Unassuming in appearance, tucked in away from the main streets and popular hangouts. But well worth a visit. The food is superb. I had the duck confit and highly recommend it. The meat was literally falling off the bone, the sauces subtle and delicious. Loved both the indoor and outdoor seating. Would definitely recommend a visit here.

I have been frequenting L'Albatros over the years and the mark of a great restaurant is consistency or improvement. L'Albatros continues to improve over time. Their Alsace inspired dishes and unusual wines continue to please. My favs include the chacuteries (the foie gras - ah - and I've had foie gras all over the globe), the skate, the steak frite....

L'Albatros is an excellent restaurant in the Case Western Reserve University district of Cleveland. This French restaurant has a large number of varied choices. Our party of 5 started out with a Charcuterie Platter with a number of sausages and meats and then an assorted cheese platter. The woman serving the cheese was well educated in the choices but the...

I dined here a couple of weeks ago and was extremely impressed. This is another of those top class restaurants that seem to be popping up all over Cleveland. The food, service and setting were all excellent. We enjoyed every aspect of the meal, each dish was exquisitely flavored. The creme caramel was the among best we've ever had and... More

We liked everything about this place! Really nice backyard patio, excellent service (from the helpful manager, to the attentive bus 'boys', to the waiter - all were A+ ) and the food was creative and really tasty (loved the terrine, escargot, and the mussels/frites). Would definitely come back!

We had dinner here on the patio on a beautiful August evening, and everything about it was outstanding. For the cheese plate, you get to make your own selections from 12 -14 choices, the dinners (cassoulet, salmon, croque monsieur) were excellent, and the service was fabulous. The patio was wonderful, and the prices are very reasonable. I would not hesitate... More

I was in town for a conference and this restaurant was recommended to me. It was within walking distance from our hotel. We had reservations and since it was so hot outside, we chose to sit inside. Unfortunately, we got forgotten about for over 15 minutes, since most people were sitting outside. We were getting ready to leave when the... More

From the outside it looks like a cottage but inside it's all modern. Lovely ambience, efficient service and the food was fantastic! I had the veal short rib with the mushroom risotto. Delicious!!!
