Went to dinner here with another couple who are close friends. Loved the meal, interesting combination of ingredients, service, ambiance. Very eclectic menu, small shareable tapas type portions and experience. Will definitely be back!

Food is amazing! Cocktails also amazing. Very interesting and encompassing wine list. Will visit again. Food service was excellent but a little slow despite being aware that we needed to be out at a certain time for a show. Server was friendly and knew the menu very well and was able to offer some great suggestions on food and drink.

When the flavors are this exciting it’s a special meal.

Though it’s a large room, it wasn’t at all loud making it a lovely place for dinner. The food is so delicious, each plate surprises you. Great service and great chef.

Can’t wait to go back

It was just okay. We tried 5 dishes and 2 were really good. The corn pancake and lamb were great. The steak, dessert, and shrimp buns were a let down.

One of the best dining experiences we’ve ever had! The braised pork shoulder from the chefs menu was amazing and Ivan was an amazing server. Portions were much bigger than expected which was great - we left full and happy. Will definitely be back!

Another wonderful meal at Proxi. I had the Cod with rice. It was delicious. My dinner mate had the whole fish served with Bibb lettuce to make wraps. It was also delicious. We stopped by before the Opera and this was a perfect meal.

Why don’t you utilize better serving plates? The portions are not tapas, they are just small. Service was not good. Waiter kept forgetting our order for drinks etc. Was pretty disappointing.

Everything was okay, nothing great. Service was fine. Food was good, but many dishes were overly sweet. Not a lot of innovation on the menu. Wine list was disappointing. Probably better to go for a beer. Good "street" food in a comfortable setting. The pricing was about right for the food, ambience and service. It would not be top of my list of restaurants to go to again.

We tried some of the newer dishes, which turned out to be excellent. This included the Savoy Cabbage, Paneer and Vegetable Kofta and Pork Collar. I also don’t know any other restaurant in Chicago that carries whiskeys from Redwood Empire, an excellent distillery.

The food was a bit overrated. It was decent, but nothing I would go back for. They did give us a complementary champagne toast for our wedding, which we appreciated!

I rarely if ever write reviews, but this was one of the worst dinner experiences I have ever had. We paid for the $60 per person tasting menu and every dish was really bad, actually it was awful. We requested some partial refunds at the end, reducing the $750 bill for 6 people.
