Had outstanding service and GREAT food. My wife an I usually split an entrée and this restaurant did not disappoint. They split the entrée in the back and brought two plates to the table. I greatly appreciate them doing this as we often wind up scraping half onto another plate brought to our table after the food arrives. The food was FANTASTIC and the BREAD!!! OMG!!
The food was not good. My veggies were WAY undercooked ( carrots and green beans) and the meal
( Sirloin Tips) was served on an appetizer size plate ( not exaggerating) and every time I tried to cut my meat the veggies spilled off the plate and on to the table. My husband ordered the Jambalaya and it tasted like tomato soup-zero spice. Wine was good and the server was very nice and kind. He did offer to send over the manager but at that point, we just wanted to pay and get home!
I think their food lacks seasoning and it is just ok
We started going to Not Your Average Joes when it first opened. We have always liked the food but lately it seems they are under staffed in the dinning room. It's usually just my wife and I so form now on we'll probably just set at the bar.
Food was great and service was good. Major complaint was that my reservations were screwed up. We were seated at high-top tables (which I specifically said no to when I made the reservation) and we were squeezed into a very tight space.
After sitting for 30 minutes, the waiter came to take our order. We seemed to be frequently ignored. We were sitting for about an hour before we received our food.
Great Experience! Will come back again soon!!
Went to dinner with friends and it was a perfect atmosphere
We were there with friends who were visiting from out of town. I had the we had lettuce wraps to start, which were very awkward to eat -- they weren't really wraps, they were like a salad strewn on top of lettuce -- impossible to eat with hands. but they tasted good. I had jambaliaya and my husband had the scallop pasta dish. both were very good. The only down side was that the waiter was not very attentive and his interpersonal skills were poor.
Good food, overzealous server was an annoyance. Good restaurant.
We eat here on a Friday evening at their busiest time; our service was amazing. Our food arrived in reasonable time and was delicious. The steak was a little tough, but tasty. The salmon was very good, and they asked us how long to cook it (that was a first for us). Great job NYAJ!
Great service provided by our server. Generous portions served with our order.
AlwYs a good experience there. Good food and good service. Go there every couple of weeks.
Thank you to our server he was kind and he did an outstanding job!!
I wish I could get points when I book this restaurant.
Great place, went for dinner on Saturday. Had the tips and tempura for an appetizer. Server could not have been nicer.
Stopped in after getting back from out of town for dinner before heading home on a Friday night. Food was great, as usual, and our server Brie was amazing! Especially when one of the littles was feeling unwell and we needed to pack things up.
It was ok. The one item I was planning to get is no longer on the menu (except for Tuesdays), so that was a disappointment. I got something else & it tasted fine. Our server got switched on us from the very beginning, & neither seemed too happy to be working that day (no idea why). Neither were rude, they were just blah, like maybe they didn't want to be at work. NYAJ has changed a lot over the years & not for the better.
always good food and service. I always make a reservation to assure not having to wait.
I took my team of 10 for a luncheon and enjoyed the entrees and the quality of food & portion size was perfect! Good value for the size of the party & total price.
Quality of food was poor service was marginal. We go there often when in town but will not be back
Love the gluten free options! The spaghetti squash mushroom bolognese is tasty and filling... the portion is three times what Founding Farmers up the street gives you for the same amount of money. The gluten free carrot cake was also delicious. For some reason the GF rolls did not have onions in them for this visit, but they are normally very yummy as well.
Great food, great service.
Definitely yes. Was disappointed in the very small rollI was served as my gluten free bread.
The food was amazing!!!
This is a great restaurant with very relaxed eating environment, friendly customer services and reasonably priced food. We love it and will go back.
We had dinner with out of town relatives. We all enjoyed our meals and enjoyed the ambiance, although the noise level was high. I should have thought about that when we booked our reservation for 6:30 on Friday night. We will definitely come back again, but possibly on a quieter night. Thanks for a great evening.
The service was not great - multiple times we ran out of beverages and had to ask for more instead of it just being provided. The food was not well cooked - the salmon under and over cooked, the rice under cooked. The broccoli was good. The decorations were appealing.
We had a good meal, great service and a nice time.
the food was great, however the service was poor, very slow. we got more help from others peoples service
We selected the St. Patrick's Day special of corned beef and cabbage. My dining partner and I were both very disappointed The only truly eatable portions were the potatoes and carrots. The meat and cabbage should not have been plated. The meat was very tough and rubbery and the cabbage was dry and tough.
A fantastic experience as I've been to other NYAJ's in the New England area and brought some local friends who had heard about the restaurant...
They where incredibly pleased and decided to put it in their regular restaurant rotation...
The staff from the hostess to the GM were friendly and anticipated our every need...
Excellent service, lots of food choices. However my dish was not seasoned well. It was a little too loud. Overall not bad;)
Asked for window table and was ignored
When I made the reservation, I noted it was a birthday.
That didn’t seem to have had an impact. Which was fine.
The Food was ok, not great.
Birthday for a friend and everyone signed a card and gave it to my friend !!! The food was delicious !
I was meeting a friend from high school that I hadn’t seen in a decade. She texted that she was running 20 minutes late, but they sat me, brought yummy bread and were very patient. Even though my server was going through training, she did great (and learned a lot about customer service).
Great time. Great gluten free choices
We really loved our dinner at Not Your Avwrage Joes. The food was great and the service was great! It was pretty busy for a sunday afternoon, but overall we had a great time celebrating my moms birthday!
