A word from Not Your Average Joe's Warwick
What does creative casual cuisine mean? Exactly what it says. We're creative, because we reject the same-old-same-old in favor of tastes that are interesting and unique. We're casual because while our food may be worth getting dressed up for, we invite you to come as you are. We're all about cuisine in the sense that our chefs apply high standards of culinary art. There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe. At Not Your Average Joe's, we build like we cook: creatively, from scratch, with guests in mind.

    The food and ambiance were very enjoyable. The service did not match up. Our young (under 21) waiter asked me if I wanted a box for my pizza while I was on the first piece and then tried to serve dessert without clearing the dinner dishes. We had to ask him to do this three times.

    I normally love not your average joes. I have been to the ones in Dartmouth and Seekonk and always had a great dinner and good service. This is the second time in warwick and both times I have been disappointed. The food has been fair and the service terrible. I ordered a salad to begin and people who came in at least 10 minutes after us received their salads and I still had no salad. I had to finally ask. My boyfriend needed a drink refill and our waitress walked by at least three times before again we had to ask. Even a manager walked by and looked at his glass and said nothing. I would have asked to speak to a manager but she was too busy socializing with the table behind us. Very disappointing.

    Depends on what you're looking for. Not a place for a quiet, romantic dinner. Cement floors, floor to ceiling glass make it extremely noisy even when half full as it was when we went last week. Food is standard pub type, portions very ample. Burger served to the lady across from us could have easily served two......

    Food is consistent here. Dependable. We were a group of six; 3 adults, 3 kids. Plenty to choose from on the menu. Service this time was on the rough side. Waitress took so long to bring Parmesan cheese for one of the kids, his pasta was gone by the time she came back. Dripping water on the table while delivering drinks, not offering to wipe it up or napkins for that matter. Things we asked for or said thank you for, we received a response "no problem". It became so frequent we started counting the times it was said! 16 times in 45 minutes! (juvenile I know!) A manager usually comes over to the table during a meal but not this time.

    It's easy to fill up on their addictive foccacia bread and olive oil/garlic dip. But don't! Our meals were good, service was prompt and our server was very pleasant. They are very flexible on food substitutions and had a lot of variation in their menu. We were visiting from out of town (staying at the NYLO across the street), so it was very convenient and it was nice to have dining options other than fast food. My only criticism is that the lettuce in my entree salad, which did not have any 'warm' components, was somewhat wilted and room temp. I would have preferred it crisp and cool. But other than that we enjoyed it.

    This was the first time that I made a reservation on-line w/NYAJ. It was easy and worked perfectly. Every request and comment was acknowledged and met. I go to the Dartmouth restaurant usually(closer to home) but love the Warwick site and have taken my parents and granddaughters a few times. Service and food were great.

    We have dined at NYAJ Warwick multiple times are never disappointed. Executive Chef Luciano & General Manager Michele O'Brien and staff make all diners feel special , welcome and well nourished. The almond crusted goat cheese salad with raspberry vinaigrette was described by our dinner guest as tasting like "cheesecake on lettuce"! What could be better than that?

    We were slightly earlier than our 8:15 reservation, but were immediately walked to our table (with about 25 sets of waiting guests' eyes, who watched us walk right in... hee hee... thank you Open Table). Friendly, experienced staff and excellent service... no excruciating delays between drinks, app, main, or dessert. Awesome, industrial atmosphere, which is attractively decorated. Have always loved the menu... :) We were in an out in an hour, on a busy Saturday night. We are Joe's regulars (visit Seekonk location often). Overall, it's a really cool restaurant to dine at.

    The last time we has this particular server (Chris P.) the service was lousy. Not sure if this is the correct company for him brought over the incorrect beer. Then took forever to clear plate in between courses keep saying he be back in a second. Not sure may need to be retrained or freed up for other employment. In know in the future I will not be sitting in his section. Not that I'm expecting anything to come of this last time I responded to this email the "manager" respond state they wanted to send out a gift card for the bad service and have yet to get that aprox. 4 months ago

    On a Saturday night @6pm, was promptly seated, but had to wait 7-8 minutes before the waiter arrived. By then we had decided what to order, but our waiter was trying to make us change to an upgraded dinner. We did not change and we very happy with our choices. When it came time for the check what was delivered was not our check. Needless to say I, although the good was good, I won't rush back there any time soon.

    Our dinner at NYAJs was delicious and all we had looked forward to. Although it was rather noisy near the kitchen area, we were well taken care of by many staff members, maybe too many. Later the same evening we came back with friends to sit outside, where it was comfortably heated, decorated and quieter than our dinner spot. We love the varied menu, changing seasonally and are so glad the restaurant has come closer to home.

    I have been eating at Not Your Average Joe's for many years, at their MA locations. I was very happy when, few years ago, they opened up in Seekonk - not far from me. Then, this past year, they opened this restaurant just a few miles down the road from me - I go there, a few times a month, now - either alone or with someone - love the bar, love the focaccia bread and dip, and every single thing I have ever eaten there!!! Great desserts, as well!

And they are happy to adjust dishes per your requests and needs. I look forward to going back a couple of time a year.

    The atmosphere is fabulous....the outdoor dining was so pretty. Our waiter was very energetic and friendly and informative about dinner choices and options. Service was very slow on a Wednesday later in the evening. 45 minute wait between drinks and appetizers which came with our dinner HATED THAT!!! If you have kids very good kid choices for dinner. Prices were reasonable. Steak tips were ordered....and they were cooked as ordered, and were very good. There signature dessert..peanut butter Oreo thingy...dark chocolate chips are to big and hard as rocks ruined the dessert (for me) - the raspberry sorbet was excellent served with fresh fruit ....The question is would I go back to this restaurant? probably, but not anytime soon.....

    I have been to this particular restaurant several times now. The food is good, however, I order the same meal almost every time I come to this particular location. And unfortunately it is a little different every time. Last night was very good, however, it was not very warm. It is the tuscan grilled chicken melted fresh mozzarella with marinated tomatoes, grilled chicken, basil aioli and arugula, on ciabatta, with organic greens. Last night the chicken was barely warm. I will go back but next time, I may try something different.

    NYAJ's is currently one of my favorite restaurants! The menu is interesting and varied with something for everyone - and I am a rather picky eater. The cocktails are creative and very tasty and I just LOVE the fresh bread and flavorful oil. The wait staff at the Warwick location is consistently friendly, courteous, and attentive. During my last two visits I enjoyed the outdoor dining and, while the view of the mall is not ideal, the eating area has a very nice atmosphere! Finally, I like the option of being able to make reservations. Happy 20th Anniversary to Joe's! :)

    Was not impressed with the food. Heard so much about meatloaf dinner and was overly disappointed with it. Pizza not great. Special lemonades were warm when brought to table. Bread and dipping sauce were excellent. Service was good. Most likely will not go back again. Extremely disappointed after all the hype about how delicious food was.
