    I went to proxi with my boyfriend last night and was not disappointed. I’ve been before and ordered a la carte, but this time we choice the set menu. Everything we had was amazing and well thought out.

    I don’t think the portions are for sharing . I requested a portion of rice to share. It was brought 1 very small scoop, to be shared for 5 people. Please don’t say Proxi has food to be shared .if we were 5 people , why bring 4 pieces to be shared ? I was disappointed,

    Had heard a lot about this restaurant, so maybe the expectations were high. Didn’t think it was worth the hype. The food was ok. Potion sizes were just about enough for two.

    We did the chef menu and although I don’t regret going, I would not recommend or go again for that menu specifically. Some of the dishes were not very good and for the price, the portion sizes were not it. The service and ambience was very good

    The food & ambience was spectacular! Service was poor; it said on Menu that the tasting required 2 but when we went to order at our table of four, they would not allow two guest to do tasting, they said all guests had to, very disappointing. And our waiter seemed intimidated to go ask a few questions we had.

    Fine dining without all the stuffiness. Beautiful textures, international food styles, robust flavors, and great presentation. It was also delicious. Elegant (in ambience and price point) but an oh-so-nice way to treat a friend or business colleague. I will definitely return!

    Proxi is better than ever. No wonder they survived when others in the area haven't. Worth a walk away from the craziness of Randolph or Fulton to enjoy a really great meal. Three of us shared the Scallop crudo, duck with scallion pancake, Wagyu beef cheeks (affordable alternative), black cod, roasted broccoli. May seem like a lot of food, but was perfect for the three of us. Even left room for a creative fried apple pie. Service was attentive even on a very busy night. And, our server, Kevin, couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Proxi will definitely remain on my favorites list.

    Proxi takes the amazing dining experience at Sepia and elevates it to perfection. As a lover of dining out, I usually obsess with analysis and opinion on every detail or taste...but here Proxi (with the Tasting Menu) surprises you and your senses with combinations of the best of ingredients that need no effort to understand...you just enjoy the visual, texture and taste of every course. The varied textures and flavors that are presented make it hard to answer the wait staff's question "what was your favorite dish (of the 7 or 8 courses) as each was a favorite. The proprietor's interest in your experience is shared by each staff and person you interact with making the experience a welcoming social and food experience not to be missed and soon to be enjoyed by us again.

    Very average. Menu too eclectic without any theme. Service was uneven at best. Late to bring wine. Ordered coffee at dinner but they gave me tab, didn’t give me coffee, then said they were getting it (after giving me the tab which did not have the coffee in it). If server just said sorry I forgot then it would have been better. Won’t go back.

    Great looking room, average service, okay food. Not offensive in any way, but not a place we'd rush back to. A good solution when you need a last-minute reservation and can't get in other places.

    I took a friend to Proxi for her birthday, and it was wonderful. We had the prix fixe, four-course meal, and there were several great options to choose from for each of the courses. Each dish was delicious and the staff did a terrific job of making the occasion feel special. The wine selections were terrific, too. We would definitely love to do it again!

    Proxi has great flavors and great service when at the restaurant. The only drawback was that I made my reservation a few weeks in advance for out of town guests. The day of the reservation I wanted to move it up a half hour. Checked on-line and there was availability, but Open Table would not let me change it the day of without calling the restaurant. Since Proxi does not answer the phones before 4:30, that earlier time was grabbed by a new on-line reservation and would not accommodate my change over the phone. That's not a customer-friendly way to treat an existing reservation.
