Very creative oysters. Apps all incredible--tuna and burrata, so many different flavors on the plate(s) that all worked together. Octopus well cooked with some great char on it and scallops, though my least favorite dish we had, were also great. Service was excellent from the manager who sat us, to our server himself, to the food runners, etc. Always love a visit here when in Tampa, not sure if there's anywhere else like it in town!
Overall it was well presented, delicious… to spicy… it took away the experience on all the food… ahi tuna, scallops. Service was good. Tone down the spice… it will make the whole flavor experience 4 times better. Very clever the chef
Awesome service, delicious food! Highly recommend!
Extremely noisy. Could not even hear my husband sitting next to me.
Food and drinks were awesome! Our server, Carolina, was able to tell us about all the menu items in wonderful detail! All of the waitstaff were polite and attentive! Made a special Anniversary dinner for our sister and brother-in-law special!
Excellent food, service and wine. Highly recommend!
I dine out multiple times a week and consider myself a foodie. I have never had a waiter or host anywhere near the caliber of Matthew and Brett, respectively.
Brett called to confirm my reservation early in the day, abs when I was challenged to find parking he took my call and took the time to guide me to alternate open and safe parking areas. Please don’t let the small parking lot dissuade you- there are plenty of convenient options.
Mathew is the most knowledgeable waiter I have ever met in my life! He spoke in detail about each eclectic dish and helped educate us on many ingredients that were new to us and guided us in making spectacular selections!! Same with the drink selections - when this gentleman spoke about the dishes he was so enthusiastic and delightful - and really talked up their staff and chef. He impressed us so much.
Food - incredible!! Must try the honeydew gaspacho and potato fried oysters - sooooo good.
This place has been totally remodeled since Covid so if you haven’t dined lately it’s a must-see! Chic and fun!
Love, love, love! My new favorite spot!
Edison Food Lab is a true Tampa Restaurant Champion, which is fitting in the City of Championships! The food was wonderful and very interesting appetizers and share plates. The drinks are top-notch! I love it and look forward to every trip to Tampa!
I always love it. Great Food, Environment & Services! Plus Vegan Cake!
SO impressed with Edison! The service, food, ambiance…everything was top notch! The portion sizes were much larger than anticipated with this style of higher end menu. “small plates” and “bites” were very generous! Really a great value for what your getting…It was so fun ordering several apps and sharing. I will definitely recommend and return!
Food and drinks are amazing as well as the service. The whole team is attentive, friendly and has very good knowledge of their food and drinks. Will absolutely be back and love love the buratta!!
Great food and drinks! Service was wonderful! Will go again
It’s always such a pleasure to dine at Edison’s. The food is creative with beautiful presentation and indescribably delicious. We started with the potato encrusted oysters which melted in our mouths. Next course was buratta with pesto and shishito peppers, followed by pork belly. We finished with foie gras and iberico ham. I wish Edison’s would open a sister restaurant in St Pete!
Exceptional food with a phenomenal server!
Flys everywhere on outside seating , placed where you can see like back of the house (dumpster and people smoking cigarettes) with quite the pungent dumpster smell
Outstanding experience at a fabulous restaurant. First of all, nearly the entire staff has been vaccinated. If not vaccinated they have to wear a mask as
Corporate policy is very strict. Chef Allie has created a great menu. Food is fresh and well prepared. Our server Jillian made excellent recommendations. We eat at Edison frequently as it is consistently good. This is not a traditional “steak the menu is creative. It changes frequently but some things are always there like the wonderful potato crusted oysters. There are excellent wines by the glass and Tomas and other bartenders prepare great cocktails. We drive from Sarasota to eat at Edison’s. It is worth the 60 minute drive to have a wonder dinner experience.
Delicious food and great service!
Service and food were fantastic as always. Still one of my favorite spots in S Tampa.
First visit after years of trips to the Tampa/St Pete area - we are sorry we didn’t discover this place sooner. The food was phenomenal and service was outstanding.
First trip to tampa and didn’t get reservations at our first choice restaurant. We are so happy that Edison had a late night reservation slot. We loved everything about our experience: our server, Jillian was a rock star, very confident in all the food being created - we were not disappointed. The entire meal was a full gastronomy experience, creative dishes, beautiful presentation and fun mixed drinks. We will definitely be coming back!!
Food and cocktails were to die for. A little pricey but worth it.
Great food and service but easily the loudest restaurant I have ever been in.
Too many flies outside
Just having dinner with the family.
Outstanding quality with unusual food and drink elements made it a memorable dining experience for the three of us. Edison Food & Drink Lab is justly named.
Amazing service. Amazing food. Amazing drinks. A spectacular night!
Creative menu and presentation. Menu changes frequently so it is definitely on our list to go back and try them again. The theme for this visit appeared to be Asian Fusion. Portions were ample and prices reasonable for upscale dining.
Had a drink at the bar before dinner and enjoyed the Old Heights cocktail which was a creation of the bar tender and a combination of on Old Fashion and Manhattan.
Great food! Oysters, pork belly, cheese board, octopus and short ribs were delicious!
Great food and great service. Our server Jillian made sure everything was perfect. We had an enjoyable evening and looking forward to returning. Love the potato crusted oysters.
Interesting menu choices and fun to try new things!
Awesome experience. You must try the cocktail called "Carlos Said So!".
We had a great experience at Edison. Food was very good especially the steak and dessert. We also had a problem with a CA Pinot but our server switched it out for an Oregon pinot and everything was good from there. My only negative was the salami salad I got which was billed as a Cuban salad - not very good with big thick salami slices - needed to be cut much smaller. Next time we hope they'll have the pavlova cake again, which my wife desperately wanted:)
The staff is friendly and welcoming and the bartender was great. We opted to eat at the bar. The cocktails were amazing but the food just fell short. We shared the tuna tartare appetizer and the pork belly. While the quality of the food was there the flavor pairings just fell short. I would definitely go back for drinks only as they were a 10 out of 10.
Never disappointed. One of my favorite places to go out with friends and family
I cannot say enough about the level of curation that went into this food. Every dish had a wildly diverse palette of flavors along with an amazing aroma. Phenomenal presentation. Never have I experienced tears coming to my eyes by such insatiable food. Highly recommend for any occasion! Matthew was our server and very educated on the menu and ingredients as if he is the one who preheated each meal. Please come hungry because the appetizers are great, entrees of course are stellar, and for someone who isn’t a dessert person… it too was incredible!
Food was excellent, service was excellent, would highly recommend!
Father’s Day. The staff, the food…. It was all amazing! Second time visiting. Getting ready to make a third reservation!
Fabulous as always! Our go to place for special occasions. Creative drinks and food - always amazing!
