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.

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.

The accommodations for my GF allergy was most appreciated, the service was the BEST I've ever experienced and the presentation of all but one course was extremely special. The wine selection was incredible and the ambiance noteworthy. Thank you again for a wonderful birthday. That being said, for me personally, I wasn't expecting Squab on the menu, which had I known, I would waited for another time. Perhaps it was on the website and I neglected to view it ahead of time. Viewing certain food items or knowing where they came from doesn't bode well with me and my stomach. The squab (pigeon), while my husband found delicious and fascinating, didn't work for me at all, especially viewing it in a "nest" (aka hay). I'm sure all the other patrons found it incredible and noteworthy. Just not for me.

Our 2nd time here for the chef’s tasting menu dinner with wine pairings. The 1st time was really good. This time was mysteriously not. On our first visit we made a substitution request for one of us, and asked for the regular tasting menu for the other one. No problems. This time around we were told that wasn’t possible. Hmmm. Okay, we’re seated, we’re hungry, maybe it will get better. This time we sprang for the “reserve” wine pairings. That means you get dregs from mostly empty bottles, one person gets half what the other is poured, and you pay more for the privilege. Service was slow and uneven. One of our dishes got cold while waiting for its wine pairing. Then they decided to pour the rest of a bottle of red Hermitage. With a halibut fillet. I’m all for adventurous, foody rule breaking, but that made no sense at all. Our head waiter made absentminded appearances. The junior guy who brought us most of our food really cared. He brought us an extra dish of bread, seeing us twiddle our fine silver dining forks. The head waiter decided we shouldn’t get to have that because the cheese course is served on a little tart so “bread is not necessary”. The whole thing came out to over $600. We spent that much the last time we were here and we’ve spent more than that at other fine dining establishments. We like good food, good wine, a nice atmosphere and excellent service. So for a once or twice a year treat, that’s how much it costs for two. My complaint, therefore, is not about the price as a number. It’s that once you cross a certain price for two diners, there truly should be no service issues. Bottom line: the food is good and imaginative but it can all be ruined by poor delivery. Not going back and I’m not able to recommend it since it’s a 50/50 bet.

Although the service and ambience were outstanding, the food lacked anything special. I went for lunch and the food was sub-par. I expected much more for the hype and price. I have scheduled another reservation to try the brunch, in hopes of redeeming the high expectations I have at a restaurant that comes so highly recommended.

It’s been over a year since our last visit and if anything the excellent experience has improved. Dishes were seasonal and locally sourced as appropriate to good effect. Menu generally showed a welcome and surprising creativity. All plates were not equally successful, but that only serves to exemplify a cuisine that was not just coasting. The squab course was particularly interesting to the palate and the eye. There has been improvements to the wine list, which while still somewhat limited provides good choices for different regions and price points. We ordered the better wine pairing and found it well matched with the food while representing some atypical varietal choices. Generally, somewhat pricey, but can be considered a reasonable value.
