My husband and I went here for dinner and were sat at a half booth half table. The problem was, I shared the booth with the table on either side of me. The tables were so close together you could hear every word everyone said....More

The food was not particularly good--overseasoned, mostly (I had some soup). The cornbread was all right, a little too hot for me, but overall pretty good. The photos on the walls were weird--half naked men lounging on seats, etc. Will never be going back again....More

We were visiting from out of town & celebrating a birthday here. The ambiance is phenomenal, as is the kitchen set-up. You can clearly see/hear the expediting of dishes & a real tight line of cooks. I wish the food had been better. We ordered...More

Very unique hotel and restaurant. Very eclectic art. Bartenders make very good drinks but they are all hand mixed so allow some extra time. The restrooms in the lobby are a must see. Also lots of artwork throughout the attached hotel.More

The restaurant, Proof and the hotel, 21c are all part of the museum complex. So your walk to the shared restroom is filled with art installations that change out regularly, there's also art in the bathrooms themselves.
