Our waiter Cesear was excellent. He went the extra mile to celebrated a birthday and made it a very special day.
My daughter and son-in-laws birthday celebration.
Service was really bad. It took over 25 minutes and another waiter to even order our drinks and appetizers. Our waiter was MIA most of the time. They only refilled our drinks (water and soda) once during the 2 hours and45 minutes we were there. The chicken and shrimp bowl was uneatable. It had too much REALLY salty sauce.
Love the Waldorf Salad - everything fresh and tasty and our server Caesar was cordial and efficient!
We had a great meal at NYAJ. The food was excellent as was the service.
The host (guy with beard) was terrible. I gave him my name, and he couldn’t find it, but eventually did and was so frustrated and gruff that his bad disposition became the topic of conversation with person I was having lunch with. Not a good way to start a meal.
The service was excellent and the food was good but our evening was ruined by the manager yelling at our server in front of us for seating us at the wrong table. Incredibly unprofessional and really made the rest of the evening uncomfortable for me.
We sat at the bar and our waiter wasn’t friendly and rude
We’ve never had such awful service before! We had to ask several times for drink refills, butter, more bread - it started to be a joke about “how long do you think I’ll have to wait for more water? Maybe I should have asked 10 minutes ago. ....” we love the food, but this night was a real disappointment.
Super good and wonderful service! Would definitely go back
Used to love this place but lately the food just isn’t that good. Service too slow. Have to ask for bread. Not horrible food, just not good like the first few years that it was open. There are enough restaurants in the area that we just won’t go back.
My friend and I had lunch here yesterday and the food was outstanding. I had the Everything But the Kitchen Sink Pizza and my friend had the Butternut Squash Flatbread. We shared the very delicious Key Lime Pie for dessert. I brought home the Chocolate Mousse Cake for my husband and it was OUTSTANDING ... not overly sweet and very yummy (he let me have a bite). The service was OK but the server was not at all friendly and we couldn't figure out what we had done wrong to make him act like that.
My parents were in town for a visit and I made reservations for us to have a nice family dinner at not your average Joe’s! Everyone was thrilled with their meals and we sat in it at a nice round table in the back where the noise was not too loud. My parents can’t wait to come back
The bread at Not Your Average Joe's is amazing and their butter-parmesean-oil dip is to die for! So it's not a bad way to start off your meal. The appetizers and food were good. There was a mix-up and they brought out the wrong meal, and it took a while to flag our server down but they brought the right entree quickly after we pointed out the problem. I ordered a cucumber mint spritzer, which was delicious! When they brought out another, I could tell immediately it was not going to be good. It looked nothing like the first drink and was so heavy on the lemon/lime juice is was too tart to drink and the lack of consistency was disappointing. But all in all, definitely someplace we will keep in our rotation. They've got a great variety of meals that will suit every mood.
Excellent service, pretty good bar food. Drinks were good and alcohol level in drinks was better than experienced in other happy hours. Love that reservations in the bar are is available online as most Has are first come first serve. Good ambiance and noise/music level is not to loud and conversation is possible.
We we went for the Sunday Brunch. The food selection had a lot of variety of tasty items. Our server was top notch..
Great. Only brunch buffet in Reston.
Our waiter Abvery H. - who we have served us in the past is great.
Great reception (big improvement ) and excellent friendly service. Food was great and beer selection as well.
Our first time here, and we're already planning when to again. So many delicious items, great service, wonderful experience!
Valentine’s Day dinner
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
Just very average no pun intended. Service wasn’t great.
Not Tour Average Joe’s is my go-to place for special occasions.
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.
Amazing selection for every diet and craving- great service
As the name implies, it was just average. Nothing particularly bad nothing particularly good just kind of average
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.
Love this place! The food is so good, and they’re so careful with food allergies too.
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.
Very tasty. Excellent waiter looking forward to returning
John our waiter was amazing. He took really good care of us and made the night special.
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!
Had 7:15 reservation, arrived at 7:00, was not seated until 7:40
Excellent food and service. They gave my friend a birthday card as we stated in my reservation it’s a birthday celebration. Thought that was a nice touch.
Convenient location and ability to have tables for larger parties is excellent. Service attentive and quick. I will use this restaurant again.
Excellent service and prices
