Myself and three friends went to The Crossing in Clayton before The Muny. What a wonderful experience. Complimentary Valet is important because street parking is difficult. The Valet staff was very nice and accommodating. We ordered the fish special and it was fantastic! Great presentation...More

My favorite place in STL. Made a reservation for 11 for my 60th birthday. They not only accommodated us but gave us the service and quality dining that we have come to expect. An absolute gem. Can’t wait for our next visit.

Simply the best meal I have ever had in St. Louis. This place has it all. Romantic atmosphere, unusual offerings, professional service and a great wine list. Dinner will set you back a bit but this is a very special occasion restaurant.
