                        This was my first dinner experience at Proximo's after a few lunches. I didn't think that they could top the lunch fare but they knocked the dinner out of the park. My neighbor and I each had something different just to have a chance to see more of a selection. Absolutely everything was fantastic ! Can't wait to go back.

                        Phenomenal as usual! Rather sitting at the bar being served by Chontel, Parker, or Alex or sitting in the dining area the service is always top notch!

                        It was a great dinner! I love their Chicken Tortilla soup and had a yummy margarita! I think the staff at Proximo is so nice. Oh and the chocolate cake is delicious!!

                        I made some small requests for my partner’s birthday, and not only did they deliver, but they also got her a birthday card and they all signed it! Beyond impressed, I’m blown away. Absolutely stunning atmosphere. Would go back in a heart beat!

                        Overall the experience was fine. The atmosphere, service and location are great. The food was good but for the price needs to be elevated in flavor s and presentation to be justified. There are new places popping up with the same or lower price point but with a way better palette experience.

                        I booked a table at Proximo for our anniversary dinner. The food was superb. Our servers were so friendly and helpful. They made excellent recommendations. This was the best meal we have had in Fort Wayne. Proximo is the best restaurant in Fort Wayne and they proved it to us.

                        Food was cold. When I asked the waitress for hollandaise sauce, she went to the kitchen area and came PAST my table to get water for guests that just sat down.

                        This is a very nice restaurant My wife and I have been there several times and usually really enjoy it. However, we were a little disappointed in the food and the value this time. My wife doesn’t like seafood. There have always been a good variety of non-seafood options in the past. This time her options were very limited. The prices have also increased dramatically since the last time we were there about six months ago. Since she couldn’t bring herself to spend $61 for a steak, she opted for the Cuban chicken. I had the braised lamb shank. The Cuban chicken was moist, but had very little flavor. The rice it came with was also a little bland. The braised lamb shank was amazing! But the combination of sides didn’t seem to accompany it well. I thought the pickled onions made it s taste sort of strange. We both also got the chicken tortilla soup and both thought it tasted bland and lackluster. Based on our past experiences at Proximo, we were not prepared for bland and lackluster tasting food. If this had been our first time, we probably wouldn’t be back. Since we’ve been there several other times, all with excellent results, we will be back.

                        Drinks took quite a while to come out, even though the restaurant was half empty. Our appetizer was quickly taken away without asking, even though there wasn't much left.

                        We had an excellent experience. We went for lunch and the food, staff, and atmosphere was great. We haven't been there in a while so it's a nice reminder to go more often.
