Great atmosphere, well decorated, with a nice view of the lake. The service was excellent and the meals were good. I was disappointed in the meat and cheese appetizer as it was a little pricey for what you received. Overall a good experience and we will be back.

Everytime I go to Tally, I come to the Edison. The food is great and consistent. We also had outstanding, attentive service on this last visit. The buffalo chicken dip is outstanding. I’ll be back again soon.

This was our first time in the upper room before a concert. The tables were okay, not as nice as the ones downstairs, but would be great for an event. The staff was great! Food was fantastic as usual. Best part was we had a fantastic server. She was awesome!

Our waitress took a very long time to serve us, she disappeared several times, she was forgetful with things, and we waited 45 minutes to get our food. Overall, the service was not up to par. However, she was relatively nice when she was present.

Arancini was amazing. The rest of the food was fantastic as well. My only suggestion would be for them to offer a few gluten-friendly suggestions for desserts.

For the past 4 years, the Edison has been a favorite when visiting Tallahassee. It is always a treat to visit my kids at FSU and treat them (and their friends) to dinner. On Tuesday, my husband and I took my daughter, her brother, her roommate and her boyfriend to celebrate her birthday. When I made reservations online only the late 8:30 time was available so I settled for that thinking it would be fine. At 7:00 or so, we received a call that the kitchen would be closing at 8:45 so we would need to hurry. We asked if we could come in early, they said fine. The restaurant was so empty, I don't know how reservations would not have been available earlier as that was what I preferred. We arrived a little past 8:00 with presents, and 3 balloons. Nothing embarrassingly big but obviously noticeable. We were not greeted for 5 minutes after our arrival. Our server, Matt, was nice but not a very good server, so suggestions of drinks, apps or entrees. 4 of us are legal drinking age but no mention of fancy cocktails, recommended wine, etc. Food portions seemed smaller than our previous 8-10 visits. We were basically brisked out---shades were closed and lights turned up right at 9:00. The worst was the smell of bleach and cleaning while we were still eating. And absolutely no one even mentioned a birthday with a well wish or dessert suggestion. We clearly over paid for a less than average experience.

Winos watch the wine prices! First thing I look at is Open Table when out of town then the restaurants wine list. This place has a wonderful wine list on open table with very fair prices but when arrived the restaurant the prices were double if not triple the price of the menu online.
Our server got us the manager and she gave us the Open table price online for the wine. Service was very good and food was very good. If they don’t lower the wine prices I won’t be back. Wine is part of my dinner and won’t pay crazy prices for it.
The wine prices on Open Table are the prices the restaurant should be charging btw. My opinion!

Terribly inadequate parking. Arrived at 6pm on a Sunday nite for a 6:15 reservation. No parking in the lots.
I finally parked illegally on the curbside and was inside by 6:20. Seated upstairs in a huge room with wood floors, movable tables & chairs and no ambiance. Nothing special about the food. Won’t be going back.

When we are arrived at our reserved time we were seated promptly. Unfortunately we waited for 20 min for service . We had to go to the front desk and ask for someone to visit our table . The server we had was very friendly and gave good recommendations. I ordered the blackened grouper it was under cooked and pink. Our steak which was ordered rare came back medium and the pasta ordered came with not enough sauce. The ambiance is rather nice and hoping it was just a fluke .

Hard for me to say that I wouldn't recommend this restaurant since it is such a beautiful building and location. The service was very good, no complaints there but the food was really just average. Certainly not worth the price point. May be a nice place for drinks on the patio but I can't recommend for dinner.

It is a lovely location. The bar service was not good -- the old fashioned was served without a garnish and the other drink order was completely wrong. Most of our food was pretty good, although we waited for about 5 minutes for plates for the arancini, which was lukewarm by the time we got them. It was also served without a serving spoon, so we each had to stick our forks in the dish. My Caesar salad was all outside dark leaves and had nothing to recommend it. Everyone else enjoyed their main courses, however (salmon, short ribs, steak). Dessert (chocolate cake) was amazing. It was loud, but not overwhelming.

The view is so lovely on a nice day, just really makes you enjoy Tallahassee and the lovely park. I wish this place was not so hit and miss. Recently I had a reservation for 6 for a birthday celebration only to arrive and discover they were closed and had not updated the Open Table data. Most recently ordered a bottle of white wine for brunch and was brought a different bottle for a significant upcharge and it was warm ( white wine) and the server stated they had not "had time" to chill any wines ( for a holiday weekend ). He broke the cork and seemed unfamiliar with even how to open wine. It was warm and not drinkable. The "medium rare steak and poached eggs" arrived well done leathery and hard-boiled eggs. Sent back. not edible. Overall a serious of disappointments. I would say , if you go, go with 0 expectations and just enjoy the park. Do not go for the food or service. The manager came to our table at the very end ( too late) and took off my bad food but the wine should have never been sent out by the bartender such as it was ( for $75). Never see the same manager or server twice here.
