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

The bread is absolutely delicious. The secret ingredients are olive oil and special salt. The fish was superb! The starter menu at $35 is at a convenient price, but my $38 fish was pricy.

By day a fine dining business lunch spot, by night a romantic hideaway. The chef is creative. The service is professional but conversational. The bartender is a master.

We celebrated my grandson's high school graduation. Other schools and local universities also celebrated graduations and the place was packed. We were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation and were offered a drink in the bar while we waited. Since our party was quite large, we all ordered different things and thus were able to sample just about everything... More

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.
