Food was excellent. Service was overall impeccable as it is everywhere at the Rittenhouse. It would rate 5 stars but they did forget to bring one of the entrees. We waited a bit thinking it would be coming quickly and then called it to the attention of a server. He was very apologetic And went to check on the order. Apparently it was not ordered. The rest of us were finished eating before the other entree came. All the staff were extremely apologetic, the entree was comped, and we were given a dessert to take with us. All in all I would definitely return an recommend it for a nice evening out.

What a wonderful experience!
Took my husband here for his birthday and from beginning to end, everything was perfect. All the staff knew what they were talking about when it came to the menu ( especially our waiter). Everyone was attentive.

The 6 course( including dessert) cost $125.
The courses were small but mostly delicious.The service was excellent, helpful and pleasant.
Adding a cocktail and a glass of wine , plus tax and tip, plus $20 Valet parking , brought our tab over $400.
We enjoyed our meal, but not one that we could plan frequently.

I only gave 4 stars because this was my 3rd visit in 2 years and the menu has not changed. I'd like to see it changed up a bit!

My dinner at Lacroix was well worth it. This was my first time experiencing anything like this, so it was all overwhelming. That being said, the service was wonderful, the food was outstanding, the drinks was amazing, and the atmosphere was very pleasant. I wish I knew the names of all the staff that assisted us so I could compliment all of them. I do remember our server was Dan and he was just wonderful and charming. My night here was definitely one to remember.

La Croix, as always, met all expectations, from the initial greeting to the final treats served at the end of the meal. Probably, the best dining experience in Philadelphia. Enjoyed the wine flight this time which was both informative and tasty.

One of the most elegant restaurants we have ever been to. The service, the food, and the atmosphere were all exceptional. Definitely be back for a return visit in the near future.

My husband and I make a yearly visit to Phila, where we used to reside and where we have friends. Our Sunday ritual is brunch at Lacroix!
It is an extraordinary experience and unique!
Dining room overlooking Rittenhouse Square, lovely service and incredible food.
Oysters , caviar, smoked salmon, shrimp cocktail. An entire table of small bites and salads. Eggs, bacon, pancakes fresh whipped cream and berries. One takes a trip into the actual kitchen where the large array of hot food is laid out. Duck confit, sliced leg of lamb, Scottish salmon, among many other choices. Then to another room filled w desserts, cobbler, bread pudding a chocolate fountain.
Brunch is truly a wonderful experience.
Please try it next time....
Can not wait til next year!!

Beautiful view of Rittenhouse Square Park, quiet atmosphere and a tasting menu on a par with the best we’ve had in Bordeaux. Well timed courses combined with an excellent description of how the wines paired with the courses. An excellent dining experience!

Over priced food menu. The pom frittes were not truly fresh cut or hand batch...probably frozen and larger cut fries like McDonald’s.
The flavor of the food did not leave me wanting for more. The red wine was extremely warm 70 degrees F and not balanced. The wait staff was very attentive and the service was great!
I would not return. Perhaps just a poor night in the back of house.

We used to have New Year’s Day brunch every year at four seasons until they closed a some years ago. Ever since, we’ve been trying other places throughout the city looking for that same experience, to no avail. How have we missed this place all that time? Now that we’ve found it, Delighted to say the least! Best New Year’s Day brunch in Philadelphia for sure! Don’t know about brunch at the new four seasons and at this point don’t really care. This has officially become the new location for our old tradition!!! Yay! Everything was awesome, the selection, the service, the ambience, everything!

The bar service and food was wonderful. Over the weekend we visited it multiple times.

We sat for dinner around 9 on New Years Eve. We had asked for a window seat, and got one, but it was the last table to the rear. That was fine, but then we were ignored! When we finally ordered bottled still water for the table, we got sparkling, and since this first process took at least 15 minutes, it left a sad first impression. Then my wine class wasn’t clean, and while I had a view of most other tables, where service seemed impeccable, we were ignored. I finally switched sides with my husband so I didn’t have to watch. It was ironic b/c the table next to us ordered the wine tasting, and was literally fawned over as each new glass was explained with its course.

The service improved as the dinner progressed, and the food was excellent. The only weak dish was the pheasant—better than I expected but definitely not on par with the rest. We were also impressed with our Somm, who was very knowledgeable about wine.

As hotel guests, we returned for brunch on NYDay and had a completely wonderful experience. The options, the freshness, the different stations even in the kitchen were without a flaw. This time our service was excellent. Will definitely do brunch again!! We were there from 11-2! As we left, a waiter from the night before asked how dinner had been. I said it was okay but the brunch had been amazing.

One more thing. We had eaten dinner there in February for Valentines Day and had the best food and service, so I want to mention that we have had a much better experience before.
