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 am planning to have a dinner soon for the first time. I was wondering how much I would spend on average per person on a la cart menu. (We are not a wine couple, but certainly some cocktails we would have :) And also, if we decide to go for 4 courses menu, how much is that? thanks.

Hard to say, as it will vary by items chosen for a la carte. I spent $130 for the tasting menu (for one) with a single bottle of wine last year (March 2015).

We are planning to visit Lacroix for dinner. Can someone answer a question about the tasting menu? Specifically, how many items from the menu to you get to taste, or do you get a sample of what is on the menu that night? I understand the four course menu, but wanted a bit of clarification on the tasting menu. Thanks.
