We ate lunch there on the first day of Gingerbread houses display. Beautiful view of mountains, friendly server, fast service, delicious foods. Hamburgers were delicious, grilled cheese sandwich-salad-and tomato soup (served in a cute coffee cup) were yummy, and salmon and salad were scrumptious. Shared delightful deviled eggs. Decorated for Christmas. Memorable time!

Food was great. Bar service was prompt and courteous. Wait staff member was fine. My objection comes from very poor service from the two individuals seating people. We made our reservations way in advance, arrived early and checked in, got a drink while waiting, then were never texted to say our table was ready. We waited and waited. Meanwhile, plenty of tables for two or more were vacated and cleaned off, and still it was not our turn. When I went to the check-in desk to ask how far down the waiting list we were (there were no more people waiting), they acted like they had never heard our name before, as if we were new people walking up. They said, "Oh, we can seat you right now." No explanation of the long wait, no apology. That's because the two people were busy chatting with each and were oblivious to the job at hand. Wake up, people! Anyway, I didn't appreciate it.

Simple,solid menu. Done well. Excellent service. Trout special was amazing. Our server was Becca (or maybe Emma...so sorry I cannot get it 100% in recollection), and her pace of service and "read" of us was impeccable. Great job; really made the experience great. Views cannot be beat. Early reservation timed well for big game and sunset.

I have recommended this restaurant in the past, but after this visit, I would recommend venturing out into Asheville. It may still be at the Grove Park Inn, but the quality of this restaurant is currently well below what we have enjoyed here before! Someone needs to wake up and bring The Edison back up to (at least) par. A real disappointment this weekend!!

Menu prices are growing......on a regular basis.......so perhaps soon only those who have very large sums to spend on food will eat here. Of all the restaurants in the Grove Park Inn, I had hoped that this one might maintain a reasonable price structure. ($28. for a plate of broiled salmon with a vegetable side is not really reasonable, is it?)
I will return to the Inn on occasion, as long as there is still 3 hours of free parking, but the idea of paying $400 minimum to stay overnight? Outrageous.
I checked "yes" above because the food is good, but there are lots of places in Asheville where the working class can eat good food......for a lot less.

Again, not disappointed. It is a lovely spot to dine. I had out of town guests and the Edison seems to be the go to spot for visitors. The dining was inside and very warm and casual. There were many others dining but the level of noise was minimal. Service was terrific, satisfied all food tastes from 13 to 58 year olds. Prices are very reasonable for the atmosphere and delicious food choices.

The view from the restaurant is amazing. The food was good. Server was very attentive and knowledgeable. Really amazing hotel!

The only trouble we had was the AC was still on. 80 in the day and 52 at night so the draft was a little much to take. We asked our server at the beginning but they couldn’t shut it off. The dining room is ready for a little furniture face lift. The chairs are about 1-2” too short for the tables. So you feel like a kid at the adults table. High tops were that way too. Just uncomfortable.

We were told originally we had outside seating even up to the morning of our reservations. When we got there they said there was no dining outside. Our 2nd choice was to be seated near the fireplace. They didn’t do either for us. It was an extremely special occasion. My first time meeting my new-found niece if 50 years past. The parking was horrendous! It was pouring outside and the shuttles made us 30 minutes later to meet up. Never go on a rainy night but we made reservations a month in advance.

All four of us were very disappointed in the food. We did not like anything we got, including the nightly special, except the cup of fish chowder. There are several places in Asheville with much better food such as The Chestnut, Curate, The Blackbird, Corner Kitchen, etc. We will not go back but I do have to say the aviance was very good with the exception of the noise level and the service was superb. I can not speak to the food at any of the other restaurants on site but the building was definitely worth seeing.

As locals we often bring our out of town guests to the Grove Park Inn and enjoy dining at the Sunset Terrace. The ambience of the Inn is unmatched. This evening we made reservations at Edison as no reasonable dinner slots were available at Sunset Terrace. We arrived on time with our out of state and out of country guests. We were seated with a nice view of the sunset from inside. David was polite however the amount of time we had to wait for our dinner was unacceptable. We were sitting for an hour and ten minutes before our meals finally arrived. He apologized once saying that the bar had numerous orders go in at once. No other apologies were offered and the bar area did not seem overly crowded. When the food finally arrived it was mediocre at best. The smashed burger and cuban sandwich were both below average by Asheville standards. Before our check arrived I shared my displeasure with the hostess and asked the she be sure to share our experience with whoever needed to know. What was to be a special occasion was sorely lacking (other than the beautiful sunset and nice conversation). I will not return to Edison nor will I recommend it to others. In the future, if we are unable to get seating at Sunset Terrace, we will simply take our guests to the Grove Park Inn for a drink and have dinner elsewhere in Asheville.

We had a wonderful first time dinner at the Edison. We were sat outside (covered patio area) right along the railing where we were able to enjoy the beautiful views. The food and drinks were excellent. We were adventurous and tried the sauteed octopus starter and it was superb! Two in our party needed gluten free and this was easily accommodated. We would highly recommend taking the time to eat at Edison.

Amazing service! Our waiter was more than accommodating and made sure we were seated with food in time for the sunset! Couldn’t say more about the service! We had the goat cheese balls, grilled cheese and a smash burger. All was great except the goat cheese balls were a bit bland. We put some salt on them and they much improved! Thanks for a great experience!

Absolutely beautiful views at sunset and the food was tremendous. Even for the more “casual” spot at Grove Park, each dish was world class. We especially loved the charred octopus, fried green tomatoes, seasonal scallop dish and the bison meatloaf! Each was packed with unique flavor and made a statement. Don’t sleep on the dessert menu! The cheesecake was presented in such a neat way as a little globe with the roasted peaches inside and it wasn’t too heavy so we left feeling satisfied not overstuffed! Our drinks were absolutely fantastic - very fresh ingredients and spot-on flavors - even the virgin mule for our pregnant guest was mixed with some additional flavors to really make it special!
