This was my second visit to Proof on Main and once again it was a fabulous experience! We were in town to see a show at the Louisville Palace Theater and had hoped to visit a few of the bourbon tasting rooms before dinner. After two failed attempts of tasting some bourbon we headed to the bar at Proof prior to our dinner reservations, best decision ever! They have ample bourbon tasting flights and knowledgeable bar staff to guide you through them. I wish I’d caught the young man who was our bartenders name, he was great! After a flight and our first taste of Pappy (sublime!) we headed to the dining room.

We had an exceptional meal starting with the mushroom app, so amazing, and followed by the halibut, also off the charts! We rounded off dinner with two wonderful desserts paired with a lovely Sauternes! The whole meal was idyllic and memorable! We’ll look forward to our next trip with great anticipation!

First of all look around - not only the restaurant but head into the hotel and view the amazing modern art museum - really some fun stuff. The food here was simply great - we shared a 35 ounce Halibut neck as our appetizer and it was perfect. The bourbon selection is worth the visit alone.

When I found the restaurant online, I thought it would be a good place to eat. The place itself is beautiful. The wait staff was very attentive. However, the prices left us with sticker shock. If you are on a budget, you really need to see if this is affortable.

Thank you for your review,
So happy you enjoyed your meal!
Since we are a farm to table restaurant we source our ingredients during peak season from farmers we feel have some of the best products in the area. By doing this we pay a fair wage for their goods, then hand craft each dish we offer.
Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
thanks,

We found Proof on Main last year, and it was so good we made a point to return this year. The cocktail menu is fantastic. The menu is varied and uniformly high quality. And the service is consistently very good. We love the decor as well — eclectic with a connected art gallery with cool displays. There are many great places to eat in Louisville, but this is probably our favorite.

After a cocktail I always get the octopus starter with a flight of bourbons. A beet salad followed (amazing) and next was the Bison Burger. Shared a plate of local cheeses. Delightful. Service impeccable, food delicious and the bar is fantastic.
