Late Sunday brunch at Lacroix?

Is it worth doing Sunday brunch at Lacroix if the only reservation we can get is 1:45PM? Brunch runs until 2:30PM. Is all the good stuff gone by then, and will we feel under pressure to finish up quickly?

  1. You will not be slighted in the least. They are first class and everything will be amazing.

    1. Had the late seating twice, will not redo. Things were getting a bit tired and as we were there a long time, stuff was being broken down before we got to it. l am sure they would have given us whatever we wished, but compared to an early seating, big difference. It is one of my two fav buffets in the country but l would not do late, just my personal opinion.

        Wow Deluca! That is disappointing to hear. We have arrived for a 1:30 reservation a few times and have not had that experience. We tend to book for holiday occasions, and that could make a difference.

      2. Had brunch there recently and saw several parties arrive at 1:30 or later. From what we observed
        there was still plenty of everything and the service was first class. Although we arrived a little after noon, many folks came in later. Brunch was excellent in every way.

        1. Went recently and could only get a 2 pm reservation. I had the same worry, but everything was completely wonderful. We stayed for 2.5 hours, and nothing was broken down, nor were we rushed.

          Ask for a seat at the window with a view of Rittenhouse Square!

            Went to brunch last month at 1:30. There was plenty of food. The staff was constantly adding food until we left at 3pm. There was no difference from last year when we went at 12 noon.
