We had delicious food and great service at L'Abatros. Since I have Celiac disease I was grateful that they had knowledge of gluten free food and how to accommodate me. I will come back here every time I visit Cleveland.
Wow! This restaurant was everything we expected and more! There was a creamy mushroom bisque that was out of this world, and the entrees were excellent. If you're looking for a great date night spot, this is it. The prices weren't crazy either, which was definitely noted. We got a special package through the Glidden House, and I recommend going this route if you're looking for a fun overnight adventure!
The boeuf bourguignon and roasted cod are delicious. Our server Michael (second time) is fantastic with just the right touch.
As always, L'Albatros has presented to us its unique hospitality, elegance and unsurpassed gourmet cuisine. The place is a true trademark of the University circle fine art and intellectual center. At L'Albatros, no detail goes untouched.
Best onion soup ever! Amazing pan seared trout! Our fave - duck confit! Cheeses, greens, foie gra. And of course, the French deserts.....I'll stop right here.:))
One of the very best in Cleveland!!
Unfortunately my walleye was served mostly raw. Unbelievable. I applaud that it was removed from the bill. Staff was wonderful. Something is wrong in the kitchen.
I enjoyed the experience..eclectic ambiance, fairly good wine list, nice menu selection. My bass special was excellent and our appetizers were very good. Service was very good, keeping our water glasses full and at our beckon call with smiling faces. Only small is issue was the noise level, but that is location dependent within the dining area.
Food was excellent and dining in the patio was a +
Love the food. Service was fast.
The food was great but I think the restaurant could do with updating the space.
Dining at its finest. Exceptional food and incomparable service. Our server made several excellent recommendations.
The salads were phenomenal. Classic with creative twists. I had the arugula and radicchio with lemon olive oil - and my husband had a watercress caesar - both were outstanding. The entrees can be very rich - so pace yourself accordingly. But every bite is worth it! Also, the service was impeccable - everyone from the water refiller, to the bread person, to our main server kept an eye on our every need and exceeded our expectations.
Lovely "date" restaurant. French bistro ambiance.
The mushroom French Toast and the French Onion Soup are really exceptional.
The food is consistently good, although I will admit the root vegetable cassoulet was not my favorite.
Exceptional flavors. Creative entree choices exquisitely prepared with lovely presentation. Good value.
Excellent food and service. Nice location. There was a large party nearby that was a bit raucous, but we could still hear to carry on a conversation.
Solid and comfortable, high quality at a fair price.
Evening at the orchestra with friends.
Always good but I do wish they’d have more vegetarian entrees. They’ve had the same vegetable cassoulet forever. Pasta is just an uncreative excuse for vegetarian. I’m a pescatarian but occasionally like to forgo meat/fowl/fish altogether.
Family dinner with six of us. Shared the mushroom ragu over French toast...outstanding!!!
Nice cocktails, good wine, family and good food made for nice evening.
Food was great - we were jammed into a corner in their patio fireplace room unfortunately.
Menu was interesting and offered many choices and service was great.
We had a beautiful meal at Lalbatross on Sunday prior to attending a concert at Severance Hall. Our waiter and the rest of the staff did everything within their power to make sure our experience was one of superior dining. What a gem this restaurant is in Mr Burell's list of accomplished eating places in Cleveland.
always a great evening!
The food was truly outstanding. We shared the chopped salad which included chicken, roquefort cheese and a delicious tangy light dressing; the roasted trout with almonds, and the pistachio cake. These were all perfect to share because the whole portions were quite big.
Exceptional food and Most attentive staff anywhere!
We had a delightful lunch with well prepared food and gracious service. Kudos to the kitchen, including the pastry chef!
Nice place to bring my son while visiting the Case Western campus.
When in doubt when searching for a special place for lunch....always a pleasure!
Very nice evening. Attentive but not obtrusive service. Excellent food as usual.
Great experience for my first visit. Food was excellent. Cod with sauerkraut and spatzle doesn't sound right, but it was delicious. Cheese selection is a nice feature and one of the reasons for our visit.
Wasn't disappointed in any regard. Highly recommended!
Great experience. The staff was extraordinarily accommodating and pleasant. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was enjoyable.
I had a great time at this restaurant, the service was excellent. The waiters were very attentive. However, the food wasn't actually as awesome as I thought it would be. Don't get me wrong, they were good, but perhaps my expectations were too high bc it's be touted to be such a top notch restaurant.
Nice menu, good vsle. Great service
One of Cleveland's classic restaurants for a reason. Always reliable for a great meal. We've been 4 times now and still haven't worked through everything we want to try on the menu. A real gem.
All in all, a perfectly lovely evening with my family. Service was very attentive and the food delicious. Will definitely go back.
Absolutely love this restaurant! I try something different every time I go and I've never been disappointed. The food is exceptional! I also love the atmosphere; it's very intimate and romantic.
Our first disappointing experience here. The food wasn't as fresh tasting as usual which we figured because it was spring break. Our server's hair was not tied back and we saw her hair touching the cheese on the cheese tray while she was carrying it. We were really nervousshe was going to bring out our food with her hair in it, luckily they had runners bring out our food. I recommend getting a cart for the cheese because we saw other servers having similar issues with carrying the cheese tray. Still a good restaurant. Just please address the finer details to bea great restaurant. Attention to detail goes a long way.
This was our first visit, and it was highly recommended by friends for a good reason - fabulous! Having traveled to France several times, it was such a pleasure to enjoy an authentic lunch at par with the real thing! The service was outstanding (Thanks, Mark!) and the buzz of the place took us back to a Parisian bistro! Best French Onion soup ever, and wonderful terrine & traditional salad for me, while my husband enjoyed the Caesar salad and vegetarian pasta (he's a carnivore so that says a lot!) We made a special trip here which was followed by The Cleveland Museum of Art to walk off the meal...all in all, a great Good Friday!!
Although I have been happy with this restaurant many times before this time the food was terrible. My daughter did not eat her meal either. My fish special was not edible. The next day I shared our experience with the restaurant and they defended their food and apologized. I expected much more.
It was all very good. The food was excellent, the service was very attentive and knowledgeable. Love the cozy atmosphere too!
