I believe Joe was our server (maybe Jeff), and he was fantastic. We were seated in the back room. The food was excellent and our server made great drink recommendations. Every staff member that we encountered was super friendly! Overall, it was a wonderful experience!

It was great getting to experience the flavor of truly Mexican inspired cuisine . It was just very pricey, though the portion sizes were very large and satisfying. The ambience was good, wine was good, and the service was amazing. I would recommend it as a nice night out but be willing to spend a good amount.

Went for breakfast. Was very relaxed and nice. First cup of coffee tasted burnt, but when they refilled later, it was better. I had the breakfast burrito. It was delicious, but a little spicy for me (I’m a spice wimp) so I asked for sour cream and it was perfect—even dipping my patatas bravas! They should consider adding sour cream. My friend was only so-so on the chilaquiles. Even though it said crispy corn tortillas, we didn’t expect tortilla chips which is what it was. She said too many chips and not enough of the other good stuff that came with it. Overall, I really enjoyed it. Great quality ingredients done well.

The hosting staff and servers were courteous and attentive, and clearly explained the various specials and drink offerings. The menu has a wide variety of authentically-inspired dishes, with fresh takes on classic drinks to match. Both meals that we ordered held sizeable portions cooked as ordered. Overall, the experience was great.

Get the ribeye - it's delicious. The upscale Cuban food here is very good and unique. Not cheap, but still a decent value given the high quality. I recommend.

Our server, Nick, took great care to describe the features and answered all of our questions. All of our choices were absolutely unique and delicious. Nick was especially knowledgeable, enthusiastic, friendly, and witty which met the demeanor of our group perfectly. A fantastic experience that we continue to talk about.

Presentation and food quality were fine. Server was very helpful especially since my husband is not a "spicy" food fan. Our food still had heat, though; however, it was tolerable. Food was pricey-- we weren't enamored enough for a return trip. Fare would be great if you loved "heat" with nearly every dish.

We ate there on a Sunday during Brunch. My husband had the Carnitas Eggs Benedict and I had the Garbage Skillet. My husband thought the Carnitas Egg Benedict was good. I thought the Garbage Skillet was excellent. The coffee was very good. Our server was pleasant and attentive. Our cups were refilled often. I would definitely eat at Proximo again and definitely order the Garbage Skillet again. Delicious. The only negative thing I have to say is the noise level was a little high so it made it difficult to hear our server. I don't believe it is any more expensive than most specialty breakfasts. Also, keep in mind your eating downtown so it will be some what higher than eating fast food or close to the Interstate.

The restaurant was very cold temperature-wise. Perhaps it was due to the extreme cold outside and the walls of glass. The food was good as was the service; although our waitress was extremely soft spoken.

The food is PHENOMENAL. I had guava glazed salmon, which was accompanied with spicy rice and a cabbage relish I believe. It was the perfect balance! The guacamole is also incredible. Great service all around and I love the social vibe!!

I went there with my son and daughter in law for my birthday. It was our first time there and we all enjoyed everything. A notable dessert is the hibiscus lemon tart. It is really very good and more tart than sweet. Pleasant surprise. I will definitely go again.
