It was a very fun night, the show was cute and we had a great meal. I would highly recommend this for a gift to others (possibly parents, a good friend), loved the ambiance.

We have had season tickets for many years. It's always a treat to come here. Everyone dresses up and the ambiance is first class. We have always enjoyed the food and the performances. Look forward to each and every musical!!!

We have seen about 5 shows at the Candlelight in the past 5 years. Impressive performances including CATS. The food is good. Sometimes there are special shows that do not include the dinner and they cost less. Good place to take out of town company.

We have been going to the Candlelight for years and have never been disappointed. The food and service are excellent, the shows are outstanding and the price is right. With such quality so close at hand, there is no reason to go to LA. I would give the Candlelight 6 stars if I could. If you have never been there,... More

First your table already has your name place card at your seat. They have a dress code, pant suits are acceptable. A little outdated atmosphere but that adds to the old theater charm. I had tri tip with a lovely sauce, very tasty, my friend the mahi-mahi plenty of food. Excellent service. We saw Footloose. EXCELLENT! It was the best... More

Went to see the tribute to the Carpenters on July 21 2016. Great show! Great for couples. There were 4 couples in our group and everyone enjoyed it immensely. The tribute shows are casual and they encourage singing along, dancing in the aisle, etc. If you are a fan of some group or singer and the Candlelight has a tribute... More

We were treated to dinner and a show (Mary Poppins) last night. What a treasure we discovered! Our table was ready and waiting for us and as soon as we were seated our waiter came up and began our service. Between us we tried 3 of the 4 offerings for dinner and all were wonderful. I particularly enjoyed the filet... More

I have been attending the lunch version of the Candlelight Dinner Theatre for at least 16 years and have never been disappointed. The musical show has the best talent and excellent sets and costumes for a smaller venue. The food is always very good (especially the tri tip) and the staff couldn't be more helpful. I usually attend with a... More

This theater inside is very nice. The entrance could use a freshen up, but inside it's great. Hope the actors/singers/dancers have enough room to move around backstage. The performance of this Irish music was wonderful and the acoustics were fantastic. We were singing along.
