Spent a few days in Cleveland this month,visiting the Cleveland Clinic.on the last evening, my wife and I decided to grab a cab and leave the medical world behind for a few hours. L'Albatros is smack in the middle of Case Western, and seems a bit out of place, but inside is an excellent casual restaurant. A great way to... More

This was our first visit and we were definitely not disappointed! We were easily able to make a reservation online. This restaurant is located very near The Cleveland Botanical Garden , The Glidden House Hotel, and The Cleveland Museum of Art. The staff here was outstanding. I cannot remember another time or establishment in which we have experienced such great... More

This charming and maze-like restaurant is nestled in among frat-houses near Case Western University and, on a warm night, it seemed dark and a little close inside but when led outside into the garden, it reminded me of California. We were a large party, and the seating a little cramped but this was quickly recognized and remedied. The service was... More

We were in town for an Indians game and I was so excited since this place has excellent reviews.. I was sadly disappointed with the veal short rib, flavorless risotto, swimming in water-like broth.. It was absolutely disgusting and a waste of time and money! Next time I'll skip this place and go elsewhere!

We didn't have reservations but were able to just walk in and get a table. Menu was very interesting and unfortunately we ordered more than we could eat!. It was a very pleasant experience for two out of towners.

A celebrity chef in a tucked-away spot in the middle of the Case Western Reserve Univ campus area. If the weather is pleasant, try for a table on the patio — what a lovely spot for a delicious meal. The menu covers a range of tastes and appetites in more or less classic French bistro style. If you're here for... More

Had wanted to try this restaurant for quite some time. Decided on mid-week to avoid weekend crowds, since it is somewhat small. Upon being shown to our table, I noticed some lettuce on the floor. Yuk - I asked the hostess to be seated elsewhere. She had to have seen it, but didn't bother to pick it up. The French... More

Very well prepared food in a nice building, it was That Place on Bellflower. Classic French dishes with a nice modern touch. I will try anything, but for many squeamish friends trying pork belly or "Pied de Cochon" in another place will be impossible. Service is very nice. And they have gluten free bread. Also a family favorite.

I recently visited on a Monday night. We had a reservation and were promptly seated on the patio. The restaurant was surprisingly crowded for a Monday night, but the service was EXCELLENT. It was the best service I have had at a restaurant in years. Many servers circled around the patio filling water, wine, offering more bread, etc. The French... More
