I had the simply grilled salmon and it was very good. Not heavy sauces, just a nice grilled fish. Rice and brussel sprouts made it a nice healthy meal.
Didn't get bread all night. I ordered a salad and didn't even get pita bread with it like it said on the menu. Every other table got bread except for us. I will not be going back.
We didn’t have to wait for a seat and the food was delicious!
Food was good. Showed up early for reservation but did not seat us until after scheduled time which was disappointing but service and food were very good.
Loud, poor service, scallops were not as advertised- will never go back
Our waitress was excellent. It was very busy and the noise level was a little extreme. We had a reservation and we were 10 minutes early and there was no where to sit and wait besides going back outside. Next time we won’t show up until the time of our reservation.
Always consistent with food and service.
Our dining experience started with the convenience of being able to make a reservation using Open Table. We received friendly, efficient service, and had well prepared, great tasting food.
The waitress must have been new but other than that everything was great!
We enjoyed our meals and our server, Jessica. The lemon peppercorn chicken fettuccini dish was nicely flavored and the chicken was grilled "well done", as I requested. My husband ordered the barbecued meatloaf and the portion was thick, generous, and delicious. The carrots & mashed potatoes were nice side dishes and had extra flavor, not bland. Our fried apple cinnamon dessert was the perfect ending. We are happy with our meal, service, and choice of seating and we'll certainly go there again!
Food and service was outstanding.
Waitress kept disappearing. hard to get water refilled, order additional items and get extra plates/utensils when needed. Food was average, pasta was horrible. Would not repeat this meal.
Not Your Average Joe's is a great go-to place when you want a dependable, casual meal. We often go here for an extra birthday meal (they have a nice bday reward), when family is in town, or for their happy hour specials. I especially love the focaccia/dipping sauce and the bottomless flavored lemonade. We have always had excellent service when we visit and this time was no exception!
Service was absolutely awful. Dirty dishes form appetizers piled up on our table & were not cleared until we paid our check. Drinks remained empty long after asking for refills. NO check backs on food. Manager walked by and ignored our Jenga-Like pile of dirty dishes on our table as well. Really awful service, food was just OK.
NYAJ is my favorite "go to" when looking for great food, fast service and a great atmosphere. It's a great place for families as well. The menu changes seasonally, but there are always a few favorites that stay, like the Meatloaf!
We made a dinner reservation which allowed 90 minutes for eating and gave us time to get to a movie. They seated us late and so we had to rush to finish on time.
We had no idea the restaurant would be so busy. Will not dine there again on a weekend or if we have somewhere else to be following dinner.
Not Your Average Joe's consistently puts out delicious food. We had the Providence Restaurant Week fixed price dinner and the portions were a tad smaller, but the food was delicious. I had the Spaghetti Squash Bolognese and my nephew had the Salmon. It took a very long time for our desserts to arrive and they were pre-ordered. Also, the waitress, who was delightful, did not ask my nephew if he was finished with his soup but took it right out from under him, he had two delicious spoonfuls left to go! Oh well - otherwise, a really energetic place and the manager is always concerned and visits.
Very good, great service
Great time and awesome menu for restaurant week!
Food was good, service was great. My only issue is that when I make a reservation, I don't expect to have to wait an additional 20-25 minutes past the reservation time.
casual dining, a little crowded but wait not long with reservations
Reservation was for 6 PM. Were not seated until 630. Another five minutes for waitress to come over. Waited again for our drinks. Over all too crowded. Bad experience
I made reservations for 6:15 on a Friday night. We got there and the place was packed with lots of people waiting. We were seated around 6:25. Bread with dipping oil -- fantastic. All food: seafood fettucine, meatloaf, caesar salad and crab cake appetizer -- excellent. My only complaint -- and not the first time I've made it -- is the music. Loud, unnecessary, and it harms the ambiance. Love the food and can't wait to come back.
Overall reasonable, but they have slipped
One of our party sent salmon back twice, once for being over cooked and then for being raw in the center
The remaining meals were very good.
Always love the food. Reliably yummy, good service, nice cocktails and wine
Perfect place to meet up with family and friends. Something for everyone on the menu, including those with gluten allergies!
Food was delicious. Had the French braised beef onion soup which was so good, I’d go back just for that!!
Never had a negative experience in the multiple times I have gone. Keenan was an awesome server who was personable, knowledgeable, and overall nice guy.
The bread and dipping oil were the best part of the meal!
Food is always good, love the variety. Service has been exceptional, very friendly
Always a great meal and great service. I've been to this location many times and have never walked out without a smile on my face
Kristen (sp) was the real reason for the high rating!
Once again NYAJ did not disappoint. Our meals were very good and service was great. Will definitely go back before PPAC again.
We love dining at Joe's. The food is consistently good, and the wait staff are excellent. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars for overall, is that we had a bit of a wait on drinks. The bar staff was backed up with orders, apparently. I appreciate the birthday gift I get each year from Joe's!
NYAJ is one of my favorites. However, on this visit the service was lacking. Thank goodness the food was great. Would still go back, probably just an off night
Our lunch was mediocre at best. The tomato basil soup which has always been my favorite was watered down. My husband's BBQ meatloaf was overcooked as were the carrots. The meatloaf needed a steak knife to cut through it. My wedge salad with steak was spoiled by tough, gristly steak. We have been disappointed with NYAJ's enough times now, especially at this location, that we may have to reconsider a return visit.
Ambiance was casual and service was great!
Great place for a casual meal. Good selection of food and drinks. Great service as well
Used open table. Arrived on time. Additional 15 minute wait for table. Service was attentive. Food was great. Good beer selection
The service was great, I was disappointed with the food. Just not as tasty as it has been in the past
