You are overwhelmed by all the choices of appetizers, main courses and the desserts. Go hungry and sample everything. You will...not be disappointed And such a fabulous view of the Square,More

Lacroix is absolutely spectacular!! Since we were staying at the Rittenhouse, we had breakfast, lunch and dinner there (not on the same day, of course). The food and drink were perfect!! The service was exceptional!! The atmosphere and ambiance was great!! Such nice people who...work there and they were so kind in giving us these little chocolate Tiffany cakes to celebrate our anniversary. Kudos to the chefs and all of the staff!! Definitely going back when we visit Philly!!More

The experience at LaCroix was and experience that was beyond my expectations and I shall never forget . It was a friends birthday, and he selected this restaurant. What A Great choice.!!!The ambience of the restaurant was amazing. When my friend and I entered the...lobby of the LaCroix we were greeted with a friendly smile by the Maitre; he quickly checked our reservation and then we were escorted to our table. A table overlooking the street, but a delightful table. The ambience of the restaurant was definitely a feeling of elegance and splendor. Our waiter quickly approached us and inquired about our drink order. Then the waiter explain the daily items on the menu. We finally ordered, a crock of onion soup, which was delicious, I had just a simple sandwich of a turkey club which was great, my friend had some type of fish which he said was great. The whole experience is one that will be etched in my thoughts. Just a most delightful and a awesome experience. I highly recommend this restaurant.More

In hindsight, we should have just walked out. It was our anniversary, which I told the restaurant at the time I made the reservation. When we arrived, the hostess told us that there was a large group seated next to where they planned on seating...us, is that ok? Naturally we said we prefer a quiet spot. We were anticipating a special evening, and according to the reviews, it certainly should have been. We have no complaints about the food, which was first-rate, even if expensive. But if you have a restaurant, where you charge high-end prices, your service should be equally high-end, which it was NOT. Many a time, during the course of the evening, I had to flag down a server. It seems that once we were seated out of the way, we were forgotten. It's a shame, but we wouldn't recommend this restaurant.More
