    I was equally impressed by the food and the magic. I was in awe of the tricks the various magicians performed, the food was incredible, and the ambience was perfect. I will definitely go back! Oh, and the service was excellent!

    Had a wonderful date night at House of Cards. The filet was superb, I think it may be the best steak I have ever had! We had impeccable service, JD was our server and he was so knowledgeable and helpful. The magic was good, not anything really crazy, and it’s a super high price tag. We had a great time though and loved our food, would love to go back sometime!

    House of Cards was a wonderful treat; everything we ordered was above and beyond delicious, we thoroughly enjoyed the gentleman performing with cards, the ambiance was stunning, and I cannot say enough good things about the service. Every single person we interacted with was friendly, warm, accommodating, and professional. The service was top-tier, particularly our server Nolan! I really appreciated how welcoming this place felt, and the ability to enjoy a nice dinner conversation in a beautiful setting. If you are looking for a unique place to enjoy a wonderful dinner, especially if you enjoy magic, House of Cards is a great choice.

    We had a tremendous experience from the moment we walked through the door. All employees were helpful, knowledgeable and outgoing. Matthew was our bartender/server. He personified high level customer service. The food was great and the magic acts were truly amazing. This was our first night in Nashville and House of Cards was a perfect start. It will not disappoint.

    Unbelievable experience, worth every penny. I was unsure if the food would match the magic but it was incredible. The rack of lamb was perfectly cooked and dressed. The card tricks were as much fun as the main show. We spent several hours there and enjoyed every minute.

    Exactly what my wife and I was looking for to celebrate our anniversary. The staff is amazing with a personalized tour before being seated. Our drink, appetizers, main course and dessert was all on point. And the magic show was fun, although I wish it was a little longer. Highly recommend for a date night.

    Unbelievable. House of Cards was by far one of the best dining experiences we’ve ever had. We had the Wagyu tartare and it was flawless, worth every penny. The magic show was creative and engaging, drinks were delicious and service (we had bar seats) with Ashley was attentive and respectful. Highly, highly recommend for a special and unique night out in Nashville.

    Oh what a night!! We went in knowing little about the experience and we were blown away by the decor and ambience. The secret, speakeasy style was so fun; from the unmarked door with security to the magic book, red velvet and sparkling chandeliers-it was so decadent! Our server was very thorough and attentive and the drinks were delicious! Magic around every corner-the side magicians were so fun and a delight to engage with and we enjoyed the main show guest. The food!! Oh my gosh, the food!! We knew it was quite expensive going in, but we were so pleasantly delighted with the quality and taste of every menu item we tried. Sides are generous and entrees mouthwatering. It's definitely a full experience that is worth the investment for special occasions!

    We have been to House of Cards once before this visit. Each time we have enjoyed the musicians and found something new that we had not seen before. We changed up what we had to eat and the food was again excellent. We were visited by the GM during our dinner to see if we were ok and that was a very nice touch. Overall will come back again for a third time.

    2nd time at House of Cards and it did not disappoint. Our server Matthew was outstanding, guiding us from start to finish throughout the entire experience. We greatly appreciated his insight on our tour around the museum as well as helping us navigate the menu. He gave us a few laughs as well from some creative, witty comments. We ended up staying for a couple of hours even after the show, wandering around the restaurant and enjoying the side bar magicians. All in all excellent experience and my family had an amazing time for their first House of Cards night. Thank you!

    Great overall experience Good was late to table and no steak knives provided until requested, felt rushed to enjoy the full entertainment experience because not allowed to leave table until meal is done, which would have been fine if food delivery did not take so long. Magicians are amazing!!!

    We came to celebrate a birthday and had an amazing experience. Upon arriving, we were greeted by extremely friendly staff, and given a tour of the restaurant. Our server, Brandon was exceedingly kind and helpful. His recommendations were spot on and his knowledge of the menu was exceptional. Everything we ordered was delicious. The ambience was incredible and like no other restaurant you will visit. After dinner, the shows were mind blowing and left us in disbelief of what was happening before our eyes. Overall, we could not have asked for a better birthday celebration. We would highly recommend House of Cards to those visiting Nashville and locals alike. Again, thank you so much Brandon for making sure our experience was out of this world.

    We attended the Sunday brunch for my son’s 16th birthday. We had heard about it but never attended. It was a fun experience. Sunday is for the 21 and under crowd so be prepared for possible groups of children. The staff was very kind and accommodating. The magic was great. We didn’t have cash with us to tip the magicians, note for next time. The food was really good. Amazing biscuits! The buffet area got a little disheveled after awhile but there were a lot of people eating. We lived the picture. We would go again.

    This was our second trip, our first time with kids. I will tell anyone that is thinking about going then you should! It's a great time. The only negatives were the service was slower this time even though it was less crowded and there were adults in blue jeans. Normally, that wouldn't be a big deal, but if you're going to make a rule it should be enforced.
