Fantastic food and service - always!
I had a wonderful time. The food was delicious and so were the drinks. I will definitely be back!
Great local gem highly recommend
Very nice place, they have a low not loud person playing the piano ,very good prices, but the food portions are kind of small
Very quiet, different atmosphere compared to the rest of Beale Street. Nice ambience, and our server was very helpful and on point. Cocktails were delicious, using local spirits. The food was really good and came out in a timely manner. Would come back here again.
Nice environment for a date. Close to many bars on Beale. Mac and cheese was bland but Brussels sprouts weee great! Cajun Pasta was good !
Anniversary 37 years! They put
Just staying the night in Memphis on Beale, and we had a birthday dinner here. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent.
We were recently in Memphis for a COVID-19 break. We dined at Itta Benna on our last night there. It's a very interesting space above BB King's blues club. The restaurant has a cool vibe. The service was excellent, as I might add it was everywhere we dined in Memphis. The avocado and crab appetizer was unusual and very good. Our teenager proclaimed the seafood pasta to be the best she had ever had and we are from New Orleans. The scallop and grits appetizer was excellent. The scallops were perfectly cooked and the grits were creamy and flavorful. The BBQ shrimp appetizer with the Abita bread was also excellent and, again, we are from New Orleans, so that's saying a lot. We loved the Abita bread! Our experience at Itta Benna was a very good one and we recommend it.
Great restaurant! Our waitress was outstanding and took great care of us. Definitely recommend them.
A gem on Beale Street! If you're looking for a well-crafted cocktail or two (or three) this is the place!! Unlike the sugary bull$&*% in most establishments along the famed street, these cocktails are top notch, precisely concocted and well-balanced. On top of that we had attentive service and great food! Go here! You won't be disappointed. It's also kind of a neat experience since you have to "find" the secret entrance through a side stairway in B.B. King's Blues Club - a bit of mystery thrown in to sweeten your evening. BTW.... go downstairs to B.B. King's after eating at Itta Bena for a little nightcap and live music!!
Server was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. We never had to ask for anything. I really liked that the manager came by and checked on us about halfway through eating. 10/10 recommended!
We loved it. Food was amazing. Vibe was great. Can't wait to go back
This was definitely a great place to dine. We went o dinner for our anniversary, and it was nice. Although located above BB Kings, the live musician kept it nice and mellow. Our server pulled out all the stops, and it just made our night We look forward to dining with them again.
My wife and I don’t get out much due to work and kids, but when we do we go to a different restaurant every time. Out of all of the different places we have been to this was by far the best. The food was amazing the drinks were stout and it wasn’t extremely pricey. The wife and I both agreed we will go back!!!!
We had a great time and the atmosphere was delightful.
Food and drinks were great. Chris provided us with a great dining experience as always. Thanks for everything!
For all the positive reviews we were disappointed in The braised beef shortrib and Cajun pasta. Very disappointed and we were the only guests eating so good should have been fresh. Waiter Joe was very nice. The room is a definite all blue color a little distracting. Wanted to love it, but couldn’t. Went back down stairs to BBKing club and had a blast.
Our waitress was outstanding. I forgot her name but she has been there 11 years and went to nursing school for 3 years. Ask for her. She GREAT! Management is great also.
Ambiance, service, and staff were all excellent. The food options were limited and lacked seasoning. The food came out quickly, however, portions were very small for price point. I do recommend the Cajun pasta but do not go hungry bc you will need to order multiple dishes. It was almost like the main order was a small tasting plate. Probably would not go back based on food taste/portion.
Great food in an awesome atmosphere with music in the background.
Excellent Service and Good Quality Food.
Everyone seemed to enjoy their dish.
Food was delicious and the atmosphere was great for a date. There was a small band playing some blue music near the bar which added to the ambiance, and the food was delicious (had a filet and sea bass). All of the wait staff was wearing masks and gloves.
