Disaster from start to finish. We were seated at a table with low chairs so our chins were at table level. We were able to wait a little longer for a regular table. We then waited 30 minutes to get a glass of wine and bottle of beer, which was at room temperature. The special Valentine appetizer was already sold out so we skipped to dinner orders. First choice, prime rib, was sold out as well. Made a second choice only to have waitress return to say that was sold out! Ended up ordering a pulled pork sandwich. We then waited 45 minutes without food before asking to see the manger. Finally got food, which was cold, as manger arrived at our table. We rarely complain, even if something is not quite right, but this was a horrible experience!

This place - in classic Disney style- is very cool. It feels like you’ve stepped into a 20’s era speakeasy in the basement of an old electric substation. The entertainment is top notch! That’s where the fantasy ends. The food is over cooked, bland and not what is advertised. Take the BBQ sirloin tips, for example. The description leads you to believe this is a nice cut of meat served with grilled onions and peppers over rice. That’s in fact what it says but with more flourish. It’s a teriyaki stir fry, no different than what you can purchase in the frozen section at any grocery store. Additionally, the rice was al dente at best. The staff is overworked and do not stop by often; we went to the bar several times in an attempt to retrieve our own drinks (25 minutes for drinks). Then we went back to the bar, to try and figure out what they made us. We ordered 2, old fashioned with cherries with 12 year old Fleur de Cana as the liquor (dark rum). These came out clear and cloudy with no cherries and tasted nothing like an old fashioned. We went to the bar to ask what it was and got a harried, clueless blonde woman who did not know what we were talking about. She was the only one in the upstairs bar at the time. We identified the mystery component to be vermouth. They were mostly vermouth. Yuck. My meal was comp’d (thank you for that), but the drinks were ruined and expensive on top of it. I say go, but have realistic expectations. Low value for money and it may be a better stop for a single drink or dessert.

I loved the atmosphere, wished the dance floor was a bit bigger and that you had more time to dance. Band should start at 9 instead.

This was our first visit to the Edison. We enjoyed the ambience and the food but when the bill came we did not tell the waitress we had a discount with the DVC membership. she then told us that it was impossible for her to cancel the bill and apply the membership discount. The bill was $100 or more so it was a bit disappointing. But we would still go back but we would be more diligent with the discount. Thank you

The restaurant was true to previous reviews I had read, it was not busy that night and yet we waited almost 40 minutes for our food. The waiter said to us that he would speak to the manager to see what he could do butvat the end of our meal the check remained the same. However we did really enjoy the food , drink, and atmosphere very much.

Overall the food was good- and there is a gorgeous view on the outside patio- but the staff was not particularly informative, attentive or helpful. I had made a reservation for an outdoor patio table, which they said was great- then they sat us outside, but failed to mention that they had closed the patio because of a possible gas leak from one of the heaters. If they had said something we would have chosen a different table/area- but no one said a word- very odd- as a result our waiter was less attentive and didn't check-in and was slow to get the check/take it- so I ended up bringing it up to them myself.

My girlfriend and I went for our first year anniversary and without a doubt it was one of my favorite dinning experiences of all time. We had made reservations at 7:30 but ended up getting there an hour ahead of time and we still got sat right away no wait at all. The atmosphere was amazing with the 1920's steampunk design. The waiting was fantastic really energetic and happy to be there. The food was absolutely amazing it came out fresh and delicious. I can not say enough about this place if you have a special occasion or just want to have a nice night out I would definitely recommend The Edison!

Good atmosphere, well decorated. Fun black and white movies on the wall. Food, not so good. Three of four of our items came incorrect or not fully cooked. They took the three off the bill since we could not eat them, and rightly so. For a restaurant this expensive, they should be better at this. It is not a new place.

I expected a bit more from a restaurant at Disney Springs. The interior was very cool but very cool doesn’t always make for a great dining experience. The food was ordinary. The chicken caesar salad was mediocre at best and the loaded baked potato was anything but loaded. I’d pass for something better on my next trip.

Was seated 15 minutes after our reservation. Then the place was so cold I had to keep my winter coat on the entire visit and we were no where near a door. The food took over an hour to get to our table and it wasn’t that good. My husband had the electric chicken and it came in a plastic basket. For the price a plate would have been nice. He had a hard time cutting it because of the basket and said McDonald’s chicken nuggets tasted better. I had the prime rib and it was a bit over cooked and I have had way better at outback. The waiter was great. He kept apologizing and offered a round of free drinks but it wasn’t his fault and we don’t drink. I wanted dessert but was told I couldn’t get it to go and I had been shivering and freezing for almost two hours so we decided to skip dessert and leave. This meal was for my 40th birthday and we were very very disappointed. Will never go back. We had to stop at the restaurant next door who had heat lamps on their patio to warm up.

The atmosphere is unique, it looks like some sort of factory inside and the staff are all dressed like it’s the 1920’s.

The food that we had did not live up to the decor or the prices. I’ll only comment on my meal, the Edison Cheeseburger. It was cooked well done despite my ordering it medium which left it pretty dry. Otherwise it might have been an OK but not great burger but not worth the price. I guess they have to pay for that decor and high rent somehow.

I only had a beer but I could see the bartenders making drinks from my table. The drinks appeared to be well made assuming the juices in the squeeze bottles was fresh.

Despite the negative comments, I would eat there again. Maybe I’ll order the burger rare next time.

This is a fun restaurant. 20’s themed with tables on 2 floors that overlook the performance space. Deviled eggs appetizer and gooey grilled cheese and tomato soup are terrific signatures dishes. Peach cobbler was average. The show is a lot of fun and there is opportunity to break out your dancing shoes a little too if you choose.
