This restaurant was recommended to us by a museum curator downtown Cleveland. Having been in Cleveland on two previous short trips, we rely on recommendations for restaurants. Loved it! Sat at the bar and enjoyed appetisers and dinner. Wonderful!!

Always one of the best. From cold winter night in the cozy environs to festive lively alfresco dining on the best patio in town. Enjoy this wonderfully friendly restaurant! And don't miss the cheese board!

Indoor in winter or outside in summer L'Albatros is a very cozy and friendly experience with Zachary Bruels best creations. All food is wonderful and the Bar food is great alternative when the place is jammed. It's a great stop before or after the orchestra, the art museum, a trip to Wade Oval, MOCCA or the Cleveland Institue of Art.... More

A truly great dining experience. Great, polite, attentive service. And the food... Wow! I had the Monday night special, Coq Au Vin. This chicken and vegetable dish was out of this world delicious. The sauce was so flavorful. It made the chicken, and the vegetables so good! My wife had a pasta dish (no meat) that was also a cut... More

This place never dissapoints, lunch and dinner are equally good, I ve tried mostly everything from bothe menus and there is not anything that I wouldnt get again, lovely and intimate atmosphere. Highly recommend giving it a shot.

We thought the ambiance at L'Albatross was just ok: Hard, plastic chairs, minimalist decor, VERY cramped and close to other diners, but everything else was quite good to exceptional--esp the service. My homemade fettuccine was a bit too al dente, but the broth was exquisite and the dish was fresh and hot--veggies wonderfully prepared. The mixed green salad was pretty... More

L'Albatross was very accommodating when I made my reservation for lunch . The dining room had an intimate feel , the menu offered classical French bistro fare on top of two lunch specials . The dishes were tasty , French comfort food , not unlike what is served at a better Les Routiers establishment in France . The service was... More

We have eaten here twice. The restaurant is tucked away on a narrow street that resembles an alley, so it may be challenging to find. Food is excellent, as is service. The ambience is similar to a French bistro. Prices are reasonable.

We met some friends here and it was a good choice for having a long time for conversation without being rushed. That said, if you are not interested in spending 3 hours on drinks and dinner I am not sure you would be happy here. I ordered the pasta du jour and it was delicious, and everyone else at the...
