We eat at NWB at least once per month. We made a reservation and our table was still not ready after 20 minutes. The reason offered was " it is a small restaurant". Huh? Not acceptable. Very disappointing. Perhaps if this is the norm at certain hours an adjustment to booking tables should be made. There were four other tables... More

This is one of the absolute best restaurants in the Albany area. The food is very innovative; there will definitely be things on the menu with which you are unfamiliar! The ingredients are fresh, and sourced locally where possible. The service is top-notch. And the space is really fun. Let's start with the menu. The vast majority of items on... More

I've eaten twice here this summer but I live out of town. My first time was really quite good. Loved the food (their yellow curry shrimp on papardelle was excellent), bar was OK, noise level in dining room was unacceptable. Very distant staff and hard to get a hold of. The second time was not fun or great. Staff impossibly... More

My friends and I went to The New World Bistro for dinner. We wanted to taste lots of different dishes, so we ordered three appetizers, a small plate and a large plate and we shared everything. Every single one of the things we ordered was delicious......the salmon, the crab cakes, the appetizers were just amazing. Then we ordered one dessert... More

Beer, beer and more beer. Hundreds of varieties, live music, and nice atmosphere. A good place to meet up with friends and relax.

Went to NWB, 8/6/14. This has happened before....but 1st review. Took forever for waiter to arrive at our table, they just opened so it was not like they were busy. Took our order, didn't write anything down, forgot my soup. Sat out in the patio, flys were horrible. My wife had to ask for another wine and I was never... More

My boyfriend and I met his sister at this restaurant while we were in town visiting. It happened to be next door to the movie theater we were going to, so it was very convenient. When we walked in at 5:50, the place was packed and we didn't have a reservation. The hostess had only one open table, but had... More

The food was very very good. Something different to choose from than other restaurants. We also had a few good cocktails and if we didn't have plans that evening would of stayed for more. Definitely recommended.
