The food it was fabulous as always. We sat at the bar and the bartender was very friendly and attentive. She was right on top of taking our order and asking if we would like refills for our drinks. The bar was busy but she didn’t miss a beat.
The manager Norm came over to say hello. He always makes you feel like you are the most important person in the room. More restaurant front managers should do this, rather than just sit people down and forget about them.
Nice touch Norm, our dining experience was perfect.

The food here is generally very very good, we were slightly disappointed because the appetizer we chose was Ahi tuna wonton, the dressings used we’re not as complementary as they have been in the past. I suspect that a new chef is preparing the appetizer. Hopefully it will get back to the standards that we have been come accustomed too. We also ordered the chicken piccata, and the amount of acidic lemon was less than I’ve been in the past. We attribute this to a new chef as well.

First time going here, heard great things. My food was not hot and actually a bit cold but they were very apologetic and refunded my meal. The drinks were amazing and the staff was very friendly. I will return to give them another chance of course.

Waldorf salad is wonderful! Whether you get the steak tips, the salmon or the shrimp as a side, you can't go wrong! All of them are delish! Fresh & tasty. Chicken enchiladas are also delish. Service is always top notch & a fun atmosphere!

The service was excellent, the food and portion size were also great. The only glitch we had was that my sister in laws chicken enchiladas were delayed because they initially came out burnt and the waiter sent them back before he even brought it out to us, so we ate before she did. The staff handled it perfectly, they brought her a complimentary bowl of soup while she waited and took her meal off the bill. I wish I got the name of our waiter, the service was perfect, kept us updated on food, checked in, and refilled our waters when low.

Everything was amazing, the food and the service! I also enjoy there being less tables due to COVID guidelines. It decreases the noise level, and the space issues we previously experienced in visits prior to COVID.

The Greek pizza was delicious, the steak tips and mustard crusted chicken sandwich were yummy, as was the sangria. It was busy again and more patrons sitting inside. I can’t wait for outside dining again!

I’m a huge fan of NYAJs and now Original Joes. The food is always excellent. On Tuesday evening my friend and I both got the Tuesday taco special. Though the margarita was great the tacos and entire meal ( rice and beans, slaw, pick de Gallo) was not up to Joes standard. It was not flavorful but was bland. I asked the waiter for some salsa but. he said just the pico de Gallo ( I think that’s what it’s called) which was already on my plate which had little taste. He couldn’t offer me any salsa but only Tabasco sauce. My friends plate didn’t have any pico de Gallo on it at all for some reason.
We both got the one of each taco option.
This isn’t going to stop me from coming back but I won’t order that again.
