I'm surprised by all the negative reviews and, quite honestly, some of the issues pointed out don't seem to fall on the shoulders of Dinnerly. I've been using this service weekly for quite a few months now. Overall I am more than pleased. Although the article states limited delivery to what appears to be the Western region of the US; I am in the Northeast and receive my deliveries (with FedEx tracking) on Tuesdays. I have had two deliveries with an issue (missing items and less than stellar produce item). Upon receipt of these deliveries I just hopped on the instant chat feature that is available on their webpage, both full site and mobile. I immediately received a friendly reply that more...

After ordering Dinnerly for the first time, the box came with only two meals and not three meals which I had order, the ingredients for the two meals had spilled into the box, which caused a mess, overlooking that, the cold slaw was brown and smelled bad, the flour tortillas had been crushed, and the only thing that I was able to keep was the ground turkey and chicken breasts, when I let Dinnerly know about the situation, I was told that on my next order, I would receive a discount for the one dinner that did not come, and a further discount on the items that had gone bad, why would I want to buy this product again, with no guarantees, that I would receive the same terrible, when asked if...

You cannot stop delivery immediately after signing up. I chose the box size, gave credit card info and only then saw the extremely limited menu choices. Anyone with sugar or salt issues will have a problem. Tried to substitute and three other meals offered were high in sugar and salt as well. My point: tried to cancel first shipment after ONE minute, and I cannot. Says "Delivery in progress". I canceled further shipments but am stuck paying for meals that I cannot eat. Either allow people to cancel within X minutes of meal selection on signup or show choices BEFORE credit card info given and you are locked in. NOT happy.

This company is horrible I would not recommend you order from them. I haven't received one meal that I paid for. They don't send shipping tracking info so you have no idea where your shipment is. Customer service is terrible. After many attempts to find out what's happened I haven't received an answer. I cancelled the service after paying for 2 weeks and not getting a response. Emailed CEO which is an option when you cancel and again never got my expected delivery or response. There phone systems aren't set up correctly you get disconnected after you wait for a few minutes. No one is around all weekend so if you don't get your Friday shipment..... you met get a response...

I'm single and usually cooking just for myself. I'm also an "adventurous" eater. I cook from Dinnerly quite often. The ingredients are sourced from the same providers as those for Marley Spoon and are excellent. One meal in each week's worth of recipes usually requires the addition of a green salad or other vegetable to round it out. Also, I add herbs to some recipes that would otherwise be a bit bland for me. Even with those additions, the value is still quite good and the convenience is priceless. I still belong to Marley Spoon and Blue Apron, and when I don't like what Dinnerly's featuring, I'll usually order from one of them instead.
