Absolutely love The Edison! We have dined there twice now since moving to Tallahassee last month and we will be going back many more times in the future! Would recommend to everyone living in or even just visiting Tallahassee!

Attentive service was quite good. Food came faster than expected. Flavors were superb. However, one side - corn on the cob - was cold. Not just not hot, actually cold. I mentioned it and a fresh ear of corn appeared momentarily. Flavor of the pork chops was superb!

Terrible service from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. We had reservations for our 7th Wedding Anniversary Brunch- The hostess did not greet us- I had to get her attention and ask to be seated. Then we sat at our table outside for over 20 minutes without being acknowledged. We had to waive down a server to ask who would be taking care of our table. The staff seemed annoyed by our presence. We did not feel welcome during our visit. The restaurant was NOT busy or on a wait- there were open tables- both myself and my husband have worked in the service industry for over 10 years and are very upset by the experience at The Edison. The food was decent- not great for the price.

First time at the Edisonand was pleasantly surprised. Enjoyed happy hour on the porch. The cheese boards we got were very nice and a great price with the $4 off. If they had been $16 I definitely wouldn’t have gotten two. I will say I liked it so much I brought two other first timers with me on Sunday. It was too cold to sit on the porch so we sat inside which was fine. I ordered the southern cheeseboard and meat and cheese board just like the night before. The meat and cheese board didn’t have as much meat and cheese as the night before. It was also on a smaller serving tray than the night before and smaller than the southern cheese board tray. So that was a little disappointing.. overall, the experience was still good. And we will comeback. Hopefully it will continue to be a good experience.

The food is always delicious and is what keeps us coming back. Unfortunately, they have stuck us downstairs in the basement the last 2 times and the service is not good. It's hard to get your server's attention because they are running up and down.

The location is great and the food is good, but the service is very poor -- not the servers themselves, but the wait time is ridiculous, especially for a place that is conveniently located to so many State offices where employees have an hour, at best, for lunch. It appears the place is sorely understaffed as far as servers are concerned, and the kitchen is either equally understaffed or the cooks are really, really slow. No matter how quiet or busy it is, it is impossible to get in and out of there in less than an hour.

Great Happy Hour prices. We loved the Southern Board. The food was awesome. We were a large party and did not have a good table. Plus one persons meal never showed up to we were ready to leave. That makes everyone else very uncomfortable at the table.

We felt like the food should be much higher quality. We would even be willing to pay more. It's such a great location, and a romantic atmosphere, but we won't recommend to friends because of the quality of the food. :(

Food was good. Thought the brunch steak would be bigger. Few lights were out & the tables were wobbly. Drinking glasses were tiny. Place still has a nice look though. Outdoor view is good. Staff is very cordial & made good menu suggestions. Waiter didn't fully listen to what I asked for, but was very willing to substitute items & adjust to fix things.

Very disappointing! We went on a Saturday afternoon at 3 PM for lunch. We had chosen our menu from your website = the seafood, pork and veggie skewers. When seated the waiter presented the dinner menu - more expensive and no pork or veggie skewers. We asked for the lunch menu and were told that they had discontinued lunch on Saturday. Why don't you keep your website up to date? I ordered the fish of the day with a side of sauteed green beans. The beans were nearly raw - could hardly cut them with a knife. All I was served was these uncooked beans with a piece of mediochre white fish a a tiny bit of sauce - no rice or potatoes as my son was served with his seafood skewers. The service was terribly slow. I didn't complain at the time because we had a delightful view on the patio and it was a beautiful day and I was enjoying being with my son and granddaughter. The hostess who seated us was lovely and got a soft chair for this skinny grandma. The waffle sweet potato fries were great and we shared them as extra were brought due to the fact that they didn't have enough to fill the order in the first place. The waiter was not attentive - didn't see much of him until he presented me with the bill. I'd like to give it another try on a weekday for lunch - I know you can do better!

Made reservations for outdoor seating. When we checked in were advised “oh there’s only one table for 6, the wait will be an additional 45-60 minutes”. We decided to stay and have a drink at the bar, attempted to order two different red wines, only to be brought a half full glass and the bartender saying “ this is all we have left, you can pay for this amount and then switch to a different red”. We opted to order a different red and got the response” we no longer carry that wine.”

60 minutes later we were seated outside. Overall a very disappointing visit.

While the service can be slow, the views of Cascades park on a nice evening can't be beat. There is a limited wine selection but has enough variety to be enjoyed, and has a nice cocktail menu. The food menu has steadily improved in the last year.

Worst part of the night was the smoking on the outside dining patio. They should not allow that. They have a lower patio for smokers but do not enforce smoking there. I had to physically walk over to a table and ask them to please be courteous as we just received our food as they decided to smoke. Come on!!! People are so rude!!

We had a very enjoyable Sunday brunch. The food was delicious. I recommend the steak and eggs. The atmosphere is relaxing as the music was low enough to have a quiet conversation at our table. The table was roomy and comfortable. I would most definitely done here again.
