Not Your Average Joe's Lansdowne
Belated Birthday DinnerI went here for a belated birthday dinner with my husband and to use the birthday coupon i received from Joe's. The coupon was very generous - free entree and dessert. Our server was great (can't recall her name unfortunately) she was attentive and funny and even brought a candle in my sorbet for my birthday.
The food was great (i like to get the create your own pizza) and i had a great time.
Will definitely be back again!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest place for Birthdays!!!Great place to celebrate your family birthday! If you sign up online for their birthday club you get an email coupon good for the birthday persons meal & dessert. You can't beat it - good food & great service Plus a free birthday meal.
Win win !6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMInitial Contact Poor but ImprovedThe young man that came to our table initially was not very friendly, did not introduce himself, and did not deliver what we requested. His attitude was bad when asking for our drink order. We asked for water with lemon; did not get the lemon. We were very worried that he was going to be our waiter when Libby came by and introduced herself. Libby was awesome and she saved our evening.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMJoes accommodated all of myJoes accommodated all of my requests! It is very difficult pleasing 12 middle schoolers and we tend to be hard to put up with but Joes treated us like young adults which I really appreciated instead of being treated like a kid. The food was very good and there was no problems. Our waiter Caleb P was very friendly and asked about the food and met our needs. Not to mention the numerous refills(: thank you so so much! We went to joes because our best friends were moving to CA and this was the last time we saw them and I was glad it was at Joes. Thanks again!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and friendly service.Good food and friendly service. Had pizza and salad both of which were great.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food saves the dayService is spotty at best. Very noisy not fit for a romantic dinner many noisy kids. Great chef saves the day with excellent food and new choices all the time6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great staff............Great food, great staff.................. Our favorite restaurant when in Virginia.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Time Won't Be Our LastThis is a great place to bring the family or go with friends. The food selection is eclectic, but tasty. A few of the children's menu selections were more than we would usually spend, but the choices (salmon or sirloin) definitely appeased our kids, who at 11 and 12 usually fight to order something other than chicken fingers or mac and cheese. The bread and dipping oil brought to the table was savored all around. The waiter was attentive and the creme brulee cheese cake was delicious.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food. Reasonably priced.Good food. Reasonably priced. Great service. Nice outside dining area.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFamilyWe had a wonderful time at the restaurant. The food was amazing and service was great. They took great care of us as my family celebrated at couple of birthdays. Would definitely go back again.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Good As AlwaysWe have dined at Not Your Average Joe's on several occasions. They offer interesting, but not outlandish takes on food and provide new ways to experience old favorites. It has become our favorite intermediate price restaurant in our area.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find!I took my kids here for Mother's Day, and we had fabulous service, from a very friendly hostess (who was apologetic for the 5 minute delay from our reservation time), to a great server who gave very good menu suggestions. It wasn't too quiet, my kids were welcome, and it was great food had by all!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodFood is always consistently good and the wait staff is friendly and attentive!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter Than Average Joe'sGreat place to enjoy a diverse menu for large group of people that have very different tastes. From pizza, chicken fingers for kids to steak and seafood entrees for adults, all came out prepared perfectly as ordered. Always enjoy friendly staffers at Joe's and food is good and dependable.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Nice Meal OutHad a very nice lunch here for Mother's Day with a group of 8. We did have to wait a bit for our table as earlier reservations arrived late and caused a domino effect, but the manager was very apologetic and service was prompt once seated. Sirloin Tips were delicious, as were the salads, Turkey BLT sandwich, and Goat Cheese Flat Bread (a special for the day). The calamari was a bit tasteless, but that was the only downfall of all the food. Overall, really enjoyed the meal and will definitely go back for a good meal that won't break the bank.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place!!!We chose NYAJ's for our party of 8 to celebrate Mother's Day dinner. Although they were absolutely swamped, our wait staff pampered us and took such good care of everyone at our table! The food is great and as a person who keeps gluten free, it is such a treat to also have warm bread when everyone else at the table has it (that dip is AWESOME!!!!!), and a good selection of gluten free dinner options.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been here twice nowWe've been here twice now and really like this place. The food is great as well as the service. We'll definitely be back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMVery accomodatingI called ahead to advise them that we would be 45 minutes early for our reservation for 10 people, and they were totally ready for us.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service are alwaysFood and service are always very good with a nice casual atmosphere. It is very noisy though and sometimes hard to hear others at your table (and not hear peripheral conversations).4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Joe's. We have beenLove Joe's. We have been going here for awhile now. Joe's always keeps the menu fresh by rotating favorites during the year and inserting new ideas. Also, the portions are just right. Not too much food but just enough to satisfy.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had good service, goodWe had good service, good food, and everything was reasonably priced.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was very good, especiallyThe food was very good, especially the scallops. Our waitress gave excellent service, she was courteous, attentive, and she answered all our questions about the menu. I loved the $20 bottles of wine - very good wine for the price. The bar was the place to be, very energetic and fun. The restaurant was very crowded, so definitely recommend making reservations.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for wine & dinner outThe reservation made this a slam dunk!Hannah was our server & she made our visit very enjoyable!!!Great food & excellent service...

The service and food was great!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGood restaurant for familyGood restaurant for family dining. We had a large group which included several children and everyone had a variety of food. All were served cheerfully and food arrived promptly. Note of caution, though. Careful of the bread and dipping oil -- it's addictive!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful lunch celebratingHad a wonderful lunch celebrating Easter at NYAJ's.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for kids and adultsWe needed a place that had a couple of requirements, kid friendly, good food, and a table available on Easter. This place hit all of the right notes. The staff was friendly and enjoyed the kids (2 and under 1). They weren't a distraction or a nuisance, but the reason that they have a restaurant like this. The food was well prepared, warm and tasty. While the two year old really just wanted chocolate milk and butter, he was very happy when his own little pizza showed up, freshly made with nice quality ingredients. A fantastic place that we will certainly return to.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMake sure to call ahead, orMake sure to call ahead, or better yet use open table as this place gets packed fast, great food and great prices its a no brainer that folks are going to fill this place up.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMTried Joe's on the recommendationTried Joe's on the recommendation of a friend, who's favorite restaurant BTW is The Palm. He happened upon the Joe's in Kentlands, Gaithersburg, MD by accident. He told me it was very good and that there was one in Leesburg. Since I live not too far from Leesburg, we grabbed a couple neighbors and tried it out. We were not dissappointed. Starting with the bread and dipping oil, entrees, and finally dessert (white chocolate cherry bread pudding), it was awesome. We will definitely be going back and NYAJ's will become the restaurant I will be bringing my out of town guests.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great meal - the flounderHad a great meal - the flounder special was awesome!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband did not like theMy husband did not like the special that night, corned beef, but everything else we had was very good. We will definitely try Joes again.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGood lunchFood was pretty good, service attentive. We had a Grilled chicken sandwich and a Cobb salad which were both prepared as expected.2/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there for lunch andWe were there for lunch and it was a good experience. A nice salad and a grilled chicken sandwich, both came a s expected. Would certainly go back.2/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBook Club and More!This was not my first time to NYAJ because I LOVE the food! We met for book club and enjoyed ourselves. Our server was fun and attentive- but not too pushy. Being in the restaurant industry I know the game..but he got me to purchase a gift card and use it that evening to get my bounce back..which makes no sense for the restaurant itself..the point of selling gift cards during the holidays is to get the guest to come back..not just to sell and use on the same day :).
The overall experience was great. And the food was great. I recommended to the girls that were there- and two have returned since with their own families.11/14/2012 12:00:00 AM
