    My tuna wontons are always the best. I liked my pineapple passion. My friend had a salad with chicken on it which came burnt. LJ took it back immediately and the next portion was still burnt but not as bad. She liked the salad and cut the burnt parts of the chicken away. Not up to your usual good meals. Key lime pie wonderful. Cheeseburger excellent. LJ was very nice but I think he had too many tables. I know it’s hard to get help. We are not complaining.

    Unfortunately the chef was a bit heavy handed with the red pepper flakes on the shrimp pizza - made it too spicy to easily eat. I picked off as many as I could. And the bartender must've forgotten to add any rum to my tropical drink. We won't be ordering any more mixed drinks there. Otherwise, the poke bowl was very good.

    It wasn't great. Our waitress basically took an order and brought a check. We were seated and waited what seemed like 10-15 minutes before the waitress came by to take drink orders. Never asked if we wanted bread. After getting our food she walked by and asked how everything was here and kept walking. She was past our table when we answered. She seemed preoccupied with the table next to us, who seemed to be complaining.

    NYAJ is down the street from my house so we go often. For a good while the service was horrible. This time, there was an improvement. However, they have SIGNIFICANTLY reduced their portions. I had a Caesar salad (lunch) that was more like a side salad. I have had their salads many times before. They claim it’s not the case but that’s not true. It’s a shame to see a place with so much potential and good location going down hill. I’ve had my last meal there. It’s a shame.

    My chicken caesar salad was delicious. It was loud, however. I think the televisions over the bar could have been a little quieter. We were at a booth, and it was cramped. With so many open tables, I think we might have been given a choice of booth or table. I was uncomfortable.

    NYAJ is improving at this location. Looks like there is a manager who actually is doing his/her job. It was good and consistent. It would be nice to see more changes in the menu from time to time. Gets a bit old.

    Table wasn’t set up (we had to ask). Service was ok - food was meh (more gristle than meat on the chicken breast). Very expensive for a very average meal…which was disappointing given that we were hosting international guests

    The food was overly salty- to the point where one dish was inedible (and comped by the manager). The pecans in the strawberry field salad were walnuts- which caused a reaction. Our server was distracted and never checked on us so we couldn’t remedy any of the food allergies Sue’s until it was time to pay. Overall a disappointing experience from a favorite place. The Waltham NYAJ delivered better every thing.

    I enjoy Joe’s usually but this trip was disappointing due to poor customer service. The Jambalaya was paltry and unattractive. I told the server and he sent “the manager” who didn’t seem to care. He sent over a separate plate with sliced sausage in barely cooked tomato sauce.

    The service was extrememly slow. Even with a reservation we had to wait, but understandable on Mother's Day, but hostess sat us in the worst possible table, right next to the servers and the kitchen. There were many other tables available!

    Bummed that no brunch option for Mother’s Day but, we forged ahead. Two of five meals came out either over cooked or wrong. Manager was super apologetic and took the meals on the bill. Good bread and lots of it. Meals were overall good.

    Service was really bad this visit. It took 15 minutes just for someone to come over and acknowledge us. So it took at least 20 minutes to just get water! Then the food wasn’t that great- I asked for my fries well done and they showed up greasy, soggy, and pale. I asked for new ones and they delivered delicious crisp fries. I asked for my burger well done and half of it was kind of rare, it didn’t make sense how it got cooked that way. Also, we were never offered bread and oil in the beginning!

    The shrimp and chicken poke bowl was excellent! I found that the teryaki salmon with mango fried rice was over-salted, and not as enjoyable as I had expected. As always, the focaccia bread was fantastic! However the dip would've benefited from more olive oil. The key lime pie was tasty, but the crust was overdone and hard to cut.
