Outstanding overall. Only disappointed was, when I made reservations I had asked for a very nice table for a 50th bday celebration, we wound up in the wine room up against a wall. Worst table in that room for sure. The best ambiance by far is in the larger dining room where it's open and beautiful. Felt like they could've/should've done much better than what we got for a special occasion. But the food is absolutely amazing and have no complaints there! Can't wait to go back.

This has got to be our favorite restaurant of all time. Every bite is happy poetry in my mouth. Every bite is a celebration that the most exquisite food can be enjoyed without harming a single soul.
I could never adequately put into words, how wonderful Crossroads Kitchen is. Each dish is like a song that you love. Lighting is great, music is classic rock hip, service is great and efficient.
This restaurant truly is a divine Crossroads where gorgeous and delicious cuisine meets cruelty-free, evolved consciousness.
Yes, our FAVE restaurant ever.

We were delighted by our dinner. The vegetarian menu is sophisticated, inventive, and varied and all of the dishes we had were presented beautifully. The server recommended 2-3 small plates per person, which turned out to be just right for our party of four. Most of the dishes were hits, including tortellini, a paella-style risotto, "pickled" vegetables, a plate of superb grilled mushrooms, and a delightful ginger-apricot tart for dessert. Only a kooky and vaguely peanut-flavored "chocolate" cake was a miss. Service was cheerful and mostly excellent, the one annoyance being a weird attempt to upsell wine: the server spent time describing how it was important to match wine with the dishes we chose, then went ahead and recommended one of the more expensive wines on the list before we'd chosen any dishes at all. The ambiance is very pleasant. All told, a pleasant evening.

The most amazing plant-based experience you will have. However, you don’t go because the food is plant-based; you go simply because the food is incredible. The setting and service have a perfect balance of elevated sophistication and chill accessibility - making it cool and laid back, yet special and upscale. I absolutely love this restaurant! (Charred ricotta, impossible cigars, kale cesar, meatball pizza, pasta carbonara, and especially - Chicken Parm(!) - are among my favorites!)

Our server was great, when he got to us, but he was way too busy throughout our time there. We waited a very long time for ordering and then a very long time for our drinks...and this was lunch at the end of their service hours.

The place itself is lovely, and the food fun and delicious. I’d love to try the dinner menu.

Fabulous food. Friendly but flustered and useless waiter. Not as crowded as I expected, yet drinks order was delayed until after the mains arrived, which arrived sporadically before starters arrived. When the drinks did almost arrive they were dropped on some other patrons a few tables down from us. Cramped environment. I recommend getting take out, the food is amazing.

My husband and i came here for our date night for dinner. From the very beginning our whole experience went left. We arrive 10 minutes early for our reservation and I felt like i was waiting a table at like the cheesecake factory, both hostesses were unwelcoming just like “hey whats your name.” We were not seated until 5 minutes after our reservation time. After we sit down we receive the normal speech about the daily specials and are advised about which items are no longer available. I asked the waitress about the pasta dish on special, as it was a truffle dish and i was concerned about the saltiness. We were thinking of ordering something else, but she recommended this truffle dish.She said it was very light in salt. We receive our dishes and everything is good, with the exception of the truffle pasta . The pasta was sticky and not cooked well, no sauce, no flavor... I’ve had better top ramen in college. But we are not into sending things back so we did not complain. After dessert we receive the bill, turns out this pasta is $65. Nothing on the menu here is over $30 a dish. Secondly, the waitress never mentions this. When we ask her why she did not tell us about the price, she dismissively states that she did tell us and walks away from the table. Im sure she herself could not afford this dish. Im not mad about the money. We have money. We dont like being treated like we should feel privileged to dine at Crossroads. To be treated so dismissively and as if our patronage doesn’t matter, from the minute we got there, and by the waitress, is why we will never come here again. There are far too many other great restaurants in LA.

This was our first time at Crossroads. I took my wife as a surprise to her, she’s vegetarian, and I’m a foodetarian, and this spot was amazing to my wife and there wasn’t really anything I had that I wouldn’t have again. Service was great and music played was perfect bundle of 80’s flashbacks. Will be going again sometime soon I’m sure and try the lunch menu. We went for dinner.

We had a 7:45pm reservation for 4ppl but weren’t seated for over 20 Mins past our rez time. We are in the hospitality business too. No offer to buy a round of drinks or anything and hostess never checked with us to update on table; we had to keep checking with her. Food was great as always (we have been many times before) but one of our dishes never came and waiter never noticed (we alerted him) Service was below-average. A drink was forgotten (despite repeated reminder); share plates were only cleared/replaced when asked; we ordered a bottle of wine but after the first glass was poured our server never bothered to replenish our glasses during the meal (despite our bottle being on ice just across the room). He also left the cork and corkscrew on the table after opening the bottle. Kitchen was also out of a second dish we ordered and waiter blamed the shotty kitchen service on the Head chef Being at an off-site. Service was just sub-par.

I'm not vegetarian, but my biz partner is vegan. We go to Crossroads occasionally to enjoy a night of good food. Of all the veg/vegan options I've tried in LA this is hands-down the most delicious, and also the most expensive. On this particular night our server was Michael. He was attentive, friendly, and suggested some dishes I hadn't tried before. Great guy. Overall, this is not a cheap meal in any capacity, and you ultimately get what you pay for in terms of service (AWESOME), ambiance (upscale Hollywood, trendy, but without annoying wannabes), selection (some of the most creative vegan takes on dishes I've encountered), quality (every dish is an incredible celebration of taste and ingenuity), and drinks (love the wine, LOVE the cocktails even more). Even if you're not a vegetarian or vegan, you have to try Crossroads. It's an experience. Perfect place for a romantic date, small group of close peers, or a break-the-ice business meeting to celebrate. Make sure you try the onion soup, the beef cigars, and the oysters. AMAZING

The ambiance and design of the restaurant was beautiful. That being said, though the food was quite inspired, I do wish the finer ingredients used were a bit more apparent to the palate., Presentation was gorgeous, but flavors could have been more impactful.

I also, as a solo female diner, was put behind a wall to dine, in the literally empty dining area, which I find to be an extremely off-putting and gauche practice of many fine dining establishments recently.

Everything was quite good, except the fact that it is overpriced. All the portions are very small and if you want to have a normal dinner you will pay quite a bit as you have to order 2 or 3 dishes at least. I had three and I am not a big eater. Still nice, though.

Came here for my girlfriend’s birthday. Service, ambiance, and food were all excellent. Dishes run on the smaller side, but that only allows you to try more. Expect to spend about $60-$75/person and you’ll have an amazing experience. We got five dishes and desert, but the highlights were the Impossible cigars, the carbonara, and the chocolate desert. Additionally we got the half bottle of cab, which come served in burgundy glasses; that I highly recommend as well.

Horrible experience... the waitress was god awful and was rude, sad faced and even the people who brought the food seemed totally inexperienced. Even when ordering our food our guest had asked if they could take tomato sauce from a different dish and put it on a pasta that did not have their vegan butter on it and the managers answer was we don’t do that ever. We don’t modify anything ever, it our chef he explained lol. The funny thing was I was with a famous chef to the stars and he was upset at their every move.!!! I simply told him to take one sauce from one plate and put it on the a diff pasta dish, that was hardly modifying ? What a bunch of wannabes... this place gets a huge fail. Never ever again, might as well call this place TOAST or JokerVille.. another trendy spot set to fail because of BAD attitudes and mediocre food. Another on bites the dust... and then some....

The service was appalling. We made an 8:30pm reservation and wasn't seated until 45mins later. Initially, the hostess said our table was ready as soon we had bumped into a friend who just walked in the restaurant, we couldn't be rude in stopping the conversation, and without waiting or informing us, the hostess ended up immediately giving our table away and we had to wait another 20mins. The manager and hostess did not apologize for doing that, even though they did offer a complementary drink for waiting, they did not seem apologetic at all. Terrible service for what was a highly recommended place to dine, the food ended up being decent but we wouldn't go back there. Plenty of other great restaurants with better services in West Hollywood area!

Trendy and hip. Tables were crowded together and noise level was high. Food was half excellent and half disappointing. The beet citrus salad, scallopini Milanese and ginger blood orange (?) tart were excellent. The potato leek soup was so salty as to be inedible and otherwise quite average in flavor; the oven roasted truffle potatoes were unpleasantly oily and soggy but the flavor was nice, and the chocolate cake had too much filling/frosting in proportion to the actual cake part which was delicious, as was the accompanying chocolate fig ice cream which was outstanding. Our server was well informed and attentive and the empty plates were cleared away very promptly. I’d go back again but with a lot more discretion and attention to what I ordered.
