The Edison is a lavish Industrial Gothic-style destination for classic American fare, hand crafted -cocktails, exciting nightlife, and world-class entertainment. Thoughtfully re-imagined from a historic power plant, The Edison operates as a landmark restaurant, with three bars and many cozy lounges nestled in this multi-level venue. 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.

You were here for a 40th birthday and it’s very lively. It’s inside of Disney springs so I would definitely make a reservation. You don’t have to super dressed up but it is steam punk

We were here for a drink during the afternoon earlier in the week. The ambiance was amazing. We were excited to come back for dinner in the evening that weekend. The let down was of epic proportions. The 20’s steam punk Edison live music was an alto saxophonist with an iPad playing Kenny G and any other bad 80’s tunes. The server came by our table 3 times ... in the hour we sat there. Once for a drink order. Once for our food order, but since he didn’t let us know until then that the item (as well as another on the menu) was unavailable he couldn’t take our order. He came back a third time for our order. One hour later he comes back to let us know our order was fourth in the queue. He began to walk away with even asking if we would like another drink At that point we asked for the check, paid and left.

We waited 90 minutes for our food to arrive. The server couldn't have been nicer and certainly not her fault but clearly they have problems in the kitchen. The menu is limited and they were out of 3 of the main entrees.

Great time at the edison. Went on Thursday night, had a 9:15pm reservation and band started promptly at 10am. Some patrons were using the dance floor, but other wise “the pearls”-house dancers came out and did 1 song at a time, 1 dance per set. The house band did jazz covers of current pop songs and the DJ played great gatsby-esque beats in between sets.

We found the restaurant to be interesting. The ambiance had an old clock and they showed various old silent movies. Next time we would come back in the evening. They have a stage that provides musical entertainment and a trapeze artist that performs in the middle of the dining room. The food was good and we received great attention from our waitress. We will definitely come back again but it will be for dinner. We loved using open table, especially in such a busy place as Disney Springs Florida.

We had a great time, but the service was disappointing and we had an issue with a reservation made way in advance. Would go back again and recommend to others, with the caveat the service might not be very good.
Pros: Fun show and entertainment, lively music, energetic vibe and amazing people watching. Yummy deviled eggs and salmon. Bad Miscalculation is our new favorite cocktail! So. Damn. Good.
Cons: Had to wait 15 mins for our table, even though we had a reservation. We were celebrating my BFFs birthday so I specifically requested a table near the action. Instead, we were seated upstairs above the action. After speaking to the manager we were moved to a cocktail table near the bar; manager let us sit in chairs even though they normally aren't allowed in that section. We really appreciated that! Unfortunately, there was no cocktail service, even though a waitress told us she'd send someone over. We ended up ordering food and drinks at the bar, but there were only two people working so it was a long wait every time we needed a drink. Also, the female bartender could not have been less friendly and seemed annoyed by us. She half-assed our Bad Miscalculation cocktails and they tasted terrible. The male bartender was soooo much better and made AMAZING cocktails; we asked him to re-make the ones she gave and he was happy to oblige.

Fantastic looking restaurant. The service& food did not live up to the ambiance. Two hostesses, were eating at the stand, and had no interest in engaging with us. We were sat in 15 minutes time. Our server dropped, two coasters on our table and waited for us to say something. We ordered our drink with out the server saying anything. Just walked away. Guacamole was very bland, the calamari was very very salty. We were never asked how the food was. Our table was wobly. The washroom swere not maintained.
The entertainment was fantastic, great voice on the lead singer. Great DJ.
All the concerns are easily fixed. Coaching the team on great service, and the place would be 5 stars.

When we made the reservation I added on the notes that we were celebrating our 20th year anniversary. We were sat a a table by the bathrooms and kitchen with no view of the actual restaurant and our waiter never mentioned our Anniversary or asked if we were celebrating anything despite of us being dressed up. I would of wanted to really feel special but was disappointed.

We were at Disney Springs Monday March 4th 2019, we decided to try Edison, it was just my husband and myself, we asked the hostess who was outside the restaurant if we were able to get a time to eat, she said there was no space. My husband said to try Open Table and sure enough we got a reservation for 15 minutes later. We told the hostess and checked in, she seemed aggravated which we couldn't understand why, we had no issues with her. It was not a great start to our experience and I think the Edison needs to hire people who want people who are excited to try the restaurant to come in and not try to get rid of them. In fact there were many empty tables in the restaurant, just couldn't understand what the motivation was to have us go somewhere else.

The restaurant is bigger than life! Seeing Edison’s life’s work everywhere is wonderful!! I never realized he had so many patents. The whole ambience of the restaurant is like stepping back in time. It’s a very large restaurant, but yet it feels very cozy and warm, even with all of the metal and cement everywhere. The food is very delicious. We had the pulled pork and turkey sandwich. Both were really yummy but each sandwich could definitely be shared by 2 people. Very generous servings. Everyone that works there is very friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend the restaurant.

This might have been the worst meal we have ever had while traveling. The service was good but bacon was basically raw. the lettuce was brown and wilted. the fish and chips were mushy. very expensive mess.

Out of ALL light beers and or lagers. Loud. Our meal obviously wasn’t put into the queue by the waiter timely as several tables seated after ours were served first. The waiter may have been new as he really didn’t have the knowledge of the menu one would expect. Not anyplace I’d ever want to eat at twice. Food was mediocre at best.
