Enjoyed the variety offered by a whole series of small plates! Loved the food. Reminded me of what we ate while traveling in Turkey! The flavors were incredible and everything was cooked to perfection! Thank you for an amazing meal!

The turlú without feta is fully vegan and fully amazing. To round out the meal, the kolokithokéftedes (squash fritters) and the agináres me koukia (Politiki-style vegetables) are also vegan. But I would go back just for the turlú any day.

We dined at this cool regional Greek restaurant in Wicker park. Some deelish small plates like okra, fried cauliflower, pork belly, sardines, octopus, squash fritters, grape leaves wrapped shrimp. The quail entree and duck gyro entree were yummy . Very Cool decor and we made sure we had room for dessert. The homemade ice cream from Rodopi mountains orchid roots... More

I did not think anything was over-priced and the portion sizes were fine, particularly the roasted chicken which was delicious. The beet salad is also tasty and different. Our server had a great wine recommendation.

I live in Chicago and have had the experience to dine in many of my city's fine restaurants. And while Taxim restaurant is located in a popular part of town, I would not recommend this restaurant to any of my friends and I hope you read this review and save yourself some money. There is very little tradition regarding the... More

The rooftop patio was lovely at night. The service was wonderful. The menu was original and delicious. If you want to try fresh Greek inspired food this is the place.

The meal was overpriced for its level of quality, and portions were very small, more like a snack. The flatbread was uninspired for $14 with only 3 slices. Finding a parking spot is, of course, nearly impossible, like everything in the neighborhood. You'll be frustrated and in a bad mood before you even sit down. It's pretty easy to just... More

Started out slightly disappointed, since the rooftop seating I requested via Open Table when I made my reservation wasn't available despite having booked several weeks in advance. Main dining room was fine if nothing special and pretty noisy. Food was good but not great. Prices pretty reasonable for what you get and the service was both friendly and efficient. Perfectly...

We arrived without reservation early evening. The service was excellent, delivering the courses very efficiently and responding to all our needs. One of us is a coeliac and adjustments were made to the elements in each course to provide good gluten free options. We enjoyed all the food, especially the sea bream.

We love Greek food which never means a Gyro sandwich shop...we found this after a search of Greek restaurants in Chicago and were beyond thrilled with the food and the service. The wine list was exemplary - while many Greek restaurants carry a bottle of Retsina, Taxim had a GREAT bottle (for the uninitiated, it's really an oxymoron to have... More
