The best meal I’ve ever had. Period. Outstanding service. Pleasant & knowledgeable waitstaff. Off kilter food options & delicious cocktail pairings.
The only negative was the valet driver working that evening did not know how to drive stick. Not that I care, I found it humorous.
Simply excellent. In every way. Thanks Jillian.
Excellence! Delicious food, great drinks and Tyler our waiter was top notch! Can't wait to return!!!
Great and interesting food! Appreciate the originality, a little overpriced but enjoyed the experience
Best food in town. Cocktails are great too, very creative selection.
The atmosphere is on the noisy side. More set up like a bar than a restaurant. Food was ok, nothing to write home about and a bit pricey for what you get. Drinks were good, but again on the pricey side. There are other places with better food, atmosphere and prices.
Edison is a very nice restaurant with an ever-changing menu from a James Beard award winning chef. While the experience is very good and the dishes are interesting, I do not believe the food justifies the extraordinary prices. Edison is one of the priciest restaurants in Tampa. We much prefer Mise en Place, Pane Rustica and Boca. We split a burrata/tomato salad which had a hot spicy gelatin in the dish. The tomatoes were great along with some relatively mild peppers but the gelatin was far too hot for our taste. As for entrees, I had a scallops/oyster dish set in a combination of grains, mushrooms etc. The scallops were fine but I really did not relish the rest of the dish. My wife had a grouper in an interesting bowl with a variety of ingredients. It was the better of the two dishes. Our friends swear by Edison and it is worth a visit. We just don't prefer it to other choices in town.
Amazing! One of my favorite foodie restaurants in all of Tampa Bay area! JBF Chef so be ready for a palette sensation. I recommend going with another foodie friend so you can share dishes and enjoy as much as possible!
I think the chef here is coasting on a reputation earned. She is obviously checked out and oblivious to the quality of the experience these days. It’s terrible
Tonight as in other recent experiences we had poor service, and simply poor quality food.
The beat thing on the menu was the cheese board.
Then I was served grouper sitting in a bowl of broth, looked like boiled fish and tasted like boiled fish. My date was served scallops and fried oysters in a lake of broth. It was just unpleasant and not worthy of the price.
Our waitress was missing in action most of the night. We got to sit in our dirty dishes and half eaten entrees while she was nowhere to be found.
Desert butter cake and ice cream took 20 minutes to arrive. The first bite was horribly sweet and of course our coffee cups offered no respite as they were emptied while we waited.
This is supposedly a top chef in Tampa Bay. Yet, Outback offers an arguably similar experience.
we won’t be back.
Fun food and drink experience. Lots of change and experimentation on the menu.
Very creative food and interesting cocktails. Our server, Jillian, was excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant as one of the best in Tampa.
Overall the food is creative and well prepared. The salads and desserts were excellent, but my fish was a bit dry. They serve no bread which detracted from the meal. The prices are a bit high for the casual ambiance and the food.
I would bet the farm that the esteemed chef at this restaurant didn’t intend to have our lunch selection come out the way it did.
Bland entree soaked in a multitude of flavors (think porridge) with hot jalapeños thrown in as a surprise (the server didn’t give us the heads up). Seafood was soggy and tasteless.
If this was my first time here, I wouldn’t be returning.
I’ll assume wait staff and kitchen had an off day. Slow, inattentive service and not the usual people there. Should one be asking for drink refills at this caliber establishment???
Can’t recall this negative experience in the whole time this restaurant has been opened.
Great food! Recommend trying the oysters. Very well presented and awesome flavour. Good wine selection too. Nice venue for a special occasion.
We always love going there. Food is worth it. Thank you.
In Tampa for a work trip and tried Edison. It was such a good choice! The burrata was the best I’ve ever had - so many unique components. I wish I had a restaurant like this where I live.
Talented--no gifted--chef. Excellent taste, temperature and texture on everything. Interesting combinations that were just amazing on the palate. Bar was great too. Had a couple of wonderful Bourbon Old Fashioned cocktails at the bar first with a few appetizers . I highly recommend edison, especially to foodies and epicureans.
Server Roy was awesome. Matched our drinks with food, made us feel welcome. Been here twice and will be back.
Great experience, good food, tasty drinks, great presentation
Great drink menu. Interesting and delicious food. Great service
Excellent crafted cocktails
This place is more than fabulous. Hope Tampa can keep this chef! She is a talent among the best.
Every single thing we ordered was amazing. My only regret is that I don’t live in Tampa and can’t make this a regular occurrence. A second location in Miami would be a good business opportunity ...
Lamb-amazing. Beets-refreshing. Bone marrow-outstanding.
Delicious food and drinks. Great service and a homey neighborhood setting. Everything is very uniquely prepared with no doubt that the chef and staff really put a lot of work and care. Will definitely be going back.
All around good experience. Outstanding cocktails and food was great.
Phenomenal food & service!
Edison NEVER disappoints. The food has incredible flavor, cooked perfectly and perfect portions. Service is also stellar. Oh, cocktails are amazing.
Inventive, delicious food with great service. Everything was fresh, well executed, and flavorful. I can't wait to come back. Seriously, the service was excellent. Great explanation of dishes, thoughtful suggestions, and very attentive. We picked a perfect date night spot!
Eclectic atmosphere, wonderful food, super and knowledgeable wait staff with the added bonus of inventive mixologist! Don’t miss this this dining experience!
Lamb shank + Bone marrow are amazing!
Good Food, fun atmosphere. Pork Belly was AMAZING!
One of my favorite places for unique and delicious creations. I had the scollops dish and each different location I put my fork in the dish was a different experience, flavor and texture. All five of us raved about the food. I think their drinks are overpriced, but that's what you get at a small boutique eatery I guess.
I was excited to get a reservation with a few coworkers last minute. Everything I read was interesting and positive. The reception was right on time, friendly and quickly seated us. Our server (Taylor) came by quickly and was very full of energy and passionate about the menu which he knew very well. The meal was served in quick time and was absolutely wonderful with each and every bite. Taylor's descriptions of each meal were spot on. Every dish was wonderful in its own way. capped off with some fabulous desserts. I enjoyed everything so much that I brought a good friend back the next evening to try something different from the menu!
My favorite Tampa Bay area restaurant, a creative chef, quality ingredients and attentive service contribute to one of the best dining experiences in the area. Cocktail menu is also innovative and fun to sample.
This place is awesome. The food is always amazing, service is excellent, and the bartenders are absolutely top notch.
Girls Trip To celebrate birthday. We are foodies and always up for something unique. This did not disappoint! Loved!
Went for a double date. Great atmosphere for catching up. Amazing service. Was a little overpriced and the food was pretty good but not as good as I expected. Drinks were a little too sugary. I’d go back again but stick to the dishes we enjoyed: lamb chop and pork belly. The brown butter cake was the best by far.
Delicious, interesting menu. Definitely recommend for foodies
Food and service was top notch. I consider this restaurant to be the very best in Tampa. Potato crusted oysters are a must. Octopus was wonderful. Pork belly incredible. Mollee Lamb probably misspelled was awesome. My highest recommendation
