We ate at the bar, bartender (Jackson) was terrific, responsive, knowledgeable and attentive. Food and drinks were excellent, enjoyed the outdoor dining experience. One of our favorite dinner spots.
Our waiter was fantastic and went above and beyond our expectations given our dietary restrictions. Also enabled us to switch seats when the lighting bugs had it for us at our table. 😅 We will be returning the next time we are in Cleveland again.
Excellent restaurant in all respect. We had the cod and trout entrees. Great flavors. Julian helped us select a perfect wine and provided great conversation. Five stars in all respects!
They did a great job addressing COVID concerns (using qr for mobile menus, taking temps, requiring masks until you sat to dine, etc). The atmosphere in the courtyard seating area couldn’t be beat. The food was amazing. My companion is a precessions chef and was amazed by the meal. Very complimentary. You never disappoint.
Fantastic experience. The patio is so nice.
Outdoor dining, Nice evening. Food very good. I would go back.
I hadn’t been to a restaurant since March, but we recently went to L’Albatross for our anniversary and had a wonderful time. I wanted to support them, because through social media I could tell they’re taking things seriously. We had to wear a mask to enter until we sat down. The hostess was so nice and appropriate explaining she would take our temperature and how to use the touchless menus. All staff was masked. They sat us outside as requested. We were far enough apart from other guests. The food was delicious (smoked salmon appetizer was 🤯). I appreciated the experience so much and would 10/10 recommend during these strange times.
One of my favorites. Never had a bad experience at any Bruell restaurant but L'Albatross is definitely the best. Food was excellent. Ambiance was excellent. Patio was beautiful. The servers were all CoVid conscious and everything was done right. Have been many times. Would go back tomorrow. Thank you for a wonderful night out especially in these trying times.
As always, the cuisine and cocktails were excellent. Greg, Kate, and company did a fantastic job with service. In this crazy world we all now live in, L’Albatros is a very comforting and enjoyable place to be.
Always a highlight of having to visit Cleveland Clinic - Thank You for brightening our visit!!
Everything was great! It was my friend ‘s first time and I guarantee she will be back!
As always the food was amazing, the atmosphere extremely pleasant, and the service outstanding! We had a great experience!!!
The staff did an excellent job creating a safe and comfortable dining experience. All patrons were wearing masks before being seated and temperatures were taken when we arrived which made us all feel safety was being taken seriously. Tables on the patio were very far apart and staff wore masks always. Touch-less menus, which you access via a QRC code on your smartphone, were great (and probably should be the norm even without a pandemic). Wonderful food and service as always. Thank you!!!
L’Albatros have done a great job making appropriate changes to care for their staff and guests during this difficult time of pandemic precautions. Sitting out on the patio was wonderful with tables socially distanced and the menu on our phone app. The ambience was lovely with lights and soft music. Our server was excellent and as always, the food delicious. Well done, L’Albatros !
Recently dined here while in Cleveland. Do not miss out on this restaurant! The food is outstanding and unique. Definitely try the cheese board... fantastic presentation! Relaxed atmosphere and exceptional service. We will be back!
L'Albatros is always a wonderful experience. The food, the folks and the atmosphere...perfect.
First time out after COVID19 stay home mandate!
You are doing a great job. I have been there 5 times in the last few weeks and all of the guests who have come with me have also been very happy. Your terrace is GREAT!
The perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. We sat outside, well separated from other diners. The food was all thoughtfully prepared and presented, and the pacing perfect. Besides the spacing of tables, other COVID precautions included masked servers, a choice of a no touch menu (called up on your mobile phone) or single use paper one. The only thing that seemed odd (but was not a problem) was that the bread came in a paper bag instead of a basket.
The patio was great and the staff worked well to make guests feel comfortable.
Excellent food, friendly, courteous staff
22nd anniversary...wonderful dinner on the patio
Very pleasant afternoon to sit on the patio with good friends. Great food and service. Roasted cod and scallops with linguini appetizers mushroom French toast and crispy cauliflower. Sparkling rose.
Food and service were excellent and we would return in a heartbeat. My fiancée chose L’albatros to celebrate our engagement earlier that day. Unfortunately we were seated next to an extremely obnoxious party who were clearly oblivious to the fact that there were other people in the restaurant. Servers were very proactive in moving us as soon as a table opened up and did so without us even asking which was much appreciated. We have nothing but positive feedback for the restaurant and would highly recommend it to anyone. We both agreed it was some of the best French food we have had outside of France.
Best patio in the city! Great job protective people with masks and distancing. The food and service are ALWAYS phenomenal!
Amazing attention to COVID-19 response and no loss of outstanding service, food or drinks. Can not say enough about our first date night out after quarantine. Thank you!
Always a pleasure! Patio was spaced for social distancing. Temperatures taken at the door. I felt safe trying restaurant dining again.
The restaurant did a really great job with temperature checking. Tables have been spaced appropriately. We were able to use our phones to review the menu, but. paper versions were also available. Happy to support them during these crazy times!
Outstanding food and service. We were concerned about our safety because of the virus before going to the restaurant. However, we had a table on the outside patio that was well separated from the other tables. The restaurant had made a huge effort to have a team of Cleveland Clinic physicians inspect the restaurant including the kitchen and modify every aspect of the facility and operation to be COVID-19 safe. We felt very comfortable eating at this restaurant as our first experience after the stay at home orders were lifted. We highly recommend the restaurant.
It was a perfect evening out. All staff and clientele were in adherence to Covid rules. The food was great, as usual, and I can’t wait to go back in 2 weeks!
Excellent service, menu selections, and Covid controls. Exceptional in all aspects and met all of our expectations for patio dining. This is our favorite restaurant and we’ll worth the 45 minute drive time Each way.
Wonderful ambiance and terrific food as always. Thank you to the staff for making our anniversary a terrific night.
Having to wear mask while in the restaurant was uncomfortable and we actually talked about leaving. We respect the virus and precautions , however it felt overload compared to other places we have been to. We actually felt better at a restaurant that allows us to not wear masks. The service took forever and food was cold. We have loved this restaurant for years and hope to return once things get back to normal.
The service, staff, and food Ian always great. Thanks for another fantastic experience.
Absolutely fantastic. Came here on a first date 2 years ago and have been multiple times since. Could not ask for anything more, we'll be back soon!
Really enjoyed our meal ~ sat outside, waiter was nice and attentive, food was delicious. Highly Recommend
Amazing. Thank you for taking the time to provide a safe and lovely experience and a delicious dinner. Just fabulous.
Amazing patio and server experience! Will definitely be back soon.
