Crossings restaurant is located in the beautiful historic Edwards and Faw building on Mission St. in South Pasadena, originally built in 1908. Crossings utilized the beautiful brick and mortar structure to inspire a classic American restaurant space. The downstairs dining room encompasses a fully open kitchen and 14 foot ceilings. A patio under a 100 year old oak sits right next to the Metro Gold Line, providing a truly urban space not often found in LA. A wine loft sits between the first and second floors, offering a wide variety of choices. Two bars, one on each floor, offer hand crafted cocktails as well as barrel aged selections made in house by our bartenders.

We went for brunch. The chilaquiles I ordered did not disappoint. French roast and pancakes with quest fresco looked good.

The servers were very gracious and responsive. There was a mix up with opentable showing us as a no show, it it wasn’t the fault of the restaurant.

We sat outside which was wRm thanks to heat lamps.

FANTASTIC food - the service was great as well.
Get the burger exactly as it comes, it's one of the best burgers I've ever had!

Crossings has a new chef! I've been a patron from the beginning and have enjoyed Crossings but this new chef really changed things up in a positive way. Since he is still considered new the menu is not as extensive but what he has is amazing. My husband and I started with a dozen oysters mignonette. I had the Uni Carbonara which is probably one of the most delicious and balanced dishes I have had in a long time!! It blew my mind! My husband had the Hamachi collar (one of his favorites at a sushi bar) and said it was amazing. The owner Patrick per usual was delightful and very knowledgeable with is extensive and excellent wine list and paired the dishes perfectly. Patrick informed us that as they master the dishes on the menu they will add more. There are currently about 6-7 main dishes, several appetizers and sides. Just the uni carbonara is worth returning very soon. BRAVO!

We've been to Crossings many times and sadly we were pretty disappointed on this trip especially because it was for our Valentines day. It had nothing to do with the ambiance overall, it had everything to do with their new very limited menu. We both ordered the Wagyu Belly, which was only ok and fairly tough even at med rare. There were no longer any poultry options, vegetarian options besides some appetizers and salads, and very minimal fish options as well. I'm honestly not sure we will return when there are so many other great options in the Pasadena Area with a far more diverse menu. I don't mind a limited menu, but at least make it more diverse.

What a Valentines day! I made reservation thru Open Table over a week ago for tonight. When we showed up, hostess were showing me a outside table. We had problem with it, because it was colder than I liked and food will get cold easily. The hostess said that there is no other table inside for us. They proceed to argue several times with me that they called me yesterday to confirm and I agreed to the outside table. I told them I never received the 'phone call' and I received a text message stating "your table for 3 is booked at Crossings... Please respond '1' to confirm or '9' to cancel" So, I responded as '1' There was no information about the outside sitting in the text. I told them to check my phone log and showed the text. Luckily, I saved the text to show them. You think they will accept customer evidence and apologize? NO, they ignored me to help another customers. The manager happened to see me and came over to give us table within minutes.

The waiter service was good.

Food - Tried two 18 ounce Ribeye for $75 each for our dinner, the most expensive item. Portion does not appear to be 18 ounce like the menu said. Not enough to share with 2 adults. like the flavor of ribeye.

We agree that we will not be going back to the place. Not worth it for hostess service we got. Prepare to show evidence of your communication with them about the reservation, otherwise, you may not get the table you want. Otherwise, if you want get the table, confirm in person or make call yourself.

Went for Valentines Day and was shocked to learn that the menu and chef changed the week prior. The new Menu is very limited and not for everyone. The couple who were sitting next to us was so disappointed in their meals they did not eat them and left early. This of course caused us to worry about what was coming. We ordered the basic salad since the appetizer selection was nothing special for us and it was pretty basic for 15 dollars. Our meals arrived and they were good but nothing that would make us rush back. Sad that the change took place - loved dining there with friends but not sure this change is style will help them. The staff are great there - as are the cocktails - but the menu is not something I think many will like.

I always love going to Crossings - the drinks, service and ambiance are perfect. The food is very good, always, but my last visit I felt the menu was too heavily weighted towards fatty meats and fishes. There wasn't a single vegetarian entree option and the entree options were all high fat. I don't expect Crossings to embrace "Spa cuisine" but a little more variety in terms of healthy entrees would be good. I love this restaurant so I hate to dock them even one point for this but I actually found it hard to choose my food the last time I was in and I'd hesitate to go back because of this so for me, the current menu just doesn't deserve 5 stars.

This was my second visit to Crossings for brunch.
The service was excellent as well as the eggs Benedict
It was our first time sitting on the patio and the train passing close by was somewhat loud. Would recommend seating inside.
We will return soon

Very nice ambiance, and friendly and attentive wait staff. Cocktails were imaginative but unfortunately the food was not. Crossings has a very limited menu selection that won't appeal to many. Nice presentation, yet the beef choice was chewy and lacked flavor. The price is on the high end, so that created an expectation that just wasn't met. There are too many competitors a short distance that offer the complete package. The new chef (menu just changed) hasn't captured the essence of what the restaurant could be - perhaps with time and some maturation, hopefully driven by their clientele and an astute proprietor.
