    Atmosphere great. Food awful. Overpriced. Do not order a prime rib be ause it will be 75% fat. The salmon was amazing. No good bourbons. No good wine. Everything is over priced "think Disney" buy not good. They offer you mediocre for high end price. Not worth it unless you're going for the ambiance.

    the quality of the spare ribs was poo; not the cooking. Waitress forgot to bring us menus when we didn't use phone to scan the display. no bowl for the ribs or hand wipes provided. We had to ask. Weren't asked if I wanted more coke or water.

    First time visit for birthday after Cirque show. Waited 55 minutes after reservation time of 7:30, was told that the table they had for our party of three were just ordering dessert and had to wait. There were other four tops empty but still had to wait. Service was slow but waitress was very nice and checked on us frequently. Limited menu and prices were high. I had the prime rib which was supposed to be a 14 oz cut but it was presented as a hunk of end meat certainly seemed more then the stated weight. I’ve never seen a prime rib served that way at any other restaurant. It was ok but not worth the $43. Later that night our dog had a great treat. The chicken sandwich was good, very moist and enjoyed but over $25 was a little pricey. The mahi also was good. We had one round of drinks to begin and ended with the bombé for dessert two hours later due to what I suspect was a shortage of help. We totally understand staffing issues so we didn’t complain and our server did visit often saying it would be a few more minutes. I would highly recommend The Edison for the entertainment which was great (Sweet Society?) but you may think twice about a special occasion. Especially when within a one minute walk you have great places like Jaleo, George’s Wine Bar, and the Boathouse.

    The food was disappointing and drinks were mediocre. The ambiance and live performances are what make this restaurant. But I wouldn’t come back here until food quality is better, Especially for the price you pay here. It’s really unfortunate because this place has so much potential. Fix the limited menu to better tasting food and people would want to come back for more.

    Cocktails were craft and delicious. The vibe is fun here, the live 20's style flapper band sing retro versions of modern pop songs was fun. The food was poor. Had the short rib flat bread which had very little short rib on it and the crust really bug and soft. A mediocre Caesar salad with shrimp and the grilled cheese with tomato soup. The tomato soup was the best dish on the table. I'd come here again for a cocktail before having dinner somewhere else.

    Appetizers, entrees, and the bill came before our FISRT and only round of drinks. No refill on water. Bacon was decent but ribs were terrible- overcooked and rubbery. Server took nearly 20 min to even greet our table. Lots of “managers” in suits standing around, but not doing anything productive. Will not be going back.

    Service was good and quality of food above average. However the restaurant was so cold that it detracted from our dining experience. I mentioned this to the server and her response was that we were seated in one of the coldest sections of the restaurant and that I probably should have brought a wrap with me. Shame on me for not asking to be moved. Since we had already ordered a bottle of wine I felt it would not be fair to move to a different area and change servers.

    We've been to the Edison 3 times now and can safely say the food is awful, it's not just an off night. However, the service, drinks, and entertainment are great! It's worth a visit, but do yourself and favor and eat somewhere else. If you must eat there, stick to the apps. The entrees just aren't worth it.

    Great experience overall. However, asked for a burger to be well done. Had to send it back because it was really pink in the middle. Waited for 15-20minutes for my food to be ready while the rest of the party of 8 finished their food. The only thing they did was take off the burger.

    Was expecting a completely different show on a Saturday night. The singers that they had available would sing three songs take a half hour break, sing three songs take a half hour break. It was the worst performance ever due to all of the breaks they took. I would recommend this place for lunch but not for a night out.

    My husband and I stopped in for a between meals bite around 4:30 in the afternoon. They were just transitioning to dinner so the restaurant was not busy at all. Our server was very attentive and gave us a lot of information about the dishes and drinks. We shared two appetizers, the candied bacon and the popcorn shrimp, and I had the grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup. Everything was well presented and quite tasty. The cocktails and mocktails sounded like fun, but we just had a Coke and a glass of iced tea and resumed our chase of the abundant Pokemon Disney Springs has to offer. The decor is beautiful and leans toward Steampunk without being too fussy, the music was predominately Postmodern Jukebox and the dress code was casual. We will drop in again.
