Every time I visit L'Albatros, I have a great time. I had the soft shell crabs and they were outstanding. A great wine selection, good martinis and friendly and efficient service.

Best rendition of mushroom ragout I have ever had--be it in France or elsewhere. The restaurant should bump up this appetizer in their menu list instead of near of the bottom as it is one of the tastiest dishesmy hubby and I have ever had in our entire lives---it was a Food Network's "Best Thing I Ever Ate" moment.

One should definitely plan on visiting this place in Cleveland. I liked the environment there. Food was delicious..little overpriced though we didn't care much since the services were of superb quality.

We had a lovely dinner. The service was attentive without being overbearing, the food was delicious and the outdoor patio is quite nice. The only downside was the music from a nearby pub that obviously couldn't be filtered out. The chocolate napoleon was mousse between several crispy layers - a nice new take on an old stand by. The tuna... More

Had a splendid evening on the back patio of L'Albatros with a group of friends. Live French music (and other tunes on request), fabulous mussels and pom frites, trout was melt in your mouth, as was an amazing selection of cheeses from the cheese board for dessert. Staff is friendly, knowledgable, and the wine selection on a warm summer evening... More

We had heard many great things about this establishment prior to going this evening-I definitely think it lived up to the hype. Food was some of the best we've had in Cleveland. I had the duck and my wife had the scallops-both were great. Their cheese and wine selection were also very nice. If I had to point out one... More

We had been to some of the previous restaurants at this location with out much success, but last night we were pleased with both the meal and the service. We dined on the patio and the service was superb.The whole evening the wait staff circulated among the patrons... More

Was taken to dinner here by a client. Food was delicious, beautifully presented and in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. My immediate thought was "When can I come back?"

I heard so many great things about L'Albatros that perhaps I was jaded by my high expectations - this restaurant definitely did not live up to the hype for me. We had dinner with friends on a Saturday night. The place was packed and it was quiet loud. Even with our small table, we had to shout to hear each... More
