NYAJ, again, meets all expectations for excellent food and service. We were seated at our reservation time and didn't have to wait. Our server, Desiree, took great care of us and our meals were excellent. Happy to continue to dine here!

Our Open Table reservation was a lifesaver! On a busy Friday night we were immediately seated. (LOVE Open Table)
The decor is current, trendy, industrial vibe with exposed ductwork and black ceilings. That being said, as usual with this style it is noisy. Probably ok in the bar but we found it difficult to converse in the dining area because of the noise.
The food is yummy! Great menu options. Wine/cocktail choices are nice but overpriced. The "Peanut Butter Thing" dessert is to die for! (share it-it is large)
Will definitely go back again. All in all a great spot!

First time eating at Not Your Average Joe's, and it was a very pleasurable experience. Had a very nice laidback waiter who was informative and attentive without being pushy. We were impressed with the wide selection of items on the menu with quite a few options for those watching their calorie intake like us. We had lettuce wraps as an appetizer that were very good. A little messy but tasted very good. Not as good as PF Chang's lettuce wraps but a fraction of the calories. My wife had a vegetarian spaghetti squash bolognese that was very good, and extremely low on calories. I had steak tips with garlic spinach, mashed potatoes, and pickled red onions. Tasted fantastic. We didn't drink on this evening, but looks like they had a lot of good cocktail choices too. We sat at high top table, and had reservations through Open Table and glad we did. Wait time was over 45 minutes for others on a Saturday night. Lighting was dimmed nicely, and presentation of meals was a nice touch. The bread and oil brought to the table was also extremely good. Looking forward to eating here more often in the future.

Food was good but the buffet wasn't kept full with options so we didn't get to have really an all you can eat buffet, and didn't get to try things we wanted because it was not replenished.

Great space for friends to gather. Excellent, friendly service. Good food....but skip the fork & knife burger. The burger is the size of a munchkin.

I ordered an Impossible burger for the first time. It was delicious! Though I ordered it without bacon, there s bacon on my burger. Our server was very apologetic. While waiting for my new meal, he brought me a cup of squash apple soup, which was very good.

I loved it, our waitress was fantastic and helpful. She immediately asked about food allergies, and although there were none, it was very nice to know that the restaurant cares about its customers to ask rather than assume they will tell. To me it showed that they have genuine care for their customers. The food was amazing and in all of my times there, I have never had a bad experience. 10/10 would recommend and I will definitely go back.

I would recommend the restaurant but, I would never recommend OpenTable booking to anyone. OpenTable completely messed up the reservation as in never placed the reservation with the restaurant!!!!! Do not send me your emails/advertising!

We wanted to try the Sunday buffet as we have been to NYAJ's many times. The service was excellent. The food was okay; the "breakfast offerings" were better than the" lunch offerings". The buffet area was tight and they kept running out of plates. Glad we tried it but will not return for brunch again.

I've been to nyaj's many times for dinner and never been disappointed. This time I figured I would try the Sunday brunch and it was equally amazing.

I came here for my birthday with about 12 guests last Sunday. We came here at the same time last year for my birthday and really enjoyed it. We had a reservation for 1pm. I was unaware that they were serving brunch and a limited lunch menu only during this time. I asked our server if it was possible to order off their regular menu but she said we could not. That was disappointing because I do not eat meat or dairy and there weren't any options available on their limited menu that I could eat (I normally order the veggie burger off their regular menu). I ended up just ordering a small pizza off their limited lunch menu without the cheese (It was pretty much just dough with some sauce on it). All of our food orders ended up coming out at drastically different times- Like by the time I finished my pizza, my aunt received her salad. I did enjoy my pizza. However, my sister, who ordered the breakfast buffet, couldn't even cut through the English muffin used for her eggs benedict was so hard.

Also, the service- As someone who has waitressed in the past, I am very forgiving when it comes to service. However, the service here Sunday was painfully slow. We did not receive our drinks until we were almost done eating, despite putting in our drink orders first. When my family initially put their food orders in the waitress completely skipped over me and I wasn't able to find her again to place my order until she came back over to our table about 10 minutes later (Oddly though, my pizza came out before the rest of my family's food orders. Not sure what happened there?) I had to order the bread and oil, even though that is normally brought over to the table as soon as you sit down. The waitress, however, was very nice.

We absolutely love NYAJ's and for awhile it had not been our regular go to place but now it has. The food is always fresh and the staff is very attentive. The nice perk is that you can reserve a table via OT and not wait or not wait long for a table when you get there.

Our group of ladies was more than happy with everything.... First, let me say our Server, Quirah, set the tone -- ALL positive. Taking our orders as folks arrived through sorting the bills -- all so smooth and she was right on.... Her attention and recommendations were superb. Special beverage and food requests were all fulfilled without an issue and always with a smile. The Food was prepared perfectly to everyone's request. Most of our party had been before, but several had not..... All of us plan a return trip with the group or individually. Because it was Saturday, we knew there would be no major discounts like Martini Monday or Taco Tuesday, but we still enjoyed the Anniversary menu, etc. We will all return and very happy that our tables were set in advance and our reservation was handled perfectly, as requested.

NYAJ is always a good place to come for good food at a reasonable price. My wife had the haddock which she really enjoyed, one friend had the jambalaya which had a very nice spice and flavor to it, another had the ahi tuna salad that was prepared perfectly. I had the steak wedge salad medium rare which was prepared very well.

We arrived about 8 minutes late to the restaurant and I was nervous the table would have been given away, but it was not. Thank goodness because the front was packed with guests waiting for a table - easily a 20 minute wait.

Our server was great - friendly, attentive, prompt. Service was a bit delayed at first since they were so busy, but it worked out because it gave the kiddos (7,6,4)a chance to settle down.

We had the steak tips and a cheeseburger while the kids had tenders and pasta. Everyone was pleased with their food.

I've come here a few times, but this was the first time using OpenTable. Next time I come back I will be using OpenTable again!

First time at this location. Made a reservation on Open Table and were immediately seated while others were waiting (sorry to those who were waiting). Food was great, service even better (thank you Jenna). Will go back again.
