We didn't expect it, but had a great meal here. American hotels are not noted for their food. This was a wonderful surprise. Had both breakfast and dinner.

We were there for their $75pp Sunday brunch. The cold appetizers were well made and delicious, presented beautifully. The hot entrees were in the kitchen, and they let you into the kitchen to get them, they weren't as good as the appetizers, a little over cooked in my opinion. The services were excellent, kitchen and service staff were very attentive.... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here last night and it was wonderful. The place is expensive but worth every dollar. Service was superb as was the food. The setting is very attractive overlooking Rittenhouse Square. Thank you for making our evening special.

Elegant, polished service made this evening memorable, more so than the food. The fixed-price menu offers 4 courses, with plenty of variety. The wine list is extensive and interesting. While the food was beautifully presented, I felt like every course had one ingredient too many, so that flavors were muddled. The kitchen seemed to be trying too hard. A good... More

I've been to Lacroix numerous times, and have never had a bad meal here. Indeed, we love Lacroix so much that we must be here ten times a year, if not more. But last night's dinner really tops it all. In particular, the lobster dish we had was simply out of this world good. Let me elaborate. We've never been... More

What can I say: four courses our way with Grand Cru wine pairing by the fab sommelier, Jean, and Chef Jon presenting inventive and ethereal food. Impeccable wait staff insures a cosseted memorable evening.
