    Our server was fantastic. Food is always fresh and vibrant. However, this restaurant is divided into two experiences, main dining room and not. Today we were in-between the two, in a hallway with terribly bright lights. Our last visit, we were also placed to the overflow side. The ambience is poor and ruins the entire experience provided by the kitchen.

    ProximoResponded on November 14, 2022Hi there! We're definitely disappointed to read about your experience. Although we do have our private dining room (not over flow), we are concerned about where you would have been sat in a hallway. Please reach out to us at the information below enable for us to learn more about your experience and possible ambiance issues. We hope to hear from you and are able to fix these issues! :)

    The food was wonderful, and we had a vegan in our group, and the server offered helpful suggestions to ensure that she and everyone had what they would like. None of the listed desserts were vegan, so the chef came to our table and created a dessert especially for us, which was delicious. Wonderful night.

    Every now and then, one has the pleasure of a truly memorable dining experience. Proximo was precisely that! Aaron provided exceptional service with such thorough knowledge of the menu, excellent recommendations and impeccable service. Proximo offers unique, thoughtful and complex cocktails and food offerings. This is a definite “Do Not Miss!” for anyone who appreciates excellent food and service. We aim to return on our next trip to Fort Wayne!

    We’ve been to Proximo many times, both for occasions and casual meals. This time was less than stellar. The first problem was our waiter, Walker. He insisted on using the royal “we” and “us” throughout, disappeared to flirt with the hostess and gave disparaging looks regarding drink choices. As well, the vibe of the space seemed to have changed. It moved to a uncomfortable feel compared to other visits where we felt like family and it mainly dealt with the staff and how it seemed they were constantly huddling around and talking about customers and their personal lives compared to giving the best service. Just disappointing overall compared to other visits.

    Good location and very nice ambience. Perfect noise level to allow you to have a conversation without having to raise your voice. The service was excellent with very courteous staff who are knowledgeable of the menu. Portions are large. We split an appetizer and dinner entree between the two of us and had some left to take home. The food was appealing to look at and pretty tasty, my only complaint on the appetizer, crab chilequiles was the chips were mostly soggy and with the Ropa Vieja the steak was overcooked (in restaurants defense I did not say how I wanted it cooked and nor did they ask). They are very accomodating to make dishes Gluten Free for people with celiac or a wheat allergy and that is so refreshing! I would definitely go back and just offer how I wanted the steak cooked.

    We liked the evening a lot. We came with friends and my food order was great. The guac and chips was really good. My old fashion was a bit too sweet but was still very good. Our friend bought the special and it was fatty. They did it right and took it off the bill! I was impressed. My salmon was cook perfect. The table we had was backed up to a servers station so it was a bit loud. Overall great services and food. We will be back!!

    Amazing first time experience! My wife and I enjoyed sharing some amazing dishes and cocktails before a show. Waiter was wonderful and attentive.

    Columbian Ceviche was a hit! The basil adds a perfect touch. Solid dinner with the Chimichurri ribeye and the pork chop. Their churros are also very good as a sweet bite after dinner.
