    Proxi used to be one of our favorite restaurants pre pandemic. We went there post pandemic about a month ago and it is still as amazing as it used to be. The food is superb and so is the service! Love the high ceilings and the ambiance.

    Diverse menu and chef modified some dishes to meet my dietary (no-diary) requests. Had a large group (8) and just asked them to "feed us" with their favorites. Outstanding. Server was great, as was the back-waiter staff. H

    Every dish besides the lentil dumpling was amazing, well plated and well seasoned. Server was very slow and inattentive, cocktails were taking 15 minutes to reach the table and it wasn’t that busy. He seemed to have too large a section without proper support which is the fault of the Maitre d’. However he wasn’t properly pacing orders in association with the wine pairing and this was evident in neighboring tables as well. Back servers/runners were confused and brought the wrong dish and setup multiple times. Training on timing would be useful and it was a shame because the food an ambiance were fantastic and I hoped for much better service on our anniversary dinner.

    Booked a last minute reservation outdoors. Even though the cross streets are pretty busy, the outdoor dining on the sidewalk felt secluded. Great food and service.

    I hadn't been back to Proxi since it had opened and was happy to see it still drawing a crowd. The service was warm and welcoming, it was a perfect night to dine outdoors, and the food - 2 of us did the chef menu w/o pairings - 1 ordered both a lamb small plate and lamb entre, and we shared everything. The food was fantastic. Definately order to Botanist gin & tonic...a great start to a great evening w/ friends.

    The cocktail I ordered was just okay, but not worth the price. It didn't have any flavor. The server spoke quickly and it was a bit difficult to hear everything he was saying. The decor and interior was very nice and overall it was an enjoyable meal.

    Great restaurant! Love the chefs menu - you can try 10 dishes for a very reasonable price! The salmon salad was phenomenal. The only thing I would change is the order of the dishes - because after the spicy stuff, you can't taste the more delicate flavors. The staff was very nice and accommodating!

    Great food, but portions very small, forcing one to order a lot of dishes. Desserts are not the strong suit of this restaurant and would give them a miss. Nice wine lost with inexpensive choices. A little expensive given small portions, but would return.

    To state love of a restaurant is an understatement. The food is consistently phenomenal and interesting and changing. The atmosphere is really gorgeous but also very comfortable. The cocktails are amazing and the gin & tonics are not to be missed. One of the best restaurants in Chicago, and l think it remains heavily underrated for the flavors it offers to diners.

    Overpriced for the quality, portions, and especially the service. Server and staff were slow, inattentive, and paid no attention to those little details that make going out relaxing and fun (discussion of menu, refilling water glasses, taking dirty plates away, etc).

    Beautiful restaurant, incredible dishes, great service and ambiance! Well curated courses from the chef's menu. The duck with scallion pancake was our favorite! Everything came out at a perfect pace. Portions were perfectly rounded out between a few larger/ few smaller. Not too much or too little food. Really appreciate the wonderful experience we received for a goodbye dinner before my sister moves out of the country. Thank you Proxi!

    Overall, the experience was mostly positive. That said, we were there for a special occasion, and, despite this, the restaurant staff made a point of repeatedly stressing that we’d have to be out at a strict deadline and therefore the entire process felt somewhat rushed. Similarly, we were quite crammed-in next to closely-seated guests in a very loud environment — not ideal for such a special occasion. This is absolutely not how I would treat guests who selected my restaurant for a once-in-a-year occasion. The food, while quite good, was still rather overpriced in the end. Ultimately, I doubt we’ll be going back…

    Was super excited for this place as it is tied to one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago, Sepia. Unfortunately Proxi is a miss, service was fine but seemed our section maybe was an afterthought? Delays in new drinks being brought over, noticed a couple tables over seemed to be waiting longer than I'd expect to close out their check, at another table the guests seemed to be looking around as if needing assistance. Space is beautiful but I don't believe they were admiring it. Strangely, one support staff member was overly attentive in removing items from the table. Went the a la carte option, octopus was the biggest disappointment and overcooked perhaps? Tempura elotes were solid, tater tot dish was meh in flavor and looked a bit overly garnished to where is looked more like a sloppy mess, scallop crudo was meh along with several other dishes. Horchata flan... while fine, should be renamed because I missed the horchata part and I missed the flan part. More like a goopy vanilla bean panna cotta but even then a panna cotta would be offended associated with it. Pudding maybe? Perhaps that is why it was served in a bowl? Cincinnati Jake cocktail was the highlight of the evening.

    Another mouth watering array of choices on the menu at Proxi. The blend of flavors and textures in the different dishes are treats fir the palate. The cod was cooked to perfection and the Flan dessert converted me who is not normally a Flan fan.

    Very interesting meal. The beet salad was my least favorite, as I didn't like the grapefruit and the cashew butter didn't seem to be incorporated. The Bahn Khot was delicious. I loved the sauce which was sweet with a bit of heat. The shrimp gave a good bite. The mussels sauce was phenomenal and I loved soaking the sourdough in it. However several of the shells had no mussels. The coconut curry custard was delicious and creamy. Finally I ended the meal with green curry ice cream sundae that packed a nice heat on the back of your tongue, but was so creamy and refreshing.
