My Friend and I thought the food was excellent and you got a lot for what you paid for. We did not think the prices were too high for seafood or drinks. We thought they were pretty average Compared To everywhere else. She got seafood, Newburgh and a pop over which was very good and I got the Portuguese stew which was fantastic.

Pizza- onion and sausage- was undercooked and watery. I have had very good pizza here before but on this particular night the kitchen was not up to the task. Service was good but not overly attentive. Customers shouldn’t have to ask for utensils. I am hoping for better luck next time.

We enjoyed our recent dinner. The bread is really delicious as it it served with olive oil and lightly season with roasted garlic. The branzino was very good however the kitchen could do a better job deboning the fish. I had the Halibut very good however it was much too salty and had too much sauce that over powered the ravioli stuffed crabmeat. Our server Marissa was excellent, very attentive and checked in with us throughout the meal. The hostess was very welcoming as well. Overall a very nice experience.

I chose NYAJ because of my past great experiences there. I invited some friends to join me. We hadn’t seen each other in years and the hostess gave us the booth in the back of the room which was perfect! Todd, our server was friendly, helpful and very pleasant throughout our lunch. We were all very happy with our meals and plan to meet again in the fall at NYAJ in Nashua. Thanks for a wonderful visit!

We enjoyed a variety of summer wines and a few appetizers and salad at the bar. Our bartender was our server last time in the dining room and she remembered us! Great service, very knowledgeable and truly hospitable.

Our waitress was absolutely amazing. I wish I could remember her name. Now that it's been a couple days I've forgotten but she was great! I know she picked up the shift and she normally works weekends. We just had a very great conversation and it's because of her that I would say that I gave all fives.

Very casual, in a good way, and the food and service are always excellent. You can't get a better endorsement for seafood than seeing the Ispwich Shellfish truck parked in front making a delivery.
