We had no reservations, didn't know we needed them, our fault for not checking, who knew Springsteen was in town. A nice white-haired gentleman found us space at the bar, we were more than happy. This place was hopping, soft lighting created a nice vibe. Nick was the bartender, very cool guy that... read more

I try to get here around once a week. the pizza and blackened stringbeans are staples, but the menu changes so much with what is fresh and available, that you don't want to miss a week.

Another great meal at NWBB! Started with the BBQ pork belly with Kimchi which was decadent. Then had the trio of Brussels Sprouts. As always they were great. For an entree I had the deluxe cheeseburger, which was delicious. For dessert I had the cheesecake in a jar. So good! Ariel was a tremendous server. Knowledgable and funny! A great... More

Last night, we had another wonderful dinner at the New World Bistro. Food & service were fantastic. For the purpose of this review, I'll focus on the Purple Haze Shrimp appetizer. If you like spice with a flavor that jumps right out through the burn - this is for you! 3 large, moist shrimp in a spicy sauce with fruit... More

This restaurant serves dishes that purport to mix different spices and flavors to create unique presentations. Their success is occasional.

I've been to this restaurant with my husband several times and we always have a wonderful meal. It is one place where we can't turn down apps, meals, and dessert because it is all always so amazing. We had a delicious meal again and great service by Ariel. They are incredibly accommodating to food allergies- with many gluten free options-... More

I came out here for a birthday dinner on a weeknight, and was excited since I hadn't eaten here in over a year. Unfortunately, the meal made me wish I had selected another restaurant. It was bad, it just also wasn't great - with a few exceptions.The service was also just ok. We definitely did not receive a meal worth... More

We had a group of 11 who came for dinner during a conference. Every single dish was fantastic! The staff were friendly and attentive. I had the taco of the day- chorizo and roasted butternut squash with fresh cheese and cilantro and a tasty sauce. Absolutely delicious! Accompanied by a cup of the soup of the day, conch chowder.
