    Our overall experience at the Edison was disappointing. First of all, it costs us $25 just to park for an hour in their parking garage. The weather was crummy, which of course has nothing to do with the Edison, but when I called with questions about our outdoor seating if if I should cancel before the upcoming storm, the reservation operator assured me that there were heaters and blankets and it would be lovely. The heater above our head puttered and squeaked the whole time we were there. We had a lovely server, but that really didn’t make up for the subpar food and the disappointing atmosphere. If I could do it again, I would have chosen one of the many great options downtown Asheville & saved my $25 in parking.

    Very slow service. Waitress had zero charisma and perfected the disappearing act. It took 90 minutes to get in and out. The food was fantastic as was the view.

    Our open table reservation wasn’t in their system even though we could show them our reservation email. Our waiter had to be a bartender also. Therefore, service would be spotty although many other waiters were just hanging around doing nothing. We had to sit at a high boy table, not a dining table also. Food was just okay this time.

    Paying for the location/view. Food pretty good but overpriced. Beautiful sunset and Mountain View but we probably would not return. Keep in mind valet parking $25 for dinner.

    While the outdoor seating can’t be beaten for a beautiful sunset view over the mountains of Asheville, the food was almost a complete disappointment. We ordered white clam chowder, and two pasta dishes. Both courses came out together. While the chowder was watery, it tasted okay. This turned out to be a lifesaver, as the white sauce and broccoli pasta was bitter and inedible. Paid $30 for two bites.

    We got stuck in traffic and the hostess was so helpful in moving our reservation to a little bit later while we were on our way. Our waiter was able to answer all the questions we had about the menu, as well as make recommendations. Both our drinks and food were delicious! We even gave some feedback about a new dessert and the waiter seemed genuinely interested and let us know he would pass the feedback along to the chef. And well, the views simply can't be beat! We had a great dinner at Edison and will definitely be back!

    There was simply nothing worthy of the price for this meal. The buffalo meatloaf was unexciting, simple flavor, something I would have expected at a Denny's. Our waitress was way over worked, it was evident that they were covering way too many tables. If your going to pay nearly $100 for a meal for two, they need to figure out a much better menu, as that was of no value. When it came to the location and view, unreal. This site is awesome, and deserves to provide a meal that matches that expectation.

    Beautiful setting and facility. Drink and food prices very competitive. Food was better than average for the area. However the buffalo wing sauce did not taste appropriate… more like barbecue. The Caesar salad was delicious. The flat iron steak was good but the accompanying potato fingerlings had a spice that was not palatable! Would try again in next Ashveville visit. Service was excellent!

    David was a good waiter. The salmon and shrimp and grits were good. I feel the wine is a bit over priced. I get it’s a resort but about 2-5$ higher a glass. When you add on 25$ for valet parking. That’s high. If you eat at Omni GPI restaurants as a local Ashevillian you all should validate the parking or give half off parking with validation. Thx
