Overall food was delicious, definitely will be back. While the server was nice and knowledgeable about the food, he didn't check in with us when we needed a few things or when the table needed to be cleared. There was another server that did clear our table for us and checked in with us so we were glad for the additional help from him.

Of the five dishes we ordered, only the whole fried fish would be a repeat order. We were not impressed at all with the other food or service.

This is a beautiful restaurant with a cozy ambiance especially as we were seated in a lovely alcove away from the bustle of other tables. The service was very good but the plates, while tasty, are so very small, that even after spending quite a lot of money, we all left feeling unsatisfied and actually a bit hungry. That said, it was a fun experience.

Proxi offers a varity of elevated and modern takes on traditional dishes from around the world. They offer flavors from Mexico, India, Asia, and more. The food is delicious! The service is top notch, and the space is large enough that you can typically get a reservation without having to book too far in advance. It is not inexpensive, but then again, what is in the West Loop that is really good?

3rd time visiting Proxi and each time was better than the previous. Devon, front of the house manager (?), was gracious to our party and went above and beyond in ensuring our evening was enjoyable. Henry (sp?), our waiter, was super chill, had great recommendations, and made the dining experience superb. Drinks were tasty, too. Just a solid restaurant doing funky flavors at an exceptional level.

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.

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.
