    Restaurant week menu - excellent food and experience - we've always enjoyed Proxi. But I have issues with how they snuck in significantly more charges than the $59 per person advertisement through additional charges for certain items on the list ($5 for the first course, $10 for the second course, and a whopping $20 for an item on the third course). So we are actually looking at a possible $94 menu - which is a significant jump up. I'd advise against this kind of surreptitious charges - as it left us paying significantly more than we had originally planned ($160 per person - restaurant week is supposed to be a deal - NOT a steal!). In addition, even for a party of 4 - they added in 20% tip (really - we should be able to decide how much we tip) and a 3% additional service charge.

    Service was very slow. Took 2 hrs for a 4 course meal, essentially every 30 min we would get a course. Waiter never asked if we wanted more drinks and maybe checked in 2 times over the course of 2-hrs. We had to ask a different waiter for our check.

    Went with 4 friends for the restaurant week menu. The first two appetizer courses were really good, with some interesting flavors. I really enjoyed the cauliflower, the dumplings and the mussels. The main dish unfortunately ruined the experience for me. A friend and I decided to share the salmon and the pork dish. The pork dish was good, I liked the flavor. But the portion was minuscule. It was the size of a starter. The salmon was a better portion (although still on the small side), but the flavor really wasn’t good. The chocolate and corn dessert were good, but I didn’t like coconut milk “tres leches”. As a table, we ordered two alcoholic beverages, and two non-alcoholic. Add taxes and tip, we paid just over 100 dollars per person. Overall, I’d say it wasn’t a great restaurant week deal and we left feeling a bit disappointed and not fully satiated.

    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!

    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.
