Food was ok. Service was slow. We met people later on who tried this restaurant 1-2 times but the service was so slow they had to leave (for the theater) without eating. Very noisy.

We ordered our old standbys, the skewered scallops and jambalaya. Happy to report each delicious dish is now back to standard serving size after some shrinkage apparent in earlier visit.
Noise level fell precipitously as the 8 o'clock hour rolled around and many guests left.

High quality food, attractive presentations. Makes a difference when the meal is prepared from scratch. Wish you would bring back more unique, unusual items now and then: duck; sauerbraten; pork bellies; lamb sliders...You have the ability to make these things; your menu is getting a little boring. BTW, I used to love the "waldorf" salad, but it seems to be lacking in quality and ingredients the last few times, was mostly lettuce last time. Add more nuts, etc.

We visited on St Patrick’s Day. It was very busy for dinner but we were seated immediately with a reservation. The staff were dressed very festively and although 7pm was a very busy time, the service was great and the food prepared in a timely manner. I was hoping for green beer or any Irish specialty cocktails for the occasion but was disappointed that there weren’t any. The only Irish specialty was the corned beef dinner which my husband enjoyed but additional Irish specialties would have been nice if offered. Food and service was great and we will be back again soon.

We were attending the Company Theatre, so decided to take advantage of the 15% discount this restaurant offered . The bread they served before the meal was delicious, so expectations were high. Unfortunately that was not the case, the food was awful. My salad was brown and I had to pick through to find some decent lettuce and the pizza was underdone, doughy and floppy, however husbands wedge salad was okay. I do have to commend them on their servers they were fast, attentive and efficient. I would not recommend this restaurant.

Very disappointing - over the years nyaj has been one of my favorite chains....actually, I am not a fan of most chains but I enjoyed this concept. Good food consistent and priced well, staff and management that seemed well trained and engaged and an aggressively priced wine program that I loved featuring amazing wines at incredible values.

I have noticed over the last 2 yrs the quality and service has dropped dramatically...at least in this location....as an example my daughter selected this to celebrate her 15th bday dinner and although I made a point to include a note In my open table reservation there was zero mention of it....we even went so far as to inform the server, who was nice but was clearly stretched thin, and still not even a quick visit from manager to acknowledge, no candle in dessert...nothing?

Foods ok but the concept has become very sterile in feel unfortunately.

Experience was not up to usual standards. Food was not served as ordered. When noted to waitress, told a fix would result in even more issues. Fix resulted in very poor quality result making protein basically inedible. Very disappointing.

As always, a great experience. Our Open Table reservation was for 6:30 and we arrived at 6:30 and were immediately seated even while many people were waiting for tables. Superb reservation management and much appreciated! The service from Brian was as friendly and properly attentive as usual - we were well taken care of throughout the meal. The food was great and we were able to take advantage of the Company Theater discount, as well as a couple of coupons we had. Love being on Joe's list for special offers.

You just can't do better for a dining experience that meets and exceeds expectations consistently than to dine at Joe's.

We have usually enjoyed our dining at NYAJ's. But this time the food was overcooked and poor. The service was unusually slow, but not the waitress fault.
However, the Restaurant was extremely busy. We, and many others, dined prior to going to the Company Theater.

We usually get a small booth when we go before our play. However the person in charge would not give us a booth because he said we had to request it. However there’s no place to request a booth on OpenTable. He seem to be less inclined to make an exception we will think again before going back to this restaurant

had tickets to a show at Norwell Community Theater which is 5 minutes away from restaurant. Best Ahi Tuna Won Tons my wife has ever had. Steak tips perfectly cooked, juicy and tasty accompanied by home made mashed potatoes and under cooked green beans. Great hand crafted cocktails, nice wine list. Perfect for a before or after show meal. Appears to be in an old Ground Round building right off of Rte 3, exit 14, in Norwell.

I have been to this location several times and I keep going back. Glad it is back on OpenTable. My review for this visit is somewhat split. We were seated right away which was great. I ordered the chicken piccata entree which was very good. My friend ordered the double thick pork chop which was served with a risotto and arugula. The pork chop was ordered medium cooked which is the restaurant standard according to our server. I would always order pork to be cooked medium. The center of the chop was very pink which concerned me. It clearly was undercooked in the middle. Since we had waited close to an hour for our entrees my friend did not bother sending it back. Also there was barely any risotto on the plate. I estimated there to be about a tablespoon and 1/2 of risotto with a scant sprinkling of arugula. The chop was large and dominated the plate. Initially I thought there was only the chop on the plate. It was a very busy night. Our server was doing the best she could considering the business and other than the long wait for our entrees service was pretty good.

Great restaurant for our pre show dinner on girl's night out to the Company Theater in Norwell. Service was excellent and we all enjoyed our entrees as well as ooooohhhhh that bread/oil/cheese and seasonings, highlight of the meal. Good food as well as diverse selection and service that was prompt and got us out and to our show in plenty of time.
