Fine consistently good food, at a very reasonable price. Service sometimes spotty as staff turnover seems high. We still go routinely because of the combo of food and value.

Another great meal at Not Your Average Joe’s ... I had the mustard chicken - juicy and delish. my daughter had the turkey avocado sandwich with sweet potato fries - yum. Her friend had the shrimp tacos - ate every bite. Dessert was Oreo cheesecake which was big enough to split among the 3 of us. Our server was fantastic.

We got their early for our reservation and ended up sitting at the bar because we were super hungry but still as nice! Steak frites were really yummy! The fries were not hot but they fixed that super quickly and the blackberry pomegranate margarita was really good! Overall I’d definitely be back.

My only complaint is the app. I needed help with it. It skips screens before you have a chance to select.

Seating arrangement is horrible, made a reservation days before and had us waiting for 30 min, made a reservation for a table not a high chair where im sitting a mile away from the person in front of me, take reservations more seriously

Why do you take reservations if you aren’t able to seat people at the time of their reservation? We waited 30 minutes past our reservation time to be seated.

Food order came out a bit wonky but was rectified pretty quickly. Cocktails always seem to be of poor quality unless you order your own rather than off the menu. But the service was good, food options and cleanliness seemed great!

As someone that loves with Celiac disease, it’s extremely important to find a restaurant, and staff that understands that safety of the food and the cooking areas. Kashmere was our waitress and one of the first things she asked was if there were any food allergies. She was super helpful, caring and attentive. This was our first time here and we will definitely be back!!

My experience was wonderful as usual! The only thing that wasn’t amazing was their drinks both alcoholic and non-alcoholic...other than that I’ll continue to dine here I love this place!

A great meal at NYAJ. The food was delicious and portions were ample. We had Ali as a server. He was friendly and attentive. Service was quick and we never wanted for anything. Great job.

Food was really good, service was a bit show but understandable with only two servers in at the time. Appetizers were excellent and very filling. The down side was that toward the were rushed when were just sitting at our table talking.

The free bread is absolutely delicious with a light crumb - no idea what kind it is! Our waiter was attentive and did not forget anything. My burger was a bit darker than medium, but it was delicious!

Our lunch took about .30 minutes to come out. Once delivered, the chicken and mashed potatoes were cold, the salad had very little lettuce and the pasta dish was swimming in oil. The only part of the meal that was great were the oil with grated cheese and the bread. This is the third time my meal was a mess. Doubt if I’ll return. The manager apologized but we left hungry.

Another great meal at Joe’s. I had the French Dip sandwich from the special menu. The beef was perfectly cooked and mouth watering tender, and the roll was so fresh and tasty. My husband had one of their salads which he always loves. Our server did a great job.

the manager was most kind talking to us after showing our disappointment that they did not have the much touted prime ribs for dinner, how they ran out is beyond imagination.
