Over Easter weekend we had dinner here and Chris, Alexandra and the entire staff were amazing. Best service and attention ever. Chris in particular was both helpful and entertaining. The food selections were a little different--good but different. We were expecting French but they describe it as progressive American. Also there dress code is business casual....but many were there very... More

We stayed at the Rittenhouse and went to this restaurant for dinner one night and breakfast. The food was absolutely wonderful and the service was unbelievable. They were great with the kids and were happy to help with anything we needed. Without a doubt I would go back to this restaurant and recommend it to anyone.

Remembering a favorite meal from years gone by we returned to Rittenhouse Square and the Lacroix. Located on the second floor of what is a hotel with condos above the hardest part of going there is getting there. Traffic is horrendous and parking a test of ones patience and good humor. Once there, the service begins at the door. My... More

So before writing this I want to be clear that i came for lunch, and I'm seeing a ton of really positive brunch reviews I don't want to take away from. Honestly, my overall thoughts were that I was paying a lot... a lot a lot... for food that was not out of this world enough to negate the a... More

You can have eggs a bunch of different ways, salads, charcuterie, desserts, oysters, sushi, the list goes on and on.

Looking for a buffet which is not only unique and good food, you found the place. The portions were in single size and it looks appetizing and not like someone has gone through the whole plate. The single portions allow you to try everything which is great. Although pricey it is worth the price and the service and staff were... More

What a special place to dine. Serene, really. You will ask yourself, as you look upon beautiful Rittenhouse Square are are served like king and queen, "where am I?" It's a wonderful dining experience you should take advantage of while in Philadelphia. My husband and I dined around Valentine's Day, and the restaurant was offering a 5-course tasting menu. I...

My friends and I, residents of Washington, D.C., had a superb dinner at Lacroix several years ago. So, on our visit to Philadelphia this week, it was our natural first choice. It was terrific before and even better on this visit. Actually, "incredible" is the word. The staff could not have been more accommodating--incredibly knowledgeable and attentive. The cuisine was...

I find this to be far and away the best restaurant in Philly. So much so that we've been back many many times in the last year or so, sometimes even just driving in from Baltimore just to have dinner (yes, Baltimore). The food here is beautiful. I'd say it's better than many of those fancy uber-star ones in NYC,... More
