The view was beyond breathtaking of the sunset and the mountains. The food was delicious, huge salads, and great service. The cabin vibe of the exterior, drapped with the backdrop of the mountains made for a perfect evening.

The food and views were outstanding. Kim our server was attentive. I would recommend the pretzel bread for an appetizer. Knowing we had that and ordered mixed greens to start, she had them divide the salad for us to share.

Reservations are needed, plan days ahead if you desire eating after 5:30 pm. You may eat on the covered terrace or inside. It has a upscale tavern type of ambiance. The food is good, but pricey. the desserts are fair but very overpriced. You are paying a premium for eating at The Grove Park Inn.

Cody was great. Made us feel welcomed. A no pressure atmosphere meant to be relaxing and accommodating. We had a meat and cheese board, copious amounts of wine, and desserts. We skipped the entrees as we became full, but never felt rushed. The food was delicious. The view did not disappoint. This was our second time here and we will return on our next visit to the Omni Grove Park Inn.

Make sure you have plenty of time when dining at the Edison. It was 15 minutes before a waiter came to our table, and then another 15 minutes before we got anything to drink. Apart from that it was a wonderful experience. The food was absolutely delicious, especially the lamb burger; the waiter we had was wonderful, he was from Ireland and was a joy; and of course the view was fantastic and worth the cost of this restaurant.

Brought my cousins from Oklahoma to the Edison for lunch Saturday at 11:30. We were seated promptly and were offered a table with a wonderful and unobstructed view. Appetizers, cocktails, and main courses were all served straight from the kitchen and were all very good. Too full for dessert! When they left for the coast Sunday morning, they declared lunch at Grove Park Inn was the highlight of their two night stay.

Fiancé’s Bday getaway. The hotel was gorgeous and the service was exceptional. We ate at the Edison restaurant were the view was perfect of the blue ridge parkway. Our waiter Cody was fun and very courteous. We definitely be visiting the Omni grove again !

Good food, bad service. Amazing view. Our waitress was sub-par. Had to tell her to go speak with the chef about food allergies, she didn’t offer. We received the wrong check which took a while to correct. For the price, we should have received better service.

Food was very good, but service was rushed. Main course came out 2 minutes after receiving starters. Interestingly enough, starters were ordered separately from main courses.

I have food allergies and have only limited items I could eat on the Edison menu. I did let them know this in my reservation. Unfortunately, the dish I ordered was not prepared properly (2 of the 5 components were not included) but our server worked to make things right. It did ruin my experience to a degree. We were on a timeline, so ordering a new menu item just didn’t make sense when it had taken a good deal of time for us to be served our meal (our reservations were at 4:30 pm and the restaurant wasn’t busy with other patrons at that time. They may have been short staffed?) They did comp us a gluten free dessert (apple cobbler) which was delicious. The best item on the menu is their grilled octopus appetizer. Kim M. is an experienced server, very kind, and attentive.

We were very excited to get dinner here for our 2 year anniversary. While the view was pretty the service was awful. On our reservation I stated that it was our anniversary and they did/said nothing about it the whole time we were there. The food and drinks were extremely over priced as well. Wish we had gone somewhere else and gotten more for our money.
