Taxim, which is located in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood, features regionally-inspired Greek dishes paired with an all-Greek wine list. The stunning dining room is fitted with soaring 16-foot ceilings, travertine marble floors, dramatic Byzantine-style lamps and artwork, and the rooftop dining area lined with Greek flowering herbs.

Additionally, Taxim's housemade yogurt with young favas and lamb confit was selected as one of the Best Bites of 2009 by the Chicago Reader, the house-cured sardines were mentioned in Time Out Chicago's 2009 "100 Best Things We Ate (and drank) This Year" feature, and the wood-grilled octopus was selected as 2010's "Best New Dish" by Chicago magazine.

Been there many times, each time was really good! Great atmosphere, good food, good service! It’s a perfect restaurant, but really loud on Saturday night if you’re inside, the dj was blasting music…but that’s the vibe, so just know that before you go. At one point they turned off all the lights and handed out sparklers to everyone and it was a big party! Felt like a party in a resort in Greece.
