Hey guys,

I went to the Magic Castle tonight for the first time and earlier this evening, I read the previous comments on their food. I wanted to add a review for future guests at Magic Castle. Obviously, one is going to the Magic Castle for the magic, not the food. Since my husband's company had made dinner reservations, we ate there. It really wasn't as bad as I expected. I ordered the filet mignon and it was tender and perfectly cooked. It definitely wasn't the best I ever had, but better than a chain restaurant, which was good. The mashed potatoes were mushy, but I have very high standards from my Irish mother and grandmother...The chocolate cake was pretty dreadful...I think it may have been frozen?? I should have went with the cheesecake, which my friends liked. The wine list was decent and we ordered a medium priced cabernet from sonoma county, which we all enjoyed.

Otherwise, the drinks were reasonably priced at the bars - $8 for a martini, which isn't bad. The shows were just great and the architecture, decorations, and "ghost" piano bar are priceless. I definitely recommend going to the Magic Castle, if you can. It was wonderful to get dressed up and experience a Hollywood landmark! It isn't necessary to eat there, but if you have to with your reservation/guest pass, the filet mignon was decent...enjoy!
