    Wow! Our second time here and I am more blown away than the first! The food was perfect. We had the Pork-chop, Black Hawk Sirloin, The charred Octopus, and of COURSE the cornbread. We were devastated to hear it’ll be coming off the menu, hopefully chefs change their minds! 🤞🏻 We paired our food with a recommended rose from our waiter, who was phenomenal by the way. All of the staff are more than accommodating and welcoming. This is our favorite date night spot, the beautiful decor, awesome art museum, and of course the gorgeous food plating and cocktail decor. 100/10 Truly worth every penny.

    We dined at Proof for lunch, prior to seeing a show at the Kentucky Center. It's been awhile since we've dined there. And, Proof did not disappoint. We ordered the pimento cheese for an appetizer. It was a fantastic start to the meal. Then ordered a favorite of ours, the Bison burger. It was absolutely delicious; cooked to perfection. Our server was attentive and personable. Thanks for a great experience (again)!

    Very fun. artsy decor. Great wait staff, very attentive. The food is underwhelming. For the price, I expected better. I ordered the Rock Shrimp risotto as I am a huge fan of both shrimp and risotto. You get some tiny little chunks of shrimp mixed into the rice with a heavy dose of toasted espresso and fennel fronds (not the actual bulb). It wasn't horrible, but not to die for either. Not sure I would go there again.

    An order was placed and the service person came back later and said 'sorry we're all out'. And so we had to re-order. Please do not do that. That is not a 5 star restaurant attitude. Otherwise, for a $160 dinner for 2 people, it was O.K. The waitress was very good; the food was O.K.... We've been there before.

    The mussel appetizer was good, except half of the mussels were missing from the shell, but the sauce and dipping bread were good. Corn bread was also very good. My wife had the swordfish (her comment “was okay”). The medium rare bison burger was cooked very well, but didn’t care for the fries that came with it - straight out of the bag and into the frying oil. Atmosphere was good all around - at the bar and at the restaurant. Cocktails were decently priced. Overall the service was good.

    Menu is somewhat limited but everything we had was well composed. Chicken roulade was dry but everything else was spot on. Service was excellent.

    This is becoming our go-to. We love being able to have a fantastic meal and then move over to the bar area where we can experience a cool vibe while sipping on a great cocktail… or two.

    Tremendous meals. The pork chop was excellent and the swordfish was very good. Charred octopus and charred broccolini were fantastic. Drink menu was fantastic.

    Our first visit to Proof in many years was an unqualified success. The staff were wonderful, the new menu was a hit (the swordfish... ...wow!), and they had wine from one of my favorite under-the-radar Willamette Valley wineries. We're local and will put Proof on much more regular rotation from now on.

    Alexa did a great job taking care of our family on Christmas Eve. Although our reservation was only 15 minutes prior to kitchen closing we were provided full service food and beverage and never felt rushed. Thanks to Proof on Main and 21C staff for a wonderful dining experience.

    The setting/atmosphere had a fun moody vibe. The food was fantastic. The service was so great as well. We were so happy with a small intimate holiday family dinner before our evening show downtown.
