    Phenomenal food! And a great environment - we actually sat at the bar and just really enjoyed the overall experience! Everything we ate - the app - the tuna tartare - the beet salad - the octopus (amazing!) the scallops, lamb chops, and dessert all just so good!

    One of the best meals we've ever had. Our server, Tom, was outstanding, and we liked that the staff worked together as a team. The price is at the high end, but we also had plenty to eat and it was all fantastic. It was quiet in the restaurant, but we went on a Monday when they were less than half full, so I don't know what it's like on a busier night. We would definitely recommend it to others, and we hope to return again in the future.

    Another great meal from Jim Fiala and his team at the Crossing - from the Bleu cheese souffles thru dessert, the food here is delicious, well-prepared and served as intended. Recommend trying the premium tasting menu selections along with a bottle from their cellar - you can't go wrong here. Bring a loved one or dine with good friends for an experience to remember.

    Excellent food, perfectly portioned tasting menu with lots of flexibility. Service was perfect, all the skill and perfect timing of the highest level fine dining, but also down to earth and approachable in a way that was well matched to our relaxed gathering of friends on a Tuesday night. Will gladly make this a regular destination.

    Got the tasting menu, none of the food blew me away but the bread was good and my zero proof mocktail was excellent. The service was fantastic. One in our party did not want garlic, the server went through with her and the chef even came out to verify that the dish would be ok. We were there for a birthday and they had a card on the table. They honored my request for a booth along the wall so the noise would not be as bad. I liked that they did not rush us. They waited until we were all done with our course or asked us if it was ok to clear dishes if someone wasn't done, that is how it should be. Will always return even though the food I ordered wasn't a particular hit with me, it was all good quality.

    I had forgotten how fantastic The Crossing is…calm, unrushed, Joshua our server was so informative about the dishes and the drinks - and the food was spectacular - every dish, from the blue cheese soufflé dip, to the octopus and foie gras starters to the mains - pasta and halibut special. Oh yes, and the fried blueberry pie. Perfect combination of great food and warm but professional service.

    We had 4 in our party and no one was impressed. My scallops were burnt my friend’s Foie Gras didn’t even resemble or taste like it should. We’ve both eaten in France so we know.
