This restaurant is one of the best I have every been to. The menu was very unique, with several tasty vegan choices. There was one vegan choice on the daily special menu. There were even two vegan dessert choices. It was a little pricey for a guy on a college budget, but considering the quality of the meal, I cannot... More

My family and I dined here while college touring. After reading the reviews and rankings, we decided to try New World Bistro Bar. The menu definitely had a variety of options that all were quite unique. The menu definitely made the restaurant memorable and different. We decided on the spicy green beans and dumplings which had nice flavors but were... More

We were visiting family and they took us to New World Bistro. Very unusual menu but there was something for everyone. The waitress had a good knowledge of the menu and offered some suggestions which were spot on. The flavors were amazing. My favorite was the Korean BBQ Pork Belly. There is a reason this is one of the top... More

In a world that's constantly changing, you can be sure of NWBB for consistent, delicious and creative dishes that will please your palate every time. The atmosphere is casual and the service excellent. Be sure to make a reservation and request a table away from the door. Don't miss the brussels sprout sampler or Ric's eggplant meatballs… YUM!

First time to this restaurant and the first thing that hits you is how the menu is totally different than 90% of other restaurants. There were four of us in our party and we tried a couple appetizers (smoked green beans and calamari). The flavor of each item jumps out at you. I had the salmon and it was the... More

Very varied menu, reading the menu first I thought it was too varied and wondered how the chef could do all these things well. I went with a group from work and we go a few different starters and shared. Aubergine (eggplant) “meat balls” were outstanding and unexpectedly meaty. The Brussel sprout sampler was fabulous and gave me some ideas... More

Every time I visit with friends or alone I have an excellent meal with fresh ingredients. Now that I'm no longer in the area I truly miss having this in my city. I like the vegetarian options and any of the meat dishes.

If you want to have a great night out in Albany, combine dinner at the New World Bistro Bar with a movie at the Spectrum. The New World Bistro Bar is the best restaurant I've found in Albany for a great combination of unique choices and reliably delicious food. It has selections across price ranges, from less expensive sandwiches to... More

arrived on a Friday night for dinner for 2, only had a 15 min wait. Dinner was great!! Service was prompt but not rushed. Pumpkin cream Brule was to die for.
