    Food was overpriced and service was slow. We both ordered the Snapper for $39.00 each. What we received were 2 small pieces of fish served over rice. Not worth $39.00 It wasn’t that busy in the restaurant and we waited long for our food. No bread served with the meal. I sat and waited with an empty beer glass for about 15 minutes. When I finish my beer and the glass is empty, I would expect to be asked within a reasonable amount of time if I want another. The Boathouse blows this place away hands down . Take your business elsewhere. I dine at Disney Springs once per week. This is the first and last time I will go to the Edison.

    Food was not worth the money. Had short rib flat bread and maybe had 3 very small pieces of short rib. Also the drinks were very weak and all ice. Not happy.

    me and my friend came and we saw it was supposed to be busy so we booked ahead. the only reservations were for 4:15 and 9:00. we took the four because we didn’t want to eat so late. got in and it was empty - kind of annoying. server paid us little attention even seeing empty water glasses for 30 minutes. asked other staff for water and we were ignored. food was subpar. probably won’t go back again.

    I took a long time to get our food and when we got the food it was luke warm. I order a second beer way before our food came and the beer finally arrived halfway through dinner. The server was very nice but maybe they are understaffed, the menu is also very limited.

    We had an 8:15 reservation, seated at 8:20, no server until 8:45 when we asked hostess for one to come take drink order. Our waiter arrived at 8:50 not knowing we even had to get someone. They apologized, offered us an appetizer on then, very nice gesture. We ordered the parade an fries and asked for ketchup. Ketchup arrived after we had finished the appetizer. My sons chicken fingers were cold, my short ribs were very good but my husband’s short ribs flatbread literally was missing short ribs. Manager came over and took it off the bill. The manager definitely did the right thing, we were so excited to try the place but won’t be back. Not worth it for the price point.

    I have read great reviews about this place and here goes another one. The fried chicken sandwich was amazing! The cocktail choices are pleasing. I will return soon to experience the live music as we went during midday for lunch. I would have ordered dessert but the waiter brought me my check without asking for dessert so next time I’m there I hope to try dessert if I am asked. Overall great vibe and love the decor! Must try!

    Honestly, if the service was even mediocre my rating would be high. It’s a neat environment and nice jazz being performed. Our fries were cold- other than that food was good. The hostess (the first face you see) looked like she was on a bender … our server forgot to punch on one of our drinks and then lied about it and then brought me the wrong drink saying “oh yes many ppl are saying that, it’s because we don’t have the items for your drink “ (then why let me order it ?) Our appetizer was missing so we cancelled as it wasn’t there after our mains were finished and then they brought it after we got the bill… Really do bad as I was hyped about this place for a year to visit.

    The restaurant was a unique experience and ambiance. The service was super slow and the food was ok. It was overpriced for what we got but that is to be expected at a Disney restaurant I guess. The bacon appetizer was ok. The grilled cheese was delicious but the tomato soup was actually more like a bowl of marinara sauce.

    I’ve been to the Edison many times. The last few times were wonderful. The singers were so entertaining we didn’t want to leave. The food was amazing. Was perfect. I have no idea what happened. We had a 7pm reservation and sat near the stage. The singers came up about 7:20, sing 3 songs… that’s it. 3. Then they took a 25 minute break. Back for 2 songs this time. This was disappointing because we were looking forward to an evening of entertainment and libations. In the almost 2 hours there, we heard maybe 7 songs. Now the food… I have no idea what happened there. I had the grilled cheese and tomato soup. It was awful. A huge but soggy sandwich with a bowl of what’s basically Ragu sauce from the jar with a 1/2 cup oregano floating around. My husband had the bacon Swiss burger. He cut it in half to take a bite and it crumbled in his hands. The bread was so dry and the meat was a hockey puck. We did have 3 cocktails. I had 1 and my husband had 2 high rollers. Those were good. But overall a terribly disappointing visit this time. Service was fine… but this visit makes me have second thoughts about another.

    The mashed potato’s seemed like a whole bottle of salt was dumped into it. The salad dressing was the best I ever had. The ribs were ok - dry rub with spicy bbq on the side. The Short ribs were good but hardly any mashed potato or vegetable. Not a must stop Excellent service !

    Husband was sent wrong meal. I finished my meal before spouse even got his and his steak was cold with hot steak fries on top. manager, Katie, was supposed to visit table but never came by. I had the short rib dinner. Mashed potatoes were way over salted and only 3 tiny pieces of carrots. Short rib didn’t taste like it was cooked in a sauce but added separately which made it fatty, tough and flavorless. Overall very disappointed. Husband’s dinner should have been comped after 2 screw ups, but nothing was removed from the bill. EDISON- DO BETTER

    Food is pretty good, ambience is great. Wish they offered the entertainment earlier as we missed it. Pretty expensive, $17 for a kids meal is one of the most expensive I've seen. Soup and grilled cheese, although good, was $22.

    Overall, it wasn’t all we were hoping it would be. The spinach cheese dip was excellent, but the pretzel was nothing special. Our server, Don, did a good job, but when we ordered a 2nd glass of the Unshackled Sauvignon Blanc (California wine) we were brought a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc which tasted VERY different. I’m a bit of a wine geek so as soon as he told us the bartender substituted the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc for the California one we ordered, because they ran out of the California one, I knew we probably wouldn’t like it, as the regions produce very different tasting Sauvignon Blancs. We tried the wine, but just couldn’t drink it. So, we canceled the order of the chicken flatbread and just asked for the check. Don was very understanding about it. The other thing that made our experience less than enjoyable was how cold it was in the restaurant. FYI - the entertainment doesn’t begin till 7pm, and I’m assuming that’s part of what makes this place so popular, so without the entertainment, it’s just kind of like a regular dining experience.

    I enjoyed our time at the Edison until the live music started. To all of us at the table the loudness of them turning up the sound system was unbearable. It was almost like we were in a night club, making it almost impossible to talk to even the person next to you. Another thing while most of us enjoyed our food and it was delicious. One of our party decided to order from the kids menu due to not wanting to eat a huge meal. Upon receiving the bill we discovered that they were charged for what was called an adult version of the meal from the kids menu. It would have been understandable if our server had told us that they would do this but they did not make any indication about this.

    We were disappointed that online it states after 10pm the location becomes over 21. The online description of this location does not meet the actual experience. The performers would play 3 songs and then take a break. Unfortunately I became our server at one point and had to go to the bar and get a refill on our drinks. I ordered a drink and he never brought it to our table. Our server did not come to our table hardly at all. We ordered the Cesar salad and ribs to share and they were bland.
