We love this place. They did a good job of socially distancing tables and avoided unnecessary contact. You have to scan a QR code for the menu, card only, and there a limited options. Everything was delicious. Only complaint was that we could see the manager motioning to our server to round up our tables to leave when they still had some time before close. Kind of rude considering we spent over $200 between two couples. Other than that it was great as usual.

Not many restaurants I return to, but this is one. Always a good selection, and I love that they have many gluten free options. Desserts are always amazing. I love the atmosphere.

Great food and service. The seasonal special—raviolis with squash and kale—was excellent.

I ordered sweet potato fries but received regular fries. Waitress apologized and offered to substitute them, however I declined the offer.

Had the Cranberry Terriyaki Salmon special. It was very salty. Also, the focaccia bread was salty and not fresh. I have dined previously and have to say the food and bread was quite disappointing.

Great food, great service, and lovely place. The only thing that would have made it better is some shading out on the patio. They have shading in some areas but out table was completely under the sun to the point that it hurt to touch the table and chairs. Otherwise lovely!

Had a nice dinner with friends. Our waitress did a good job and our orders were correct and very good. Nice that they are accommodating outdoor dining and had heater lamps. We just had to ask a couple times to have them turned in since it got quite chilly! Overall-good dining experience.

Service was excellent! Waiter was friendly and very attentive. I could not have asked for better service. I ordered the gnocci special. It was just okay. Very little chicken in it and while the pasta was seasoned, mainly by the bread crumbs, the chicken had no taste. The bread and dipping sauce were delicious. The patio seating was very nice and I will return but I would not order the gnocci again.

We had reservations to be seated on the patio. We brought our small 12 lb. Miniature Schnauzer that we had on the patio three weeks ago. We were asked to leave. No dogs allowed. After we left we were called and told we could bring our dog if it was kept by the outer railing. We go to this restaurant frequently and have seen dogs on their patio several time before.

In the past this was our go to but the last couple of visits have been disappointing. I get that COVID is still an issue but other places are handling it better. Service was horrible and it was not busy. Did not offer full menu.

Things have had to change during COVID. There were fewer people seated inside. Waitress & manager were very nice & accommodating. Menu was much smaller & I missed the coconut shrimp & butternut squash flatbread. Portions were smaller (bread & soup....which was $8 for a cup!) The special was Lobster Bisque....overly salted but pretty presentation. Barry's Clam Chowder was also too salty. His Cobb salad looked much smaller than what we have had in the past. The Joe Schmo "flat bread" was good but just a small, round pizza. Hoping that this restaurant can hang on & return to the original experience someday soon.

The manager Juan was VERY rude to me, openly DISCRIMINATED against me based on my health and religion bc I physically cannot wear a mask and I soley stayed outside away from any other people AND never got up from the table once following their discriminatory policy (I made a reservation for outside and explained how I was 100% in compliance with the VA EO, VA human rights act section 2.2 3900, and their own restaurant policy which I looked up before making res). I asked if he read any of those policies, state exec order, or understood he was violating the VAHRA, he refused to acknowledge my question and kept repeating “mam, it’s our policy, I don’t care”. After Juan made a scene, insulted me by placing a dirty mask not in a sealed hygienic wrapping, he finally stopped when I said I would hold it if I had to go to the restroom as my children were very hungry and we would have had a long wait anywhere else at that time, he backed away but never apologized or acknowledged the harassment and discrimination he inflicted on me nor the fact he was ignorant of the state, federal, and company discrimination policies which he violated all of them. Our waiter was incredibly great though and the rest of the experience once Juan left us alone was pleasant SOLEY because of our waiter. We tipped him 30% after he admitted he felt forced to put his health at risk being forced to wear a mask hours on end but that he did it bc his manager Juan explained they all had to or would be fired. Will never return to that restaurant.

We usually love their bread, but it was hard as rocks! And we sat outside but our table was right next to the door and my chair was banged into about 4 times. Not ideal. The chef did come out and present our dessert to us which was nice though.

NYAJs is one of our favorite local restaurants. Service is always good. Food and drinks are great. I highly recommend the apple cider Sangria.
