I felt part of an exclusive club. I loved being fancy and dressed up and walking around to the different rooms. All of the magicians (and guests) were friendly and extremely entertaining. The food was delicious and I was apprehensive because of a few bad...More

The meal was excellent - better than I remember from prior visits over the past 25 years. I started with the Thai curry crab bisque - excellent flavor with a nice kick. My Sea Bass was wonderful, and the steak, salmon, and risotto ordered by...More

We ate dinner here first and the food was excellent. The magic show was good. It feels very claustrophobic inside. Navigating around and trying to get in line to see the different shows of the main stage is a bit too cumbersome

Just love the way they had kept it so exclusive. The shows were great. But just a bit surprise that they don't spend money to hire a better chef. If they put the effort to really offer great food, the place will be pack!!

This is a unique and wonderful place, even if your not a big magic fan. The men must wear a coat and tie and the women dress up too. The meals are very good, but the magic shows are amazing. They have the top magicians...More

Haven't been in years. Pleasantly surprised with how great it was and how much I loved it overall. Magic acts were great. Wellington medium well was actually the best I've had there over the years. I didn't love the chicken - too fatty and rubbery...More

This place is special and an amazing experience for those looking for something unusual. The building itself is unique and filled with magic memorabilia and history. And they put on shows in mostly small rooms that rival the magic you would otherwise have to see...More
