During the day, the Edison provides a playful dining family -style experience, but after 10 pm it transforms into an Adult-only venue focused on craft cocktails and Cabaret entertainment unique in Central Florida. Every night features a live band , singers and dancing and on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays costumed dancers, variety acts and a DJ make The Edison a real electric hot spot.

Great dining experience! Food is pricey but for a special occasion, it was worth it. Loved the specialty cocktails! The design of the space and attire worn by staff truly added to the whole experience.

This was our first time going here after hearing good things from family. We figured with Magical Dining it was a good deal. The food was okay. The caprese was good. The deviled eggs were too salty. Meatloaf dish was good. Fish and chips was mediocre. Fish was soggy, not crisp at all. The fries were over seasoned and too spicy. Beer is also over priced. $10 for a glass of Stella? The service was what made the experience. Probably won't be back.

We can not say enough about how ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL our experience was. The entire staff was super friendly. We had Lexi as our server and she was fabulous. Super sweet and did an AMAZING job. The atmosphere is incredible and the food was outstanding! We can not wait to return. Hopefully Lexi will be working that night also.

We had such a great time. The hostess told us they would do their best to get us a table ready prior to kitchen close. I did not realize their kitchen closes at 10pm, however, light snacks are offered till midnight or later I believe. However, we managed to get out order in prior to kitchen close, and the food was delicious. The star of the night though was our bartender, Mike. He went out of his way to help my fiancé order an off menu drink and he was able to replicate the same drink over an hour later. He also remembered us, as we’ve been to the bar before, but never for dinner. We had a burger and Mac n cheese as our entrees, and both were phenomenal. Thank you so much for a great night Mike and staff at The Edison!

We checked in for our reservation and the hostess said we could go have a drink at the bar while we waited 10 minutes. 10 minutes turned into 25 so we asked if our name was called and they said yes and then sat us a few minutes later. Why tell us to go to the bar if you aren’t even going to come over and check to see if the party is there?

Food was good. Duration of visit was very long with large waits between courses (2.5 hours total). Bill was discounted unknowingly, however a manager never came to table. Server was very enthusiastic and communicative, however would not return to the table for long time periods.

Dinner selection a bit limited; especially with so many great restaurants in the immediate area of The Edison. Did not appreciate other customers who had been on the dance floor being herded off the dance floor by an Edison employee to stand 3 deep in front of tables surrounding the dance floor; therefore blocking the view of the patrons at those tables of the professional performances. Our main reason for booking a table MONTHS in advance was to see the professional performances!

We have been to the Edison a few times and came later on this particular trip to enjoy the show. It was awesome. It was very very busy and noisy but that’s to be expected with that many people. Food was delicious!

Massive disappointment when we went on a Magical Dining month date. The service was extremely slow - waited 15 minutes for a bottle of beer and a glass of sangria. The salads were good, but in general the food was quite ordinary - the entrees were inexpensive for a Magical Dining experience (fish & chips and meatloaf). Desserts were a banana split and some gelato. Food definitely not a good value, even on the Magical Dining menu.
The worst of the experience was the service. When the entrees finally arrived, they were placed on our tables and that was the last of the waiter until we were half way through, when she was helping a nearby table, I asked for some lemon. Well the lemon didn't arrive until after I had finished. Desserts took another 25 minutes to arrive, even though these were fixed menu items!

We did not like where we were seated. Our table was on the end by the register. You were not busy at all but placed us over by nothing,! Our waitress was not very friendly, short with us! I had so looked forward to eating in your establishment. Very disappointed

Although the ambience was beautiful, the food did not live up to the same expectation. In fact it had to be the worst I've had in a very long time. We ordered the Mac n' Cheese which was missing the cheese. The fish and chips were heavily breaded and undercooked. The fish used was very thin...cheap brand, and the fries tasted as if they had been sitting for a long time. Nothing was fresh. The portion sizes were extremely small relative to the cost, so I'm surprised to read reviews referencing large portions. Fish and chips...$22 for three small pieces, kids Mac n' Cheese...$15. If you're trying to decide on where to eat at Disney Springs, The Edison should be crossed off the list.

I would have given this review a 5 star but the hostesses who provide the first impression of the restaurant really need to keep this in mind. They were impersonal and lacked basic social skills. Remember a smile goes a long way. Food, ambiance and waiting staff were fantastic!

It was a average meal for me and my daughter, and the food was just average as well. Alcohol was REALLY expensive. I think I spent $14.50 for a dirty martini. Waitress had to point out that there was an upcharge for Kettle one. Cheese board was really good and the Mac-n-cheese my daughter had looked really good. I had the short ribs which were average. Disney uses the "put gravy on anything" method to make the food better. It worked but only to the Average level for me. But the standard Disney food rumors/rules apply at the Edison. Average food, overpriced, good and friendly service but don't expect a bargain or 4-5 star tastes.
If you want to go, get an app or two to share, stay as far away from alcohol as you can, get an iced tea and get out of Disney springs and go to a real restaurant. Just understand that all the Disney springs eateries are about the same. Average overpriced food. But if you know that going in you will be okay and not disappointed.

Never been to this before. It food was not fantastic but very good. The service was great, although a on two occasions the brought food that was suppose to go to another table. We made a reservation and was taken in to be seated on time. I would go back to this restaurant again.
