    After hitting most of the restaurants now in town, the food here is one of the best. Its not new like many other places I know - but the food is foodie worthy. The plating was very detailed and pretty. The Decor was modern, and classy. The Waitress was superb - the right mix of attentive but not intrusive. We were stuffed, on only an appy and entree each and couldn't finish a shared dessert. Tapas on Main same weekend & Edge food quality and flavor far exceed Tapas on Main - IMHO is very over rated (but 1/2 price). One big criticism, the wine selection was generic /basic, blah poor quality wine was extremely pricy if you know your wines. For a restaurant of this $ point - there should be as much effort to find wine - as in food prep

    Our dining experience at Edge was nothing short of spectacular! Tuna tartare appetizer was delicious and very uniquely presented. My pork fried rice was super tasty and again uniquely presented on the plate! My husband loved his twin filet' with rosoto! The meals are of a good size portion and very creatively designed. Our server was very efficient. The ambiance is cool! We met Chef Timothy in person! He has such a sweet man who obviously loves his profession and is very very good!!! Extremely talented and we will definitely make the trip back to dine at Edge.

  • Disappointing
    Lehighvalleymom
    Dined on 7/25/2014
    The soup, salad, and entrees were quite good however, the desserts were terrible! We tried the chocolate, caramel tart (mini pie crust with runny caramel inside and an overwhelming ginger flavor) and the "tiramisu" (served in a bowl & tasted like instant pudding with coconut on top). Ten years ago Edge was our favorite local restaurant. We hadn't been there for several years, and we were disappointed overall. Also, we had reservations at 7:15 on a Friday, and the restaurant was nearly empty. The decor needs an update too.

    There was nothing special about the restaurant. The food was good but far from the best. The steaks--filet mignon-- were not as tender as we are accustomed to and had some gristle. The Demi glaze was excellent though. My hearts of romaine salad was presented well but nothing special. The glass of wine was really a half glass. The meal was not worth the price.

    Another great meal for four at Edge. Skate Wing, a fish, was just fantastic. Desserts were also terrific, especially the coconut a cake ... A modern twist in a classic. Service is always top notch and we have never had a bad experience, even after visiting dozens of times of the years.

    There was no wait on a Friday night which is fantastic. Very nice atmosphere, and amazing food. My only gripe would be that there was not enough. I tend to see small portions at these types of restaurants, which is very unfortunate because otherwise this place would be a five start restaurant in my book all day long. If you've been to "melt"and enjoyed yourself, chances are you'll enjoy this just as much and spend a little less. I had the chicken wrapper in lettuce as an appetizer, and loved it. For someone who enjoys spicy, it did come with a sauce that offered a small dose of heat. Great for a date. It's a perfect light meal for the occasion.

    The menu was predictable-standard salad offerings-every restaurant offers these boring salads...I loved the roasted cauliflower with cinnamon and the duck entre was exceptional. I had the fried pork-the meat was delicious, but the sides weren't very interesting. The rice was just ok and filled with edamame, so the huge 1/2 plate of unpeeled edamame didn't work as a side-I didn't even bother with it. I would go back for the duck.

    We arrived and our table was not ready so we were escorted to a bar table for drinks. We were seated quickly and found a diverse menu. Too many items to choose from! We had yummy drinks and appetizers and then enjoyed the steak, pork and duck entrees. The cherry gastric was wonderful on the duck and the squash risotto went well with the pork. Our only complaint was of the undercooked brussel sprouts. The server was attentive, although our food took a little longer then expected. No worries bc the drinks were delicious

The food is always consistently prepared and delicious. The cocktails are very good and the wine and beer list is notable, with some hard to find gems. The staff and service are impeccable. I certainly recommend Edge to anyone.

    Ate here late on a weeknight so it wasn't too crowded which was nice. The wines by the glass are very good as is the calamari appetizer. Both the pork tenderloin and filet mignon entrees are a must! Our waitress left before we were finished so another waitress took care of our check. Edge is a must if you're on Northside.

    I have to frequently travel to allentown for family business and don't usually venture to Bethlehem for dinner. My sister and I were very pleasantly surprised by meal at Edge. there were lots of food and drink options -- we opted for a bunch of small plates and appetizers and concluded that each was better than the next. Our only complaint was that we should have remembered to ask for salad dressing on the side or for the kitchen to apply it lightly. There was just a little too much. But the food was really delicious!

    I was excited to go to Edge since the menu looked appealing but once we got there it was a disappointment. Went on Valentines day with my husband and there was a lot of couples but you would have not known it was Valentines day. The rolls were hard and the oil on the table did not have flavor . I had the crab cakes which were over fried and the Remoulade was nothing but mayonnaise taste and the Napa slaw was warm and was not good to eat.
