    Went for a bachelorette party dinner and it didn’t disappoint! It was great for a second evening out - when we were a bit tired and trying to push through. The food and drinks were delicious and fairly priced for Nashville!

    We mentioned in the reservation that we had a birthday and there was not bday special anything. Additionally, we tried to pay with commodore cards and their system was down (obvi not their fault but not ours either) and we felt it was rude to force us to pay with our own money when most of us college kids save our commodore money to go out ur for special events.

    The place was super cute for a girls night, bachelorette or birthday party. The menu was limited and the food was just okay. Lacked a bit of flavor.

    The food quality was average, there was nothing special or outstanding about it. One couple in our group got steaks that were Applebees quality, my husband got the swordfish which was very bland, I had the chicken sandwich which was average, and the other couple shared wings that they said were decent. They also ran out of steak knives with a maybe half full restaurant. Our service on the other hand was subpar at best. Mercedes was not knowledgeable to the steak or fish feature or any allergens for another person in our group. She rounded back with our table once after our food arrived and was not seen or heard from for about 30 minutes. This place is very overhyped on social media and was not worth the trip in our opinion. It might be a great some cocktails and pictures, but not as a great dinner spot.

    Was actually really disappointed in our recent visit. We hadn’t been in awhile, but used to be known for fantastic food and one of the best “party” brunches in Nashville. Our server was nice, but seemed overwhelmed. Every time we ordered drinks we were told the bar was backed up so had long waits. We kept ordering the same drinks throughout our stay and each time the same drink was either a different color or taste so bar was very inconsistent on their cocktails. The food was decent, but they only have a VERY limited menu. Condiments were only ketchup and chalula, we were told they were out of everything else. Dj was quiet but decent, the best part about this spot was all the TVs to watch the multiple game but aside from that probably won’t be back.

    The music was so loud that you could not hold a conversation. The craft cocktail menu was extensive and the drinks were very good but the brunch menu literally only had six choices. The food was average and not a good value for the money. They are very popular with the destination bridal crowd and birthday celebrations.

    Brunch was good. I would like to see a change in the menu for more variety though. Food is well prepared. Can’t go wrong with the mimosa bucket and the green tea shots. Overall a good experience just a few tweaks here and there.

    Our bachelorette group was so excited to come here but from the moment we got there it was a mess. Our table wasn’t ready despite the reservation, took 30+ min to get drinks, food was FAST but somehow cold??? We had another place to be after so we didn’t have time to send it back but took another 30+ min to get our check after asking for it. The inside is cute and the vibes are good but they’re clearly insanely understaffed.

    Ok so we are older folks but pretty open to anything. I trust comments on Open Table. This new-ish restaurant is right next to the Vanderbilt campus. The food was good and well priced. The music was way too loud…seriously, which would have been ok but 10% of the songs were triple x rated. We almost left to go next door but our server was so nice we couldn’t do it. Oh and the tvs were all changed to UFC from Titans football? Just a weird experience.

    My fav is the chicken and waffles. The recipe has changed 3x. First I’m pretty sure they used to come with jalapeños. Then the 2nd variation was pretty good. Also nice seasoned chicken breast. It was great. This last experience were these dry no seasoned tenders and it was $22. That’s ridiculous. What happened? Ainsworth has never done me like that. My entire tables chicken was dried out REAL BAD. No flavor AT ALL.

    Came here while on a bachelorette trip to Nashville. Was not pleased with the limited availability of drinks. The only non-alcoholic options were water, OJ, coke, diet coke and ginger ale. Was told they were switching management and the person in charge of ordering had not done so therefore pineapple juice and sprite were not available. Further, our waiter informed us that the kitchen does not do modifications to menu items. We simply asked for the Ainsworth burger without cheese, however it was delivered to the table with cheese still. There was a DJ playing music (we went for 12:00 on a Sunday) and the music was blaring, it was hard to have conversations with each other. Our waiter was super friendly and definitely made the experience better but I do not plan to return here in the future.

    The server was very good. Nice personality. I ordered the wings which were good. Hot and fresh. I ordered the steak and eggs which was terrible. The steak was supposed to be medium rare. It was burnt with no season or taste. I asked for scramble very soft eggs. They were hard like rocks with a slice of cheese on the top. My husband wanted french toast. The server told us there was no syrup. He said someone went to the store to buy some. Didn't know when they would be back. By the time the food came out, the person was back. All of the staff are very personable and nice.
