How do I get started?

Just fill out the information request form or call us at 206.340.0100 to schedule a face-to-face interview. This interview will allow us determine if IJL Dinner Club is the right fit for your relationship goals.


What is IJL Dinner Club?

IJL Dinner Club is the intimate group dating division of It's Just Lunch Seattle. We arrange exclusive dinner parties for our members which consist of the Northwest's most eligible singles. Our matchmakers at IJL bring 4 single men and 4 single women together for an evening of delicious food, wine pairings and great conversation. Our clients are single, attractive & busy professionals who are interested in meeting like-minded individuals in a low-pressure and social atmosphere.


How does IJL Dinner Club match its clients?

We personally meet and vet each of our Dinner Party clients in a face-to-face interview. Our IJL Seattle Matchmakers then match the compatible group of singles together based on age, interests, background, lifestyle and attraction. 


When do the Dinner Parties take place?

Dinner Parties are held on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings in the private dining rooms of IJL's partnered restaurants in the greater Seattle area. Our restaurants offer a variety of dining choices to suit any appetite. 


What is the attire?

Our It's Just Lunch style experts recommend upscale casual attire. Our clients dress to impress and look at each dinner party as a special occasion.


How does the invite process work?

We email our clients 10 days prior to the event date with all of the details. The invite includes: the date, the restaurant location, the cost of the dinner, and the ice-breaker topic. Once you receive an invite you will have 48 hours to RSVP and let us know if you can attend.


What kind of restaurants can I expect?

IJL Dinner Club chooses the area's most popular restaurants. All Dinner Parties take place in our restaurants' private dining rooms and provide a broad range of menu selections and wine pairings.


What is the cost of each meal?

Once an individual signs up for a membership, they will be responsible for the cost of their dinners. The dinner will never exceed $100 and will include the 4-course dinner, wine pairings, tax and gratuity. All bills will be presented as separate checks at the end of the evening. 


What happens when I arrive at the restaurant?

Upon arrival, you will check in with the host/hostess as a guest for the IJL Dinner Party. They will then take you to the private dining room where you will be greeted by the evening's proctor and presented with your ice-breaker. After everyone arrives, be seated at your place-setting (yes, we arrange the seating!) for an evening of great food and excellent conversation to begin.


Is my information kept confidential?

Absolutely! We will never disclose last names, phone numbers, addresses or company names. Introductions made at Dinner Parties are by first name only. It is our client's responsibility to disclose any other personal information if they choose.


What if I Prefer One-on-One Matchmaking?

If you prefer meeting your match one-on-one instead of a group, It's Just Lunch Seattle will be more than happy to explore that option with you in our face-to-face interview.


Do you Offer Date Coaching?

Absolutely! We have a 4-part dating boot camp series that has resulted in hundreds of successful client relationships. Ask your matchmaker for the details.

The IJL Dinner Club is like being part of an exclusive singles social network!
