    We attended before a show at Footprint Center. It was not staffed. Long waits, no attention other than taking orders, delivery and the bill. They added the tip to the ticket though we were a party of two. Maybe better on s slower day.

    The photos make this place out to be a nicer end restaurant but it was a club scene and no one was working as a hostess when we walked in. It was not at all what I expected & I won’t return.

    This place is so so with below average food and cocktails. Great location and its unfortunate they cant do better with the quality of food. Lots of gimmick menu items that are great for Instagram but miss the bar

    Hostess was bad. Eventually seated at a table with a broken top that was one screw loose from tipping over. Never saw a waitress, so after 10 minutes we bailed. Too many options now in downtown Phoenix. The couple next to us, while we sat, looked miserable and had regret all over their faces as they too had no service. I’d eat at the Fry’s wine bar before even setting foot in the place. It will be closed within a year, guarantee it. Let’s just say, pun intended, Ainsworth going to this dump.

    Very loud inside with limited seating outside. More of a sports bar club atmosphere than a nice dinner Resturant. Food selection is limited but taste was good. Just not the experience we were look for. Club scene would be good…

    It was really busy because it was before the Suns game, so I don't want to leave low marks, BUT it was a long time to get food. About 45 minutes just for a couple burgers and nachos. It's a hip place, would return. Good energy and vibe, lots of televisions, big screens, located across from Footprint center. They have some unique cocktails also, so that was appreciated.

    What is shown on the website and what you get are 2 very different things. I thought we were going to an upscale pub, not a sports pub with the musics blaring over us. I asked to if they would turn the music down and they did for 15 minutes. The drinks were ok and our food came out warm, not hot. My steak was over cooked. It was a little disappointing.

    Love the atmosphere, I didn't know Ainsworth did breakfast and brunch. Our waiter was awesome and then they had a DJ, great vibe. The tempura vegetables were extremely tasty. I had the traditional breakfast and it was good. The drinks were on point also.

    Food & Service is great. Music is a little too loud. Couldn't have a comfortable conversation. And even too loud for our server to take our order but she got it right. Order of Sparkling Rose didn't taste right and it was served in a coffee mug.

    Visiting our kids at college. We’re floored into Vegas and watched a store at the arena across the street. After many requests, they never dropped the DJ volume level. It was like being at a club in Vegas. We and multiple people and friends we invited were walking out of aDisney show. Not only our tables were uncomfortable.

    Not sure why we didn't realize this is more of a sports bar atmosphere when we booked. The drinks were good, food was regular bar food. I had chicken sandwich and fries. After 10 on the weekends it turns into a club for the college students. Had we known,we probably would have gone somewhere else.

    We had a great experience here for a birthday get-together! The server, Lauryn B. was EXTREMELY attentive, accommodating, quick, and overall made the experience awesome. The food is your typical bar-type food, fried foods, burgers, etc. so don’t expect too too much. We came here before we went to a show and had appetizers and a TON of drinks. It wasn’t very crowded but there was good vibes and energy. The music is a little loud as others had mentioned, however, we were all still able to chat across the table from each other. Good experience and we’ll return, especially because of the location. Again, Lauryn was awesome and made our dining experience wonderful!

    Server was great and place was very accommodating for our large group. Birthday shoutout was on point, but the food was just sooo bad. I’ve eaten there before and had a great experience, but 15/15 of us said that we did not like anything we got to eat. I got the chilaquiles with smoked chicken and it was literally tortilla chips with some dry eggs, and a tablespoon of green salsa. The place was nice and the music was good and the bottomless deal was very good too.

    When asked my server if it was actual lox and bagel or smoked salmon (because description said smoked salmon) she said it is not true lox but actually smoked salmon. When it arrived it was lox, just needs a better understanding of menu. Also truffle fries were okay, they were undercooked.

    We ate there prior to a concert at The Footprint Center. They were extremely busy and we could barely hear our conversation at the table. They had some type of “Texas Night.” All the staff was friendly and professional. Our wine was served in plastic/acrylic glasses and we didn’t even eat outside. Ugh! Having eaten there before, we were disappointed that they were out of two of the items we wanted to order. So, we had to order an alternative. What we ordered was good.

    I was charged $5.00 per person for a reservation I did not need, it made no difference. Service was slow, waitress was rude. Food was bland, and it was cold. Also, they forgot about my nachos, and waiter got upset when I reminded her about them. Drinks were expensive and not quality. Tip was automatically included even when there were only 4 of us, not a large group. I will never go back.

    Wonderful experience. My server was burntout from working the brunch shift but that did not stop her from making me feel comfortable and well assisted. Her energy was everything i loved it. I wish i was Phoenix for a little longer so i could Experience brunch at the Ainsworth! Thank you so much for the great hospitality.
