Proof of Proof
The entries were very good. The deserts were a big let down. Expensive, small size and not good!! Also, wine and liqour are priced like you're in Talavera not a coffee shop.

Nice evening outside.
We had guests from out of town and they enjoyed the outdoor eating in a very nice setting. Our server was a little confused on our orders, but when we finally got the food it was quite good. This is not (and is not meant to be) gourmet dining; so for what it is, it is very good. My burger was over-cooked but onion rings were wonderful. Oyster appetizer is to be missed - not very tasty. But meat loaf was wonderful, fish was good and dessert was passable. Here's a plus - good outdoor heaters.

This was my second visit to
This was my second visit to the Four Seasons' newest foray into the casual dining scene. The dinner menu is casual as billed nd food delicious. For some reason though, service was just a notch or two below the standard of the Four Seasons. We were there before the dinner rush hit so am not sure the reason it took so long to get our food. And our waiter was clueless when I asked what kind of greens were in the 'ham hock southern greens'. His answer was 'green leafy vegetables'! Turns out they were collard greens but we had to order to find this out. Overall a great outdoor dining experience in a beautiful setting.

Fun and Fabulous
We had dinner here twice in the same week as we were staying at the Four Seasons Scottsdale and it was convenient for our purposes.
The restaurant is fun and energetic. The staff here is spectacular (Keisha the bartender was so engaging and Sherry the manager was so friendly and warm) we felt like VIPs!
The menu is quite varied and there are choices for everyone. Prices are reasonable and the setting is fun and entertaining. I recommend sitting outside if possible.
All of the food choices we had were very good.
This is a fun and fabulous place to enjoy a casual night out.

Because the indoor and outdoor
Because the indoor and outdoor options for seating offered two completely separate sets of "ambience," I have checked special features that seem opposed to each other. The indoor scene is "livelier" (one could say "noisier") and much more kid-friendly with games and comfy sofa seating, while the outdoor scene has fantastic views and provides a casual, romantic setting with sunset views. I would tell you our favorite table on the patio, but my selfish motivation won't let me divulge it! (There really are no bad seats.) The burgers and homemade chips are wonderful, and service is very attentive without being overbearing. Altogether a lovely evening. We're nearby locals, but this is a great resort restaurant for tourists!

Our new favorite spot!
Proof is comfortable, relaxing and thoroughly unique with its inventive comfort food menu and Route 66 touches...we loved it and will be back often!

Theme restaurant that caters
Theme restaurant that caters to Baby Boomers and their children. Great energy, Four Seasons service and prices, comfort food. Fabulous setting with great sunset views of Pinnacle Peak framing the sky. Music from the 60's and 70's introducing a sense of energy and nostalgia. I would go back.

Great food horrible service
Been to proof many times, this time the service was awful. Waited over 30 mins for him to take our order. Finally had to give the order to the manager. Drinks took over 15 mins. Asked for extra little toast for app. should showed 20 mins later brought by someone else. Never once apologized. Restaurant was not busy I would say 40% full, so that wasn't the issue. He walked by every once and while but never made eye contact. You don't think this type of service would not happen in a 5 star resort.
5/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
You get what you pay for
This won't be a cheap night out. The burgers are $19! But if you can forget about the prices and enjoy the experience, you won't be sorry. The menu is unique and eclectic. Everything we tried, from the cocktails to the dessert, was top-notch. Amazing atmosphere and friendly service. A rare place that is just as appropriate for dinner with the family or an adult night out.
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Some of the other reviews comment that the prices are too high. I disagree. When valuing food, you have to account for the setting and the service. Proof has one of the best settings on all of Scottsdale. The mountain views are amazing. Moreover, I don't think the prices would be much lower if the restaurant was located in Downtown Scottsdale. The menu is excellent with lots of appealing options. I'd certainly go back.

Gorgeous views/excellent food
An unexpectedly wonderful experience. The outdoor views and indoor ambiance were both great. The food was excellent. Shrimp with grits was yummy. Prime rib was like butter. Berry pie was just awesome. Lemon basil ice cream completed that dessert. Ice cream and berry pie made in premises. Awesome !
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a wonderful waitress, the food was very good,
great presentation. We love the atmosphere, we would
and have recommended it to friends and plan on coming
back ourselves.. but, beer in a can... no... expect bottled
beer... maybe you could work on that...see you again.

Great Menu Selection
Homestyle cooking with menu selections for everyone. From barbeque, to salads, to burgers to entrees all are delicious. We stayed at the Four seasons and ate breakfast here every morning. Very creative and tastefully prepared breakfast items. Not the usual boring selections. All ingredients are purchased locally so the eggs are truly amazing. The breads are unlike anything you tasted. I live the 3 grain toast with homemade jelly. Loved the berry and carrot cake jelly! All served in metal with porcelain coating dinnerware. Very fun! The view doesn't get any better with mountains, cactus and birds.

Great comfort food
Groups watching sporting events prevalent. Fairly loud, many tvs, sports bar but nice energy. Mixed clientele due to resort locale. Superb service and Lavender Mule!!!
6/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Gem in the Desert
Four Seasons hit the mark with this restaurant in that it is perfect for families visiting the resort OR locals (like us) who want to enjoy the view and eat some casual comfort food. The facility is beautiful so the word needs to get out.

Proof at 4 Seasons, Scottsdale
The Staff and one of our favorite Server's (Abrielle) sp? always provide great professional and fun evenings.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our first visit to Proof and it did not disappoint. We enjoyed everything, especially to attention of our server. A noisy nearby child was a minor and temporary inconvenience. I look forward to another visit soon.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great family spot
We had a great time at Proof. First time there and we worried that a hotel based restaurant might not be that good. The decor is fun, the energy is great and we had a blast as did our kids. The food is casual but thoughtfully prepared and tasted great......really good quality. Fun night and save room for dessert-try the root beer float!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Been there four or five times
Been there four or five times as food is great; however, the service is lacking. It in no way is anywhere near the level of service that should be expected of a Four Seasons. You have to ask twice sometimes three times for a refill of water or iced tea. Waiter says I'll be right back and 15 mins later no sign of them. Have had to on more than one occasion find the manager to get our bill.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best new restaurant in Scottsdale
I know of no other restaurant in all of Scottsdale with a better view of ambiance, and the food is imaginative and fantastic. The vibe is great. You have to try this place.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
You had me at Atmosphere
On top of great food, great service and a great view, Proof has amazing decor! The setting is in the most beautiful desert in the world, at the Four Season's Resort. The atmosphere was incredible if you like Rustic, wood, and steel and live acoustic guitar music looking at the infamous Pinnacle Peak mountain. The food was awesome, they had a backyard bar b q that night which they do once a month and the food had an incredible flavor. We had a party of 8 and the service level was impeccable...I can't say enough about them, and believe me we will be going back!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Proof consistently delivers!
Proof consistently delivers on ALL fronts: Great food, and excellent service, surrounded by amazing views of Pinnacle Peak!
Standout entrees are the Chicken and Waffles; Pork Chop, and Shrimp with Grits! ALL Fabulous! Great food, great presentation but served with a casual flare in a comfy location! The Milkshakes are incredible so be certain to save room for desert!
The wait staff, was very attentive and very pleasant. The Manager, stopped by our table several times to insure our well being! Overall; a great dining experience! Bravo!
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lot's of Fun
It starts with the Hostess staff greeting you right down to the pastry chef!!! Our server Fawn did an excellent job and made the dinner truly enjoyable for our niece and nephew. We had the beer tasting menu and the pairings were great. I would recommend the restaurant to any family with kids. We enjoyed the restaurant so much we had breakfast there the next day. The sundae station was a big deal with our niece and nephew. Keep up the good work!!!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food experience was so incredible. Such a unique array of options to choose from; we ordered most of the menu and didn't regret a single one. My favorite was the house made pretzels. Service was beyond friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was so well designed and put together and had a sophisticated-cozy vibe. I will defiantly be returning.

Darryl, our server, was just a delight. The pulled pork sandwich was out of this world and the pretzel knots reign supreme!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
A must try- will surely become a regular-go-to! Awesome view! supurb service! lively!, fun!, great beer selection, great wine selection, the best desert options in valley! Casual enough to be a regular - go -to but with 5star quality and service. Love, love, love love love this place. PS we have gone for dinner here with our kids (5,7,9yo) as well as out with other couples - scene is fantastic, food is awesome. We took a family from out of town here, their son has a peanut allergy, the staff was attentive and accomodating. The chef, himself, came out to discuss their procedure with us. YOU MUST TRY THIS PLACE

Proof Scottsdale Four Seasons Resor
Proof has a whimsical and nostalgic décor that is hard to describe. Part old time soda fountain, part neighborhood pub and a little magic is in the air the moment you walk in.. Its like a trip down route 66 in its hey day. Welcoming from the minute you walk in the door. A staff and management team that excel in every way. Honest and sincere service that makes everyone feel appreciated. The views from the outside patio are spectacular and the sunsets are better than any show you have ever seen. Jesse Hansen and the culinary team have created a menu that recognizable yet filled with unique touches and surprises. Fantastic drink menu. Its the best gastropub in the Scottsdale area. What are you waiting for?
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Kudos to the chef
Loved the menus. Everything from Cioppino to chicken and waffles!!!! And the kids menu is terrific and they the kids meals on melamine TV dinner trays!!!! Very very clever!!!! We will return.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Apparently, this is the more
Apparently, this is the more casual of the Four Season's (North Scottsdale) restaurants but the service was on par with their fancier restaurant. Food was very good at a very good price point - not cheap but good price point. View was excellent from the patio - try to request the patio if/when you make a reservation.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed a nice breakfast for
Enjoyed a nice breakfast for two on a Sunday morning. Service was unremarkable...seemed like we never had a dedicated server, which was not a good thing since none of them really paid close attention to us. For $65, I do expect my water glass and coffee cup to be filled regularly. Plus, it took way too long to get my dishes cleared and have the check delivered. Again, just seemed like we were in no man's land on the service side. That said, the food was very good -- what you'd expect from the Ritz-Carlton. The ambience on the outside patio was lovely for breakfast. We'd go back, and hope that the service is improved.
10/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
This restaurant at the Four Seasons is outstanding - love the decor; we sat on patio with views of Pinnacle Peak; service couldn't be better and the lemon ricotta pancakes and eggs benedict w/crab were the best I've ever had. Not to be missed!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have a place right around the corner, but have never visited Proof before. We had a group of eight, the food was excellent, the views can not be beat, and the entire staff was extremely helpful in keeping our kids (8-12) entertained throughout dinner! I would highly recommend this place for a casual dining experience!
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Extremely Enjoyable Experience!
Great staff, great food. Upscale casual in ambiance but elegant "foodie" food with top-line service from everyone - hostess, manager, numerous wait-staff (extra kudos to our server Abrielle - not really a server, more like a "Proof Experience Director"). A restaurant experience that can be different things - a bar/lounge that is comfortable and meant for staying a while with big screen tvs; indoor and outdoor seating offering great views any easy conversation; family-friendly with some ways to keep kids entertained; a little intimate/romantic if that is what you are after. In summary, I want to go back! If it was in my neighborhood, I would be there at least once a month if not more often!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome casual dining
We visited after playing Golf at Troon North. Proof is in the Four Season Hotel but very casual. Four Season's service at reasonable price. Highly recommended. Food is fantastic and service is awesome.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent innovative menu and great preparation. Wonderful ambiance. Enthusiastic and very we'll trained wait staff. Have been here many times and always looking for a reason to return.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Near Troon, gorgeous, casual - GO!
First time was dinner in spring - incredible, creative dishes and rustic, charming old Americana decor. Lunch this time started w/the fried green tomatoes w/crab remoulade, XLNT. Boys had Waldorf sandwich and a burger, I had the veggie sandwich on whole grain bread - all wonderful. Minor minus, the cole slaw had no dressing in it! I took home to use with another meal with some lubrication.
Their view of the desert landscape and some hotel casitas is lovely, and patio is well-shaded to avoid glare. Lovely people serve in checked gingham dresses or shirts, lovely diners also so please don't dress down for this exquisite neighborhood gem and destination. Memorable.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Place for All
A terrific option for families where parents want to eat something decent and make sure the kids have good options. Kids will love it as they have games and dinner served on "tv dinner" trays. Kids options go beyond chicken fingers and mac&cheeese with items like salmon.
Food is generally updates of american comfort food. All items we have tried were excellent.
Service is friendly.
Views of Pinnacle Peak and surrounding area make sunset dinners even better.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
A special treat
The Four Seasons Hotel in Scottsdale, AZ has finally opened a secondary restaurant worthy of the Four Seasons brand. Proof is a combination sports bar (many tv's) and casual dining spot. The area away from the bar and patio are suitable for families and groups not interested in sports. The menu is eclectic with a southern flavor (shrimp and grits, fried chicken and waffles), but I opted for the lobster roll which was spectacular--expensive but huge and melt in your mouth tender. We live in the area and return for that.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
We celebrated our 45th Anniversary and wanted a casual, fun place with outstanding food and not ridiculously expensive. Proof was the perfect place. The menu is trendy (chicken & waffles) and local. Great comfort food! It's a relaxing sports bar with comfy sofas, high & low tables, even a shuffleboard table!
Our server was Cesar who made us laugh and was attentive. I had the flank steak special. It was...perfect! My husband had a fabulous pork chop. We were treated with yummy Fried Green Tomatoes while we waited for our dinner prep as it was a bit lengthy. The dessert chef, Stephanie, prepare an amazing celebratory dessert.We had such fun we came back the next day for brunch and watched a football game. A perfect evening in a perfect place!

Keeps getting better
Proof is one of those restaurants that keeps getting better the more you go. The food is incredible (I recommend the double-cut pork chop), the views are spectacular and the service can't be beat. The staff is overly friendly and is what keeps us coming back. The more you go, the better they get to know you. They make us feel like family. Graham, the GM keeps a watchful eye on all of his guests and always takes a moment to acknowledge you despite what he might be engrossed in at the time. The bartender John took a moment to come out and let us know about their selection of American made spirits and to invite us to try anything we might be curious about. Even the back staff took time out to say hello. This is how a restaurant should be done!
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
My new favorite!!!
Great menu and great execution!!! The chocolate bacon waffle was outstanding as were the ricotta pancakes and French toast!!!

Casual Fine Dining
This is our second visit and both the first and second were great service. The managers and wait staff try hard to meet your needs and do not leave you to your devices. They answer questions and really know their stuff.
