    Surprisingly good food and we ordered a ton of items. Attentive and friendly service. However we were there on a Sunday afternoon for NFL football and the blasted techno the entire time. Now I love techno but not during football Sunday. You have 30 screens for football that’s the only day you shouldn’t be blasting music. Can’t ever go back.

    Unfortunately we did not have a good experience, despite hearing great brunch reviews. This place was severely understaffed. Myself and 3 others went for the bottomless mimosa brunch. It took 20 minutes to get a drink. We put in our food order and then overheard someone saying the kitchen is backed up for 2 hours so we asked our server if this was true. She confirmed the kitchen was indeed backed up for over an hour. She did not tell us that it would take so long when we placed our order, so we cancelled our food order and asked for the check for just the mimosas so we could leave. This of course took another half hour. I felt bad because the severs were doing what they could. I certainly don’t blame them. But it causes for such a terrible dining experience when that happens and I won’t be back at this location.

    Celebrating a milestone birthday but there was no special acknowledgment or dessert provided by the venue. Service was polite but not accurate as requested substitutions were not made by chef or not communicated by server and had to be corrected. Food was OK.

    Don’t come here. And don’t get the poke bowel unless you want your food to not have things in it that’s on the menu or your food covered in wasabi even though wasabi isn’t on the menu.

    Seems like more of a bar than a restaurant but at lunch time that was not a problem. The waitress/bartender was excellent. So friendly and helpful. The burgers were really good. If you are in the area, this place should be an option for you.

    waitress was nice, made sure we got our worth for the bottomless price. the food itself was not great and vastly overpriced. probably the worst avocado toast i’ve ever had in the city. the eggs were served in an extremely watery bowl and toast was very sad

    I had a birthday reservation for 7/24/22. I requested a section on the rooftop. 3 hours prior to my reservation, the restaurant called to tell me that they were no longer offering rooftop services because of the heat advisory, (completely understood). I decided to keep the reservation and dine indoors. For a Sunday at 1pm, I did find the inside of the restaurant to be quite dark- but I do understand if that is their aesthetic. I must admit, however, that it did dampen my birthday mood. Upon arrival, my friends and I chose to do the bottomless bellinis. Our waitress brought us glasses that were filthy and had lip imprints on them. We sent the glasses back and she brought us back small wine cups because all of their "other mimosa/bellini glasses were broken." Wow. The new cups were slightly cleaner, but smelled like they were cleaned with dirty sponges and the bellinis were sub par. We each took one sip and left everything on the table. By that point, I direly wanted to leave and chose to head to a completely different restaurant. We paid for the bellinis and paid an automatic 20% gratuity fee on top of it. Overall, The staff was apologetic, but I was disappointed in what became of my birthday plan.

    This restaurant is great! We came to their bottomless brunch for a friends birthday and we definitely had a great time. The food was great and so was the staff. The only issue was that it was so hot and the umbrellas were really doing much at the time, however, we purposefully chose to sit out on the rooftop. The scenery was great and I will definitely be back!

    We went there for a business lunch in the middle of the week. The place was almost empty except for us, and we still had to wait long stretches of time to place drink orders, app orders, and meal orders. The staff was nice at least (no issues there). The food was slightly elevated pub grub - not bad - not great. I hear there are days/times when it is super busy and fun at this place, so maybe I was just there at a time that was not optimum for a good experience. Maybe I'll give it another try some day, but I won't do it for lunch with customers again.

    I visited the Ainsworth Midtown for my birthday! It was a Tuesday! Service was very good and everyone was attentive. We loved the signature watermelon drink, but they ran out of watermelons. My guest loved their beef burgers with macaroni and cheese. They did not have the item I wanted… the beef short ribs Mac and cheese. I chose the steak. It was not medium as I requested, but I ate it. My overall experience was very good because of the service. I just wish they had what I came for. I would definitely recommend the restaurant and hopefully they have those items that you want!

Our server was a Irish girl extremely nice and pleasant . She got yield by the bartender wen wen to double check questions we had about combining out vouchers and bottomless options from the menu. Well food was good and the out door nice. Drinks where ok”

    Terrible service… I don’t think she even asked us how the food was. Never came back to check on us. Since we had a party of 7, the gratuity was already included so she didn’t have to make an effort with our group. Definitely disappointed.

    I love the Ainsworth and had truly enjoyed my last bunch experience a few months ago. When my cousins and sister from LI and NJ respectively offered to meet in NY, for a belated sister bday brunch, I immediately thought again of Ainsworth. As a trainer in hospitality, I was truly caught off guard when taking the group to dine yesterday (6/11). There was no crowd, and we dined in the main room (maybe it’s nicer rooftop dining?). When the server came over, she didn’t welcome us, or seem to notice we had brought a clearly special needs teen. I needed to tell her we had 2 Pulsd codes. She then asked what we wanted, and not only did we just sit down, but she never said we needed to scan the codes, let alone tell us what beverages came with brunch. Sadly, that start told me everything about what would happen next. When I dared asked what drinks we could get, she did not mention beer, or that fact we could always change drinks if we wished. I asked about blue moon (I had last time) and she said that wasn’t included. When I asked if the drinks changed (pretty sure that was listed in deal), she shrugged and said she didn’t know. Now, I’m fine with things changing, and absolutely enjoy mimosas, but part of my reason for recommending was that two of us were looking forward to cold blue moons. Next….she disappeared. I asked another server a couple of menu questions. She was LOVELY and we asked if she could be our server but I guess she could not (so sorry I didn’t get her name). Our server finally came back and we started to order. After asking for 2 entrees, she said “will that be all?” At that point I was convinced I was on candid camera because I had to remind her we had 5 people at the table - what do you mean??
