    Food & Service Spectacular. Would of liked a better table away from kitchen and host station, especially since we made a reservation and were celebrating a very special romantic milestone. Also for a restaurant of this caliber there should be no tv’s.

    We finally tried Edison for our wedding anniversary. The service and drinks are fantastic with an overall high quality gastronomic experience, however, I was hoping to have more vegetarian options instead of substitutes. With how unique the experience could be, my only suggestion would be to add more vegetarian options.

    I'm happy we had a gift card because although some dishes were good, some were not and I don't feel you get the value for your money. They literally have six menus that were given to us and it was very confusing. We felt rushed and were asked every minute by 4 different servers if they could take our plates, but not one if them asked why we barely touched an entire plate. We asked for no mushrooms which they said they could do, still put shrooms on it, didn't enjoy it even without the shrooms, and left it all on the plate. We did however get a fantastic free dessert. I would go back just to have a dessert but probably not otherwise.

    The menu was limited and overpriced. The food needed more flavor. We ordered the burrata which was ok. Asked for bread to go with it and it took forever and then a few small slivers of bread were delivered. We also ordered the fried chicken. The entire dish was incredibly bland. They may have forgotten the gravy or just didn’t use much. The dumplings tasted like flour and water. Desperately needed more flavor. We also ordered the seared fish. It’s was decent but a very small portion. Our server was great. The atmosphere was good. The food disappointing.

    Allegra our server was NOT ATTENTIVE. She took too long to return with cocktails 3 times and blamed the bartender and bar staff. Food came out too slow. Fish was under cooked although when she was asked if it would be well done she said yes. Never filled water glasses. Never asked us if we need another cocktail or desert. The worst experience I have ever had there and I have been coming for years. Disappointed does even come close to describe it.

    I went with a friend for the “water cooler hour” offering which they have from 4-6 on weekdays. We arrived at 5 and had plenty of time to enjoy the menu selection as everything came out quickly and tasted delicious! The restaurant was quiet due to the early hour. The food was on point and the service was attentive, friendly, and helpful. It wasn’t my first visit and it won’t be my last!

    Just moved here from New Orleans about 1.5 months ago. I have really been struggling finding decent restaurants here in Tampa but this place ……. THIS PLACE RESTORED ALL HOPE I THOUGHT I LOST. Literally every bite of everything was amazing. Butter salad. Octopus. Grilled Chicken. Amazing. Learned that the chef used to be the executive at Berns - it shows. Her craft is amazing. Book ASAP.

    First time there couples date night (a group of six). "All" the food was delicious and nicely paired. Strongly recommend stepping out of your comfort zone of food and trying something out of the ordinary; you won't be disappointed! Our server was fantastic and full of great recommendations. The hostesses were gracious and accommodating. Crowd was warm and there for the same reason-to enjoy the food and family/friends they were with. We'll be back.

    This is my very first time not giving Edison’s (which I love) all 5 stars. Food was very good, but my snapper dish was not as amazing as usual. The snapper was fine, but the sides with the snapper were bland, other than the harissa sauce. On the positive side, my friend’s fried chicken was done to perfection. Moist inside, crispy outside with great flavor and yummy gravy. The butter lettuce salads were as fresh and tasty as ever. If you have never tried Edison’s Fried chicken, you should! Also, I normally order the octopus, and it has been consistently amazing.
