Lunch with friends and my spouse. We love this place. One pizza, one salad with Mona lisa chicken, one salmon, and one linguine with shrimp. All delicious. Or server was busy but she remembered everything we asked fir like sugar for the iced tea, more bread. The noise level is great. We were in a booth and had no trouble hearing or being heard; at the same time there was enough noise to give the place energy. Can't say enough about the bread. We will all be back

My wife and I recently visited this establishment after a work out at a nearby gym. We found the food very good, the cocktails well-made, and the service excellent. Our server gave us the attention and time that made the evening very nice. We will definitely return.

The wait was minimal for our table and our waitress was lovely . The food was delicious and it came out pretty quickly. I would highly recommend this restaurant to others for lunch and dinner.

My husband is from New England. We discovered the Bethesda location of this restaurant and probably dined there 5 times.

Gaithersburg: Nicer staff, nicer layout. We've now been to Gaithersburg twice and we won't go back to the Bethesda one.

Went with extended family for Dec 26 dinner. Waitress was new but service was fine. Roasted beet salad was great and a large portion - had I known I would have just gotten salad + soup. Enchiladas were good but not stellar. Most everyone liked their meal. Coat hook near table was appreciated.

I’ve been to other NYAJ’s locations and the food was excellent. I ordered the same thing here and it was very poor. The food was lukewarm when it arrived. In addition, you could tell the good had been frozen or reheated. The vegetables were chewy and flavorless. The meats/fish were also without much taste.

We won’t be back to this location.

We come here every couple of months. We are mostly retired from the government and meet just to catch up. Food is always good.

Overall a very nice experience. The music was a bit loud so, even with a small party of 6, it was frequently difficult to hear the conversation all around. I loved my salad, but the person who ordered the fettucine with shrimp and mushrooms said it was too salty. She said that she often finds the food here salty, but I probably haven't eaten here enough to comment. Service and timings were good.

Overall, everything was fine. However, the server was way too persistent and aggressive with the upselling, to the point of annoyance. I got to the point where I wanted to tell her to stop.

I'm not sure if it was done on her own initiative or by management's, but it does make me not want to schedule another team luncheon there, as a result.
