I love feeling like I'm treating myself to something special. This spot did it. I love brunch and I love being pampered. The food was unbelievably good, so much choice, such variety. It's a buffet style with multiply Food Rooms to pick from. When you get there they give you a tour of all the different choices and which room... More

Brunch is my favorite meal. The dilemma of breakfast or lunch becomes enjoyable when you can have both, your way. This was an over the top experience. We loved it. The service was great but the food was sensational. Because the restaurant floor is not really large enough for serving all the food, the restaurant serves part of the buffet... More

Amenities are top notch. Charming setting right by the park. Lacroix dining experience is what you would expect excellent service and beautiful setting! The breakfast is buffet style which was something that I was not expecting for such a nice setting. Parking is available but it is valet service.

Our dinner experience was excellent. They only offered a Menu Degustation for dinner but that was exactly what we were looking and it was excellent. The wine pairing was perfect. Thank you.

I have been lucky to visit many nice places for brunch around the world. Lacroix has been one of my best brunch experiences ever.
