The brunch buffet had many interesting dishes (the cauliflower/duck confit was yummy) and its usual exception dishes (particularly the wild mushrooms in herb nage). However we were seated next to a large family with 2 young girls, who screamed, sang loudly, ran around their table, and laid down on the floor between our tables and thrashed around. Not the way we wanted to spend our anniversary brunch.

The food is distinctive - the avocado, grains, pear, and watermelon radish salad is particularly good. The service is always excellent. The place is elegant and quiet, but not stiff. Highly recommend for a lunch where you want excellent, healthy food and an opportunity to talk with your guest, in peace.

While Lacroix for breakfast delivered in setting and elevated ambience, the food honestly didn’t impress. Unfortunately you can find equal or better eggs Benedict from a much smaller/interesting restaurant around town. Also, for some reason our order seemed to be put on hold in preference to the large table seated after us. Whether that was the case or not, our meal came after substantial waiting time, and also we felt the staff could have been more attentive to us during this wait time. For example, we were not asked if we wanted another cappuccino even though it was clearly empty for some time. Overall I expected a lot more from this meal and I cannot possibly be expected to return for only the ambience, so I’ll choose to find another place next time. This is not just any old place, it’s fancy, and it needs to be better.

If you are looking for the most romantic, decadent brunch well worth the price then no need to look any further.

The attention to detail, fabulous food immaculately prepared and arranged, 5 star service makes this our yearly go to for Valentine weekend.

Yes the price is high, let's get that out of the way right now but it is well well worth it.

Big ups to Jorge for being such a gracious server-very professional but not too uptight and serious.

Easily the best brunch in the area, hands down!

I have been dreaming of the brunch at LaCroix for years. I missed the old days of the great brunches and heard that this was even better. Perhaps my expectations were not fair. It certainly didn’t even come close to meeting them.

The service in the beginning was exceptional, but perhaps because we had such a late reservation, by the end the service wasn’t quite as good. Oh, they still took your plates, but coming around to see if you needed more coffee, replacing a napkin, even making sure you had utensils was much slower.

The food was good. It wasn’t exceptional, certainly not what I would’ve expected. Again, perhaps it was later, but I don’t know any excuse for giving someone a piece of meat with more fat than edible material. In fact, even the edible part, which wasn’t as inviting after cutting away most, wasn’t anything to write home about.

Now on the plus aide, the tour and open invitation into the kitchen was amazing. I would go back just for that, but at the price they charge, not for a very long time. It was great, but not that great. Though once is probably worth it. I’d go to the early brunch for half the price, it might be more worth it.

That said, one thing of note was the management was exceptional. Front he manager and person giving us the tour to the cleanliness, it was second to none.

Overall, I struggled writing this review. I don’t think it was a bad brunch, but I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone unless they wanted an interesting experience. Personally, I think there are less expensive brunches with better food and comparable service.

One of the best meals I have ever had. Everything was beyond amazing. The food was sensational, each and every course. We were afraid that with a tasting menu, we wouldn’t get enough to eat but we had plenty! The wine paired well. The service was personable and impeccable. Cannot wait to see the next menu.

LaCroix has been an annual destination for myself, my wife and select friends for over 10 years. I can't tell you about the main menu, but the brunch on Sunday morning is amazing. Easily the best food I will consume each year, and really fantastic taste. Given the skill of the staff, and the variety of dishes, I have never had a bad dish, just unexpected ones. If you have a big date, need to impress out of towners, or just want to really taste a wide range of culinary skills, you can depend on LaCroix's brunch to do all of those.
