    We were not served bread like the other tables. Also, the server kept asking us about which salad we wanted in a way that made us think it was included in the meal but it was actually an extra charge. Asking us ceasar or chef’s instead of “ would you like an extra salad on the side” is quite deceptive. Also not sure why we did not get any bread when all the other tables around us got it even before they were served drinks.

    Such a disappointing experience. Service super slow and food was left on the pass for ages before eventually being brought to our table. Subsequently the food was cold and not very tasty. My daughter found a hair in her wrap. We waited so long for the check, and then to have someone process our payment, that we took our check to the front desk. They were unable to take payment and so we spent more time waiting for our server to arrive to take our credit card.

    Open Table wrote to me stating that I was a “no show”. However I checked in and told the hostess that I had a reservation. The food and service are always great! However the entrance to the restaurant upon opening the door is always dark and in need of repair.

    We were sitting at the first table to the left of the post area when you first come in. It was just a bit dark when we were sitting in those hard-to-reach and menus. Need more lighting in parts of the restaurant.

    Dined with grandchildren and their parents. Exceeded my (not all that high) expectations. Pulled pork sandwich was good (a little hard to eat on the squishy potato roll). Cauliflower appetizer and veggie wrap were good too.

    NYAJ honored a request I made online for outdoor seating. I especially love how this establishment asks about food allergies upon greeting the table. I have kids with allergies and this puts us at ease. Our waitress went above and beyond serving us even bringing us a small sample of a new beer on tap. The food was great and served in a reasonable amount of time. We will be back again.

    How does a place like this stay in business? Just below average food and portion sizes seemed way off on some of the dishes. Gotta do a much better job with all the competition out there.

    Arrived to an almost empty restaurant on a Sunday night. While we were seated quickly, we sat for over 15 minutes and still were not approached by a waiter. Growing inpatient we just got up and left. Haven't been to NYAJ's in Ardmore since it opened years ago, and I must say that is feels dirty and worn out. Seems there has been little to no improvement in the aesthetics since it first opened, and the quality of the customer experience has definitely gone down. We will not be back.

    Food is very good and nicely presented for a huge restaurant. On our first visit we had a wonderful server ,very informative and attentive. On this visit we has a surly lady serve us , the food was prompt and delicious, our server was a bit abrupt and seemed harrased, it was busy, but all the same it is not cheap, few nice words might have helped this review
