Wow! Every time I go back (I have been five times) it is better, which is something I have never experienced. I am not a foodie but The Crossing is turning me into one. While not cheap, it a very good value for the overall experience. The wine list is extensive with many interesting selections and a wide price range.... More

We were visiting St. Louis for Wash U parents weekend. I wanted to take our daughter to a "more expensive" restaurant that she wouldn't normally go to with her college friends. I made a reservation for The Crossing on "Open Table" since it was rated highly and I liked the look of the menu. They have a la Carte selections... More

This is a farm-to-table restaurant and it had wonderfully delicious food. There's a classic taster's menu for $35 per person, but you can also do a more elaborate four course for $50 per person and a wine flight for an additional $30.--perfect for a romantic night or celebrating an anniversary!

Since it opened The Crossing has maintained its excellent reputation for food and service. A recent lunch confirmed that, no matter the time of day, the experience is wonderful.

I had a big dinner party at the Crossing. The decor is modern and cozy. The staff friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable. Their tasting menu is three course, but there is also options for a la carte and dessert. I chose the tasting menu and was very happy with my choice. It felt like having dinner at the family table in... More

For us, The Crossing is the #1 restaurant in St Louis for special family celebrations. We like the prix fixe menus and their wine selections. It's a great choice for consistently good dining.

Recently took two other people to The Crossing for a dinner. I had been there a handful of times before, but not within the past year. We all had the three course tasting dinners, which were good but not great. The Crossing is one of the best restaurants in Clayton, but sadly it doesn't hold a candle to the best... More

We had a great dinner with my wife. The food was awesome, the waiter was really good, it's a bit pricey for my budget but it's worth it
