What a letdown! After reading all the glowing reviews and had bookmarked Proof as the restaurant to take my in-laws, my husband and I came for Valentine's Day celebratory dinner instead. Service was almost non existent. We had to specifically ask for the food menu and again after ordering for complimentary cracker. Our utensils were heavily stained (with sauces, yes sauces, not water marks) and had to be replaced. Our waitress was not one bit apologetic and chucked a new pair of forks at us instead. After having the most amazing seared foie gras from blue duck tavern the night prior, I knew I had to try Proof's. It was literally comparing heaven and hell. Proof's seared foie gras was the worst I've had. It was liver-y and burnt! The bread underneath was even charcoal black! Can you really hide that? I had to scrape again and again for traces of edible parts and pieces. Pan seared duck breast with pumpkin risotto - the center of my duck was iced cold. The risotto was rice and pumpkin pieces in lukewarm water. The description mentioned marmalade, I think the cook assembled my entree halfway because that too was missing. This dish was plain awful. I had never seen yelp be this wrong or I must had came on a really off night. Not going to give the benefit of doubt - Never again.

Nice wine bar and restaurant in Chinatown. The wine selection is extensive and the food is terrific.

We were seated exactly 30 minutes before the kitchen closed, and as a result (just) had access to the chef's 4-course menu. Neither of us like seafood, so they were kind enough to substitute for the swordfish course. Result: an absolutely superb meal. I plumped for the (regular) wine accompaniment, and had a delightful set of quite unusual wines that I had never encountered before, as well as a great chat with the sommelier about each one. Service was unobtrusive and highly efficient. Highly recommended.

One of my top 5 favorites in DC! Enjoy happy hour on the patio with their amazing wine list and charcuterie board, or stay for a delicious dinner in their low-lit indoor area. A must-get is their tuna tartare.

Came here for drinks one night. I loved the classy feel of this place. Great ambience, stellar wine list, and very knowledgeable staff.

I took my wife here to celebrate her birthday. I ordered beef and she ordered fish. Both dishes were phenominal and cooked to perfection. Our waitress Jill was attentive, professional, and very knowledgeable about their massive wine selection. I would highly recommend proof for a nicer dinner

The Chef's Full Charcuterie Board is an amazing mix of cured meats and cheese - perfection, add the great selection of wines and you could stop here and be in nirvana, but why stop, it only gets better. We had the tasting menu and were pleased beyond words at this hip and happening place. The bathrooms are beautiful as is everything in Proof is. As they say: Food is the Focus. Wine is the Passion. You can't miss at Proof.
