This is a great wine bar (wonderful selection of wines) and restaurant. It is walking distance from the Embassy Suites where we stayed. We always choose restaurants that have a good wine list, and this one fit the bill.

I enjoyed the lunch special while visiting DC. $14 for lunch and a glass of wine, you can't beat that. To top it off, the food was beautiful and tasted amazing. I had the grilled garlic chicken, so flavorful. The house wine was excellent as well. The restaurant has a great decor and the staff was very friendly and welcoming.... More

My daughter and I enjoyed the $14 weekday Lunch Crush special which features an entree and glass of house red or white wine. A great deal. We decided to take a seat at the cool metal bar with its ultra comfy chairs. The Duck Confit I ordered was wonderful! That first bite of ultra crispy skin with just a hint... More

What a great surprise! We enjoyed one of everything. Decided to entree share and ordered all of our favorites. Service was great and so was the ambiance. Must visit the guys and girls restrooms - very unique.

My wife and I went here for our anniversary dinner (or one of them, anyway) while we were in town for the weekend. The food was good and satisyfing, though it's all a bit on the eclectic side. I'm all for trying new things, but at the same time, there should be a balance to the menu where it's not... More

Good food and reasonably priced but expensive wine list. Nice staff and good wine sommelier called Morgan who knew her wines.

This restaurant is listed as #8 of Washingtonian's Top 100 and used to be one of my favorites. No more, As I wrote to the restaurant itself, their utter lack of customer service left more of a bad taste than the ice cold food they served. Yes, ice cold meatballs and pasta. Probably due to our awful server, who spent... More

Visit (09/30 17:30hours) One of my very favorite restaurants in town and it is sad to see the quality of service gone so badly snob. From the service point of view I can't understand how a establishment such as PROOF do not reiterate this very basic standard with their staff. The hostesses were simply unpleasant and not one single smile... More

I may not have rated the food highly enough due to the excellence of the wine and the prompt refilling of our glasses! Most bottles cost $100+ but we managed to get wonderful wines for less than that after talking with Morgan the sommelier. A group of 6, we started with the full charcuterie platter, the goat cheese with honey... More
