I make it a point of trying to go to L'Albatros when in Cleveland as the food is excellent. The space is cozy and comfortable and the service is friendly and knowledgeable. My favorites include skate wing, short ribs and the cucumber and radish salad. There is a good selection of half bottles of wine which I appreciate when dining... More

If you want fine food and superb service, you can't go wrong here. The wait staff is extremely attentive and had no problems checking ingredients on menu items (I have many intolerances). The chef was able to suggest a substitution for an item and did not seem at all put-out that I was adjusting a menu item (always a plus!)... More

the food was excellent, but the service was extremely slow. We also found the seating crowded. The dining room was noisy and therefore hard to have a conversation.

I'm overall a fan of this place. The portions, menu choices and service are first rate and at a GREAT value. BUT, I cannot stand the claustrophobic feeling inside and the parking is not too friendly a place, especially given it is NOT in downtown CLE. This would be hands down in the top 10 or 20 places in ALL... More

I have eaten at L'Albatros many times. I have eaten lunch, dinner and after events. I have had Braised Beef Short Ribs, L’albatros Burger, onion soup, among other dishes and various salads. I always find these very good. My wife has had the Escargots, Duck dishes, Trout and the sausage dish and finds these very good as well. Further, my... More
