Description: Crossings is a beautifully built, fine dining restaurant located in the historic Mission District of South Pasadena. We offer modern interpretations of classic American food focused on serving only the best ingredients available. Food is prepared in our open kitchen located in the center of the first floor of the brick and mortar building first constructed in 1908. The extensive and always growing wine program is housed in a wine loft, located between the first and second floors, completely visible from the first floor dining room and street. Behind the building is a beautiful patio, nestled under the branches of a 100 year old oak tree and right next to the Metro Gold Line light rail, offering a very urban experience. Upstairs at Crossings features two more dining rooms to enjoy the food, service, and ambience of Crossings. We look forward to helping create a wonderful experience for you at Crossings!

On our most recent visit, we were well pleased on all counts. Oysters Rockefeller demanded that the last delicious bits and juice be carefully drained and taken up. The halibut, an easy fish to mess up with the slightest overcooking, was perfectly done to near translucence. The swordfish was praised. I preferred the creme brulee to the strawberry shortcake [too sweet and cakey for my taste]. The Sancerre,part of an interesting well-chosen wine list, was very good and service was excellent. I suppose it can get noisy, but that Saturday night it wasn't, so a good time was had by all. Yes, it is expensive.

Delicious place! Crossings is one of my go to downtown dinner spots. Good selection with an extensive dinner menu. Service is fast however you can't always expect to be served with the rest of the guests at your table. They'll bring the plates out as they finish cooking them. It's actually kind of funny to me and it gives this place even more charm.

Perfunctory service. Mediocre wine list. Very average food at more than average prices. Wouldn't return.

Then go no further. We joined several couples for a birthday celebration recently and my eye caught the black cod on the menu. It was prepared perfectly on a bed of couscous with a slightly Spanish tasting salsa. It's no to be missed. All others thoroughly enjoyed their meal but I certainly won out as the best meal.

Finally went to Crossings and we were pleasantly surprised by the spot-on decor and friendly service. We especially liked the special bar drinks at Happy Hour; and the bartender, Ruben.
We also ordered oysters which were small and most importantly, fresh. We had a table waiting for dinner, which we enjoyed; but were a bit incredulous they had run out of burgers, forcing us to order more expensive menu items. Although we found entree items pricey, we didn't mind trying some of their other offerings. Still in all, we thought entree items were overly expensive. Yet the restaurant provides a wonderful setting for a very relaxing and enjoyable evening so that is the trade-off. We would definitely return for Happy Hour; and maybe dinner depending on our mood. Crossings is a positive addition to the South Pas dining scene.
