    I need to complement this restaurant. I went there and sat outside. They had umbrella's and our umbrella fell due to wind. The manager was Extremely nice and apologetic. The umbrella was poorly secured to its base. He not only apologized, but he comped our meal with our asking. That was Excellent customer Service. I will return. Thank you.

    We love NYAJ's, but this visit was just off. The bread (usually fresh out of the oven, or at least room temp) was cold enough to have just been pulled from the fridge and then missed the microwave. We did ask for a replacement, which seemed ot at least have been reheated. The jambalaya was extremely salty, to the point of being hard to eat. That said, the chicken parmesan was good, though the crusting was a little doughy, and the carrot cake was very good. Our server was attentive without being annoying. We'll definitely be back and will hope the food issues have been balanced out by then.

    Our server was great and anticipated our every need. The bread and cheesy butter dip is the perfect appetizer, and our strawberry fields salad was excellent. The meat dishes were slightly overcooked which was the only disappointment since we have ordered these entrees in the past and they were done perfectly to order.

    I have been here many times and have never been disappointed. Yesterday I joined two friends and I had the Chicken Caprese Sandwich, which had grilled chicken with melted fresh mozzarella, marinated tomatoes, pesto aioli and arugula on toasted ciabatta with fries. The sandwich was luscious and the fries were cooked perfectly and I couldn't stop eating them. Our waiter, Jon W, was gracious and funny. I brought home 2 BBQ Meatloaf meals for dinner with a huge piece of carrot cake. The carrot cake was delicious and my husband and I had plenty to share. I wanted to show you what the sandwich looked like and it fell over so it's not a pretty picture but you can see all the filling, it was to die for!

    We had the jambalaya and the meatloaf. The jambalaya was way too salty. The meatloaf was very heavy. I felt bloated afterwards only ate half the portion. The bang bang shrimp as an appetizer were good

    Our waiter didn’t speak to us unless he absolutely had to. He was so unfriendly. He also walked away when my mom was speaking to him to go to another table. My fish and chips were completely over cooked and when I mentioned it to the server he didn’t seem to care. I would have expected better customer service

    Excellent gluten-free menu. First time in over a year that I went to restaurant with Gluten Free options without getting cross-contamination cramps a couple of hours later. The serving portions were very generous. It is a bit pricey, but worth it.

    Our waitress was excellent, but sadly she didn’t cook the food! I ordered a Waldorf salad with grilled chicken. The chicken was inedible. At one point, it was so tough I had to remove it from my mouth into a napkin. I should have complained but I just didn’t care enough. I have successfully had the ahi tuna salad the last two times I went. The Lesson Learned? DO NOT EAT THE CHICKEN!

    It was easy to get a reservation. When we arrived early, we were seated right away. The server was outstanding, offering suggestions, being on top of things at just the right time, very professional. Everyone loved the menu. We've been many times but the couple we were with were first timers .... same as last Sunday with different first timers. Both couples love the food choices, the food itself and the venue. Thanks for being there - in Reston and Woodbridge - our two favorites.

    The food is always great, the food is really good. They have the worst ladies room. One stall was “out of service”, the hand drier is weak and blows cold air, and their toilet paper is the cheapest available - you can’t pull it off the roll it just breaks into little squares. Seriously, you. And I better than that- how much money are you saving by buying the absolute cheapest TP on the market?
