Great menu, the carrot salad was amazing. Valet was kind enough to park my car right outside the door so I could escape quickly to an event.

Creative menu, professional and polite server, and the small plates were spaced out perfectly to keep us both happy and not overstuffed. Excellent for vegans and GF eaters, too! The atmosphere is spacious, not too loud, and it was almost full when we were there for 3 hours on a Friday night. Well worth a visit, and I would definitely go again.

Horrible hosstess and staff!! Not courteous and forgot about our table!! Didn’t seat us and when asked they didn’t answer. The waiter didn’t show up and had to call the manager. The response was bad. Altogether bad experience. The hostess and greeters are very rude and don’t know what are they doing

The flavors of Proxi are life changing. So much so that we find it hard to leave and return to our normal lives having no clue how to recreate such witchcraft in our own kitchen. We make the trip from Wisconsin at least once a year to keep us inspired!

Some of the food options we got were pretty good, while most were painfully average. The scallops were outstanding.

Our server was wonderful! He was knowledgeable, timely, and pleasant.

Ambience was just like every other wanna-be-fancy restaurant in river north or west loop.

Plates were terribly expensive, given the quality and portion size.

Staff, both at the bar and in the restaurant, were knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. Service of food was timed well. The restaurant has a great selection of foods from various cuisines, often prepared with a fresh take on their preparation. The food was delicious. But — the restaurant was noisy, even at a table furthest away from the bar. Tables were too close to one another. Not a place to go for a private conversation. All and all a thumbs up.

Overall a nice experience. The chef definitely has a preference for fish sauce and the food can be salty. There were some some highlights and lowlights. The beets and crispy crepe were lovely. The duck salad was flavorful. The carrots were the most disappointing and the whole fish was lukewarm. On the positive side the service was very good so we will still recommend it.

Wine list is too short; no French wines! Too bad.
Also, noise level is very high

I highly recommend Proxi. A smallish menu but I like it because they still have great variety and what they do they do VERY well. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. The kitchen was a bit backed up on a busy Saturday night. It I appreciated them being open about it. Will def return!

For vegetarians there are very few options to get anything close for a decent dinner.
We ordered everything on the vegetarian menu and some items twice but did not feel it was enough. Portions were tiny.

The food was extremely tasty. We ordered the number of dishes recommended by our server which turned out to be not nearly sufficient. We all left the restaurant hungry. For the prices charged for these dishes, the portion sizes should be more generous. Would definitely not return or recommend this restaurant

Very modern atmosphere for a date night. Great service. The drinks are delicious, especially the "meet me at the tiki bar" drink. We ordered six different dishes, all small plates, and loved every dish. New favorite restaurant. A must try!

Food was great and our server was clearly overwhelmed. Got sat and waited honestly 10 min after water service for our waitress to come over. And when she finally came over all she said was “Do you know what you want to drink?” Just expected more considering the venue. I’m also a server and easy to take care of but she definitely needed help or just didn’t care about my table. No food descriptions, no asking us if we’ve been here before. As a server myself I was wondering why I should tip her when she literally did nothing but take my order.
