The salmon -- while quite good -- seemed to be a rather small portion. I'm guessing it was 4 oz, which seems a little light for a dinner entree priced at $21.

My dining companions both had sirloin tips, which they liked, though one commented on them being rather salty.

I've always had good experiences at this location and others of this chain, so I'll give them another try, but they need to win me back. Right now, I'm skeptical.

1ST time i was disappointed with NYAJ. Ordered Sangria that was not sweet at all. 3 sips and done. Ordered Lobster bisque that didn't taste like it and 2 other tables sent it back also. The main dinners were fine.

WE WENT TO LUNCH FOR VALENTINE'S DAY AND IWE STARTED WITH THE FRESH BREAD AND OLIVE OIL FOR DIPPING WHICH IS ALWAYS THE GREAT START TO A DELICIOUS MEAL. I ENJOYED THE SURF N TURF SPECIAL WHICH WAS COOKED TO PERFECTION AND MY HUSBAND HAD THE HADDOCK SANDWICH WITH FRIES. THE BEEF WAS JUST PERFECT AND VERY TENDER AND THE LOBSTER RAVIOLI'S WE JUST RIGHT. THE DESSERT WAS EXCELLENT TOO.

Three of us (husband, wife and adult daughter) dined at NYA Joe's in order to try the special Valentine menu and we were all pleased with our selections. The lobster bisque was excellent - and I am not easy to impress with seafood bisques and chowders. The heart beet a& goat cheese salad was enjoyed by my wife. She also ordered the surf and turf special featuring filet medallions and lobster tortellini which was excellent. My daughter started with the Thai chicken lettuce wraps - one of her all-time favorites , then ordered the herb-roasted statler chicken breast and loved it. My entree was herb-crusted haddock and it was exactly to my liking. We barely had room for dessert so split one order of
Love in a Glass," the Valentine special dessert, which we all loved.
Our dinner was on a busy Saturday evening but despite how busy it was, our waitress was attentive and gave excellent service.

I usually love NYAJ but the food at this location doesn’t compare in taste or quality to other locations for some reason. Great menu variety and good service, but I won’t be rushing back to this location.

Food quality has gone downhill in the past year tonight medium rare steak tips were well done roasted brussel sprouts tasted like char no seasoning same with the fish no seasoning. While the sautéed spinach was extremely salty. The Caesar salad came out with the entree instead of before.

After years of being regulars will not be back again.

We always enjoy the atmosphere at this location and all of the servers are wonderful and accommodating. However the last several times we’ve gone the quality of the food has really declined. Food is either under or over cooked, is not as flavorful and just seems to lack the attention to detail that made us regular patrons in the past.

I booked a reservation at Not Your Average Joes for a work holiday lunch. The table was ready upon arrival and the staff were very quick to bring us our drinks and food. I was pleased to see they had healthy options for those that were watching their weight and lots of tastey bread and oil for those that weren't. Thank you for making our team holiday lunch a great one!

My husband and I always enjoy eating at Not Your Average Joe's in Westborough. The food is always fresh and delicious. We request Marlo every time we dine there. She is an exceptional server. She makes recommendations about new items on the menu, is very friendly and always goes above and beyond. We will be back for another visit very soon.

We normally choose this restaurant 2-3 times a month because we enjoy the food and have had great service. However, I must say I was disappointed this past time with the treatment as we came into the restaurant. I made the reservation early the same morning, and when we arrived, the young man was going to seat us and asked the manager - who replied "no, tell them they have to wait 10-15 minutes for a table" ... we have NEVER had to wait like that (NO ONE WAS WAITING AT THE TIME) and even when it has been incredibly busy, we have been always treated great and seated within 5 minutes. This manager seems to have a different type of attitude and one that I don't care for. I took a "buzzer" and then went back 5 minutes later to specifically ask the manager to clarify why the young man seemed to have a table for us and yet he wanted us to wait and I explained I wanted to be sure I had accurate information for my review on Open Table - and unbelievable - we were seated within a few minutes. Everything else was great as it always is - but I will think twice about coming back any time soon. There are so many great restaurants in the area to choose from, and now with this type of treatment - we will try some of the others.

Once again NYAJ's provides a nice meal at a reasonable price. I'm consistently pleased with the variety of the menu, the prices and the good service. I also appreciate that the make the effort to update the menu seasonally, rather than just sticking with the same old. In addition, the wine list covers a wide price range, so there's something for everyone. All in all, I always feel like a get my money's worth when I dine there!

We were seated 15 minutes later than our 7:30 reservation time. The server was very nice but kept us waiting to place a drink/app order. Nachos were the smallest portion I’ve ever seen, but tasty. Our meals took so long to arrive that my daughter didn’t have time to eat her dinner before she had to leave for her soccer game. My husband’s burger was undercooked. The server did give us a gift card to apologize for the wait which was nice. We’ve been to the Acton restaurant and have had great experiences.

We were seated on time. The beer and wine lists were good. We were a party of 5. 2 of us had the pork chop which was undercooked. It was sent back and instead of sending new ones, the same pieces came out , delivered by the manager, and were completely dried out. I had the mustard chicken which was flavorless and greasy. The steak tips were good as was the pizza.

We went with a birthday coupon. I had herb crusted haddock. It was perfect. The bread to start, has my daughter at college coming home on the weekends. A sangria, was perfect. My date had a salad and was happy (diet). We skipped dessert, but left with Happy Birthday wishes from at least 3 staff members that went out of their way. Thank you NYAJ!

The turnaround time from when we ordered to when we received our food was unacceptable. This is the second time in 3 visits we had this problem. Our waitress was good as it wasn't her fault the kitchen was so slow (it wasn't that crowded). Won't be in a hurry to go back. One other note, the staff shouldn't be so quick to say "your food should be up in a minute" when they probably do not have any facts to support the statement if the food comes out 15 minutes later.
