Cleveland is a 2.5 hour drive from our home in Pittsburgh PA, so we don't visit often -- usually in connection with a visit to the Cleveland Museum of Art. For our most recent visit, I used TripAdvisor to identify restaurants near the museum. L'Albatros...More

to get to the restaurant you enter via a parking lot where they charge you maybe $5 or so to park. I think they also have valet, but the lot is within 50 feet of the front door.
