This place is such a hit or miss that I am ready to give up. The chain started out very strong and has some good ideas and some delicious dishes but the they just can't execute them the same way every the time. I have had great service here and really poor service.

Even minor changes or special requests seem hard for them to manage on one visit and are happily accommodated the next. I hope that they will put some time into training their people better and work on upgrading the kitchen standards a bit because I beleive they can do better.

Pros: Some good dishes, able to seat a crowd

Cons: Inconsistent food & service

Love this place. The burgers are amazing and the olive oil dip is pretty spectacular too. The waitstaff was helpful as well.

Great restaurant, good atmosphere. The food was really good and there was parking right behind the building. The Lexington rail trail passes right behind it also, so hop off your bike and grab a bite to eat.

As someone with a gluten sensitivity I greatly appreciate that NYAJ's has a gluten free menu. I had a wonderful salad. I will admit it was oh so tempting to have one of the rolls brought to the table for the other people in my party! The service was decent, portions sizes decent, and the price wasn't bad.

I love this place! The service is always great! I look forward to their bread and delicious dipping oil that they serve. We like to bring friends and family here when they come to visit, because we know we can always expect a good meal. Their rasberry mojitos are yummy, too!

Great food mostly the pizza!!
they have the best bread with dipping oil that I have ever had.
The only problem was it took seversal minutes at the Arlington location for some one to come and seat us we were waiting a while and had to track someone down but it was worth the wait hoping that was a one time thing, I have had great service at several of their other locations.

Pros: Great Food, Great Drinks from Bar

Went to this location for the first time a few weeks ago, and the service did almost everything possible to drive us away:

1. They had no trace my friend's reservation, even though she'd called twice to confirm.

2. One person was about to seat us at an open table, but was overruled by the person running the floor, who gave the table to someone whose reservation they hadn't managed to lose.

3. Our waitress dawdled, mixed up orders (what's hard to understand about "no bacon, please"?), and did her level best to ignore us.

If we hadn't had a large group meeting us, we would've left to find a restaurant with service closer to average.

Editorial from

The Scene
Each Joe's location handles a steady flow of hungry families and casual couples tired of national chains' bland cuisine and soulless atmospheres. While most nights bring standing-room crowds, waiting for a table can be…
