    I love this bar restaurant. The menu is limited but delicious, and the ambience and service are discreet and welcoming. I go to numerous concerts at Koerner Hall right across the street so Proof is my go-to place for a drink and a bite with friends. I would recommend a bit bigger menu.

    Came for the experience, although the temperature ended up being 15°c outside, kind of taking away the igloo experience with a nice warmth. The servers were very nice. The blue igloo was heated,and no very picturesque. Will be back only to dine indoors, the igloo experience is good for a 1 time booking.

    This place was amazing. We had a dining dome and it was such an experience. They were a little late on our reservation but they were so accommodating to us and because of being late, they scrapped our time limit and let us have the dome for as long as we liked. Our server was amazing as well.

    We joined for the Igloo experience. Beautifully done and very nice to have a new option for a date night, but the set menu was a bit disappointing for the price with very limited options. We also ordered off the main menu which was great- value and quality. Also great service. Would go back again for indoor dining, but think twice about the igloo, mainly due to the price for the limited and mediocre menu.

    Lovely experience. We enjoyed the fact each colour dome represented a different experience. We did the Red dome. The food was great (wine, appetizer and dessert). It definitely created a mood of romance and intimate pampered experience. We will definitely be doing this again next year. :)

    Compared to other bars, it wasn’t crowded. It felt like having a private candle light dinner, which is what we're looking for on valentine's day. Not much pricey for two people but could be for larger groups.

    No atmosphere. We had a reservation but they didn’t have tables out. Tables were bare and chairs uncomfortable. Food was poor. The sparseness of the space meant it felt like you were in everyone else’s conversation even though there weren’t many people there. Calamari meant chewing for 10mins, steak was limp. About as far from what you’d expect in Yorkville as possible. Our waiter was nice, but he did not have a lot to work with. This should just be a bar, ditch the restaurant bit. But even if it was just a bar, I likely wouldn’t go again.

    Super nice staff, nice foods and quiet location. We had a family of four (two adults and two kids) and booked set dinner (for adults , as no choice for kid meals when booking online). The staff came in and nicely changed our two set dinners into kid meals and charged us considerably less for the two kids. Very nice hospitality, beautifully set table in side. Highly recommend.

    I was offered a different menu when I purchased the dome experience, I got very small appetizers and tiny dessert, which brought us to buy more food, after all, Dome is not warm enough as the heater is very small and you have to literally sit beside it to get a little warm. The servers are friendly and the domes are clean, it can be wet inside so be careful when you sit on the couch.
