    2 of 3 dishes were cold. They were nice when my son asked to swap to salad instead of having his chicken dish redone. They just put ny wife's chicken dish in a microwave or the broiler to heat it, as it was now hot but dry as heck. The 3rd dish the Edison burger was warm not hot. Fries were hot. The pretzel appetizer was amazing. So overall not really impressed with the food. If I was going for appetizers and drinks really great place.

    The Edison is a very unique and cool looking place. The atmosphere and theming is very nice. The food is very expensive for what it is but the taste was good to our likings. The spinach cheese dip appetizer was excellent! I’d go again but probably not for a full meal with a family. I’d rather go for just a drink and an appetizer during some entertainment on stage.

    We chose The Edison because they were serving the traditional Thanksgiving meal. I made reservations about 6 weeks prior to Thanksgiving. We arrived at 6:00 p.m. for our 6:15 p.m. reservation just to find out they were sold out of the Thanksgiving meal. We were very disappointed. Clearly the managerial staff didn't plan appropriately based on the reservations they had. The meals we chose off of the limited menu were ok at best. We won't be going back when we return to Disney Springs.

    Chose The Edison for our Thanksgiving celebration specifically because they offered a traditional meal, however they were completely sold out by our 6:00pm reservation time. Very disappointing!

    We went for Thanksgiving to have a traditional dinner. We ordered drinks and I ordered my usual Tito’s martini which was $18 and seemed watered down. The service was slow and probably because they said they were waiting for more turkey to be cooked. It was only 2:30 but they were already behind on that. When we got our meal, the plate came with white and dark meat, a small portion of dressing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and green bean casserole. The price was $39 for a less than average Thanksgiving dinner. In addition we ordered the bread service for $9 which consisted of four dinner rolls and two cornbreads. We couldn’t believe that they didn’t have coffee or ice tea to serve so we skipped dessert. I don’t think we’ll go back based on this lackluster meal.

    Well….they ran out of turkey for our 12:45 Thanksgiving meal. We have bets going. Turkeys were not thawed out enough, instead of ordering 10 turkeys, it came out as 1 or they burnt the turkeys. Our burgers were great, but we are disappointed. This is our 3rd year at Disney Springs for Thanksgiving. We should have kept our reservation for Raglan that we made initially.

    First time we came we really loved it. But as a vegetarian the choice was very disappointing in fact I only saw one choice which I couldn't eat. So I only had a portion of fries. My husband on the other hand who is a meat eater said the food was good. Needs to be a bigger and better choice for vegetarians. By the way veggies don't eat fish,

    First of all, the ambience was incredible. The entire place is a masterpiece of design. And the frequent live jazzy sort music added a lot to the vibe. Service was fantastic - friendly, timely, and genuinely caring. The candied bacon hangar was super delicious, as were the parmesan wedges. Maybe the best potatoes have ever had. The NY Strip was large and cooked to perfection, but was slightly lacking in flavor. Luckily the chimichurri sauce brought the steak experience about 2 notches higher. I didn't mind the high prices, because I was already prepared going in. Your not just paying for food, but an overall wonderful experience. Highly recommend!

    We were early for our reservation but was seated right away. We preferred outside but was told we would have to order at the bar and carry it out ourselves so we stayed in. We noticed later the was entertainment downstairs which we would have preferred. Restaurant was busy and seemed to have a good vibe. Our server came over right away but we needed more time to look at the menu. The server pushed a little and then kept checking on us. Our app was very good as was our entree. The air conditioning was blasting overhead so I was uncomfortable so we left instead of getting dessert.

    We enjoyed the ambience, live entertainment and food. Our server was friendly and obviously highly capable of delivering excellent service but we got the impression they really needed the table as we felt very rushed. Our server rushed our order and started walking away before we had given all our drinks orders and the check was delivered to the table as soon as we had finished our entrees before we asked for it and we were not even offered the dessert menu. We were pretty full so it didn't matter too much but it would have been nice to have been offered it and we may have ordered something to share if an item caught our attention. I won't name him as we suspected he was under orders to turn tables quickly - it was a shame as it meant we enjoyed it a little less than we had hoped and we wouldn't rush back.
