“Consistently Excellent”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

The food at L'Albatros is always excellent, in fact, I think it is the best of Chef Bruell's 5 Cleveland restaurants. One of the reasons that makes it so good is the excellent management of it. Brandon is welcoming and a class act from drinks to desserts. All of the staff (especially and including Frances at lunch time) are versed in making the dining experience wonderful from the moment you enter the restaurant. We in Cleveland are fortunate to have such a well-run restaurant among so many excellent dining options here.

“Meeting”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Met with prospective board members for lunch and what a great spot. Have eaten here numerous times and it gets better with each visit. The food is incredibly creative and delicious. I highly recommend the cheese course and an assortment of appetizers. Will be back!

“My favorite restaurant.”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

This was our third perfect visit to L'Albatros. The service was outstanding and the root vegetable cassoulet was the perfect entree for a cold winter afternoon.

“Excellent Dinner”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

This was my second dinner at this restaurant. The service was attentive, but very relaxed. We never felt rushed. Drinks were very good. The wine list has entries at virtually all price points.

The charcuterie platter served 3 as an appetizer. All our entrees were excellent. (I had the cassoulet). French press coffee with your choice of beans.

“Very Good French Restaurant”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

This is a very nice French restaurant. While everything - drinks, menu selection, authenticity of food, overall quality of food, ambiance and service was very good, nothing stood out as truly outstanding. That said, we had a wonderful time and we would return.
