This was simply an amazing meal FROM THE MOMENT WE SAT DOWN. We were brought a free bleu cheese soufflé that was delicious and not overly pungent. We did the tasting menu, which was fantastic. We got the beet salad, egg raviolo (essentially carbonara with a perfectly cooked/runny egg yolk inside), and scallops. Each dish was superb. I also got an old fashioned that was made with some sort of spice. It was fantastic. The boulevardier I also had was adequate, but if I had it to do over again, I'd have stuck with the old fashioned. The bread with salted butter was consistently filled. 10/10 would recommend to a friend.

This was our first time dining at The Crossing, and it did not disappoint! The wine list is literally a book. A book of wines. We opted to not drink, and indulged in their tasting menu. The tasting menu is the way to go -- we got to try 4 courses of items from the menu (just smaller portions), and were totally full by the end of it. Try the scallops! 10/10 will go again.

The dish preparations were impeccable and our service was refreshingly friendly without any pretense. DO NOT let the Clayton location intimidate you. This is one of the best and most approachable dining experiences that you will encounter in St. Louis.

I went to The Crossing with work and it was to die for. The service, the food, the drinks...you name it - it was all outstanding. So my husband and I then had a double-date night there and again it was amazing. The specialty drinks, the food, the service. Healthy and fresh. Farm to table. Simply the best.

Tasting menu was outstanding. But, oddly, the coffee was bitter and the dessert was just average.

3 of us celebrated 2 birthdays & they made an event of it. There was a note on the table & Kaylee, our server, mentioned straight away.
One had fixed menu which was varied and Delcious. Another had a nightly special they swooned over. All were thrilled with their selections. So much so that dessert was a must. It did not disappoint.
Will NOT be waiting for a birthday to return.

If you want to dine in an upscale restaurant that has great food and outstanding service, you can't beat the Crossing! The tasting menu provides excellent value. The flounder special was delicious and Gus, our server was attentive and made sure we were able to make a 7:30 show at the Fox.

Wonderful way to celebrate a special anniversary! We had a relaxing, highly pleasurable, European-syle dining experience. The woman who called to confirm our reservation was delightful. When we arrived, a card on the table signed by Mr. Fiala welcomed us and congratulated us on our anniversary, which was a nice touch. The server brought the (amazing-tasting) blue cheese souffle for a small starter when we arrived and didn't bring the menu until after we'd ordered drinks, which set the tone for a slow meal (exactly what we wanted). Food was amazing. I chose the premium tasting menu and enjoyed every bite. The presentation was gorgeous and heightened the enjoyment. My husband ordered a la cart; it was great for each of us to be able to choose whether or not to do the tasting menu. He was thrilled with his monkfish special. My salmon was cooked to perfection with the lightest crust. Service was attentive without being obtrusive. When dessert was done I felt pleasantly full, without being stuffed. The ambiance was nice. It's a small-ish space, cozy and pretty. It was a bit cold though (temperature-wise--I don't know if it's usually this way because we went on a very cold night in January). I ended up wearing my coat for some of dinner. No loud music, thank God. We could actually talk. The only annoying noise happened when some sort of machine (blender?) buzzed for a couple of minutes at the bar. Not perfection, but pretty close. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and were saying "why in the world did we wait so long to return" to The Crossing? We will definitely be back.
