    We enjoyed a meal made with fabulous fresh ingredients at Proof urban before heading to Vicar Street . It restored my faith in restaurants as it is terrific value and offers lots of choice . It has modern vibrant decor and a very busy cocktail bar . We will be back

    The pizza is poor here. It's the base. It's too thick. Hard to cut. Not enjoyable. The restaurant music was on too loud. If you sit near the pizza oven you'll be too hot as it radiates heat. Staff are very nice however! Decor is very funky. Won't be back unfortunately.

    Rang to cancel the day of the booking due to a member of the party testing positive for covid. Still charged a late cancellation fee even though we are required to follow government guidelines. I can understand a late cancellation fee for other circumstances but not when it’s mandatory to isolate. Won’t book again

    Very slow service, we went before a show and ended up missing the first few minutes of it as a result. We had booked in 90 minutes before the doors opened for the show. The food was fine but hard to focus on as we were trying to eat quickly.

    I will never go again we had booked for four. One of our party was sick. We spent a lot and had enjoyed it however I have just now been charged 10€ for the person who couldn’t show. The place was not booked up there were empty tables so we did not stop anyone else from having a table due to one perso. Find this very unpalatable to get this taken from my account a day later after spending 170€

    Tables too small, service was basic, place was warm but decor at the back and in the toilets is a bit run down. Most of the 7 in my group didn’t think the food was anything to write home about. The veg past did was a bit bland. The caprese was nice but it definitely wasn’t plum tomatoes they used as per menu. Won’t be going back in a rush.

    I was so disappointed as had been dying to try here. The Maitre’d was unfriendly and I had to find a server and ask them to take our order as no one came near us. The pizzas were a complete disappointment-the bases looked like they were bought pre-done. They were way too uniform and had barely any sauce. One of the group had a pasta dish and said it was lovely so if you have to eat here maybe avoid the pizza. None of the starters were enjoyable either. The decor is lovely but that’s where the nice experience ends.

    Second visit to proof. Not a patch on our first visit. White wine range poor. No sign of rose. Cocktails seemed very diluted. But most of all the pizza was like leather. Closest thing to a frozen pizza. No comparison to previous visit. One male staff member was particularly pleasant, others not too bothered. Disappointing.

    Plenty of tables and we were sat in front of a blue door that has a whole in it, so the entire dining experience I was cold. I saw our meal on its way to us, and as server turned, the pizza slid off the board and onto the floor. I know it was a accident, and I wouldn’t have thought about it again, but she never acknowledged what happened, even though she knew I saw this happen, which made it awkward and was the reason our food was delayed. My boyfriend asked for another Diet Coke twice and it never came. Now for the good part: The (redo) pizza was great. The toppings were well thought out and the flavor profile was on point. It was also cooked perfectly. The sauce was perfect. I highly suggest this place for take out.

    Went here on the basis of a recommendation and was disappointed. Extremely salty pizza and the sauce hadn’t bonded to the pasta to make a proper dish. On the plus service was prompt and I don’t remember it being expensive .

    Lasagne was delicious. Smokie flatbread was very small (that was the large portion) it was hard and very little to it. Cheesecake was great, baileys coffee was watery, I didn’t finish it. The restaurant was busy had a great atmosphere but staff were under pressure and it showed

    We were greeted straight away and brought to our table. The service was amazing. We were served by a couple of different people who were all lovely. We were served mostly by one man who said it was his second day and he was so nice. He was very efficient and had a lovely manner. The food was so really nice so fresh and I would definitely go back

    Went here with pals as it was handy for vicar st. It's a nice place with cute decor. The menu was a little disappointing, no pasta options besides lasagna. The pizzas we got were absoloutely fine. Didn't blow me away but did the job. My first glass of wine wasn't that cold when it came out so I had to ask for the second one to be colder. All in all it was a fine experience but I wouldn't go back.

    Really nice restaurant, tasty food & good service. It’s just the layout of the tables is a little awkward. I had booked a table a month in advance for four people and we weren’t facing eachother. One was beside me on the couch & the other two were at the far end of each table. Place is too small for the amount of people that was there. Even staff found it awkward getting around.
