    House of Cards has to be one of the coolest places I have ever been. We went on family night and could not have had a better time. The feel of as if you’re heading to an underground illegal gambling facility or something was just the coolest experience. The food was incredible. If I had to say anything negative it would just be that it is expensive which will keep me from getting to go as much as I’d like but definitely would recommend this for anyone in Nashville.

    This was my second time coming to House of Cards. The first time was with a group of girlfriends and this time with my boyfriend for our anniversary. Just like last time, the food was delicious, the ambiance was lovely, and the magic show was mind blowing. I’ll continue to come back here any time I have a special event in Nashville.

    By far one of the best restaurant experiences I’ve had! The atmosphere was easy going and relaxed, the magician shows were fun and entertaining, and the food was to die for! I had the frog legs as an appetizer, snow aged Japanese Wagyu 6oz Ribeye, side of Mac n cheese (dinner), the crème brûlée cheesecake and chocolate cake (dessert) and EVERYTHING was delicious. The bartenders James and Ashley were very friendly and helpful. James helped make variations of different cocktails based off flavors I liked (Lavender, Honey, herbal, whiskey, clear liquor, etc). I will definitely go back to this restaurant again soon!

    Everything on the menu is alacarte. Server was asked if sides could be shared and he said no and demonstrated very small portions so we ordered multiple sides. All sides easily could serve 2 and possibly 3 thus added a about $100 to the bill. Salads were shareable as well. Overall food quality was good. Magic show was good but the magicians around the room were more entertaining. A party of 4 with 2 glasses of wine exceeded $500. Worth experiencing once.

    The shows were too short. Th price of the meal included the show. The price of drinks was sky high and was served in baby cups. The meal was better good not for the price. The room was very nice, I also like checking the ID, was told again about the show. To summary your price is too high and the show was good but it took longer to get very one in the room. To only see a 15 minute show at best. Hope this help.

    JD was our waiter tonight and he did a phenomenal job! It was my birthday and JD did a great job making it feel special for mine and my girlfriends first time eating at House of Cards. He recommended foods including the pork belly appetizer that we ended up getting. It was the highlight of both of our meals. I got the Ostrich and my girlfriend got the bone-in ribeye. Both were cooked perfectly and were delicious!The environment was great and romantic. The magic show was wonderful and had us all in awe. My girlfriend got called up as a volunteer and I was able to participate too. Definitely added to our amazing experience. Already looking forward to going again!

    Magic show was good, everyone was really nice from the wait staff and greet staff. Salmon was sent back and I was given a new freshly good piece. Drinks were good. Food had no flavor, don’t feel pressured to dress up. Women can pretty much get away with anything except for jeans.

    This was our 2nd trip to House of Cards. Our first trip was an amazing experience, but this trip was subpar. We brought family with us for this trip and they never came around to take a picture with us. Our first experience all guest looked amazing, this trip you couldn’t tell there was a dress code. It’s difficult to get my family to dress up, but they did. When we arrived they wouldn’t let a guest in that wasn’t in proper attire which she looked much better than others. They allowed others to be in flip flops and Sun dresses, not cocktail dresses. Most of the food was great, one of the guest had a NY strip and he said it was tough. Pros though our server, JD was great and the magicians were awesome as well.
