Very disturbing to say the least. I️ guess the most disturbing is the number of people who like it! Food was overpriced, and just ok. Octopus was good, bass looked very good, pumpernickel pasta and pork was horribly salty. But...Naked children with genitalia exposed, cross...More

Neat venue with interesting artwork, but food did not amaze. No one at my table raved about their food. We started with horseradish ricotta, and I had a veggie dish with spaghetti squash which seemed to only vaguely resemble what was described on the menu....More

Fantastic service, innovative farm to table menu, great wine/drinks, and the most memorable art museum environment around! Simply a must see for all locals and their out of town guests!

Ok - Proof on Main is unique. It and the adjoining hotel were created to generate revenue to fully fund a free modern art museum that’s open 24 hours a Day. But wait - this isn’t the usual museum fare. The food is as fine...More

The restaurant, Proof and the hotel, 21c are all part of the museum complex. So your walk to the shared restroom is filled with art installations that change out regularly, there's also art in the bathrooms themselves.
