I admit that I dined here with a friend who visits the restaurant regularly and is "known" to the owners and staff. Thus there may have been some preferential treatment. Nonetheless everything was first-class from the service to the wine list. My friend recommended the...More

Charming place with friendly wait staff. Seems like they take the time to know their regulars. Pasta is fresh and yummy. There is complimentary valet parking too, which helps as Clayton can be hard to find parking.

We have been visiting this restaurant for some years. On our recent visit we realised that nothing much has changed in that time and it's all looking rather dated - the menu, the decor, and the facilities. The food's still OK, but not as good...More

The menu features some changing seasonal specials. I highly recommend the tasting menu, and if you have time, the 8-course chef's tasting menu is particularly enjoyable. Good for a business dinner or a date night.

Business lunch for three. Table ready on time, quiet, good server--got in an out of the way quickly. Food was "good" but not really special. Prices were above average. Ambiance (for a different situation) is not overwhelming.

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.
