The Crossing is our favorite restaurant in all of St Louis. It has been for 15+ years. The food at every course is simply the best and they serve food you just don’t get anywhere else. The wait staff is always very professional. Convenient and fast valet parking eliminates the Clayton parking issue.

Wow, the tasting menu did not disappoint. Perfect portions, everything was prepared and presented exquisitely, and the flavors were outstanding. We hope to return for a chance to enjoy the grand tasting menu! The space is a bit noisy, but the attentive staff and phenomenal food/wine more than make up for it. Can’t wait to return for another special occasion!

For many years, the Crossing has been our place for celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, or any other excuse to go that we can come up with. Always reliably excellent. The mix of relaxed but upscale is perfect for an adult evening out. It's the only place we go to in this price range where we know we are going to leave feeling good about what we spent.

Wonderful service and an outstanding meal. The tasting menu was an excellent value and a great opportunity to explore the menu. Our server pointed out the tasting menu is essentially open to the entire menu, so both my husband and I were able to completely customize it to our liking. We were celebrating a birthday and the staff even signed a birthday card and had it waiting in our table when we arrives. We will certainly go back.

Gus was our server and blessed us with a remarkable dining event from beginning to end. The eight-course chef's menu was amazing and the wine pairings enhanced every bite. This birthday celebration for my wife was the perfect gift. Thank you to all the folks at The Crossing who served my table or parked my car! Well done.

Our first visit to The Crossing was memorable. Our server, Kayla, was excellent and helped walk us through the wine list and menu. She also provided several recommendations based on our preferences. The wine list is extensive and we found many good choices. The also allow you to bring your own wine as long as it isn’t on their list. They do charge a $25 corkage fee. We decided to go with the tasting menu ($50/person for four courses which is a great deal). The peach salad, crab cake, mint stracci, scallops, and peach pie were all amazing. Each is a “smaller” portion but the entire meal was more than enough as we had to take some home. Throughout the entire evening Kayla was always present but was never intrusive. We were always taken care of but had plenty of time for our private conversations. The atmosphere in the restaurant is casually elegant. The customers wore everything from suit & tie, to business casual, to very casual (shorts). Our only complaint was the noise level was a bit high. The tables are close together and many are close to the kitchen. But it is still reasonable and we had no trouble hearing each other. We highly recommend it and can’t wait to eat there again.

Can food be exquisite? If it can, then that is what is found at The Crossing. A recent meal opened with a delicious chilled cantaloupe soup, delicately flavored, followed by an amazing peach and ricotta ravioli made in-house with 3 types of pasta: spinach, beet, & (I think) butternut squash. The pasta was topped with a brown butter walnut sauce that was lovely but (for this usually low-fat diner) just a tiny bit too rich. The meal ended with a orange vanilla custard whose sweet, delectable creaminess was perfectly balanced by the bite of orange and liquorish vanilla. Service was impeccable, and the atmosphere perfect for relaxed conversation. All in all an exceptional experience & I can’t wait to return!

This place was packed on a Thursday evening so lucky we got last minute reservations. Our meals were absolutely outstanding. The Heirloom tomato and burrata cheese salad was my favorite, although my husband liked his local peach salad a lot. He declared his branzino fish dish the best he had ever had and I agreed after a couple of tastes on my part. My morel pasta was wonderful. The only downfall was since I have to be gluten free, the gluten free pastas are not as good as regular, but the dish itself was a treat. The flourless chocolate cake with ice cream was divine. Definitely would go to this restaurant when in the area next, but would try the tasting menu to get a wider sampling of this wonderful cuisine.

The Crossing is one of my favorite restaurants. Service and food are excellent. Tried bolognese and loved it. I always have the beet salad. Fried peaches for dessert was the perfect end!

The food was excellent as always. My husband and I both ordered fish entrees and they were delicious. Prepared perfectly and wonderful sides. Cannot beat the blue cheese spread that they bring at the beginning of the meal.
