    The food by far was amazing and the staff are friendly. Only thing that didn’t make this a 5 star post was how long it took to receive service/food.

    The scallops with pork belly jam were the best scallops I've ever had. Perfectly seared, still extremely tender inside, the green curry sauce was perfectly seasoned, all of the veg was perfectly cooked, you guys nailed it. Every bit as good as any Michelin-starred place we've been to. Whoever was making scallops around 6:00 on Friday 9/23, you're killin it. The Water Cooler Hour is the best "happy hour" I've ever been to. The 5 for $30 deal is a great move. Our cocktails were perfect. The old fashioned and margarita were exactly as they should be, and the Swamp Runner, and Smoke Surfer were perfectly balanced house creations. A big ice cube in the old fashioned would be good, but for $9, I'm not complaining. Desserts were incredible as well. The sweet corn sugar-crusted butter cake is exactly as good as it sounds. The contrasts in that dessert are so satisfying. Incorporating hot and cold, crunchy and creamy, coarse and smooth all in one dessert makes hopping back and forth between the coarse, crunchy sugar crust on the cake, and the rich, creamy smoked paprika brown butter ice cream absolutely delightful. All in all, one of the best meals we've had in a long time. The chefs are on point with the menu choices and quality control, and the cooks are absolutely killing it on all fronts. Thank you for the awesome dinner, guys, keep up the incredible work.

    The Edison never disappoints! My wife and I went for our anniversary and enjoyed every moment. We were welcomed by friendly faces and sat quickly even when we arrived 20 minutes before our reservation. The drink, appetizers, entrees, and dessert were all delicious and well presented. Matthew, our server, was amazing as well. My wife called it the best meal she has ever had. We will be coming back for sure!

    We started with the potato crusted oysters. Amazingly delicious!! We shared the octopus. Cooked to perfection with tasty Accoutrements. Than came the Cod. It was thick, flaky and light. So yummy and perfectly paired with Turkish style accoutrements. To top off the meal we ordered a sinful chocolate dessert. Our server Mitchel was friendly, attentive, and right on target with suggestions. He has obviously worked at Edison’s for some time. His selection on a wine pairing was also spot on. Our only complaint would be the noise level. We dined at 6:30pm on a Tuesday evening. We changed our seats from near the bar to a row away. Still difficult to hear each other clearly. I could only imagine the noise level on a busy night. All in all, a gastronomic success!!

    As amazing as I’ve become accustomed to expect. edison gets the point when it comes to delivering an exquisite dining experience. Simplicity of presentation- no gimmicks - belies a flavor range that can only be summed up as exceptional. Staff is friendly and they have on point recommendations across the entire meal, drinks, starters, main and dessert choices were excellent. Keep up the great work!

    Ambitious fusion cuisine comes off with mixed results. I had a cocktail called the Buzz Cut that was overly infused with rosemary making it bitter. First course called Fish and Chips and featured a bartered and fried basil leaf topped with very spicy poki, a moussoline and topped with a sunny side fried quail egg (3 per order). All I could taste was heat from the spice and acidity. I’ll never understand why chefs use expensive ingredients like quail eggs then blow them out of the water with overly assertive spices and ingredients. My main was seared scallops with an (again) assertively spicy green curry sauce, kaboche squash (sp?) , haricot vert and fried yuca. Scallops were amazing! Even with the spicy green curry sauce the sweetness of the scallops (perfectly seared and slightly rare in the center) came through. It was a great combination but not for the faint of heart. Squash was yummy. Deep fried yuca was very dry. Smaller, frites size pieces might have been better. Dessert was peanut butter “brittle” topped with banana ice cream and a glazed, Bananas Foster style slice of banana. Delicious with great peanut and banana flavors and textures. Edgy food if you’re a curious foodie and want to explore. On the pricy side (my tab was $135 with tip). I sat at the bar and the service was perfunctory. A pleasant ma’am who appeared to be an owner or manager checked in occasionally to ask if I was enjoying the meal. Over all, I did.

    My husband’s 75th and all he wanted was a nice dinner at Edison. Because of his hearing disability I requested a table in a quieter corner and Edison could accommodate. Our waiter Dillon seemed so young to be serving but he knew the menu well. He was every enthusiastic about the menu and he was so genuine in answers to our inquiries. Absolutely loved the cabbage rolls and if I were not a smaller eater I would have had a second portion. Different and delicious. My husband ate the 5 course tasting menu (not typical of our dining style). I got to taste everything served and his food ( mine too) is the very reason why we come to Edison. We have dined here a many years and it is always the same, High quality food, unusual ingredients, differently prepared, artistically presented and overall a pleasing challenge for our tastebuds. Not to mention we are not big dessert eaters but you cannot finish a meal here without dessert. In a nutshell, Edison is not your mama’s cooking so be prepared to not have a salad, a protein, a starch and a veggie. Edison is truly a dining experience in a casual setting.

    Our server, Allegra was fantastic!!! The cheese board was to-die-for! The short rib dish was “eh” overall. But my family knows me for my really great short ribs, so we should have selected another dish. Overall, phenomenal experience! Allegra really made our anniversary special with the Prosecco toast as well. We will be back!
