Second Thanksgiving dining at La Croix. The holiday buffet included not only turkey but numerous appetizers, sides and desserts. What a treat

Visited yesterday evening and have to say it was excellent. Matt and Scott on the floor were awesome. Other staff just as great. We were last to leave and they were really patient as we slowly finished up. Just great food and great service.

This is an extremely elegant dining experience - the Conductor of the Philadelphia Harmonic Orchestra was seated with his family next to us. It was an excellent experience except for the final course which was exceptionally dry - not an expectation for pheasant. Service and attentiveness by all were outstanding as was the dinner except as noted above.

Located at treetop level in the Rittenhouse Hotel this is probably the highest rated restaurant in Philadelphia. The cuisine is always interesting and the setting and service perfect. I visit here on regular basis and be sure to book their terrific Buffets especially on holidays. They are truly spectacular and will impress your guests

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.
