Restaurant week at Proof and Pantry ROCKS. Each course is better than the one before.

The restaurant was closed for repairs. We were not notified at all that our reservation was cancelled.

Cannot review but had to rate to submit so gave middle of the road. Unfortunately Proof & Pantry was closed when we arrived for our reservation. Evidentially they were having HVAC issues. I'll try again sometime and hope they will be open.

We made reservations for four at 5:45p on a Friday. We arrived and the doors were closed, the place was dark and there was a sign that said it was closed the previous day for HVAC work. Nothing about today, though it was clear they were still closed. No calls were being answered and no notice about a closure. So we left and went across the plaza for food at a very overworked restaurant picking up slack for a two-show evening. I was very much looking forward to the meal. Alas.

Happy all around. Food was good. It was close to the Opera House where we had tickets for the author talk.

This was our first time at Proof & Pantry. We picked it since it was close to the theatre and offered a theatre menu. It's a cute place but the service was terrible. They didn't appear to be staffed enough to accommodate a theatre night. The poor waiters, host and bartender were running around trying their best, but some patrons gave up and left. We arrived at 6 for a 7:30 show and barely made it on time to the show. The place has potential if they can staff up wait staff and kitchen staff on theatre nights.

Restaurant was having an issue with their A/C ..basically it wasn't working however it just seemed to our party of 6 that they weren't doing anything to fix the problem (it was 96 degrees outside). Asparagus salad had very little asparagus and the mussels were dried up and off tasting. The bread that accompanies the mussels was stale and over oiled and no attempt to toast it. Three in our party ordered the prix fix pre theater menu that came with a special cocktail of the evening but the waiter didn't offer it until we were ready to leave? A glass of red wine ordered was HOT. Won't be returning.

Our party of 4 arrived on time and hungry for our 6 PM reservation for a pre-show dinner at this restaurant that’s a short walk from the Winspear and our 7:30 PM show. Shortly after 7:10 PM, an hour and 10 minutes after we were seated, 2 of our entrees finally showed up. When one of the other 2 finally showed up after 7:15, we told them to take it back because we didn’t have time to eat. We never saw the 4th entrée. It was inexcusably poor service. The restaurant knew we were attending the show and they even have a pre-show menu, so they should know the importance of timeliness. We will not return to this restaurant.

We are ATT season ticket holders and frequently go to P&P for pre-theatre dining. Most of the time we have a great experience. On this occasion, there was a staff shortage, which drastically reduced the level of service we expect. A typical salad was delivered without described ingredients. Was not until we inquired, was it disclosed that all of the ingredients were not available on that night. Too late to send back the salad, we also had to ask to have the cost removed from our bill. Growing tired of the limited menu. Definitely do not sit in the area behind the main dining room. Both times we have dined there, we have found service is really poor.

Creative food. A bit too unusual for me. The veggies with my fish were unusual. Fish was delish.

A must if you are in Dallas. Exec Chef Nick H has an amazing menu and the staff know how to make the dinning experience a great night out. Will definitely visit again ASAP

Took 50 minutes to get our food. We got there 1.5 hours before a show at the Winspear, and we couldn't enjoy our meal because of how slow the service was and we almost missed our show. Completely unacceptable.

We were on our way to a performance at the Winspear Opera House. We were running late --- that evening and desperately needed a restaurant that was close by. For previous performances I always book our favorite restaurants for dinner before the performance. But this time, I had other things distracting me and I had stupidly forgotten to make reservations (!) for dinner. Soooo---at the last minute---I checked all the usual restaurants near the venue. I called and called, only to be repeatedly told that they were each fully booked. I was about to give up, but stumbled across a restaurant I was unfamiliar with called Proof & Pantry. It was wonderful! Fortunately, it was within easy walking distance to the Winspear. The ambiance was fun---the waiter was charming--and the food was great!
