A word from Crossroads
Crossroads refines the Los Angeles dining scene, and is helmed by culinary trail blazer, Chef Tal Ronnen. Highlighting small plate dining with a Mediterranean influence, Crossroads features the cuisine that Ronnen is famous for; beautifully presented plant based dishes that are flavorful and innovative. A rotating selection of custom-made libations, artisanal small batch spirits, and a thoughtfully crafted wine list complement the fare. The imaginative and ever-changing menu with dishes approached with a conscience manner, is inspired by seasonal Southern California ingredients. Continued

  • "This was our second visit to Crossroads and Everything was delicious again. Our server Maisie made great suggestions that added to our enjoyment. Top notch! Will definitely have the spinach salad again"
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "I felt like everything was made with love. From my Moscow mule to the strawberry shortcake. We were constantly eyeing the food arriving at the table next to us as well. And they kept doing the same until we all starting talking about how we will try what the other had on our next visit. We will definitely be back soon."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Overall enjoyable dining experience with fresh and well prepared food. While I understand that the format is based on tapas, the portions were simply too small. The service was good and the waitstaff attentive."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "The food was decent, the ambience was up to par. However, within five minutes of signing our check we were rudely asked to leave our table. The hostess and GM were rude and brusque with us when we voiced our displeasure. I would not recommend this place to others on account of the disrespectful demeanor that the staff takes toward patrons."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "The food was tasty and filling. My favorite dishes included the crab cakes and the lasagna. The service was superb!"

  • "Being a vegan, Crossroads is my favorite restaurant. So many vegan places are cafe like and casual, but this one has a full bar, ambiance, great service and most importantly, great food! My meat eating husband and many of my meat eating friends also love this place! Great place to go at night to socialize with friends!"

  • "Wanting to take our Vegan friend to a more upscale place for a nice meal led us to Crossroads. My meat loving husband enjoyed every bite, from the Hearts of Palm Calamari to the Scallopini Moutarde. Beet Salad with Almond Cheese and Cheese plate were both good starters. Good mouth feel to the cheese. Lasagna was as good as any that I've had on The Hill in St. Louis. Great to go into a Vegan place that isn't too flower child/mother earth kind of ambiance. Very nice interior, and fairly priced. It appeared to me that everyone in the broad mix of patrons was enjoying their meal. Nice cocktail selection and the carrot cake ice cream was delish! The staff was friendly and proud of their offerings. Will definitely go again."

  • "What a fabulous restaurant! I'm vegan and want EXCELLENT food, which is what Crossroads does... but it's such great food that non-vegans/vegetarians will love it just as much! The chef and one of the owners (not Tal, which would have been extra fun had he been there) came to our table to see how our evening was going. It's so popular, it's a bit noisy in areas, but the ambience/decor is beautiful!."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "I was impressed that a VEGAN fine dining restaurant was thriving to this degree. You need a reservation to get a table. The food was creative and delicious. The portions are small, but rich and worth it."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "Really interesting restaurant with imaginative vegan cuisine. Not an extensive number of items on the menu. Portions are small and come very quickly, so I'd recommend multiple sequential orders family style to try everything out. Server was highly professional and friendly. I will definitely return to this place!"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "I'd read about it in VegNews and was beyond excited to give it a try. So my hubby and I trucked it up to LA for our anniversary and this was on the "must do" list. It's small plates and this is a VERY GOOD THING! Why? Because you get to try a lot of what you're hoping to on the menu. Although we wanted to of course try everything. Maybe next time we'll make that happen ;) Allergen note, a lot of their dishes are "nut" based so if you have any allergies, be sure to speak up. If you get a stellar waiter like we did, they'll be sure to mention this. Lastly, while we've been to some amazing cafe-type vegan eateries, perhaps the most exciting thing about this place is that it makes you feel FANCY. Go. Enjoy. Keep this place in business!"

  • "Great atmosphere and vibe. Had the flat bread with 3 spreads..bread was good but it didn't need salt and didn't like any of the spreads. Cheese plate was good, loved the "blue cheese" spread and brown bread and raisins on the vine. Two other white "cheeses" had no flavor. Loved the arugula salad with grapefruit! Enjoyed the "calamari" which was actually hearts of palm. Creative! Chocolate mousse for dessert was yummy as were the special cocktails although pricey at $15. Wrote in my reservation that it was a birthday and told the person who seated us. Nothing happened until I told another person after dessert that it was a birthday. Then they took action and brought two lovely glasses of champagne on the house! Better late than never."

  • "Food was so good my date and I literally did not leave a morsel on any of the plates! The spinach appetizer & lasagna entree both tasted "meaty" without the meat! LOVED IT! Only negatives...the hostess put us at a back room table which feels like your missing out on the ambiance and even though we were in the back room it was still very noisy. I can't imagine how loud it was in the main room. Other than that GREAT FOOD & highly recommend."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "We loved this restaurant! We were there on a Tuesday night and it was alive and happening with an eclectic mix of diners including rock stars (thus the Hollywood location). The menu was healthy and outstanding. Plates are small like tapas and best to share so you can order many items and please your palette. Even dessert was vegan although you'd never know it by the taste. The ambiance is beautiful and making reservations a month in advance landed us a great table! We will definitely come back when we are in LA again!"

  • "I had been wanting to try this restaurant ever since it opened and it was worth the wait! Every dish was incredible and it was nice to see the Chef actually there and walking around the restaurant. Can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "I went to Crossroads for my uncle's birthday. It was the first time for all of us, and the food was incredible! Every bite was a treat, and each course was better than the last (I highly recommend the risotto). If you have any food allergies or sensitivities, the staff is very accommodating to dietary needs. We all want to come back soon!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Easily the best vegan dining experience & food in the country!!! Every dish is amazing and it's so good that even my most hard-core meat eating and dairy loving friends don't miss the meat & dairy!! The nightly celeb sightings make for fun people-watching too**"
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Food great. Service very helpful. Menu highly creative. The plates are on the small side. They recommend you order 3 to 4 each. At a minimum of $10 per plate that can add up very fast. The wine menu is also on the expensive side."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "The vegan food was extremely creative not to mention delicious. The presentation was as beautiful as the food was on the palate. Very fun to try small tastings, but left a little hungry after sharing eight small plates with two friends. I've been a vegetarian for many years, but would never be able to recreate the amazing flavors and consistencies. Very cool experience as it's something you really can't do at home!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "I have been to Crossroads many times, just seems to be not as good as in the past. The menu has not changed much in a year, at the very minimum they should update their menu making it a fresh experience for those who have been there. I would say the food is good, not great. Ambiance is good.. overall it is good, not great."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "We loved Crossroads.!!!! The service was impeccable and the food was simply out of this world. We actually went back to eat dinner again the next night. What a dream to be able to order anything on the menu and not have to ask about the ingredients. My husband and I are vegans and our children are lifelong vegetarians. Kudos to the chef. This restaurant feels like a big victory for vegans and for all others, it's a wonderful introduction to the joys of a plant based diet!"
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "It was my 2nd time here, and I brought 3 non-vegans. I love seeing the looks on their faces when they taste the food. It really is inventive and interesting. My favorites ... The 'oysters', tomato fennel , and pappardelle bolognese. The service was really helpful and friendly, and we were seated promptly on a Fri night, but the resturant was bustling. A nice eclectic crowd. We really enjoyed it... Nice to have an upscale vegan resturant in town ."

  • "One of my top five restaurants in LA! The food is fantastic and very creative. My favorites include the olive sampler and the tortelloni. The drinks are awesome too. Very impressive!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "I went here on a mid-week (Wednesday). I am not a Vegan, but was open to a dining experience and familiar with Vegan food. This place provides a good dining experience both Vegans and non-Vegans. It is very LA and a bit of a scene - just be in that mood. It didn't feel too crowded even thought I know they were very busy that night. The food was interesting and flavorful. I would definitely go back just to try different dishes. Interesting menu & plates are fun to share. I loved the Kale salad. The only thing that was slightly off was that we had a reservation at 9:15 and got there at 9:20 and they couldn't sit us for 15 minutes. I wouldn't want to have that happen with a client. My Vegan friend loves their food! I would go back."

  • "Loud, disorganized, and rude. Average food and terrible dessert"
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "I love Crossroads! I am not Vegan, but this food is delicious. I have never tried something I was disappointed with. Their banana bread pudding dessert is to die for! The crab cakes are my other favorite."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "This food is spectacular. Yes, it is vegan, but it's vegan like you'd never imagine. Tal Ronnen has hit on something very special and very forward. I wish all chefs would adopt his culinary approach. I seriously could eat like this everyday!"
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "Crossroads is an excellent vegetarian restaurant in LA. The food is very tasty and unique. It is fun to get lots of small plates and share with your friends. It is a fun place to go for a night out."

  • "I decided to skip watching the Oscars and go to Crossroads for a tasty gourmet meal and a glass of wine, but who really cares when PAUL MCCARTNEY is sitting at the table right next to mine!!! Enough said."

  • "For those of you who turn your nose up to vegan fare,Please don't try to expand your horizons here,reservations are hard enough...Food is Amazing and Ambiance is spot on. Dining with Sir Paul and Señor Grohl,Priceless!!!"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "I have been coming here since they opened... This restaurant has it all. The ambiance is amazing... The food is spectacular... Great service... There is a full bar, and the wine list superb... And, the best thing about it is that you are eating Real Food, everything is vegan... Gourmet vegan... If you are lucky enough to get a reservation, take it!"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Reservation for 8:45p but did not get seated until 9:15p. Asked to wait at the bar but there was no seating at the bar and anywhere you stood nearby you were in the way of service staff. I am not at all a vegan but completely enjoyed the four items we ordered. However, the portions were quite small and/or the prices were rather high. The spinach ravioli was delicious but five small ravioli for $14.00 was pricey. And when encouraging folks to share dishes, an odd number of pieces, in this case five ravioli, just does not make sense."

  • "Meal was fantastic. SO much better than most vegan restos. Usually food is too "substitutey", too heavy....this food was not that at all, rather, it was completely inventive, amazing, delicious. I loved it. Our service was very mediocre, the waiter was running around and barely paid attention to us, not really a fan of him at all. For a meal at this price point, I expect somebody to take their time at our table, come by once or twice to check on us...not make us chase him down when we need something."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "Loved the restaurant - the space, lighting, the buzz. Friendly and fun staff. Food was good but not outstanding in my opinion. I am not a vegan though FYI."

  • "Anyone/Everyone should just go...experience how awesome this food and drinks are!"

  • "The food and service was excellent, the only negative is the price for the portion size."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Everything we tasted was like nothing I've ever eaten before -- truly an innovative vegan dining experience. The Bloomsdale Spinach Salad was so good, we ordered a second. The Truffle Leek flatbread had so many layers of complex flavor, and the truffle flavor was just right, not overpowering. We also ordered the Artichoke Oysters (incredible), the spiced chick peas, and the roasted baby fennel. That was just the right amount of food for four, with everyone getting a generous portion. I could eat here every night. Also, the celebrity sightings are top notch, welcome to Hollywood."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "The food was all delicious, plant-based creations, but the portion sizes were very minimal. For example the tortellini had 4 pieces on a plate with a little sauce and garnish. Be prepared to order quite a few dishes (3-4) per person and that means your bill will add up quickly. The drinks were also very small. A vodka on the rocks was probably no more than 3 oz and much less than a half a glass. The wine was in a huge glass but again a very small pour. But regardless of these things the place was packed (on a Thursday night) not an empty table or bar stool anywhere, with many standing at the door waiting for a seat. Paparazzi were waiting outside for a glimpse of the celebrities inside. It's a hot spot, for a price!"
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Food was excellent and very tasty - all Vegan. Only criticism would be that the hostess failed to notify the wait staff that we were seated, so we waited for some time for even a glass of water."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "Disappointing experience -- yet the food met all expectations. Waited nearly 20 mins before our waiter came over to the table all the while the manager and hostesses were walking around floor ignoring us. Biggest complaint -- the lighting is TOO LOW and we could barely see what we were eating. Flashlight apps were needed to read the menu for all in our party and at many tables. Regardless, the food was very good and I will come again and hope for truly a first-class dining experience as this restaurant has been billed. Also Ronnen was in the house considering he is recognizable in food circles, it would have been nice if he did a walk through to greet us other guests and not just the one table he went to."
