It was Valentines, but I wasn’t celebrating it in particular. The restaurant was very busy. Noticeable delay in getting water, waitress got wine selection wrong, and the dessert menu provided was actually the kids menu

The food simply lacked flavor; the scallops may have been "simply grilled", but would have benefited from some seasoning, while the BBQ meatloaf had very little BBQ flavor

Our server was unprepared to take our order, had to be corrected while taking it and twice didn't look our way when serving the adjoining booth to either ask about dessert or to take the check and my card for payment. The manager stopped by to inquire about my wife's food allergies, but characterized scallops as shellfish rather than mollusks and also confused her order.

On the bright side, the focaccia bread and the pineapple cocktail were quite good.

Our waitress was pretty unprofessional, reaching across me to drop off a drink when she could have walked around the table and even reaching in from of me while I was taking a bite of food to clear a dirty plate. Our beverage refills were very neglected. I don’t think she came around to ask how our food was either now that I’m thinking about it. My boss’s veggie burger was soggy so much that she pulled the patty off the bun and just ate the bun and lettuce. Overall a disappointing visit, especially contrasted with our very pleasant visit a few months ago.

We had a reservation for 830 and we didn't leave until 1015!!! It took forever to get our food. We had to ask for bread and it was cold. Even getting the check was long.

We’ve been here several times and the service has been hit or miss. This past Sunday we took our family and friends there for brunch. It’s brunch...we didn’t require a lot as it was pretty much “serve yourself.” However, after we were seated, no one came by to greet our table or to take our drink orders. I had to go to the hostess desk to ask if we can be served. This should not have happened. Poor service and really didn’t even get an apology.

We had Cesar as our waiter and he was absolutely amazing. He made sure our drinks were full and our bread was replenished. Cesar was a very outgoing person and gave good pointers on what to order!

Service was exceptional. That is an understatement. The food was predictably fantastic and we were very taken care of. Family of 5 with 3 little boys. Definitely our favorite family spot in RTC, however, this location would also make for a great couples date night.

First time at "Not Your Average Joe´s" and very pleased with the variety and quality of the food. The server was very nice but a bit too busy to keep up with all his guests. The restaurant was quite noisy which - for us - was a bit too much (but might be great for younger customers). Overall very nice. We'll be back.

I got the special , rib stroganoff... it was tasteless... I only took 2 bites, cariiibean chicken was ordered as appetizers but also as 2 meals and some of the chicken was not cooked properly on the meal serving for one person, server was slow on refilling drinks and we had a long wait to get the bill to be paid... we had a reservation for 8 and we were still short on 2 silverware sets and 2 bread plates .. we got the silverware ourselves off another table and asked a different server for 2 more plates.. it was a birthday lunch so overall disappointing how it was food and service. The only part thoroughly enjoyed was the bread and oil dip

I just wish we were not sitting in the bar area as it was too noisy and we had not seen each other in a while. It was hard to talk.

As the name implies- Above average. Typical casual dining experience. They appear to have a crowd of young professional regulars who meet at the bar after work on Fridays, but it was still fine to bring my 6th grade daughter for her birthday for dinner in the dining room.

After not having visited NYAJ for about a year, my wife and I returned for lunch at the bar and half priced bottles of wine on Wednesday. The food was excellent with more healthy-choice dishes available than previously offered. The highlight of our visit however was bartender Rihanna who was polite, professional and attentive. She really "gets it" when it comes to hospitality. We'll definitely return in the near future.
