Always good. Never disappoints. Great food. Great atmosphere.
bone in ribeye, ordered medium rare. tough and full of gristle. could barely cut with knife. Filet ordered the same, came med well..also tough. Brussel sprouts dry and brick hard. The crab in the avocado appetizer had a strong fish taste and needed lime or lemon. Crab soup was runny.
We would not have known this restaurant existed without the recommendation from a local. Plus, it’s a hidden gem above BB Kings on Beale Street. It’s also surprising that you couldn’t hear the band downstairs which was beneficial for listening to the saxophonist in the restaurant. It was a wonderful way to wrap up our visit to Memphis with fantastic food, music and ambience!
We had a great time and will definitely revisit . Very relaxing environment.
We were seated against the window and were challenged with the sum shining thru the curtains and could not hear the piano player from where we were sitting due to the volume. Overall easy changes. But can cause a red eye.
I heard about this place through coworkers and friends. I was wanting to try something new for my birthday and wanted an upscale place. The good was absolutely amazing. The service was impeccable. Great menu selections with a fresh take on old favorites. I can’t wait to go back. The place was packed if that says anything!
Our server, Jocelyn, was amazing! It was a great place to bring my husband for his birthday...lovely, intimate, and terrific food.
Lovely waitress and great food. Best Old Fashion I’ve ever had
We were not expecting two long flights of stairs. Historical building precludes elevator. Food and service was worth it.
Lack of signage made it an adventure.
Really nice ambiance and live music with a superbly prepared and plated meal
Wonderful service and incredible food. We were celebrating my birthday and they really go above and beyond to make it a special experience. Highly recommend.
From another city. Just wanted to try something that wasn’t at home. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t something to write home about.
Great food, service and ambiance in a unique setting. A hidden gem above BB King’s Blues Club.
I loved it. Food was delish and the music was great. My husband and I will be back for sure. We were there for our 23rd wedding anniversary. I had no idea that they have a little private room too. Mental note for the next time.
Maybe the best service I have ever had in a restaurant and the food was amazing
Great food, great service. Would highly recommend.
Recommended. Food was very good, fun setting above B.B.Kings. Soft tenor saxophone music playing made the evening that much more enjoyable. This evening I had ordered my Filet prepared "medium" and it was really served "medium well", however everything else was perfect. This is the only reason I did not award the 5th star. (I expect a restaurant at this price point to be able to prepare a steak to order.)
As I shared in the beginning, I definitely recommend This restaurant.
My boyfriend and I love trying out new places here in Memphis. Especially experiencing new cuisine, but lately haven’t been impressed with the service/food we’ve been paying for. Itta Bena changed the game for us. From the time we arrived to the time we left was perfect. Victoria was our server, knowledgeable and accommodating. Itta Bena you are gem and we will be back sooner than later!
Outstanding service, food and atmosphere.
A superb dining experience. Great location on Beale Street above BB Kings. Fabulous appetizers, salads, and entrees. Our server was very helpful with menu recommendations. We loved the Crab Stuffed Avocado and Shrimp and Grits. Unique and original recipes.
Absolutely wonderful! Perhaps our best dining experience - ever. Beautiful restaurant that gives you a view of Bielle Street without being “in” it. Very interesting menu. Shrimp and grits and lamp chops were to die for. Fantastic service. The restaurant was busy with three very large groups but we were still well served throughout the evening. We picked three Memphis restaurants to visit. This was hands down our favorite.
Food was very good, service from A. was excellent. She was attentive, friendly, informative and made the evening enjoyable.
I celebrated my birthday here and was very pleased! I have no complaints! I will definitely put this on my list when I visit Memphis again!
A wonderful dining experience. The somewhat secret entrance gave it a very speakeasy feel. We were really surprised to see that it was all white tablecloth and wine goblets, but although we were in our tourist clothing we were still welcomed. They easily will modify any menu item – I did not want pasta so I was offered to substitute with any vegetable that I wished and as it turns out, creamed spinach is fantastic with what would otherwise be Cajun pasta! The manager topped off our evening with a tiny snifter of the most marvelous pecan liqueur. A quiet evening, delicious food, lovely setting. Recommend for couples and friends and business.
Service was impeccable and food was delicious! Gluten free options were satisfying.
Nice place, away from the loud music joints (with a piano player, who was very good). You have to ask inside BB King’s where to go, but once you find this place, it’s a gem! The food was excellent and the noise of the street is pretty much blocked out. Nice place for a special occasion, also.
Great spot before any show at the Orpheum.
Fabulous food. Very nice environment and terrific service. My new favorite restaurant!
3rd floor surprise over B. B. King’s! Service was outstanding and food was very good. Best meal I’ve had on Beale Street.
Fantastic vibe and fun people watching. Food was good, but took over an hour to get to us after ordering. Didn't really matter as we were enjoying the drinks, but the kitchen got behind with a large (unexpected) party. Would have been nice to have them offer something to compensate for it.
Great hidden place with wonderful food and service! Halibut was fantastic! We always eat here when we’re in Memphis and have never been disappointed.
Le gérant Christophe parle français un plus ,très agréable,bonne nourriture raffinée ,bonne carte de vin ,service excellent ,mais un peu cher !
Je le recommande
Serge et Suzanne de Montréal
It was a fantastic atmo
Fabulous. Randy was an excellent server too!
We loved our girl Jocelyn(sp???) She was the BEST!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you again!
Phenomenal food and service. It’s pricey but worth it. The noise from the Club downstairs is a little noticeable but doesn’t detract from the dining experience.
We made our reservation a week in advance noting our anniversary. When we arrived the hostess wished us a Happy Anniversary and took us to a private little room with cushy seat and pillows lining the wall. The service was outstanding and the food was fabulous. I only wish that we could hear the piano, sax and singer better. I would highly recommend for a memorable and flavorful evening.
I got the shrimp and grits and it was so good. My fiancé got the Cajun pasta and it was just ok, and over priced!!! The service was amazing and the location was amazing!!
Great experience as always. It is a pleasure to go to a restraurant that has consistently great food and service and the new menu is great
