Edwins Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Another good visit to EDWINS.
We typical get to EDWINS at least once a quarter. This time was in celebration for my sister's visit and birthday. The food was very good.
I continue to recommend the Cheese Cart to anyone who has a mild interest in enjoying cheese. They have selections anywhere on the spectrum of cheese for you to enjoy, and the staff is extremely knowledgeable, and will get you something that you will definitely enjoy.
The service continues to be a highlight. We occasionally get the opportunity to enjoy meals at the Dusquesne Club in Pittsburgh, and this is the only restaurant where the service is comparable (and sometimes better).
I continue to recommend it to all of my friends not only for special occasions, but in general to have a good meal.
Selected from the Restaurant Week menu. The asparagus soap was very good; just the right intensity of asparagus. The guinea fowl was very tasty with a nice sauce and good presentation. The chocolate pyramid was excellent. Would return for that alone. The wine pairings were well thought out and nicely complemented each dish.
We recently went as a family (4) yo celebrate my wife's birthday. Every aspect of this experience was fantastic. The food was breathtaking, the service impeccable but not overreaching, the preparation exquisite. One of the best meals I have had in the greater Cleveland area, bar none. We will definitely be back multiple times. Thanks and congrats Brandon!
This is a lovely gem of a place. Food was absolutely delicious. We had the lobster bisque, tarte lapin and the lapin moutarde, finished with a cheese selection and creme brulée. Wine was a 2015 Bourgouil, and at $45 was overpriced, but taken as a whole the dinner was worth the $200 we spent. Add a side note, the Calvados and William Pear Brandy were a pleasant end to the meal. We are definitely going back again.
This was for my 70th birthday and it was a very special evening. We had so many nice, friendly people waiting on our table. They got involved in the celebrating and were enthusiastic. The food was beyond delicious and the wine and Proseco hit the spot. Dessert was delicious too. Everything was perfect.
Our meals were delicious. Our service was a little difficult. The waiter had to be asked multiple times to bring us a fork for the main course after our main course had been delivered. Then we decided to have a plate of oysters after our main course and the waiter forgot it twice. I know it was unusual, but should not have been so difficult and then when it came, (we were splitting it) so we asked for another little fork and had to do that several times. Then when we signed the charge slips, the waiter claimed I took the wrong one, and I said I had left it on the plate and he had taken the plate away. I said he had it and was sure I had put it on the plate. He came back several times to tell me he did not have it, until finally - he found it. A bit annoying.
My boyfriend and I went to Edwin's for his birthday after discovering them through a Reddit AMA. Everything about the experience was extraordinary. They had a complimentary valet that didn't even blink at my boyfriend's manual transmission (there have been issues in the past). We were seated immediately with our reservation and were attended to within seconds. Our waiter, Zach, was outstanding and helped explain everything on the menu and offered suggestions.
The food was incredible and beautifully plated. We had the seafood sausage to start and I would definitely recommend it! I ordered the grouper, which was prepared perfectly and flaked apart without feeling dry, no fishy taste at all, and the wine butter sauce was delicious with it. He got the rabbit leg and lemon potatoes. The meat fell off the bone when he tried to cut into it. It was tender and flavorful, but he kept saying that the potatoes were the highlight of his meal because the lemon flavor really shine through, even with the gravy it was served with. Throughout the meal, attentive wait staff would make sure our water glasses and bread plates were always full so that we never had to ask for anything.
For dessert, we were offered their signature souffle, which Zach described as "like eating a cloud". Having never been treated to something so decadent before, I have to agree! It was fluffy and delicious. The sauce (which Zach artfully added for us) was just enough to bring the entire thing together.
All that being said, you will be paying about $50/person for a three course experience, more for any drinks imbibed. Plan ahead, because each course is worth it!
We will be returning again to Edwin's soon. It has quickly become top of my list for special occasions!
We go some place once a month with friends who live just a few miles from Edwin's. This was their first visit, not mine. Edwin's was superb when I needed a good venue on very short notice for another occasion. This time I ordered the burger, and it was done tableside. And the Bananas Foster was set afire within reach, too. Both floor shows were spectacular and the food was as good as the preparation. Edwin's is not just a great story. It is an event waiting to happen.
