Honestly the most amazing dining experience ever! The food was the best in Nashville, bar none. The steak, the special selected rubs topped with foie gras butter (euphoric), the fresh vegetables and I could go on. However, better than all of that was the magic. As a magic fan, I’ve seen it all. The House of Cards Nashville is doing it better than nearly everyone else and absolutely on par with the big name Vegas greats. To close out the evening, dessert and cocktails on the patio. The waterfall, the dessert a cigar selection worthy of their almost unbelievable whiskey collection was something others simply don’t or can’t offer. Mind blowing selections. This is truly a little slice of heaven and I’m already planning my next visit! PS - They actually carry certified Kobe a5 beef and it’s without words and worth every penny!
The whole retro look and feel of the bar is incredible... The service was outstanding as well.
Hi Jason, thank you for your kind words!
Wow! What a way to start our vacation. We can’t stop talking about our dinner and the entertainment was fantastic. Crazy good all the way around!
Thank you for this glowing review Teresa! We are so glad you joined us.
Brunch was amazing. Food was delicious. Service was even better. The ambiance is unbeatable. The magic show is just the icing on the cake.
Thank you so much for this glowing review! We are so glad you had a magical experience.
Everything about this restaurant and experience was amazing. We had a group of 6 for a birthday dinner and we are so happy we chose House of Cards. The magic was unreal and our waiter, James, was wonderful. We even got to speak with the General Manager, Joey, who was welcoming and gracious.
PS they have the absolute BEST Espresso Martini in town. I 10/10 recommend this restaurant.
Thanks for celebrating with us! We appreciate your recommendation and we will be sure share your compliments with our team.
A lot of fun with good food, magic shows were great.
Hi Cody, thank you for your compliments!
The ultimate ladies night experience. The magic and atmosphere are so much fun + the drinks and food were exceptionally good especially for a “themed” restaurant.
Thank you for your kind words! We are so glad you and your friends had a magical experience.
Finally!! A chef who could cook Pittsburgh style steak!
Amazing dining and magic show experience
Thank you for sharing your positive feedback Amy!
Our evening was delightful. The food was delicious, served at a perfect temperature, and the wait staff was wonderful. The wine was a little overpriced but otherwise, I have only glowing comments. I have already recommended it to numerous people and hope to visit again soon. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
Great value and incredible experience
Thank you John! We are glad you had a great experience.
This restaurant is a one of a kind experience! I had never experienced such an incredible meal. The ambiance is indescribable- I cannot wait to go back again!!!
Hi Brittany, we are so glad you enjoyed your experience with us and we look forward to welcoming you back!
Our evening at House of Cards was really fun! The food was good, but not great. The French onion soup was fantastic and the cocktails were excellent but that’s the only thing that stood out. Two gentlemen came over while dining - the one was INCREDIBLE (I wish I could remember his name - something like Anton or Amery??) But the second was was terrible. He used my hand to test his trick and I could feel the clear thread holding up the cigarette! We also clearly saw him hide a coin in his hat and figured out how his straw was “dancing”. Not great BUT - that first guy stole the show and blew our minds. The main performer was Kevin King - he was great - repeated a couple of tricks from the table guys but that was okay. The atmosphere is worth the trip and, while I’m pointing out the negatives, the evening was really a success and we all had a wonderful time! I do recommend it for something unique and different.
First time visiting House of Cards. We weren’t quite sure what to expect but it was a good night. Good food and drinks. The magic show was a bit different than expected, but not bad. Overall a great date night.
It was an awesome experience.... one dinner the kids will remember for years to come. Entertainment for every family member! Family Night only on Sunday Nights FYI
Thank you for your kind words! We are so glad you and your family enjoyed your dining experience with us.
Food was exquisite. Setting was spectacular. Magic at the table and at the show after dinner was brilliant. The best dining experience I have ever had. Get a reservation and do not miss this place!
Good atmosphere for date night. My husband got ribeye and I got pork chop, both were tough. Expected more given the price. The magic tricks were uniquely interesting and enjoyable.
Thank you for your feedback. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the magic performances! We apologize that your meal did not meet expectations. We will pass your feedback along to our managers, and will use your comments to make us better.
This was possibly the best dining experience I have ever had in my life. The food was perfect, amazing flavors recommended by our attentive waiter whose name I do not recall, but he wore clear glasses. The filet mignon was perfectly cooked and my friend loved her vegan option mushroom steak. The magic tricks were not only entertaining and mind-blowing but had my friends and I laughing out loud and the show after was amazing. Loved the ambience, loved dressing up and how the other guests looked. My kind of place for sure. The manager, Joey is running a wonderful restaurant and personally spoke with each table twice. I would HIGHLY recommend this place for a completely unique luxury dining experience.
This review made our day! Thank you so much for sharing your positive experience. We will be sure to pass along your compliments to our team.
Fantastic food, service, entertainment, and ambiance! Unlike anything we've every experienced! We will definitely be back again.
Thank you for this glowing review Samantha! We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Took my wife out for her birthday and it was an AWESOME experience. Amy, our server was very thorough and prompt. She was excellent. Food was delivered to out table fast, and was delicious!! Outside patio to smoke was intimate and relaxing. Magic show was very entertaining. This was out first time and it won’t be the last!!
Hi Christopher, thank you for celebrating with us! We are so glad you had a magical experience and we will be sure to pass along your compliments to our team.
Our server Ryan and General Manager Joe accommodated our party nicely.
This was my most favorite experience in Nashville!! Very pricey but you pay for the quality, service and experience. It was worth it in my book!
Amazing food and a unique experience, an absolute must try if in Nashville.
Mother/Daughter weekend kick off
What a fun way to celebrate a mother/daughter weekend! Thanks for joining us.
Loved this! We had such a great time! Went for my boyfriends birthday and the food was delicious
Hi Kayla, thanks for celebrating with us!
Pricey but worth it. Awesome experience
Thank you for your feedback!
The experience was one of a kind and that’s why I always choose to take my guests there when they are in town. I just wish the food was as magical as the magicians.
SO AMAZING!!!! Such a unique experience. Our server,
Thank you for the compliments!
Ryan, our server, was a rock star! The magic show was the best one I’ve seen there out of the several times we have visited house of cards.
Hi Kimberly, thanks for being a regular! We are so glad you enjoyed your experience with us and we will be sure to pass along your compliments to our team.
It was definitely pricey! It was worth every bit, just have to tell yourself you would spend that much for dinner and theater. The magic was incredible and I’m still wondering...how the heck did they do that? Hopefully the shows change every few months because I would love to do it again.
Thank you for sharing your experience! We hope to welcome you back in the future.
Awesome time - loved the table magic and the show.
Thank you for your compliments Kenneth!
Pricy for just better than average food! Very interesting decor and ambiance! Add value for the entertainment factor, making entire experience a fair value!
Thank you for your feedback Don!
It was an amazing experience. The food is ok, but the service and magicians were definitely worth it.
Thank you for your feedback Karen!
Food was good but wine by the glass was very limited in selection. Enjoyed the magic show very much.
Thank you for your feedback!
I’ve been twice. Thought it might not be as good as first experience. But actually was better. Didn’t have as many magic tables to go to but was actually nice to have them come to our table. Was kind of hard to catch a table open before. Shadow was amazing.
Hi Lisa, thanks for joining us again! We are so glad you had a magical night.
Great people that worked there, great food, great experience.
The only downsides - 1) I wish I knew to bring cash ahead of time, 2) the food was a little pricey, and 3) the main magic act was good but the guy was kind of a #%€!
We were out of town from Oklahoma celebrating my best friends 38th birthday. We really loved everything about House of Cards. Our only complaint was the food. Most of it was delicious. 2 out of the 3 of us ordered the ribeye. My friend had ordered hers medium rare and it came out done. And we both thought the steak was tough and not as flavorful as we had hoped. We were very let down because our wonderful waiter had hyped up their beef. But we both thought it was just mediocre. The drinks and wine were lovely. Our appetizer was very good as was the lemon cake they brought my friend for her birthday. It was a very unique and fun experience.
Hi Jessica, thank you for your feedback! We apologize for the temperature error with your friend's ribeye, and your disappointment with the steaks. However, we're glad to hear you enjoyed your overall experience! Thank you for your comments - we will use your feedback to make us better.
The ambience and mystery are fun. The food is good and beautifully presented. And the magic show was so fun. We talked about it the rest of the evening!
Thank you for joining us! We are so glad you enjoyed your dining experience.
This restaurant was so cool! The decor was amazing. It was a lot of fun. The food is very expensive, and it was just ok food. We had steak, and they were good, but nothing spectacular. We got fries and duck fat potatoes, and they were really good. The dessert was amazing!
Hi Marci, thank you for your feedback!
We had dinner at HOC on our wedding night. We eloped to Nashville and were looking for something memorable since it was just the two of us. HOC did not dissappoint. It was such a special, magical night that we will always remember. From our hostess, to our waiter and even the magician. Everything was awesome and we have not quit talking about it to everyone.Thank you!
