    Our plane got in early so we got to the restaurant 45 min early. The host was so accommodating- welcomed us with a smile & took us directly to our table. We chose to sit at the bar instead of the table offered & that was a great choice because the bartenders were amazing. They were so pleasant, helpful, & knowledgeable. We got the candied bacon for an appetizer. We each got a cocktail. I got “a dame’ll sting ya” which was VERY good. My hubby got a Vespa martini (not on the menu). We had tried the Vespa martini at other places …& this was by far one of the best. We also enjoyed the Edison burger which was exactly as advertised. Yes, it’s a little pricey, but we knew that before making the reservation since the menu with prices is online. I would definitely go back & recommend this place!

    Our party of three ate lunch at The Edison yesterday. We each ordered a burger & they were all cooked to our stated preferences & were delicious. They were even able to accommodate my daughter with a gluten free toasted bun for her burger. The French fries were great, but the side salad had some odd tasting cheese on it & through it. Goat cheese maybe? The burger was so filling that I probably couldn't have finished the salad anyway. The server was polite & knowledgeable. When we couldn't get our phones to pull up the menu, we were given paper menus. We were told that they were not up to date, but it worked out just fine. They have a stage set up for live music. No one was performing while we were there, perhaps it's just for evenings.

    Seated us in an obstructed table away from stage Food was ok but very expensive My fiancé’s salad was underwhelming On open table, it said that music was played from 10 pm until closing Actually, music only played from 9 pm to 10 pm and band left— disappointing

    Had a fabulous dinner here. Waiter was friendly and attentive. I had the Edison cocktail and the short ribs. Both were delicious. As others have noted, the service is a bit slow, but not unreasonably so. Great place to relax and have a cocktail.

    We made a reservation to celebrate my son's 17th birthday! He's a major history buff so we thought it may be a great choice! We were more than right! From the moment we walked in we felt transported into the 20's! The band was playing today's hits, 20's style, the ambiance was awesome and the decor spot on! We had the clothesline bacon (A MUST) and giant pretzel to start! Tomato soup and grilled cheese and the Edison burger were enjoyed at the table! This is a hidden gem in Disney Springs, WOW! Our waitress was great, food came fast and they brought ice cream and a chocolate chip cookie for the birthday boy! We will FOR SURE be going back!

    This is my favorite restaurant in Disney Springs! The atmosphere is incredible with an industrial, steampunk, 1920s vibe! There’s live entertainment every night and the singers are in period costumes and perform modern songs but with a 20s twist. It’s so much fun and the food is great too. We had an incredible cocktail there: PORTHOLE FOR TWO which was buffalo trace bourbon, honey, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, cinnamon, orange served in a pothole infuser! Delish and beautiful presentation. We also had the "CLOTHESLINE" CANDIED BACON appetizer, NEW YORK STRIP, and SHORT RIB. All delicious.

    I had an amazing experience thanks to the outstanding and remarkable service of Danielle. Her knowledge on the liquors were great and I loved all her recommendations. I love the way she broke the menu down for me and my date making it easy for us to choose our dinner. My date especially was highly impressed with the cocktails Jay made for her and I will say it was a good choice. Great bar team, great host team, great vibes in the restaurant. Thanks for making our date a memorable experience. Danielle ❤️

    The restaurant and theming was beautiful! The service/server and other employees were also very nice. My one complaint is how high the price is for what you get. We got the bacon appetizer and it was 4 slices of bacon for almost 20 dollars. I feel like the food could absolutely be better to match how beautiful the restaurant is.

    This popular place is a good choice if love ambience. But it’s Disney and most restaurants on the property don’t have great food. I know people love these places, and good for them, but I’ve tried many - there are a few gems but this place isn’t one of them.

    The Edison is a great venue to enjoy. The staff is great, the food options are unique and worth a try. I don’t usually order burgers in a ‘nice’ restaurant, but the Edison burger is well worth fine dining status.

    We arrived early and enjoyed a drink at the bar; the bartender was energetic, friendly, and attentive. We liked both the Edison Beer and the Edison Cocktail. By the time we were seated, we had reviewed the menu and immediately placed our order. Service was extremely slow with the appetizer arriving and the dinner plates arriving. We weren't in a hurry as we enjoyed the entertainment, but would have appreciated the appetizers arriving in a more timely manner. Food was OK, but we won't be back to the restaurant, as there are better options available based on our previous experiences.

    The food was good (I had short rib and my husband had the Philly Grilled Cheese) Our server was excellent and we enjoyed the live music (although very short intervals). I thought there were going to be other performers walking around or a burlesque show but none of that occured. Disney website is very hard to determine what is going on at what times at Disney Springs. It is very vague and difficult for planning.
