This is not a "convenient and comfortable experience" and food is not as advertised. Our first stop for Hors D'oeuvres and Wine was bread, salad and small pizzas some which did not arrive until we were being herded out. The "paired with" three types of wine were two carafes of house wine. Second stop Main Course = more bread, chicken, and pasta with no other choices. It included soft drinks but beware when bill came for people who ordered alcohol people were also billed for ice tea and juice, 18% gratuity and tax. Dessert was last and if you don't like Pecan Pie you are out of luck. You do interact with new people but if your goal is an enjoyable dining experience check out Tripadvisor for one of the great Chicago restaurants and for less money you can have a wonderful meal of your choice and a fine wine.

This is our second time to enjoy the dine around experience. Very nice to be taken to the front door and escorted right in to your table and food brought to you immediately. Each restaurant was very good and the help was very nice. Really enjoyed getting to meet people from all around the country. Brandon the host is very nice and knowledgeable of Chicago history. When we get the opportunity we will do it again!

Started with bread, salad, small pizzas. Slow service and rushed. Best pizza arrived as we had to leave. 2nd place: more bread, pasta and breaded-chicken. No vegetables and no choices! Would it hurt to offer a choice of grilled chicken or something else?

On a recent girls weekend trip to Chicago, my friend and I did the Chicago Dine-Around tour with Brandon. We had a blast! If you love food and enjoy meeting new people this is a great way to spend an evening. Even if you aren't a people person, this is a great way to visit several different restaurants and learn about Chicago. I will look for this type of tour on all vacations in the future. You won't be sorry you took this tour!

A progressive dinner format is an excellent way to experience a variety of restaurants in Chicago as a tourist. It also provides a pleasant social atmosphere as you meet others. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable and organized. As for food, I was less fond of all the appetizers that were offered but I could still enjoy the pita and hummus and cucumber/tomato salad. Now for the entree, this was 5 star authentic Italian cuisine with home-made sauce and melt-in-your- mouth chicken. Flavour oozed from the dishes. Dessert for me was a little overwhelming. My suggestion is to reduce proportions. The cornbread muffin was delicious but it was hard to have room for the pie and ice-cream. That needed to be half the size. My sister loved the overwhelmingly chocolate taste but I would have preferred more pecan popping.

Overall, the four of us loved this evening out as first time tourists to Chicago and would recommend it to everyone. I like your idea of always changing the venues which makes it a real draw for a local clientele.
