The Magic Castle, Los Angeles Reviews

  • I have been to The Magic Castle about 3 or 4 times and each time is special. It is important to note that The Magic Castle is a private club and you must be invited by a member to enter. In general, a member gives you a card with your name on the front and their name and membership number on the back. You call The Magic Castle and make an appointment for brunch or dinner show. There are 3 sets of fees: 1) entrance, 2) valet and 3) brunch/dinner which if you are not inexpensive. Check the website for the most up-to-date fees. We took the family and friends and enjoyed a Saturday afternoon at The Magic Castle. I recommend arriving about an hour or so before your appointed meal time and catch several of the smaller shows. I especially like the Close Up Room, which is to your immediate left as you walk thru the door. Typically the Close Up Room features younger magicians displaying their skills.

  • My 4 stars represents the whole experience. Entertainment /talent - 6 Stars! Food and food service 1 star, sorry. For the prices we paid, I expected above Ruth Chris results, and didn't get Red Lobster. Scallops shouldn't be chewy. The salmon was dry. I'm from south Louisiana, I KNOW good seafood when I taste it. I also had a note on my invite and confirmed with reservations host that ONE entree was required, but could be shared. When we ordered the waiter said both me and my husband needed to order an entree. We chose not to say anything then, because we didn't want to make a scene. This part of the experience felt forced upon, and not something I'd want to do again. Best of luck to the talented magicians we saw, you all were FANTASTIC!!

  • I had lobster for the first time here and I had no idea what to expect or what to compare it to, but I really enjoyed the meal. Seemed a little small for what it cost, but what do I know about lobster anyway lol. The shows were all very entertaining (I recommend waiting for as many shows as you can and not being distracted by the shows going on elsewhere! - nothing against them, just the shows inside the theaters are magnificent) Also, the most important thing to know here, I had with out single doubt in my mind the best cup of coffee in my entire life here. I’ve been trying to find my way back just for the coffee ever since.

  • I have been twice to the magic castle with my mom😍 we loved both times, we went for Sunday brunch. Yummy😋 we loved the magic shows, the tricks and everything❤ we plan on going back next year. It's very exciting, I can't wait to go back.

  • Hugely entertaining, delicious food, friendly service, but pricey! I went with a sizeable group of family and friends (12 of us) and we all had a blast! My sister and I arrived early and were stunned when one of the magicians offered us a free private tour which lasted nearly an hour. We ran into another friendly magician who gave the two of us an impromptu short magic show! Even more stunning: my friends and I got into *every single show* that we attempted to see, even on a Friday night :o. I didn't have high hopes for dinner (captive audience and all, not to mention an entree purchase is required of most visitors!), but my beef wellington was *outstanding*. The meat was well-seasoned and super tender. Wish I could say the same for my friend's prime rib, which was pretty flavorless and was initially brought out to her practically raw :\. Luckily, our server was delightful and insisted on making things right. I can't comment on the drinks or desserts (didn't have any). The shows themselves were a ton of fun, one overly-hammy performer notwithstanding. I was in awe practically the whole time (those birds... how on earth?!). Aside from (and more important than) the prime rib, my only quibble is the lack of accessibility of the place. My friend on crutches had quite a hard time, and given that most of the evening was first-come-first-serve, it was a bit stressful for her making it on time to get an aisle seat for shows :(.
