A word from Not Your Average Joe's Westborough
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.Continued

  • "Our party of seven had a great time. The wait staff was very friendly helping with suggestions. She knew just when we need things."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "I made a reservation so that I could use my birthday coupon from Joe's. We arrived a little early and the hostess was just about to put our 'reserved' sign and menus on our table. We all had a good laugh about that. The food was good, the dessert is always delicious but the highlight of the evening was one of their special summer cocktails which was out of this world!"

  • "Just want good food and a beer. Most of the menu is a bit pretentious."

  • "My wife and I have yet to find a meal we did not like. Quality ingredients, wonderful pairings of food and flavor, and very good service. Our rosemary-skewered scallops were excellent. The bread and oil with chili flakes and cheese NYAJ's serves at the beginning of every meal is excellent: better than a lot of Italian restaurants. At lunch (or any time, really), NYAJ's salads are excellent. My wife and I have been there several times and will return."

  • "Food is great and the kids love it. My kids favorite thing us the bread with seasoned dipping oil. We also love with the bottomless homemade flavored lemonade and Arnold Palmer. We have a great experience every time we go. Also, be sure to sign up for the birthday club. Each year I get a free entree of my choice and a free dessert!"

  • "We had a great time having a date night! My food was good, burger cooked just how I like it. The waitress was FABULOUS! She did an awesome job making suggestions throughout our meal. One thing that was not so good was my husband's mustard chicken. He did not like the flavor of the mustard. Also, based on the description in the menu both he and I expected it to look different. Other than that the Molten Lava cake was amazing! Have never had that before and was surprised at how yummy it tasted. Over all it was a good night!"

  • "If it wasn't for the fire alarms going off a few time, we would have had a great time! Having to leave the building during your dinner wasn't ideal."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "I went with two friends- we enjoyed our meals, but waited longer than expected from the ordering time to the delivery of our food. It was a busy Friday night, so I can understand to some degree, but this was a bit on the too long side."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Always has unique food items on the menu. The bread is fantastic. Always a good experience."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I appreciate that if the waitperson is advised of gluten sensitivity, a gluten-free bread and separate olive oil dip is provided for the gluten sensitive person(s) to enjoy instead of watching everyone else eat the fresh bread at the table. Would like to see a few more gluten-free pasta options."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I think this is our fourth visit. We have generally enjoyed ourselves and our overall rating I think would be 4 starts. However, my entrée of scollops on rosemary skewers was way overpriced. Considering the $24.00 price, the portion was small. It is a poor value. The preparation was good but not outstanding. So far we like it, but I am going to stick to $15 entrées and be a bit more cautions what I order. This was a $16 and at most an $18 entrée. Also a $15 Dad gift card was advertised but there was no sign of it."

  • "I can always count on NYAJ's to deliver a good experience. Food is consistent (and prepared to order) and the service is always friendly and accommodating."

  • "On a recent visit for a free dinner and desert for a birthday. The food and service was fantastic."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Waitress was a ditz- too busy chatting with customers around us. When we arrived and checked in, the host said we would be the next table seated- it was more like 3rd or 4th. Am not really sure why they do reservations - it's more like a call ahead kind of thing. Food was ok. service was ok. it was all ok."

  • "I took my kids here to celebrate my birthday on a Thursday evening. We've dined here several times and always have a good meal, with friendly service. There is something for everyone on the eclectic menu. If it's a nice night, the outdoor seating adds a nice touch. Of course, the best part was the free entree and free dessert I got for my birthday! Just sign up online for this special perk. "

  • "We went here for lunch after my daughter's graduation. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was great! My wife loved the full-page gluten-free menu; plenty of options for her. Our only complaint was that the regular buns for our burgers fell apart - but the gluten-free one didn't!"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I always have a great meal and the service is always wonderful. Sometimes the portions are smaller than I would like, but the taste of the food makes up for that. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Everything was excellent. The only thing that I wasn't too happy about was the wait time. We made reservations so we wouldn't have to wait too long as we were there with 2 3 year old boys :) we still had to wait over a 1/2 hour. Otherwise food and service was great. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Just an average restaurant, but with a menu like an upscale chain restaurant ($$$). Tab for 4 people was in excess of $160. (w/2 drinks each) and my wife only had a hamburger. I know of many better restaurants where the cost would be 30-40% cheaper, and with a better atmosphere. Sorry, can't recommend this place to anyone."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "The food was great. The ambiance was fantastic. However the only fail I. The day was the non follow through for her birthday request on the reservation. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We are regular diners @NYAJ's & are really big fans if the eclectic menu! Only disappointing component this time was the Caesar salad, which is normally excellent, however it was mostly the whitish centers of the romaine lettuce, not the tender, deep green parts. Other than that though, our meals were just fabulous! We had a great server too, Jacinth! She did a wonderful job. Very knowledgable about the menu & just the right amount of friendliness. Love Joe's!"
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "We are frequent customers at NYAJ in Westborough, both before having a child, and now that we have a toddler. The food is always delicious, and the staff are friendly. They are great about getting food out quickly, especially when there is a hungry kid at the table. It can get busy at times, but the staff keeps things moving. We love it here, and often bring family when they visit from out of town. A great place for when you want a "nicer" casual dinner or lunch. I'd give it 4.5 stars if that was a choice ( nobody's perfect)"

  • "We came to the restaurant for a friend's birthday at her choosing and had a wonderful time as the menu accommodate our parties varied needs and the server was extremely helpful and friendly. I have been to this location before for work functions and it has always been a pleasant experience. Thanks for your continued service!"

  • "Had lunch on Easter, the restaurant was not crowded, our waitress was excellent. Our entrees were good, and the cocktails (Moscow Mules and a Mojito) were delicious. When you go to a restaurant that offers a huge variety in types of dishes, it's tough to be the best at those dishes compared, to say, a strictly Greek or Italian restaurant for those types of entrees, so considering this, the restaurant did a good job at putting together a special of the day (which one of us had). The other entree ordered (a turkey kabob with orzo) was good as well. The bread they serve is delicious."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Made advance reservation, when arrived no tables available. Had to wait for available seating, making the purpose of having a reservation unclear. Service was very good, drinks rather expensive for restaurant of this type. Food well prepared but overall fair."

  • "Their name says it all, Not Your Average Joe's. and it is definitely not/ The food is always prepared to your request and they go out of their way to insure you get what you want. The menu has monthly specials and offers a wide variety of well prepared, healthy options. Have eaten at several and you can always count on consistency of preparation and presentation from restaurant to restaurant. Stop by, you'll be glad you did."
