I have been here before and love the quarterly change of menus. I have tried things here that I may not have tried elsewhere. The food in usually great as it was this last time. The service was attentive and the value unsurpassed.

Always great four-course meal and interesting to meet new students getting experience. Menu changes every few months. Plus BYOB. We go often.

great service, food well prepared though two entrees had to go back for warming-
they need better cushions on the chairs

Not what I expected. Served too quickly. Food not hot when served. Ambiance too stark. My fish was dry, only warm, and fishy tasting. I did not eat my meal, and that seemed of no concern to anyone. My husband’s chicken was dry and no cheese could be found.....

Great value. Elsewhere the same meal would cost twice what it does here. The students that work here are fun and enthusiastic.

I have been to JNA numerous times and have wholeheartedly recommended it to dozens of people. The cuisine and value are second to none. In fact I purchase 3 or 4 Groupons whenever they are available.

This is a great restaurant and so fun to be a part of the students' learning experiences as chefs and wait staff. The menu is varied and the four courses were wonderful! I will definitely be going back. And we went on opening night!
