We really enjoy eating at NYAJ's because of the selection on the menu. I am gluten free and love the large GF menu and GF bread they bring to the table separately from the rest of my group. It was a little busy the other night and warm in the restaurant but we still had a pleasant experience and will definitely return.

We were traveling and stumbled upon this gem. Several members in our party eat gluten free and they had an extensive, yummy menu. Our server was so kind and helpful. Wish we had one in our hometown!

Pedestrian. Room was hot. Wine list was minimalist, and several everyday types of wines on list were out of stock? Bread was microwaved, chicken may have been as well. Just a below average meal. Chicken reminded me of a Sysco precooked product. The lightest grill marks that certainly didn’t represent a full cooking and the texture was rubbery.

The service was horrible. The waiter came to our table and immediately let me know he has been at work all day and he may not be my server. We had to request bread while everyone else has some. When our food arrived it was not hot. When the manager took it to the back and brought it back it was hot on one side. When time to pay the waiter came back without my change. No plans of ever going back .

We love this restaurant and come here often. The food and service are consistently excellent.
One recent change that was a poor decision was removing salt and pepper from the tables--now you must ask for it and then wait while entrees are cooling for busy servers to bring it to you. This change may be a nod to healthier eating but the option of not using salt was always available. Please bring back the salt and pepper in the table.

This is the third time in a month that I've dined and brought friends with me to this restaurant. Two recommendations: 1)when someone is celebrating a birthday or other anniversary, a complimentary dessert would be a nice gesture; 2)leftovers should be boxed in a container that does not absorb broth/juices and get soggy. Otherwise, very enjoyable!

The restaurant was pretty busy for a Saturday night, food tasted great and the service was just ok. We were at the table for about 10 minutes before someone took our drink order and the server must have been very busy because she didn’t stop by very often. Also, my wife never got the gluten free bread that was promised. Our food had arrived the time we had then opportunity to remind the server. We’ve dined here several times and will in the future. The food was always been great and the service is normally great.

It took a bit for our server to come to the table, but the quality of food and service combined created quite the experience. The food was delicious, hefty portions and refills without having to even lookup or as for them. The server made sure that we were well taken care of. We will be back soon.

This was the second time we are at NYAJ this month and the second time the service was great and the food was wonderful.

The culinary director even came out to educate me about their impossible burger. I challenge you to try it and tell me if you can tell the difference. Very much recommended!

Still a great experience, though the food took a while to come out for rare steaks. Been here enough to know that's not the norm. This is a go to spot for me.

Waiter was pleasant and attentive. Food was superb -- I had the rosemary scallops -- have never tasted anything better (and I don't even like seafood, usually). NYAJ is always a little noisy, but other popular places are worse. Overall, a wonderful experience, as always -- we go there frequently and will continue to do so.

A wonderful surprise! After a long day of travel we had a delicious dinner. We expected good but it was sensational! Our server Jasmine was efficient, helpful and very nice. We loved her! My husband’s chicken piccata was perfect and my scallops with rosemary skewers were out of this world! Loved the couscous part of the dish. We dine out often, especially in theNew York area. This meal was one of the best ever! We will search out “joe’s” from now on. Hope they come to NJ!

Made a reservation, ..but despite tables being open we were seated at a table in the bar section. It was too loud. Probably would be better to not do that when people have a reservation. However our waiter was great.
