Stayed at the Rittenhouse Hotel last week and had dinner at Lacroix with the family. Great specialty cocktails, food was excellent and service perfect. Oysters were especially good. Dinner is pricey but what you'd except for fine dining in lux hotel and great environment.

This was our the third visit over four years. The first two were outstanding. This last was not. The service was stuffy. The huge wine list was expensive for what it was and hard to read. The main course in a fixed menu was quite good but the others much less so. All of this was combined with a very... More

I have had some wonderful meals here in the past. This review is of their Christmas buffet which is somewhat related to their Sunday brunch buffet but, according to them more elaborate. The food is all you can eat and is presented in a variety of different stations as a brunch with emphasis on lunch / dinner things. One station... More

There is a reason the Lacroix is one of the outstanding restaurants in Philly and that reason is excellence. Excellence in everything they do. You definitely get what you pay for here. Anything else I can say will just be repeating the exceptional accolades of other reviewers.

Visited yesterday evening and have to say it was excellent. Matt and Scott on the floor were awesome. Other staff just as great. We were last to leave and they were really patient as we slowly finished up. Just great food and great service.

The location is great in The Rittenhouse. I reserved in advance as we were celebrating our anniversary. The restaurant was not packed, so quiet.

This is an extremely elegant dining experience - the Conductor of the Philadelphia Harmonic Orchestra was seated with his family next to us. It was an excellent experience except for the final course which was exceptionally dry - not an expectation for pheasant. Service and attentiveness by all were outstanding as was the dinner except as noted above.

Located at treetop level in the Rittenhouse Hotel this is probably the highest rated restaurant in Philadelphia. The cuisine is always interesting and the setting and service perfect. I visit here on regular basis and be sure to book their terrific Buffets especially on holidays. They are truly spectacular and will impress your guests
