Amazing experience. Cool atmosphere. Kind greeting and exceptional service. Drinks were yummy. Food was served fat and hot and full of flavor. The attention was amazing. Went for a celebration and felt doted on. Already booked a reservation in July for my birthday dinner. We were there for the brunch. If you haven’t been , you won’t be disappointed. Music is a bit loud.

Everything was delicious! My friends and I started with the Coco Loca drink (a frozen pina colada) and the truffle flat bread. The app was on the smaller size but perfect for three people. I split the RVC burger with a friend and it was plenty for both of us. My other friend and the Mac and cheese burger and it was huge! Both tasted absolutely delicious. We ended the night with one of the best espresso martinis I’ve had! The menu was a bit pricey but all worth it, especially for a celebration or special occasion! Service was fantastic and the energy was super fun for a Saturday night.

I had the brick chicken it was completely tasteless and the Brussel sprouts were mush. This is not a steak house. Worst of all was the noise. Above nearly every other table was a giant speaker. They BLASTED crappy music to a level of physical discomfort and raised the music even louder for every birthday .

WAY TOO LOUD. Food was very good, service was good, staff was very nice. But the music is way too loud, was hard to hear the person across the table from me. Don’t know if I’d go back because of this

Waitress was very in our face while waiting to order, then virtually non existent.

It was incredibly loud with the music and we had to yell to hear each other at the table.

The burger was cooked ok but there was no flavor to the meat , no salt or pepper even.

Had to ask our waitress and two other staff 3x to get a to go box. And had to ask our waitress 3x for the check.

The restaurant was very noisy . The food was average yet very expensive. It ranked towards Manhattan prices. I was not happy with picking this restaurant. I don’t think it will be a restaurant I would visit again in the future.

First time at the Ainsworth and we enjoyed it! Cocktails were delicious, appetizers were yummy (we tried the wings, flatbread and zucchini), and dinner was all around very good. Two of us had the salmon and it was wonderful! I usually do not order salmon out as I prefer the way I make it but this was moist on a bed of hummus, cucumbers and pita chips.
So good! The zucchini app was a large serving and easily shared. Several members of our party had the burgers with rave reviews. Our waitress was attentive and chatty... she understood the noise level made it hard to hear and worked hard to compensate. Which leads me to the only down side of the restaurant - music blaring made it very hard to carry on a conversation!

We went to celebrate our anniversary. The server was polite an d helpful. The restaurant was not to busy Enjoyed an appetizer and a salad we both had individual entrees. My wife thought that the pork chop was very good, I had the chicken and waffles also very good.
There were no specials, it seems that they do what they do very we, we expect to return.
