    Our service was brilliant. Our table was great. Our food was fine to good. Our bill was a little much for what we received. The best item we had that evening was the potatoes. There were three of us; my husband enjoyed the Spicy Chickpeas and our son wasn't impressed with his pasta and truffles dish. However, he appreciated the dessert. Respectfully, Lisa

    Most of the dishes were excellent. Nice array of flavors! We would definitely go back. Unfortunately our main server was not the friendliest. She answered our questions and served our plates as if she was irritated, albeit with a taut smile. Her attitude made the evening less enjoyable. At one point my daughter asked her a question regarding a menu item and instead of simply answering politely the server said, in an accusatory tone, " I thought you said you've been here before". What kind of comment is that??????Pretty rude! Must include that we are not overly demanding clients, nor was the restaurant extremely busy. My daughter, a strict vegan for many years, chose Crossroads for her birthday celebration.

    We had a reservation for 8pm for 2- we asked to add 1 person and they said we couldn’t get in until 9p then. We didn’t get seated until 9:36 and there was zero apologies until we complained 3 times. We felt ignored by the hostess. I think if you aren’t going to be seated well past your reservation you should be notified or check in with the patron. We sat at the bar and were ignored while others walking in from the street were seated. The food was amazing and our server was pleasant but what an awful experience.

    Amazing food, but the prices are way to high for the amount of food you are getting. Highly recommend for a anniversary expensive dinner but definitely not a regular spot due to the fact that the prices are way to high.

    We recently discovered this place, and have since brought many friends to dine and experiance the amazing food. My only negative feedback, is that every time we go, we are seated in strange "rooms" off of the main beautiful dining area. These "rooms" are dark, cold, and the acoustics of one of them was so bad I could not hear my husband seated next to me. Sitting next to a drunk birthday girl in a curved ceiling room means no one will be able to hear anything but her. Just some feedback, since the food is amazing and we want to keep coming back!

    My fiancé and I have eaten at crossroads before and absolutely loved it! Last night the food was so nasty it was embarrassing. I couldn’t pretend to like it because my face said it all. We had been sitting for about 5 min when our waitress started rushing us to order. She asked if we need help ordering which I though was a weird question, so we said no and asked for another minute. She came back literally in another minute and asked if we needed help yet, so I explained that I was trying to decide between the “FETTUCCINE CARBONARA” and the “LASANGA” and she said fettuccine for sure, so I accepted her suggestion. The food came quick which was shocking considering how crowded it was. Visually the pasta looked OK. I noticed the pool of water it was floating in and immediately got put off. When I tasted it I started getting mad because it was luke warm, the pasta was hard and clumped together, the sauce had NO flavor whatsoever, and the peas were so hard and raw. It was nauseating to eat the slimy hard pasta! To be such an expensive dish, I had wildly high expectations. I should have sent the plate back or asked it to be taken off my bill, but I didn’t want to cause a scene.. My fiancé’s pizza was amazing so I’m glad he was able to enjoy something. He ordered a brownie sunday for desert which was equally disappointing. The brownie was bitter and hard. There was way so much salted caramel all over it. After this meal, it’s so hard to say if we will ever come back..

    We were looking for an upscale vegan dinner and chose Crossroads. We had a wonderful experience as the staff was friendly and attentive and the food was wonderful. We had a total of 9 dinner items and 1 dessert with only 1 item not being to our preference; not that was bad, rather just not to our taste preference.

    I've been to this restaurant several times, but this last time was not their best. The server was inexperienced and did a constant up-sell (don't you want a bottle of wine instead?) It tired me out frankly, and she was not attentive or well-versed in the food. It was too bad as it was my birthday, and it was just OK. Food still shines, but I won't be as eager to return.
