The gold wings are horrible but the staff is amazing
Apparently the kitchen closes at 10:45 and evening reservations are not honored if “all the tables are reserved for the event” even if the dining room is completely empty and the hostess made you wait 20 minutes (and pay for parking!) before she deigns to inform you of the above. Will not be back.
They were out of salmon and the chicken takes 30 mins to prepare.
It was late, and they were closing soon. But they were very accommodating, and I didn’t notice a dip in service or quality.
This is a sports bar pretending to be a gastro pub
I haven’t been here in a while and it was pretty good. Drinks were good. Food was ok. Had the 24 karat gold chicken wings. They need to marinate them with flavor other wise the taste of the gold is too overpowering and taste like expensive foil. Mac fries were bland and they messed up the order of sliders. However our waitress was great. It’s a nice place but I understand why I do not go there often. Next time I’ll just stick to the Mac and cheese burger and beer. Lol.
I went there to record a video for the Gold Wings and all the staff (manager, servers, bartender and kitchen) was very nice and friendly with me.
Madre Mia, these wings exceeded my expectations, they are crispy and have good flavor. The Chile sauce (mild spicy) is really delicious. About the gold flavor is hard to describe but it was good. Now I can say that I have eaten gold hehe for 45$ is a nice deal.
The service and environment in this place is good. A lot of tv to watch different things.
See you soon in another review.

Hi Lynn, Thanks so much for taking the time to write this review- we are thrilled to hear that you had a wonderful time with us for a birthday celebration. We are always adding new things to our party packages and we hope to share them with you again soon! Thanks, The Ainsworth Team!
It was fun... We went for my wife's birthday and they gave us a party to remember... we were very pleased with the service and the food... Thanks for the Great Memories!
Service was absolutely horrible and our food was room temperature. Our waitress never came back to ask if we wanted more drinks or ask how everything was after our food came to the table. Pathetic.
Burger was delicious!
It was my Birthday and my BF’s Birthday. Lucky us, we got a waitress who was in training. Service was pretty poor not just because the girl in training was our waitress, but she was supposed to be accompanied by the trainer. We only saw the trainer once then she was gone the whole night. The trainee barely came by to check on us. My BF & I literally watched and stared at this girl for 5 minutes trying to get her attention. She probably thought we were checking her out, nope. We wanted to order more food and drinks. Finally we flagged her down when she went by the table next to us. We were seated next to the bar area and it was SO LOUD that my table of 4 literally sat there eating alone. My brother and cousin even had headphones on because why bother trying to talk over the crowd of people. I didn’t realize the volume of the place would be that loud that yelling while eating was necessary. There wasn’t even any kind of Birthday treat at the end. Overall, the food was good, but the service and ambiance really went downhill for a night that was supposed to be a special occasion. I’d come again, but probably not. Thank you, anyway.
Amazing the ambiance was beautiful
Great food, the vibe is relaxed and the music was awesome.
We got the 24k gold wings and the mac and cheese burger. both were messy but good.
I think that they were severely understaffed with wait staff and in the kitchen.
Tacos were amazing.. vibe was great
The 24k chicken is totally overrated. I’m really disappointed :(
The Mac & cheese fries is really good though!
The menu was limited , our waitress told us they would be closing for a month. They'd downsized the menu in anticipation of closing doors. Seemed like a nice place. Would like to go when they re-open and see the real menu
Al of the food was AMAZING! I was thoroughly impressed. I visit NY 5-8 times per year to see my best friend & we specifically came for the FoodGod Gold wings! Worth every penny! We ended up ordering 3 additional entrees (yes just for us 2) because so many items sounded good. Let me tell you, nothing on the menu disappointed at all! I will be visiting this spot every time I’m in NYC from now on!
This place advertises brunch both online and outside the restaurant, however when we got there we found out they do not serve brunch on any day.
They were transitioning... so limited in offerings as far as alcohol. Food was great...
It was too dark... music too loud...
no dessert... because kitchen was limited
Limited menu bc they are closing in 2 weeks, took an hour to get food for 2 People, was told kitchen was behind, sat by the front door with no air condition
My son and I met up for a dinner while I was visiting NYC. The Ainsworth was somewhere he wanted to try for the first time. We were seated right away (Open Table res) in the main area. Nice atmosphere and sports on the screens. Our waitress was a little slow greeting us but we were just catching up and talking. We ordered simple food steak and a salad, which took a long time to come out, my suspicion is that she didn't enter it right away as the place wasn't that busy. I don't think this is normal as the place seemed generally like a nice place, but on this specific occasion - I would not have rated the service very well. I did leave a normal tip (20%) as I didn't want to insult her or the people she has to split tips with.
The service was terrible. It took a very long time for our order to be taken and a long time to get our food afterwards. Only one waitress was working but the restaurant was not full at all and we still had bad service. We even had to wait a long time for our check to be given and taken.
It was a real nice experience the only thing is that the Mac and cheese burger is a bit dry it doesn’t taste cheesy and gold wings were alright it just had a dull taste to it and the waitress they same unhappy after I gave them at 15$ Tip when I only had 3 people dinning there with me but besides that my experience wasn’t as bad.
Went especially to try the 24karat chicken wings. Was not dissatisfied, delicious and well seasoned.
My niece thoroughly enjoyed her Mac and cheese burger!
Second time visiting. Would def return!
A friend wanted me to try the gold dipped wings because she knew I was a wing fanatic! The gold dipped wings were ok!
Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh
Love the 24k chicken wings
Burgers and salad were devoured. Mac & cheese fries were delicious. You can’t go wrong with choosing here.
Was in New York for vacation. This place was right across the street from our hotel. Great vibe, able to make reservations online on open table and the food was great! Had guacamole and chips for an app and then classic burgers with fries. Burger cooked to perfection and the overall presentation was awesome! My waitress was great and the service was spectacular. I would come here again and highly recommend this spot. Great, chill place to eat.
It’s spacious and the staff were very friendly, food was amazing definitely will go back
Had a reservation for lunch, but we waited 30 minutes for our order to be taken and another 30 for our food. There was only one server, and apparently only one cook. Food was tasty, but cold when it got to us.
Way too loud. Horrible club music
It was a business lunch. Location was convenient. Went in mid afternoon so it was empty, which was fine. Big fan of their group.
Out of three of the beers we ordered. Turkey burger um not so good. Wouldn’t go back
