This was our first visit and it was on Thanksgiving day where they had a set menu. In fairness, they were one of a few restaurants open on Thanksgiving on Louisville. We found the food to be rather bland and somewhat overcooked. We would go back here because the vibe is great! I'm confident their regular menu is probably really good.
The service was great!
Anonymous, Thank you for the 4 Star rating! We are glad we were able to provide you with a Thanksgiving meal but are sorry to see that you found it to be bland. We greatly appreciate that you enjoyed the atmosphere we provide and hope you will come back and try our regular house menu! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience as it always helps us grow from the comments of our guests!
My wife is pescatarian so the menu having only turkey or beef was an issue. She very much enjoyed the bread, salads, sides and desserts on the fixed menu but in previous years, there were more options on the menu. This was our third or fourth trip to Proof for Thanksgiving dinner.
We would like to see that again, and will be sure to check the menu before arriving next year. Without such options, we will not return for Thanksgiving dinner.
Our server, Dorcari, was excellent. She was very attentive and apologetic, but obviously there was nothing she could do about the menu options.
Excellent food and service

This was a really fun place. The food was amazing. I had the chance to be there for brunch. The fruit salad was actually inspiring! Delicious!
DawnD, We are very grateful for the 5 Star rating and that we were able to make your brunch such an enjoyable one! We will look forward to your return to Proof soon!
Went for brunch. Great service! Very tasty scratch biscuit sandwich! Cocktails were inventive with house made shrubs/syrups. Highly recommend!
PatrickK, Thank you for the 5 Star rating and for the wonderful review! We are so glad that you enjoyed your time with us and the culinary and beverage delights that you selected! We will hope you return to Proof again soon!
Food was great, service was great, the only thing was our table was very wobbly and we had to keep our foot on the leg of it to keep it from wobbling. Every time we moved our drinks would wobble. Everything else was great!
Anonymous, Thank you so much for the 4 Stars! We are very happy you enjoyed the staples of your visit but are also very sorry that your table was so wobbly! We have alerted our engineering department so that we can make sure all the tables have been properly tightened! We hope you will visit us again soon!
The food at Proof is second to none. I ordered the Barr Farms Chicken and it was perfectly executed... on top of being damned delicious. The service was slow and seemingly somewhat disinterested. This place is hip, but its an incredibly slim margin between being "cool" and just downright cold.
DerekS, Thank you for the 4 Star rating! We are so glad that you enjoyed your culinary treats upon your visit! We are sorry to see that your service lacked enthusiasm and attentiveness. Those are important aspects of the experience and we hope that you will return to Proof to find that we hit the mark there as well. Thank you for sharing your experience with us!
Amazing food and drinks. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone visiting Kentucky for the bourbon trail. Absolutely charming and cool restaurant

Service is always very good.

Unfortunately, my first visit was not stellar. We had very early reservations and we one of 3-4 tables seated. The service was very slow. I ordered soup which arrived without a spoon and lukewarm at best. I expect better service and hot food at a higher priced restaurant such as this.
Ellie, We are so sorry to hear that you didn't have the best version of Proof upon your first visit. We do hope you'll be back to try us again and find hot soup and attentive service. Thank you for taking the time to review and let us know your experience!
The staff was wonderful. When one of our party got a poorly cooked meal, they immediately replaced it.
PCat, We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your service and experience at Proof! We are so sorry that your meal needed to be replaced but are very glad we were able to turn the night around! Thank you for the 5 Stars and for taking the time to share your experience!
I am so sad to say our meal this evening was awful. We ordered the beet salad. There were very few beets and the micro greens were mostly stems.
Pcat, We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the beet salad. Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience.
The food was spectacular and the waitress was exceptional. Initially did not expect a great meal, however my wife and I walked out impressed and full.

Food was ok. Service was sub-par. I know help is hard to come by these days but it wasn't crowded at all. Our server screwed up our appetizer order & neglected to even comment about it. Never came to the table to ask if everything was ok & then I ordered a 2nd cocktail & he never brought it. After seeing him walking around doing nothing I finally asked him again for it & he went to the bar to get it. Overall somewhat disappointing
ElleJay, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are so very sorry to hear that your experience was not what we want to provide for our guests or what our guests expect from us. We do, sincerely, hope that you will give Proof on Main another chance to provide that experience properly.
Disappointing entree. $48 for a short rub that was mostly fat. And for a supposedly 48 hour braise it was pink and tough. The Bibb salad was outstanding.
PortlandPete, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We are very glad that you enjoyed the KY Bibb Salad but am also sorry to hear the short rib left you underwhelmed. We appreciate comments from our guests so that we may always continue to improve and grow. We do hope you will return to Proof on Main again soon.
Great people. If you are in Louisville you need to experience this at least one time.
DN16, Thank you for your kind words and recommendation! We look forward to you joining us soon! -The Proof on Main Team
