We passed in front of Edward's so many times , seeing that place crowded as well as the poster from Time Out saying it is one of the 50 best brunch places in New York, that we decided to go for dinner on a Friday night. Not surprisingly, we got our table in this place that had a bistro feel. Yes it was crowded and noisy, especially around the bar area. Menu wise, it looked like a mix of cuisines, that is never an issue if executed well. I am not sure what happened that night, but it did not match our expectations...First, the service, although courteous was slow and waited a long time for our food to come. We ordered four appetizers that were served in large plates and, instead of asking us if they could bring them two by two, they brought everything together, trying to setup four large plates on a small table, making the experience uncomfortable.
The appetizers were:
Guacamole and chips: I found it watery and some of the chips were old. I mentioned it to the manager who graciously removed it from the bill, that is a gesture I truly appreciated.
Crab cake with lemon butter sauce: not the best crab cake for sure, but decent (I was not expecting much in this king of place though but know that this is not made with jumbo lump crab).
Fish tacos: simply mushy and definitely not a dish I would recommend.
Mushroom quesadilla: served with pico de gallo and sour cream, it was just ok.
We passed on desserts at that point...That was definitely disappointing. Would I go back to Edward's? Maybe for brunch, but probably not for dinner.
