It was a wonderful Birthday dinner.
Selected restaurant to meet with friends visiting from out of town. When I made reservations, forgot to ask for a booth, but they were amenable to moving us to one. Food and service were very good, but I had a hard time following conversations as the noise level was "energetic". All in all, eveyone enjoyed the visit.
Everything about this restaurant was fine. The noise level is quite high and was about the only complaint I could reasonably have.
Thought it would be more crowded for 7:00 pm on a Saturday night. The place was quiet, but the food was delicious and the service was great.
The food was great as was the food
The AC was too cold
A few times when I have gone in between rush times, the food was just fair. At this seating, my coconut shrimp was clearly over cooked. It was dark brown. Sure they offered to make me something else and took it off our bill, but it shouldn’t have been served in the first place. There were 7 of us- the first basket of bread was mostly hard and unappetizing. The second basket was great, but the first should not have been served. Everyone else loved their various bowls-but you need to watch out for the details.
I love the ambience and the service, and especially the gluten-free options.
Consistently good for a local chain. Get the lobster Caesar salad while you can
With our complicated allergies, this chain (and this location in particular) are really fantastic serving us safely. Thee food was yummy and our server was top notch.
As usual, NYAJ's didn't disappoint! We love coming here, especially with the kids. Michelangelo always is so awesome with them. Tonight after helping them make their own pizza, he came over to the table to check in on how it came out and gave them each their own dough to take home to make there.
I had the watermelon sangria and lobster roll; both delish! My husband had the quinoa stir fry with chicken and a moscow mule, which were just as tasty. And who doesn't love the fresh focaccia bread?!
Can't wait to go back for another great meal!
Great service, delicious mesl
As always great food and wonderful, friendly staff. NYAJ is one of our family favs !
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.
