Gastro Pub
The Cross & Orange name and concept originates from lower Manhattan’s mid-19th century Five Points district where two cross streets and multiple cultures converged from around the world to form cuisines that are considered today's American classics. Cross and Orange intends for an approachable dining experience with park and lakeside views, just blocks from the Atlantic Ocean where it all began.

    C&O has never been a go-to place for us. That said, we wanted to give it a shot after our primary plan fell through. The food was disappointing. My GF ordered steak tartare- one of her favorites on most occasions. C&O’s version of it was mostly mustard and greenery. There was very little steak. My paella was better, but the sausage to seafood ratio was out of whack (they skimped on the seafood...for sure). Our waitress was pleasant enough, but was pretty blah.

    I love this place for dinner, but the brunch was awesome! Our Server Jess, gave recommendations and she was spot on. The food-donut sandwiches, waffles and chicken and the avacado toast-opps the short rib hash was amazing. We shared it amongst the 4 of us and it was great to try a little of each. Got to try this place for the brunch, with the market next door open it was nice to walk off the great food afterwards.

    $18 carafes of Mimosas were a hit! Overall good meals, donut scrambled egg sliders , interesting. Nice crisp side salad with it. Crab benedict very good, side potato, eh. French toast with fresh berries was delicious and plentiful. Wedge salad was disappointing. Wilted lettuce and way, way over dressed with dressing. In hind sight, 1) should have asked for dressing on the side and 2) sent it back. Nice Sunday brunch.

    Everything about Cross & Orange was wonderful. From our server, on to corn dog appetizers, then one of the best burgers I’ve ever eaten. The burger had a variety of choice beef and brisket, but was also strewn with bacon. The flavor was exceptional. They have other delicious and seemingly upscale items on the menu, but that’s what I was craving. It truly satisfied! You won’t be disappointed!

    The food and service was the worst we have encountered in Asbury Park. Two out of three of us hated their meal, which was prepared very badly. Chewy meat. Wilted lettuce. The bartender didn't know how to make our drinks. The restaurant was about half empty, which was our first clue on a summer Friday that it's no secret this place stinks. They should do the right thing and let a new restaurant take over since it is a great space and location!

    I was very disappointed in the food this time. There were a number of things on the menu that were sold out. It was hamburger night and I guess they were promoting that menu. Also I received a better value at a nearby restaurant the night before. I had a before dinner drink, salad and dinner and wined with dinner. For almost the same price, I only had one drink, dinner and a side dish at this restaurant. Plus the salad and dessert that I selected were sold out.

    We enjoyed the food. My daughter did order a burger and asked for it medium well and just cheese and no other items. When It came it was more on the rear side. Then they bought it back cooked but added lettuce, onions, etc. The third time they got it right. However, they did the right thing and they were really good about it and did not charge and did not charge for her drink as well.

    The interior space is quite nice. The hostess was quite personable and efficient. Our waiter was quite nice, but did forget to bring our drink order until prompted by me. He was appropriately apologetic. The brunch menu is nice and the food was good. We waited over 30 minutes for our food and the short rib hash was a bit too chilly. The restaurant was busy, but not packed. After trying several other restaurants in Asbury Park, I would go back to Cross & Orange and give it another try.

    We made a 9pm reservation and were a few minutes late. The hostess informed us we’d better hurry the kitchen’s closed. After this unfortunate beginning, our experience improved enormously. Our server was pleasant, the kitchen was open, and the food was pretty amazing. We look forward to returning.

    The menu is very interesting here. The selections can be made for both carnivores and vegetarians. The Bahn Mi Bowl was good however the pork belly was undercooked. The vegetable side dishes, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower, were excellent. It's a little pricey.

    Has become our go to place for brunch on Sundays with friends. With all the usual standards and some unusual offerings, no one will leave there disappointed. Even went with a friend who is gluten free and there were multiple choices marked gluten free. How can one go wrong?

    We have had several good meals at C&O, but Sunday night was not one of them. Sent my special sirloin burger back three times trying to get it "medium", but kept coming back raw in the middle after being cooked in a microwave I am guessing - there was melted cheese on top so hard to imagine it went back on the grill. The correct response after the first failed attempt should have been "we will remake the burger." But it wasn't, so I asked for them to take it off the bill and they did. Calamari appetizer was over cooked. We will likely be back, but not for a while.

    Had foodies in from New York City and was looking for a place for Sunday brunch that served more than the routine French toast, pancakes and egg dishes. Found it at Cross and Orange where besides the staples which wee excellently prepared, had more exotic choices including the Latin breakfast and the Banh Mi bowl. Complemented by a full service bar, the brunch was a great success and everyone left raving.
