Waitress was fair. No salt French fries were mostly overcooked; baked haddock and asparagus were done well.

Waitress looked at me strangely when I asked for no salt added to food; have been to NYAJs many times without that reaction.

It's hard to get my wife out to dinner because she is usually disappointed, Not the case here!
She would go back again which really says something. Everything was fantastic. Not your standard run of the mill entrees. Also nice private atmosphere.

nyaj Randolph used to be "fit for foodies" but lately the quality of the food has slipped as well as the service and presentation (excluding the other evening as our server Halley was wonderful).....BBQ ribs were fatty and greasy, lobster sandwich skimpy, sweet potato fries were wedges and not soft.....wish I knew what was happening to my favorite neighborhood restaurant....

We were a party of 11, including 4 children from ages 6-16. Our server was pleasant, patient and very attentive. The food came quickly and everyone loved what they had ordered. 9 of us were from out of town and had never been to a NYAJ before and they all loved it - in fact they said they will try the one near them when they return to PA. It was a wonderful experience!

Have been here many times and always enjoyed the food. However I ordered the ribs from the new BBQ menu and they were extremely dry and overcooked. I would not order them again or recommend them. My husband ordered the scallops and they were amazing

I enjoyed my meal, I had the flank steak, along with someone else and it was fantastic, my cousin got the pork and loved it.
We both got sangria for our drink, it was so-so no fruit was put on the rim Of the glass or In The glass witch can make a difference in the flavor.

Really great service. Our server responded well to all our requests and even the manager found out it was my birthday and got me a free desert (Gluten-free Carrot cake that was to DIE for.) Also, my wife is a Celiac and she had no problems with any of the Gluten-Free foods.

Recently, My wife and I joined friends for Dinner at Not Your Average Joe's. The portions are not large but the quality of the food makes this restaurant one of our favorites. My most frequently ordered dish is Panko Crusted Chicken. The chicken is always moist and the mustard flavoring makes this an outstanding choice. They also offer a large assortment of salads that can have seafood or chicken added as an option. The wine list by the glass is extensive and moderately priced. I am never disappointed when I dine here.

First time patron. Myself, daughter and family including 3 children for Mother's Day late lunch. Very crowded with line out the door but we had reservations so no waiting. A little noisy with many conversations taking place. Service was excellent despite being super busy. Excellent menu choices for adults and kids. Drinks yummy. Food served without delays. Meals very good with generous portion sizes. Visit from Manager to say hello and make sure our dining experience was going smoothly. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for lunch, dinner or a drink at their bar.

We like NYAJ and have been to a few locations. This one is as good as the two others, better than Westwood, MA. It has the benefit of being a test kitchen site, although we didn't try any of the new dishes.

Our only real complaint is one we have with Needham, too. The stupendous focaccia bread comes to the table having been refrigerated. That is so very disappointing. It should be room temperature.

The dishes were very good, although my steak tips could have been more tender and the beans a bit less oily. Neither problem was worth a complaint at the time, and neither prevented me from finishing!

It started off fine, waiter came right away. We placed our orders which was a burger & chicken lettuce wraps. I could see my food the chicken wraps sitting on the counter so we were just waiting for the burger. About 5 min later he comes with our meal. The cheese on the burger wasn't even melted, so you know that it wasn't warm & the onion strings were cold. My meal was ok it needed more sauce and a bit bolder flavor. From that point on it was no big deal. We've had better meals from that location. It may take a while to go back.

My husband only had a few days left on his birthday coupon, so we decided to head to NYAJ's on a Saturday night. Thank goodness we had reservations! The place was packed and the bar looked super busy. My husband had the steak tips and I had the scallops; both dishes were outstanding. And, of course, there is nothing like the bread and dipping oil ... addictive! Our server was very attentive and we were in a corner away from the noisier section toward the middle of the restaurant.
