Hi Cathy, thank you for your kind feedback!
By far the best dining / entertainment experience ever!!!
That's high praise! Thank you for your compliment.
A wonderful night celebrating a friends birthday. We all tried something different and were delighted with the meal and the entertainment! 10/10!!
Thanks for celebrating with us, Jordan! We appreciate your compliments.
A very enjoyable combination of excellent food, drink and professional magicians. The atmosphere felt privileged and the decor was well done. The menu has many choices - we had steak, pork chop and scallops within our group of four - all very pleased and definitely more fun with friends. The entree portions are nice - the sides are definitely smallish /individual. Wedge salads were good but small. Cocktails were the weakest part of the evening but not bad, and a decent wine selection. A small thing but I was disappointed that there was no bread with the salads / meal...go figure. I wasn't surprised at the prices - the menu is available online and you're basically paying for dinner and the show (~25 min) plus other table magic. With cocktails and wine you can plan on $150-$200pp all-in. Overall, I give it high marks and will plan to return with friends.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, Barry! We appreciate your recommendation.
We were in Nashville for a college hockey tournament. Its our first time herr and we were advised to try HOC and we're glad we did! The service, the food, the atmosphere and the ambiance all add up to an unforgettable experience. Make sure you attend the show! For dinner I had the lamb and my husband had steak both were outstanding. Appetizers steak tatar was excellent. They even sent a nice slice of cake with a candle for his birthday as dessert! House of Cards is more than dinner out. It's a whole experience.

Exquisite!! Food was Michelin Star quality, cocktails were top-notch. Ambience, over the top breathtaking. The magic is mind-blowing. Can’t remember a better time at a restaurant. We will be back!

Wow - once in a lifetime experience for food, service and entertainment!
That's high praise! Thank you, Billy.
Brandon was PHENOMENAL as our waiter. He noticed immediately when my steak came out over cooked. He picked up on cues from our guests immediately. He was funny and friendly. I would give 10 stars if I could! The other staff that waited on us were also top notch. Love the ambiance and visiting the outdoor patio is a MUST. The food…..I cannot say enough. It was delicious. The sea bass was a bit overshadowed by the sweet potato purée, but the fish it’s self was very good. The wagyu steak was like butter. Mac and Cheese was so yummy as was the broccolini. The Brussels were not as crispy as advertised but were good. I highly recommend the bison and the scallops apps! The both were great. I cannot say enough! Thanks to the entire staff for making our special occasion ROCK!
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience! We will be sure to pass your compliments along to our team and we hope to welcome you back again in the future.
Great Place to experience good food and some entertainment. Main show is pretty good, but side magicians seem to take a lot of breaks and want you to dine in first...makes sense....the main show maybe how they turn the tables. Would do it gain.
Hi Mich, we appreciate your feedback and we hope to welcome you back again in the future!
Everyone should try this place - it was the most fun dining experience we’ve had in.. well.. maybe ever! So unique and amazing food.
That's high praise! Thank you so much for this glowing review.
If you are in Nashville, GO! We loved our experience and the staff was so nice and true to the theme of the atmosphere.
Thank you for your recommendation!
Had so much fun! Overall food and drinks were great. Ambience and magic shows were excellent. Only improvement would be the side dishes. As great as the cocktails, appetizers, and main courses were, the sides dishes seemed like an afterthought. Don’t get me wrong, House of Cards it is experience we will never forget.
Thank you for joining us and for your feedback!
We came to Nashville and this restaurant to celebrate my birthday and they did not allow us in because I had on “leggings”. The manager was very disrespectful to me as I was dressed up for me and had on flat shoes and black pants and a dressy shirt and he said I needed to borrow high heels or boots and couldn’t wear leggings. Very disrespectful to me as a woman. Very short sighted to turn down customers and judge people’s version of “dressed up” - they were humiliating us on purpose after we said we didn’t agree with them. This establishment lacks integrity. Got to hotel and Open Table had sent an email that House of Cards reported that I did not show up for my reservation. So disrespectful and untruthful.
Went to HoC for as a gift for my wife's birthday. We both loved it and hope to return soon. The food and drink selection was actually better than I expected (not sure exactly what I expected...), and the space itself was intimate without being cramped. The magicians were fantastic, the staff was helpful and friendly. A great night!
Hi Todd, thank you for choosing to celebrate with us! We are glad you had a magical evening.

Thank you for your recommendation, Rick!
Amazing experience and place! We LOVE it!!!
We are so glad to hear it!
House of cards was an amazing experience. Went for a girls night out. We knew the expense going in, but it was about the entire experience! The manager came up to us after dinner and apologized for not introducing us sooner. Our server Ryan was super helpful and energetic! His recommendations were helpful from drinks to dessert and everything in between. My only complaint was that he didn’t mention the creme brûlée sooner: BEYOND the best creme brûlée I’ve had in a long time!
The atmosphere was an entire experience. The up close magicians were amazing, the show after dinner was interactive too!
Hi Sara, thank you so much for sharing your experience! We will be sure to pass along your compliments to our team.

That's high praise! We appreciate your kind words.
