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!

Thank you for bringing this to our attention, and we sincerely apologize that you felt the need to sneak the chair. Table selection is made on a first-come, first-served basis, however we certainly do not wish any of our guests to be uncomfortable and would have assisted you directly had the issue been known at the time of service. We hope you will choose to dine at Edison, Craft Ales + Kitchen again soon when we may better show you the hospitality for which we are truly known.

I really like the grove park inn. Would recommend for dinner. The views are terrific and it’s a nice relaxed atmosphere. A little pricey and the hotel itself has gotten outrageous in terms of room rates and all added extras including a resort fee and a daily parking fee.

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!

Food was well prepared, portions were modest. Service was good not great. Beer selection considering the location was below average. The setting is great. The prices of food and beverages were very high all things considered. There are a better choices for restaurants in Asheville. However, if you are too late to for other choices and are staying in or around Grove Park Inn this would work, as long as you are prepared to pay more than in other otherwise comparable restaruants in Asheville.

The view was fantastic!! However I can’t say as much for the food. Although the appetizers were great (fried green tomatoes & pretzel bread), our entrees were less than climactic. The burgers were way too done to be $18, as a matter of fact we weren’t even asked how we wanted them cooked, and the shrimp and grits were so smothered in vinaigrette that it ruined the whole dish. The bison meatloaf did not disappoint but for the price point these meals should have been much better.

The Edison's food is good enough, but pricey. This is the second time we've eaten at the Grove Park Inn (the first was at the Sunset Terrace) and both times the service has been lacking. The first time, the waiter seemed to forget about us. (By way of apology, he said the restaurant had gotten busy. Um, that's what happens.) The second time, I suspect it was the kitchen's fault, with one entree no longer hot by the time it reached the four of us. (To the restaurant's credit, we were not charged for it.) But some asked-for mustard did not come until we repeated the request...and it still took a while.

It's fine if you want to charge those prices. But if you want to be a first-class restaurant, you must have service and food that are in line with the cost.

Beautiful location. Great waitstaff. Really too bad and missed opportunity with iconic and historic hotel for one of worst dining experiences in Asheville. The food is such a missed opportunity to do something great. You can go to any brewery in town and have great elevated delicious chef quality bar food but a chain restaurant does a better job than Edison. I expect more. Sad

The view was beautiful and the food was great. I wouldn’t say the service was bad however we were there for an hour before we received our food and we ordered right away. I think the server forgot to put the order in. We went without drinks for a little while too. He was busy but it shouldn’t be like that when you’re paying a lot for the food. I also booked noting a birthday in the comments. The host noticed and wished me a happy birthday as we arrived. My boyfriend even told the server a second time but it was never acknowledged. A little disappointing in that respect. That’s why the 4 star. However it was a beautiful view so that helped.

I had the pork tenderloin and my husband had the steak frites. Both were very good and we enjoyed the cheese board appetizer. We sat outside with a beautiful view and the outside area is very comfortable. I enjoyed the atmosphere better than the Sunset Terrace. We came back for lunch and sat inside, but the seating inside was by the bar and not as nice. The service was good and the portions were generous. I would recommend it if you are staying at the hotel.

I was very disappointed with the beet salad I had
for lunch in the Edison dining area. It was $15, and was just not good. I ate little of it, but did not complain because it wasn’t over or under cooked. The waitress didn’t ask me how it was or offer to box it up, so she probably was used to patrons not eating it! The combination of ingredients just didn’t work. Also, we were seated with our friends in an area that had no view of the gorgeous grounds, even though we had a reservation and all we needed was a table for four. Finally, it was very noisy.

Our waiter Nicky was amazing and so accommodating. The view was stunning (and we weren't even on the edge) and the food was delicious too, but be weary of the cheese and meat platter as the meat wasn't sliced/cured meat as charcuterie boards usually are - it was a pate and some solid chunk (forgot what it was called) regardless, it was pretty good but not what I had expected. Overall, it was a special anniversary dinner at a beautiful, historical inn that we will remember for a while.
