The food was delicious as usual. With it not being busy season, it seemed that the wait staff was in slow motion but polite and enjoyable.

Menu offerings are varied for all tastes and budgets, so we were surprised to see the filet price higher than usual. We were NOT disappointed! Right up there with some of the best steaks we’ve had and a nice wine list with good value offerings. Our server was delightful and all diners were having a good evening. Stepped out on balcony with fireplace and outdoor heaters - the view of Asheville’s lights from the Grove Park’s back porch is the best in town!

Our food at the Edison was very good, Kale salad was lovely, pork rinds with pimiento OK, Bone in Ribeye fantastic. The kids meal was a very good value as well. I do think the total was fairly high considering we split the steak. There are so many great restaurants in Asheville, it made me wish we had left the Inn and explored another place. However, if you need some down time and want to eat in the hotel, this is a good option.

Not impressed considering the location at the Omni Grove Park Inn. Was expecting something a little more tasteful. I could have gotten that meal at a meat and three for 1/3 of the price.

We were staying at the Omni Grove Park, and we didn't want to brave the cold outside to enjoy other Asheville cuisine. This was a wonderful spot--quiet, good food, great service. We had a very enjoyable dining experience; and we would return if the occasion arose.

The picture attached is to illustrate the spectacular view that we enjoyed during our dining experience.

We ordered the shrimp and grits and it was not good. The shrimp and grits themselves were good, but there was a gravy poured on it that did not go with the dish. Dessert was great. The soft drinks come from the bar tap and were watered down. Dessert was very good. There are not many main dinner entrees to choose from. The view is breathtakingly beautiful.

We were there for my birthday and Timothy made me feel extra special. If your other servers are this great, then you have a wonderful staff. Thanks again for a special dinner.

 (Richmond)·Dined on January 15, 2018

I really struggled with my ratings on this one and whether I would recommend this restaurant to a friend. Let me start by stating that our service was terrible. Our server was inattentive, flippant and did not seem to care that she was there to serve us. Perhaps that colors my overall impression of the restaurant. The food was good but frankly not great. We had the Kobe beef meatloaf and the burger. Presentation of the food was very good. Atmosphere was quite nice. I would recommend the restaurant if you are staying at the Inn and do not want to go out on a frigid night into Asheville (like us). With that all said, I would be willing to give it one more try on our next visit back to the Grove Park Inn.

We came with our two sons for an early dinner while on vacation. We had such a wonderful time! My husband had the shrimp and grits which were amazing. Both kids had a cheeseburger which they enjoyed very much. I had the pulled pork sandwich which was probably the best I’ve ever had. Their beer menu wasn’t the most interesting but there were several good options as well as cocktails. Our server was great- attentive and full of great recommendations. We had a beautiful view if the sunset over the mountains from our table by the window. It made for a fantastic end to our evening.

Absolutely loved it! Everyone was extremely friendly and obviously customer service oriented. The food was great, atmosphere unbeatable and our waiter David (do not know his last name) was impeccable. He was warm, friendly and didn't rush us and the place was busy. Barely a wait for the food. Everything was PERFECT! Coming back in March with my husband for our 25th wedding anniversary. Spectacular!

 (Los Angeles)·Dined on January 2, 2018

We were surprised and disappointed by the lack of options on the menu, it is a very limited menu. Plus the few specialty main courses they had were SUPER expensive; single person servings of main courses in the $50 - $60 and more range. What we had was decent enough but not a great value and just wished we had some more choices.

On the plus side the service was great. We were seated on a very cold night next to a large (certainly closed) window and after a bit realized we were going to be cold. Our nice waitress promptly found us a table by the large and roaring fire place in someone else's station where we got great service. Staff was great all around.

We have dined at the Edison several times before and decided we should go back more often. The food and service are consistently above average. I had the southern style Cobb salad - different from anything I've had before; delicious and huge. And we never tire of the wonderful view!

Wonderful restaurant at the Grove Park Inn. We stayed at the inn for New Years Eve, and went to the bar at Edison in the afternoon for mussels and a beer while watching football. We went back to our room and got dressed up for the evening and back to Edison for a fancy dinner. Service and food were wonderful both time. It is upscale, but hip. Loved it! There is an amazing outdoor terrace with lounge furniture and TVs if the weather is nice!
