Unfortunately, Ainsworth East Village has had to close due to a demolition of the building. We are sad to see this store go but look so forward to welcoming you to the re-opening of Ainsworth Chelsea in Summer/Fall 2022!

In the meantime, we invite you to join us at Ainsworth Hoboken, Ainsworth Nashville or any of our Paige Concepts sister properties in Manhattan and Brooklyn!

    I made a reservation and had to put in my credit card information to hold the table. I got a confirmation email and everything. However, when I got to the restaurant, it was closed and had been closed for nearly a month. I’m not sure why it’s still available for reservations and why credit card information is required. Disappointing for sure

    Service was great. They let us have a cabana without a spending minimum because it was slow. Food was really not good, but I guess that’s not why you come here. They let us put a soccer game on tv as well.

    Had 2 cocktails and an order of the golden wings. My first cocktail wasn’t to good, but I didn’t want to send it back…I feel bad! The wings were actually really good. Definitely a bit of a splurge but totally worth it! I would definitely go back for them again.

    Potato chip nachos, Chelsea burger and tuna tartare we're all excellent. Our bartender, didn't get his name, but he is from Paraguay, was one of the best bartenders we've ever had. When we're back in NYC we will definitely visit again.

    We ended up leaving after receiving waters. It was so loud it was unbearable to sit in the restaurant. We came to watch the game but couldn’t stand staying in the environment. Waitress was super kind and understanding when we asked to leave.

    The food was so delicious, and as a former server I try to give people the benefit of the doubt, but our server was so horrible, we were there for 3 hours because we could never get a hold of someone - she was flirting with someone at the bar 10 feet away from us for hours instead of helping her tables. I understand it’s a bar setting, but when you have people making reservations you at least expect your drinks to be filled and to be able to order without having to hunt people down. Just overall seemed like we were inconveniencing her by being there, it was ridiculous. Bummer because the food was so delicious!! But the amount of time we wasted there because of how awful the service was, sucked.

    When my party and I arrived, the hosts seemed confused that people had shown up to eat. I stood awkwardly as the host told me just one moment and walked away with no other explanation and was gone for 5 minutes before taking us to our table. We then sat for another 10 minutes waiting for our waitress. As we sat and waited we had to scream at each other in order to hear the person sitting right next to us because the music was being played at such an extreme volume. The waitress finally came and she sighed after we all told her what we wanted as if we had just done something to upset her (we all ordered standard menu items with no modifications). Shortly after she came back to inform us that they are out of the beyond burger. Which, in all fairness happens; it is the only vegan item on the menu though so the vegan in the group just ate french fries. One positive note, the food came very quickly. However, the waitress showed up probably around when everyone was just on their second bite of food and stuck the bill out towards us and said “I brought your bill. Do you want it?” At that point we were eager to leave so we took the bill and paid before anyone at the table even had the chance to eat half of their food. Overall, left feeling confused as to what/why that experience happened. Very odd behavior, odd ambiance, odd everything. The only good thing about the experience was once the waitress finally showed up we were able to get in and get out before anything else bad could happen.

    Was surprised to find that The Ainsworth is so dedicated to being a sports bar that they don't adjust anything for weekend brunch. We arrived at 1:00 pm on Sunday to learn: 1.) they don't serve coffee, 2.) they play incrediby loud music even when most people are eating rather than drinking, and 3.) they charge restaurant prices while providing a dive bar ambience. However, my chicken sandwich was delicious, as was most of the food. The only food that wasn't good was the almost-raw bacon on the cobb salad/

    The food was very good. The outdoor seating was great. However, we had pretty poor service that went from bad to worse when groups of men showed up for football Sunday. Our waitress was busy flirting with the men to pay much attention to our group of women. We had to keep flagging her down. The drinks we ordered took over half an hour to be brought to our table by our negligent waitress and at one point, an angry looking one brought our drinks over, and she looked angry at our waitress, probably because she kept forgetting to bring our drinks over. The food was good, but not good enough to return for another meal.

    You have to have a proof of being over 21, even if it’s just for dinner. The guy at the door is extremely rude!!! The waitresses were nice and understanding. Although they ran out of 24k gold wings so I’d recommend getting there early. Also, the outdoor seating isn’t the best.
