    We loved everything about the dining experience . Just one disappointment was the Pavlova dessert. I would give it a 1 for presentation but the taste / texture/ consistency was nothing like the authentic pavlova that we have had in Australia and France .

    Food and service was good. No seating available inside, outside looks like you’re sitting in a garage. Because you are! Could make this so much nicer. It is really neglected and you feel like you are not part of the restaurant. Will not eat there again if inside seating is not available.

    If you love tasting menus, you have to try Edison's Water Cooler from 4-6 PM. The menu changes weekly and the food is complex, choreographed, and sublime. Service is excellent, and the cocktails are great. I recommend the Buzz Cut or Devil's Den. Special thanks to Nick for his excellent service and Ricardo for the excellent cocktails. The Water Cooler is from 4-6 PM and the bites are priced so you can enjoy them all.

    Everything we ordered was amazing from the smoked bone marrow to the burrata. The duck entree with butternut squash risotto was delicious and the seared scallops with pork belly jam was amazing! There were unique surprise through teach dish including the chipotle sorbet with the burrata. Our whole group shared and devoured the entire meal. It was a wonderful evening filled with great food and amazing friends. Cocktails were on point and would definitely recommend! There were a few small service issues but the staff addressed them and ensured we had a wonderful evening.

    Exceptional dining experience with out of town guests. Appreciated a person left a voicemail reminder of the reservation. Applauded that there were food and beverage items on a Happy Hour menu on a Friday night. Appreciated the great service, consistent check-ins and helpful knowledge of our wait person. And the food was truly delightful, from starters and entrees to desserts. Lovely atmosphere and only a moderate noice level even after the dining areas filled up. The entire experience was well done and we were all well fed!

    Still one of the most consistent and innovative, fine dining experiences in Florida. I’ve probably eaten at Edison two dozen times and I’ve never had a bad experience. The kitchen strikes a fine balance between striving for innovation, and keeping some old favorites as features. The potato crusted oysters are a great example; it’s a dish that is familiar and innovative all at once. Highly recommend the scallop and pork belly. Or the molten crab cake app.

    The unique dishes and flavors make this place a special place to go. We sat at the bar for dinner and had a lovely time with the bartender who made us feel like we were being taken care of the same as at a table with each plate described as it was served. Definitely worth many special return trips

    The food was, as always, amazing. The service was slow and somewhat confused particularly on the bar service. The table we had was extraordinarily loud. Ask for the room without the bar or if the room with the bar closer to the windows.

    Inventive and very tasty dishes well prepared and presented. The service was good. Comfortable casual ambiance. Adequate wine list. On the downside, the entrance is off an alley. Inadequate on site parking - may deter us from returning. The food is the star here!

    Beautiful night out on the patio pre-theater on the way to see Hamilton. We had an amazing selection from such an eclectic menu.: potato-crusted oysters, molten crabcake, octopus Bolognese, and the seared grouper. Everything was above and beyond, and the accompaniments were also so individually special. The service was exceptional as always.

    Matthew our waiter delivered excellent service . He provided great descriptions of the menu items. He and the chef were very accommodating of our dietary restrictions ( gf/ celiac) and our party of 7 enjoyed our entire meal. Great atmosphere , great service , excellent dining experience . Only criticism is cost -as it is a pricey night out especially if you are adding drinks and desserts to your tab . It’s a worthy splurge IMO.

    The food was absolutely delicious (and gorgeous)! Cocktails were perfect (I can’t remember what it was called, but it had rose water and vodka). The service was impeccable! Matthew is the most wonderful server I have ever had. Having been in the restaurant industry in managerial roles for 15 years, I was absolutely blown away by his knowledge of the menu, preparation, and suggestions. His personality makes for the most enjoyable experience. Such a gem! We will return!

    Service was 5 star! We had a reservation for 12 but had a extra one join and they accommodated. Some of our food was cold and they fixed the issue immediately and gave us some free desserts. Only reason I didn’t give 5stars is because my food was one of the cold ones but I was charged for the dessert and others received my comp.

    Started out with the smoked Old Fashion, didn’t have ice molds but overall the cocktail was very good (8/10) We had two appetizers the Tuna Tartare & Potato Crusted Oysters. Tuna (7/10) Oysters (10/10) Exceptional** For the main course was the Octopus Bolognese & Tonkatsu Glazed Bone In Pork Chop. Octopus (7.5/10) The pasta was bland, had to combine with the octopus to get the full affect. PorkChop (9/10) my only complaint is I wanted more! Overall our experience was positive (8.5/10), we will be back!
