This was my second time eating here and as usual the food and staff were awesome! 10/10 would recommend.
Super cool experience, me and my wife enjoyed ourselves. The food was super good and the service was great!
Overall positive experience.
First time in Memphis. It’s a wonderful town and there’s many reasons to come back. High on the list is Itta Bena. Our waitress Danielle is a star!
Wonderful experience. Service and food were excellent. Definitely will be back!
Solid place, nice and hidden above Beale street, solid food and wine list...ate there two nights in a row, first night service was iffy, second night big improvement
I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Our server was excellent and the food was wonderful as well. We will be back!
Everything was really good. Food was excellent and our server was great. The only problem we had was when the manager brought us our dessert. He walked up to the table, barely missing a beat and slammed our creme brulee down on the table as he walked away saying simply "creme brulee. It was very abrupt and rude. Not sure if he has a problem with gay couples or was just having a bad night but the guy needs an attitude adjustment. Especially coming from the manager.
The food was delicious, the service was amazing. The only small thing I could complain about was the seating, there was a divider between my table and the other table, but it wasn’t a closed divider so I felt like I was sitting with the two gentlemen at the table and one of them talked extremely loud the entire time. I would go back but hope for a better seat where I can actually enjoy the food and the company I came with.
Great service, great food, great time. We will become regulars
Wonderful dinner, service was excellent. Only drawback was we would have liked to have been able to go down to the club after dinner but were told there was a waiting line for the tables. Understandable but, you would think they could figure out a way to accommodate the upstairs guests, with at least a bar top and some stools maybe? I don’t know.
The service was outstanding. This was our first visit to the restaurant to celebrate a friends birthday. The food was outstanding. My husband and I will be coming on our anniversary in October. The piano player was great but the music from below at BB Kings did provide a slight distraction in the restaurant. Overall out experience was excellent.
Jocelyn was an amazing server. She was knowledgeable and extremely professional.
Itta Bena never disappoints! The food is always amazing and delicious. Service is great! And the atmosphere is so cool. Our favorite spot in Memphis
Jocelyn was amazing! We loved our meal for my brothers birthday.
Fantastic! Stephan was our Server. Absolutely awesome. Would certainly go back next time I'm in Memphis.
Visitors in from Chicago
Service was excellent! Food was delicious, but not memorable. Starter (creamy mushroom soup) and side dish (creamed spinach) were the favorites of the meal. Would return just for those. Entrees were on par, but just that.
A hidden gem. Beautiful place. Great lighting and decor. Great vibe. Piano and guitar players. Nice touch. Great martini and a Reisling. Had big salads to start. 16 oz ribeye and halibut to follow. Perfectly cooked. Finished with a Godiva liqueur cheesecake. Fantastic way to finish the meal. McKenna our waitress was wonderful. The manager cane by to ask about our meal. Nice touch again. A must if you are in Memphis.
The hostess took us to a table in the very middle of the room. When I told her it was our anniversary, she quickly took us to a very secluded table. We appreciated her kindness and helping us to enjoy a more intimate evening. The server was helpful and suggested several items. He brought complimentary champagne for our celebration. The food was delicious and priced well. We enjoyed a great meal without breaking the bank. We will definitely be back!
Itta Bena is Memphis best kept secret to me. It’s at the top of BB King Club and now the GM is Matt from Flight Restaurant. The service was great and the food was excellent.
We enjoy our experience each and every time. 3rd time there and never disappointed.
Can't wait for the next visit.
I am always surprised at the availability each time I make a reservation. This place is so unique and the food is outstanding. I truly enjoyed the She Crab soup, and my aunt ordered the grits and Crab Stuffed Avocado. It's the perfect place to come before a show at The Orpheum.
Food was so tasty and cocktails were yummy! It wasn’t inexpensive by any means, but this is a great place for a special occasion or a date night.
Outstanding service and food!
The food was good and the service was excellent.
The meal and service were flawless
Very slow to be seated , even though we had a reservation. Service was slow, as well. Halibut was severely over cooked. Probably will not be bringing clients back, much less ourselves.
This is an excellent restaurant. My wife and I live in Farmington, MO and when we were in town we had to go to this restaurant. Last time we were in Memphis we came here and had a fabulous experience.
Great in every way. We plan to come again!
Everything was outstanding! Our server Stefan was attentive helpful with selections and let our party take time to talk and get reacquainted. Drinks and appetizers were tasty I especially enjoyed the pimiento cheese offering. Everyone had a feliet except one who enjoyed the Cajun pasta. We all shared the sides of mashed potatoes, Brussels sprouts and parmasian French fries. I only wish there had been more of a seasonal selection for the vegetable sides and also the cobbler desert. I did have the cobbler for desert and speculated it would be peach but it was blueberry which was fine but again something more seasonal would have been nice. One complaint I had but. Did not voice is my coffee cup was soiled and the coffee was not very good. Overall however we had a favorable experience and will definitely return!
Awesome! Cant wait to go back!
Absolutely a must when in Memphis. Very nice selection of wine and beer and a variety of seafood and beef. Request a table by the window to people watch on Beale Street..
Food was outstanding from start to finish. Our server was excellent. She was engaging and very helpful. She helped make a great food/atmosphere experience even better.
Small menu, but great food and service. Very nice martini too. Funky, fun location above BB Kings overlooking Beale Street.
I definitely recommend the lamb chops. The food was really good and the service was great!
Always a treat!
Food was very good; we had the halibut and it was very good and cooked just perfect. The wait staff was excellent and looked like a fashion model without the attitude. She was very friendly and did every thing possible to see we were well cared for. Excellent meal, service and ambiance.
I was in Memphis on business and fortuitously attended this outstanding restaurant. Ashley, our server, was great. The food, which was unique from what I’m used to, was great. Plus it was right above BB King and in a prime locale on Beale St.
