    As always, our experience at NYAJ Westwood was excellent! My friend and I meet there for lunch every two or three months and we are always given a great table and are given the opportunity to talk with service being very unobtrusive. Sarah O was great as our server. We will be back soon.

    My wife has food allergies and we have an allergy card that we give the server to bring to the kitchen. Despite the details regarding her food allergies, they still get her order correctly. Once again her food was not correct and she had me start eating so my food wouldn't get cold while they remade her food again. Even on the 2nd try they left something off that should could eat and had to go back and get the sauce that was missing. This happens every time we go to NYAJ's in Westwood.

    Bread and drinks are always delicious. I ordered the seafood risotto special for my entree and was disappointed as it was very salty(and I like my food salty). I was unable to eat most of it and didn’t enjoy it. For $32, kind of a bummer. My husband enjoyed his entree. We ordered the peanut butter thing for dessert and it was good, but didn’t come with the chocolate and caramel sauce on the side to dip into like it used too. Overall we still enjoyed our experience

    The service and food were excellent! If possible, I do recommend making a reservation if you'd like to avoid a wait as its usually pretty busy due to its location. (But not always). The cheesesteak eggrolls are fantastic, and so are the bang bang shrimp and ahi tuna nachos. Yum!

    I reserved on Open Table, but ended up sitting at the bar. My friend arrived earlier and grabbed two seats at the bar. The host was pleased as the place was hopping and there was a line of folks waiting for seats. I like NYAJ because as a gluten sensitive person the menus has so many options and the chef works the dish to be gluten free. The mixed drinks are always great too. The bar tender was great and had an excellent knowledge of the menu so her advice was accurate for our palettes. My favorite location is Westwood the folks are always nice, ample parking, right off 2 major highways and the restaurant is large.

    We continue to visit Joe's at several locations and the food is always very good. The requested booth was very nice and we were in a quieter area which was nice as well. The food order seemed to take longer than usual but we enjoyed the nicely provided bread and dipping sauce. We had a very nice family visit and then were ready to leave. Check came we put out credit cards and waited....and waited. we finally had to get the manager to take out cards for the check. Okay we visited longer so it was all fine but service is usually not slow like this.

    Place was clean and quiet at 5:00 pm. Two greeters corralled the five of us to our table and we were promptly served with drinks, which I think is a big plus, and a big minus when there is a failure to do so. Food was good not great, but certainly good for a chain restaurant. Fairly priced.

    I love Not Your Average Joe's in Westwood. I live and work about 20 minutes away and it is the perfect place for a business lunch or dinner meeting. It's a decent sit-down restaurant but with quick service and a range of items. Not too expensive. The food has been consistently good. I have gone many times for work and brought my family for dinner on several occasions as well. Yesterday I got the Spicy Cauliflower Bites as an appetizer and the Ahi Tuna Poke Bowl for the meal, both were excellent.

    Our waitperson, Maile, was great. She was friendly and attentive with knowledge of the offerings and a good pace to the meal. The bread with oil mix was superb, as always. Nice selection of good beer. I had the burger with a side salad. The burger was cooked to order, flavourful and substantial with a proper portion of condiments. The salad was greens with side dressing and fit the bill. My partner had the jambalaya which has changed, since last we had it, and was very good, just the same. Overall, very happy and will look forward to going again.
