First impression is everything, and thanks to one of the managers there Samir he made our whole brunch experience fantastic. I definitely recommend Lacroix in Rittenhouse!

Lacroix has, by far, the best brunch we have ever had! The food was tremendous, the view was great, and most importantly, all of the staff were awesome!!

Birthday lunch for a friend. Wish there were a couple of nice vegetarian options. Salad was what we choose as the veggie burger was not desirable.

It’s expensive - but for a special occasion it will be a night to remember. We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing - we also had oysters and charcuterie to start - (way too much food)
Bread and butter - came with goat butter and cow butter, the goat butter had a Cheveir like finish and the cow butter was high quality.
The charcuterie was basic, 4 types of meat, but they were piled high, and the house pickled vegetables were outstanding.
The oysters - it’s oysters - really nice mignonette.
The tasting -
Each course was great, they did an amazing job of giving you just enough of a taste that you want more.

The service was outstanding - 100% - I’m sure if there was an item in the tasting menu that people would t want to try (like the sweetbreads) I have no doubt they would give you something special in its place. (We didn’t substitute but they said if you have any issues to let them know)

The wine tasting was great, but by the end I did have a bit much.

Once again, it is expensive! But the service is the best, the attention to detail is great, and they want to make sure the guest is happy.

Everything is good, but u know what , the seat besides the kitchen, waiters walking around , I dislike ppl walking around when I’m eating ! And they just appeared accidentally, that’s scary !

Worst service I have ever had. Food was fine but everything took forever and they were out of various things, food and wine, and didn't tell us and couldn't even manage to pour the wine. Will not go back, no matter how good the chef is.

You are paying for the ambiance and the service as much as the food (which is always a culinary treasure). It is an overall dining experience. I have made Lacroix my go-to restaurant for celebrations. It has only gotten better over the years.

3 of us ordered the tasting menu with wine pairing, every course with out fail was inventive and very tasty. The only reason I did not give 5 stars was the size of the protein portions in each course. I understand it was a tasting menu but i feel the portions could have been slightly larger. Otherwise delicious and a very nice experirence with great staff and execellent wine pairings

It’s a brilliant restaurant. Food service is exceptional - we took over two hours to have lunch - and the food service was timed perfectly. My wife and I have had lunch here on multiple occasions and it’s perfect each time.

I am sure many will think I am nuts when I say La Croix is a good value. What I mean is that people (our group too) sometimes seek over the top food adventures. LaCroix and its multiple and excessive food stations deliver that. The problem for those of us who love and obsess over the miracle of genius food moments is the excess prevents that from happening. Were the short ribs wonderful? Maybe. Who can remember with a plate filled with Coq au Vin, and duck confit and perhaps a half dozen other items. We will surely come again, to delight those for whom the abundance, not the food, is LaCroix’s reason to be. It is not the food is not good. It is that human beings can’t assess food when we are stuffing ourselves.

We had the taster’s menu, which was fabulous. Everything bite of every dish, from venison to turbot, was a total delight. Staff was great, too. Very attentive without hovering at our table.

Now the negative....the restaurant is the sole dining venue at the Rittenhouse Hotel. Just as our dinner was coming to a close, an adjoining table ordered burgers and fries. The smell of greasy food was a overwhelming, and kind of ruined our gourmet experience. Perhaps hotel diners could be seated elsewhere in the restaurant?

Lacroix is incomparable in elegance. We have dined for brunch 4 times and each experience is more incredible than the last. The staff is informative, guiding your experience with helpful information and the food is expressive, artistic and elevated without pretension. Go and luxuriate in the expertise of this hotel’s staff to create amazing memories for you and your guests.

Tasting menu courses were elegant presentations of flavors to be savored. Discerning wine pairing by conversant sommelier. Service was polished and refined. Totally first class.

Outstanding tasting menu paired with unique and exceptional wines made for a memorable evening to entertain a key business client visiting Philadelphia for the first time from overseas. The attention to every detail and accommodations to requests transported us to a special time where civility and care ruled. And of course the food ... creative, delicious, and beautifully presented. Thank you, Lacroix - always consistently EXCELLENT.
