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.

Ran out of 3/4 of the menu by the time our reservation came up.
Either book early - try to avoid late reservations.
Only had salad, hamburger and 2 entrees to choose from.

What we did get was very good and the service was very good.

We were there at 6pm on a Sunday. Great flexibility in pushing our reservation time back. Service was slow. Live music was GREAT but too loud to talk much. Expensive for what we ate. Portions were small. Atmosphere was very good.

Excited to see what Edison had to offer. Sadly, my expectations were thrown out a window. The host was nice but the moment my family sat everything when downhill. The waitress was not rude but seemed like she dislikes her job. If you are going to work in a place like Disney you need to at least enjoy your job. Moving on to the food, it was not adequate for the pricing it has. Four strips of bacon for $18? Doesn’t seem correct. We understand expenses are to be thought about but if the food is not pleasant the service can maybe distract you from the fact that the food was not good. But unfortunately the food and service were both unwelcome. Overall, not an experience for such a great location. Hope it can strive in the future so that the investment done in this restaurant can prosper.

We went to the restaurant, to celebrate mother/daughter birthdays. The food and drinks were ok . The place is nice , but we couldn’t really enjoy , because our table for 10 persons, was behind a huge wall , away from the main show room. I think that the layout of the restaurant could be different, so everyone could watch the show. Now That I know that , I just go back with three more people , so can have a chance for a better seating .

In the past, the food, ambiance and live entertainment (jazz) at The Edison has been superb. However, this last experience left a lot to be desired. Our biggest complaint was with the entertainment as they attempted to put a 1920’s era spin on contemporary songs such as “Stacey’s Mom” by Fountains of Wayne. It just does not work. The singers voice was so high pitched that the selection of music and tone quickly became annoying. We could not wait to get out of there. The food was subpar. My wife had short ribs and I had the prime rib. I would say that the food quality was similar to Outback, but twice the price. Don’t get me wrong, I am happy to pay more to eat on Disney property; however, the ambiance just wasn’t there this time to justify the price.

Our server came to the table a total of 3 times. We never got silverware or napkins, and by the time she came back to the table at the end of our meal, we finally got to ask for napkins as our hands were covered in oil and she looked around us as if we were hiding them and then brought them over for us. It was some of the worst service I’ve ever experienced. I was also trying to order a specialty drink and as I’m trying to open their online menu it wont load, so I go to the Disney app where I already had their menu open. She tells me they got rid of that drink last week and doesn’t let me know any of the other options they have, knowing their menu won’t load. I then just order a coke because she was standing over me and rushing me, and then once she leaves I’m able to get the menu to load, and come to see they have that same drink I was asking for just with a different name. I then ask to order the drink when she brings our drinks over and she acts annoyed. It was my birthday and this was some of the worst service I’ve ever received.

The place is ok but not great. Waitress was very nice and staff was very friendly but the food was just ok for the price. Burger was undercooked compared to what was asked for and the “Impossible” burger was a bland flavorless patty - and we have had them many times at other restaurants. Cocktails were not that good. It was good to try once but probably will not be back anytime soon.

The food was amazing! We had a wonderful time celebrating. Our server was a bit short with us and didn't seem thrilled to be there. And being seated RIGHT next to the band made it very difficult to have conversations because it was so loud. But the food was amazing! We had a wonderful time getting to celebrate our 1st anniversary.

The staff are wonderful! Our only issue was the food was not that great. The ribs were super tough to the point you couldn't cut through them and the prime rib was too fatty and tough, couldn't cut it with a knife. The staff took care of us and didn't charge us for the meals we didn't eat however the other meals ordered were fantastic! Highly recommend, just stay away from the ribs and prime rib.

Our server was great! He Made good food and drink recommendations and when there was an issue with my drink, he took care of it right away. There is live music some nights, so it can get noisy at times. I enjoyed it but it was a little loud of my parents. Food is also a little expensive for what you get. Ambiance is great, unique and fun!

Great entertainment. There was a band playing, but no live acrobatic/dance performances. Food was amazing and service was amazing. Very difficult to hear table conversations due to the band, albeit a good time.

It was a great place to relax out of the hot sun - the restaurant was more of a drinks oriented menu with a smaller food selection than my wife and I expected. There was a live jazz band playing and the atmosphere and décor was excellent. An enjoyable experience all round!

Unique food options, live music, and superior staff make The Edison a favorite stop when at Disney Springs. The drink menu is always changing with the seasons, and you'll always be treated to a wonderful show in the evenings if you're looking for a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy music.
