When we first arrived, we stood in line to get into the BB King section because the other entrance was closed. This line took a long time. We were, therefore, late for our reservation, but the restaurant was very accommodating! The singer/piano player was lovely. The food was outstanding. We did not see our waiter very often, though. When leaving, the music in the BB Kong section was so loud we had to hold our ears. Unfortunate that is the only way to exit. Overall, an excellent trip.

I took a colleague to IB for his birthday. He was impressed with the service, the awesome live entertainment, and the senior manager who took the time to come greet him and personally hand him a birthday cheesecake. I’ve been to IB before, so I knew what to expect and i’m glad IB pulled through again. My colleague said he’s definitely going back!

The food didn’t live up to the price, we have had better for a better price. The service was great and the ambiance was great too, they just need to work on the quality of the steak and special dishes they offer, to justify the price.

Was there for brunch. Ambiance was great. Service was good, food was good.

Had fish & grits... 2 pieces of fish would have been nice instead of 1. The deviled eggs were a bit “loose” and too “mustardy”. Definitely had better deviled eggs. Buttermilk waffle was good.

We had a great meal. The lighting the atmosphere the live singer were all great

We had the signature cocktails and split the IttaBena salad, jambalaya pasta and crème brûlée If you don’t want huge portions and taking half of your meal home in a paper bag, that will be enough

Jasmine was a great server and helped us make good choices

Thank you so much!

We had been here before (a little over a month ago) and I left a negative review regarding the steak and horrible service. They called me pretty immediately, apologized and asked for another chance. I can say that they totally made it right with our return. Chris provided great service, the food was good and hot and a few staff members and managers stopped by periodically throughout the night to make sure all was well. I guess everyone has off nights, but I'm glad we gave it another shot. We will be back!

Made a reservation for 8:30. We arrived at 8:20 and was told it would be 15-20 minutes for our table even though there were plenty of tables open. We went to the bar and ordered a drink and waited. about 40 minutes later we ordered another drink and at that moment we were notified our table was finally ready and said they our server would bring our drink to our table and transfer tab as well. Server took about 5 minutes to get to our table served water and said bread was on it's way(it never came). The server went missing for about 15 minutes and finally showed up to take our order. I asked about our drinks from the bar and he had no idea what I was talking about. He took our orders and left.

I'm just going to stop writing. We were there for almost 3 hours and when we finally got our filets they were well done when we ordered one medium rare and one medium, The baked potato was barely room temperature.

They ended up comping us the entire bill and blamed the entire experience on low staffing. No excuse for a restaurant of that caliber.

They were out of filets, and we have no regrets! Instead of the repeated filet order, we had lamb chops and rib-eye entrees. Both were perfectly cooked to our requested temperature. The meats and the roasted vegetables were wonderfully seasoned, and the risotto was heavenly. Service was the best we've had anywhere, and we will definitely be back again soon!! :-))

I ordered the 16oz ribeye. It definitely was not 16 oz. The seasoning on steak and vegetables was way too salty even after I ask for little or no seasoning. The vegetables were undercooked.

Was on a date so the ambiance was really nice and the addition, or the ability I should say, of being able to close the curtains in front of our table was pretty nice. The jambalaya was GREAT and our waitress was very sweet.

Itta Bena never disappoints. Had my first Brunch there and it was outstanding. Tiffany, our server was very knowledgeable , efficient and a delight. Great job! Food was fabulous as always. The Bloody Mary was one of the best I have had in Montgomery. Itta Bena Brunch burger for something different was mouthwatering. Thank you again!

Overall good experience as my wife and I celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary. Their staff acknowledged our anniversary with choice of either complimentary champagne or splitting a delicious dessert. We opted for the dessert and were not disappointed. Will definitely go back and not wait for another anniversary as a reason.

We had a wonderful time at Itta Bena this evening thanks to our lovely waitress, Tiffany. She was attentive to our needs and helped me decide on my choice for dinner. I had overlooked it and am so grateful she pointed it out, it was absolutely delicious. We all greatly enjoyed our meals. No to-go boxes were needed as we all cleaned our plates. The ambiance and live piano were so pleasant. I definitely recommend this restaurant for a nice evening out. Ask for Tiffany as your waitress!

We had been there a couple of times before with really good food and service. This time was the very opposite. My husband and I ordered the crab cake as appetizer and it was good. It was unfortunately downhill from there. I ordered a m/w ribeye and he ordered a m/w porkchop. The ribeye and porkchop were beyond welldone, mashed potatoes were cold and "roasted" veggies had no flavor and were definitely not roasted. I told our waiter that my steak was overcooked and a "manager" came over and asked me if I "wanted to order medium instead because it continues to cook after it comes out...but it was still juicy". I was shocked that he had the nerve. I order ribeyes a lot and I have never seen or heard such. Anyway, they cooked it again and I waited at least 30 mins for it. The temperature was fine, but it had no flavor. So, between the ridiculousness of the manager, the lack of seasoning, and other issues I was just ready to go. I was offered another drink and declined. Finally, another manager came out that was working there temporarily from another location. She appropriately apologized and removed the steak from our ticket. If a restaurant claims to be "fine dining" you expect to get what you pay for...good food and great service. Unfortunately, we did not have a positive experience and won't be back.

Atmosphere was great..it was Valentine’s Day. Wish it was more selections of food..even though they had a specific Valentine’s Day menu. The waitress was not like the others..she was not real talkative and seemed unhappy. She did not wish us a happy Valentine’s Day like the other’s. But I loved the vibe of the place... music was on point..

Some of the food was cold. Told server and she gladly brought hot vegetables out. I’m really not sure if the Chicken Marsala sauce was fresh or not. I threw everything back up ☹️
