It doesn't get much better than a 'Zack B' owned restaurant especially L'Albatros. Lunch or dinner it's all the same. Excellent. Today because it's mid summer and hot we had the Braised Leeks and the Radish & Cucumber Salad with Creme Fraiche. Both served cold and very refreshing. To follow we split the fantastic mussels and frites with aioli. Absolutely... More

The service here is very attentive. We tried the French Toast with mushroom as a starter and it was very good. Next was the Frisee salad with Lardons. which was huge and spot on. I finished with the trout main dish and couldn't have been more pleased. The ambiance is that of an old house with nice newer artwork and... More

This restaurant is always buzzing and in my experience you need to book to get a table here. Its difficult to choose from the menu because everything sounds and tastes great. Good wine list.

I've been here several times over the years, and have had generally positive experiences. This said it's my least favorite of Zack Bruell restaurants due the menu. While the vibe and ambiance are great, I think the menu is a bit fussy and it's getting tired. Little has changed over many years. On the particular New Years Eve, the service... More

One of Zack Bruell best restaurants. It has a charming secluded location right next to the multiple attractions of unversity circle, the hospitals and Case Western Reserve University campus. Outdoor enclosed courtyard is a real draw in the summer. Best outdoor dinning we have experienced in Cleveland. The menu is traditional French bistro fare with a few more local offerings... More

Love this place! The atmosphere is great with a few different dining areas as well as a large patio. The service is the best and the servers always know all about the food on the menu and you can request a change if you prefer

L'Albatros is a must do anytime I'm near Cleveland, Ohio. The food is consistently amazing, the wine list is extensive and well-chosen, and the atmosphere is cozy, intimate, and comfortable. I've always had excellent service, and the patio is lovely during the summer months. They often have a interesting array of house-crafted cocktails that I haven't found anywhere else.

I decided to have lunch close to my hotel and when I found TripAdvisor #2 ranking restaurant in walking distance, I was very happy! But the food was not as I expected. The people were friendly and the service was good, of course.

My wife and I went to L'Albatros for dinner. We arrived early and enjoyed a drink at the bar. We were seated and had a fantastic dinner. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. We have and would recommend to our friends.

We just walked in without a reservation, so we were lucky to be seated right away. It was fancier than we expected. We sat on the patio, which was lovely. The food was good and the service was great.
