Wonderful, inventive food. Save room for the Butter Cake desert, outstanding. Asked to be seated away from traffic patterns on Open Table, so they tried to put use by the entrance to the kitchen. We were promptly seated at another table.

We had a fantastic Mother's Day dinner for 5! The food and service was excellent. We especially enjoyed the cheese board and the chocolate mousse dessert. Matthew was our server and he was fantastic! Very memorable dinner for all of us!

Service, location and parking were great. The tuna appetizer was out of this world. But that’s where it stopped. The entree’s were very bland, despite the unique and interesting combinations. The smoked salmon was very disappointing, hiding good salmon inside bland scrambled eggs and the chicken and biscuit were cooked perfectly but had zero taste, I can’t even remember the 3rd dish we ordered (obviously not memorable). It was Mother’s Day, may have just been a special menu?? Will try one more time just in case. If not just to come back for the tuna and mango slaw.

Mother’s Day meal. We had our 2yr old and 4 month old. As usual the food is spectacular at Edison, but the hostess, waiter and management made our 2yr old feel special too even though at the end he had had enough for the day. Edison is our go to and always will be. Spectacular meal and spectacular service.

I have eaten here several times and will continue to do so. They have a variety of food choices that are all unique and delicious, from octopus to duck, it has all been very good. Drinks are likewise quality with a good variety. Finally, service is friendly, professional, and prompt! Overall, it’s a great place to enjoy and keep in rotation when eating out in Tampa.

Excellent service and delicious food.
Steak tartar app was nicely presented with mushrooms and a blue cheese powder. It was very flavorful.
The red snapper entree was perfectly seared and accompanied by tasty sides of mashed yukons, spinach and mushrooms with a glaze of ginger honey.
Generously poured cocktails and wine.
Amazing chef and personnel.

We returned to Edison after a one year+ absence due to Covid, and we were not disappointed. In fact, we were thrilled by the physical improvements in lighting, layout and additional dining space. What remained the same as pre-Covid was the exceptional cuisine, fine service and wine and beverage options. We continue to regard Edison as the best dining venue in Tampa.

Our experience was awesome, good food, interesting flavors, colors, textures, we loved it. We had a cocktail and also excellent and unique flavored. Outstanding dessert, excellent flavor combination. Finally the price was high, but to get in return that high quality of plates, flavors that you won’t taste anywhere else, we where happy to paint it and to return in the near future. Excellent restaurant choose.

Beef tartare and pork belly were amazing, filet mignon was cooked perfectly and duck was nicely done too. The banana dessert and the butter cake were so good too. One of my new favorite Tampa spots. Go if you’re adventurous and willing to try new things.

My Dad and I stumbled into Edison's one day last year for lunch and have been coming back ever since even though we live up by USF. The place has a lot going for it, not least of which is the caring staff, a group educated on the food, not just serving it up. Our waiter was also our bartender and made us some killer cocktails (don't be shy about ordering some pepper laced drinks -- they're the bomb). And the food! Inventive, but not overly "foodie" oriented. Hearty, but not too much. Good good stuff. This latest meal was shared with 4 others not familiar with Edison's and they loved it (thank you for making us look good). Can't say enough good stuff about this place.

The restaurant is beautiful - although could have done without Guy's Grocery Games playing on the TVs throughout the restaurant... Lowered the high-class level they were trying to achieve. It's a little confusing when walking in since it appears the door is on the street but it's actually on the back side of the restaurant. Reservations for 6PM and didn't leave until about 8:30 - service was slow and not properly paced. Requested salads before entrees but they all arrived together. Server (who was also the bartender) struggled to engage with us as he was busy with other tables and the drink service. Food.... You can tell Edison is challenging themselves with their entire menu using a plethora of components with each dish but due to this, they don't come together really well. It fell flat for me overall and I wouldn't return.
