We had a fabulous time here last night for dinner. We had a friend visiting from our of town and wanted to take her to somewhere with an awesome view. Proof did not disappoint. Good food and drinks and the staff was wonderful. They even wished us a happy anniversary. Nice touch Four Seasons! Will definitely be back soon!

It was fine and when we walked out on the patio there was no sun. Then the sun came and we had to ask to put the shades down, otherwise it was good

There are so many better restaurants out there. The patio is nice in the spring and fall, not in the summer. The food is just ok and very pricey for what you get. The wine selection is ok and again very pricey. Not my favorite place

They were very understaffed and only had one server for the entire outdoor seating area. Not the service we would expect dining at a restaurant in Four Seasons. Food was good and outdoor dining was nice.

Proof is always one of our favorite restaurants in the area. The food and service are always superb, but the views of the Arizona desert are simply unmatched. We love coming for sunset dinners. Highly recommend as a place to bring out-of-town guests.

We've been here many times--elevated prices but always elevated quality...not this time. Indifferent and later passive-aggressive service, long waits, plates brought out at different times, one entree was brought to the table congealed and at room temperature (not even slightly warm/sent back), mistakes on 2-3 plates/orders/drinks. We were not rude or angry, but did plainly articulate the problems, a terse apology happened during the meal and later an offer of a free dessert (declined by me). When the bill was presented, a more detailed apology was verbalized--the server was emotional about the overall situation and explained that they are 40 staff down in food services and everyone is frazzled. That person even stated how it is hard to keep caring. We empathized with the server and wished them well. It hurt to see their pain. We weren't seeking apologies. Things are tough right now for many, many organizations, but that doesn't excuse a luxury hotel restaurant expecting premium prices and then providing only fair (and even poor) quality food/service. Organizational culture is top down driven, leaders model expectations, take care of and watch out for their team, and "show the way." That is not what we saw here--burned out staff who are moderately trying to care but no longer can make that happen. This one is on their leaders...

The food and drinks at Proof are priced ridiculously high. Three of us in my party ordered the Steak and Frites which was a disappointment. The steak was tough and dry. Food and drinks are very overpriced, but the real catch here is the view and only if you have an outdoor table. The Sunday brunch is really great but again, you will be paying for that view.

We usually love it here. The food is delicious, atmosphere fun and sunsets beautiful. We live close by and used to frequent but sadly the last 2 times our service just hasn’t been as good as before the Covid shutdown. We will try again in hopes that we simply got unlucky twice. But I have a feeling it could just be this particular server.

Overpriced. My salmon was over cooked, dry and over spiced. It also came with side of corn instead of buckwheat as menu indicated. Tuna tartar was different in a bad way from any I’ve had before. Too many Jalapeños on beyond burger. .For the famous hotel the meal was awful and way too expensive. I would never go back.

I made a reservation requesting outside dining as we had out of town guests. Of course, they can’t promise accommodations, but I thought since it was a special occasion, my chances were good. Upon arrival, I was told we could eat outside, but they didn’t have enough heaters so it would be cold. This is unacceptable and not something one would expect from a Four Seasons resort. They seated us at a high top table (inside) that was so wide, it was difficult to carry on a conversation across the table. Someone brought water and menus to the table, and then no one ever returned. After 15-20 minutes, we just left and went to an Indian restaurant down the street. The food was delicious, ambience was great, service was outstanding and the prices beat Proof (where a chicken sandwich was $28) by a mile. Save yourself the trouble, time and money. Go to the shopping center down the street from Proof, and you will find a fantastic Pizza joint, Italian and Indian food. You’ll be glad you did. Proof is nothing more than over priced bar food with people who act like they are doing you a favor by letting you eat there. It has a phenomenal view but not worth the negatives.

As always, we love to come back to Proof. First, in this pandemic, we feel pretty comfortable about how the Four Season is handling it. Second, the service is excellent. We always hope to have Marie Louise, and so far we did. She is wonderful, professional and respectful. Third, the setting is beautiful, we always dine outdoors. Fourth, we regularly get a visit by the manager caring about our well-being. Fifth, we are able to self-park, important to us in these times. And fifth, of course, the food is good, even though the menu is limited.
We highly recommend Proof!

We love to come here, especially for the outdoor dining. We feel that they take all the pandemic measures which makes us feel safe. Everyone wears masks, tables are far apart, not at all crowded. The patio has nice views and sunsets. Service is wonderful. Professional, attentive but still personal. We love Marie Louise! The food, “American Comfort Classic”, is always well prepared. We come back, over and over again.

Have been going to Proof for years, but haven’t been there since the pandemic started. Was excited about going back until I saw the new prices. My wife and I had 1 drink each, chips and salsa appetizer, she had shrimp cocktail appetizer as her dinner and I had the hamburger. Total bill $105 plus tax. Seems like an awful lot for what we had. We will be finding more reasonably priced restaurants to go to.

We had a pleasant dinner experience. We sat on the patio and it was a much quieter than the last time we visited - not surprising given the table spacing and substantially fewer diners. Food and drinks were good and plentiful. The scoop of ice cream and hot fudge for dessert was OK - we should have shared something more elaborate. We’re thankful the FS and Proof are open again, albeit in a somewhat limited state.
