Although the food is decent, they cannot get it together for take out. The order is inevitably wrong, not ready in arrival, and the worst—never given to the kitchen to prepare. I’ve actually stopped going here due to my high level of frustration. They are...More

Went here for a business lunch and it was great as always. Consistently good food. Wide range of choices and the 5 of us had a little of everything from steak tips to fish to soup & salad. Empty plates all around.

Out with colleges for lunch, this place is a good choice. The food are fresh and very tasty. The serving are quick - perfect for business lunch. The complimentary bread with garlic oil is a very good appetizer- almost addictive.

I've eaten here several times and the food has always been good. Stopped for lunch. Bread and dipping oil was good as usual; the rest of my meal was pretty bland. I had a special beer battered fish sandwich with fries and coleslaw. There didn't...More

We hadn't been to NYAJ for a while since our last visit was disappointing. We didn't write a review at the time because we sensed the restaurant was experiencing some problems...maybe staffing issues. To be fair, NYAJ compensated us for the poor offerings. But, that...More
