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...

We'd been trying to get a reservation here each time we visited Cleveland, this time we got smart and made it before we left home. What a great place. The food and service were excellent and the wine list was fantastic. Other reviewers mentioned the ambient noise level, we did not find it to be a problem and there are... More

4 couples met at this charming restaurant to celebrate an early New Years Eve. We brought our own wine and began to celebrate shortly after being seated. Our waiter, Keith, began the uncorking and from there, our experience kept getting better. Each of us had a wonderful meal. Service was outstanding. We were not rushed even though it was the...

If you are looking for a lovely, off the mainline restaurant that serves classic French food at a reasonable price, this is the place for you. The onion soup is to die for! Mussels with frits were delicious. Plump mussels in a white wine butter sauce served with crusty bread and a plate of double fried potatoes were the perfect... More

My husband and I made a reservation at L'Albatross for our one-year anniversary. Our first impression is that the restaurant, neatly tucked away in the University Circle area, is a relatively unknown gem. We were greeted warmly by the hostess and immediately led to a table by the fireplace, which was nice because we also had a lovely view of... More
