Came here with our family and the ambience was inviting. Although some of the seafood was overcooked at first, they immediately rectified the situation generously and the second paella was amazing. We found the staff very courteous and professional and we will come back.

We are huge fans and eat here on a regular basis…we used to eat there more regularly, but the secret is now out that this is by far the best weekend brunch in town, so if we want to get in we have to plan ahead and make a reservation, and can’t just show up on a whim after church without a good wait. The secret is to make an online reservation just before Sunday School starts. It’s one of the few places in Fort Wayne that offers an eggs Benedict with a properly house-made hollandaise. Our kids love the French toast. And, they have a fantastic blackberry mojito. Anyways, we recently ate there for brunch, and there must have been a couple of kitchen snafus, because we were just at the point where we were starting to look around a bit—but nowhere near the point that we were annoyed—when the manager noticed, came over, apologized extensively, and gave us our lunch for free. That was totally unnecessary, but we were very impressed with their pride in their high standards and the dedication to outstanding service. Although dinners are more rare for us at Proximo, we do enjoy going there with family or friends for very special occasions, or sometimes we will just ditch the kids and enjoy a dinner on their patio, with lively entertainment provided by downtown passers by. Our favorite Cuban joint sadly closed under Covid, so this is a great place to get a Cuban fix. It’s a very convivial dinner atmosphere, even when you are seated in the back room, which is not quite as lively and glittering as the main room. We recently took our high school aged daughter there for dinner—she didn’t have a date for her semi formal—but gladly traded an Applebees dinner with some sweaty, nervous dude for a fancy filet mignon, dessert next door at DeBrands, and the opportunity to force her little brother to dress up. It was a lovely evening. At any rate, this is one of our most highly recommended restaurants in Fort Wayne. The food is exquisite, the service is impeccable, the overall management is on point, the surroundings are lovely, and they have a great kids menu for little brother.

I can't say enough about the family of restaurants in Fort Wayne that include Baker Street, Proximo, and Hoppy Gnome. As I am recovering from non-trauma kidney failure (since Feb. 28) my diet has certain temporary restrictions such as prohibiting dairy, salt, animal fat, phosphorus and potassium. Having worked in the food & beverage industry I know how difficult modifying certain dishes can be. In our past 3 visits to Baker Street our server suggested entrees that are easily transformed simply by eliminating the seasoning and I've been quite satisfied with the results. A couple of days ago I contacted Proximo to inquire about a certain dish on their menu and explained my situation to the person who'd answered the phone. She did not have an immediate answer to my question and said she'd have someone call me back. James Gibson, Manager of Proximo, called back within half an hour with suggestions for salt modifications on certain entrees that fit the bill for the rest of my restrictions and we promptly made a reservation for this evening. After we placed our orders Executive Chef, Kevin Fredrickson, came to our table to recommend one more change to the dish to make it more acceptable to my diet. Our server, Tina, was on board as well. Mr. Gibson also approached our table to make sure all was satisfactory. That kind of care and concern is rare in today's society but is greatly appreciated by Scott and me. We haven't visited Hoppy Gnome since my health has changed but a friend of ours had an equal experience there. She, her husband, and 4 friends stopped in later in the evening a few years ago without a reservation. Our friend has certain food allergies and upon perusing the menu decided there was nothing compatible with her condition so her party got up to leave. When questioned why they were leaving the manager told them nobody goes away hungry from the Hoppy Gnome and proceeded to prepare meals for the table and a special meal that adhered to her needs. We enjoy many of the eateries Fort Wayne has to offer but we'd be hard-pressed to find a company of restaurants that goes well above normal standards to take care of their patrons like Baker Street, Proximo, and The Hoppy Gnome.

We were randomly traveling in the area and stumbled upon this restaurant in Fort Wayne. We were delighted with the superb food and excellent service provided by Proximo. Our dishes were perfectly prepared and our waiter was enthusiastic and responsive. Well done management and chefs (and Christian)!

You'll not find anywhere else just like this place - interesting and eclectic menu and nice ambiance. We enjoyed the "duck duo" - duck breast and duck enchilada with mole sauce, and the lamb shank. The tuna (sashimi grade) appetizer was outstanding, and beautifully presented.

A group of us went for Sunday brunch. Being our first time here, we really enjoyed the look and ambiance of the place. For the most part, everyone enjoyed their food. I thought my Chicken Tortilla soup was among the best I've ever had, although it could have been served a tad hotter. The one real disappointment at our table was my wife's Street Tacos which were surprisingly tasteless. Overall, we feel like Proximo is worthy of our recommendation, subject to your menu choices.

We were lucky enough to find a seat at the bar during brunch on a Sunday. One of the BEST experiences we have had in a restaurant overall for some time. Food was enormous portions, flavorful and well prepared. We enjoyed a mix of breakfast taco proteins, and the mole BBQ sandwich. But the best part of it all for us was the service! The efficiency we saw in our server from behind the bar and the well oiled machine that was the kitchen - just top notch!!

We celebrated my birthday last night at Proximo. It was a very enjoyable experience! The food was great, the ambiance was wonderful, and the service was outstanding. When you have not decided on what was the best part of your meal, you know that you made a very good decision on the restaurant where you ate. I highly recommend Proximo! We have been there a few times and have always been pleased and will return.

The scallop dish, though beautifully plated and cooked well were gritty, and the rice was all one flavor that I have actually made myself from a hello fresh box. My husband enjoyed the duck dish. The best part of the meal was the warm, sticky spice cake desert. Two drinks, cesar salads, entries, one desert and tip set us back $155. It was good, but not great. Don't choose the scallops.

We stopped in for a drink, and it ended up several drinks and some appetizers. The bartender was young but extremely knowledgeable and helpful with the menu and the cocktail options. They switched the tv for us, service was prompt and professional. The only issue was it is so hard to hear when the bartender has to wear a mask, but that is where we are right now. But we were treated well, the duck tamale was something i could eat all the time, and the drinks were well made.

Went there 12/26 with a couple visiting from Italy. Embarrassed to have them think this represents all of the great restaurants in the Fort, " Only Paella in town" was completely tasteless and the steak wasn't even close to the one next door and it was the same price. We even threw the leftovers away. I left a message the next day to have a manager call me so I could let them know that this was a completely different than what we have experienced before but still haven't heard from anyone. HMMMM Wonder why????

Proximo has improved since we last visited. The service was excellent (Wednesday evening?!) and the food was awesome. We ordered the Cuban Chiken and Lamb Shank. While the chicken dish was nice, the Shank takes the trophy. With juicy tender meat falling off the bone, it was probably the best I ever tasted! Well, we would be visiting more often!

Every now and then, you experience a truly memorable dining event… Proximo is this! Aaron is a fantastic waiter with thorough knowledge of the menu and provided excellent recommendations. The lamb shank and fillet were our entrees, both fabulous! Don’t miss out on the Care Package and Milk Punch. We highly recommend the Spice Cake for dessert… there’s plenty to share for two or more!

Such A Flavorful Experience at Proximo. Visited Proximo on 5/4/24 with my husband and friends after a wedding. The open kitchen ambiance was delightful, offering a glimpse into the culinary magic. We savored a shared tortilla soup and Peruvian Saltado, and it was worth the wait. From guava margaritas to breakfast tacos, every dish delighted. Kudos to our attentive waiter, Joseph, for enhancing our experience. An unforgettable culinary journey!

Business lunch on recommendation. Not your average place, interesting take on Latin American and Mexican fare. A higher end experience with a moderate price tag. Food was good, fresh, large portions. Value was moderate pricing, $15-$25 per entree lunch option. Also full bar with in-house infusions. Smaller place and busy.
