Loved it!! Me and my guests will be returning soon!!
All was good! However , the hostess offered to move us to a less windy table outside. She said she would move us. She never returned and another hostesssested a couple there!
Our server was amazing!
Wait staff and food were excellent.
I never write restaurant reviews but two bad experiences prompted it. This was the second time dining here recently. I had fish and chips and it arrived as a pile of drippy oil and way more batter than fish. My companion had chicken piccata and it was so overpowering with lemon. Three weeks ago when I dined here, the Buffalo chicken pizza was a pile of runny blue cheese, couldn’t pick up a piece and the steak rolls were very greasy. Very disappointed and will not be dining here again.
Great menu with gluten free options available. Food is consistently good.
Wow, what an absolute SH*T show! I don’t think I’ve had a worse dining experience in my entire life… first of all, we had to sit and wait for 10 minutes while they ran around trying to find someone to bus/wipe down our table (even after someone was asked to do it TWICE) then we are sat down a and given literal dirty dishes (pictures attached) with some black film on them 😐 sooo okay fine we just won’t use them… waitress comes over gives us menus and takes our drink orders and then instead of asking for the menus back she just kind of gestures at them, so we hand them to her. Then I try to order a drink which she tells me they do not have (no “im sorry can I get you something else” no “here’s what we have that’s similar” just “We don’t have that” with a blank expression.) only for me to see another waiter carrying that EXACT drink out to someone! (I confirmed it was the same drink so I’m not just speculating here) she then disappears for 30 minutes after I asked for bread and is gone for so long that I actually had to ask another waiter working there only for someone completely different to come out 10 minutes later and say they don’t have bread - and for anyone who has been to NYAJ you know they make the bread in-house and they ALWAYS serve it with the drinks/when you sit down so I find it very hard to believe they didn’t have it… after the drink debacle it seems even less likely. Then the food finally comes out and it was fine despite the fact our waitress is still MIA (they have runners so not once did she bring us food, would just occasionally stroll by and unenthusiastically ask if we needed anything) and then when we ordered dessert she just left the plates on the table instead of offering to clear them and disappeared again… we had to eat with the plates on the table and this is after waiting another 5 minutes to get fresh utensils. All of this would’ve been fine had our waitress been friendly or kind - she was a complete dud and uninterested. Sad. :(
Perfect in every way
Had dinner outside. Service was very good, food was just so-so. But margaritas were fabulous!
All three of us were pleased with our entrees. They were well prepared and came to the table quickly.
Always have a good food and good times NYEJ!
Really enjoyed the almond crusted salmon and my buddy had a vegan penne dish with Impossible burger meat sauce. Both high quality. Drinks were great. Service excellent.
Service was awful. Pasta was full of red pepper and was not able to eat. Was still charged for it and did not have options to change cause kitchen had closed.
Table where I was seated was greasy and bread plate given to me was dirty. Told waitress and she corrected both. Also several dirty, used napkins lying under the table. Asked for water with lemon, got water, no lemon. I would've liked a straw as it seemed that cold drinks like water and soda automatically came with a straw, but I didn't get one. Ordered a cheeseburger cooked medium...got a cheeseburger that was well done on one half and bloody rare on the other half. Waitress took it back and the kitchen recooked it. Young girl cleaning tables had long hair hanging over the tables because it was not secured or tied back. It was not a good dining experience and it was annoying to keep having to flag down the waitress or someone to remedy what should've been done correctly in the first place.
Food was not great. Service and Ambience were great.
Service was excellent and food was amazing. Whenever we are at Suburban Square this is are go to restaurant. Nice touch with the bread and garlic dip.
We always enjoy dining at Not Your Average Joe's and had hoped to eat up on the roof because it's lovely up there, but yesterday was much too hot and we were graciously seated inside instead. It's a little noisy for us inside. But the service and food was good, as they usually are.
My first time there and had a great time! I will be back again
Food was delicious. I had clam chowder and ahi tuna wontons. My parents had a burger and the lobster roll and they ate every bite which usually doesn’t happen:)
Our waitress provided excellent service and the food was delicious. One serious issue occurred after I paid the bill and went out side. We had 10 minutes to wait for an appointment at the Apple store, so my wife and decided to take a seat outside NYAJ. A young male came running out and yelled at us that we could not sit there because they need these seats for future customers. There were 40 open seats right on the one side. Very rude even after I told him we just had lunch and spent $50.
Very friendly and accommodating staff. Love how allergy conscious they are! My salmon was a little unflavored but cooked nicely as ordered. Overall everything was very good.
Great service, great food…the food came out in a very timely manner food was fresh, hot and delicious couldn’t ask for anything better!!
Food was very bland and the table was very sticky.
We had the most fun credible experience m. Our server was so kind and attentive! The food was delicious! We will definitely be back
Took my brother out for his birthday. As always, the food was good, staff were friendly, and I love the area. You can do some shopping before or after your meal.
Did not mention bday celebration despite being informed
Small portion size
We were seated at the bar
Always enjoy the patio seating
We went for my husband's birthday and brought my grandson. It was very enjoyable. We felt well cared for as the hostess, other waiters and waitresses, etc. backed each other up.
The wait was long. My children’s food was cold and had to be sent back. My food was nasty and poorly prepared. I got the chicken and shrimp rice bowl. I didn’t even send it back, I just didn’t eat it. I just ate the house bread and my sweet potato fries.
We had a great dinner! Our server, Matt, was awesome. Good info and good recommendations. Everything was really delicious!
I'm tired of writing reviews for the same restaurants
Went there to celebrate our son’s 22nd birthday. Made reservations for 8 of us and was seated immediately. Ordered non-al drinks, 5 apps to share among us and 8 entrees, the total price was quite reasonable. Food was very good and enjoyed by all. Our waitress Tina was excellent and extremely attentive to us. Would definitely return
I don’t want to shut the place down but we were hoping the rats left. They gave us a gift card to make up for it. Many months later, rodents remain. I know they aren’t the only place with this issue, but I don’t think I can return this time.
Food was not good, my wife got sick. Service was mediocre at best. Nice ambiance, but much more potential than what is in place now.
It was very nice. Sat outside and the area is b autiful. It was as a beautiful night!
Server was wonderful. Very attentive and helpful. The ambiance was beautiful and the noise level was very moderate to quiet. Definitely loved this place.
