“Almost a five star! One of the best in Cleveland!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

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 "coziness" is what prevents me from giving it a five star, and our waiter this time aroun (trying to speak with a French accent ... hum, we are French...please stick to English, otherwise it becomes insulting?!?) - other then that, great restaurant!!! Appetizers ($ 7.00 to $ 13.00, entrees around $ 15 to $23.00), quite reasonable for the quality/variety of food you have at l'Albatros! Great Wine card as well!

“Consistently excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

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.

“A Summer afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

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.

“Worth trying”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

We had a good experience there. French food a bit heavy for me but it was not too bad. I would go back when I have a chance.

“Either amazing or good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Everything we've had here has been good - a few things have been amazing. Their cocktails are excellent and they often make me a great lemonade martini that is only on their summer menu. The french toast appetizer is incredible. It's a romantic place to go for dinner. Service has always been outstanding.
