I'm a local. I had been to Ivan & Andy's more than once. The drum-beating for C&R was quite good and I looked forward to trying it. I probably made a mistake trying them during restaurant week - they did quite a poor job on the prix fixe menu - I'd rate the meal poor. I read reviews from others that exactly mirrored my experience and reaction.
What I'm puzzled about are the 5-star Yelp reviews. Many of them. Even if they executed everything PERFECTLY they'd only make it to 4-stars because of the venue.
I dropped a note to C&R asking if there was any point to giving them another try - and, no surprise to me, they've failed to respond.
So, are there two places named Cross & Orange or is Yelp full of people with no taste who have never read the rating criteria?
