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.

My wife brought me here for Sunday brunch when visiting for the weekend. I must have tried 10 things I never would try and enjoyed most of them. If you are up for an adventure (foie gras milkshake shooters... Who would think of that treat!!!) then try this place. Pricey for brunch but this place is an experience. Plenty of... More

We had a very average lunch at Lacroix this weekend. We'd read the great Tripadvisor reviews and expected a wonderful meal. We did not get it. The onion soup was lackluster and overly salted, and certainly not brimming over with cheese. We both left most of the soggy bread and soup untouched. My lobster roll, at $28, had the smallest...

Their knowledge of their wine selection is world class. If you would have been puzzled about what wine to drink with Grilled octopus followed by sweetbreads you would have been with me. They suggested a Riesling and it was perfect! Small portions of supreme food. Pricey but worth it.

I have always been a big fan of the brunch, but recently went for dinner. I have not been to LaCroix for dinner in a while and really enjoyed the experience. The food was delicious and presented beautifully. We dined overlooking Rittenhouse Square while eating fabulous food with impeccable service.
