our classic cheese pizza
Super Crunch Salad
chopped salad with grilled chicken, quinoa, apples, pistachios, avocado, spinach, oranges, cukes, mint, cilantro and orange-sesame dressing
We hand-bread it, pan-sear it and let the flavor speak for itself…mustard-marinated and panko crusted, with seasonal veg and mashed potatoes. Gluten-free version available
Stacked Tostadas and sangria were amazing! Thank you!
While we were able to make a reservation on open table the restaurant itself was closed when we arrived.
Love NYAJ, been a loyal customer for years. Dined in for the first time since COVID and appreciated the outside dining flexibility.
Wait staff VERY pleasant and prompt. Food was fantastic!!
Excellent service and good food. We had not been here in years and years..but will return again soon.
Always get a good meal! And it’s so nice to have gluten free options as I have celiac disease.
very pleasant outdoor patio. good variety on the menu, reasonable prices. always wonderful service.
The service was almost overly solicitous. The food was not great...the bread came out raw at first. The entree was bland and the coffee was atrocious. The best things were the sangria and raspberry sorbet. I miss the Needham location!
Our waitress who we luv was very busy covering the bar and tables.
Wonderful sitting out on the patio for dinner. Waitstaff was friendly and very efficient for a very busy weekend night!
Still favorite but miss the bloody marys. Please bring them back
Indoor dining is getting back and NYAJs in Watertown is a great place to start.
Excellent service, good food and nice ambiance Our waiter was great! Service was timely and our server surprised my daughter with a candle on her dessert and the staff sang Happy Birthday. I will be returning.
It was actually an average experience.
Our wait staff person, Jessica, was warm & attentive. She delivered excellent service. My BBQ meatloaf was delicious & my Margarita was perfect.
First time back since the pandemic started. Very quiet, new menu, but the food is just as good as it ever was. We'll be back!
Outstanding good, great service!!
Nice outside space, menu offers good variety and good value.
Food was excellent and our server was outstanding.....can't remember his name but he gets an A+ in customer service!
We got there about 9:06pm didn’t get someone’s attention for about 5-6 minutes. The hostess was also serving us she took a while to get drinks, mind you the restaurant was not busy.
It was a lovely dinner to celebrate Mother’s Day. Everyone enjoyed their meal, kids included. Desserts were very good too’
Delicious as always. Mustard crusted chicken and AHI tuna poke bowl are insanely good. Service rocked as always.
Attentive service, flexible menu choices,excellent wine selections
We were three in our party on a Saturday evening, and requested a booth. The only one available was a booth for six, and she gave it to us. Our waitress was Kendra (or close) and she is one of the best waitresses we've met. All of us agreed. The drinks were excellent. Good bar. Had one appetizer that came promptly and hot. We ate three entrees: a chicken, a pizza and a Ahi tuna. All delicious and well prepared. No dessert, though tempting.
We lost our birthday certificate but decided to have this birthday dinner at NYAJ's anyway because we could walk and it was convenient. Ordered two drinks from the bar, and they were excellent. Had two entrees that came promptly and warm. Our waiter checked on us mid meal, and everything was done with social distancing in mind. There were more than six feet between us the the next table.
The food is always good and the service was great.
Always enjoy Joe's.. but this last time we were there on a Sunday for Brunch: and they had no Bloidy Mary mix or Tomato Juice?!?? What??!!.
Very very dissappointing
Wonderful to be able to return to a restaurant. great meal of steak tips and mustard encrusted chicken. Not crowded and quiet - more relaxing than a typical pre covid Sat night. Nice attentive waitress and hostess
The menu is much smaller now. Hopefully this is temporary.
The food was absolutely delicious.
Chuck is the best waiter.
Lots of space between table during cover! Waitress was wonderful-very up-beat! Quick service and drinks! My food was excellent-shrimp/chicken/rice bowl with avocado and mango ! My husband had the mustard chicken he had once before but it wasn't as good! Plain steamed broccoli with it. Good value
Always good. Bring back the bowls!
It was good - friendly staff and quiet atmosphere
The waiter staff is pleasant. Hostess friendly all in their masks and try to keep a 6ft distance, thank you.
We love coming their; it's clean and it's
Friendly. Food is good.

NYA Joe's is always tasty and satisfying. The dumplings were delicious. They added teriyaki sauce to my simple salmon. The focaccia with dip is a draw every trip.
Service was great! Kendra was a gem! Food was good cocktails were amazing!
It was my birthday.
It's very quiet in Covid, but feels very safe. The tables are sanitized and only every other one is available. The staff are great and I always feel completely safe eating here. I cant believe more people dont eat out here during Covid, it's the perfect option. The menu is reduced but it still has the wonderful ceasar salad and a kid menu - lifesaver for when I cant be bothered to cook!
Server was terrific, felt very safe with COVID rules applied. Masks for everyone and quick service. Was disappointed with my $16 salad in that the avocado was mostly brown, but the rest was good. Just not sure why it would be served very obviously brown as I had to scrape it off.
Very welcoming and clean, spacious environment. Attentive staff. Good food and drinks
