Not Your Average Joe's Gaithersburg
Perfect for Mother's DayI took my wife and two older boys here for Mother's Day. The food was great and the service was excellent. I know it is a little thing, but we especially liked the bread they served before the meal. My wife really liked the dip for the bread, too.
We would definitely come back again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent attention and food.excellent attention and food. I especially like that any waiter will help you, and not just your primary waiter.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThey are attentive to foodThey are attentive to food allergies, which we appreciated. Food is excellent (though some dishes seemed old and pre-made including veggie spring rolls).5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwsome Menu --great foodThere were so many choices of entres for dinner that are we were thrilled to find. Many of them not at most restraurants. The food was great and the portions were huge!
Also we had reservations for 7 pm and were seated within 1minute of that time.

I will definately recommend this restaurant to others.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great serviceHad dinner here following a drive up from Florida. Food was outstanding for our threesome - ahi tuna wontons, buffalo chicken pizza, sausage and onion pizza, NYA salad, house salad and balsamic glazed salmon over jasmine rice with asparagus. Even bought a gift card for a Mom-day present. Our waiter's service was right on target. We don't live in the area but on the past two visits to MD we have had dinner here and it was
great both times. Definitely looking forward to dining here again on our next trip to MD.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGFGreat gluten free options.

The outdoor dining is very nice.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis night was very specialThis night was very special as they were donating 10% of the proceeds to help Boston. I thought this was the nicest and thoughtful thing to do. I made a point of showing up as did a lot of other people in the neighborhood. There food is really good and the service is always fast. The waitstaff is wonderful and very attentive. I would definitely come back again.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's a No-Brainer!We're NEVER disappointed -- and always amazed that it just gets better and better. So sorry to all the other restaurants in the area (and there are a LOT) -- when we treat ourselves to a meal out, we go to Not Your Average Joes!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWeekday LunchServer arrivedWeekday LunchServer arrived soon after we sat down to take drink orders. Was very timely with order taking, and food arrived quickly. Our second time as a workday lunch and again had good food, good service, and ability to return to work in a timely manner. My only complaint would be that it is very noisy, but tables are far enough apart that you weren't hearing others' conversations, just a hubbub. Would definitely eat here again and would like to try for dinner.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place but...Be careful what you order, sometimes you can make the same things at home.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWent with the family for grownWent with the family for grown daughter's birthday. Food was very good. They now have a handfull of $25 wine bottle specials and $10 pours of select outstanding wines.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ate outside as it was aWe ate outside as it was a warm, spring night. The restaurant has set up a beautiful ambiance but it is on a fairly busy corner so the loud sounds of the cars sometimes ruined the ambiance the restaurant is trying to create.
The food and presentation was fantastic and the wait staff were very attentive. I even ordered one particular item and our waitress asked some questions of my "likes and dislikes" and then steered me towards another item that was similar to what I had ordered but fit my answers better. Very impressive.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMRave reviewLove eating at Joe's have experienced nothing but great service, prompt delicious food and super friendly staff. We love it!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat crab cake BLT. GoodGreat crab cake BLT. Good atmosphere and selection of food and drinks. The bread and oil sauce combo is a wonderful free treat with your dinner. Almost better than an appetizer. Just make sure to get a reservation through open table otherwise the wait can be frustrating and slightly biased.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous time! Great food!Awesome food, trendy environment and waitress all so friendy! We all had a really nice time and the blueberry sangria is a must! So good! We defintely will go back again to try other dishes.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great. One of theFood was great. One of the salads came out a little small, so we made a comment to the waiter and next thing we knew we had a new salad.
My only complaint would be that we had 2 babies with us, and Not Your Average Joe's didnt know that until we showed up, even though we had it in the requests section on Open Table. Luckily they found us a table, but it could have been a problem.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time just as goodThis was our second visit to NYAJ and it was very good again. This time I had Salmon Vietnamese and it was very good. We skipped appetizers this time and split a dessert among the four of us. Had a nice bottle of wine and the total bill was $135 including tip for the four of us and we ate well.
We will go again.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great experience atAnother great experience at the Kentlands location of Not Your Average Joe's.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMVEry good food and enjoyableVEry good food and enjoyable experience.

The prices are moderate to high, and the food quality is excellent. I only mention this because I can come there for a special occasion or to have a business lunch. I can't afford to come there every day but I do love NYAJ. Please be there and I will come as often as possible.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I just discoveredMy husband and I just discovered this restaurant. We were very impressed. Excellent food and service. In addition, it has a separate gluten free menu that was very extensive - and even had a hot fresh gluten free role to start the meal. That was a great surprise - and forgot how much I missed hot bread - and it was really good too!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AM"This was our first time at"This was our first time at NYAJ. I loved the relaxed feeling of this place - casual, trendy, and classy. I had the grilled salmon ~ which was delicious! My friend had the paella, which he said was also delicious ~ and I will try next time. On the day of our visit, there were a group of young ladies w/their mother celebrating a birthday, and the noise level at times made it difficult to hear. However, it was good to see customers having fun and celebrating, and it would not keep us from returning. Service was well-timed and friendly. We will definitely return to try more dishes."4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat DinnerServers were attentive and knowledgeable. Food presentation was beautiful. Everyone in our party loved their dish. Definitely will return for a visit.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good but theyFood was very good but they ran out of the product that we went there to have. Manager nice enough to give us a free meal for one.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMNot average, delicious!They cater each dish to your liking. Replace cous cous with spinach if you desire. Very accommodating!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as usual. I'm from NewGreat as usual. I'm from New Orleans and something of a jambalaya snob, but had to call out the chef to praise their jambalaya. We are regulars and keep coming back.
JGB3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been here many timesWe have been here many times and have only had bad service one time due to our server being disorginised and seemingly stressed over being busy. By far one of the best service resturants in the D.C. Metro area. The food is very good and most employees seem to be in a team effort enviroment which adds to the great service.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed Not YourWe really enjoyed Not Your Average Joe's ... the service was really good, they had a interesting drink menu, and the food was very good as well. The place was packed on a Wednesday night, so that must be saying something!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and great food. 'NotGreat service and great food.
'Not Your Average Joes' is quickly becoming our favorite resturant.
Excellent!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall very good. We hadOverall very good. We had a reservation and were seated immediately on a crowded Saturday night. Food was promptly served. Everyone in our party of five felt that the appetizers and desserts were more flavorful than the entree. Sticky menus.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good dinnerWent for a nice dinner with friends we traveled with internationally last Summer. They have sophisticated tastes and preferences. Our dinner was very good. I had fish as did my wife, and we had a nice beef rib appetizer which was all very good. Our friends had the signature pot roast and fish and they were very pleased. We only had enough room to share a dessert, but it was a fine evening and we will eat here again soon.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat PlaceGreat place to have dinner for two or enjoy a large group. Always make a reservation because it is a busy place. Great service.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMCorned Beef and CabbageWent to Not Your Average Joe's for St. Patrick Day corned beef and cabbage dinner. Had 5:00 pm reservation so we were able to beat the crowd and lucky we did as they only had 5 corned beef and cabbage dinners left. Portion was hugh and tasty. Cabbage had a lot of hard core and could have had a little more edible leaf but all in all, I enjoyed it. And they had red wine vinegar for my cabbage!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT PIZZA!LOVED the pizza but my husband had the "special" of corned beef and was not happy...meat was tough, knife couldn't cut through, not enough potatoes or cabbage. Second time he got the "special" and was sorry he did. We do really like NYAJ and other times the food has been great.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food for jolly people!We ate at Joe's on my birthday, and were able to use a truly sensational birthday special offer. In fact, what I ordered (the scallop entree) was truly sensational. Joe's has truly a jolly atmosphere, in part because of the acoustics -- no carpeting (or little of it) so there can be quite an echo. You're better off knowing that in advance! We had eaten there before, so we knew. :)3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGluten Free FavoriteOur daughter has Celiac disease and can't have any wheat gluten. The gluten free menu and carefulness of the staff is excellent. Food for everyone was very good, both gluten containing and gluten free.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOur meal was delicious, andOur meal was delicious, and I especially appreciated the birthday gift I received. Very generous -- a free entree and dessert. We will definitely go back.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night out!Food was great and our waitress was amazing.
