We journeyed to Proof in search of a great wine bar serving yummy food. The wine by the glass choices were fantastic for both reds and whites and the chef did not disappoint with the dishes. I had the cheese and charcuterie plate, the gnocchi...More

The $14 Lunch Crush ($14 for an entree and glass of wine at the bar) is a great deal. The food is wonderful, and the service is attentive. My only complaint is that the choice of entrees is very limited and doesn't vary much.

Proof is always good. Located near Verizon Center. Valet parking. I had the hanger steak. Fairly good but I don’t think one of their specialties. My friend had the lamb and it was fantastic. Julie Child’s Walnut Apple pie for dessert. Save room!

Modern wine bar / restaurant facing the National Portrait gallery. Big on sharing plates. Good selection of wines by the glass. You have to have a meal there if you want to sit at an outside table.

We recently visited for our second time and ordered the chef's tasting menu with wine pairings for the 4 of us. The food was outstanding and we had some really unique pairings that expanded our knowledge of how wine and food come together. Reasonable prices...More

We went on a Friday evening and it wasn’t very busy at all. We had heard really good things about their wine menu as well as their charcuteries options and definitely about the venue. We were instantly greeted and sat at a booth. The young...More
