The food was good, but quite a few misses (buttersquash, yuck; the beef was pretty bad), the service was not that great – no steak knife for the meat (especially considering how stringy it was). Good view, good ambiance; food wise – not worth it. Between the two of us, we had pretty much everything on the tasting menu that night. The fish (dory I think) was pretty good, as was 3 hour hen egg.

My husband found a hair in his food and the management chose to do nothing about it except offer us a free dessert, lol, which was PART OF THE PACKAGE anyway.

We may stay at the Rittenhouse again, but we won't be dining at LaCroix.

This is an unbelievable restaurant. We were treated like queens. The food is superb. You have to try Lacroix at least once.
