it is the rare restaurant that I have never experienced an slightly of meal at- Trattoria Marcella, Five Bistro and The Crossing fit that category. I put my dinner in Chef Jimmy Fiala's hands and he hit a home run.: First Course- local heirloom tomatoes with white anchovies in a basil vinaigrette. The basil was much more than an afterthought,...

My husband and I have eaten at The Crossing twice in the last few months and both meals were outstanding. Both times, we ordered from the Premium Tasting menu and every course was delectable. Particular standouts include an amazingly flavorful gazpacho, a fabulous foie gras starter, tagliatelle with chanterelle mushrooms, and a grass-fed beef tenderloin with pomme puree and bordelaise....

My family and I dined here for my birthday in July on a Wednesday night. At about 7 pm we were only 1 of 2 tables taken. I was hoping that this was not a bad sign but after the meal, it lived up to the reviews. Definitely go for one of the tasting menus. I opted for the Premium... More

Don't miss this one! Our server [Garrett] knew his wines:) and the lost art of organizing a fine dining experience. We ordered the filet and the salmon with mashed peas.....omg! Along with the superb wine pairing, we enjoyed every minute of our visit. Another visit to StL.....another fantastic restaurant.

We dined at The Crossing on 7/26/2014. This was our first visit but will not be our last. The dinner was extremely good and very creative. I ordered premium 4 course dinner. My first course selection was a beet salad. Yellow and red beets with goat cheese, mascarpone and pine nuts. Stacked and presented perfectly. The next course was the... More

The Crossing is usually a "special occasion" restaurant for us, but, to be honest, I do not know why we do not visit more frequently. The menu selections, including the specials, always offer more than enough choices, even with my self-imposed food limitations. The quality of the food is always terrific. The service and atmosphere are excellent. The wine selection... More

We dined as 7 middle age siblings and spouses as a family reunion of sorts on a busy Saturday night of a holiday weekend. The restaurant graciously expanded our table from 4 to 7 with only 2 days notice. The decor seems to have been updated since my last visit several years ago and is now modern with great art... More

We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary at The Crossing. The staff was outstanding! We both chose the tasting menu and substituted the special entree for the evening. Every course was sublime. At the end of our dinner, our waiter brought us out a special dessert (with a single candle) and two glasses of champagne to celebrate our 25 years. The... More
