Great service, delicious mesl

I forgot to request points for this visit. PLEASE APPLY MY 100 POINTS FOR THIS VISIT.
Service was poor. More a matter of untrained staff than not enough servers.
We had a great time and service was very good! Thank you.
Nice place, the food was delicious. I will definitely go back.
The chicken parmigiana was delicious. It matched any I have had at Italian restaurants.
The server was friendly, welcoming and efficient.
Joe’s is our neighborhood go-to restaurant. The food and service are always good and the prices are reasonable. Nothing fancy - just a reliably good place to eat.
Great restaurant, we thoroughly enjoyed everything. We come regularly and will continue!
Food was great! Service was great! Actually our server was too attentive. At our table to check on us and to talk to us too often.
A bit noisy the night we were there but good food and good value..
This place is great!!! Food was awesome. Service was awesome. Really enjoyed!!!
I'm a regular who enjoys the food, location, choices for Gluten Free and the care taken when preparing GF, service(though sometimes spotty normally very good), along with the overall value.
Great place for families with food choices to satisfy every type of picky eater.
Everything was yummy :) No wait with our reservation , definitely coming back
Fantastic service and accommodating staff. Thanks!
We hadn't been to the Watertown location in several years. Unfortunately, Waltham was completely booked for Mother's Day. It was a reminder of the inconsistency between locations. Portions were inconsistent across members of our party ordering the same entree and they were overcooked. Due to the seating arrangement it was very crowded with little space for servers and patrons to negotiate.
However, our server was amazing and extremely attentive. He went above and beyond and knew exactly what we needed before we asked.
The food was delicious and our server, Lauren, was very attentive.
A hidden pearl in Watertown. Great food and service, would recommend. Good job.
The food is good, but the menu changes can be a bummer and unpredictable. I don't think I'll be back until the menu changes again.
Always love the food and ambiance. Our waiter was overwhelmed with the amount of tables he had and we did not feel was able to give us top notch service.
Love Not Your Average Joe's! The hostess readily accommodated our seatng request, The jambalaya was delicious - full of chicken, shrimp, sausage, rice, and vegetables. It's a great dish to share and goes well with the amazing seasoned bread brought to the table. Don't forget to leave some room for dessert - the key lime pie in a raspberry sauce, topped with whipped cream, is exquisite. One of our favorite restaurants that never disappoints!
We enjoyed our food, beverages and service. We'd go back.
Amazing food - everyone loved the specials that are soon coming on the menu. Service by Chuck was professional and friendly. Bartender Tricia stopped by to say Hello. Just about as good as it gets!
The pizza was delicious as well as that bread and oil! Had a reservation and was taken to our booth immediately upon our arrival.
This is my favorite place.....open and cozy, different kinds of seating choices, great gluten free menu items!!
Came with a group to support the Boston Gay Men's Chorus (NYAJ will give 15% of your total check to the chorus if you mention the BGMC during the month of April). Service by Natalia was excellent (sorry we stayed so long!) and everyone was impressed with their meals. Will be back with another group next Tuesday. Looking forward to it!
Came for Easter dinner with my family. Could not have asked for better service, food, or an experience. Top notch!
The pizza maker had my son come up to the pizza bar to watch his pizza being made. So nice!
Service was very bad. Waited an interminable amount of time for everything including the opportunity to pay which took the server about 4 trips back and forth to the table before he got it right.
Truthfully, I was surprised at the quality of the food. My friend and I both had a super crunch salads with salmon added, and both the fish and the salad were delicious. Our waitress was great and even though we sat for a while after finishing our meal, we never felt rushed or pressured to leave. We'll definitely be back.
Excellent Food and even better service by Dane. Great night out supporting the Boston Gay Men's Chorus - come in anytime during the month of April and mention your are there to support the BGMC and 15% of your check total will be donated to the Chorus. Thanks to GM Sara and AGM Casey for doing this!
Great food, casual ambiance! The server was sometimes a little awkward, but he was a great guy, and we had a terrific meal.
very average food but good quality for the price. the major attraction is $1 oysters on Monday.
Look forward To meeting friends for Monday night apps,oysters,shrimp and our table with Chuck. Chuck is friendly and attentive and we look forward to a buck a shuck with Chuck
Food, drinks, service were fine. I had the Chicken Capresse, which tasted great but there was not enough food. 2 average size pieces of chicken and a salad with it. If a full vegetable portion or potato portion came with it, it would have been enough food. Overall, everyone enjoyed their food and our waiter was extremely accommodating.
Delicious as always. Seared tuna wontons are my fav but always inconsistent. Sometimes a little sauce. Sometimes a lot. Sometimes they offer to put on cucumbers. Sometimes not. And the kitchen needs better standards. No gloves worn by chefs who are CONSTANTLY eating with their hands and touching their face. So gross.
We had a wonderful time at our special meal.
We like to go to NYA Joe's on Friday nights when we can. I always have my favorite Pomegranate Martini. We both had the Haddock with different sides. Really delicious! We're regulars.
Very efficient service
