We had breakfast here one morning, the food was so good. I had belgian waffles that were so light, without feeling heavy after eating. We raved about the breakfast all morning. Although slightly expensive, the food was worth it. Very friendly delightful staff.

So right up front I’ll say that this was a very pleasant dining experience, but given the price point and competitive Philadelphia fine dining market – I’m only going to give it 4 stars. The few gaps will become apparent in the next 10 items. 1. As far as location, the restaurant is on the 2nd floor of the Rittenhouse... More

My wife and I have enjoyed breakfast and lunch here many times.....never dinner, sorry to say. The food and service have always been wonderful; and the decor is sophisticated but not stuffy. The service and offerings at the bar are also quite good. A surprisingly good restaurant in a wonderful hotel.

I've had French dining in many places in the world but this one certainly ranks among the best. An amazing wine list, both pricey and reasonable selections, everything great and served properly. Don't miss!

My boyfriend and I dined at Lacroix to celebrate my new job. Since he had made the reservations, so many of the staff politely congratulated me. Our server, Benjamin, was fun, polite, informed, and wonderful. The sommelier and all other staff were also on point. Perfect service from when we walked in to when we walked out 3 hours later....

The food overall was wonderful. The raw bar and appetizer area were my favorite. So many choices. I think I got my money's worth in sushi and cocktail shrimp alone. Hehe.
