    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.

    Been there in a nice and hot afternoon, the patio was nice, quiet and breezy. Perfect for our business meeting. Server was great and friendly. Food was good but not a lot of option for dairy free people. Overall we had a good time.

    We will not return. Little to no service. Food mediocre. Had to go and ask for someone to come a serve us after sitting for 15 minutes and being ignored. When drinks ordered, they didn't come , until a complaint was made. same with the food.

    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.

    Pretty cool spot for business lunch or meeting. Not many table seating, it’s more of a lounge setting. The food was quite good with good selection. Service was little slow because there was only one server plus the bar server, they were very polite. Overall I was very happy

    A quiet and tasteful place to enjoy a drink. Few people. Background music at a reasonable volume, allowing for fairly easy conversation. Server was very attentive and nonintrusive. All in all, a place we would go back to if they keep it like this.

    Overall we had a great experience. We dined at Proof Bar for their Igloosive Experience the night after Valentine's Day. We really liked the intimacy, the ambience and music :-) The appetizer and dessert was excellent, but unfortunately both of our mains (steak and salmon) were overcooked. Other than that, we really enjoyed the experience.

    We were there for valentines day night. Although our reservation was at 7:30pm because of the restaurant mix up we had to wait 20 minutes. Our server was amazing but the male maître d' was kinda rude and awkward. The food was alright nothing to write home about. The ambience was good as we were in a dome. Which is really the only selling point for here and the service. Try it one time but wont go back again.

    It was my birthday and I booked it for 9:30 PM, but switched it to 8:15 PM, there was no issue and everything went smooth. That whole session was 90 minutes but we got half hour more stay and enjoyed with excellent service and considerate staff who thought about the occasion and made the experience worthwhile.
