Can't say enough about the brunch here. One actually goes into the kitchen and the buffet is manned there by chefs. Everything from raw fish to omelettes, carving stations, etc, etc. Fantastic desserts also

This is really a great restaurant. Each dish (including the 2 amuse) were excellent. We have been to a lot of so called great restaurants that disappoint. Lacroix exceeded our expectations.

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).
