Loved the bison burger and shishito peppers! Bourbon flights were so much fun. Missed out on the cotton candy though!
Great service. Knowledgeable waitress. Food preparation good.
Wonderful Dinner, eclectic and engaging atmosphere, great food, fabulous service (Brittany gets 5 stars). A bit pricy, but definitely worth it.
The food and service was great. Menu was not huge but the items that are offered were very good. The grilled octopus appetizer was fabulous.
Lovely decor, staff, and plates. Made me consider booking with this hotel next time. ☺️
Amazing food and service and seems to be one of the only restaurants in KY wear the staff wears a mask and takes Covid seriously.
TracyC, Thank you so very much for your kind words. We're thrilled you had a great time. And yes, COVID is no joke, we're happy you noticed our efforts. See you soon! -The Proof on Main Team

Proof on Main was outstanding!! Our server Rosemary was amazing and attentive and funny. The drink of bourbon, grapefruit, rosemary and a scotch spritz was about the best drink I’ve ever had. We loved the grilled octopus! All six entrees were amazing and perfectly cooked. The bison burger was the favorite and something about the side if a zucchini was memorable!! Great choice of restaurants in Louisville!!
SusanC, Thank you for your kind words. We're thrilled you enjoyed your dining experience. See you soon! -The Proof on Main Team
Great experience from start to finish! The cocktails were amazing! The service was flawless and the food was fantastic! Highly recommend!!!
JeannieJ, Thank you for your review. We're thrilled you had a great time and look forward to you joining us again. -The Proof on Main Team
We expected to be wowed after talking to a few friends about Proof. The food was just OK, nothing that would bring us back. Good service. Trendy, but not worth the price paid and underwhelmed with the selection and taste.
Timeslikethese, We're so sorry your experience wasn't nearly up to our standards. We truly thank you for your feedback. We hope to see you again. -The Proof on Main Team
Birthday weekend dinner before going to a show. Second visit, went 4 years ago, just as delicious this round. Excellent food choices and great service. Will be back next time through Louisville.

Weekend away with friends
LisaB, Thanks for joining us! We're thrilled you had a great time. -The Proof on Main Team
Service provided by Patty was phenomenal with lots of extra touches like cotton Candy at the end. The drinks were very well priced. The portion size for the grouper dinner was smaller than expected and the octopus appetizer, although amazing, was a bit overcooked as some pieces were crunchy. We would return.
Anonymous, We're so happy you enjoyed the service and extra touches. Thank you for your feedback, we will certainly share it with our team. See you again soon. -The Proof on Main Team
Excellent food in a great location. Impressive bourbon list.

My brother, sister and I took our 95 year old mother for Sunday brunch. The brunch menu was sparse. There were no omelets, French toast, waffles, or pancakes. The hash brown was overdone. I normally do not write negative reviews, however, I expected much more from this venue
VickiK, We are so disappointed your experience was clearly not up to our standards. We truly thank you for your feedback as it is the best way for us to know areas we need to improve. -The Proof on Main Team
My wife and I went for our 3 year anniversary and it was fantastic. The food and service was exceptional. I had the strip steak and it was cooked perfectly. My wife got the chicken and hers came out perfect as well.
Anonymous, Thank for choosing Proof to celebrate your special occasion. We're thrilled you enjoyed everything and hope to see you again soon. -The Proof on Main Team
The food was incredible, and so were the drinks and spirits selection. I highly recommend the peach toast, the cornbread, the heirloom tomato and cucumber salad (wow!), roasted carrots, and strip steak. The chicken, while nice, didn’t compete with everything else on the table.

I enjoyed a delicious “hearty breakfast”— various rich flavors wonderfully woven together. My wife enjoyed a beautiful breakfast sandwich (I didn’t know that biscuits could be so healthy). We also both enjoyed two of their fruit plates, which I also recommend for their flavorful freshness and presentation. All around an exquisite meal!
Daniel, Thank you for joining us. Aren't those biscuits just the BEST??? We look forward to sharing your feedback with our team. -The Proof on Main Team
The pork chop was fantastic. Wish the menu had more items or daily specials to add. Overall fantastic restaurant.
BryanB, Thank you for your review! We're always evolving the menu so stay tuned for upcoming additions. See you again soon! -The Proof on Main Team
Excellent food, music and art!! Our mixologist, Juan, was amazing.

SRPP, Thank you so very much for your kind words. We look forward to seeing you again soon! -The Proof on Main Team
Loved this venue. Decor is creative. Staff is attentive. I had the pork chop and I can truly say it was the best pork chop I have ever had. The combo of strawberries, peanuts, and cornbread puree was fantastic. Extensive list of bourbons, too!
Stlfan, Thank you so much! We love that you loved everything! Hope to see you in the near future! -The Proof on Main Team
Outstanding meals. The menu is limited but everything we ate was excellent. Service was excellent.
Looking forward to returning.

The octopus appetizer is fabulous. Loved the cocktails too.
johnw, Thank you so much! The octopus is definitely a fan favorite, the entire city might revolt if we ever take it off our menu. Hope we see you soon! -The Proof on Main Team
We stayed at 21c and ate at Proof on Main for our 10 year anniversary. It was amazing on all levels. We will be back!!
DerrickW, Thank you for choosing us to celebrate such an exciting anniversary! Hope to see you again soon. -The Proof on Main Team
Nice atmosphere with good service but the food was only good, not as great as the hype.
We're happy to hear you enjoyed your service experience but disappointed you weren't "wowed" by the food. Thank you for your feedback as we will certainly share it with our team. -The Proof on Main Team
Thank you for your 5 star review! We hope to see you again soon. -The Proof on Main Team
Interesting decor. Mostly friendly staff. Food prepared quickly. Server was courteous and polite. All our food was excellent. Possibly a little too pricey for brunch, but the location and the art are an added bonus, so it’s definitely a lovely dining experience.
Bluekites, Thank you for your review, we hope to see you again soon! -The Proof on Main Team
Was here 7 years ago and couldn’t wait to go back. This time I was disappointed but admittedly I am critical. We ordered the octopus appetizer. The good news, it was delicious. The bad news, it came two minutes after we ordered it. Didn’t make me feel that it was cooked for me; instead it made me feel I was in a fast food restaurant.
For my entree, I ordered the fish of the day dish. It was totally over-cooked and was presented as a gray drab dish. Totally unappetizing. My son had the pasta dish which was light and tasty. Overall the menu did not seem innovative and cutting edge like last time. So mixed reviews, but no wow factor like last time.
Thank you so very much for your feedback. Happy to hear you enjoyed the octopus and pasta. We're so disappointed the market fish was not nearly up to our standards. We look forward to sharing your feedback with our team and hope you join us again in the future. -The Proof on Main Team
Food was really good, our server was amazing. Loved it here.
Heather, We love that you loved it! Hope to see you again soon! -The Proof on Main Team
Eclectic atmosphere with the friendliest staff. Perfectly attentive and gave great feedback and menu advice. The biscuits were like heavenly cake and combined with the sorghum butter and jam - perfection! We would go back again just for those.
