There's multiple ways to take this.

"for"

This would imply that you and the other person / people (the "we") hoped that you could have dinner together. i.e. it was a group hope


"at" or "during"

This would imply that you hoped to meet somebody (for the first time) over dinner.

  • At is less common in my experience. Usually implies that it's a specific (known) dinner event
  • During can also mean that it's a longer dinner event, where you hoped to meet somebody during a cocktail / social hour.

"around"

This can be taken a number of ways, but I would probably take it to mean that you hoped to meet up with a group of people before dinner.


"about" "concerning" or "regarding" ...

This would imply that you hoped to meet with others in order to plan a dinner.
