We were there for dinner and the shows and it was a magical evening. With dinner and drinks for 4 it was well over $500. The staff was amazing and the shows were fun and entertaining. All in all it was worth it but just go in knowing that you definitely pay for the experience of old hollywood.

This is a club for magicians, but on every Sunday they offer a buffet followed by up to three magic performances. The performances are focused on having children through adults enjoy themselves. The buffet is good and reasonably priced.

I can't even begin to explain how amazing the Magic Castle is! It transports you to another time where there are no cell phones ( no pics/video allowed AT ALL in the castle) and slight of hand magic is the main feature! The castle is made of many rooms and theaters that have mini-shows with various magician members of the... More

We did the family brunch followed by the 13:30 magus show - what a great way to spend a Sunday in LA. Efficient staff, world class venue and if you like a buffet that was superb. The magic show was worth the short wait and the audience was such a pleasant group to be with. Adding the Magic Castle to... More

We had a wonderful and delicious dinner, then the main stage magic show. It was the week for new, young talent. They were very good and fun to watch. Some of the other extra shows were also entertaining. This is a must do.

This was a great Saturday morning brunch with excellent service. The selection was large and the mimosas were delicious. It set the mood for the great day to come.

If you are invited to go here for magic, and can get a reservation for dinner...say yes. This place was great. Expensive, but fantastic. The beef Wellington, lamb chops, scallops, and short rib all were cooked perfectly and everyone was full. This is part of the magic and it deserves high praise.

We eat a full meal each time we go. The trick is to start early, so you do not miss the shows. Everyone who eats in main dining gets a reserved ticket to the Main show. Very important. We order everything, filet mignon, lobster, mac and cheese, shrimp cocktail. All Good. Drinks are small
