Edwins Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The food was amazing. My salmon cooked perfectly and my vegetarian wife was very impressed with her options. My bread plate or glass was never empty and the servers were extremely polite and efficient. I love the mission as well. The only complaint I had was it was very warm inside but it was a hot day.
The lamb chops and duck were the hits at our table; as well as, the lemon souffle and sorbet. We never had to want for anything as someone was always there to serve without being in the way. Bill our server was awesome. Very personable and happy to help us.
As always, food and service were exceptional. Michael, our server, was especially friendly and efficient. Everyone should experience Edwin's at least once. I always feel like I'm contributing to something worthwhile just by dining at Edwin's.
Edwins is our favorite special occasion place. The food is unfailingly delicious and generous, and the service is nothing less than extraordinary. I would not suggest it for a quickie
"before theater" meal because Edwins is a place where one should take the time to savor the wonderful food with just one person or a group of friends. It is, indeed, a "gem."
Placed our reservation on the open table, got seated on arrival promptly, were given an endless supply of french bread and water refills, including changing the sparkling water just because it became "too still" while we talked!
We went there with our teenagers - and they were in for a shock of how above and beyond the service was!
We had a lovely dinner at Edwins to celebrate our anniversary. I had the warmed goat cheese salad and potato crusted walleye with a wonderful sauce and crisp green beans. Both were delicious! The pinot noir was very nice and moderately priced. Our server did an excellent job - she was attentive without being an overbearing presence. Best of all, Edwins helps employ and teach restaurant skills to those in need of reentering society and the workforce. Kudos to this program!
Edwin's offers a unique opportunity to do good while being totally indulgent. The food is perfectly prepared classical French with some fresh twists and is absolutely delicious. Service is very attentive, and these students are very serious about their work; our server, Chantrell, was delightfully upbeat & friendly. We'll definitely be back-we have a new favorite!
This was our first experience at Edwin's. We had heard positive feedback from friends and the reviews were positive. We were not disappointed.
We decided to dine there to celebrate our sons birthday. Everyone ordered something different from the bouillabaisse to duck. Everyone's meal was served hot and excellently prepared. We requested a birthday cake for dessert. It was prepared by an outside bakery and was excellent. The salads and apps were fresh and flavorful.
The service while timely was disjointed. We had no less than four to five people approach our table after we first arrived but no one identified themselves as our wait person and it was confusing. Once we finally figured it out, we were able to order drinks and ask for a some'. When ordering we asked for recommendations or signature dishes. Our waiter indicated he does not like French food and has only tried the burger. We understand the premise of Edwin's is to help mainstream the previously incarcerated, but not what we expected.
If not for the service experience, it would have been a five star rating.
Our server Brian was very personable and sweet. He really wanted to do well for us. Lisa is extremely knowledgeable with the incredible amount of cheeses on the cheese cart. Enjoyed the decadent cherries jubilee and sweet bday surprise! Love absolutely everything about this restaurant!
What a beautiful night! First time there after hearing such wonderful reviews. From the minute we arrived, nothing but the best service, conversation & food! Everyone was knowledgeable from preparation to pairing Definitely going back
We came in for my girlfriends birthday and had never been to Edwin's before. Christina was our server and she was phenomenal! We asked her a million questions about the menu and she knew it all and had excellent recommendations. All four courses came out at the perfect time, and they even added a candle on our dessert for the occasion! We will definitely be back!
My 8 months pregnant wife and I went for our tenth anniversary. The meal was outstanding, and the service was great. The staff congratulated us several times on our upcoming child and wished us a happy anniversary. Some of the staff had questionable personal fashion choices, but nothing so outrageous that negatively impacted the full experience, and the staff was so courteous that it was easy to overlook.
The food and service are outstanding., but the portion size of the delicious scallop dish (3 scallops) was a disappointment.The noise level of the discordant music was very bad: I had to ask twice to lower the noise level. Given the small size of the restaurant and the number of tables, there should be no music.
We are looking forward to return to Edwin's to try the canard presse.
Edwin's rehabilitation program is admirable.
Food and service were very good. Unfortunately, we were seated in a dark corridor with many other guests requiring a small pocket flashlight from a waiter to read the menu. I noted that the portion of the restaurant where we entered was brighter and less noisy. I would return to Edwins if I could insist on seating in the entry portion.
Delicious food. Servers and staff who try very hard and go out of their way to make sure you have a pleasant dining experience. Only negative is the cheese course. The cheese cart is AMAZING, however, for $4, you get the tiniest portion of cheese. Definitely overpriced. Love everything else about Edwins.
Edwin's is always a treat and this was no exception. The food was excellent, as we've come to expect. Service was what you would expect from a restaurant of Edwin's calibre. The edwin's mission is something that I believe in, but it'd be great place even without that. Couldn't have asked for more.
