    Amazing amazing! Magical! Sexy! Very very high end food and beverages with perfect presentation. Best salmon I’ve ever eaten. Everyone is dressed extremely nice! The building is covered in heavy red drapes. The talent was incredible. Love how the facility is totally hidden, there’s no signage. Highly recommend!

    My wife and I were there for our 40th anniversary. It was a perfect evening. Great food, great ambience, and the magic was world class. The price of the food is high but it covers free parking, a complimentary photo and great entertainment. Highly recommend this for an unusual night out!

    Excellent venue! Magicians were fantastic and definitely the best part of the night! Food was good but a little underwhelming. Service from everyone but our server was excellent. Our server was a little distant and did not tell us about how the experience would go until we asked. I would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a unique place for dinner and a show!

    We took our children to the family brunch on Sunday. The buffet was delicious and also had plenty of options for picky eaters. It is expensive but you are paying for top notch entertainment. The magicians are truly talented and they allow you to interact with them in addition to the main show in the Carter Theater. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are wanting an exceptional experience.

    Great venue for an evening of entertainment. We went on our son's birthday and he was very happy. This was our first visit and the first time he had heard of the place. The food was excellent and side portions were large enough to share, as we were told prior to ordering by our very thoughtful waitress. The magic shows really topped off a fun night of entertainment.

    Very fun place to go while in Nashville! Loved the atmosphere and food. Jamie was very helpful in helping us choose vegan options. The magic show was much shorter than expected for the price though... just 2-3 slow-paced tricks after dinner. A little pricey, but overall a really fun experience for special occasions. I have to note it was a bummer that no photography was allowed, so we couldn't document the birthday night... but I guess that's the mystery to this dinner and show - keeps it a surprise and secret! Will recommend! (PS: YES, the dress code is STRICTLY enforced)

    Honestly, not worth the money. We had a party of 5 and none of us were impressed with our steaks. The sides were great, thankfully. But considering the cheapest steak was $62, you would think they would’ve tasted amazing. They were overcooked and flavorless. We were wishing we had taken some A1 steak sauce with us. Additionally, the magic show was ok but only lasted about 15 minutes. We dropped over $1000 for a meal and magic show that were mediocre at best.

    We had a very high expectation of the ambience, the food, and the performers, and they were completely blown away. From the people who greeted us to the people who seated off, our waiter, I’m so sorry I can’t remember his name but I think I tipped him 35%, the food the ambience the performers and the overall experience was absolutely amazing and we cannot wait to come back again!

    10/10 would return again. The apps were well priced and the portions were big. Our server Robert paid every bit of attention to us and was kind enough to give us a complimentary glass of champagne for our anniversary. It was so thoughtful! The entrees were AWESOME. Salmon and steak cooked to perfection. The ambiance, interior design, and magic show after dinner was an absolute blast. Don’t hesitate, get your behind into House of Cards and tell all your friends about it too :) mahalo from Maui!!

    Wow. My boyfriend and I went to house of cards on a Tuesday night. We had the best meal and best time. Our waiter Jamie was phenomenal and we absolutely loved him. He had so much knowledge of the food and made our experience magical. The food was amazing. We tried the snow wagu with lobster tale. I truly believe this is one of the best meals I have ever had in my life. The show was great and enjoyed him so much. He definitely made us laugh and loved how he Involved the whole audience. Thank you for a magical night.
