Uncover the culinary secrets of  your city

Objective Perceptions offers everyday individuals a unique opportunity to discover the diverse culinary scene and indulge in a variety of dining experiences - all while providing valuable feedback to restaurants to improve their customer experiences.  

What is a Mystery Diner?

At Objective Perceptions, our passionate team of Mystery Diners are our secret weapon and the heart of our company. Mystery Diners visit restaurants anonymously, evaluating everything from the food quality and ambience, to the attentiveness of the staff. Diners then complete a detailed survey with over 150 customer touch points and receive full meal reimbursement upon survey completion. 

Who are our Mystery Diners?

Our Mystery Diners are everyday people, just like you, who all share a common love for good food and attentive service. As an Objective Perception's Mystery Diner, you'll enjoy exclusive dining experiences at a variety of restaurants – from trendy cafes and casual eateries to upscale banquets and fine dining establishments, in exchange for providing valuable, unbiased feedback to help restaurants improve.

Our Mystery Diners are typically working individuals who enjoy the occasional fun night out, while trying a new dining experience. Mystery dining assessments are flexible. You get to choose which assignments you want to go to, and the frequency. On average, most mystery diners conduct between 1-2 surveys a month or every few months, allowing you to explore new restaurants at your own pace.
