i-SPY Mystery Shopper Testimonials 

I pursued working with i-SPY hospitality due to my love of restaurants. Having worked in the hospitality industry I enjoyed the challenge of observing the many details that entail eating at a restaurant. Marc is specific with directions and expectations. He is not giving away free meals and the work that is asked of mystery shoppers is within reason. I’m sure his clients are appreciative of his approach. I recommend this company with my all.


I got to dine at restaurants I would not have visited. Marc responds quickly to mystery shop reports and questions. I received payments quickly. Scheduling and rescheduling is flexible. Working with Marc and i-SPY hospitality was a wonderful experience, and I’m disappointed that I’m not able to do it longer because my real work schedule got in the way. If I had the choice, I would prefer to keep dinning at these fabulous restaurants!


I have been working with Marc Kravitz and i-SPY for nearly two years. The meals I’ve gotten to enjoy have been outstanding – these are restaurants I would not normally have gone to. Mystery shopping has been a pleasant experience.

As a culinary enthusiast and an avid restaurant-goer, I’m fortunate to be a part of the i-SPY mystery shopping hospitality team.

This has been a positive and unique experience that has made me appreciate dining at many types of restaurants when I’m not “spying.” i-SPY hospitality allows me the opportunity to eat at some terrific places, while opening my eyes to all that goes into the restaurant experience. Marc is always available to answer questions and offer feedback, something that not all CEO’s are apt to do.

Mystery shopping at i-SPY has been a great experience. I love dining at some of the best restaurants in my area and writing honest feedback on the service and food! While the reports can be lengthy, it is satisfying to write a quality report that captures my dining experience.


This has been a dream job for me! I get to go with friends to the area’s best restaurants and try different dishes for free. I’ve strengthen my writing and making some extra money.


I’m able to go to different restaurants, many finer dining ones. The dining experiences are very good. Food and beverage expenses are covered, and a stipend provided. Mystery shopper reports are detailed. There may be editing or questions to clarify aspects of my experience or food descriptions. Marc is flexible with scheduling assignments. If you are detail oriented, you get the hang of the report requirements after a few trials.


Over the past two years, I’ve had many meals with friends at some of the best restaurants in the area for free. Experiencing new cocktails, menu items, and trendy venues is fun. The instructions for the mystery shops are detailed. Marc is almost always available to answer my questions or concerns. Scheduling is flexible. I’m reimbursed for the meal (on average $150-$250), plus paid $15. Payment usually comes the next week.


I have been mystery shopping with i-SPY for 10 years. Marc’s approach to mystery shopping is much more professional than his competitors. I hold myself to high standards in my work. Marc’s clients pay for a professional service, and he expect his shoppers to produce a professional report. You’re not going to get rich working as a secret shopper. I find this enjoyable and challenging. Marc has never treated me negatively. His clients use the reports to improve service and meal quality. When I go to an establishment that offers a fine dining experience, I want to enjoy my experience. Working with a company like i-SPY makes sure others can enjoy their dining experience. I receive the full amount of money promised and on time. Sometimes reports take two hours to write.


I’ve worked for Marc at i-SPY for over two years now and mystery shop some amazing restaurants. The reports have to be on point and detailed. I’ve never have an issue with payment. I do what is expected and I don’t have issues.


I’ve worked with Marc Kravitz and i-SPY almost two years now as a mystery shopper and enjoy my experience. I’ve completed over 100 assignments and find the instructions clear. Marc creates a calendar a quarter at a time, which is convenient for planning my schedule. He is very flexible — if anything comes up at my full-time job or in my personal life, it is never a problem to reschedule an assignment. Marc mails a check within days. i-SPY’s clients are some of the best in Philadelphia, including restaurants I would only go to for a special occasion. I get to treat family and friends to a wonderful meal and night out. Sometimes these meals cost $300 — not bad compensation! Marc has high standards, and I imagine the reports are useful to his clients.


I have worked as a freelance mystery shopper for i-SPY since 2014. Reports are more time-consuming than other mystery shopping companies I have worked with. i-SPY pays a higher fee than other companies for comparable assignments and I receive payment and reimbursement much faster. Marc Kravitz (the owner) is personable and flexible. I have had to reschedule assignments many times and Marc is more than accommodating. He gives constructive feedback after reports. As a teacher, I am subject to observations by supervisors. I enjoy working for i-SPY and love the restaurants Marc assigns me to each month.


I get to write restaurant reviews at cool restaurants. Detailed instructions. Quick payment.
We get to eat at expensive restaurants ($200+).
