I made a reservation for my husband and I to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary we checked in they asked us to stand to the side hostess came to sit us down at a very small two table on the side next to a wall we mentioned to her that it was our 21st wedding anniversary and this is where they were going to put us she didn’t respond back nor did she say anything to us. The restaurant had just opened up at five so there were plenty of seats available. We could had said something to our server but it wasn’t her fault so we juts delt with it. Probably will not go back there again.

The Edison was amazing. The atmosphere was perfect, a mix of steam punk, classic jazz, and the roaring 20s. It provides food you would not see in most locations. Good and interesting!

The ambiance at The Edison was excellent, 3 nice bars, great decor, live music. Dinner was pricey for the choices but the live music more than compensated for this. Great value for the price, I would HIGHLY recommend!

Good food and good service. However in my reservation I stated it was my fiancée's birthday and if it was possible for them to do anything special for her. This request was ignored and not acknowledged.

I have eaten at The Edison many times and never found it wanting. But I was disappointed in the food, especially the prime rib. The appearance of the meat looked perfect, but it was barely warm. I don't know if it sat a long time before it was served or what, but it was certainly not worth $43.00 a serving.

Limited menu but good except for pricing. They love their glazed bacon strips, four pieces of bacon for $18, wow. Drink prices crazy. And keep in mind we were there prior to entertainment starting so no extra value there.

Cool Venue, just do a walk through.

We visited this restaurant with a 3 YO and was pleasantly surprised at the options and experience we had. The service was great, provided nice suggested menu items and drinks. We ordered two apps, the Bacon and Spinach dip. For dinner we had short rib, spare ribs and the grilled cheese and soup. All we’re delicious and well prepared.

While we were a little early for live music, the overall ambiance and table we were seated at were truly lovely. Would definitely come back for a late night drink and music!

Hostesses were not kind in any way. Place was slow and 1/3 empty. Food was mediocre. Burgers flavor good, but overcooked. Fries cold. Our server was so sweet but absentminded. Overall, beautiful place but not worth the expensive prices. $18 for bacon, $25 for a burger.

Upon arrival we were seated almost immediately. That was surprising as we were a wee bit early. Unfortunately the table we were sat had no lighting and I guess the tv above it was counted on for lighting but it was inoperable according to the server. So near zero lighting. I ordered the bacon hanger and couldn’t tell there were pickles in the cup that’s how dark.

The meal came fairly swiftly but was somewhat cold. The loaded potato was definitely cold. Five of us and the one that had a hot grilled cheese and soup probably had the best meal. That’s not the norm here. Generally I look to go here if there is a time available but this trip was luckily not my first time or I would be way more reluctant to return. We will give it another shot and see if that are back to what I expect. The server was great though so that was their shining moment. Sad to have to render this type of review.

We enjoyed the food. Our server had excellent knowledge of the menu and provided recommendations. We enjoyed sitting on the level that looked down on the stage. The piano performer was excellent. We loved the Speakeasy theme of the restaurnant.

The atmosphere of the Edison is great. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the live music was at a level that you can still have a conversation so that was cool too.

Menu is a little pricey which I guess is to be expected but overall there's a great place to check out.

We made a reservation for 545. Showed up early at 4ish. Asked if there was a table available. They said 30 minutes wait. No problem. Can we sit at the bar and have a drink while we wait? Sure. At 524 we still hadn't been seated , asked the bar tender to call up and see what's up. Oh we checked you in for 545???? The real problem was the hostesses attitude. UNBELIEVABLE!! This was the last place on the world she wanted to be and she made sure everyone knew it. At this point we had several drinks with no food. Just decided it was better to leave. Oh did I mention this was our Christmas dinner experience. Merry Christmas.

The food options were very specific and all incredibly well prepared. The Salmon was one of the best I've ever had and the choices for wine and beer were very good, including some local favorites. The atmosphere is very theatrically designed and fun to see and the entertainment either in the afternoon or better yet in the evening is great. Seating downstairs reminds me of the perfect coffee house lounge seating for dinner and a show. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Service was good- the food was not! Would go for cocktails and ambiance, but would not eat there again. Burger was undercooked, fries were cold, mahi was over seasoned, salmon overcooked. Save yourself the money- go elsewhere for a good meal, stop here for a cocktail.

The restaurant was beautuful. The entrertainment was great! The food was delicious! Our server was just not good. She had zero personality and offered no suggestions. She came to the table, never even introducing herself and simply said "drinks?". Terrible. Never came over to ask how food was. Just came over to table when we were finished to clear plates. I asked for the check and showed my annual pass which she ignored and did not apply (after waiting 15 minutes for the check to be delivered).

Also, there was a very intoxicated guest who was allowed (with the manager watching!) To pull up a random chair SIX INCHES away from me while taking creepy videos of the performers! He literally pulled up a chair so close to me that he may as well have been sitting with us! A waitress noticed how uncomfortable i was and asked him to please move back to allow for social distancing (not to mention personal space of other patrons!)! He ignored her and the manager watched and never said a WORD. I was beyond disappointed in the awful service and by the way employees\management deal with intoxicated guests who are disrupting other patrons meals.

Lastly, it was my brothers 35th birthday which we had noted in the reservation AND called in prior to arriving. No surprise the awful waitress never even acknowledged it.

I am embarassed that i took my out of town family here to celebtate my brothers birthday. With all the other options around, I have no desire to go back.

Everything was perfect from the minute we walked in the door. We were seated promptly, before our reservation time. Our server Daniel was friendly, knowledgable, and efficient. Our food arrived on time and was hot and delicious. I have only one comment regarding the salmon I ordered - it was not fresh which is understandable given today's climate, but I could tell it had been defrosted. The entertainment was superb - The American Girls Trio was awesome! The ambiance was on point and aesthetically pleasing. Overall we really enjoyed ourselves and will be back.

Great food. Service a little slow (had our starter finished before we had our ordered drinks arrive). Although it was busy so that might be a factor.

Both my wife and I enjoyed the night though. Thank you.
