Easily the best pasta in St. Louis. Properly rested, rolled, and cut. It is truffle season so they are offering that pasta with a simple butter sauce and fresh shaved white truffles for only $9 a gram. Simply sublime.

Our apps, tuna tartar, crab cake , and octopus were all well prepared and allowed the ingredients to shine.

Excellent food served in a classic dining room without unnecessary pimp or frills. Just simple classic service.

Excellent lunch menu with incredible home made pasta and nice selection of entrees.
The pureed roasted vegetable soup was exceptionally flavorful. Well done on Covid prep for indoor dining. The plexiglass partitions, well distanced tables and the well trained staff made us feel very comfortable for indoor dining.

I had dinner at The Crossing a few nights ago with two friends. The food and service were outstanding. The tasting menu is back and was amazing. They let me substitute the listed salads with a Caesar. The pasta course could have been my entire entree and was delicious. Wine selections are unique and reasonably priced. Our waitress, Kala, was very attentive and fabulous! Loved it all and can't wait to return!

Everything about this restaurant is outstanding. The tasting menu and wine pairings were on point. The service was excellent as well. The only thing that outshined the food was the perfectly crafted cocktails. Could not have asked for a better dining experience and look forward to returning.

I had the best meal that I've ever eaten in St. Louis at The Crossing. I started with the crab cake, which was fantastic. I then had the special fish entree served with butternut squash, mashed potatoes and arugula. The dish blew me away. I finished with the fried blueberry pie, which was out of this world. The service was superior and the restaurant has an elegant, sophisticated vibe. I can't wait to go back the next time I'm in St. Louis.

The Crossings has been my favorite restaurant for years. We love to go on all our special occasions. They have done a fantastic job providing safety through their dining experience - they have added plexiglass between booths and tables. All in all just fantastic- good food, atmosphere and the staff is very nice and friendly. Would recommend to all!

As always, amazing food and service. We ate in one of the "gazebos", so social distancing was very easy. They have fans and twinkly lights etc.... The soup of the day was a delicious gazpacho. My husband had the trout and I had beautiful scallops. The wait staff is efficient AND charming.

Had a friend date with my girl and it was out first time there. The Crossing (the building itself) is very hit or miss. You really have to keep your eyes out for it. The food was nicely prepared, our waiter’s knowledge of the menu and wine options was SUPERB and our busses kept the endless water coming!
