I had been hearing about this place for sometime, so on a Friday night with friends in tow, we headed down to check things out - we were not disapointed. I have to say that I've never seen such an incredible combination of fresh, imaginative, and wonderful dish presentations. The menu is ever changing, so what I had, may or may not be available when you go, which is great, since I can't wait to return to try some other things. O.K. - Let's address the location and noise issues first. The location and parking (use valet) is not the best. I kept imagining this place in North Tampa or in a building where the noise would be less (it's not that bad) but if the atmosphere were just a little better, seats a little more comfortable, then I think you would have a tough time even getting a reservation. The food - awesome.....sharing is a must! Between 4 of us we started with Goat cheese truffles, ecargot, and Krupuk (prawn chips with fish spread) and of course wine. After these tasty appetizers we had crab salads, and a kale salad that were amazing and bursting with freshness. The main couses were chicken and waffles, monkfish, Hawaiian opah, and snapper. The desserts were sugar crusted butter cake and a chocolate torte, with coffee from a vacuum pot served table side. The menu is amazing, and I would reccomend ordering a variety of appetizers among your group and sharing those, if you want to do dinner that way, but you'll miss the incredble main dishes. Everything we had that night was perfection in cooking - the sides that are paired with the mains (my opah had coconut rice and mussels) were truly astounding. My group kept looking at each other as we ate with dumbstruck expressions of "I can't beleive how good this is" There are flavors going on in these dishes, that you just don't find anymore, especially in Tampa, and the Chef here at Edison has nailed it! The wait staff was great. Our waitress, Marisol, was so helpful in helping us thru all the choices available and making our evening great. They have added a mixed drink menu of flavored cocktails, which I didn't get to try, and the wines are offered by the glass, flask, and bottle. On average we spent about $100.00 per person with tip, which is less than you would expect with food of this caliber. Can't wait to go back!
