Our Server Tuana, was great. She was personable, efficient and checked on us appropriately.
The food is consistently good and reliable. The ambiance is great both inside as well as outside.
The food was beautifully prepared, and the portions were generous. Staff went out of their way to be friendly, helpful, and accommodating. We were extremely pleased with our experience, and will certainly return.
The food and service were very good!
Great casual dining and watching sports. Recommend it to friends
Sat out front, it was a great experience.
The food was good and served very warm. Our server was pleasant and helpful.
This was our first time at this restaurant and we would definitely go back.
While the staff are very friendly and attentive, the menu is lacking a bit for those looking for a vegetarian/vegan selection. Nothing is vegan w/o altering a menu item and selections seem to be quite high in salt and fat content (of course, that seems to be the norm for just about any dining establishment these days)
Great being outside. GF menu is outstanding
We have come many times to have lunch.
Great! Good food and wonderful service.
Not Your Average Joe's is a favorite of mine because of their non-gluten menu, which is both good and reasonable.
Was able to get a table outside because the weather was great. Service was excellent and the food was great. Overall well done.
The food is always great but the place stinks! They really need to get rid of that sewer smell. It's hard to enjoy your food when the restaurant smells like a manhole.
Vy is terrific and has been our favorite server since we’ve been going to NYAJ Bethesda. She is thoughtful, observant, kind and her service expedient. 5 stars!
A little short handed given Covid. Be patient and understanding. Service was excellent but food was just okay. Wife didn’t eat her entree (pizza) so they took off bill. It just isn’t the thing to order here. I had a chicken dish which was fine. Give them a try
Restaurant was about a quarter full but they bunched everybody up in one little section--there was zero distancing between tables. COVID is still very much around and this makes me uncomfortable. I'll probably pass unless we can eat outside or do take-out.
We enjoyed our dinner very much. Casual place with very good food. Our server was attentive and we received our food pretty quickly. Would definitely return for another visit.
Very nice waitress, absolutely clueless. Poor thing has had no training. This is a reflection of management. I had to get up to find her for another glass of wine.
Service, ambience, quality/flavor of food, wide variety, size of portions, cleanliness of entire restaurant, staff adherence to covid protocols while still being gracious, enthusiastic, and warm - all EXCELLENT. Due to covid restrictions our group has not been able to meet for over 1 year. You all made our 1st reunion perfect. Thank you! The BEST. Carol
Good service, good food. Safety protocols adhered to. Enjoyable dining experience
The last time I came to this location, it was a hopping happy hour place, albeit super crowded.
Today was meant to be a quiet lunch for clients who came in from out of town. The service was great and it was nice and quiet at the 11:30 am opening.
The restaurant was good enough to allow us to sit in an empty wing, even though that Inconvenienced our wonderful server. Thank you!
A nice casual restaurant with good food, service and ambience.
Top notch restaurant. Delicious food, Great staff. Very welcoming. I'm looking forward to going again soon.
food was great as well as the server. very attentive and recomended a great desert.
Menu changed… tuna in app/ salad not very fresh
Went for their lobster roll , one of my favorites.
Very disappointed. Ice crystals throughout the lobster.
Manager comped us items to make amends.
Staff was fantastic, especially the server. One of us is gluten free and the other vegan. There were ample options for both and the server was knowledgeable about both dietary restrictions and ready with recommendations.
The food was fantastic, the place clean and well decorated, and eating on the patio was lovely.
I will definitely return.
We had heard tat they restaurant was closed, but recently learned it had re-opened. Our waitress ( and the waiter who assisted ) were both very helpful. We enjoyed our food and beverages.
Gisele was a great server and the food was fabulous. We loved our Sangrias!
Enjoyed the chicken piccata and the service from Jason was excellent.
I have enjoyed dining at NYAJ's many times. The food and the service have been consistently excellent. The atmosphere is lively but not too loud or overwhelming. I plan to keep going back.
Food was very good, but service was slow and some items were forgotten probably because our waiter was also serivcing a large party.
We also thought the upcharge to change from chicken to salmon in the chicken salad was way too high. Most other restaurants we have eaten at charge far less to do this.
Great experience - the hostess accommodated our request for outside table and the need for an extra seat. The server saw that I didn't like my drink and substituted something else without having to be asked. She also supplied extra dipping sauce and salad dressing when requested. Great attitude, great service, great food. Took my leftovers over and enjoyed them all over again for dinner!
Pleasant and lots of good choices. Staff are very responsive and positive.
Service was excellent. Many are college student: friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable of menu,
A lovely lunch with an old friend whom I had not seen in years. We both enjoyed the ahi tuna salad. Very attentive server who was also very tolerant of us taking time to talk and catch up.
It took a little while for our waiter to greet us and bring us our drinks but all went well and the meal was pretty good.
There is always dirty plates on the table. We’re not cleaning them off the table when they were coming by, just kind of letting them stack up.
