We've eaten at Proof numerous times, including a unique celebration for a special occasion. We were there last month. pre-theater. Food and service have always been superb. Not so last night. Our male server was obviously late for his starring role in Night of the Living Dead. Seriously, he had no recognizable human personality or demeanor. He was brusque, cold,... More

Food was good, wine list was robust, service was attentive and atmosphere was fun and lively - but, thankfully, not too noisy. A good place for dinner with business colleagues. A bit pricey.

Went here to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Very nice staff greets you as you enter. One small complaint is that we were never offered outside seating. We would've like that, but either it was already reserved or they just didn't think we would want to? I don't know. Next time I will ask when we arrive. The waitstaff is friendly... More

Proof offers excellent food creatively prepared and presented. The mains are outstanding and the wine list gives a wide range of choices to satisfy any palate. Appetizers and cheese boards offer more creativity, quality, and fun than you will find at most top quality restaurants. Paired with outstanding by-the-glass wine choices it is possible to build a wonderful light meal... More

It's nice to be able to be seated early when you could only get a reservation for 8PM and you have an event to attend at 9:15. This was our case and the hostess was sweet about it. Bam. We were in. Our waitress was lovely and our glasses were never empty. The food was elegant and nicely presented. I... More

We went for a birthday dinner and the food, the service and the whole experience was outstanding. Let them pick the cheeses for you - we tried some new things we probably never would have picked on our own. And the honey that went with the cheese platter was incredible. The appetizers were large and we probably could have shared... More

I can't remember how I came across this restaurant, but my husband and I had dinner here the other night and it was excellent. We shared the charcuterie platter, which had a great variety of flavors.

I suppose the one negative is the giant wine list, which is somewhat overwhelming and challenging to maneuver. Otherwise, this is a great place. It is very expensive, so be prepared for spending a good amount. It was two of us. We shared the Boston bib lettuce salad. It was large enough for two and delicious. I had the duck... More

Proof is a cool spot that hits the sweet spot between fabulous food and warm service. The quinoa salad is the best i ever had. But all in our party liked each different salad. Halibut a great choice in the fish line. My husband liked the hangar steak- actually truly properly med rare. Joseph, the sommelier, is fun and knowledgable... More
