New menu and the chef has done an outstanding job! Roasted duck and a very intriguing Brussels sprouts and carrot mix. Very nice. Melissa did a great job.

Our server was awful. He wasn’t mean or anything, he was just bad at his job. My wife, friend, and I sat down and the server comes over. My friend asks for a coffee with milk and the server just walks away without taking orders from my wife and I. We all looked at each other wondering if that just happened. He comes back with the coffee and when I ask “can we order drinks?” he gives a look as if we’re bothering him and responds with “sure”.

He spilled coffee on my friend later in the meal, spilled a mimosa on our table, and mumbled most of the time he interacted with our table. If we weren’t in a rush I would have asked to speak to a manager.

The atmosphere was perfect, but the waiter kept badgering us like he wanted us to hurry up. Very annoying. We didn’t order a lot, but we would have come back if the service wasn’t mediocre.

My husband and I brought a friend of ours who was visiting from out of town. We all loved the atmosphere and vibe of the restaurant! The food was fabulous and presented in an attractive way. Our waitress was friendly and attended to a a mix up with a cocktail without hesitation.
We’ll be back to experience the fun bar scene!

The restaurant is beautiful and ambience was really lovely. The design of the food plates are stunning and clever and feels like an upmarket menu.
They were missing a number of drinks and foods from the menu when we visited and were understaffed but they made our evening very special and I would absolutely love to go back when they have everything available.

I was totally digging the atmosphere when we first walked in, so I had high hopes. After being seated, it took a server 10-15 minutes to even acknowledge us (I’m not sure if there was some type of confusion, and they didn’t seem THAT busy). I ordered a eggs Benedict...pretty standard brunch item. I was displeased to find that my English muffin hadn’t even been toasted. The waitress did check on us a couple times. At one point I thought she forgot about my drink, but finally brought it. I was not impressed for a $90 brunch.

We went here partly on the recommendation from the Shakespeare theatre. We had been to Proof so was familiar with the location. We had a great experience-excellent food and service and nice relaxing ambiance. The manager also stopped by which was a nice bonus. We had their featured white wine which was quite good. Split the eggplant appetizer-plenty for two and so good. I had the short rib-so tender and my husband had the rockfish. Cleaned our plates. We will be back. Just a really nice experience.

Everything was good, the waitress was a little ditzy that was fine, however the bar ran out of cherry's so our Manhattens were naked. Seems odd that a "high" end restaurant would run out of condiments. Details are important! good food nice place, i'd go back again

Ambiance is great and hostess was friendly. The happy hour prices were on display front page of cocktail book, but hard to find regular non happy hour prices. We had a group of four and had to ask for more than three menus, had to share one drink book for all of us, and had to ask for more silverware even though the restaurant did not appear crowded. One of our appetizers fell out of the bowl as the server put it on the table and even though the manager was watching, no one offered to get us a replacement beignet or even apologize. A little expensive for a brunch and not impressed with the service, which is a bummer because we were looking forward to going there in the summer- the patio looks beautiful. Also the bathroom is very far away from the restaurant which is not super convenient.
