Always great at New World

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.

Went to New World Bristo with the hubby after a move at the Spectrum. We had brunch and it was awesome. Had Eggs Benedict with a vegetable hash and it was so delicious. I forgot what my husband ordered, but he loved his dish also. Looking forward to going back soon.

Have eaten here several times with groups from work and never had a bad meal. The menu always has unique combinations. Sometimes you question the tastes they combine in a dinner, but it always works and I have never had a bad meal. Spices can be heavy, you should look at the scale or ask for mild dinners if you...

I love New World Bistro. Not only does it accommodate those with gluten allergies, but the ambiance and service are great too. I always get the calimari, because it is crunchy and the sauce is spicy and delicious. The patio is great in the summer, if you are lucky to get a seat. It's pretty well packed each time I... More

First I have to say that the hostess and the water boy were very unfriendly and unimpressionable. Our waitress, Sara, though was very friendly and accommodating. We had the calamari and nachos for an appetizer, the calamari was underwhelming and was a tiny portion for the $12 it cost. The nachos were amazing and for once there were more toppings... More

I always like to give a balanced opinion of anyplace I dine, but keep in mind, I am a foodie, I know how to cook, I am price conscious, and know good restaurants and staff. I dined here yesterday evening for the first time. It was a date setting. We arrived slightly before 5 o'clock because we were going to... More

My wife and I originally fell in love with Ric Orlando's restaurants when we visited the 'Mothership,' New World Home Cooking in Saugerties, NY way back when. Since then, we've been hooked. We come here just about once a month and always swear to try something different before we end up getting the same things we always get. Luckily, the... More

We have been to New World many times over the years(gave it a great review in October, 2012) and have always liked it, so this meal to celebrate a graduation was a huge disappointment. It started when the hostess wanted us to sit at the worst table in the house(immediately adjacent to the service bar). This table is too cramped... More
