We went for brunch. The food was fine, tasted fresh, nothing to knock your socks off though. The service was great. We were just disappointed because we were expecting more than three options for brunch. The website made it seem like there should’ve been more going on for brunch. Maybe lunch or dinner is better. Focaccia is really yummy!

My only complaint is about food allergy. You guys do such a truly great job, but it’s frustrating that you’re fryer is not safe for top 8 allergens. It’s sad every time I forget this and hen I’m told my son can’t eat french fries. If you are going to be a top recommendation from Allergy Eats, IMHO, that need to change! Please make your fryers safe or set up an extra safe fryer.

I had never been to NYAJ'S before but when I got there it reminded me of an "Iron Hill Brewery" type of restaurant. I reserved for a party of 10, so the wait to be seated took a little while. The noise level was pretty loud, but it was a Friday evening, so it was to be expected. The server was nice and he recommended the specials that were not on the menu and offered what his favorite dishes were. The prices were standard, not ridiculously high but not "diner fare low" either. Despite the high noise level and the wait, I would go again and recommend the place to others.

Server constantly forgot to bring things, both gluten free and regular roles really stale, my gf chicken picatta worst I have ever had, and I have eaten there a lot. It was a Friday night, but as I was paying for it, no excuse for poor food and service.

Unique space (use to be the old Suburban theater) with a diverse and tasty food and drink menu. They pride themselves for having a large gluten-free menu and being able to accommodate any food allergies or sensitivities. Nice happy hour menu available at the bar area. Great for family or friends night out.

We were seated next to a very loud table but we didn't mind. They were just having fun and the place was packed so it was already pretty loud. Overall I enjoyed myself very much and so did my mother and sister. Looked gorgeous, very friendly and the food was delish! Thanks a lot.

Our waitress was excellent, the food was good. We have frequently dined here and been pleased. I was stunned when we were chatting after finishing our meal and we were asked if we would make the table available for other patrons. We just spent in excess of $200 and wanted to chill for a bit before we left. There were other tables open around us. This will keep our group from dining there again.
