We've eaten at the New World Bistro Bar several times over the past couple of years and consistently had good food with a creative flair. On our first visit, we sat at the bar and enjoyed delicious appetizers and drinks. Our next two visits were to the dining room and again were happy to have more unique food. On those two visits service was a little spotty. On our last visit, December of 2012, the food and service were spot on. All of the food was wonderful; the duck, in particular, was perfect. Not only is the food excellent, but it's also locally sourced as much as possible, which is a big plus in our book. Don't go if your looking for run of the mill food. Do go if you like interesting, creative dishes.

I've eaten here a number of times over the last year, and enjoyed it every time. They have some very creative appetizers here, and good fine dining. Definately a worthwhile stop.

New World has one of the most interesting and eclectic menus in the region.
This is not a place to take a meatloaf and potatoes (I hate all things exotic) person however!

The menu is unique, fresh, exciting and delicious. The service is always very good and consistent and the food is always prepared beautifully. We have gone for dinner, brunch and their Mother's Day buffet and every single time the food and service has been wonderful.

This is a great date place, somewhat kid friendly if your kids are adventurous eaters and a terrific place to take out of towners.

Great brunch options - very creative and plentiful. Food is locally sourced as much as possible, which means it is fresh and tasty. The decor is nice - takes advantage of some natural elements. Easy on-street parking, at least on the weekends, and not overly crowded first thing in the morning. A wee bit pricey but worth it.

The menu here is a bit different from what you typically get at other places. You can eat healthy... or not - your choice. If you want something a little unusual, check out their menu online (they change it regularly) and then head on over.
