    We took advantage of visiting Proxi for the first time during Restaurant Week. Pretty much every dish was excellent! Several small portions of their dishes were available on the Restaurant Week menu, and all were complex, varied and delicious. Service was perfect and loved the ambiance. Just the right level of music. Overall, an excellent introduction to Proxi.

    Fabulous food. Horrible service. Paid for wine pairings and weren’t given what was on wine list and never got one of rounds. Terrible communication on the change - had to ask twice and the server seems confused on wine pairings. Gave us dessert pairing after we already finished. Server never checked in and gave himself a 20% tip on a party under 6. Spent $200 on good dinner with sub par service. Not acceptable for price point. Andrew Zimmerman deserves better servers for his fantastic food. Needs to retrain servers and keep making great food.

    This was our 4th visit to Proxi in the past few months - and truly the best yet. We delighted in another experience with the Chef's Menu - a wonderful opportunity to explore a range of foods - including a first melt-in-your- mouth experience with wagyu beef. Our server, Ivan, was well-informed snd quite helpful in guiding our choices. The noise level was lively, but not overbearing. Even though we were there on a busy Saturday night, we were never rushed. Proxi has quickly become one of our favorite Chicago restaurants!

    Our meal wasn't paced properly - everything basically came out in quick succession. Service team tried to clear plates while we were still working on them. Several dishes came out cold and weren't flavorful.

    Courses terribly spaced, waiter vanished for most of the night, service was a disaster. You cannot space small plates so far apart for a group of 3, we basically each got a bite of the previous dish and waited 20-30 minutes for the next. Yes, they came out one at a time, including pickled vegetables which makes no sense. We contemplated cancelling our remaining courses to leave early because it was evident the kitchen/servers had no regard for customers that night. We made the mistake of sitting through the a-la carte until the end, mainly because we couldn't flag down our waiter in time. Chicago is full of excellent food and Proxi is not worth your time or money.
