                        A little pricey, but hey, this is Disney. The theme of the place (decoration) was great and very “way back” in appearance. The entertainment (keyboards, vocalist, bassist) was high caliber. A bit loud, but thoroughly enjoyable!

                        Reservation made for 2 at 7.30pm. Drinks came at 7.45pm, food at 8.15pm. 5 mins after receiving starters mains arrived. We asked them to return to the kitchen as we weren’t ready for them, server not happy. Supervisor spoke to us we explained situation and asked for mains after finishing starter with at least a 10 min break in between service. One starter was breaded octopus and breaded veg, unfortunately more breaded scraps than ingredient, other starter okay hanging bacon. While still eating starter another attempt was made to serve mains which was refused….mains 1 x crab balls very bland but edible. 1x ribs which was okay but the coleslaw had too much vinegar dressing which killed the taste overall. A manager came to speak apologised for the octopus and stated we would not be charged for it. No mention of the poor service we had experienced with regards to the food delivery. All in all not a good dining experience. The entertainment was mediocre the band were off the stage more than performing.

                        The food and ambience was amazing. We were there for an early dinner. The service was very quick, but the tables and chairs make it clear they don't want you to linger very long. I've had more comfortable seating at a fast food outlet.

                        This was our second visit to Edison’s. Ordered The candied bacon. Was ok served cold and most likely had been sitting for awhile. Ordered the Edison burger. It ok but not especially great. The ambience is nice but don’t go here for the food. There are much better places to get a better meal.

                        The organic tomato soup was delicious but the grilled salmon was even more amazing. It literally melted in your mouth. My husband had the prime rib and he said it was the best he’s had. A serving of horseradish would have topped it off. Highly recommend. Waiter was okay but never came back once meal had been served to see if we needed any more drinks or horseradish, but maybe they were shorthanded.

                        Was celebrating an anniversary, the server never introduced himself to us and just did not feel welcomed overall. The cheesecake was not cold and felt like it had been sitting out. I had heard great reviews before, so we were very disappointed

                        I dont want to use my phone for a menu. I ordered a southern comfort and coke and the drink was not good. I ordered a salad instead of fries and they brought me fries. Had to advise I wanted a salad. I won't be going there again.

                        We wanted a table downstairs but the server Sierra was very rude and told us it would be at least 30mins even though there were tables available

                        Service was slow to start. Good burgers, but the fries were cold and not great. Way overpriced, but I guess that’s what you get in Disney Springs. Great atmosphere and entertainment. Would recommend.

                        Our waiter was very good. However, he could have used a helper. He had too many tables for one person. It was amazing how he was able to maintain his composure and be very pleasant throughout. We were first seated right in front of the stage. Knowing what that meant, we asked for another table immediately. When the preformers came on we were very happy we thought of moving in advance. The prices are high.

                        We had a reservation specifying it was a birthday dinner and they tried to seat our party of 6 at a bistro table for 2. FYI…the grill cheese can be split. Our server was fantastic, but everything else was mediocre.
