    Knowledgeable helpful and friendly wait staff. Not intrusive. Food was incredibly flavorful. Portion size was perfect. One of the best dining experiences my family has ever had. Only one diminished note, dessert was disappointing after such flavorful dishes in tasting menus. We each tried different ones. All except the creme Brule were bland and we ended on a very muted note.

    A wonderful evening by Jimmy and staff. The Red Snapper special is memorable. Ranks as of of the best fish entrees I have ever had. The seasonal burrata tomato salad was a great start. The peach ravioli was fun middle course. Always fun to try new things at The Crossing. Thanks for a great evening.

    I visited The Crossing for lunch. I LOVE burgers and an article was written about their “foie gras” burger, which set me in a tizzy to try it!! Now, the burger with the added foie gras was a tad bit pricey, but when I say it was WORTH EVERY PENNY!!! It was prepared as requested, the buns were grilled with crispy edges and the hand cut fries….an excellent accompaniment! I will not forget Tom, our server, who is very well versed on their menu items; his service was impeccable! I plan to go back to try their tasting menu! If you haven’t been to The Crossing….you MUST go!

    This was our first experience with dining at The Crossing, and it certainly lived up to our expectations. Our server, David, was phenomenal, giving us great suggestions and options. The food was great, and the atmosphere was perfect for a quiet dinner for two. I would heartily recommend The Crossing to any diner looking for a great experience.

    We went to celebrate my husbands birthday. Brought the kids because at 15 and 17 they can appreciate fine dining. We all had the tasting menu. Hubby said the octopus was the best he’s ever had. My steak was cooked perfectly. The desserts were delicious. We are definitely planning to return!

    Top favorite in Clayton! Matt at the bar is so knowledgeable, and Gretchen and Josh are attentive servers. Start with beet salad or tuna tartar. Recently tried the Dover Sole, but usually get the scallops, along with homemade pasta (you can really sense the freshness) and be sure to add some morels if in season. The best part of the 4-course dinner option is that you can tailor it from all of their items. Or maybe the best part is the chocolate dessert!
