We had it all...wine, charcuterie, salads, entrees (the best), and shared dessert. I have never had anything go wrong here. My friend, from Colorado, said it felt like France...very unhurried and delicious.

Two recent business meetings were just held at this restaurant within the past two months. In both cases, the service was excellent, food very tasty. Portion sizes were quite ample. Favorite appetizers were the french toast (this name does not due justice to this wild mushroom tasty treat) and the charcuterie platter. The consensus for 'standouts' of entrees seemed to... More

L'Albatros and its predecessor, "That Place" have been one of our favorite "Special Places" for over 30 years. The patio is quiet and charming. The food very good. The service excellent. Whether it is for a power lunch or a relaxing dinner with the spouse, L'Albatros is always one of the first choices.

The veal short rib was delicious, and the crème caramel divine enough, but if you're going to be all français with the brasserie thing, you've got to get the words correct. Fried apples might wonderfully accompany the norman mussels, say with a Calvados broth for the moules marinières, but pommes aren't pommes de terre. The delightful staff at the bar... More

I had the scallops and they were excellent! I loved every bite. I asked for them to be done a little different than the way the were on the menu. The French Onion soup I was ordering a cup and our server told me to get a bowl so I did I was disappointed. My own is a lot better.... More

Took my wife for her birthday. Service was exceptional! Food, just OK. Escargo not good at all. I think this is something a French restaurant should prepare flawlessly.

We went here last night for my boyfriend's birthday so we already knew we were going to splurge a little. We went to the Velvet Tango Room beforehand, so we knew a bottle of wine would be too much for a Wednesday evening for two west side residents. Our server overheard us deliberating on a bottle or a glass and... More

Between the impeccably doting service and the exquisite food this has earned the elite spot in my book as my favorite restaurant in Cleveland. If you can manage, save room for the cheese board, you will thank yourself for doing so.

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
