“Just Your Average Joe's Is What The Restaurant Should Be Named”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

My husband and I have been trying out a lot of new restaurants in our area, so we decided to try NYAJ's last Friday night. Really disappointed. Service was excellent, however, food/drinks not so much. I ordered a Melon Ball cocktail, which evidently the bartended did not know how to make. We ordered the potsticker appetizer, which was fair tasting at best and slightly overcooked. As an entree, my husband ordered the pasta with clam sauce--he said it had no taste to it except for warm water. I ordered the chicken parm which was good the spaghetti squash that came with it was undercooked. We'll try NYAJs one more time, as we always give a restaurant a second chance when we've had a not so great experience, but I'm not real hopeful.

“Average is About Right”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

If you like Applebee's, Olive Garden's and those types of restaurants then you'll like this. They do have a pretty good selection of beers and wines. But the food is just OK. This was our second attempt and all agreed that it's a nice place with great, friendly and efficient staff but food is nothing special.

“The Area Needed Another Average Restaurant?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Woodbridge lacks thoroughly nice and well executed restaurants that provide the atmosphere and table fare that I believe all Woodbridge seek close to home. With Stonebridge opening its doors and doors of new restaurants, yet again we try another new restaurant. Yet again, NYAJ is just another 'average' restaurant among average and lesser restaurants. Mind you, the food was fine and the service was just as fine. What it lacks is the little over the top that we seek. If you're looking for a newer look, average food and great drink, this is your spot. Other than that spend a few more minutes in the vehicle and head North on 95 to Alexandria or DC. Again, NYAJ is not bad.

“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Only been there once since it opened a couple months ago. The food was really good and the server was very knowledgeable about the menu and pleasant. Can't wait to go back.
