    Outstanding food, pan world cuisine with a heavy Asian bent. Attractive techno ambience with loud music to augment the vibe. Not a place for conversation but the food is so good you don’t want to stop to talk anyway.

    Food was pretty good, but significantly compromised by the super slow service, not the fault of our server who is very nice but seems that the kitchen was not able to put out the food in a timely manner. They also neglected to realize I had put in a comment that it was my 11 year old daughter‘s birthday…

    Small plates, globally inspired, exquisitely executed. Not everyone loved everything but everyone had favorites. I loved the lamb chops, tempura elote, and the flan was amazing unlike any flan I’ve had before.

    We give our experience a 10! We had a party of 4….. two couples just spending a night out together. Our friends had never been and absolutely loved everything. The current menu was reminiscent of their diet and times in India…. Which sparked a lot of memories for them and we loved hearing the stories! Everything we ordered was packed with flavor! We love Proxi!

    For adventuresome diners who want to explore unique and flavorful dishes, Proxi is the place. There are three size dishes and picking one from each size is the suggestion. Though in the end it can be a bit pricey, it is well worth it. The sauces and marinades are packed with mouth watering flavor and high quality meats, fish and poultry are used. The crowd is varied in terms of age but the atmosphere is casual but cool with comfortable yet upscale furnishing that create just the right mood for couples or groups.

    Cute concept, liked the vibe and the service. The food overall did not blow me away, had duck egg rolls, octopus, scallops and lamb chops. The octopus is delicious, everything else was just ok. Would give it a second try and explore some of the other options on the menu

    The food is interesting and the service was nice. However, the level of noise is way to high. It is impossible to talk with the people at your table. The music is too loud. Tables are too close to one another.

    As a person with dietary restrictions due religious reasons, all I can say is DO NOT COME HERE. I have never felt as unwelcome as I have here. I was very upfront about my restrictions, however, the way the chef handled the situation was quite inappropriate - “what else…” is the response I received when asked a question about a dish. The food was amazing up until the moment where I deviated from the menu. I would never recommend anyone with any dietary restriction to go to Proxi because they are condescending and outright disrespectful towards religious views. This is the second time I have felt this way at this restaurant.

    We came during Chicago Restaurant Week on a whim and it honestly exceeded our expectations. The staff were so friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend sitting at the counter by the kitchen. It’s like getting a dinner and a show. The staff operates so smoothly, it’s like watching a ballet. We walked out the door already planning on when to come back!

    Came here with a friend to enjoy restaurant week. We tried to reserve at Sepia but it was completely booked. Not sure why Proxi wasn't as the food here is quite good. Henry was very helpful at wine and supplemental suggestions. Although it was a fixed price menu, it was a lot of food. Essentially there were 3 dishes each in the first 2 courses, but then we added a supplemental dish (yellow curry) to our second course. For my main I got the Korean hot pot, and then there were 2 desserts. We shared everything, but I could hardly eat the hot pot because I was saving room for the dessert. The lamb dumplings and roasted carrots were my favorite. The desserts were also tasty (my preference is the chocolate opera cake. If you like dry and bold reds, the Cotes du Rhone and Rioja were very nice. Although I paid more than I wanted to, you don't leave hungry and this is a great way to try a lot of options and feel you got your money's worth.
