Stopped in (not planned) after Wizards game as it's very close to the Verizon Center. Saw that no cars were moving so stopped here for a drink at the bar to wait it out. Place is well laid out and beautiful and cozy. Nice bar/lounge area and great selection of wines and cocktails (and beer). I had the Broadway Boogie... More

We enjoyed a pre-theater dinner here and were entirely pleased. A Seared Potato Gnocchi appetizer and Roasted Delicata Squash salad preceded our Ora King Salmon entrées, and all were great. Our vegetarian guests pronounced their meals tasty and satisfying (fried cauliflower & Brussels sprouts, I believe). Great cocktails, cheese offerings, and wine list. Tom was our capable and entertaining waiter,... More

Probably the best restaurant in the area and always crowded. Service is excellent and the varied dishes are always excellent. Just plan on spending some serious $$$

We found this to be a very busy and noisy place. Our take was that it was simply trendy. We caught the happy hour while waiting for our table, but two simple drinks were still $25. Expect to pay a high price for appetizers and dinner. Any side dishes are an extra charge. Food was good but not exceptional. Our... More

My husband and I met up with friends for dinner in Washington this weekend. We wanted to talk and catch up. We had such a pleasant experience at Proof. Our table was all set for us as soon as we arrived. The noise level was reasonable and we could talk without shouting, always a positive. We ordered a bottle of... More

Proof is an excellent dinner option. We had six dishes between the two of us, and all were good. The halibut was the most distinctively good, although the Pekin duck was also excellent. The best dish of all was the sticky toffee pudding, which paired perfectly with a glass of Scotch. Wines were superb, and the advice of the waiter... More
