Braised Pork Belly was so good I almost ordered more even though we were full. Tempura Elotes were also a pleasant surprise. Everything was delicious.

Ambiance was chic and aesthetic was stunning! We had several drinks that weere really tasty. Food portions were so small. Only reason I give it 4 stars is because of the price points for such small plates.

The deep fried fish was excellent. The Thai beef was great. The pan cera was so so. And the shrimp pancakes were not good. Under cooked and gummy in the center with sub standard micro shrimp.

Delicious good in a beautiful restaurant. The Tempura Elotes and Khao Soi Noodles were outstanding and my husband was in heaven with his smoked lamp chops. I would definitely return here and recommend people try. A Chicagoan told me about this place and said sitting at the chef's table is a must-do experience here as well. Only downside was the price for a glass of wine was steep- $16 for a glass of Chardonnay and not a great pour. However, the food and overall experience was great.

This was our third visit to Proxi in about 6 weeks. We cannot say enough good things about the food. Last night, we had 5 courses, each creative, beautifully presented, and superbly spiced. The trumpet mushrooms, with tofu, vegetables, and broth over rice is superb. As is the roasted asparagus. The mackerel (which is not a fish everyone might go for) is beautifully spiced and we recommend people give this preparation a try. We also had small, crispy pancakes with shrimp and other goodies on top - a real treat that we will order again. We ended the meal with mango sorbet with a crispy cookie - just perfection. Our server Fernando was attentive and friendly and we appreciated the welcome from the restaurant manager. We can't wait to return. Thank you for a wonderful meal.

The service really stood out to me--staff was accommodating and friendly and overall amazing! The food was good, wasn't a huge fan of the coconut milk pancake shrimp bites though. I did not feel great when I got home and not sure if it was the strange food combos I had. The drink I had was Field Notes, and it was divine. I'd recommend a friend to try this place out but not sure I'll return any time soon. Maybe some day.

A great place to share several of the plates. Every plate brought to the table went back empty. Chefs are serious about their food. Service is very friendly and efficient.

Always amazing food at Proxi. Made a last minute reservation for a much needed night out and we’re not disappointed. Awesome experience and good you definitely can’t make at home. We’ve been about 8 times since it opened and will be back often

This is a wonderful spot to grab a small plate or a full meal. Menu is varied so everyone is happy.
Drinks are expertly crafted and you're always made to feel welcome. Service is friendly, attentive, but never intrusive.
I'm certainly looking forward to my next visit to Proxi.
