We had a haughty waiter ( not French just an attitude) in a loud and crowded older restaurant. Atmosphere fine, and this place reported to be one of the best. Pricey and not worth it. Wouldn't go there again. Had their trout and found it to be ok but greasy. I'll give them an A for presentation. Salads were above... More

I don't understand why this restaurant is so highly rated. Our allegedly French food was in fact not cooked a la Francaise. My Alsatian charcroute garni, for example, included no potatoes--unthinkable. My dark chocolate tart for desert was served right from the refrigerator, which killed whatever taste it might have had. Our server was both ignorant of the cuisine and... More

What a great place. Service was nice and restaurant is very nice. Best onion soup I have ever had. Nice little bits of lean shredded beef in the soup. Cassoulet was outstanding and great with a nice Pinot noir. Casual French country food but don't let the casual fool you. One of the very best I have dined at in... More

L'Albatros is a wonderful restaurant with a very creative menu. You'll find things here that you won't find elsewhere. What they do with sauces, in particular, is divine. I had the cassoulet which was scrumptious, but all of the entrees our party had were excellent. The setting is in a charming old home with one of the best patios in... More

L'Albatros is one of my "go-to" restaurants for any special occasion. For a couples night, request to sit in the room with the fireplace. The outdoor patio area is wonderful in the summer. The cheese selections should not be missed, nor should the French Toast starter (unless you have a mushroom allergy). The cocktail and wine lists are very good,... More

We recently had a nice dinner at the L'Albatros. We enjoyed braised veal ribs with an excellent bottle of Italian wine. The restaurant was very busy so we ate at the bar. The bar tender was attentive and explained the menu thoroughly to us. We were surprised to see the extensive wine list with selections from around the globe. We... More

My first time at L'Albatros was for happy hour on our way to Wade Oval Wednesday. It was the best Cosmo Martini I have ever had! We sat at the inside bar which was oh so perfect and friendly and prompt bartenders. The app's were outstanding. I will definitely return!
