I like the energy here. His menu is very international. Unfortunately, my Indonesian beef dish was tough and the tacos nothing special. I would consider this place one more time trying something more main stream

Be sure to book in advance because the place was packed on a winter Friday. Eclectic international menu, lots of fish and other non-meat options. We liked what we ordered. Service was a bit scarce, not helped by the many nooks and crannies in the...interesting space. Owners might rethink the big blank storefront they present on Main Street, it’s quite off-putting and we almost went elsewhere. Glad we stayed.More

WOW! Sometimes the server makes the experience perfect and it was. Our food was amazing and I am sorry I forgot our server's name. He worked the entire place - he was friendly, professional and right on! The menu is really cool. There are many...dishes from which to choose. I had lamb and my husband had a beef dish. Both were wonderful. Thanks for a nice evening and perfect dining experience.More

Great selection of international choice including various Asian styles, Jamaican, and many others. The Quality of both dishes ordered in my party was excellent. Also a good local beer selection.

Eclectic and diverse menu, dishes with lots of international flavors and ingredients -- French, Jamaican, Indian, etc. Well-prepared, good presentations, no gimmicks, just good food done well. Dining room and bar, decor hodge-podge but well-arrayed and fun to look at. Wines by the glass limited...but okay. Some locals, some tourists on the night we dined. Waitress friendly, easy-going but professional. Prices just right.More

I stumbled upon this restaurant by chance on my way through Cooperstown. It has a cozy warm atmosphere and very friendly staff. There were so many different and innovative items on the menu and what I ordered was fantastic. What was going to be a...quick bite turned into a relaxing afternoon meal.More

Ordered fajitas- good flavor but cold black beans and white rice not appetizing. Luke warm meat, cold tortillas. Shishito peppers undercooked.

The first place my wife and went for dinner on a long weekend in Cooperstown...and it was the best place we ate at the whole weekend! Eclectic menu with lots of variety. We're told it changes regularly...which we'd love if it's true. We had appetizers,...entrees, desserts, and specialty drinks...all were delicious. Service was phenomenal and ambiance was pleasant. If we had to find something to critique, it was pretty dark in there. I had to pull out my phone to use the light to read the menu. Otherwise, it was a pleasant dinner and we'd go here regularly if we lived in the area! The locals we talked to seemed to not know too much about it, including the front desk staff members at our hotel less than 100 yards away. Too bad for the restaurant...but an opportunity for them to get their message out to the community!More

I felt fortunate on my first trip to Cooperstown, NY to have found Alex’s World Bistro. It is located on Main Street, down a little alley, and has a nice bohemian vibe, and is cozy and warm. The menu offers cuisine from Vietnam, Thailand and...India. I opted for the lamb lollipops...it was a generous serving, with 5 chops, excellently spiced, with fresh mint chiffonade, and lovely sauce. It came with a side of rice. At $16, it was a remarkable bargain. I wanted a little desert at the end, and the $3 steamed Thai coconut pudding was perfect...not too sweet and very flavorful. Service was friendly and efficient. I will definitely return...have my eye on the Thai red and green curries!More

As a local, Alex's is one of favorite restaurants in Cooperstown. My other is Mel's. I have never had a bad meal at Alex's in the dozen or so times I have been there. My absolute favorite is the Fingerling potatoes for sharing. I almost...always choose the pork belly steam buns, they are incredible! My husband loves the Cuban sandwich. My friends enjoy the brussel sprouts, tacos, and salads. The fish and chips look fabulous, I'm looking forward to trying them someday. We tried the tres leches cake for dessert recently and it was delicious. The atmosphere is cozy and the service, although sometimes slow, has always been decent. The best waiter we have ever had was Jake! He made our most recent experience the best yet! If you're looking for good food and drinks, I highly recommend Alex's!More
