About Crossings

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.

I enjoyed a delicious dinner with 5 friends. We had a table on a Saturday on the second floor which was a quiet location at 5:30 pm. My friends enjoyed a martini and ordered duck and steak entrees off the DineLA winter 2018 menu. I ordered my favorite on the regular menu, Goldline Chicken. Service was attentive and efficient.

This is a fantastic restaurant! The food was delicious, the service was great and the atmosphere was beautiful in this great old brick building. We were celebrating an Anniversary and they were so sweet to leave a present and card on the table when we arrived. Incredibly thoughtful. We will definitely return to this great restaurant.

My wife and I went to try out the dine LA menu tonight. The duck was fantastic. Apparently the chef worked on the dish for 2 months. I would also recommend the wine pairings. We will definitely be back to try their regular menu.

The food at Crossings is always very good. Service is stellar. There aren’t many restaurants in the area that are at this caliber. It’s a great date place also as the ambience is romantic and comfy. I visit here often.

We tried the Dine LA menu and the portions were very small and tasted okay. I heard other customers who felt the same. I felt bad for my guests because I chose the location. The hostess and others were very polite and welcoming but the server was MIA....took our order and we hardly saw him afterward. I expected more and should have read the reviews more carefully. It's a beautiful restaurant but I wish the food/service were the same level.

We had looked forward to dining her with great anticipation. But the open kitchen is a truly fatal flaw in this place. From the start we could not hear each other for all the slamming of pots and clanging of metal. IT'S REALLY LOUD!!!! And not with the energetic chatter of a lively urban crowd (the diners were mostly old) -- but with the annoying, make-you-jump clamor of metal on metal. After five minutes we joked that they'd hired someone to drop a pile of cookie sheets every twenty seconds. After ten minutes our nerves were truly jangled. We ate as fast as we could and got the hell out never to return.

The waiter was terrific, the sort of place you expect when paying $40 an entree, but the food was not quite up to that level. This neighborhood supports enough rich people that you can get away with sub-par food and still get a clientele who, for variety, will keep coming (Bistro de la Gare); but with the Raymond and Shiro nearby, both of which have terrific food, there's no need to cheat yourself of gustatory delight in this area and at this price-point.

Refined atmosphere and attention to detail.

We had the “dine LA” menu with the wine pairing and it felt like a good value overall.

The beef tartare was excellent - this was the high point. The duck à “l’orange” on the other hand was hit and miss: the thicker breast was undercooked, and as a result a little too chewy: both of us dining had the same experience. In fact, I was a little surprised to be asked how we wanted to have the duck cooked. There was little else on the plate but a purée to counter the chewy texture. Finally, the lemon tart and carrot pudding were good but both felt a little underwhelming.

Celebrated annual get together with close friends that I don’t see often but find time to once a year get together and celebrate our great friendship. My second time to reserve at this place. Extremely satisfied and more with my first. This recent experience was not up to par with our expectation. Everything was great except for our server. She’s not really very interactive we felt like were imposing on her. We felt that we are being rushed with out r orders. We ask here to take a picture a simple request that I’m pretty sure a lot do but we have to wait 40 min before it got taken and even with that it was not too pleasant! Don’t get me wrong, we still had a great time but if your server is having a rough not....it reverberates in the service that’s being provided! Would we visit again! Absolutely urs but most likely will stay away from that specific server!

The only thing that really annoyed me was how the hostess greeted us, and that she denied to change our table (most tables were open) and gave us a long face and awkward silence when we asked her to do so. This incident ruined the night despite the great food and service.

Tables are very close. Cozy equals cramped. Food was mediocre. My wife's flat iron steak was more tender than my filet mignon. My green beans were raw and had no seasoning. My wife was disappointed in her bock choy; again no seasoning. I had a salad which was pretty good but not outstanding. Dessert was pretty good. Service was good, but not outstanding.

Went to this restaurant entirely because of Open Table reviews. Searching for a restaurant close to where we were staying and this caught my eye! Was not disappointed! From drinks, to appetizers, to entrees, to desserts.....everything was delicious! Would recommend and would return when in the area!

Had a great experience. Great service and food. Sat next to a table of eight and still were able to have a quiet conversation. Everything we ordered was cooked to perfection. I strongly recommend the skirt steak and the Oysters Rockefeller as well as the sea bass.

We made reservations with a special request for a table upstairs in the front. The reservation was made 2 weeks ahead. When we got there they had no idea about the special request regarding a table. whether this is the fault of Open Table or the restaurant we do not know but it but a damper on the visit.
The food was excellent as we have come to expect - this was probably our sixth visit.

I love Crossings and the individual service and attention given by the owner Patrick. He is knowledgeable about his food and an expert in smaller wineries which makes his wine list impressive. Reliably delicious and now they have a happy hour from 5-7 where delicious items such as crab tostada, pulled pork sliders and deviled eggs are 6 dollars. Delicious!! Will have to head back for happy hour sometime soon!

This was 3 frmale friends getting together to catch up. We did it on Sunday at 10:00 a.m. It was quiet and we enjoyed ourselves. Food was great and we all agreed that we would order it again. Our waiter and the staff were great and as they were not busy we got extra attention (but not to much). If their are any drawbacks...1) parking and 2) although it was a lovely day and they appeared to have a nice patio it backs up to the Goldline train which passed by fairly frequently even on Sunday.

This was one of the worst experiences I've had at any restaurant, but especially at this price point. I'm usually fairly understanding with mistakes, or food being slightly under par. I get that mistakes happen. But this night was atrocious in every aspect. We ultimately left feeling bloated because of the Chinese food takeout-level sodium levels, and the mood for the night was ruined because of the painfully awkward and long experience from beginning to end.
