We have enjoyed Lacroix on several occasions and are never disappointed by the food or service. Good for any meal - breakfast (not the buffet) lunch or dinner

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.

After visiting Theatre, we visited The Lacroix for apres theatre celebration. Service was excellent; manager was more than expected and food was perfect! Normally, I am not too excited to eat in a hotel yet we had 2 promotions from Skyauction and we were in the neighborhood and urged to check-it out. We were entertained, pampered and had a great...

We had dinner to celebrate a special occasion. The only very mild criticism was the decor--we definitely felt like we were in a hotel lobby. On the other hand we had a great window view of Rittenhouse Square. Everything else about the evening was superlative--food and service were both first rate. Going for the wine pairings rather than selecting the... More

Off to college, saying goodbye to your parents. Time to step up to adulthood and thank them for their infinite patience by using your own money to buy them brunch at Lacroix, preferable on a Sunday. They will thank you and be impressed by your maturity. Our brunch started with an actual tour of the kitchen and various hot dishes... More

Sunday brunch in an urban grand hotel is one of America's greatest contributions to dining. When in the States I always research brunch with care and will travel 2+ hours for the best available. La Croix has the bonus of a light French / international touch and immaculate service. It was everything it should have been, and while not cheap... More

See my all encompassing review of the hotel, that includes Lacroix. Simply stated, as we have always found on our visits to The Rittenhouse, a meal at Lacroix is a must. Last Friday, we celebrated my wife's birthday, with a stay at the hotel, and a very enjoyable meal at Lacroix. The menu was interesting, the food excellent (the chef... More

So elegant! So sophisticated! So upscale Philadelphia! I've had Tea before but this place knocks tea drinking out of the park. The tea menu is vast and the tea mistress actually had us smell each of the many available flavors. It was all so divine!!
