Told checks could be separated prior to arrival as I had communicated this. While there, the checks were placed together and it was communicated rudely with my daughter and her friends/family by their female waitress. Some of their food was like warm as well.

I enjoyed my time here. My food was okay just cold and overcooked. My waiter was so busy he couldn't check on us as much. He apologize a lot and the other staff helped him but it was not enough. I mainly went to take pictures and the hostess was amazing and helped up a lot. I enjoyed the experience but will not be back.

The overall experience was great! I went for brunch and was looking forward to chicken and waffles but I did not like my waffle and my chicken was okay. My boyfriend’s food was better.

The food here is just mediocre with a hefty price tag. We liked that it was quiet and off the beaten path of the night life of downtown. Everything else was just so so.

The bartender started an argument with me. We were the only table waiting for food and drinks over 30 mins while other tables received there apps, and drinks. The manager had to come over and comp some items due to the poor service and racial injustice we received

We arrived at the Ainsworth and our table had been given away. Once we were finally seated, it took 20 minutes for anyone to take our drink order. Proceeding this, we ordered our drinks, appetizers, and entree. Our entrees came out before our appetizers AND our drinks. They forgot one persons order entirely.

My friends and I went to Ainsworth for brunch on a girls weekend. The atmosphere was fun and energetic with great music and our waitress was attentive and provided suggestions. It took almost two hours to get our food and some of it was lukewarm, if not cold when it arrived to the table. Some of my friends got their food first and others didn’t get theirs until about 15 minutes after. The experience was okay overall but I would only come back here for the cocktails!

We made a reservation two weeks prior for a family birthday celebration. We were highly disappointed with the service food and drinks. The appetizers and meal we asked for were all “out of stock” (Salmon, buffalo cauliflower, and the Brussel sprouts). They were also out of Cabernet. We all ordered salads and the chicken was so salty it was inedible along with the dressing that was stuck in the dressing cup. Chef came out and took away all of our salads so we didn’t eat a meal. They felt bad and brought out a free slice of chocolate cake. Food was inedible. We ordered two chop salads, one came out looking good and the other was half made. Chef who came out was actually just the server. Would not recommend if you want an edible meal.

My partner and I went to our reservation at 5:30pm. They were out of salmon. Even though we called to make sure it was something they served. It was very noisy. I was expecting something more quiet. I would go again just for the drinks.

I came here for brunch with a bunch of friends and had a fantastic time. Our waitress was excellent and quite friendly. There was great music and an overall happy brunch party feel.

Pros - Love the aesthetic of the place. Loved the food and diversity of people. Was seated right on time.

Cons - My food and one of my friend’s food came cold. The waitress rarely checked on us. We had to wave down other waiters to even get our own waitress. Our waitress name was Jenna (I think) She was paying more attention to another table than to ours. She honestly rarely checked on us. My hash browns were cold and I expected more out of a $18 omelette plate. The only thing my friends and I agreed on that was good were the mimosas and the DJ.

If I’m going to overpay for drinks, I would at least like them to be strong. Margaritas are way too sweet and vodka sodas tasted like it had 1/4 shot of vodka in them. Great vibe but too pricey for what you get food/drink wise

I’ve come to ainsworth a few times now. The first time I visited the food/Mimosas were amazing along with great music but seems like the more I go the worse everything becomes. I definitely have to find me a new brunch spot to visit.

We took a friend for her 26th birthday and had the best time! The food was great and the cocktails were amazing. I ended up getting the hot chicken slider appetizer as my meal and I was not disappointed. We had the sweetest server and an awesome experience overall. Can’t wait to come back!

So Ainsworth was not even packed how they normally are and the service was slow and not good. We waited almost 20 minutes before we could even put our drink orders in. The waitress wasn't menu savvy at all and the food was cold.
