Went here for dinner and it was a great experience. The food was excellent; we all had the premium tasting menu ($50) and everything was well prepared and tasty, from the venison to the scallops. The wine pairing ($30) was well done and the pours were generous. Friendly and excellent service by Kayla. The restaurant is not large and always... More

Before penning the review, perhaps a comment for TripAdvisor: I don't think it's fair to ask someone up front if this is "one of the best meals you've ever had in a restaurant" and limited to only "yes/no" response. We have been fortunate enough to have eaten at three stars in Europe and places like Inn at Little Washington in... More

The Crossing is a white table cloth place. They treat you well. The service staff is high-end. The food is good and the wine list is pricey but excellent. There are better restaurants in St. Louis with imaginative chefs, but The Crossing in suburban Clayton is a good place to put on your list. The room is not large, and... More

Sometimes, getting some good food is enough, but turning the necessity into a lovely experience is what we found at The Crossing. All four of us were so totally satisfied with our dinner choices. I loved the beet salad and the beef tenderloin best. Others complimented the scallops and the salads. We enjoyed the casual and quiet vibe which allowed... More

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!

Featuring local "farm to table" food using a breadth of farmer in the Missouri and Illinois communities. When asked to define of The Crossing, Owner/Executive Chef Jim Fiala often says that he is a chef that buys locally whenever possible and cooks as any French and/or Italian chef would given the ingredients sourced. Joining Jim is Chef Matt Abeshouse who brings a wealth of passion and expertise in classic French cuisine to the kitchen. Our food is fresh, organic (whenever possible), seasonal and by design very simple.
