the food was really good, the service was pretty slow but it is also a pandemic so I imagine staffing is not the same as it usually is. I recommend every single small plate, they're all great.

This was my welcome to Chicago dinner with a few close friends. The value for the money at Proxi is off the charts. Food and cocktails were amazing, or amazing server brought us a welcome glass of sparkling wine, and the entire evening was so far above expectations. Luckily I live around the block and fully intend on becoming a regular. When the bill came, our jaws dropped. To be so satisfied with the food and drinks, it was insanely affordable. COVID protocols were strictly enforced and we all felt very safe eating here- the staff goes above and beyond. Thank you for making my welcome dinner so special!

The last night before the end of indoor seating, so we were lucky to get a reservation. The restaurant took every precaution for safety. My SO had the Back to the 80's cocktail, that she said was delicious. I had a whiskey from their nice selection. If you like small plates with a twist, then you should head to Proxi. The service was great. Would highly recommend. We will be back.

Proxi is very well designed, creating a great ambiance and mood. The music ranged in style, in a good way, and wasn't too loud. The gin cocktails were delicious and the social distancing, as well as other COVID-19-related measures were thoughtful. The cauliflower and mussels were both to die for.

Visited in October 2020. We had to dine inside due to the weather. The staff was very cautious due to Covid and our table was far from any other guests. We enjoyed a great meal and a very knowledgeable server. Interesting and well prepared food and drinks. Look forward to going back again!

The food was excellent and so was the presentation. Service was good BUT I was really annoyed by the restaurant’s refusal to accept payment by cash, even when I required no change to be given. I found that to be absurd, COVID or no COVID...

Proxi offers truly delicious fusion (American food with Asian interpretation or vice verca). The chef’s interpretation of fusion seems based on his deep understanding of each cuisine. His creativeness is refreshing and yet not excessive. Not one of those “interesting but does not taste really good”. Truly delicious and interesting. Ambience is modern and simple and gives you upscale feel as well. Cocktails were flavorful and gorgeous. Totally recommended. 100% corona safety measures and social distancing being practiced as well. Cheers.

Always one of my favorites to visit when in town along with big sister Michelin Star dining venue - Sepia. Outstanding different separate venue concepts. Mr. Emmanuel Nony is the very personable and accommodating establishment proprietor. One of the few Chicago restaurant venues that make a true commitment to a world class beverage and wine program with curated diverse globally regional representations of the best and most desirable bottlings as vintages not seen at most so called fine ding establishments. Jennifer Wagoner is one of regions most accomplished, knowledgeable and creative selections. Very personable with impeccable wine service. Highly recommended!!
