We ate here because we had all just arrived for business and it was in walking distance of our hotel. I made a reservation the day before on Open Table. The choices were varied from Raw Bar to Charcuterie for starters. We all ate the seafood entrees. I had the grilled salmon with mustard greens and a side of roasted... More

We had been to Proof before and it did not disappoint on return. Key to their menu are fresh ingredients. Scallops are mouth watering. Tuna tartare was the best I ever eaten: chunks of tuna mixed with soy and wasabi on cracker points. Perfect balance of hot and flavor. The sticky toffee pudding would satisfy a Scotsman. Awesome wine list... More

Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, beef and pork. It was all fine. The genre may be starting to wear on me. Good wine list.

I have been going out in the restaurant scene of DC since 2001. I love good quality food, tocook it and to eat out (I am Italian). Unfortunately, 2 years ago I fell sick and found out I have gastroparesis (a paralysis in the muscles of my stomach). This means I can't eat solid food. All food has to be... More

It's OK but overpriced, wine list is very deceiving and overpriced. Watch out. They charge by the ounce and by the glass. The food was cold. The server saved the day and the Toffee Cake desert was excellent. Would not return.

We each had the kale salad. It was fair, underwhelming based on the reviews praising it so much. We each had the meatballs, which were great. I had the gnocchi, which were also great but VERY rich. I think they could dial back the cheese a bit and not lose anything. The waiter recommended a nice red wine. They were... More

We had a great celebratory lunch at Proof this week that was perfect for the occasion (a courthouse wedding). Proof is located in the Verizon Center/Chinatown neighborhood and also close to the Judiciary Square and Gallery Place Metro stops. It's also a short walk to the DC courts building, if you're getting married, finishing jury duty, or being given a... More

Friends dinner, tasting menu with wine pairings, four course meal. Pretty good and the favorite was the manchengo cheesecake for dessert ( amazing). Wine pairings were right on and I cannot wait to go there again. Good service.

I love eating here before Verizon Center events. Food is consistently good with excellent service. The sommelier is knowledgeable and they have a very good and reasonably priced wine list. There is valet parking.

Went on a Friday, 5:00, just as they opened. Place was empty and grabbed a seat in the bar area for happy hour. Bar tenders know their stuff. The place filled up fast. Gets loud and fun. Happy hour specials are decent and the nicely priced. Service was great even in the crowded bar area. The servers were always checking... More
