Always a great meal with many choices and even good for gluten intolerant patrons.
Service is always very friendly and even a special birthday celebration at the end.
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.
We enjoyed this dining experience very much. The food was delicious and the staff was wonderful.
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!
Food is consistently delicious. Highly recommended
I enjoy JNA I try going every month or every other month
We were celebrating our patents 67th anniversary... the food was delicious and the staff was very friendly and accommodating . We even got a tour of the kitchen!
GOING AGAIN! Love the atmosphere and the waiters were very professional and friendly. The food was absolutely amazing and tasty! Great menu selections and the best part, was when the Chef came out to introduce himself . Awesome guy by the way lol
Very tasteful and accommodating for people's diet restrictions. They accommodated my vegan diet.
Great value - 4 courses for $30. and about 4 choices within each category.
We liked everything that we had. Not rushed and fun to talk to our server who is just new to the hospitality business. Had my leftover Hawaiian rolls for breakfast and still tasty the next day.
The food here was excellent. The atmosphere was also great. Overall this was a great experience that I would recommend to both family and friends.
Our visit was so fun. It was a pleasure seeing students learning the techniques of serving and cooking for future clients . The students are learning the fundamentals. Preparation, serving,
greeting customers. The atmosphere of the dining room is 1970's. Mostly original everything. However I liked it because it brought me back to my younger years. I remember all of it.
JNA never disappoints - four course meal, BYOB, for a great price. Plus you are served by students and get to interact with them. You might even get a tour of the kitchen. Chef Joe does a great job, welcoming, serving, whatever needs to be done.
Once again we enjoyed a superb meal at JNA. My dining companion and I love the seasonal themed menu with its array of choices in 4 courses. The flavors that the chefs prepared in the various Mediterranean dishes were outstanding. The portions are just right sized and the courses were served in a timely fashion so not to come out before we finished the previous course. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. We also love that it is a byob. We look forward to checking out the next season's menu.
At the price of $30 for the spring menu, you get four courses with about four choices per course to choose what appeals to you. We found something we liked for the first three courses and they were very good, especially the entrees. However, dessert left something to be desired that night. I would definitely return even with the lacking desserts. We each chose something different and none of us were satisfied. Maybe we will get a good pastry student next time.
This was a four course meal that was well priced. The menu was limited but varried, the food was OK, but the descriptions of the food sounded more exciting than the taste of the food - which were lacking in seasonings and spices.
Always a great 4 course meal prepared by students with student servers. The price and BYOB make for a nice time.
Looking forward to going back for the spring menu. All the food and choices were excellent.
Everything was great and we got to meet the students. Awesome!
The menu options were good, the pace of the meal was excellent. They were accommodating of our needs and the service was good.
Wonderful food and service!
Great meal. Excellent for a birthday celebration.
Nice atmosphere. Music level very nice for conversation.
There was only one waitress. When the restaurant got more crowded, she could not be as attentive.
We always enjoy our meal atJNA. The Valentines Day dessert special was made table side. Great idea guys. Kindly keep the portion size the way it was. See u soon Mr&Mrs. Forbes
We weren't sure what to expect, but enjoyed the night - average food and service. They should really consider updating the decor - we kept saying it reminded us of an after-funeral luncheon VFW hall. Would have loved to have known it was BYO beforehand!
The food was excellent, the staff was very attentive. We were out with friends and just had a very enjoyable evening. We are definitely going again. The menu options were great and staff made good recommendations. The chefs came out to visit and we enjoyed the conversation about JNA and the menu. Thanks for a great evening everyone!
We got there late, and had to leave early - embarrassing, but you were all over it! The only food that wasn't great was the escargots - they were not imbued with the flavors and there was a funny aftertaste.
I love coming here. The food and the service is great. No nasty over the top attitudes from staff.
The wine list was really great, the food was plated wonderfully. We have been going to JNA two or three times a year and have never had a bad meal . The students really try to make everything nice. The atmosphere is a little 1970s. It does not matter it adds to the enjoyment of the place.
The food is great. Give it a try.
Great service and food options. Our service by Melissa was fabulous
Most disappointing. Food was average and service was even worse.
This may be a culinary arts school but the excellent Chefs mentoring the students makes it a 5 Star Michelin experience.
We visited here on a Friday evening. Found it to be a great dining experience. The menu is limited, but very interesting choices. Dinner was a fixed price of $30, a great value. Every course was excellent, food was all very well prepared and well seasoned. Our wait staff was exceptional and the background music was perfect and allowed conversations to be had without shouting like in many establishments. We'll certainly return when in the area.
The waitress was emotional and crying. Dont know what happened.
JNA is a culinary school. A large lobby area is turned into a seating area with about 8 tables. The food is prepared by students under a chef's supervision. We have been there over a dozen times. We follow the menu changes - French, Italian, Mediterranean, American, etc. We have never been disappointed. Keep in mind that students are training to wait on tables, open wine bottles, etc. so some are more experienced than others. Be patient. You get to talk to students and can request a kitchen visit. The four-course meal is a bargain. Be sure to leave a nice tip for the student fund.
This is a teaching experience for the kitchen and the floor staff, so my observations are meant not to criticize, but to help the staff with their education.
The servers were very polite. However, there is a certain patter that a good server has to know and maintain, and our server needed more practice on his. He was very prompt with our food and drinks, and he got our order 100% right.
The was mostly delicious. There was one item that didn't really knock me out, but that may have just been my taste. Everything was very well prepared and presented. Portions were perfect, but the sheer amount of food that comes with the prix fixed still left me stuffed. Not complaining about that.
We had the house wine. It was not extravagant, but it was quite tasty with the food we were served.
The owners took excellent care of us. It is clear that they expect the best for both their students and for their guests. It is gratifying, as a guest, to help the students improve their skills in the restaurant world, and to see the owners' pride when the guests leave happy.
I shall definitely return!
