“I don’t want to meet the same familiar faces at each event”.  (At Tablemates dinners, you meet 3 new people  of the opposite gender – 6 in each group.  You can swap contact details with other members after our events.  This gives you more chances of meeting that special someone and/or new friends).

“If I am paying a Membership Fee to join, I expect more than just an online questionnaire or chat over the phone.  Otherwise, how do you know your members – and whether they’re honest and genuine?”  (Tablemates provides a quality, refined level of service by providing a personal registration meeting so we can accurately establish member profiles and ensure they are invited to the right dinner groups).

“I have other commitments, so I need plenty of notice when I’m offered a Dinner Invitation”.  (At Tablemates, we offer our Dinner Invitations at least 10 days in advance.  If you accept, you are booked to attend.  No cancellations or filling seats at the last minute).

“I want an ongoing membership that’s reasonable, flexible and affordable”.  (At Tablemates, our memberships are ongoing, not just for a limited period.  You can suspend and re-activate yours at any time.  Our Membership Fee also offers better value because it includes a personal registration meeting at no extra cost).

“I want to know how often I can expect a Dinner Invitation”.  (At Tablemates, our member can reasonably expect a suitable Dinner Invitation every month or so on average throughout their membership).

About Tablemates.

Tablemates has been a successful dinner club for singles since 1994.  Since then, we have helped countless members form long-term relationships or friendships through our service. Our members are often time-poor and concerned about how they spend their leisure time and with whom.  Attention-to-detail and quality of service form the backbone of our business. We pride ourselves on being Melbourne’s premier dinner club by creating ongoing value for our members.

Since our inception 23 years ago, Tablemates have personally interviewed all members.  Approximately 30% of members join through referral and word-of-mouth. Our members meet in pre-organized dinner groups of six people to enjoy good food and good conversation – a relaxed, fun and easy opportunity to meet and get to know other singles.

What is the cost to join Tablemates?

We’re upfront and transparent about our fees, which are the most competitive of other Melbourne dinner clubs.

The Membership Fee payable once only is $295.  Your Booking Fee for each Dinner Invitation you attend is $35, (or 3 for $90 if prepaid). There are no other fees.  You pay the restaurant for whatever you order at our dinners.  Tablemates does not host or cater at the dinners.

We offer a fun, organised, quality, professional service that allows you to expand your circle of friends, meet new people outside your usual social circle, or meet a potential partner.  The great news is that we do all the work for you.
