The Edison was an amazing experience. The design, look and feel of the place really does make it seem like a 1920s speak easy. When we had our meal it was very quiet and peaceful. The food was amazing although some personal issues of mine were that there was not that big of a selection on the menu, the food was a tad over priced, my burger cost $20 where usually at other restaurants it would cost anywhere from $10-$15. Also personally I did not like the fries that came with said burger (which are the standard fries that come with most meals) as they were spicy. However a lot of thought had been taken into crafting a truly unique burger which is unlike any other restaurant's. Overall I would recommend the Edison and do plan on returning.

It’s in Disney Springs. Except to pay a lot for just ok food. Service was great though. Dried out rainbow carrots should never cost $9 and a dry double cut boneless pork chop should never cost $27.

All the food came out cold for the price I paid wasn't worth it I ended up throwing everything away. Went for the entertainment didn't realize the shows were spread out. Enjoyed the few shows I got to see.

The. Food. Was. Useless.
I expected the total package, as I was at at a Disney Springs restaurant, and the ambiance was great... The live music was wonderful.
... But the food....a limited menu, poorly executed. Ordered the signature burger and the prime rib. The steak was cold, lacking in any flavor or seasoning, and only came with a small choice of potato. The burger arrived 2 whole temperature levels different than ordered and was slapped together with about as much flair as a McDonald's cheeseburger. My drink, the electric mule, tasted like water with a hint of ginger. HUGELY disappointed with this visit.

Enjoyed our dinner. First time at The Edison. Waiter was really good and friendly, food did take a while to arrive. Tried the burger and Grilled Cheese. Tasty burger, excellent fries and tomato soup. A little loud with the live band, sit upstairs, will be a little less noisy. cool place though, definitely worth a try. Would be happy to return.

Prices seemed high. But I snacked well enough on the side of macaroni. The theming was to die for. Live musicians and stilt walkers were amazing. Wish the aerial artist had been there that day.

It took 15 minutes to simply get water and another 20 for our drinks. Our appetizer and dinner came out at the same time. Unfortunately my prime rib was cold when it came out but not worth sending back.

Amazing Service from Ashley. Just outright amazing. Great atmosphere with kids. Everything was perfect and fun. We ate at 545. Had a reservation for 515 and needed to adjust. One phone call and no problem. Atmosphere entertainment was great with scientists visiting our table to teach science tricks. Appetizers were at the table with in 10 minutes from our order. The kids split an adult grilled cheese and LOVED IT. could klnot be happier. Would go back anytime.

Atmosphere at the Edison was unique and had a great vibe. The food was incredible. Appetizer candied Bacon was unbelievable and it arrives on a small clothesline with clothespins. The burger was incredible. I tried my boyfriend's grilled cheese and tomato soup which I will get next time. At 930 there was a band and at 10pm a show. It was a lot of fun.

Seating is uncomfortable but the service is excellent even though the place was very busy. I think the food is over priced but not unexpected at Disney. The food quality is better than average but the items, like ketchup or fried chicken, should be described as being spicy hot in the menu.

I did enjoy the experience at The Edison. My waitress was really good. The noise level was high and interferes with the conversation over dinner as it was a business dinner. However it is located at Disney Springs and I expected as much with families and children. All in all so will recommend and look forward to going back for pleasure. After 9 pm it’s adults only with a Flapper show. I’m sure I’d love this place on my next visit although I liked it a lot on my first visit.

We love the theme of The Edison. 1920s music and decor. The food was very good we had lunch. The staff was very friendly. We r looking forward to trying the dinner menu while still in Disney. I don't feel personally it's for younger children.

I've waited 3 trips to Disney Springs to get a reservation. Thank you @opentable Restaurant was amazing, atmosphere, entertaining, etc. Features live shows 9/10 PM Th-Sun.
Food was good, however, had to remind server several things when it arrived of how it was ordered. Very limited menu, but something for everyone.

We didn't enjoy the lunch menu at all. Both the French dip and Turkey club were dry. However, the hand cut french fries were delicious. For the money, it's best to just pop in for a specialty cocktail and a generous plate of hummus and pita chips to enjoy the ambience. Otherwise, the place is way over priced.

It wasn’t a very good experience, but nobody’s fault in particular. After being seated and ordering our food, something broke down.
After waiting about an hour, management tried to pull a fast one and microwave our food I believe. Food arrived room temperature and solidified.
We only had drinks and an appetizer, that was good. The service was good as well. But overall not a pleasurable experience.

We made the reservation for 6 PM on a Saturday and it was half empty when we arrived. We were seated on the top floor by the glass so we were able to look down on the big band area and the dancefloor. After 10 they start playing music and most of the building is a dancefloor. Food was great, however was expensive. Cocktails were incredible, worth going in for a drink alone. Overall would totally reccommend for a date night!

Sheldon was our server and he was absolutely amazing!! When he told us he was new we were shocked because we thought he had been there for a while! He was very patient with us since we were on a date and taking our time and even helped us pick out drinks and food to order which all tasted fantastic!! Steve the bar manager even came by to check on us and had a great conversation about the place and the direction they are trying to go in, the drinks, etc. Oh and the dancers and aerialist were so cool to watch, I wasn’t expecting such a great show in the small space they had. Impressive! All and all we had a blast and can’t wait to go back!

We've eaten at The Edison before and loved it enough to want to come back for my birthday last night(7/17). We got in easy with a same day reservation. We were sat quickly and the waitstaff arrived soon after.
We order the Deviled Eggs (delicious) and each had a drink (A hand in Thyme & the Green Electron).
For the main course we split the Red, White, & BBQ burger and the BBQ Serloin Steak Tips, both were delectable.
Full from the main, we didn't order dessert, but a small birthday treat was brought as a surprise.
I highly recommended this restaurant to anyone.
