This restaurant had fantastic food, great service and the ambience was amazing. Definitely recommend to anyone who is in Louisville that this is a must eat at restaurant!
A great dining experience. Service was excellent, everyone is so nice. The food was delicious and enjoyed having a meal where we could dress up a little and relax. The decor is so fun, it’s an actual art museum so make sure you take a little extra time and check it all out.
Our server, Britnee, was very accomodating. The food was great.
MelindaH, Thank you for your kind words. See you again soon! -The Proof on Main Team
A perfect dining choice as Louisville emerges from the pandemic. The sunchoke soup was outstanding, as were the chicken liver mousse, the cornbread, and the twice baked sweet potatoes. Our server, Zac, couldn’t have been more friendly and competent, and he struck a perfect conversational tone. We also enjoyed chatting with the manager, whose pride in the restaurant and its story was evident and endearing. We’ll return on our next visit to Louisville.
Maridee, Thank you so much! We're thrilled you enjoyed everything! See you again soon. -The Proof on Man Team
Limited menu choices for brunch along with being short staffed, resulting in slow service. The slow service applies to both brunch and dinner.
SusanD, Thank you for your feedback. We hate hearing your experience wasn't nearly up to our standards but are glad you shared it with us. Guest feedback is truly the best way for us to know where we need to improve. Thank you so much and hope to see you again soon. -The Proof on Main Team
What a great experience! Fabulous bar and excellent restaurant. Be sure to get the burrata and the grilled octopus - you can't go wrong. My bison burger was a beautiful cook and just delicious, although my delicious fires were a tad salty (could be my low-salt tendencies). Loved the vibe and just has a great experience. For the best bet, stay at the hotel 21C - so amazing! Be sure to check out the art - amazing. Had a great weekend thank to 21C and Proof on Main.

Fantastic smooth service from walking in the door for our reservation to finishing up with dessert and a drink. Kelly is an outstanding member of the Proof team. They have the tables socially distanced from each other. Masks are now optional if you're fully vax'd. The food, omg, the food was amazing. Highly recommend the streak. The specialty cocktails are fun to try.
JennieS, Thank you so much, we're so thrilled you had such a great time! We can't wait to share your feedback with our team and hope to see you soon! -The Proof on Main Team
Art was fantastic. Plan to go early or stay late. Server was super friendly. We ordered a number of small plates and everything was delicious-- sunchoke soup, asparagus and mushroom burrata were the favs. The asparagus had just enough spice to go along with the wood grill char. The cornbread was a little sweet for us with the apple butter, but that is likely preference for a savory cornbread more than a knock on the dish. Treat yourself and go.
AshleyJ, We're so happy you had such a great time! Spring is always such an exciting time at Proof with all the treats our farmers bring us. Hope to see you again soon! -The Proof on Main Team
Great and unique ambience; amazing cocktails; Food that pretends to be stylish but misses the mark on flavor.
Anonymous, We're so disappointed to hear we missed the mark with your dining experience. We will certainly share your feedback with our team as a growing opportunity. Thank you for sharing. -The Proof on Main Team

Housed in an art museum/hotel, with eclectic modern art installations. We had a great server, and the food was excellent. Recommend the charred octopus starter, duck and butterscotch pot de creme. Impressive bourbon list, as would be expected in Louisville. Enjoyed our evening here.
KathyM, Thank you for your kind words, we can't wait to share your feedback with our team. Glad you enjoyed our Bourbon selection! -The Proof on Main Team
The service and the food were both outstanding!! A must stop location.

Had a fairly large business group there for dinner last night. It's a creative atmosphere with an equally creative menu. The food was terrific and everyone had a wonderful time. The server was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Will be back for more!

Thank you for your review. If you have any feedback on how we could have made your experience 5 stars, we would love to hear it. -The Proof on Man Team
The food was excellent. I had a flight of bourbon, all of which were unique releases to Proof, and it was well worth it. The Willett in particular was one of the best bourbons I’ve tasted. The art work added to the ambience to make it a very cool dining experience.
SerbiaDetroit, Love that you had such a great time! The Willett is one of our favorite picks as well. Look forward to seeing you again soon! -The Proof on Main Team

The meal was EXCEPTIONAL!!! 10 out of 5 stars. The dishes were all elevated beyond expectations and top 3 meals ever, if not #1. Service was friendly, quick, knowledgeable, and wonderful. My appetizer of grilled octopus was amazing, but the entree was so next level I forgot what other food was. Absolutely WONDERFUL!!!

A beautiful ,clean, well run restaurant. Interesting food choices. The liver pate' was excellent as was the risotto and butterscotch dessert. Excellent service from Kelly. Extensive wine list. I would definitely come again.

Limited menu due to Derby weekend. Waitress wasn’t great initially but warmed up by the end. She started at about two stars but finished as a five star server. We chalked it up to having worked thru a busy weekend! Overall a good experience. It was my second time there and I was not disappointed.
PeterC, So happy that your service was able to finish at 5 stars. Glad you enjoyed everything, we look forward to your third visit. -The Proof on Main Team
The Chef was willing to change up the menu to adapt to our likings!!
Thank you KarenM. So happy the chef was able to give you exactly what you wanted. We hope you come back and we can do it again. -The Proof on Main Team

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.
