    We were celebrating a birthday with 6 adults and 4 children, 5 years of age and younger. Our waitress was exceptional I'm anticipating our needs and fulfilling them before we asked. The evening was quite enjoyable with great service and great food.

    The experience was overall enjoyable and the service was very good. I appreciate that on a Saturday night I could make a reservation for 6 people at 6:45, 15 minutes in advance. The food prep and presentation is consistent compared with past visits, but it seems prices are increasing with no apparent change in quality.

    I have always had good food at NYAJ, but the pork schnitzel I got for dinner last night (Friday) was pretty tasteless. I brought half of it home, but I plan to throw it out. Service was extremely slow. Our server was very friendly, but we (4 of us) were there for 45 minutes before she took our drink order, and we were seated at a table by the bar. It didn’t appear to be that busy as there were several empty tables. They may have been understaffed, but that is not an excuse to not take our drink order sooner. A very disappointing experience. Not sure I will go back.

    NYAJ's has raised its prices to the point where it will be a while before we go back. $28 for a piece of salmon at lunch at a casual restaurant is pricey. Service was very good, we always feel welcome.

    Service was excellent and everyone raved about their food. I ordered Chicken Piccata and if anything I’d tell the chef to add a little more sauce as it was a little dry but everyone else was impressed with their dishes.

    Restaurant was nicely quiet. Dinner conversation was very plesant Food was very good however the menu seem smaller that when we were there pre-covid. While the Clam Linguni was very good - it was a little too spicy (red pepper flakes) but was re-done without any hassle. both diners really liked it. the Chicken picata was very good and tender. The Clam Bake was also well liked. Would be nice to have a plainer bread choice (i.e. rosemary) as opposed to just the onion bread.

    We were a party of 7 celebrating a birthday and dining early (4pm) on a Sunday; that's probably why it was so quiet. Or server was Brandon, and he was excellent. Drinks delivery was prompt, the food was very good (try the meatloaf) and though we were dead-center, the seating was comfortable and clean. Nice lighting, too.

    My wife & I sat at the bar for lunch and Maggie was the bartender. I think she has her own fan club of regulars and it’s obvious why. She is engaging, charming and attentive, all while multitasking during a busy lunchtime. Good food & vibe at NYAJ. Sign us up for a repeat visit. Kudos to Maggie. She’s not your average Maggie!
