We are new to kentucky bourbon and the wait staff was very helpful in selecting the perfect "taste of Kentucky" cocktail. The food was different but delicious. Be sure to take a trip to the bathroom!

We met friends for lunch at Proof because they were staying at 21c hotel and that is the restaurant located there. It was a Wednesday and there was a busy lunch crowd. The room was bright and open. 21c signature red penguins added to the ambiance. The service was efficient and our waiter was pleasant and helpful. Our table had the carrot soup, shrimp salad, grilled cheese, gnocchi and side salads. The side of french fries was the crowning glory. All of the selections were interestingly prepared and delicious. We skipped dessert as the portions were more than adequate. The wine selection was nice and our waiter was helpful with our choices. After lunch we took a stroll through the museum part of the hotel. Again, it was interesting.

The swordfish was delectable and cooked to my specifications. The bourbon cocktail with the lemon twist and blackberry garnish was a perfect way to start. Dessert was the selection of gelato and sorbet. I thought the chocolate cherry was the best, but friends disagreed whether popcorn or rhubarb were better. They were all good. Service is smooth, and the server was happy to oblige with our ordering different items as a main course instead of the straight offerings. She even allowed a small donut to go with the frozen treats. That was classy.

This is a bit pricey, but very well done restaurant in the hotel 21c. A very different menu but everything was prepared nicely and presented well. The service staff was great. Not inexpensive, but a good choice. We had both dinner and breakfast at Proof as we were staying in the hotel.

A fun place to go to with a group of friends. Wander around the museum first and then head to the restaurant.we were with a large group and service was a bit slow. Food was good, interesting and eclectic. Bone Marrow appetizer was excellent. Someone in our party ordered a steak which was not up to par, they took it back and brought another entree fairly quickly. fun place and good experience overall.
