  • Spinach Tiger on Aug 07, 2013

    Hats off to Chef Levon Wallace for one of the top dinning experiences of my life, and I've had many great ones. I look forward to coming back with Mrs. ST for a special occasion. There is definitely a culinary trip to Louisville in the future, for a visit to Proof on Main.

  • bunsen h.Everything is really bitter here. Caveat emptor! Nice art, though?

    55555 by bunsen h.


  • Serious EatsBroadbent Country Ham Falafel is a must-order appetizer--beloved Kentucky ham is mixed in with the chickpeas before each falafel ball is shaped and fried, adding smoky pigginess to each bite.

  • Miles & Smith R.The food was over the top! Gary had the appetizer Ahi Tuna - best he's ever had and the Salmon. Minette had the Buffalo Bison, which ended being the best piece of meat she'd ever tasted. Will be back!

  • Jeff C.Very trendy atmosphere and wonderful drinks, but the service is entirely too slow and cavalier for the prices they charge

  • Shaheer B.Posh little bar with a strikingly surreal decor. The place is furnished with a nice blend of high tables akin to a formal setting and large comfortable couches. Wear a casual jacket at the least.

  • Top Tier TravelThis is a New York worthy restaurant!. This sounds weird but you HAVE to go & take a look at the Men's restroom...the urinal is 1 of a kind! Reservations during Derby have to be made months in advance

  • James D.Best Sazerac outside of New Orleans.

    55555 by James D.


  • Metromix L.The food is delicious, the drinks are wonderful, but it's the decor that makes Proof on Main worth going to. Plus, the restaurant located inside 21c Museum Hotel boasts the best bathroom in the city.
