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!

The server was very attentive and paid particular attention to some dietary issues I have. He went above and beyond what most servers do.

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.

I’ve have dined here many times and the food is consistent, the service always good and the wait time is usually quick. The email discounts always help with the value.

Our sever Ali was excellent. Enjoyed the squash flatbread and ahi tuna poke bowl. DH loved his pasta with chicken and broccoli. Busy on a Friday night but recieved prompt service. Would recommend.

The music was way too loud for a restaurant
If you were a dance hall it would have been ok
But if I cannot talk to other people at my table because I cannot hear them the music is too loud

Decent food, great location, decent service— I think we were in the transition between lunch and dinner and got forgotten for about 40 minutes, but will probably be back.

The food was excellent. Service was great. Spent three hours catching up with friends I haven't seen in many years, and we were not rushed out, for which we were very grateful.

Nice spot for a quick meal. It was noisier than I'd like, attributable to the hard surfaces. I was disappointed to be seated at a hightop when I requested a table in my reservation. Food was terrific and our server really friendly.

My friend and I were greeted immediately. We had a super-friendly server who tended to all of our needs. Your coffee is superb and we each had a burger, which were very tasty. We didn't feel rushed in any way, shape or form, even though the restaurant was crowded (lunchtime on a Saturday). I will definitely be back in the near future. Thank you for a very nice lunch experience!
