Best meal we had in Louisville. Beet salad, charred octopus, halibut, pecan pie. Creative ingredients made for a multi level taste sensation. Patti, our server, knew, understood, explained, and recommended the dishes. She was spot on. Greatly enjoyed our meal.

Food, service, and atmosphere excellent. The appetizers were very good...baby octopus, meatballs with cheese (sounds pedestrian and was not), and cheese board. My pork tenderloin entree was smoky, tasty, perfectly done. Attentive service. Excellent bread with fresh tasting butter. Each dining room has different decor,...More

The restaurant, Proof and the hotel, 21c are all part of the museum complex. So your walk to the shared restroom is filled with art installations that change out regularly, there's also art in the bathrooms themselves.
