    This was a first visit to Not Your Average Joe's for my family. We sat immediately with our reservation and were given bread with THE BEST garlic olive oil dip. If you could purchase this I would have. We ordered drinks and my husband enjoyed his cocktail but my drink was dissapointing. I ordered a pomegranate fizz which was about 3 sips of drink and a glass filled with ice. If I had to guess they did not have enough pomegranate juice or oj to make the drink. I ordered something else for my next drink to actually get something to drink. We were all given waters which is nice. My meal was a impossible caprese burger. I appreciate that this vegetarian dish had more pizazz than regular burger and it was cooked perfectly. They are often overcooked at other restaurants. However my fries were cold and chewy which indicated to me that they were not fresh. My daughter said her mac and cheese was also cold. We also had to ask for salt and pepper, much easier if it's on the table already but this may have been a covid change. Our waitress was very nice and attentive and made no mistakes.

    We had to wait 20 minutes for a table, despite having a reservation. Service was spotty. Complimentary focaccia bread and oil came late, just minutes before the entrees. We were seated at the furthest and darkest corner of the restaurant. Not a great experience, and we will be looking elsewhere for our next family dinner.

    I had the Penne Voka. The chicken was dry and mostly every piece had grizzly fat. I said something to the waiter but he ignored me. Will never go back.

    NYAJ is usually a personal favorite, but after tonight’s experience it probably won’t be my go to place anymore. We had to ask for our utensils and bread, which came when our entrees arrived. The cheesesteak egg roll appetizer was poorly plated and not even warm. The bread is usually fresh out of the oven, but ours was served cold, hard, and stale. When I had asked for a new bread basket, the waitress rolled her eyes as she walked away. The super crunch salad is my absolute favorite and I always get it with grilled shrimp instead of chicken. The shrimp was cold and had the consistency of rubber. If I had to guess, the shrimp was old and sitting there. I’ve never had this type of experience at NYAJ. It wasn’t even crowded when we arrived for our early dinner. I’m a bit disappointed after today’s meal.

    Sat at the bar, server Bree was very attentive, and with my buddy, was very patient and accommodating, he is a little needy, but polite, and she handled him well. Nachos were so large I couldn't eat an entree. Will definitely go back

    We were early on time, seated immediately. Friendly hosts and waitstaff. We had slower than usual food arrivals. Maybe they were short staffed in the kitchen? Overall great atmosphere, good acoustics and look forward to coming back in the future.

    Pleasant place, sat in a high top between the bar and dinning area. Multiple TV's at the bar. Food selection was surprisingly interesting (a few twists on traditional dishes). Was disappointed that the soup request was missed then came out with my order. (We were comp for it after asking about it) I would return for the food.

    Celebrating by cousin’s 65 Bday. Hostess was horrible. We arrived on time, but my reserved table was not available for over an hour. No alternatives were offered, although restaurant was not full. We ended up eating at the bar. High top table behind us had 2 guests in the booth side, with 2 tables in front of them with empty seats. A lot of other large parties with tables pushed together. Looked like open seating area. Guess hostess on duty never looked at the Open table Reservations! Would not book there with Open Table again, because reservation was not honored. That restaurant shouldn’t take reservations, if the seating is at the whim of the hostess. I was terribly embarrassed in front of my dining guest. First time this happened with Open Table.
