    The food was not bad, but it was not great I had the crabcakes that were listed as being lump meat, however they were not. There was a flavor in them that was indescribable, and made them not as desirable as I had imagined they would be. We also had the bang bang shrimp and the shrimp were a little over cooked. The cheesesteak eggrolls were delicious.

    They didn’t even ask about our special occasion! 4 things we ordered they didn’t have and didn’t know they were out of them for a while. They must have burned something before we came in because the place was a had and stench of burnt meat. Finally got our food and 2 of us had mustard crusted chicken which was totally burnt on the bottom and the string beans barely cooked and mashed potatoes cold and lumpy. Not planning on going back. What a waste of money🤬

    Had outdoor dinner with friends last night. This was about 6th time at this restaurant and by far a major drop in quality, service and value. We waited about 45 minutes for our order to arrive. My "salmon stir fry" bowl was smothered in a sweet sticky sauce that was covering everything. What was below was a pile of pre-cooked rice with an occasional pea. No other vegetables. No brown rice option. Would have sent back if not for being with friends. Taste was off and did not seem freshly prepared. Our water glasses sat dry and we had to flag someone to get a refill. Sad to say but I would not go back unless I ordered something safe like pizza.

    Booked spontaneously about 2 hours online beforehand wanting to go out with family for a quick, decent dinner at what had always been a good spot. Sorry to say that service and food quality were not what prices reflect. Wife asked for medium cooked sirloin and it came out like shoe leather, potatoes were decent. My Sheet pan nachos consisted of very little bland chicken, and seriously had barely any melted cheese on a monster plate of tortilla chips covered in shredded lettuce, no sour cream or guacamole, and a weak tasting aioli. Wife ordered cucumber watermelon margarita and received Watermelon Sangria. Waited replaced and tried to rectify food issues but didn't care to wait longer as we already had waited way too long while I had front row seat to food sitting in window and waitstaff checking phones in full view of my booth. Gotta do better folks, appreciate the efforts from front of house, kitchen needs attention badly.

    Our party ordered 3 appetizers to start. The portions were so large and filling we ordered our entrees and desserts to go. Our server was great. We took forever to order, but she was never rude, or impatient. She was professional and pleasant the entire time. When she realized we were celebrating a birthday, she comped my friend’s dessert. I enjoyed all the food, but I loved the cauliflower appetizer! I’m looking forward to dining at NYAJ again.

    We were not served bread like the other tables. Also, the server kept asking us about which salad we wanted in a way that made us think it was included in the meal but it was actually an extra charge. Asking us ceasar or chef’s instead of “ would you like an extra salad on the side” is quite deceptive. Also not sure why we did not get any bread when all the other tables around us got it even before they were served drinks.

    Such a disappointing experience. Service super slow and food was left on the pass for ages before eventually being brought to our table. Subsequently the food was cold and not very tasty. My daughter found a hair in her wrap. We waited so long for the check, and then to have someone process our payment, that we took our check to the front desk. They were unable to take payment and so we spent more time waiting for our server to arrive to take our credit card.

    Open Table wrote to me stating that I was a “no show”. However I checked in and told the hostess that I had a reservation. The food and service are always great! However the entrance to the restaurant upon opening the door is always dark and in need of repair.
