    This hot spot is best enjoyed with a group so you can order virtually everything on the menu. The food is creative, flavorful and satisfying, and when paired with good wines, the experience is unforgettable. Standouts include the cheese plate, the lasagna, the crab cakes, the oysters, truffle fettuccine, kale Caesar, I could go on and on. Almost every dish is exceptional. Treat yourself and go with good friends.

    Dined on 9/14/2014
    I dine out often and I am only moved to write should something be particulalry bad. This was great. The food was excellent as was the atmosphere. I give tremendous kudos for the fun menu and cheeky titles of the entrees lending to a non-vegan dish, although all dishes are vegan. It was entertaining to have the "oysters" served as half shell on artichokes. It really was inventive, delicious, and should satisfy any vegetarian protester as an a LA dining hotspot. Round of applause. PS- I'm not a vegan or vegetarian and this was more satisfying as an experience than the plethora of all other restaurants I've enjoyed.

    I made reservations ahead for brunch for my birthday. The restaurant also had an event planned ahead during brunch in a private room. They had too many people & found it suitable to put them in the dining room standing at the bar. At times the noise reached levels as loud as a concert. We could not have a conversation without yelling close to each other & it hurt my ears. Then the event started making announcements of which bar is hiring for female bartenders etc. This was the oddest, most unprofessional restaurant experience of my life. The waitress called the manager over who said too bad. I will not return since they dont treat patrons with respect, nor care about their experience. Management clearly doesnt know what theyre doing.

    Crossroads is a wonderful restaurant!!! It was great to sit down for a vegan meal and have so many choices - every one was delicious! The staff were anticipating our every course and brought everything so nice and hot. The waitress explained how it all works, Tapas style, so we were able to savor many different delicious dishes. Can't wait to go for brunch too'

    I flew in from Seattle to go here. Unfortunately I was by myself so I couldn't order too much from the menu. My stomach is only so big. I ended up ordering the fire baked meaty lasagna. I have not eaten meat or dairy in a few years, but I do remember what a good hearty lasagna tastes like, and this VEGAN version was to die for!! I could eat this everyday. There is no carnivore out there that could complain about this vegan lasagna. I was very jealous of the people around me who were ordering all sorts of stuff off me menu. Next time I go, I am definitely bringing someone to share the menu with.

    Crossroads continues to amaze me, Brunch on Sundays! I usually come for dinner but recently found out that they had Brunch on Sundays (Which wasn't advertised anywhere but their Instagram page!) I got the "chicken" and waffles and holy wow, super good they season the "chicken" with spices which I really liked and their "butter" and syrup were super tasty it all went so well together! Oh and their chocolate croissants, ridiculously good! You forget that you're eating Vegan. Their quality of food and portions are not over the top and just right!

    The thing to order is the chicken and waffles. The frittata is also good, but very small portion. I love that they have chocolate croissants, but the server said those May be coming off he menu. Coffee could use some improvement, it was not very hot. Roving Bloody Mary cart is a nice touch. Nice place for special occasions.

    They changed their menu. We tried some of the new dishes but felt some fell short of "amazing" like on my previous visit. It was explained to me that the menu changes with the seasons and I guess last time I went it was the previous menu. My favorite this time was the "oysters" made from artichoke leaves. Well balanced, yummy and some of the most interesting of the dishes we tried (I had that last time also so it remained on their menu). Also a pasta dish we tried was more amazing last time also. Still don't get me wrong: this place does AMAZING STUFF all being vegan! Just that my four stars are three this time around...

    We were a couple of newbies at a vegan restaurant, which came highly recommended by a close friend who knows his foodstuff(s). We were both amazed by the variety of dishes available, all of which were vegan, and all of which were outstanding! This is high praise from a dyed-in-the-wool carnivore! Wait-person was epic, explained everything so noobs could understand it, but did not treat us like we were morons -- dry humor did the trick.

    I've been vegan 10 years and have eaten at the best vegan spots from San Francisco to New York. And I think Los Angeles has finally taken over as the best vegan city, with Crossroads leading in the high-end dining experience. My husband, who is not vegan, said our dinner was the best meal he's had in a very long time. Any meal, not just a vegan one.

    I went to this restaurant on the recommendation of one of Ellen's tweets! The food was fantastic but I was a little disappointed in the service. The waitress come across as fake and not interested in us as guests to this restaurant (perhaps because we weren't famous?). The restaurant was not busy so there was no excuse for her delays, lack of friendly interaction. This was the only thing I would recommend the restaurant improve. Other than that I thoroughly enjoyed my experience there.
