After reading reviews we went and were not disappointed. We both had the Premium menu selection with beet and goat cheese salad , raviolo, grass fed tenderloin, then a rhubarb compote for dessert. It was a very enjoyable meal. We look forward to going again

Let me preface by saying we patron fine dining restaurants weekly. We were expecting a romantic atmosphere and were very surprised. The hostess had her hair in a bun on the top of her head, no makeup and was dressed in drawstring pants flats and overall looked as though she had just rolled out if bed. Patrons on the other...

Chef/owner Jim Fiala consistently does it right. Forget those who tell you that St. Louis' best restaurant is the one downtown...if they really know food, know wine and know the St. Louis market they'd know enough to tell you to go here. We've been fans since they opened maybe 15 years ago, and have spent every anniversary, birthday and special... More

The Crossing is my go-to place for business lunches, romantic dinners, family celebrations and more. The service is impeccable and the food without equal. Jim Fiala and his staff will deliver a quality experience, from valet and coat check to the wine list to the sumptuous meal and dessert. We visited the Crossing recently for my husband's birthday. The squash... More

I am almost embarrassed to admit this was our first experience at this wonderful restaurant. We went with another couple after reading a glowing review in local paper. The experience exceeded our high expectations. My wife had requested a booth when she made reservations and a nice booth was waiting for us. The service was outstanding--Zach was waiter. We spent...

My husband took me there for my birthday. We both had the Chef's Grand Tasting Menu with the wine pairings and were totally in the hands of the Chef. We were not disappointed. There were 8 courses and each one was more delicious than the last. Our waiter was attentive but not too attentive and the ambiance was cozy, not... More

Bill of fare is quite varied and gave us the opportunity to try some new things. The Bison ribeye was a disappointingly tough, but now I know. Service was very good and the wine selection was affordable.

We enjoyed our meal here; when we drove up to the front of the restaurant, we were met by the parking valet; valet parking is free, but we did give the valet a tip. My wife wanted to avoid dairy products in her dinner, and the waitress guided her through the menu and arranged to have cheese omitted from one... More
