Wow, what a delightful evening!... We were entertained by at least a half-dozen close-up magicians who sequentially came to our table between courses and just knocked our eyeballs out with delightful miracle after miracle... These top-notch performers were fun and funny and talented beyond belief......More

Who doesn’t like magic? This show was so much fun. The magicians are doing what they love and that comes through. Enjoyed all 4 magicians performing for us tableside, each one outstanding and with a different style.

Personal magicians come to your table and dazzle you with magic. Even up and close we couldn't work out how the tricks were done. Meal was very good and was good for my teenage boys who didn't want to go to a musical.
