"I ate at Jane's Eatery twice in one week. That never happens with me, and it shows how much I loved the food here," Yelper Rashid M., who reviewed Jane's Eatery on April 25, wrote. "The shrimp was cooked perfectly, and it combined with the mango salsa and the taco to create one of the best shrimp tacos I ever had."

"We ordered the Cali burger and carnitas tacos. Both were delicious!" William K. said. "The burger was juicy and the breaded avocado was scrumptious. The tacos were generously filled and the pork bits were crunchy."

And Yelper Steven R. agreed, "We ordered the carnitas tacos, sloppy joes, and the fried chicken burger. All of it came out delicious! After we went right back to the counter and ordered dessert; we tried the homemade cheesecake and tiramisu cake. They were some of the best we've tried. "

In a few weeks, look for the gold-covered chicken wings The Ainsworth is introducing at all its locations.

With a 3.5-star rating out of seven reviews on Yelp, The Ainsworth in FiDi is still finding its way, but it's early days.

Stacie W. noted, "I highly recommend the Roosevelt cocktail. Very refreshing and tropical. And they put a beautiful flower in it! We had a whole bouquet of fresh flowers by the time we left!"

But Yelper Amanda K. was less impressed: "I don't understand why I never get decent service at any Ainsworth. ... We ordered two glasses of champagne. One (not two) came out maybe 20 minutes later. And we waited so long for her to get our check the clients had to leave and I sat there alone and embarrassed."
