The seats are way too small, and it doesn't seem like they thought about their demographic when they made the seats. The food was okay....it wasn't worth the price in my opinion, and they kept getting my friends order wrong. The sweet tea, was not great, and had a funny after taste, and I think the decor was modern, but it didn't make me think of the icon Ida B. Wells, even though there were big pics of her, it didn't feel like it captured the essence of her, it was just name after her. I could say more, but I think everyone should try it for themselves. Their experiences may differ from mine. I would not classify it as a Soul food restaurant though, not enough soulful things on the menu.

Go on a Friday or Saturday night for the live music - it’s amazing!! Also, be sure to save room for dessert. The Mississippi Mud Pot de Creme and Brown Sugar Pie are to die for.

My husband and I recently visited Baltimore for the first time from Virginia. This place was definitely one of the highlights. Our server, Angel, was amazing. The food was great, the drinks came out prompt, and the live jazz jam set the perfect mood for our night out. I can't wait to return!

Recently moved to Baltimore from New York and this was my first brunch experience here. I went to Ida B’s for my birthday brunch. It was myself and 6 close friends. The food was amazing! Our server, Angel, was so sweet and provided great service! The ambiance was perfect. Just overall greatness. I’ll definitely be returning! Thank you!

Food, service and live music where great! Only one issue, some of the food choices where quite spicy. Maybe it should be noted on the menu which items are spicy or the wait staff could let the customers know.
