What people are saying about our Dining in the Dark tasting experience

4.8 out of 5 stars

  • Aishlea S.

    Fantastic and well thought experience. Really had to rely on other senses to get your way through the table and manage to carefully grab your wine without spilling. Food menu was well thought out... Waitress Georgia was fantastic. Had a great time and would recommend to all!

  • Darren C.

    Fabulous from start to finish. We had a fantastic experience at Dining in the Dark. The food was delicious. Chelsea our server was fun, attentive and informative. We would definitely do this again and will return soon.

  • Keenan C.

    My experience was very fun. The waiters were very nice and helpful. The food tasted very good (even though I never got a chance to see my plate lol). The dimly lit room and blindfold made the experience even more interesting. I will definitely be a returning patron of this event.
