Always welcoming and cozy in the winter. Love fireplace. Excellent mussels
The service was really disappointing. They went from very attentive at the beginning to missing in action after the entree. Brought dessert so slowly I thought I died. And then brought only one of two rather than both together. Really ruined an evening at a place I once enjoyed.
Food was excellent as always, on past visits to this restaurant service was outstanding. This last time was just not the same experience we’re used to.
Hey Zack, please train the wait staff. They are intrusive, ill timed and not refined. Also please lose the Chocolate Napoleon. You would be sent home for it in any competition. It’s not a deconstruction it’s a failed construction. Halina and I are your fans. With love, Ned.
L'Albatros is a place I wish I could eat every night. The staff, service, food and ambiance are exceptional. We find ourselves eating at the bar as often as we do at a table because we love the bar staff and both the indoor and outdoor bar settings. It is an absolute gem of a place.
L'Albatros continues to please. The salmon over lentils with bearnaise sauce was great as was the liver pate as an appetizer. The oysters were a disappointment. I ordered six. My friend and I ate one, and I discovered that they had put raw onions on the oyster. All one could taste were the onions. I complained and the waiter brought us back four fresh substitutes. One would have thought they would have given us six as a replacement.
The waiter was fairly efficient but not particularly welcoming. There were four at our table, and he did not get the bills right until three tries.
The rest of the food was superb, including roast chicken, and a delicately prepared cod.
My house salad was exceptional, the split peo soup was perfect.and the bread is addictive. Best of all the servers are all well trained professionals.
Everyone there was so accommodating and polite . The food was amazing. I will go back again and again.
First of all, we were impressed with how the hostess and the waiters/waitresses were so knowledgeable of the dishes on the menu. Their take on the dishes was not necessarily a blanked "it's fantastic," or what not. One can tell they have tasted/eaten many of these offerings so they were able to let you know from experience. The service was very efficient, without rushing you or being in-a-rush. After a while, I began to, on purpose, observe these employees as they served other tables as well. The ambiance, although at first seem odd (we thought we entered the restaurant through their back or side doors), seemed to have its charm as we were leaving because the kitchen area was quite near the door and thus, immediate upon entering the building. The menu has good varieties. Our selections were very tasty without being overwhelmed with heavy-handed seasoning. We were celebrating our anniversary and indeed it was meaningful when also accompanied by such pleasant people in the restaurant. I had a heart attack near our actual anniversary, thus this 5-month delay in having a chance to take my wife out to a nice restaurant for this occasion (and my health now really on the mend) was indeed memorable. Thanks for being such a delightful place. You all seem to enjoy being there and making others happy. You did us. Thank you.
L’Albatross is fantastic. The food is spectacular and although it’s pricey, it’s worth every penny. Service is excellent.
Neither your typical restaurant nor menu. Creative, beautifully prepared, well presented meals, excellent service and an interesting venue all create the perfect evening. Try it and you won’t be disappointed.
I sat at the bar, service was excellent. The french toast was amazing. Excellent wine. Duck confit was superb.
Wonderful food and service. Throughly enjoyable. We will be back.
Pasta dujour was exceptional! Split pea soup always a favorite!. Friendly and attentive service. We'll be back.
I really liked the environment, really nice staff and food was the best Ive had in Cleveland so far.
Oftentimes when I have an appointment at Cleveland Clinic, we stay overnight at Glidden House and enjoy a great meal at L'Albatros. Thursday evening was no exception. Baked cod was undoubtedly the best dinner we have had in several years. Everything was excellent. We do not hesitate to recommend L'Albatros to friends who are visiting Cleveland.
A real gem of a place. We were visiting and this restaurant was recommended by friends. Glad we came.
Loved everything I had here. We were greeted with a Happy Anniversary when we walked in which was very nice. Our waiter Ryan was outstanding- very personable and knowledgeable. The goat cheese tart is great, but you must try the French Toast- so different and so amazing! Enough to share but I think I would get my own next time. The Chicken Breast entree was perfect- cooked to perfection and a nice portion- not too much and not too little. The breaded cauliflower was very good, though a bit spicy for me, the root vegetables were perfect. Pistachio cake was good but the chocolate napolean is awesome. The atmosphere is very nice, romantic, great for a nice evening out. Our waiter was able to suggest a great wine based on my tastes. The owner is very personable as well. Great restaurant, cant wait to come back and try something else (and more French Toast).
L’Albatros is a wonderful French restaurant. A great place to take friends and to celebrate.
One of our favorite restaurants. Never disappoints. Even with the menu items, it's hard to choose, because there are so many that are so good. Best cheese board in the city. Attentive, knowledge staff.
The vegetarian cassoulet was closer to a gratin in my humble opinion. I love the classic cassoulet here. The leek appetizer was great as always. Steak frites was excellent. Scallop dish came with noodles that were very good but quite heavy/rich. Tough pairing with such a delicate protein. Pistachio cake was fantastic!
My wife and I were in Cleveland for a seminar and had a romantic dinner.
The Best Pied de Cochone, that I have ever have had!!!
We started with the amazing French Toast appetizer which is a mushroom ragout over a very gooey French toast with a basalmic reduction! Then onto the onion soup which has a piece of beef that adds amazing beefiness to the broth. My husband enjoyed his scallops and I had the veal short ribs. My husbands favorite was the cream caramel. A French burgundy was also enjoyed! Service was outstanding! A little piece of France in Cleveland.
Seated 4 inches from table next to us on both sides and they charge for parking in their own dedicated lot—-never again
Our waitress was excellent and the manager made a small issue right immediately. The seating arrangement was terrible with our table stuck too close to tables on either side.
I took my grandson to dinner before a concert at CIM and when I told him we would eat at L'Albatros he was delighted as I have taken him there previously and he loved it! You still have the best mussels "pom frite", which I always seem to order, and he really enjoyed his steak. We will be back soon, hopefully!
Gutes Essen mit französischem Touch. Angenehme, belebte Atmosphäre. Sehr gute Weinauswahl. (Das Restaurant ist von der Strasse her kaum sichtbar und wirkt geschlossen; auch wenn’s drinnen lebhaft voll ist.)
L'Albatros never disappoints. They work at perfection!
The veal special was tender and delicious (but a little over-seasoned) and would have been better plated on a plate vs the bowl which made it difficult to cut the meat.
The server, Greg, was great. The food is always A+.
Hm. I wasn’t imprest that’s for sure. Our waitress forgot my husbands drink and she never put our order in for appatizers. She didn’t know the special for the day and just acted and confused. Food was alright. Nothing special to be honest.
Overall was ok, but I wouldn’t go back to eat there.
As always, it was a wonderful experience all around. One of my favorite restaurants.
Super accommodating. I have celiacs and they have a lot of gluten free options and was very accommodating to meet my needs.
The food and service is always top notch at L'Albatros. Try the desserts (even if you don't have room), they really top off the meal.
We went for my daughter's birthday and everyone enjoyed their meal. Best was the creme brûlée for dessert. This is a bustling place, good for a celebration.
The food is amazing, the staff is lovely and I love the art on the walls - wonderful contrast to the traditional dishes. I can't wait to go back for more amazing cheese and cassoulet!
One of our party was with a walker, so we were put in another room where is was a lot less crowded and quieter. We really appreciated that!
As always fantastic. Down a couple stars in service, but with a 10:30 pm reservation I guess you get the new staff!
