Alot of good really unusual, unique food. Its expensive - but worth the price. It is something that everyone should do at least once.

Pleasant and efficient service were the hallmarks of this excellent brunch. Two kinds of fresh oysters and about six other items included in the raw bar was refilled continuously. The appetizer table was a beautiful display of small dishes. The hot flavorful items such as lamb, duck, brisket, pork belly and scallop sausage (to name a few) were inside the kitchen which was novel but be prepared to get bumped into by chefs or kitchen staff. Incredible variety at the dessert table included unusual dishes such as peanut butter jelly mousse and blackberry cheesecake. My all time favorite dessert was the tropical fruit mousse. Flavor burst!!! The appetizer and raw bar was broken down around 3:30pm which was a disappointment as we we told all food would be served until 4:30. This was not an issue for us but if we had arrived later it would have been. Overall awesome brunch!!!

I liked everything about it. It is sexy. The views from the wall of windows allow a beautiful place to experience the change in the seasons. The staff is friendly fast professional and smartly dressed. The presentation of the food was a pretty as it tasted good. The name was changed from the tree house I suppose due to a large tree outside of the window to Lacroix a famous chef that used to work there. Anyway whoever took his place can cook. This is an atmosphere that makes you want to wear a ball gown and get your makeup done by someone else but If you wear your jeans at least please take your baseball cap off and have someone take your picture to remember..

Dear Travillour:

Thank you for your kind words. Our restaurant hopefully appeals to the well dressed as well as the casual. Formerly Treetops, Chef Jean-Marie Lacroix came on board. John Cichon, under Chef Lacroix eventually took the helm and has proven to be a gem.

Thank you for your post it is most appreciated.
