My wife and I sat down and ordered two drinks and our dinners. After 20 minutes, we did not receive our drinks. We waiting another 10 minutes. When our server came by to check on us, we asked for our drinks. We told him specifically that we wanted to have our drinks before our meal. 5 minutes later, my $22 hamburger came out. We still did not have our drinks. We told our server we were leaving.

Celebrated a birthday at The Edison, food was simple for the price but tasted very good. Service was excellent, we loved our waitress. Specialty cocktail menu was quite good as well. Would return on a future trip to Orlando.

I liked the atmosphere. It was a bit noisy and the food was nothing special, but it was a fun place. There was no live music playing while we were there, so I can't comment on that.

Worst ever! Our first time, we loved it. So we made reservations for date night again. Major fail. It took a while for our drinks to arrive, then an hour (literally) for our food to get to our table. However, our order was incomplete and cold.

Maybe we should’ve known when the table next to us had the same complaints with management.

We were so disappointed, and didn’t want to wait any longer. Management came and apologized, but we still left.

We were lucky enough to enjoy a kid free trip to Disney. This was a perfect late night date spot after an evening at Epcot! Protip: Ask for a table with a view of the show when you make your reservation.

We had a Birthday to celebrate. I didn’t know when I made the reservation that we wouldn’t be able to see the fantastic entertainment from our table. I will request that next time. The service was fantastic, we were able to catch a table In The bar later to enjoy the jazz band. If you go the bacon appetizer is a must have!

I had the meatloaf dinner but it was not tasty! Quite bland!!!! The meat needed some spices. Others had the chicken - not anything special, steak tips were quite good. Would not go back or recommend to others!

The restaurant theme is fantastic. The decor and asthetic is so different. However, the food was sub par and the service was absolutely horrible. The server was absent most of the time, gave us the check before asking if we wanted dessert she told us if we wanted dessert to let us know, after she dropped the check and didnt even give us menus. She was unprofessional the entire time. We chose this restaurant based on recommendation and having an Opentable reward. When we gave her the reward she was visibly and verbally confused and openly told us she had no idea what that was. (Meanwhile it’s attached to our reservation) Then we paid with cash, and when handed to her, it seemed as if it was a foreign object. She said “she had to find change because she doesnt have cash on her”. Uhhhh it’s a restaurant?! We expect you to go to a register and cash out a bill?! It was so bazaar and we will never return due to the employee and service.

Great bar area to have craft drinks and a nice appetizer. Bar personnel super friendly and willing to discuss the special drinks on the menu. Also, had dinner as a second try from dinning a couple months ago. Menu fairly limited and not really what we want. We will definitely return to the bar areas , but probably not the dinning.

The atmosphere here is fun but the food is average at best. I would argue it’s worse than the Disney Park Food. I would not recommend the Edison. We had a party of 5 and no one enjoyed their food. Out of 5 stars I said I’d give it 1.5.

Food was average at best. Two of us had meatloaf. It was dry and all the food was luke warm. One person had the prime rib ($34) and it was average. One guest had the salmon which was over powered by the avocado that topped it. The atmosphere is cool but not good for conversation as there is a lot of background noise.

As a party of 4 were seated in an upstairs area that was somewhat noisy and did not seem very special. The service was quite good and the server was very attentive. One of our party ordered the Edison burger. The fries came out cold and the second order of replacement fries were quite spicy. The prime rib serving was quite large, but seemed very tough to cut and was not very warm. The mashed potatoes were lukewarm. All in all, not a great experience.

The Edison is an awesome restaurant in Disney Springs! The atmosphere is super cool, very steampunk 20’s. I will say that the food, while delicious, is very generic to the tourist menu in Disney. If you’re looking for a unique menu, this isn’t the spot for you. But overall we loved it and had a great time.

I had a burger, and my wife had a French onion sandwich. Both were good but a little pricey for what we got. The ambiance and unique decor was our favorite part.

We got there at 4:30 and got the lunch menu. It would have been nice to have the option of seeing the dinner menu as well.

Food was good, nothing special about it. Alittle pricey. But you’re paying for the atmosphere. Wish they would of had some shows during the day like at lunch. All they had were silent short movies playing on the walls. I guess I was expecting more since it has been so highly advertised. Been there, done it. Would go somewhere else to eat when I’m Disney Springs.

My husband and I checked in at 5pm. Our reservation was 5:15pm. We were dining with my daughter and her husband and they hadn’t arrived so we told the hostess that we would be downstairs and when they arrived they would alert them and we could be seated. Once my daughter arrived she told the hostess and was told the table was not ready. She came downstairs and we all had a drink at the bar. After about 30 minutes my daughter went back upstairs and inquired about our table - they told her they didn’t have a table albeit the restaurant was almost empty. Then they said we will seat you and proceeded to sit her alone. Never came to tell us our table was ready. The waiter was fabulous. The food was meh! For such wonderful ambiance you would think they would have dinners like Shulas or Narcoosies - but no. It was subpar at best.

We were on vacation. The food was lazy and so was the presentation. TGIFridays quality. One server went above to clean a table and get us where we wanted to be even though it meant moving us from her station to someone else’s. Won’t be going back. Steam punk? - not really....

I went on a Wednesday with a 6:30 reservation. night. Service was pretty good, chairs are hard and wooden with a rail under your thighs, and not very comfortable. It didn't help that something was up in the kitchen and it took over an hour to get our food. It was just an edison burger...the food tasted really good, and the waiter was nice, but overall it was a bust and I just didn't feel it was as special as I was expecting.

Love the concept but it dosen't work. 1920s flappers, music and screens but it doesn't live up to its promise. Food way over priced, my burger is a TGIF, Applebees in style for 22. Hanging bacon ok but not 15 bucks, get the burger same bacon. My wife's salmon was raw in the center! It was replaced and free with two apologies. The house fries were horrible so that was free too. The wait staff was very professional.Drinks were good. Band good but didn't play much. Was there from 8:30-11pm and it was becoming more and more dead as time went by. May go back for drinks but not the food.
