Entree salad was very good. Pomegranate martini yummy. Tables well-spaced out and they take many precautions. Good midweek spot to meet friends.

We were seated and forgotten about. Our order for a pizza and a salad took 50 minutes. Pretty sure the order got lost until I asked. It wasn’t even busy. People that came I. Well after us got their food much faster. I had to ask for plates. Food was not worth the cost. Never going back

Westwood Not Your Joe's on this late Sunday afternoon pleasant overall. The outside patio was perfect for our party of 6, and a reunion with a cousin from another State. There were plenty of available seats inside or out, but we did choose outside due to Covid. The location off of 95 was very convenient as well.
The menu had a perfect variety for each of us to choose a sandwich, salad, or dinner. The salads: Waldorf and Caesar were made well and were tasty. The Club sandwiches and Lobster Rolls were delicious as well with great portions.
The only negative were a few bees that were quite bothersome to us while we were eating.

We’ll be back!

Food was very good, and is consistent.
Was pricier than it’s been before. I consider $24 a lot of money for a lunch Poke bowl.
When my friend asked for a substituted for the potatoes in her meal, she wanted a side salad and wasn’t k formed there would be an up charge. The manager did take that off the bill.

The menu has such great choices, there really is something for everyone. LJ was our waiter and he was wonderful and super attentive. We sat in a booth and the place was hopping with everyone smiling. Food and drinks were delicious, too. My daughter had the meatloaf, and I had the shrimp and chicken rice bowl. Portions were large enough to have another meal out of them. I had the Mule to drink and my daughter had the Sangria and a Peanut Butter Thing. We were celebrating her graduation from college and we were thrilled with our chose! Thank you!

Had reserved for outdoor seating (lunch) but when arrived was told that they weren’t using outside due to tables being wet(no rain in forecast). Since they had my contact info, feel that they should have notified me of this change.
Did eat indoors, and the food was delicious (I had the Mona Lisa salad which I loved, sorry to hear it’s going off the menu soon).
Service was a little slow; server didn’t ask if we wanted dessert/beverage, but did ask for coffee/tea, which then took a while to come to table. It wasn’t busy at this point so…

The food was good as always. The lunch service however was sub-par. The waitress really didn't want to be there. It did not appear to be a short-staffing problem. She just dumped a pile of menus on the table and left, then later dumped a pile of the wrong number of plates/silverware on the table, left for long periods of time, didn't bring any bread until our meals arrived, was not at all helpful when one diner asked for a simple swap (whole wheat bread instead of a bun, is that really not possible to do?).

We both got poke bowls, he got chicken and shrimp & I got the tuna. They were very good, except they forgot to put any avocado in mine, and I did not mention it to the waitress - I should have. :( Overall though, we enjoyed our meals, sitting outside.

We’ve come to this location many times and always enjoy the food. We actually have one closer to where we live but go out of our way to come to this one because it’s much nicer and we’ve always had great service. The food was delicious as always and the bread and oil is our favorite. However the service was subpar.
