About
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

Really amazing meal with friends. Having a waiter who can speak to what is on the menu with knowledge and detail is so very cool. At the end of the meal, without asking they brought us a little bit of raw honeycomb from their rooftop...More

Loved this place previously, but the new menu is trying a little too hard and the flavors are not quite as exemplary as before. Still a wonderful ambience, but the menu feels more restrictive than inventive, and chef vs customer led, as if the food...More

This is a change from my previous 5-star rating. In spite of having a most attractive ambiance, a good location and great service, what matters most for a restaurant is the food. Crossings has a new chef and menu. We didn’t know it was broke,...More

Crossings has an intimate ambiance, attentive service and well prepared dishes. The DineLA Winter 2018 menu prix-fixe selections were good. My guests enjoyed the duck and the skirt steak and being able to order a starter and a dessert. Beefeaters Martinis were also enjoyed.
