Even when we are just passing by Tallahassee on InterState 10 we stop off and go to The Edison. Food is just fantastic and the waiters are all personable. Great setting on the park...sit outside if weather permitting.

It's really sad about this place. The ambiance is perfect, especially sitting outside with views of Cascade Park and the Tallahassee skyline. The food is good. It's just that the place seems to have a fatal flaw that they don't seem to be able to...More

The waiter, somewhat nerdy guy named Tony waited on us (group of 5) Friday, August 3, 2018. He calls me bossman, touches my arm two or three times and squeezes the area next to my neck during the time we were there! He also mocked...More

The service was extremely slow and the wait staff were chatting with each other. When dinner was served not all parties were served at the same time. The steak was well done and ordered rare; sent back and again on well side. When I received...More

The Edison is a great historic building in a great location. Located at the Cascades in Tallahassee, it has a pretty overview. We ate on the second floor outside balcony on a Thursday. (There is seating on the ground floor, second floor balcony, and inside.)...More

No dress code was posted, that I can think of. I’m sure you had to have actually clothes in vs. a swim suit. Website says to wear comfortable shoes as the property tour is about 45 minutes. There is also an actual museum... More

Our story is simple. After living in the city for over 22 years collectively, we noticed a major void in Tallahassee’s dining industry and knew it needed to be filled. Our beautifully restored building at the heart of our State Capital is a representation of our love of Florida and Tallahassee. On the menu you will find local, fresh from Florida products and classic items with preparations from all parts of our great state that offer something that Tallahassee has never experienced before. Paired with the picturesque backdrop of Cascades Park, there is no restaurant in town that offers a unique dining experience. It is our pleasure to show and share all of the great bounty that Florida, Tallahassee and Cascades Park has given us. It is our mission to showcase the best of Florida. Enjoy!
