    Gracious customer service from beginning to end. Front of the house was professional and attentive. Readily accommodated our request to move from the bar to a table. Tom delivered impeccable service: he was knowledgeable, had attention to detail and added wit. No issues splitting dishes or wine quartina (sp?). Plethora of varieties of gelatos and sorbets. We loved the cherry gelato and blueberry sorbet. Excellent all around. Best dining experience we had in St. Louis.

    A perfect dining experience. Service from Joseph was excellent and the menu flexibility was unique. The pasta stands out for its genuine, homemade feel and each dish was excellent.

    We ate at The Crossing yesterday for our Anniversary and it was amazing!! We chose from the four course tasting menu but also substituted dishes from the regular menu. Everything that we ate was fabulous - the tomato gazpacho, tuna tartare, pasta with morel mushrooms, Spanish octopus, lamb chops, scallops, and desserts. The service, and our server Howard, were wonderful and everyone was so friendly.

    Incredible food, cocktails, and wine in a beautiful and relaxed setting. We’ve had the Crossing on our favorite list for years. The service is always great, but Kayla is especially exceptional. She’s mastered the art of being perfectly attentive but never making you feel rushed. Thank you for another special evening!

    Really very nice place. Food is impeccable. We did the four course menu. I had gazpacho, crab cake, swordfish on mash and fried apple pie with cinnamon ice cream. This was completely delicious. Service was great. Enjoyed every moment.

    Great spot for a business dinner. We had a booth which made it easy to have a confidential conversation without concern for others hearing the conversation.
