    Wonderfully themed restaurant - very unique. Food was very good too. It is a loud place when the entertainment is on stage, so just know that conversation will be challenging.

    We were a family of eleven with six adults and 5 children under 10. We were seated next to the bar which was very loud.The food was slow coming out and the service was poor. We were very disappointed as we were there in May and everything was excellent.

    Experience was overall 7/10. Server was attentive until she wasn’t- came by to check on us plenty and then took 20 minutes to bring us our check and a to go box because she was too busy chatting with another table. One of us has to go and find someone else to bring it to us and when she did come over, she didn’t give a sincere enough apology. Food was adequate. Drinks were adequate as well. I got a grilled cheese sandwich which was good but the tomato soup was not. My sister got ribs and those were enjoyable. Would maybe come again for the music and to try something different but was overall not blown away by the food.

    Great food. Pricey but worth it. We had salmon which was a good portion, the hamburger for 25$ but large, and the short rib was a much try . Add to it excellent old fashions with a large rock!

    The servers were so nice and engaging. I was very impressed with the quality of food. Everything was piping hot and very flavorful. They take something simple, like a grilled cheese, and make it a masterpiece. Edison never fails to amaze me.

    Food came out really fast but my grilled cheese was cold in the middle. The flavor was good but they must have just been reheating food. The center should cool last. The berry smash drink was great and worth every penny. Our server was polite and friendly.

    Celebrated our sons 22nd birthday and we had a wonderful time! Asked for a table by the show and initially thought oh no we won’t even be able to hear eachother talk, but doing the sets in these small increments allowed us to not only enjoy a fantastic show, but eachother as well! This was thought out nicely. Also that Edison burger was mouth watering! So delicious! Thanks for making this a night to remember!

    Waitress and Food were good. Lost appetite eating spinach dip. Also, music wasn’t played very long. Only three songs would be played and then 15-20 min breaks would occur between them.

    My fiancé and I were celebrating our engagement here! We had a table up close to the singers that evening. They were so fun and energetic. We enjoy live music and they made the scenery have a great vibe throughout the evening. The atmosphere here was so eclectic, and we loved the theme to this restaurant. The meals and drinks were outstanding! The restaurant is leaning towards above moderately priced however it is well worth it. We love visiting Disney and Disney Springs every year. We will definitely be dining at The Edison again! Thanks for making our celebration memorable!
