The overall experience was very nice. The ambiance and setting were gorgeous. My only issues are these.

1.) Our waitress was incredibly nice. However, she only stopped by three times when there were only 2 other couples in the entire restaurant. Once for delivering water (order was taken in the same trip) a check up, where we had to ask her for refills on our drink, and after being done with our meal, we waited approximately 25 minutes for the check.

2.) the food was decent. However for our meals portion and quality, $28 was a bit much. One of us got the jambalaya pasta, which was good, but it was not amazing. And herb encrusted chicken, which consisted of a chicken drum stick, and maybe a thigh with sides. The rolls were simple sister Schubert rolls that you can buy from Walmart, and for $60 of food, I just expected the meals to be better than it was.

Other than that the experience was great and I would still return.

My experience at Itta Bena was impeccable. The staff was so energetic and welcoming in which I haven’t experienced in a long time. The drinks were food and drinks were delicious. The ambiance and music was so pleasant. They were so generous and gave a beautiful gift upon leaving 🥰. I almost didn’t want to leave. I appreciated how everyone appeared to have enjoyed their job.

The restaurant itself is a bit difficult to find, the elevator that goes direct is actually inside another restaurant (go inside BB King's all the way to the back corner; there's also a door entering from the game floor but it's blocked right now for some reason). If you mistakenly take the guest elevator (3rd flr), there's a small non-descript sign telling you to call for access. Better signage would be nice, since we asked three employees how to find it and got three slightly different sets of directions. Maybe all the flashing lights were too distracting.

The food was good, not spectacular for the price. I had the lamb chops and they were closer to well done, not medium as requested, but still juicy. The risotto was also okay, just needed more seasoning. Hubs had the mushroom pasta which was a huge serving, plenty left for lunch the next day. I ordered a mule and it was served in a glass rather than a copper cup, and it was heavy on the juice for my taste (I like to know when I'm drinking alcohol); price was average for a place tending towards upscale. I ended up getting a glass of wine instead.

The staff was super nice, missed a couple items but overall no issues with service.

Nice spot for a date night, ambiance was great for an intimate dinner. Not sure if it's the closest thing you'll get to fine-dining in Montgomery, but maybe.

If you go, recommend choosing a lesser priced meal (the $22 plate was tastier than the $40 plate) and have a glass of wine or beer.

The restaurant is beautiful the staff is great amazing our server went above and beyond. The food to me is over priced and very bland no seasoning at all for our food maybe everyone else was different idk but our food was bland and had no seasoning we had to ask for salt and cheese to help improve our meal. The drinks lord have mercy truly amazing the absolute best lemon drop in Alabama if anything is go back just for the drinks and the service. On another note maybe it’s just me but I feel it’s highly inappropriate to have a guest in the Dining room that has on a jacket and no shirt I understand that it’s a come as you are policy but I feel that’s highly unacceptable for an establishment of your caliber.

The restaurant was so beautiful! I loved the live musician and the ability to close off our dining area using a privacy curtain. It was PERFECT for a date. Our waitress, Carleesha, was very attentive and helpful. The food and drinks were just ok, but I would definitely go again just for the ambiance.

I'd been wanting to visit since the opening, my birthday seemed the right pick for dinner.
I did not find anything special about the place: service like others - slow. Food not special - just ordinary.
Was not impressed. I can now say I have been to BB King's.

My husband and I had reservations at BB Kings but arrived at the casino early and were walking around and stumbled on Itta Bena. It’s not easy to find. We actually thought they were closed but, glad we walked up the stairs to the restaurant. We sat at the bar to have a cocktail and really enjoyed the lady who was singing. We decided to stay for dinner and we are glad we did. We had the duck egg roll to start. They were excellent. I had the mushroom pasta my husband had the jambalaya. Both were excellent. The wine list is good and pricing is reasonable

Service was excellent

Definitely glad we decided to eat here.

It was our 17th anniversary and possibly the best meal and service that we had out on our anniversary.
Now the service from Erin was outside! She was on toustvop of everything, but also didn't bother us when we talking - the perfect waitress! The hostess in restaurant as well as downstairs recognized that I had a problem walking and found a wheelchair that I could use to get back to my truck after dinner our meal!

-Took over an hour to get food
- Food was definitely not worth the money
- The system was down so there were issues paying for dinner
