Hostess working was not very receptive. We had noted for a booth for our anniversary, and she just sat us at first available. Our waitress noticed the seating request, but was then pulled from us because the booth was in a different servers section. The 2nd server had a shadower following her which made it odd. She didn’t check our table but 3-4 times in the almost 2hr we were there.
Overall the food and atmosphere was very nice.
Great good! Great service! A hidden gem of Montgomery!
The she crab soup was delicious the best I have had. The curtain booth was very nice for our anniversary. Duck spring rolls were great! I was given a white rose for our anniversary—outstanding customer service!!
My wife and I experience was amazing, our waiter was amazing, he built a rapport with us and his accent was like no other.
The experience was simply amazing. This was my first time there. We will definitely be back.
Great food and service! Arin was amazing and the manager even stopped by to ensure everything was good.
Very elegant, peaceful and romantic restaurant. Chose this restaurant for my anniversary and it was the best decision I could’ve made. Highly recommended!
Everything was perfect. Destiny was great! We loved every second of our dinner tonight.
We love going to Itta Bena. We had another great visit. Our server was Octavia she was wonderful, and remembered us from the last time we had been there. She was very attentive and a great server. I recommend her she is top notch! Thanks Octavia. The only issued right now is the limited menu due to COVID. I would like to see more offerings to choose from. The other issue is picky but that’s what a review is for i guess. The bar tender could use a little brushing up on his bar tending skills 3 out of 10. I mean come on with a good martini, that seems like a basic bar tending skill. Second it’s the table bread. The are using dinner rolls and although they are good. I am in the foodservice distribution business and know there are countless options for a great table bread. Thank about up grading or changing that all together. Don’t get me wrong we will be back for sure.
Excellent food and service.
An earlier visit left us disappointed and I shared that experience with the manager. He was kind enough to give us a gift certificate and encouraged us to give them another chance. We returned and were well pleased. Service was great, food was good, even though the menu was quite limited given the pandemic, and our experience was very positive.
Loved the ambience, music and food. Great hidden spot for date night!
Another lovely evening at Itta Bena. Food and service superb. Social distancing and masks practiced by all staff. Cant wait to go back. Thank you again!
Server was super nice. Outside view at sunset was great.
Love the vibe...perfect for a date night or special occasion celebration.
Ribeye was very fatty but good. Service was very good. Over priced.
This was truly a wonderful experience for me and my daughter! Food was delicious, service was great, and host was very inviting and warm!
Dinner was perfect and the atmosphere was even better. Will be back and will recommend others to eat here as well!😃
Our waitress ruined my experience. I don't eat a variety of foods so I had questions and she had an attitude. I asked to change my food because i hated it and she said let me see then finally brought a menu and when I asked what was in it she told me only 2 things and it came with more and I almost sent it back but I ended up just picking through it. There was a limited menu because of Valentines Day. Everything else was awesome! I will be back but she can NEVER wait on me again!
We have lived in Montgomery our entire lives. We had no idea this restaurant existed! Our daughter gave us s gift certificate as a Christmas present. It was a wonderful “date night” for two old folk! Our wait person Christopher was exceptional! He was very knowledgeable, and went beyond and above. We will definitely be back.
I loved it, the pianist in the background was wonderful. The food was EXCELLENT
Server could not give me a description of the dish I was interested in ordering.
Bland Food, not very well executed, uninspired menu. I ordered the Snapper served on top of shrimp & oyster gumbo. The only seasoning in the dish was on the snapper, the remainder of the dish (rice, gumbo) was devoid of any significant flavor.
Server took 25 minutes to serve me a club soda...had already gotten through apps before it arrived
Bread took about 15 minutes to arrive
Might have been nice to know that i needed to walk through a smoke filled casino, then through a speak-easy, to get to the elevator to take you to Itta Bena.
I won't be back.
Excellent dining experience. Wasn't crazy about the music selection for Valentines evening but other than that it was amazing all around!
Yes I would recommend this place. Nice atmosphere.
outstanding service and food We always enjoy our visits to ITTA BENA Montgomery
The service was extremely slow. It took 30 minutes to get our drinks. We didn’t receive our food until an hour and a half after our reservation time.
We celebrated our Anniversary with a large group of friends. The manager was very accommodating to our large group. The service was excellent all evening. The food was delicious and the ambiance was perfect!
Wonderful experience! Went on a Sunday night. Our waiter, Aubrey was outstanding, the she crab soup was superb and the airline chicken cooked to perfection. Also make sure you try the cajun shrimp appetizer, delish! The pianist was an added touch to top off the evening with some smooth jazz. Thank you Itta Bena can't wait to come back.
Didn’t know what to expect, but it turned out to be a wonderful experience
Tonight I had reservations for 8:30
Our first drinks took 20 minutes to come out after ordering. Our appetizer was very late and originally got delivered to the wrong table. My steak tasted great, but my wife’s fish meal did not have squash and zucchini as advertised on the menu. Overall the service was slow. We did enjoy the atmosphere and the Memphis feel.
Celebrating a Birthday
Second time dining there. Each experience was better than the last. All of the staff was great and the waiter was the greatest. Will definitely be returning soon.
Service was great! Our waiter did a good job. The food was served quickly and was very good. I got the salmon which came with a potato hash, which I loved. The drink I got from the bar was also good. My father got the short ribs; he said they were good and tender.
Had a quiet Thanksgiving dinner! Delicious food, wonderful service, love the atmosphere! The booths are PERFECT for a romantic evening! Be sure to request one as a couple!
What a perfect evening for the four of us! The food was OUTSTANDING! The atmosphere was lovely, lots and lots of candles. The acoustic music was perfect. We will be back!
Very good time to go on a Thursday night at 5! Boy the bread was good! Great service! Crab cake yum! Steak a little tough but we are definitely going back!
While the ambiance and live music were enjoyable, their were aspects of the meal that left me unsure about ever returning to or recommending Itta Bena. The menu read ‘Bone In’ 10oz Pork Chop but I received a pork filet (possibly loin) which is a very different cut of meat. I’ve eaten in enough high end streak house’s to know that the kitchen includes the bone with your meal-unless instructed otherwise. So I’m not sure why I did not get what the menu stated. If it wasn’t available, I should have been made aware so that I could decide if I wanted to proceed with that entree selection.
Secondly, for dessert we ordered the Maple Bacon Creme Brûlée w/candied bacon...well we did get creme brulee, however there was no actual candied bacon-not even in the flavoring.
What I’d like the staff of Itta Bena to know is the menu’s description of the food you serve weighs largely on how and what diners choose. If the kitchen isn’t stocked with ingredients for a particular menu item-either inform the customer and offer another available option-or remove it from the menu until those ingredients are replenished. It’s misleading to do otherwise and poor business practice. As a result of this experience, I’ve reluctantly rated our service less than ideal for an otherwise decent waiter. In hindsight, I feel as though it was up to him to communicate any differences between the menu and what actually came to the table.
This was supposed to be a special milestone birthday dinner but as I stated earlier, aside from the ambiance and music, I’m left disappointed.
The ambiance and service is awesome, but the food and drinks are a bit overpriced. The food menu is a bit small as well. I will still recommend it because it’s a nice place for a date or a birthday.
