Went there on a Thursday night. Service was ok, menu is nice and different. Coming from a bigger city, I was expecting what we have gotten all over Albany...mediocre food. But it was surprisingly good!

When someone at our hotel recommended this place, we looked at the menu and thought we saw a place that was trying just a bit too hard to be cool, or whatever the hipsters say these days. We ended up here on a Monday night because no where else that wasn't an Applebee's was open (Albany seems to shut down... More

Wonderful good, great service. Menus change seasonally. We loved the kale salad & curry bowls. The atmosphere is lovely.

This place is amazing. We have gone on several occasions now and never had a bad meal. I always try something different, where as my fiancee always gets the stuffed meatloaf (it is his favorite!). I have had the steak, salmon sandwich, salmon over greens as well as several different specials which are always fresh and prepared to perfection. Whenever... More

This is about the fifth time we have come to this place and we really have fallen in love with the atmosphere and food here. We have yet to have a bad meal. I always shoot for my favorite -- the meatloaf and my other half usually tries something new, this time the steak! It was delicious all around. One... More

Inviting atmosphere, varied menu, we always find something new to try. Menu changes seasonally. My son always gets the jerk chicken, as spicy as they can make it! Make a reservation. Great for dinner and a movie (Spectrum Theater)!

Our second visit to this trendy restaurant but we could not help feeling the food was just pedestrian. I do not mean it is not good quality food by no means but it is just not subtle in any way. It was as in your face as a trendy in wanna be Manhattan restaurant. A great place to go with... More

The food here is always fresh and there are always new and interesting choices on the menu. Good wine selection and attentive wait staff. Good place for small groups or intimate dinner.

We were looking forward to New World Bistro Bar after so many good Trip Advisor reviews and local referrals. We found our dinner just average. The rolls were served with no butter and our meat loaf was just ok. Maybe we just ordered the wrong dinner item for us. The portion sizes, however, are huge. We will give it another... More
