Taxim is THE place for authentic Greek food. From the owner who flies Greece on a regular basis to the taste of every dish (we’ve been there enough times to taste pretty much the whole menu), to the indoors and amazing patio, everything is to love about this place. We are now committed to go once a month because it is the only place in the city that truly makes us feel like we are back in Greece. Highly recommend!
Service was slow and unenthusiastic and one woman couldn’t care less about her job or are experience. Also didn’t tell us they stopped serving at 9 until afterward. Only thing I enjoyed was the tzatziki. Not many pescatarian or vegetarian entree options. Disappointing experience.
Grear food, some of the best Greek I’ve had in the city. Server made an excellent wine choice for us based on our preferences. Rooftop is one of the few in wicker has great ambiance. Train is nearby but not too loud. Security and checking in prior to seating was comforting. Plan on returning.
This was my first time dining at Taxim, I’m not sure what I was expecting, but it met all of my expectations. Since it was during the beginning of the openings of restaurants due to Covid, we sat out in front.
I think I would classify this as Greek food with an upscale original twist. They have all the classics, but they are served with a twist, for example, the Saganaki comes as a stack almost like a Jenga game and not flaming. It was very good and very original.
My party enjoyed every plate that we ordered, and by the way, they have a big portion of the menu as “small plates” so you can order 4-5 items to split.
Overall, I really enjoyed the food and the service was amazing, I wish I can remember the waitress’s name, but she was excellent and I will be going back there again.
PS Don’t get to uptight when the bill comes and they have a “Covid” charge added, which is simply guaranteeing money to help pay the staff during these trying times.
Our reservation was at 9. We didn't get menus until 930. We finally wrapped up our meal at 1145...the entire rooftop bar been empty for a half hour. When we told the waiter we eat disappointed with the service, he actually shrugged at us, saying they were busy. Several tables were seated after us and left long before. Pointed that out and he shrugged again and said sorry. Guess it's all good to him since he had a 25% tip wet since we say down anyway.
Killer! Had a wonderful date night here. Gorgeous rooftop.
Arguably the best experience in the city. Fantastic food, airy ambiance, wonderful wines. My favorite.
Reason I am rating them lower is because they did not take sufficient COVID precautions. No temp checks. Insufficient distancing etc. Probably won’t dine there again until we are in the clear with the pandemic.
There is a 25% gratuity charge whether you like it or not since Covid so don't be surprised. READ THE MENU.
Taxim is one of our favorite Chicago restaurants. The food is so authentic and always amazing.
Fried mussels and eggplant with pita appetizers & lamb kabob with rice main dish
Everything was perfect. Beautiful evening on the rooftop. This is my favorite place and they have made it just as special upon reopening!
The food was very good as was the service.However, we were very surprised that they added a 25% Covid -19 charge.
There was no mention of it on the menu or by the staff. We understand it been a difficult time and that restaurants made need to raise prices but it should be done with full disclosure and not a $60 charge slipped onto the bill.
Great service. Apps are delicious. Rooftop doesn't get much sun, so dress accordingly.
We had a terrible waiter named James who had constantly forgot to grab order and drinks. I've never had a more incompetent waiter. Other than that, the food was excellent.
The food, service, and COVID precautions were excellent
Great roof top and great service
Our server was good at advising us on the food and the choices among the Greek wines. Atmosphere on the roof is comfortable and nice. As we open up from the pandemic, a restaurant's procedures are important. Tables seemed to be just adequately separated, servers wore masks. Menus were in clear plastic sleeves that we hope they disinfect after each use. Don't remember if they wore gloves. Not an A+, but pretty good, maybe a B.
It felt great to go out to dinner. 6/11/20
Had dinner on the rooftop and all the food was delicious. Service wasn’t anything special.
Restaurant called to confirm reservation and indicated we needed to arrive 15 minutes early to be seated on roof. We arrived at the agreed upon time and they told us it would be 20 minutes. They weren’t apologetic.
The most well-kept secret patio in Chicago! The food was delicious, and I had a good cocktail as well. Service took a bit of a long time, however, the server made it right - really appreciate this. Overall, a lovely experience.
Everything was incredible. We ordered the shrimp dolmades, eggplant, and sea bass. We also had dirty martinis that were delicious. Rooftop is beautiful and we will certainly be back!
Taxim is a WONDERFUL restaurant with authentic Greek food. We were there the Saturday night before all Illinois’ restaurants closed. BEAUTIFUL decor. All four of us enjoyed our food. I hope it survives the shutdown.
The lamb kabob were amazing. Enjoyed our meal and great service. Place was packed on a Saturday night.
The food and service were terrific, but the noise level was loud.
Another truly excellent dinner. The whole fish was perfect texture and the lamb chops the best I have eaten anywhere. Service as always great.
One of the top spots in Chicago!
Delicious and authentic. Service by knowledgeable staff. Not your every day Greek restaurant, but with authentic and unusual dishes. Huge wine list from Greek and surrounding countries
Wonderful Greek cuisine- every dish had a unique flavor and texture. The best octopus with caramelized onions we have ever had!! We will be back soon.
Valentine’s Day dinner. Almost every dish was delicious. The trio of spreads especially, and the sea bass! They were VERY understaffed for Valentine’s Day. Impossible for our server to give every table appropriate attention. The food somewhat made up for it.
My date and I had a 6:0OPM reservation and we were seated promptly. However, we were not greeted at the table. I had to ask a server if we actually had a server. This was after watching the server greet and take the orders for two nearby tables that were seated after us.
The food took an extremely long time and while I understand it was Valentine’s Day it was a prixe fixe menu which should allowed for faster serving times. By the time I received my entree I was too disgusted by the wait to eat it. Also, we were suggested carry out boxes before even receiving our entrees.
Also, a 20% large table charge was added to my tab without my permission. I was planning on tipping anyway but to have it added for me is a very bad practice.
Food was amazing!! Great wine and beautiful atmosphere.
The staff was friendly, great, efficient. The food was great: good tastes: grilled octopus was tender and done perfectly; friend cauliflower had a great cause, as did the beef kabobs. The pastry was amazing. Lots of varied tastes. Lots of choices we couldn't get to. They came up with non-alcoholic drinks to offer to our non-drinking member. Nice room, noisey but we could carry on a conversation easily. We didn't feel rushed, just papmered. We plan to return.
Food was good, not great, nor particularly interesting. Tables very close together and noise level pretty loud making conversation difficult. Waiter was great, but probably won’t go back.
Extraordinary David and his team deliver the finest regional Greek dining experience in Chicago !
Whitney is the best
Absolutely unbelievable experience !!!! Waiter Chris was the BEST!! And all of the food was incredible
Great food. Great service. Lovely restaurant.
Food here is always excellent. Try the lamb shoulder, grilled shrimp, grilled octopus, and fried cauliflower.
