    Took our friends from NY who were amazed by the food, magic and ambience. Can’t beat the food here; Ostrich steak was delicious as was the Kobe beef. Highly recommend the frog legs and pork belly appetizers. Definitely a word-class, five star experience.

    Pricey with not too many entree options. You have to like meats. They do have 1 salmon dish & a veggie one but it was nothing to be anxious for. The lamb chops were eh, I’ve had better. They were tough (med rare). The ostrich was VERY tough and not as hyped as they make it to be. Waiter mentioned it was tender like a filet which it was not. It was already sliced. The sauce however is a brandy cognac sauce which was yummy. The pork belly was not really pork belly because we couldn’t find the fat. The dried ginger that was misconstrued for mushrooms was overbearing. Drinks were good and the show was ok for 30min of reading people’s minds. We never made it to the magicians afterward because they were either swarmed with people or taking a break at the bar.

    Very disappointing! We were so excited to get a reservation while family was in town from Arizona. After making our way downtown an hour before our 9:15 reservation so that we could walk around in the restaurant and see some magic as well as experience all that HOC has to offer we were told it was too crowded and we couldn’t be let in until the exact time was of our reservation (9:15). We returned at 9:15 and had to wait another 20 min to be seated. Dinner took a while longer than usual to get to the table which left very little time to experience anything other than the ticketed magic show which was great but not enough. I went on line for reservation but only available time was 9:15. Would not do it again

    The magic is great. The show itself that you must buy and entree per ticket to get admission to was good, but short. The tableside magic was entertaining and doesn't require purchase of an entree. The explanation on the website is a little confusing about how the show/food requirements work, so hope this helps someone! Last thing: it is expensive, and while the food was good (salmon wasn't great, but they really push/are "known for" their steaks, according to our waiter), I still think overpriced for what you get. I have had better tasting/more fresh food other places at less cost.

    Second time dining at House of Cards and was fortunate enough to have JD as my knowledgeable server both times. His food knowledge and see if is amazing. Best food I’ve ever experienced in Nashville. Highly recommend the lamb chops and scallops. Will continue to recommend to others every chance I get.

    What more can I say than this was truly a magical experience! The staff are so welcoming and show genuine joy for what they do. The magic itself will blow your mind. The magicians call on the crowd to help out, which makes it interactive and engaging. There is complimentary parking and they provide you with a professional photo of you and your guests. It truly is an experience all should consider taking. You won't have any regrets!

    Everyone needs to experience HOC at least once! We started with the beet and goat cheese croquettes and they were delicious. Highly recommend the bullet catch if you’re deciding on a drink choice. Entree wise, you can’t make a wrong move. There are vegan and vegetarian friendly options, both were delicious. The mac and cheese is a MUST. Make sure to save room for dessert too otherwise you’ll be sad you missed out. The magic show afterwards is so fun and interactive. Waterfall and cigar lounge is a nice touch. This place truly makes you feel like you’re in a movie! 10/10!

    The restaurant has a speakeasy feel which is fun. But what makes this place amazing is how up close and personal you get with the magicians—you are across the table from them. And frankly I found myself stunned no less than a couple dozen times—I was left speechless. And to wrap up the evening all persons in our party agreed the food was excellent! Worth twice the price!
