Edison provided the exact experience that was advertised. It was lively without being too loud. It had a beautiful view and promoted a fun dinner environment. The food and drinks were exceptional.

Server kept running by saying “in a minute”. Asked for ice water and was told our water is cold…it was not. Asked again and 5 minutes later I received a glass of ice water. Told girl at hostess desk how unhappy I was with the service and instead of getting the manager she said she was sorry. Not a great birthday dinner!

We love the Edison at Grove Park Inn. We've been to Asheville 3 times and ate there each time. This time we went for our closing evening of a long weekend at Grove Park Inn. The outdoor seating is wonderful with great views of the mountains in the evening. This night there was a wedding on the terrace below and we were treated to a balcony seat for the bride and groom's first dance. My daughter is a burger-fanatic and the Edison burger did not disappoint - large portion and delicious fries on the side - plus an ice cream for the kids meal! My wife and I both enjoyed cocktails with dinner & despite "eating light" were plenty satisfied with a burger/side salad and entree salad. Our server Kim was extremely attentive and responsive - overall a terrific dining experience!

We had Amanda as our waitress and it was a wonderful experience. It was my birthday and we brought cake and she made everything so easy for us. They cut the cake in the back for you and they put candles on it. Amanda sung happy birthday and her voice was AMAZING. Now to the food, the burger is AMAZING it is the best burger I have ever had. We started with the octopus and the pretzel bread which are also SO delicious. Overall, everything was so amazing. I love The Edison and will definitely be coming back again.

We ordered appetizers and drinks as a light lunch. The seasonal pumpkin soup was to die for as was the charcuterie board. The honey added a lot to the party. However, it took over 20 minutes for our soup and apps to come out. Too long in my opinion but the food was worth the wait. I do wish they’d start using cocktail napkins again. Condensation got all over the table and dripped through the cracks in the table. Still have high marks because we will definitely eat here again!

Loved everything about this experience! We were debating between here and the Terrace, and I’m glad we booked here (slightly more casual, more appetizer and shareables - both had similar views). We wanted apps and drinks for the sunset before heading into the city for a late dinner and this was one of the best parts of our trip. Our server Dave was wonderful, we’re thankful for such a great visit!

To be honest I came for the view which WOW by the way, but the Venison was one of the best dishes I’ve ever tasted. Compliments to the chef. It was cooked to perfection. The wait staff was friendly. Highly recommend this place.

I'm in my 70s' and have eaten hundreds/thousands of burgers, but none better than the "smash burger" at the Edison, Grove Park Inn. They also have a "snickerdoodle" dessert that EVERYONE should order, should try...unbelievable in texture and quality, with different dipping sauces to boot

We've eaten here a few times and had just drinks as well, amazing place! Love the food and cocktails, every bartender and waitstaff is not only friendly but helpful. This is a restaurant I always recommend even to those not staying at Grove Park. Worth trying out, if for nothing more than the view!
