In the last couple of years, I've dined here 4 times with relatives who live in the area and who've enjoyed their experiences here since its opening. After my most recent visit here last week, I feel compelled to say that I just don't get what all the fuss & great buzz is about! The front dining area is very... More

Four of us went out to dinner. The meal was perfectly prepared and served. We all enjoyed our entrees. It was a busy night but the service was up to it.

We went with another couple on a Monday night. I'd recommend getting reservations because it was packed. Our waiter was phenomenal! He was very knowledgeable and attentive. I like that their menu is always evolving and current. They focus on serving what's in season and your food is cooked right when you order it. We had to wait a while... More

I enjoyed my dinner at New World Bistro Bar. Service was SLOW our waiter and bus boy were friendly but the women who served our food had a puss on her face presented the food poorly and left the table. This as you can tell left a negative feeling. Servers of the food should do so in a friendly manner,... More

We ordered four small plates for the two of us which gave us an opportunity to sample several things off the menu. All of the dishes were very creative and incredibly tasty. My favorite had to be the guacamole which was spicy and Harry unique blend of pineapple and chili peppers. Another favorite were the carnitas, which was incredibly spicy... More

Excellent food. Able to serve something for all diets. Our server was very friendly and well versed in both their food and drinks. We try to stop there whenever we're passing through.

I've been to Albany twice. The first time was several years ago and it seemed like there was a serious dearth of restaurants selling exceptional food. That is no longer true. I was in town overnight on business and a colleague found NWBB through an online search. The menu seemed really interesting - they take the flavors and they dished... More

Went here based on Tripadvisor.com reviews and was not dissapointed. I ordered the New World jerk Classic dinner with an oriental twist using soy sauce as part of the marinade. I can tell you that I've had plenty of great Jamaican jerk chicken dinners in both the US and Canada but nothing like I ate this night. The emat was... More

Late night nash! Everything was closed around the hotel. My son did a quick search and found this gem. A quaint restaurant in an up and coming neighbourhood? The decor is simple with exposed beams and brick. The menu was amazing...we had a difficult time to decide. BTW, their choices on the Gluten Free Menu are fantastic! White wine Sangria...excellent!... More

Their menu has plenty of great food choices which are a step above what we typically encounter in our hometown. My husband's salmon dinner was one of the best he's had; my dinner special (bluefish) was very good - the fish was good but made better atop the sauces and the vegetables. I loved the carrot & ginger soup w/... More
