If you're looking for the most private place for a first date try one of only three booths by the bar. It's really the only place for privacy indoors although when the weather becomes sunny, opt for one of the tables outside. Likely one of...More

Each item that came to our table was fabulous - the watercress Caesar was the star with delicate white anchovies. Service was competent and space delightful. Well priced and a delight all around. You can't go wrong here.

I've been here several times, and it is just wonderful each time. The Bordeauxs are excellent. I would recommend the trout or skate wing. Amazing!! The service is fantastic!

L'Albatros is a great choice after or before Severance Hall or a visit to Museum of Art - wonderful French bistro food - especially onion soup, mussels with frites, salad with lardons and an always perfectly poached egg. Yum!

Response from Jim S | Reviewed this property |
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.
Is it appropriate to come here just for wine and dessert?
