Nice dining on the patio with friends. Great food and service. Hoping for a few more days that we can eat on patios!
Waiter was friendly and helpful. Food was outstanding as always.
It was great. It wasn't crowded and we had plenty of space.
Great seasonal menu. Glad to see the full menu is back.
Outdoor patio reservation for dinner mid week. There was plenty of room and tables were distanced. Service and food was excellent (as usual). We will definitely be back.
NYAJ never disappoints!! Always a go to favorite when we are in town.
John was the most incredible server! We had such an amazing evening, service and food were outstanding!
Very friendly management and staff. Makes you feel at home. Great value!
The restaurant was deserted which made us sad, but our reservation was early (6 PM), which is why I rated quiet ambiance. The food was good but not great. I had the salmon special and it had a heavy buttery sauce - too much - and the pesto was also heavily applied. My husband had the pork and potato pancake special. He also said it was just ok. We will go back and support this restaurant.
I like to have dinner at Not Your Average Joe's every time I visit my daughter. We love their salmon with pesto, we love the ciabatta bread with olive oil, chili flakes and parmesan. We ate on the patio and felt very comfortable there. The waiter was personable and helpful. The pork schnitzel special was favorably reviewed by one of our dining party. The Mediterranean chicken salad was very good except too heavy handed with the dressing. I'd forgotten to ask for dressing on the side. We shared a carrot cake dessert which had a lovely homemade flavor.
We ate outside on Saturday night. Staff could not have been more friendly and informative. Food was outstanding....hope it stays warm enough to continue to eating out there....
We have been going to Not Your Average Joes for years. We missed them while they were closed and are happy they are back. They have their full menu, and even though the bar area is closed, you can get any drink you want. The food is excellent and there is a good variety of meals. Everything meets or exceeds COVID requirements as far as cleanliness, ordering food, paying for it, etc.
I got the pork schnitzel and it was so overdone! I happened to be in the middle of an intense conversation and didn't really notice until I had already finished 1 of the 2 pieces, otherwise I would have sent it back. The red cabbage was fine, but the potato pancake was a joke - I had to look for it under the cabbage and it was maybe 3" diameter (and overcooked too).
My companion had a cheeseburger and it was very good (I had a bite).
Great food and great service.
Good outdoor seating and COVID mitigation efforts. Bread and oil delivered as we sat down was fantastic. Food overall was just ok, certainly not bad, but not notably great. Would definitely come here again though.
We have eaten here many times and enjoyed it. This visit was disappointing. Our waitress was not very attentive, the drinks (martinis) were small and weak.
Good menu items...different takes on the usual offerings.
Very below average. GF bread took 30 minutes and 3 requests, waiter sounded like we were bothering him by being there.
Our server Brian K(#341) did an excellent job. Went over the specials. We had already chose what we had missed what we wanted to eat and chose those entree’s. This was our first time back since Covid-19. Spacing and cleanliness made you comfortable. Their complimentary bread was still great.
Great Experience and we will be back!
Happy to be outside and eating great food- my friend is gluten free and there are foods she can eat- even dessert!!
Food was excellent as always, but the service was a little slower that I would have expected given the restaurant had a very small number of people in it on a Wednesday night. Also we let them know in advance that it was my wife's birthday and not a mention of it the whole evening. Finally I had to tell the waiter so they would bring a candle on her dessert. What is the point of entering information like that on the reservation if they are not going to pay attention to it?
We ate outside and I felt quite safe, good social distance, staff all followed covid requirements and food was very good.
Our waiter was outstanding. Great place to enjoy a meal.
They had their same great menu and they took safety seriously. Bravo.
Awesome Food and Exceptional Service. There were very few people inside - most on the patio.
The food is always good, and service prompt and courteous. We sat outside because of Covid, and the staff wore masks the entire time, and had us look up menu items on app. The bread with garlic butter type sauce is always excellent.
I normally really like Not Your Average Joe's, especially the location in Rockville. However the food was not good at this location (admittedly it was a limited menu because of COVID). And while the waiter was nice, the service was extremely slowly, which was surprising because it was not buy when we went. So between the food and service, I'm not in a rush to head back to that restaurant.
Our visit was average with the exception of our waiter. He informed us, almost from the beginning, that he “was still hung over.” He didn’t seem to care anything about what we wanted, and he never made contact. At one point, I asked him a question, and it caused my friend to “please stop being so rude.” He never once made eye contact or apologized. His appearance was one of someone who may very well been wearing the same clothes he had on the night before. Both my friend and I have been t this establishment many times, and this not the kind of person you want representing your company.
Food was alright, not the best.. Server was nice but it was my hubby’s b’day, & no offer for a cake cutting was given:( Outdoor seating is a joke for the
Loved our server! Drinks were good and desert was delicious.
We were greeted by a very nice hostess and brought to our table. Our waiter was probably the most bland and impersonal waiter we’ve ever had. No emotion, monotone, and seemed as if he didn’t want to wait on our table. The food was not the best...I ordered a medium burger but it was definitely more on the medium-well/well-done side.
Outstanding food and our server was wonderful!
When I made a 6:45 pm reservation I had no idea the restaurant closed at 8:00 pm. We were completely rushed through our meal. In addition, the menu is so limited, it’s almost not worth going out to eat if you’re expecting a good dining experience. I will continue to patronize to help keep restaurants in business, but next time I’ll probably do take-out.
Great staff. Great food at an affordable price. Highly recommend if in the area.
Great service and wonderful food. Nice atmosphere, too!
We made a reservation for 7:45pm. When we arrived our server told us that the kitchen closes in 15 minutes. I was not aware at the time of making the reservation that the restaurant closed at 8pm. The server was nice about it, but that is not a great experience to be rushed.
Considering the pandemic, it was a very pleasantly dining experience.
Very friendly staff, very attentive without being intrusive. We will return!
My hamburger bun was burned. Everything else was excellent
