Good meal. Service was not on par for NYAJ's. Disappointed that when the server knew it was my wife's birthday they didn't offer a small desert for her so we could sing happy birthday. He wanted us to BUY deserts...:(

Had the Wedge salad with salmon - good, not great. My wife had a salad with steak on the side. The steak was very chewy and needed some spice. Server was great and my drink was excellent, not measured. Cool decor and seemed like a fun place for locals.

We had a nice meal with excellent service from Marcus.

The only issue was that having made a reservation, there was still a 20 minute wait for a table.

Went there on Valentine's Day so they were busy. I had reservations & were seated pretty close to schedule. Two guest were late but we were seated at our table anyway & could order. Had to switch tables after being served drinks & bread. Our waitress was very accommodating as we went in a different section. Each of us received a little snack gift all wrapped up & had red ribbon. Such a nice touch for such a busy evening. Could see the effort stuff made on Valentine's Day. Drinks & food very good.

Attempted to give this restaraunt a second chance due to a bad 1st experience at a different location. 0/2

We go to NYAJ a lot. We LOVE the Caribbean Buffalo Chicken Tenders so my husband decided to get the buffalo chicken pizza... But it was not good. They were kind enough to take it off our bill. We've had several good experiences here and a few not-so-good ones. Service is sometimes very slow with a lot of mix ups, but we still keep going back because we enjoy most of the food.

Despite reservations, had to wait 15 minutes at 6pm for our table. Took 30 minutes from ordering dinner to getting our food -- and the Valentine cocktail wasn't served until after dinner (so we weren't charged--but still...!!) Lovely server, but took too long for our food and table
