    Great for foodies into uniquely prepared items from appetizers thru dessert. Tasty specialty cocktails! I recommend the edison for first dates, family gatherings or big celebrations! The atmosphere is perfect for all. And the service is provided by a fun, friendly yet professional staff that you can't wait to see again soon.

    Food was excellent, as was the service. We visited on a Friday evening at 8pm so it was very busy and very noisy, which was the only thing that took away from the ambiance (and it was too hot and humid to sit outside on the much quieter patio). Despite that we still had a very nice experience and highly recommend a visit. Try the Scallops and Pork Belly Peanut Jam entree!

    We ate outside, so it was a bit hot, but our meal made it well worthwhile! The charred octopus was fantastic as usual--best I have ever had in Tampa. All the veggies accompanying the octopus were delectable. Vegetables I would never think to combine, but together were delicious. The duck was also fantastic--and I don't even normally even like duck! Not greasy or gamey in the least, with a great flavor. The Thistle and Thorn Cabernet was also excellent. Always a great place to go to not get the same typical fare!

    This is my third time eating at Edison and every meal better than the last. Everything is so creative and full of unexpected but delicious flavors. I just moved to the area from San Francisco and Edison Food + Drink Lab is the only restaurant that is at par with what I’m used to there. Knowledge staff, fun menus, great drinks, all work together to create truly memorable evening out. Keep up the great work and can other restaurants please learn from you guys.

    I took my husband to Edison for his birthday and we had a fabulous time. Every employee we encountered wished him a Happy Birthday. I'd classify Edison as a special occasion restaurant. It is expensive, but completely worth it. Staff is very warm and accommodating and the food was amazing. Not your run of the mill dishes. Very eclectic. Also, the cocktails are delicious and creative. Edison is a place to take someone you want to impress. They sure impressed us.

    Haven’t had a bad meal, service, or even a single dish here in 5 or 6 years until tonight. It’s our go to place to recommend and visit. My daughter graduated high school and wanted to treat her to a nice meal. Service was subpar. Cheese board was delivered to the table and for the first time in probably 10 visits it was not explained to us what was on the board. Waitress asked if we’d like more crostinis and they were just never brought to the table. Main courses came out as we waited for them to arrive so the cheese board was pushed to the side. Wood grilled octopus dish was one of the worst meals I’ve had a restaurant in recent memory. There is a local seafood restaurant that cooks octopus well so I had high hopes for Edison. It was tough, the wood grilled/char completely overwhelmed the octopus. The remaining parts of the dish were extremely underwhelming as well. Edison has always been a place where everything just works together on a plate and it completely missed the mark. I ate it because I was hungry and after the crostinis not being delivered I questioned what the service would be like to replace a dish. The hostess/manager? came by and apologized and was very nice after I told the waitress of the bad experience and I know they would have replaced the dish or cooked something differently but I think I was just so disappointed after so many great meals here.
