A friend and I met at the restaurant at 5:30pm on a Tuesday and we got the last table for 2 because they just had a cancellation. It's always best to make a reservation even if you are eating at 5:30 on a Tuesday!! Our server Daniel was great - he suggested a good beer to go with my delicious... More

I have been here several times for business dinners and love that they source local to the capital district as well as local to NYS. The menu is imaginative and changing and always fun and delicious.

We have been to New World Bistro many times over the past 5 years. The chef continues to provide a variety of interesting food choices. There are always gluten free and vegetarian options.

I frequent the Bistro several times a year. Each time the imaginative menu items, quality preparation and good taste remind me why I keep returning.

We went on a Sunday night and it was crowded so we waited 20 Minutes for a table. It took 15 minutes for the waitress to take our order, another 20 minutes for the appetizers to come, and 40 more minutes for the entrees to come. My seafood pasta soup had only half cooked pasta and my wifes' salmon had... More

Hard to get a seat here on a Saturday night, and I see why. Very nice ambiance, attentive staff (loved the bartenders). We had a couple of cocktails, excellent, and shared small place to make a dinner. Everything was tasty, some very special. Definitely worth the trip.

The atmosphere is upscale, yet not snobby. the weight staff is professional, yet relaxed. The food is delicious and some is locally grown. It is also next to the Spectrum movie theater which runs independent films which makes for a nice dinner and movie combo. If you're going to Spectrum after the dinner, skip the dessert at New World Bistro... More

The ambience is great, and the service is steadfast, but the food has slipped. It seems that complacency may have set in. Although the more expensive duck entrée was good, the skin should have been crisp and delicious, but was flabby. French fries (frites) lacked crispness, and the grilled red onion on the mushroom trio melt was a thick and... More
