While the food was pretty good, the service was odd. The hostess who stands behind the reservations podium looked up from her book with an expression of confusion and worry. Our table was near the bar and the area is extremely loud. The music, acoustics, and chatter make for an unpleasant atmosphere. When we asked to be moved, it was... More

My first visit a few months ago rather failed to impress, I am not sure why! This time we enjoyed good food in a comfy booth. Good drinks including their wine by the glass. Efficient friendly service Interesting varied menu. Decent value

Really great food and drink, excellent service. I enjoy it most when not overly crowded. We always order a ton of things to share as everything is so good!

Service and food were excellent!! We got to try new foods by sharing some of the appetizer plates!! When ingredients are fresh and foods have new and different seasonings it is such a pleasant experience!! I look forward to visiting again, and trying more offerings from the menu!

Best breakfast around! Try their breakfast bowl. Fun spot for before or after a movie at the Spectrum Theatre. Service is always good.

We stopped while traveling from NJ to VT, and encountered the most wonderful brunch. Photos show chicken and waffles with homemade Boursin and chipotle maple syrup and trio of hashes: clam, root vegetable, and corned beef with eggs and greens.

We were visiting Albany for one night after attending a lacrosse game at UAlbany. So of course I TA'd for a good restaurant for dinner. We tried it out based on reviews. There is ample parking behind the building. We were seated right away without any reservations on a Saturday night. Our server was attentive even though she had a... More

Many of my friends talk about the New World Bistro as their favorite place to gather. It has a lot of positive aspects: 1)cozy and inviting interior with lots of space; 2) good location on an active strip; 3) very unusual menu with lots of variety. I went with a small group of friends after a movie at the Spectrum... More

I absolutely love it here! It is must visit! The service and the food are both amazing. The decor and vibe here are great. I've only visited once, but I can't wait to go back. I ordered the blackened strignbeans as an appetizer to share. The portion was HUGE but more importantly, they were delicious. Slightly salty, spicy and crunchy... More

Always feel rushed here....food is varied but good. Service is good. Nothing relaxing nor a place to linger with a date or another couple. Try 333 Cafe or Albany Gastropub for a better experience and food. Will not return anytime soon.
