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.
Everything came out way too fast
My friend had quite a draft coming down on her. We were able to adjust the table so she was comfortable.
I enjoyed my appetizer with humus and ricotta cheese. The warm olives were perfect.
The patio is lovely and the weather was perfect to eat outdoors. Lovely outdoor venue!!
Awesome as always
The food was delicious and appealing to the eye. Service was friendly and efficient. The patio is well-spaced and comfortable.
Great food and great atmosphere. Appetizers and mains all delicious, modern and worth the value.
we found the food to be underwhelming & the prices high for the type of food being served.
Caesar salads were good, pork belly sliders were on stale buns, beef carpaccio was meh. The burgers were just OK, the turkey focaccia was soggy and lacking flavor. I personally would not recommend based on our experience
Wonderful flavours, perfectly cooked steak, can’t wait to return!
Great experience all around. Friendly service, perhaps the best cocktails in town, beautifully cooked food, and great dessert. My wife had the Moroccan Chicken (the stuffed eggplant on the dish was the star), and I had the Chef's Cut Elk, priced at a premium, but paid off with its superb seasoning and cook. We cleaned out plates!
Kinda slow service but the food was great. Wish it came to me a bit faster
Ate a wide variety of appetizers. Most were really good. The calamari was tasteless - left 2/3rds uneaten. The soup was served cool and was reheated upon request.
Service was sporadic. Initial service timing was top notch and then slipped progressively from there. We interacted with 4 wait staff (unclear why); they didn't work as a team.
Really like the outdoor setting.
The waiter is so lovely. He recommended us lots of nice and beautiful drinks and food. The Corn Chowder is really a good choice for vegan. And the duck breast and chef's cut are also very delicious. However, it turned to be very noisy after 7:00 pm. There were also flies and mosquitoes around our table, my friend and I were both bitten by them :(
Service and food were both fantastic we forsure recommend Proof to our friends and Family
Busy place. Food good not great. Ethan was a great server/bartender.
Great service…food “ok”
Would come back, great food, great service. First time going!
Really enjoyed their vegan and vegetarian offerings.
Prices have gone up way more than before for the food only being average. Service was great. But wouldn’t say it was worth the price.
Food was good and our server was pleasant and helpful. The entire restaurant is very noisy so don't expect to have a quiet dinner. It was hard to hear people at my own table. It's ok if you're having a party! Price on the high side but a lot of prices have gone up recently.
I really appreciated that they were able to get us a cozy booth in the back as requested.
Best burger I’ve ever had.
Everyday Salad was also great!
My husband and I enjoyed our Dinner Date at Proof Kitchen thoroughly. The staff was great and courteous. The food, service and ambience was definitely worth the price.
I always hesitate eating in a hotel restaurant, but this one definitively breaks the mold! We got recommended an excellent wine bottle by the sommelier, the appetizer squid was meh, we had tenderloin (fresh and cooked to perfection) and fantastic breaded pickerel (highly recommend). House salad was also excellent. Service was low-key (appreciated) and reasonably fast. Alas we did not have desert because we were full, but they did look good! Ambiance was perfect for a date!
The food was not impressive and it took well over 1.25 hours to make the table
Not the first time we have been to Proof and have enjoyed the experience…but for some reason they seemed to be short staffed and we had to wait quite awhile for our meal…we were not in a hurry but the staff was obviously not happy!
Too bad as we really enjoy going there
Short staffed and chef not on duty. Out of several items on menu.
Sat on the patio. Stains on seat cushions, tables are all scratched up. Lamb was not cooked medium, more like well done other than that food was good, flavours were good. Foxcroft wine was delish! Music on the loud side but I would rather that then just listening to road noise as Erb is a busy st.
Everything was amazing! We sat in the bar area and our female bartender was outstanding! We will define be back!
Ambitious menu during a pandemic resulted in flavours being a bit meh. Table ordered Mac and Cheese, smoked duck, and fried chicken sandwiches. Duck was just okay, Mac and Cheese was good, and the fried chicken sandwich was disappointing. The GF breading on the chicken was more “frozen fish stick” than fried chicken.
Service was amazing, and they have a terrific patio.
Pair back the menu to a few star items and this place would knock it out the park.
The lights were so dim that my husband and I couldn't even read the menu. There were 2 servers serving us and yet the service was extremely slow. The food was only okay. Not really value for money. The quality has gone down at this place post pandemic. I don't think I'll be going back again.
We were easily accomodated inside when it was too windy to be on the patio upon our arrival. We certainly appreciated how easy it was to move our group of 6 inside.
Excellent, friendly service. Delicious food.
The online reservation worked well for me. I like the confirmation notice I received 2 days in advance of our dinner.
Amazing restaurant. No complaints. Service was amazing, food was delicious.
Overall great experience. Friendly staff. Great food - I really enjoyed the Moroccan Chicken!!
Great food and ambience. Perfect for date night. On the pricier side, but that was expected.
Good experience other than we were charged for our dessert on our anniversary which we thought was kind of odd. Food we average.
Our server Frank and his trainee, Izzy were fabulous! Frank was very knowledgeable when it came to the menu and easily talked us through dietary substitutes. The food was incredible and the portions were more than satisfying.
