    This location’s management decided to close early on the day of our reservation—no announcement. It’s understandable that this is more common with staffing concerns and all. The problem is that we had a reservation in advance of the early close date. No one thought to contact customers with a reservation? We drove all the way there just for a sign on the door and an apology. Frustrating. Preventable. Inconsiderate.

    The food was great, and the service was very attentive, but we felt rushed. We wanted to hang out and catch up, but the server obviously wanted us to leave even though it wasn’t crowded and no one was waiting for our table.

    I went with my son & my husband ~ we each got an appetizer, my son got the steak and cheese egg rolls, my husband and I both got soups. They have quite a generous portion for a cup, if you’re hungry ~ just have the cup and the bread they serve before your entree you will be satisfied. For dinner I got the penne alla vodka with the mini meatballs ~ it has a kick to it so be mindful of that! It was delicious, my husband got their November special Turkey dinner and he was so pleased, he loved their stuffing, too! My son got their cheeseburger, he’s a teenager and typically eats burgers so I mean cheeseburgers are cheeseburgers lol. We got right in, got a really nice corner seat at a booth. It was really a great experience.

    Kayla served us with friendliness and kindness. This member of your wait staff attended to us, served us everything we needed and brought our food while hot. We received smiles with every interaction and only want to return to your restaurant with this staff member waiting on us from now on. the pizzas, the flatbreads, an appetizer bread tasted delicious, and just so we needed as we came in hungry.

    Our first waiter took our order in a timely manner, and order and staff delivered with accuracy It confused us as a different person brought all the items each time-One person brought water, one person brought bread ,one person brought drinks, one person brought the meal-hence we wondered which person to tip? We found our salads overpriced for the amount of lettuce and lack of protein included on the plate. We found all three meals served hot and flavorful, which we deem important. When two of us went to the restrooms we both observed uncleanliness, empty soap dispensers and broken locks on the doors. In both men and women’s rooms paper towels overflowed from the trash bins all over the floor and needed attention. Once we finish dining, we looked for original waiter to pay the bill. After seven minutes of searching he dropped off our check onto the table. we waited to pay, and we waited and we waited. We decided to go back to the hostess desk to pay our bill as we found no sign of our waiter again. once she began to process our bill he came around the corner and completed the transaction.

    I have been eating @ Joe's for many, many years and not been disapointed until yesterday My Husband and I ate outside... The table were dirty and when the Server cleaned he used a dry cloth and certainly didn't sanatise. The greens in our salads were wilted and definetly not fresh.

    Always love NYAJ, but would love to see a menu revamp for appetizers especially. Also, the pasta for the chicken parm needs to be drained better, as the plate was full of water and as a result the chicken was soggy. Other than these minor complaints, I love this restaurant and can't wait for my next visit!

    We have never had a bad meal at NYAJ's. The bread and oil dip is delicious. We enjoyed the dumplings -- they were a repeat order. Food is always well prepared and ample. Kudos to the staff ... the entire staff worked as a team serving everyone. Our waitress was very good. Nice to have the Mustard Chicken ... always a good choice.

    appetizers were quite good. Service was very good. Msin course was Ok, but not as good as i have had in the past. my tortilla soup was best patt of my meal. wife and I had the meatloaf , was dry and quite salty. Way to salty. dad had jambalaya, said it was good but not great. mother had a salad and a chicken dish that she said was good. Dessert was excellent..

    Birthday Dinner with family for my daughter. Our waitress was wonderful despite how rude my aunt can be and my uncle isn’t the best tipper. Whomever she was, I can’t remember her name, apologize for me and let her know my husband and I appreciate all she did for us and making friends with my daughter.

    Our party of four came to the Burlington NYAJ's for a mid-afternoon meal. We were seated inside after deciding the sun on the patio was too much. But the restaurant was not crowded and very pleasant. My husband and I ordered the chef's Jambalaya, which we had ordered many times at other sites. This rendition was swimming in oil with a scoop of very dry rice in the middle. Neither one of us could enjoy it, eating as much as possible while avoiding the pool of grease. When our server came to clear, we wanted to give some feedback (we were not trying to avoid paying the bill or her tip) regarding the dish. It was clear she could not have been less interested, despite our assurances that we did not hold her responsible. Interestingly, she had never come to our table to check or ask "How is everything?" Usually someone does that. She came with the check and later left, waving to us across the room. We had to ask another server if we could have more water. All in all, the experience was overpriced ($65 - that includes a $10 tip - for one beer and two Jambalayas) without a modicum of hospitality after we were reseated inside.
