We were there for a quiet father/daughter birthday lunch so the low-key atmosphere was lovely. However, that may have had more to do with it being less busy.
The food is upscale bistro with prices to match. $100 for two appetizers, two basic mains (no steaks) and a coffee. No booze. My Dad, who has sampled hundreds, said the fish and chips were the best he'd ever had. My salmon was very well prepared. The soups were better after they'd been heated up.
Very nice environment, service was quick and friendly. Food was great, portion sizes were perfect. Had a reservation for 6:30pm but were not seated until approx 7:20. They were generous enough to treat us to a free app that was very good. I would definitely go again
Everything was perfect! Steaks were cooked perfectly and the Masala Street fries were incredible.
Just out for beers. Wish there was a bigger craft beer list but probably not the restaurant’s fault as it’s still Covid.
amazing service, good food.
Pleasant evening at Proof Kitchen and Lounge. Service was friendly and efficient. Food was very good. Will return.
Burgers were huge and very tasty. Fries were excellent. Salad was a little damp ( not super crisp).
I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."
The restaurant atmosphere and service are exceptional. The menu needs some work.
The service was great, the food excellent, but the price definitely upscale.
A wonderful place. Calm and sweet. Great food and the service is so fast. But they keep trying to take my leftovers away. Lol.
But that’s because I want to eat it all! So good.
We’ve been dining here, several times, in the past few months and have found the service, ambiance, and food to be consistently top notch.
This restaurant has excellent servers (not to be taken for granted during these “Covid Times”) and the chefs and kitchen staff (in the background) create wonderful specials and appealing meals. Hold on to them!!!
We’ll be back!
Overall we enjoyed our evening or with friends at Proof. The atmosphere was lovely. The staff was friendly but not able to answer or questions regarding wine selection. They tried to get others to help but they also didn't know. A brief description of each wine would be helpful.
The market salad was so flavourful and delicious but the pickerel dinner was tasteless, almost watery and the mushy peas were pureed not'mushy'. All other dinners ordered were good.
Amazing food and wonderful service. We had a wonderful evening!
Always looking for a restaurant with halal food options and a nice ambience
Got both and extremely happy with food and service.
Will definitely come back again
Food took over an hour to arrive, but i think it's most likely a lack of staff issue because we've always had good service before.
Ours was a very good dining experience. The food was tasty and plentiful w/ some new and interesting combinations of spices and herbs used in the various dishes. It is relaxed and leisurely dining. Just what we wanted.
Overall it was very good. Food was good. Service was very good. I did ask for a quieter table to celebrate my wife’s birthday which didn’t really happen but they did bring her a wonderful desert at the end.
It was ok there. Caesar salad very difficult to eat. Maybe it was my food menu choice that made my experience ok. The server was awesome!!
Food and service were very good. Everyone in our party was happy with their meal. Our only negative was that the lighting was extremely dim. I would return again to enjoy another meal
I very seldom write reviews and certainly never bad ones but i cannot help it. Maybe it was just a bad night and the chefs were off. I know that covid is stressing out restaurants to restart with the necessary help - but this was a poor meal from start to finish. We started with the "grilled: calamari. It was spongy, the "grill marks" looked prefab; it did not look or taste grilled - or like fresh calamara. The puttanseca sauce was good but completely cold - maybe it was supposed to be?The bread was not the focacia advertised on the menu - but just plain grilled bread. For our mains, my husband had the breaded pickeral and chips. I asked him how it was and he said 'it's only ok". Usually he raves about fish and he never complains . As the meal progressed, (and my main was not enjoyable) I took a small piece of fish he had cut off and it was not only - not fresh - it had turned and was bad. (I had to spit it out in a napkin). He said that he had cut this part off the end because it was discoloured. I told him that he should not have eaten any of the fish but by that time it was almost all consumed. I had the duck on barley. It sounded delicious but I ate only one piece. There was no maple syrup taste only the overwhelming flavour of liquid smoke. (The menu said it was brined in applewood - I suspect merely liquid smoke). Not enjoyable - i took the meal home and gave it to my pets. 3 Strikes. I won't be back. I do hope they get their act together because the ambiance is quite nice - casual but a good room.
Very super quiet. Too quiet. Appetizers were excellent. They were about to have a menu turnover so couldn't get the cocktail I wanted. Entrees were decent - the duck was very fatty and chewy, but the risotto was good. Everything could use a bit more seasoning.
We know that COV conditions have made things really challenging, but the kitchen timing was off (mains arrived while we were still eating starters); wine did not arrive until after the main was served... cocktails took some 20 minutes (We think maybe there was no bartender working?)...
Meats were beautifully cooked... perfect... and the starters were great...
Asparagus out of season was tough and overcooked...
We are hopeful that you can rebuild the kitchen and serving staff so that timing and delivery can be better. Excecutive chef should give some attention to seasonality and avoid "supply chain" problems that way (as well as having better quality on the plate).
In non-COV time, I'd be more cranky about all these things. In current conditions it would not prevent me from making a positive recommendation, but I would warn a friend to "manage their expectations".
SEveral dishes were tasty but kitchen was very busy so food delivery was very slow. Drinks were disappointing and some food undercooked.
Delicious food , wonderful ambiance , professional friendly staff !
Seated next to the bathrooms even though there were many more tables available, told that none of the drinks on the menu were available because they were "changing the menu". Music was so loud we couldn't hear each other talk even though we were in a corner booth. In the end we couldn't stand it, only ordered drinks and left.
As usual, great experience all around. We went for a birthday and they brought out an amazing dessert. I tried the duck and it has me wanting to go back. Fully recommend!
I ordered the lamb chop which was half fat… literally half of the deboned meat was full fat and cooked to medium rare and made it so hard to cut through the meat with all that much fat.
I asked the sever to check with the chef and she returned saying that’s normal to have that amount of fat in a lamb chop which wasn’t really convincing since it wasn’t the fist time I ever order a lamb chop.
I would never order that meal again.
It was a great experience overall for a first visit.
We were so pleased to be able to return for in-person dining. Food was exceptional - Proof’s always provides a wonderful dining experience.
Outstanding dinner! Both my wife and I loved our dinner! She had the signature burger and I had the California grilled steak bowl (salad based). Super delicious and I would highly recommend. See picture for the California filled steak bowl.
great experience food, waiter
Food is always delicious. You can feel good ordering anything off this menu. From the steak to the chicken sandwich, everything is done to perfection. The staff are very knowledgeable while reccomending wine to go with your dinner. Highly recommended
My meal was so so, but all others at the table enjoyed their meals very much.
Amazing atmosphere and delicious food! Can’t wait to go back again!
Always dine at this restaurant when I stay at the Delta. Usually an amazing experience. This time, however, our server seemed a bit inexperienced, and our food took a long time to be served, and when it was served it was a medium temperature. Didn’t complain because everyone was hungry and needed to eat.
A very nice place to dine. I had a good time and the food was really nice.
Great atmosphere, food and service. Did not disappoint.
We had a fabulous lunch on the patio. Our sever was amazing. Thank you for the great dining experience. This was our first time getting together in person in over 19 months.
Gorgeous restaurant and amazing staff. My only suggestion is the cups that the PINK SAPPHIRE beverage came in were extremely tacky, worn out and did not fit the aesthetic of the restaurant.
