We've stayed at the Rittenhouse Hotel twice now but this is the first time we've also dined there, in Lacroix. We had a light dinner one night and breakfast 3 times. The hotel is among the best, if not the best, in Philadelphia and there is great attention given to service. That said, there really is such a thing as... More

Brunch on Sunday with Family visting from NYC was excellent. I did not suspect that this restaurant was in town since we moved here from Brooklyn. Our room Maitre 'D and wait staff were highly professional and pleasant. He provided us with a detailed tour of available food stations and did well by me by describing the Chipped Beef selection...

We had been traveling for several days and needed something special. We stayed at The Rittenhouse and seldom eat where we stay as we seek out the special places elsewhere. However, I heard many good things about Lacroix from the locals with whom I met that day. It was very special! The attention to wine and very special food is... More

It was the first time that in USA (and we are living in ny) we had a perfect service with a very good cuisine. They deserve 2 Michelin stars, I really hope one day Michelin will arrive in Philly!

What a delicious meal! The wine pairings were perfect accents to each course of the tasting menu. It was an exciting culinary journey perfect for a birthday celebration! One of the best restaurants I have been to.

We had Sunday Brunch and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were very well looked after. At $75 per head, it isn't a casual affair and we could have gorged ourselves on high quality fare. The Brunch is set out as help yourself with different stations for appetizers, deserts and sushi with the main courses... More

This brunch is excellent! From stone crabs, shrimp and oysters to smoked salmon, skirt steak and duck, it is a must for a special occasion! The chocolate pot de Creme with gran marnier was a highlight for dessert. The service however, was horrible. They poured me coffee and didn't bring cream, so I had to ask after about 8 minutes....

Chef Chicon is the premier man behind the scenes, cooking masterpieces. Sylvain Briens is the cosmopolitan dining manager. My major complaint is the hostility of the staff towards handicapped people. I have Diabetes II, and at buffets, I need assistance by the wait staff in obtaining platters, as I must sit because of circulation problems in my feet. In my... More

We were at Lacroix on Saturday, August 13th for the 9 course tasting and wine pairing dinner. We started with the Caviar service. Everything was incredible including the service. Then to top off the night, we were taken back to our hotel in a beautiful Jaguar, complments of the hotel/restaurant. Thanks again Lacroix. Wade and Charlie
