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 ☹️

The customer service was outstanding!! Loved the atmosphere. The chicken was not satisfying at all. Overcooked, I had to send the meal back. Drinks and dessert was great! I will definitely give them another chance when it’s not a holiday.

Food was top tier-possibly the best I've had in my life. We went for Valentines day and the service was phenomenal and so was the ambience. They had someone playing the piano the entire time, but it wasn't too loud. Everyone was super friendly and they brought a rose to the table after dinner. 10/10

The food was disappointing, not to the level we've come to expect from Itta Bena. No bread was available, to eat with your meal. Shrimp and grits were bland and cold. The atmosphere was excellent, the meal was not

The Menu Selection wasn’t advertised as a smaller Valentine’s Day Menu so options were limited and although the food was delivered properly the flavors in the Main Course (Chicken Marsala) was less than desirable and left me wanting more other wise the entire experience was excellent!

My husband and I enjoyed our dinner very much! Our food took a little long to come out, but we understood, because it was a busy night. We were offered some She-crab soup, which was delicious, while we waited. We had a crab cake appetizer, and we both had a filet as our entree. Everything was wonderful! Our filets were phenomenal!!! They had a nice, crunchy sear with the inside of the steak so tender, it was like butter!! I really wanted to have creme brûlée, but they had already sold out for the night. Overall, we had a wonderful experience, and we will definitely be back!! Thank you!

We enjoyed our visit. Ambiance was everything! Food was good but no real variety in dessert and lamb was over cooked. Service was only fair. Friendly but not knowledgeable about the menu items or how they were prepared and courses came out too fast

One of the rare options for dinner on Dec 25th.
The staff was friendly. The food though, disappointing. The duck roll was like old food. My fish came cold. The table was not well cleaned. We found a mask from previous costumers. Detail, we came first slot for dinner. The restaurant had just reopened for dinner.

Went for my wife's birthday, atmosphere was awesome & service was great. As soon as we got out of the elevator we it felt like we had arrived in another world - "swanky" atmosphere, live piano & casual, elegant decor! We sat in a booth (with privacy curtains...) and were "pampered" by all!! Raven was the best and Dee, the manager, made sure everything was perfect. Food was excellent - she-crab soup and chicken lettuce wraps are labeled as appetizers but were large enough to be their own meals!! Filet mignon was cooked perfectly - could cut it with a fork - and tasted excellent!! Only "complaint", if you could call it, was the meal was a bit "pricey", but we got whst we "paid for"! My wife was impressed & very pleased - Mission Accomplished!!! We will definitely be back!!!
