“One of Cleveland's best tables”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2015 NEW

Consistently great French food, served in a nice and cozy environment, excellent service and reasonable prices. Don't miss the cheese service - nothing like it in Cleveland. The patio is lovely in the summer.

“Wonderful place on campus.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2015 NEW

Ambiance is nice and casual, eclectic and comfortable. Service is top notch. The kitchen is busy but efficient. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu. I had a goat cheese and sun dried tart which was yummy. A fresh house salad with nice looking greens and a dressing that was slightly sweet with no tange and very nice. My main was the special of the day, pork loin with a ratatouille like side. The pork was moist and cut into medallions. The side was very tasty. I had the frozen lemon soufflé which was light, tasty and just the right portion size . A nice Riesling topped off the perfect meal and dining experience. Don't miss this gem.

“Great Evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2015 NEW

This is one of our favorite restaurants. If you go to any of Zach Bruell's restaurants you will have a wonderful dinner, comfortable atmosphere and excellent service.

“Excellent lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2015 NEW

We used a gift certificate for a weekday lunch. The restaurant was less than one quarter full when we arrived, but most tables were filled within fifteen minutes. The food was some of the best we have ever eaten. Our server was relaxed, helpful, and made good recommendations. This is an outstanding restaurant.

“A Brassserie not too far to go!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2015 NEW

This popular and well established restaurant restaurant in the
University Circle of Cleveland, by Case western Reserve University, is what you might expect for the usual, American French Bistro. The same dishes found everywhere (Onion Soup, Escargot, Steak Frittes). Although the service and execution are fine, it is not anything exciting or meritorious. If you want what you have probably had many times before, in almost any large American city, L'Albatros will not disappoint. If you want something different, go elsewhere.
