We are regulars at Proof, and for good reason. We restrict our dining to outdoor only seating, and Proof has a really nice outdoor patio. Add in the good food and the always friendly service, and there you go! We will be back soon.

Everything was super ... menu choices, food quality, service, value for money ... except the noise level coming from the (r)evolve cycle shop next door. It made it very difficult to carry on a conservation when seated outside.

Unfortunately with gluten and a severe pine nut allergy. I will not go there again. There were not a lot of options for me.

It’s my 2nd time in this restaurant. Ordered the carbonara. Took 2 bites and decided not to finish it. Noodles were over cooked and looks like the food was sitting on the warmer for a while. Our waitress Savannah had noticed that I was not pleased with the food and she took it back in the kitchen and offered us dessert instead. Tiramisu was good. Not the tiramisu I am used to but it was good, not too sweet just how I like it. Savannah and the manager were both very accommodating and I was pleased with the service. We will be coming back because of Savannah’s warm smile and great enthusiasm. Please make sure to let her know that . We’re the ladies that were over dressed that evening.

We had a girls night out and celebrated our friend’s bday. Our server was excellent! We had told her that it’s my friend’s natal day and she got a candle and also a lighter for us,ready to sing happy bday to our friend. The only thing that we had an issue was they seated the wrong party under my reservation but they made it up by seating us outside by the fireplace which we were going for anyways. All in all everything was good.

I love the food at this place, but every time I visit there’s a long wait between my arrival and the time someone acknowledges my presence and shows me to a table. Then 10-15 minutes later I have to go back inside and ask whether any server has been assigned to my table. After that point, it’s always a great experience...

The cauliflower crust pizza was amazing -- we couldn't believe it wasn't regular flour-based thin-crust dough. Loved the cocktails, Caesar salad and squash pasta too. The patio is a perfect venue for a relaxing, COVID-safe evening out.

We arrived at Proof, checked in and seated. We sat at our table with our menus. There were 4 tables with patrons in various stages of having dinner. There were at least 4 waiters walking back and forth none stopped at our table. We waited for 15 minutes and not one waitress or waiter stopped at our table. We finally just got up and left. Very poor customer service. Do not go to this restaurant.

My husband I had dinner at Proof prior to an engagement party which was at the restaurant. We both had pizza and both were delicious! Our waitstaff was terrific and very attentive. We ate on the patio and listened to the live band that was playing. A very enjoyable evening!

I enjoy all of the restaurants at St. Philips Square. This is my second time at Proof. The Caesar Salad was good. I also had Zoodles with alfredo which was also good but needed salt. The other pasta dishes were ok. We did not have the pizza this time but would definitely go back to try some. Enjoyed sitting outside. Our server was spot on perfect which made everything better.

We were seated at an outside cafe table. The fans were not on and the misters couldn’t reach our table. It was a little uncomfortable. The asparagus appetizer was good. We had the sausage pizza, but it was way short on a key ingredient, sausage. It was disappointing. Our waitress was the highlight of the whole meal. She rocked. There are many similar type restaurants in and around Tucson that are far better. We won’t go back to eat here again.

All in all a pretty good experience. Food was very good service was it as good. Waitress was not very attentive. Sat with empty glasses for a while. There was no one else in the restaurant other than the three of us and another couple.

We had an enjoyable, outdoor dinner at Proof. We were a party of 8, and to be truthful the service, while friendly, was a little slow especially for drinks. But no big deal. We like a proof and will be back!

Wanted to be safe and sit outside even though temps were over 100oF . We were seated at a table near the mister fan and this worked out very well to keep us cool despite the high temps. Our server wore a mask although did not wear gloves all the time ( which would have been my preference).
I know they are famous for their pizza but I had the salmon and my husband has the chicken Parmesan. Both good .
Would go again.

Our Server was fantastic. She was kind, helpful, and attentive. She helped us move tables when the original table I selected turned out to not be a good choice. The happy hour menu is great and I like the deals of the day options. Even though it was during the pandemic, I never felt unsafe or unwanted. It was a pleasant experience.

I made a reservation and requested inside seating. We waited for 30 minutes at front tables until we just said we would sit there. We did not get to sit at a booth. What's the use making a reservation when you can't get seated anyway. My husband and I both felt sick when we got home too.

Terrific food! Will be a repeat customer. Gluten free options, the bruschetta was delicious, spinach artichoke and olive tapenade. Spinach salad with candied walnuts. A cauliflower crust fog and grilled chicken pizza with goat cheese. Finished off the night with a chocolate flourless torte that was amazing!

Everything about Proof was excellent. My only quibble was the live music in the courtyard, which made conversation on the patio very difficult. Perhaps if we had been seated on the other side of the pizza oven, this wouldn't have been such a problem. Overall, very good food.
