This is a go to restaurant for us whether eating out as a couple before a movie or eating out as a family. They always have delicious seasonal selections and a really great drink menu. The raspberry crush Mojito is awesome! The service is always good although sometimes it can be a bit slow but it's usually very busy. We... More

Made a reservation after receiving an email advertisement, offering reservations on Father's Day. We planned a late lunch followed by a movie and decided to make the reservation just to be sure no problems. We arrived and when I said that we had a reservation, the three female employees working at the front desk chuckled and one of them said... More

I love NYAJ for a nice dinner date or meeting friends for drinks. The customer service is always friendly and professional and if you don't like something it is quickly taken care of. The managers are readily available and can be seen helping out the servers. I recommend joining their email club which will afford you a free meal of... More

I was very happy with my first experience at a NYAJ. I had the haddock which was really fresh and the NYA salad which was great. They had some local brews which was a nice touch for a traveller. My server was friendly and efficient.

A visit to Joe's is always a pleasure. Food is made right there not out of a microwave bag. Flatbreds are awesome and the waitstaff attentive.

I eat at NYAJ's about once a month with family or with friends, for dinner or lunch. Never been disappointed! The food is very high quality, some of the best around, with lots of great choices, even for those avoiding meat. We love the half-price apps for happy hour. My kids have always been welcome here and treated nicely. Service... More

The food is above average and the service is usually great. It has a nice atmosphere, a little noisy during peak dining hours but is great during off peak hours. Very convenient if you are shopping at the loop but also a good location in general. If you eat there before you go to the AMC theater next door you... More
