great experience, and I’m thankful for all the work that you, Maria and Angel put into our event. Maria was personable, the Chicago movie quiz was very well received, the staff at each restaurant was very helpful, the food was delicious and ready when we arrived. The bus was clean and everyone enjoyed their evening. Thank you again for your assistance in creating a memorable event!

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.

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.

Thank you for your help coordinating this! Everyone had a GREAT time, and they are still talking about it! Also, please give a BIG thank you and kudos to our driver, John, for getting us there and back safely! He had some pretty yucky weather and road conditions to work with, but you never would have guessed it due to his excellent driving. The group was able to have a great time, laugh, socialize with each other, and didn’t have to worry about navigating the traffic and weather. Much thanks to him. He played a big part in our night being wonderful, and I want to make sure he got recognition for it!

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!!

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

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.

It was a great time! Everyone was very happy with how it turned out and our guide Daniella was great! She made it so easy and helped everything run smoothly. Well worth the money and we all agreed we would do it again and could select different restaurants and it would feel like a totally different event. Everyone was really happy with it and felt it was a much better option than just doing a large group dinner at one restaurant!

Everyone’s response was fantastic – it was a really big hit! I will certainly recommend it for other groups in our office and to friends & family! Thanks for all your help.

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 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!

The Dine Around was a blast and Brandon was fabulous! If you need a unique experience this is the best choice. They were prompt for our pickup, kind to everyone, involved the guests with Chicago trivia and the food was to die for! The cost is very affordable. I had several with special dietary requirements and that was not an issue. I was asked to find a unique experience to entertain an eclectic group of people from USA, Germany, Switzerland, Mexico, Brazil and Chile. A grand time was had by all.

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!

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!

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 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.

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.

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

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!

We cannot thank you and Kim enough for the wonderful evening last night. Our new faculty loved the experience, from the food to the trivia to the gorgeous views of the city at night, and have even asked if we can do this again as early as spring! You were not only incredibly organized, friendly and entertaining but also extremely generous and accommodating to all of our delays and last minute requests. Please let us know if there’s anything else that you need from us. We look forward to working with you again on this next fall and in the meantime will continue to recommend Chicago Dine-Around to our colleagues at the University of Chicago for their events! Thank you, again!

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.

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

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.

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