Great except for relatively non-exciting desserts.

Chocolate pyramid - basically similar to a large Hersey's chocolate kiss and without promised Grand Marnier.

Food and service were outstanding, as always. Eating outside was fine; car noise was only a little bothersome. Brad needs to leave his mask alone when he come to talk to his guests. We can hear and understand him fine with his mask properly on.

Every experience at Edwins is fantastic, whether it is dine in, their amazing 4 for $40, or anything from the butcher shop or bakery.

The service is impeccable, the food is beyond reproach and Brandon is such a superstar. Can’t wait for another reason to go back!

This was my first time dining at Edwin's. I met a friend who had been several times and she raved about the quality of the food and the politeness and attentiveness of the staff. We had an excellent meal sitting comfortably outside on the enclosed patio area. There were propane gas heaters to keep us warm as it was a cool evening. The waiters were all polite, attentive and exceptional in their service. I also valet parked my car and received great service there as well.
The food is terrific and worth the cost as the quality, presentation and taste are all excellent.
Next time we'll order the souffle for desert ahead of time and give it a try. I hear it is excellent. Thank you.

We had a lovely time seated outdoors with socially distant tables, patio heater under a tent, attentive service and mask wearing wait staff. We had been doing carry out for the last 6 months, but splurged to bring out of town family for a 2 couple retirement celebration. We miss the tableside prep of LeBurger but enjoyed it neverthless prepared in the kitchen. The escargots were small but tender and served hot. The canard à l'orange was up to our expectations and the sommelier helped us pick a perfect wine. A delightful late fall evening.

Our server forgot to order the souffle, so there was a long pause leading us not to wait for the souffle. Timing and service could improve....sometimes long gaps.

Very impressive! This was our first time there. We chose indoor seating - they have outdoor seating available with heaters under a tent. Tables were well-spaced indoors - we had absolutely no COVID concerns. Quality of food met all expectations for a high-end restaurant. My lobster bisque and steak au poivre were outstanding! Portions were substantial. My wife had their seafood special with a salad and was very pleased. Service was pleasant and attentive. Heard they're opening another place soon across Shaker Square where Fire had been. That will be worth checking out. A worthy special occasion restaurant.

The food is overall really good. It did feel like their prices went up a bit and they are starting to get a bit expensive. Most of the dishes were great but I still am not a huge fan of most of their dishes centered around fish. The staff is the best part of the restaurant. They are helpful and very friendly.

Exquisite cuisine. Impeccable service. Outstanding service. Cozy little shelter with a fireplace on a rainy night. The mixology staff was terrific. The selection of spirits was expansive and unique. The wine list was extensive. Foie gras; seafood sausage, roasted duck and strip steak with green peppercorn sauce were delicious. This place is a gem. Loved the entire experience.

Outstanding food. Had the oysters and artichokes for appetizers, both were excellent! Oysters were large, not gritty. I had the scallops and my husband had the grouper for our main dishes, both cooked perfectly. Service was very attentive. We love their whole mission too! Highly recommend

Food was great, service was very nice, however appetizers and salads came out at same time and from time we ordered to receiving our food was 50 minutes. We sat outside which was mostly full, very few people sitting indoors, so overall have difficult time hearing they were packed, which was reason for delay. $160 meal for 2, not including tips for server and valet.

This was our first experience at Edwins and they did not disappoint. We came for our anniversary and could not have been happier. The staff was professional, friendly and knowledgeable. The food was excellent, everything was done to perfect. Chocolate lovers need to order the chocolate pyramid for dessert, it heavenly. We certainly will return.

As always, our meals & service at Edwin's were wonderful. The restaurant has adapted to COVID 19 by having the inside tables very spread out, as well as seating people outside with a heater. My halibut was delicious as was my husband's steak au poivre. The wait staff were knowledgeable & attentive.

I loved sitting outside in the atmosphere created. We were comfortable and had good service. I had the duck but I would probably get seafood next time. All servers really made our night. The Riesling was excellent. A memorable evening
