First time back in about a year. We ordered the three course tasting menu with a few up-charges for food and went with the wine flight #2. All the courses and pairings were delicious. Portions size for the both the food and the pours was perfect. Timing of service and presentation was excellent. Our server Luke was great.

We arrived and we were told our table was not ready. We were invited to have a seat on the couch and get comfy or have a seat at the bar and let Phil take care of us until our table was ready. We chose the bar.
Phil was very helpful and crafted amazing drinks. I recommend the Trinidad. It sounds awful and tastes AMAZING!!
We were seated shortly after receiving our drinks. Our server, Sunny, provided a quality dining experience all the way around. He took time to go through the menu options as well as the nightly specials, giving personal recommendations throughout.
We followed his recommendations and were delighted with every choice. The timing and presentation of each course was artistic and the balance of flavors exquisite. Sunny was attentive and engaging.
The entire staff worked together to enhance the dining experience by running food, refilling water and clearing plates in a timely manner.
I highly recommend The Crossing.

We always have a great experience at the crossing but this time the service from the valet, to the hostess snd all the wait staff was amazing. I liked all my food except I thought the lamb chops were not the quality I would have expected. Overall, we totally enjoyed the night.

This was one of the BEST meals I have had in a long time. As a native St. Louisian I cannot believe I've never been here before tonight. From our predinner drinks to our dessert, everything was absolutely delicious. I will definitely be coming back.

A very civilized place to have lunch in a world where lunch is rarely available. We had their fish special and loved it along with a lovely white Burgundy by the glass. As always, service was outstanding.

We lucked out and snagged a table last minute on a Saturday night (there had been a cancellation). All the staff were very nice and David, our waiter, was great. He had good suggestions and was very knowledgeable and personable. Good was delicious. They bring a blue cheese and white cheddar soufflé with mini toasts as a little “freebie”. The wine list is very extensive and we picked a very bold and tasty red. Dishes we tried included the mushroom soup, mixed green salad, braised short ribs and lamb chops. All outstanding. There was a scallop special that sounded great but since we had the red wine going already, we didn’t opt to get it.

We had a wonderful experience enjoying our dinner at the bar with Phil, the bartender. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and paired our wines beautifully with each course of our meal. My boyfriend and I each ordered from the tasting menu and neither of us got the same thing so we were able to try several different selections. It was all amazing. Look forward to going back again.

We were there for a special occasion. We were only given the drinks menu when seated. We would have liked to see the food choices which influence whether we want a cocktail or wine.
All the food we had was very good and the crab cake was Outstanding! The service was a little slow and some of the servers look alike and all wear identical shirts so we weren't sure which was ours.
One of us got the tasting menu. The squash soup waa excellent.
The small portion of lamb chops wasn't outstanding, but there was a $10 upcharge! That didn't make a lot of sense.
The bill added up to over $200 for two with tax and tip. The ambiance was subdued. The artwork was very nice.

We had a good experience with the tasting menu but we’re disappointed with the long delay (1/2 hour) to see a menu and then another long delay to receive our check. The entire cadence of the meal was too slow taking 2 1/2 hours for a party of 2. Other than slow, service was good. Our servers suggestions were very helpful. The food was excellent . The room was extremely loud making conversation difficult as we were seated in the center of the restaurant surrounded by tables in booths and along the sides. The Crossing is well reimbursed for their efforts with prices at the top of the market. Valet parking was efficient and necessary for downtown Clayton.
