Thank you so much the kind words BobS. Food, atmosphere and service are the three main areas we strive for and it's great that you enjoyed all three. We look forward to serving you again. -The Proof on Main Team
The ambiance was super cool! The food is some of the best we have had in a long time. Definitely recommend! The art in the hotel are a must see and the creative bathrooms. lol

Incredible meal. I had the beet salad and duck entree - two of my favorites to order when dining out. I must say the best of both I have had to date. Dessert and my partner's meals were just as fabulous. Enjoyed the dining space with art work as well. Great place for food and art lo vers.

We love Proof! The octopus is the best we have had anywhere. The pork chop was delicious. Our waiter couldn’t have been more helpful without being intrusive. We will definitely be back again.

Loved the artistic ambience of this restaurant; a lovely experience with attentive waitstaff and delicious food. If you like brunch cocktails, try the "No Spectators".
Francesca, Happy to hear you enjoyed everything. You'll have to join us again soon and try our newest cocktail on the list. The Ted Damson is also great for brunch. See you again soon! -The Proof on Main Team
The food was amazing- you truly can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. The service was friendly and attentive. The cocktails were fantastic. For gin & tonic fans, MUST try the house made tonic water!
Margot, Thank you so much, we're thrilled you enjoyed everything! Hope to see you again soon. -The Proof on Main Team
Creative and tasty brunch menu. Love the potatoes and breakfast sandwich especially.
Foodlove, Thank you so much for your review. That breakfast sandwich and hashbrown are our favorites too! Can't wait for you to join us again. -The Proof on Main Team
Great experience. Service was impeccable. We really enjoyed it.
WillM, Thank you for your kind words. We look forward to having you join us again in the near future. -The Proof on Main Team
I am being generous with my review because I think the place has potential and the food might be good if it was freshly made- My cocktail, the tamarind, was watery and nondescript. Had neither enough tequila/mezcal nor spice/tamarind. I had a vegetable platter (after reading all the rave reviews) but it was cold when it arrived at my table (hardened greasy cheese & oil- gross) I mentioned to our waitress who took the dish back only to bring back another cold platter.

Great spot for brunch. Good menu but not extensive. Lots of bourbon. Art on the wall that makes it a unique experience. Service was great and friendly. Food was wonderful and the cinnamon bun was worth the calories. I have been several times and each time has been good. Sometimes just sitting at the bar for a drink and a snack or having a good meal. Recommended!
TSReston, Thank you for your review. So happy to hear you enjoyed everything. We are definitely looking forward to our guests being able to sit at the bar top in the near future. Hope to see you again soon. -The Proof on Main Team
Honestly, I don't think it is a restaurant problem I think it's a Louisville problem. Service at restaurants is terrible. The service was slow, the servicer was attempting to be funny and it wasn't taken as funny. The food was very good, but not outstanding.

Fine food, fine atmosphere, great cocktails, HORRENDOUS service.
Andrea, Happy to hear you enjoyed your meal but so disappointed that you did not have an enjoyable service experience. Truly, than you for your feedback. -The Proof on Main Team
One of my favorite restaurants. But I’ve never had such a bad experience from a service stand point. Our waitress was short, dismissive, and non attentive. Felt like there was a prevailing attitude from staff in the restaurant of entitlement and distaste for customers.
I will not be returning anytime soon.

An outstanding experience! From the careful Covid protocol to the exemplary service and truly amazing cuisine, one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. Highly recommended.

Great food, wine, coffee and art.

The food and ambiance are excellent and interesting (for adults). We brought our 2 kids and the kids menu is limited, but ok.
Amanda7144, Thank you for you review. We're so happy you and your family enjoyed everything. -The Proof on Main Team
This is definitely not kid friendly although they have a kids menu. We felt like our server was annoyed we were even there. Food was okay. It’s in a hotel. Would not return.

We went to celebrate a friends birthday! Food was AMAZING. Drinks were ok. Vibe was SO COOL! We loved it.

Open on Mondays - Louisville doesn’t have many options on Monday nights
Thank you for the 5 stars, we hope to see you again soon! -The Proof on Main Team
The meal was delicious and the service was great. Social distancing and screening in place so we felt safe and were extremely satisfied!
jamesn, Thank you for your kind words. So happy that you enjoyed yourself and we look forward to you visiting us soon! -The Proof on Main Team
Server was rude, uninterested, and hard to hear. We were there for a birthday celebration, but this was totally ignored. Food was decent.
Diner12345, We are so terribly sorry that your experience wasn't nearly up to our standards but thank you so for your feedback so that we can share it with our team. We hope you join us again. -The Proof on Main Team
What a great experience and it was my partner’s first time and he agrees that Proof is excellent. Our server and our food were wonderful,there isn’t one reason for not coming to this amazing restaurant.
ParisR, We are so happy to hear you enjoyed yourselves so much! We hope to see you again soon! -The Proof on Main Team
*Edit 4/15/21 (I saw a reply and realized I must have submitted this without finishing - sorry!!)
This *had been our first trip to Louisville, and part of a birthday/date weekend, which was lovely since we haven't made it out of our house, let alone out of town a whole lot over the past year!
The food, service and ambience at Proof were beyond reproach and I can't say thank you enough for all of it. Our server (I want to say Brandon, for some reason, but it has been three weeks and I know that isn't correct) was kind, attentive, knowledgeable and happy to give an honest review when I was torn between several options - he did not steer me wrong! I had the mushroom risotto and my husband enjoyed the the salmon special that was offered that particular Friday evening - both were mouthwateringly delicious.
If by chance we ever find ourselves in Louisville again, we will absolutely return. If you're looking for a great dinner - just book it now.
AngelaD, Thank you so much for your review! We are delighted to hear you made us a part of your celebration on your first trip to our fair city. We hope you join us again next time you're in town. -The Proof on Main Team
Proof on Main felt like it was trying to be a boutique experience, but I found the Native American decor theme a little ham-handed. We read good things about Proof, so were expecting a really high caliber experience, but the food was overly salted and overpriced in our opinion. Service was friendly, but a little lackluster. I’d recommend trying somewhere else for a night out in Louisville.
CarrieW, We are so sorry your experience didn't "wow" you but truly thank you for the feedback. We have shared this with our team in order to improve our guests experiences. We hope you join us again. -The Proof on Main Team
Very cool vibe, great service. I think the menu may have been reduced due to COVID but would definitely go again!
Anonymous, Happy to hear you enjoyed yourself! With Spring upon us, keep on the look out for some exciting menu changes. Hope to see you soon! -The Proof on Main Team
Unique location and decor, and fantastic foot!
Thank you so much! Glad to hear you had fun! -The Proof on Main Team
We were in town for my grandmother's funeral and Proof on Main was absolutely wonderful to us. They even gave us a little champagne toast at the end which we really appreciated. The bartender and host/bar area assistant were so sweet and fun! That carrot soup! Amazing!
Shandy, So happy to hear we were able to lift your spirits. We have shared your fantastic feedback with out team. Hope to see you next time! -The Proof on Main Team
We had been in Louisville for 10 days visiting/working at our daughter and son in laws place. Come Sunday we were ready to visit downtown and have breakfast. Oh my ... daughter mentioned Proof on Main..we had no idea what to expect...the food was masterful. Hash w brisket burnt ends...and the best cinnamon bun we've ever had...and we know buns.
We ended the meal w a shot of Pappy Van Winkle...omg...go ..the setting is eclectic posh...set in a museum/ hotel. These 2 California kids will be back next year..

One of the best places for cocktails in Louisville! When in town, we love to stop in for drinks and dinner.
Nicole, Thank you for your kind words. So happy to hear you enjoyed the fruits of our bartenders' labor. We look forward to seeing you again soon. -The Proof on Main Team
The staff attentiveness and service was exceptional. We genuinely felt like they were excited to welcome and host us. If we lived in Louisville, we would be regulars. The atmosphere and art were so fun, staff added personal touches and conversation like we were old friends, and the food was phenomenal. We had the risotto and the porkchop and shared with each other, and knowing we wanted to do that, they even plated it for us that way without us requesting!
It's hard to find places like Proof and we told everyone we know hitting the bourbon trail, they need to make sure to have dinner there!
EricH, Thank you for your kind words! We will certainly share your experience with our team. Next time you're in Louisville we look forward to you joining us again! -The Proof on Main Team
Best brunch in downtown Louisville.
Be sure to try their biscuits. Best I have ever had!
JennyN, Thank you! It's definitely a test of strength not eat those biscuits for every meal. Hope we see you again soon! -The Proof on Main Team
