I have to say that I was a bit disappointed. The reviews I have read all led me to think this was going to be super meal. Although the food was not bad by any means, I was not impressed. The onion soup was tasty, but certainly not outstanding. And the cassoulet was served in a frying pan!! I personally... More

If you like French food and wine and being catered to, this is your place. Had a spectacular dinner on Saturday night. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. The cassoulet was particularly exquisite although everything from appetizer to dessert and after dinner drinks was perfect. Will definitely be back.

My friends and I were directed to this French restaurant by our hotel desk clerk. We had no idea that a real treat was in store for us. The welcome was warm and friendly. The food was absolutely outstanding!! And best of all, the prices were very fair. I had a salad and braised chicken livers that melted in your... More

I have written a review of this excellent restaurant on a previous occasion but really felt the need to reiterate our praise of this wonderful place. We are lucky that our granddaughter goes to Case Western University giving us many opportunities to visit L'Albatros. The food is fabulous and the service is first class. This restaurant gives us the European... More

It was neat and close to our rooms. French fare and it was good. Cozy and very busy even on a Monday evening, reservations might be wise.

We have eaten there a few times and they seem to be busier every time we go there. It is not a restaurant to miss when you are visiting the Art Museum, CWRU or the symphony. We like to go there for a late lunch or early dinner. The food is Americanize French but not the same as Bistros in... More

Came here for Happy Hour on a Saturday. Nice to find out that this place has Happy Hour (at the bar only) on weekends too. The bartender and the rest of the crew at the bar were attentive and friendly. The Happy Hour menu was very good with reduced prices for both drinks and food. We ordered the Charcuterie Plate...

This is our 3rd time at L'Albatros. The food is simply sublime! Quality / Price - excellent. The appetizers are quite heavy (for instance, the mushroom French Toast) could be an entree! The soups, salads - everything was great! The cheese plater - and fromagier, really ends the meal in a fun manner (she knew her cheeses!). The lack of... More

We always have dinner here when in town. The food is very good and the service professional. The atmosphere is cozy and some of the tables are quite close together.

What a wonderful place to spend a afternoon lunch with someone you love. We found that it was a wonderful decision to have our lunch on the back patio. Amazing food and be adventurous and order a cheese plate and of course wine.
