    We had a wonderful evening, our server was exceptional. The food was not what I expected or would order for myself but that is a personal choice. It came out barely warm and we asked to have it reheated and it came back basically the same. What would have added to the experience would have been music in our individual igloo. Overall it was very enjoyable.

    I had reserved a table for my sister's birthday at this restaurant two weeks in advance, hoping to surprise her with a memorable celebration. However, our experience was far from pleasant. The staff repeatedly asked us and our guests about our ability to pay an additional amount for the table, which was not only unnecessary but also rude. To make matters worse, they denied us the simple joy of lighting birthday candles until we placed an order. We ended up leaving without having dinner, feeling utterly disappointed and disrespected.

    We had a lovely evening at Proof Bar. The decor is lovely and the atmosphere was relaxed but elegant. It was also quiet so we could actually have a conversation. We had their wonderful charcuterie plates that you modify to your liking and some delicious cocktails. Outside in the courtyard there are these cool little podsthat you can dine in. They looked very cool. Absolutely want to try them next time. Overall a great experience.

    The check in was easy and staff were very welcoming and friendly. The meal was average. The risotto was warm not hot. I really missed having fresh vegetables such as a salad. The steak was very thick and not fully cooked to well done. The vegetables with the steak were very sparce. The dessert was excellent. I was shocked to see that the champagne was $80, and appears as extra on the bill. I was expecting to have an option regarding the drink. Overall, this meal was not worth the price I paid for it, something like $360+ dollars. I recently ate at Scaramouche for $260 for 2 people, and had much more food (salad, appetizer, main meal, dessert, cocktail and wine) and by far Scaramouch out shines Proof Bar. Really, the only nice thing was the igloo and dessert. I would not dine with you again.

    Amazing place ! No words. Exceptional experience at the restaurant! Despite the rain, the ambiance was cozy, and the staff went above and beyond to make our night memorable. The food was outstanding, and the rain only added to the charm of the evening. Thank you to the amazing guy that served us in this sunday night! We will be back soon.

    We went to the Pumpkin Patch dome experience and the atmosphere was lovely, the food was good, and the service was amazing. Would go again next year, and would recommend others to try it out if you want to experience a romantic, fall-themed dinner.

    I have been to this place in the past but the time I went recently (on a Tuesday night) was really quiet and not that busy. I sat inside and mostly all the tables were empty except for a couple of other parties. The patio seemed not busy either as there was only one group out there. The drinks were pretty good, they had a good but small selection of wine as well as beer. The servers were friendly and attending to my requests. If you’re looking for a good place to meet for business reasons, this is a good place.

    Terrible service. I never been anywhere that they treat you like this. We didn’t give much tip because of the terrible service and we had to deal with the server bad reaction. $25 for a espresso martini that was not well very good. Not returning at all.

    We arrived at 6:30 looking for a quick bite before an 8:00 show that was just across the street. We didn't get served our food until 7:40 and we didn't have time to finish it. The waiter was very slow, even when we informed him twice that we were going to an 8:00 show. Once we eventually got to order the food, he came back about ten minutes later to say that they were out of an item most of us had ordered. Thus, our order had not been placed and we had to keep waiting. The food was average, the service was lousy, and the prices were high. The same thing happened to two other couples we met as we were hurrying across the street. We won't ever go back.
