Cute neighborhood restaurant with really good food and service.

I was in Albany on business and my colleague took me here based on her recent experiences. Service was very good, food was delicious. I had wings - just plain was good, didn't even need sauce, and the deviled Feather Ridge eggs. Everything was really good. I'll be sure to go back next time I'm up... read more

Had dinner here with a large group. The staff was friendly, accommodating and patient. The menu featured local ingredients with some combinations that were usual but still appealing and delicious. Although I wouldn't bring my kids (they aren't that open minded about vegatables) I would definitely choose to return with adults. Even those who aren't overly adventurous could find something...

There are only a few restaurants in Albany that I visit with some regularity, but this is sure one of them! It feels like a real bistro as soon as you step inside - more akin to a NYC restaurant than one in Albany. Their food ranges from sandwiches and flatbreads to oysters and handmade pasta. My absolute favorite entrée... More

Perfect Albany evening- dinner at New Wold Bistro, dessert and a movie at the Spectrum. Service at NWB can be timed to get you out on time for your movie, or languid enough for a lovely meal with friends. The food is consistently good and interesting but not precious. They aspire to be a place for foodies and usually succeed.... More

I've been here a number of times and each time the food and service has been outstanding. The style of cooking might be described as "fusion"-ish, but not over the top. Inventive, but doesn't try too hard. The menu changes seasonally, but I'm partial to some of the standards - Ropa Vieja, Jerk Chicken, and Thai Curry Bolognese. This is... More

Simply amazing. From the food to the staff, this place is unbelievably good. A delightful combination of healthy ingredients make these mouth-watering dishes one-of-a-kind. Calling these dishes imaginative would be a understatement. Portions are generous (with a focus on quality over quantity). The "Class Jerk Chicken Dinner" (honorably spicy) was absolutely perfect. Greeted by friendly, down-to-earth staff who were on... More

As a regular at the Albany standard, the staff is always friendly, very knowledgeable, and there when you need them. The eggplant meatballs are incredible, the best burger I have ever had, steaks are grilled to perfection

This is my favorite restaurant hands down with a varied and changing menu, including began if that's your thing. A funky atmosphere with excellent cocktails to boot. I would, however, only give their wine list a 3-4. You definitely need to get a reservation though.
