The Crossing is by far one of the best restaurants in St. Louis. It is located on a quiet and quaint street that is very walk friendly and in the winter is lined by beautifully lit trees. The restaurant is cozy and comfortable inside. All the staff from hostess to servers are welcoming and deliver respectable and prompt service. The... More

My experience at the Crossing was excellent. The food was delicious, the service was friendly and attentive and the overall dining experience was top tier. I would recommend eating here if you have plenty of time and do not mind having a four course dinner. The tasting menu was excellent and allowed everyone at the table to try a number... More

We were in town for a funeral and needed a nice restaurant. After reading multiple reviews and lists we landed at The Crossing. Service was efficient and friendly, and the four course tasting menu a remarkable value of both taste, quality and cost. One of the best things was a complimentary appetizer, a blue cheese soufflé. The cream of asparagus... More

My wife and I stopped into The Crossing to celebrate her birthday. We had been to their sister restaurant, Acero, many times. We found The Crossing to be just as enjoyable with a few more tantalizing and upscale menu items. We both sampled their four course tasting menu which was delightful. The portions are tasty and appropriately sized to be... More

I am fortunate to be able to dine out often and have the opportunity to try a variety of nice restaurants I find listed on Tripadvisor. Overall The Crossing is a nice restaurant. It's small but lovely interior creates a nice dining environment but it was just a bit noisy. The service was slow, but not unlike what one would... More

First of all, we love this place. Go here EVERY birthday, anniversary, holiday. Last visit NY Eve. Dammit. They're only human, and this is the first non-five-star experience. Arrived several minutes early, table wasn't ready, so we sat at the bar for a pre-dinner cocktail, which was fine. However, we weren't seated for our 8:30 reservation until 9:15, and not... More
