Besides food, one thing that determines if a visit will be good or bad is the service. Service was SLOW and HORRIBLE! The restaurant was fairly crowded so it took us about 10 min to be seated. Once we were seated, we waited about 15...More

Edgewater has a wide range of international cuisine. Ethiopian Diamond makes you feel like you've just landed in Africa. From the cushy pillows to the coffee served traditionally to the delicious food that can be eaten without utensils, it's a great experience.
