We had the BEST experience. The staff was super attentive and sensitive to our special needs.
I truly enjoyed eating out with my classmate. We had an awesome time and our waitress was MAGNIFICENT! Can’t remember her name but I was there 7/22/21 with a 5:15 reservation. I will definitely come back and will request her if I remember the name. Food was EXCELLENT!!
We enjoyed our dinner. The appetizer, entree and wine was perfect. The menu had a nice compliment of many choices and no reason you can’t find what you desire. We loved,
Loved the pork belly appetizer. Service was good and no issues. Can’t wait to go back !!
Very intimate setting...a whole vibe! Food was everything and more!!
The ambience is good, but the food was average. We ordered the Duck Spring Rolls only to be told, after our order was submitted, that they were out of duck. (Something the wait staff should be told about before service begins.).
In lieu of the springs rolls, I ordered the chicken lettuce wraps. The chicken, however, was prepared in chunks which made preparing the wraps difficult. A better chicken preparation would have been to use ground chicken.
The entrees were ample sizes, but the Shoyu Salmon and Catch of the Day entrees we ordered were too salty.
It’s doubtful we’ll return to this restaurant.
Inedible!!!! Someone, please tell me what I was served at dinner tonight? I need to be able to tell my doctor! I find it sad to have such an amazing dining venue yet, serve such horrible food!! I ordered the steak medium yet, it was tough as a nail, collards burned, corn soupy🥲. I am a “foodie”. I travel just eat. I expect an edible meal, even if it’s not my favorite.
I want to have a sit down with the owner of this establishment. I find it criminal to pay $60 for an inedible meal🤦🏽♀️
Exceptional experience 😎
The customer service was A1 which is always a +…. Next, I must say I enjoyed it overall & so did my husband, from the pianist, the food, & the lighting omg it was everything we needed to ensure an elegant let alone romantic night. We will be back soon !!
Food was great. Piano music was awesome. Person in next booth talked on speaker phone for entire meal. Restaurant is nice but having to go through loud lounge downstairs is a little disconcerting.
This place was vey fancy and the crab soup and catfish with grits was great!
We enjoyed our date night. Everything was exceptional from the pianist to the great waitress.
Nice, attentive staff.
The restaurant was totally occupied by a huge private party. We were unaware of this when we made reservations. When we arrived we were seated right in the middle of the party group. We felt like we were crashing the party. With such a large party going on the restaurant should have been closed to other guests.
The food choices are very limited. The salad was good. Both of us had steaks. The filet mignon was overcooked and had a burnt taste. The ribeye was dry and tough.
The atmosphere was very nice and surprisingly with such a large party going on it was not too loud.
I visited here July 11 for me and my Husband's Anniversary and I was pretty disappointed with the food. I was trying to get reservations at Central downtown which is always great, but they were booked. So I figured Itta Bena would be the next best thing as I remembered always ordering the she crab soup and crab cakes when I used to frequent the hotel in the casino. Well I ordered the She crab soup and it was not the same it was mediocre, I also ordered the mussels as an appetizer because I love all seafood, I'm from Miami (well the mussels taste like dirty water), finally I ordered a medium Steak with mashed potatoes and veggies... Originally, they brought me a thin burnt on the outside, overcooked grey on the inside ribeye steak(which took forever to cook and they didn' t have any mashed potatoes I had to get grits with it). Needless to say I sent that back... then they brought me a beautiful thick ribeye that looked delicious until I cut into it and it looked like a raw piece of Tuna and my grits were hard and extra thick. I just packed everything up to go by then I was just disgusted. However, I did eat all my veggies they were great. My Husband's food was not good either he ordered the Abita Shrimp appetizer and the Shrimp and Grits entre... The App was okay too much sauce on 3 Large shrimp and the hard lumpy grits with a few mediocre shrimp in a little bit of sauce on the top. It didn't even look appetizing. I am rather disappointed :-(
Wonderful ! Music was great. Our meal was excellent and the waiter was super nice
Ask for Brandon if he’s working Staff was all professional and nice and the food was excellent
Keep up the good work ...! Keep up the good work.!
Great food! Enjoy the atmosphere!
Great Birthday Celebration
I was playing in the casino and decided to treat myself using a food voucher. I had a martini and a delicious pasta dish. The service was great (they weren’t busy). I watched the sunset from my outdoor table, beautiful!
Sanchez is an excellent server!
The cozy, candlelit surroundings are tucked away from the bustling casino below. Music choice is excellent, but does disturb conversation, and blends well with the overall vibe.
The food and cocktails are divine, and they offer a fairly extensive wine list.
If I lived in Montgomery, I would frequent Itta Bena whether I cared for gambling or not. It’s a true gem.
Went with a friend for Sunday brunch. The food & atmosphere were excellent but the service from our waitress was not good. Thankfully the manager i guess on duty picked up her slack plus gave us our 2nd drink on the house. .
It’s such a hidden gem but like everywhere in Montgomery the wait staff struggles.
The food and service were superb. We would highly recommend dining here. The walk through the casino is worth it!
Every thing was great. We had no trouble finding what we wanted to eat!
It was one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in this area !
Great good & wonderful service ! The atmosphere was amazing
So it was mothers at 4 and not busy. Everything seemed to go well but drinks took 20 minutes to get to table. We did not get our food till 1 hr and 20 minites after we arrived and we ordered our food 20 minutes after arriving (well everyone else was getting there food what seemed to be timely.) My steak over cooked, pot pie was way over salted. They did correct this and the rest of the food tasted great. Not sure what happen with the comps but waiter took them but did not credit all of them, which was no big deal but not telling us it did not take it was, we had to ask. That said, waiter was nice and things went well but timing of everything was long and did not leave for about 2 hours and 20 minutes. Only 5 people and two kids( who where not a disruption). Over all good, but with other options for tje price, i will pass next time.
We had several issues with Food and service. We had hour and 1/2 wait for food. And when we did receive food grits were cold, other meal was wrong, other food items were cold. Several other guest in restaurant was experiencing same thing.
I have eaten in some of the finest restaurants in the country and I would rank itta Bena right up there with the best. The ambiance was excellent, the service was outstanding and my lamb chops were cooked to perfection.
The food was great and the girl that waited on us was great.
Great time. Great food. Great service.
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.
Love the ambience. Good food and reasonable price
The brunch was fantastic! We are anxious to try dinner there next!
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!
Absolutely amazing. Brought my mother for her 65th birthday and she is in love ! The service , food, and ambiance was GREAT . We got roses after our meal too !
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.
The bacon was very greasy. Food was not hot.
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!
The ambience and customer service was outstanding!
Our server was so sweet and attentive! The restaurant was so dark that we could barely read the menu. The food was outstanding! Overall it was a great experience and we will be going back again and again!
