    Edwin's never fails to exceed our expectations. We dined on a Tuesday evening and to our surprise the patio was open! It was beautiful and quiet out there, only a couple other tables sat outside. Our group of 3 felt like it was our official start of our outdoor dining season. Our server was fabulous, food and drinks were delicious. We had the bread pudding for dessert, three of us shared it and it was out of this world. Fantastic evening at Edwin's, as usual!

    Our server had a great deal of difficulty understanding or remembering our orders! Fortunately others seemed to recognize this and pitched in. Our main courses were not put in but when a young woman (floor manager?)recognized this , they were immediately cooked and a desert was compted. As we were not in a hurry and understood the mission of the establishment, we would not hesitate to return. food was superb!! And worth waiting for ☺️

    Excellent service! Beautiful space! We enjoyed our dinners; we started with the lobster bisque which was delicious. I had the duck & risotto. My husband had the rabbit with roasted potatoes & braised fennel. Both were very tasty. We shared the crème brûlée for dessert which was perfectly creamy. So happy that we found Edwins while we were in Cleveland for the eclipse! Great food & great to support their mission.

    This is one of the loveliest restaurants I have been to! The ambiance was perfect, very French, and the waitstaff friendly and accommodating without being oppressive. The food was FANTASTIC, and there were vegan options. We had artichoke hearts, escargot and frogs’s legs as appetizers and the frog’s legs were so tender- they melted in your mouth under the perfectly fried batter. For dinner we had vegan gnocchi, duck leg and venison, all perfect. For dessert we had Grand Marnier soufflé and crème brûlée, a perfect ending. The cocktails were creative, yummy and potent. We had theater reservations and our waiter made sure we were done on time. We ate early, and it wasn’t crowded, but I hope they get busier as the evening goes on because they deserve to be bustling! I would love to return here next time I’m in Cleveland.

    Excellent food and cool concept (i.e., training ground for those with backgrounds dealing with legal troubles). Cheese cart is amazing, love the fireplace in the back too. Knowing most of the staff were training in new careers helped immensely with patience/understanding of minor slip ups too.

    Edwin’s continues to be one of my favorite restaurants on the East Side. Food was delicious, service was very good and friendly, ambience was elegant. We really wanted frog’s legs and being people with easily sated appetites only had soup and salad to start. All was wonderful. The chestnut fennel soup was lovely and the frog’s legs were very nummy. Many things on the menu I would like to try, so we’ll be back soon

    Love dining at Edwins. It’s a restaurant with a positive mission. If I’m going to spend that amount for dinner it makes me feel good to know it’s good for a cause. The mission to give people that were previously incarcerated a career and job is so important! Our server Courtney did an Amazing job and was a sweetheart!! Food everything was Delicious! Great job Brandon I am always impressed!

    The food was very good. I ordered the filet and it was seasoned to perfection and cooked to the desired temperature I asked for. My wife got the scallops and she was very pleased. It was a packed house on Saturday night and our waiter Joe did a good job tending to us as well as his other tables. The prices were on the high end, but the quality of the food and atmosphere of the restaurant some how made you forget about the prices. Two thumbs up 👍🏻

    This is an amazing restaurant. The staff is friendly and attentive. The food is outstanding and the prices are very fair. My favorite is the wine list….some really great bottles on the list that you wont find anywhere else. The best part is that while dining here you are supporting a great cause. Such a gem to have this in Cleveland.

    Our group of six had an amazing dinner at Edwin’s. Highlights were the cheese cart they brought to the table as well as the bananas foster which was also prepared table side. Brandon actually came out and personally visited with our table which was very meaningful. Wonderful atmosphere and an overall great experience.

    My wife and I went for a Valentine's Day dinner at Edwins. We ordered a pre-dinner cocktail and then selected the prix fixe menu with wine pairings. Our first course came out very soon after our cocktail arrived. The wine pairings didn't arrive with the first course, so we reminded our server to check with the bar. The wine arrived a few minutes later, but we weren't clear whether we received the correct wine with the different first courses that we ordered. A similar issue happened with the main course, although it didn't take as long for the wine pairings to arrive. The bottom line is that the food and wine pairings were great, but the service was a little disorganized (although it was busy for Valentine's Day).

    We always enjoy dining at Edwin's. The food is excellent. We each had the scallops for Plat Principale and the Salade Nicoise for entree, along with cocktail and wine with dinner (an excellent Vouvray). Our table was near the fire place, where it is quiet and semi-private. We always look forward to returning to Edwin's; it's always very special.

    We have been there many times in the past. This time was one of the best. Cocktails by Jamal the bartender were both excellent. We had soups as appetizers and they also are excellent. I had steak for main course and my wife had salmon. Both delightful. Service was friendly and timely. Not too much noise in the place. Overall, an experience to remember.

    Our server was obviously new; regardless, she was polite and attentive. When she did not have an answer to one of our questions, she sought out someone who did. I would suggest that she speak louder when addressing guests. All 4 of us had a difficult time hearing her. Otherwise, we really enjoyed our experience at Edwin's (it was all of our first visit to Edwins)
