    Superseded our expectations and more! From the decor, to the ambiance, to the PHENOMENAL food--this was a home run for us. We went with the chefs menu and are so glad we did. We got to try some of everything and each dish felt like you were transported to another place in the world. Drinks are super tasty, the service is awesome and we didn't feel rushed between courses. We left with smiles on our faces and bellys full! Honesty worth every penny and every bite :) We will be back (Arnold Schwarzenegger voice)

    Service was friendly, timely, and helpful. The food was fantastic. Only one dish I didn’t care for but that, I believe, was more preference than quality. Definitely will return.

    My sister and I sat at the Chefs Table and had Jordan as our seever and had the BEST TIME! Jordon was very knowledgeable and fun! The tasting menu was incredible and was enough to fill us both up. I would definitely recommend Proxi to anyone and everyone! Great job!

    I was disappointed with this restaurant for the price point. Be aware that the $65/pp chef's tasting menu includes lost of additional costs depending on what you order. Our bill for X2 tasting menu, 3 drinks total, and tip was over $250! Given the steep price I would also have expected better food - some of the small plates were ok, but nothing exceptional. Service was also just ok, with a long wait to request the check.

    Place is busy. The tasting menu was delicious, though timing to each dish was not taken into account. Served too many dishes at once without time to enjoy the others, making cooking times obsolete and dessert melted.

    I loved my experience at Proxi! It was the perfect place to have a relaxed gathering with friends and worth the long trip to downtown Chicago. We had to wait longer than we would have liked to get our orders taken and received, but otherwise, we had a great time. The staff was kind and helpful.

    The food at Proxi is always phenomenal. the only disappointing part was doors were open to the patio and cigarette smoke was coming through the room. We sat on the back wall towards the bathroom so we might have just been in the draft of it but it was pretty constant for the last 30 minutes of our meal. My only suggestion is to have no smoking enforced while the doors are open in the summer

    We loved the food but the service was not good. We were seated promptly and water came very fast but then we sat there with menus for a long time. So long that I had to get up and ask if the waiter knew we were there. The waiter was having a hard time so someone started to help him so it got better but not great. Food was really tasty. We had the elote fritters, curry custard with carb meat and strip steak. IMO the steak was medium instead of medium rare but my husband disagreed. I felt it was a tad over cooked. Would not go back unless service improved

    This is the worst restaurant experience I've ever had! We were seated at 6:30, and no one came to take our order until 6:50, so I informed the reception about the situation and it wasn't addressed with no apology. The service was terrible with waiters hardly paying any attention to us since they are busy focusing on larger groups with the greed for larger checks/tips. I would not recommend this place for couples/dates. Never going back to this place again.

    Regulars at Proxi. The food is consistently among the best you can find in Chicago. On this particular visit the scallop ceviche and beef tartare stood out. The Oregon Pinot they have by the glass is great and a bargain. Not too noisy even when packed.

    Chef was a total jerk, standing with his arms crossed and scowling - made it uncomfortable to be at the counter. Food was below average for the prices. Good luck to the team. Must be a difficult atmosphere to be part of.

    Food was pretty good, but significantly compromised by the super slow service, not the fault of our server who is very nice but seems that the kitchen was not able to put out the food in a timely manner. They also neglected to realize I had put in a comment that it was my 11 year old daughter‘s birthday…
