“fantastic brunch”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

we plurged and had Sunday brunch at Lacroix. It is buffet, with mini goodies all of the dining room. It's like being on a scavenger hunt - you walk around finding tables of goodies all over the place, including the kitchen!

“Excellent brunch”
Reviewed 18 April 2012 via mobile

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!!!
