Situated at the Rittenhouse Hotel at Rittenhouse Square, Lacroix offers French and contemporary European cuisine. It has a beautiful traditional French decor. We have been there for lunch and dinner before, but this time for brunch. They have a wonderful Sunday brunch. Due to space constraints, they had to lay out some of the dishes in the kitchen. Eggs Benedict,... More

First time coming here and anytime I am back in Philadelphia we will be coming back in. So many different options that it was hard to pick what to put on each plate. Getting to go back into the kitchen for the main dishes was a great experience to see. Don't worry about the cost as it is well worth... More

I ate here because I was staying at The Rittenhouse Hotel and received a complimentary breakfast from the Leading Hotels of the World. I did not know exactly what to expect but was very impressed. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. The ambiance was great. I would highly recommend dining here!

There is a menu selection or buffet for breakfast. There are numerous choices on the menu. The staff is excellent and very attentive. The room is very beautiful and full of light. This is a very positive way to start the day with an excellent breakfast. The frittata was superb.

What a lovely brunch! Food was outstanding and it was the first time that I went to brunch and got a tour of the kitchen. They set up half the buffet in the kitchen, which was immaculate, with the kitchen staff there preparing food. The selection was over the top - Seafood Raw Bar (with caviar), salads and small apps...

I had a lovely birthday dinner here overlooking Rittenhouse Square. The hotel is also beautiful, and it set a wonderful ambience to have a relaxing, beautifully served, delicious dinner. We had the tasting menu and loved it. It is an expensive special-occasion type of place.

Everything about Lacroix makes it a top-notch dining experience, probably one of the top 5 we have had since moving to the Philly area six years ago. Service - among the best we have seen. Knowledgeable, gracious and engaging with no attitude of any kind. Wine list - overwhelming. Easily one of the most extensive we've seen. Food - spectacular.... More

This is a fancy brunch that is worth the price. The dining room overlooks Rittenhouse Square and the stations are laid out throughout the restaurant with the carving stations and hot dishes in the kitchen itself. There's a full raw bar with East and West Coast posters, caviar, snow crab, sushi, shrimp cocktail. The carving stations are amazing, although my... More
