Go firstly for the food, but the drinks can be exceptionally winning. When you arrive, you can immediately ask your wait person for your drink order to be served. Ask if they have a mixed drink “cocktail” special and the price. Any “by the glass” red or white wine from Argentina, Australia or Italy is sure to be a low... More

I really liked NYAJ in the past for the food, the friendliness of the staff and the entire atmosphere. Staff and atmosphere are still as expected, but I am disappointed to see the size of the meals going down while the prices are stable or even going up. Don't get me wrong, it's still very good but it's getting too... More

The recipes are from Massachusetts headquarters and are very tasty. they may have a lot of salt unless you specify. The pizza is excellent ... it has to be as Coal Fire Pizza across the parking lot is also great. The bar is too long so sit at the service end far from the windows if there is only one... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant recently as we were looking for something new and interesting to try. The food and service were great! They are very mindful of food allergies which is a plus. They serve yummy bread for the table and we got these Carribean inspired chicken fingers for an appetizer which was delicious! The chicken parm... More

Very surprised by our recent visit. Restaurant was well appointed and our lunch was wonderful. The butternut squash flatbread and nachos were very good. We all had the jambalaya for our entree and it was exceptional. Very flavorful lots of large shrimp, andouille sausage and chicken. It was perfectly spiced with a little bite to boot. The service was attentive... More

First, the Gingerbread Martini special for the Christmas season is fantastic and not to be missed. Tito's vodka, Bailey's, gingerbread syrup, and the rim covered in gingerbread cookie crumbs is indescribably yummy. And while you're there, stay for some delicious food. We had the herb crusted haddock with mashed cauliflower (see photo), the cranberry salmon with Brussels sprout and bacon... More

Went to dinner with another couple and restaurant was crowded, so we sat in comfy lounge chairs near entrance. The wait passed quickly and met a very friendly waitress who's waited on our friends mulitple times previously, so it felt as though we were being served at a friend's home. We received good food suggestions which our friends encouraged us... More

I have been there several times and each time I go, I think it's going to be better. The food and atmosphere are okay, but the service simply ruins my experience each and every time. I don't know why I keep going back...

We eat at NYAJ on a regular basis and we are always happy with their offerings and quality. We particularly like their fish and chicken dishes and their happy hour on the patio is always enjoyable.
