    The view of the property and mountains was very beautiful. However, our server was awful. She blamed us for being sat during her busy time of the night. We sat at the table for at least 20 minutes before ever getting our water. Then she took our order incorrectly. Said she didn’t hear that we said the pretzel bread and brought us 1 salad to split. The salad was good but our entrees were disappointing. The chefs chop choice was terrible. The steak was over cooked, fatty and chewy. The salmon was alright but you are definitely paying for the view not great food. Our rating would have probably been rated a little higher if we would have seen our server more often. We had to wait on our napkins and silverware. Didn’t even bring knives for the steaks. Also waited too long for refills.

    I can appreciate innovative food as long as it taste good. My 12 oz flat iron steak was pitiful. I could have had better flavor at Texas Roadhouse. The house steak sauce was a cinnamon esq concoction that would have been fine to try and say Meh, then acquire some A1 or other sauce. They had nothing. The innovative peach cobbler dessert was disappointing. I do not mind paying high prices for food that merits the price. This did not and I was very disappointed.

    The food was very good and we sat on the terrace in spite of the rain and storms. My only complaint was that we seemed to be right in the path of where the severs walked to the other tables all evening. At one point I thought I was going to have a complete meal on my back since the server was so close to me and my chair with the three meals she was carrying.

    Amazing environment! Food was pretty good, mostly paying for the environment of course. App and starter portions VERY small for the price, definitely not shareable but tasty! Only qualms were 1) incredibly warm outside and fire place together made it uncomfortably hot 2) server seemed annoyed and only visited our table maybe three times in the span of two hours.

    The views here were awesome, great views. The food wasn’t great. We ordered apps, salad and a main course. Our apps came very quick. Almost as soon as we started with the appetizer another waiter brought our salad and main course within minutes. It all felt very rushed which could of been fine but the main course was not great. We got market steak and it was poorly cooked and not a great cut of meat. We ended up not eating it. If you come here I would recommend doing drinks and snacks/apps at most to enjoy the view. Everyone was nice and ambiance is awesome. Still worth coming but maybe don’t plan on full meal here.

    Starters: Grilled octopus was wonderful with unusual take on sauce but great flavor, perfect texture and cook time, and well matched with chick peas and arugula. Try it! Fried tomatoes themselves were great but the pimento cheese was relatively tasteless. Grits base were good. Mains: Shrimp and grits. DON’T ORDER. The shrimp was total mush without flavor. Could not eat. Very disappointing. Hot chicken: order only if you love sweet honey. The chicken sits on a piece of batter crusted fried bread drenched in honey. The chicken itself great texture and cook temp as well as flavor of spice but also lots of honey. Pickle slices sweet and fiery. The side of Mac and cheeses was right out of a velveta box - but I do love it that way you may or may not. Cocktails: o complaints just praise. Same for wine by glass selections And the view? Perhaps overcomes the let down in food ?

    We enjoyed a fabulous dinner last night at Edison in Grove Park Resort. Our table had a fantastic view of the mountains! Danielle our server was very professional and and was able to answer our menu questions and also suggested some good options since we were so undecided. Our food was great and we enjoyed a relaxed evening. Definitely will be back!

    Went for an anniversary they tried to give us the wrong table and then have us the worst seat on the patio. When I asked about moving to another open table that was the same size I was told it was for a larger party. They than say a 2 person group at that table as well. Lesson learned unless you have grey hair they will treat you poorly. We went to Rye Knot instead and had much better food and drinks and were not treated in an awful way. Will not be going back and instead will go to places that treat everyone equally.

    Our drinks were excellent. The food was ok but not anything near what we paid for. I got the 1094 burger and every ingredient on it was well over cooked. The appetizers we ordered were much smaller than expected with not very quality ingredients. We got the artisan cheese board and it was simple cheese cubes with some other nuts and salami, nothing to warrant the 28 dollars

    Valet parking was $25 and there were no parking places in the lots that weren't gated. Must be short on staff because half the tables were empty and they would not seat us early.

    Was really looking forward to this meal as so many people recommended coming to the Park Grove Inn. I couldn’t get a reservation at the Sunset grill so was able to snag one here. The $25 valet parking was ridiculous but unfortunately we felt obligated once we pulled in, our mistake. We started with the pretzel bread and we laughed when it arrived. It was literally 1 pretzel breadstick for $10. I didn’t even get to try it because my boys split it. The meals were just ok, nothing fabulous but definitely nothing to come back for. The view was beautiful, reservation was at 7 and we cooked in the sun for most of it until it went down past the building. This wouldn’t happen at the other restaurant based on the building. Glad we made it to the hotel, but super disappointed in our meal

    It was really hot in the restaurant. I think the AC was out. Then our waiter wasn’t on his game. It could have been the heat also. But our food came and re didn’t have utensils to eat with. When he showed up he apologized and brought them. No spoon for my soup . When he finally can back my soup was cold already. He forgot to order my husbands meal with bacon. Then brought out a plate of bacon. Of course it wasn’t on the sandwich which was getting cold waiting for the bacon And finally he forgot his beer which he wanted with his meal ! It just wasn’t a good night. We come often and it’s not like this. Possibly the heat, possibly the waiter! Not sure! But it won’t stop us from coming back We think it was a bad night

    Our server was incredibly attentive. We really appreciated him. And you can’t beat the view/location. The food is just subpar. The pasta was bland buttered noodles with old broccoli (yellowing). The burger was eh. A Caesar salad was okay. It’s just pricey for the quality.
