Diner Reviews
  • "Sat up stairs on a Sunday evening at 8:15 and the place was packed. It was loud. My senior citizen parents would have hated it. I've sat on the patio before, but I don't know how diners that night were dealing with the Southern humidity and ravenous mosquitoes. The food was not the best I've ever had, but the meal, as a whole, was fantastic. Good location, good atmosphere, good wine, and my great friends probably had a lot to do with the overall positive experience. But really, it was the service. Not too intrusive, but very professional. We like long, undisturbed meals, but guests expecting overbearing promptness might not enjoy it so much. When it comes down to it, we would all definitely return, and that's all the matters, right?"

  • "Had a small group of friends meet for drinks and dinner in honor of my wife's birthday. Everything was perfect. Even had a last minute change in number of people for dinner and the host made a great change on the fly with our table...never missed a beat. The food was great as was the server (Chris). The best experience however were the ladies behind the bar. They were great with a good humor, good conversation, perfect timing and excellent drink mixing! And Kudos to the lovely & helpful Hostess (Rachel)."

  • "We went to Flight to celebrate my sister-in-law's birthday. It was a great choice! Our service was excellent, the food was delicious, the wines were good and the atmosphere was perfect. We were a group of six and we were able to talk/hear comfortably. The concept of flights of 3 is really neat- a good way to enjoy a little bit of 3 different things. Great way to celebrate a special occasion"

  • "My husband and I went to Flight for a night out. We had wanted to try it for a few months. Our appetizers, the fried green tomatoes and seafood flight, were both outstanding. My husband ordered the steak flight and he enjoyed all of his dishes. I made my own flight with filet, veal scallopine, and a pork tenderloin. There was sauce on the first scallopine but not enough for two pieces. The filet was very good and both of our favorite. I didn't enjoy the pork at all. I only ate a couple of bites but they were very chewy and had a bad texture so I didn't eat it. My husband tried a bite and he liked it. We ordered the chocolate flight for desert and if you are a chocolate fan then you will enjoy it."

  • "Brought coworkers for dinner. We all had dinner, wine, and desert flights. White bass was a little dry, but everything else was excellent. Great flavor combinations. A little noisy for private conversations."

  • "my wife and I went there for our second time and were very disappointed. the first time it was excellent, and this time was far from it. I do not know what changed, but the quality of the food and the service were not up to our expectations. this restaurant is quite expensive, and i expected much more for the price."

  • "I really like all the choices. I enjoyed being able to order small entree plates, similar to a Tapas bar in that regard, but much better. The wine parings and choices are just phenomenal."

  • "After my son took me to dinner at Flight for Fathers Day, the food and service was so amazing, he wanted to go back for his birthday. The family was a party of five, 4 of whom are in the restaurant business, and know food and service and how difficult it is to achieve the excellence that Flight exemplifies. Our reservations were for 8 PM, but because of some confusion as to who was the server for our table, we didn't get a waiter until 8:23 PM. Well, the apologies were effusive from our waiter and the manager. Flights of free appetizers arrived at our table along with complimentary wine and other aperitifs. Delicious and exciting, they might have made a meal themselves. The meal was just as exemplary, and Shea, our server was first-rate."

  • "Anytime we visit Memphis we make sure we dine at flight. The service is always great and the food exceptional. We take advantage of the flight concept for wine food and liquor. I had the trout, lamb and filet. All were excellent and the trout was the best I have had anywhere."

  • "Wowed us with the service, the food, the people - it was awesome. The menu concept is awesome as well. They match-up all these entries and place three together in each group. But then you can mix them all up and choose the ones you want!! I have Celiac's disease, so I must eat gluten free. There were at least ten entrees I could have chosen from. Thumbs up to all the staff as well!! Go Dylan!!"

  • "We dined here last night for my birthday. It was FABULOUS! Shelby, our server, was attentive, knowledgeable, and a joy. The food was wonderful. Being able to choose a "flight" is an added bonus when you can't decide on one thing! The location on Main Street downtown affords a lovely view. The weather was perfect for sitting outside."

  • "Outstanding setting with the two levels. Food and service was excellent. If in Memphis this is a great place for a special evening."

  • "I can not think of a better meal I have ever had in my entire life! A group of my girlfriends dined with me and we tried the elk, pork tender, lobster and biscuits, and chicken and waffles. We ranked them in that order. The elk and pork tender were to die for! The wine was also excellent! Next time we will save room for dessert."

  • "My son wanted to take me to a unique restaurant for my birthday. So we made reservations at Flight Restaurant. He thought it was an aviation themed restaurant. The service, food and ambience made my Flight experience excellent in every way. It reminded me of dining in Chicago or New York (without the high price). Dining at Flight made my birthday feel special."

  • "The Flight staff was accomodating and made my dining experience memorable. The staff made note of my special occasion and offered us the best seating and treatment throughout the night. The staff was knowledgeable, positive and hospitable. Great customer service and I would go back for the food in a heart beat. They even allowed us to bring in our own cake for the occasion and kept it cool while we ate. Nice people!"

  • "My fiance and I experienced a magical night at Flight restaurant. We celebrated our 6th anniversary in a very romantic way. We both loved the Flight menu which gave us a variety of options to choose from. We were given complimentary champagne to celebrate our anniversary. We started with the Flight of Soup for our appetizer, then ordered the Flight of Wine "Tiny Bubbles" which were all very flavorful. Our entrees were outstanding! I chose the Steak Flight and my fiance chose the Seafood Flight. We were both impressed with the presentation as well as the overall taste of the dishes. I hate that we were too stuffed to try the Flight dessert; maybe next time! Flight Restaurant & Wine Bar is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion."

  • "Flight has not failed me yet. During a recent dinner for 4 we tried about 10 of their entrees, which we all shared/tasted. Can't say any of them were less than perfect. The scallops were "melt-in-you-mouth" precise, as were the shrimp & grits. The chicken & waffles were hard to just sample and the lamb and duck were outstanding. We actually had a "picky eater" in our group and she was an instant convert to many items she would not normally try. The desserts (cheesecake, bread pudding, key lime pie) just raised the ante for that meal. And the service was impecible. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant."

  • "My husband and I went for our anniversary and I must say we were blown away! Everything was perfect from the moment we walked in the door. The only thing that was a little shocking was the bill so be prepared to spend a little extra."

  • "The pictures and the menu made it seem like it was a nice quiet intimate place I could take my significant other. Given the time that I scheduled my meal I really thought the atmosphere would have calmed down. I would come back with friends but would rethink my table placement."

  • "Great food with unbelievable variety of food options. Shelby is a great server."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "I have been there a few times and clearly it is a better value to purchase a flight of anything. You not only get a variety but you get more for the same price. If you want wine, get the flight. I enjoy the atmosphere and the servers are very accommodating. With drinks you will likely spend >$50 per person, but you will have a good time."

  • "My wife wanted to try Flight for a long time and now that she was able to try it she enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant, the food and the wine and the setup of the menu and choices. This was a great birthday for her and she enjoyed it. I was satisfied with the food and service as well but more importantly it made my wife happy so I am happy."

  • "We had a great time at Flight Restaurant and Wine Bar. It was our one year anniversary, and upon entrance we were greeted and congratulated on our one year! Our waitress was extremely nice and helpful because it was our first visit to this restaurant. The food was delicious. For an appetizer, we had the Ocean Flight. It was extremely delicious, and the crab cake was awesome. For dinner, my wife mixed and matched with a steak, lobster biscuit, and chicken and waffles. I had the seafood flight. We shared what we had, and everything was cooked to order. We received some champagne for our anniversary. That was a real treat. We mixed and match for dessert too. The bananas foster bread pudding was my favorite. It was great dining experience!"

  • "We were dining with friends and although we had reservations, the weather was rainy and stormy so we had to wait about 45 minutes for our table. The dinner was well worth the wait! Our server, Monica, was very knowledgeable about the menu selections and gave us her favorites from each section, if we wanted to have a "flight" instead of just one main entree. The cocktails and appetizers were served in perfect timing and they were delicious. Our favorite salad was the feta with watermelon although we did enjoy the wedge as well. Our entrees were to die for. Everyone ordered the special which was the rib-eye and it was so tender, it just melted in your mouth. Flight is still one of our favorite downtown restaurants."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I heard people talk about it, race about it, and I wanted to try it. The service we received was terrific, but the food was just so-so. I had elk, chicken and waffles, and quail and dumplings. Nothing was "bad" but nothing was stellar either (except the Mac and cheese with the elk; that was stellar). It kind of bland and other than it being semi-exotic in name, the taste was pretty boring. Sorry for being a downer on what is undoubtedly one of the favorites of many, just my take."

  • "My girlfriend and I dined at Flight before attending a performance at the Orpheum. Being from out of town we relied on restaurant reviews and decided on Flight. We were not disappointed. The food was great from appetizers to desserts. A unique option are "flights" which are sampler plates of 3 different appetizers, salads, and/or desserts. Splitting any of these is satisfying without over filling. The small plate option of entrees is perfect for an early dinner. Highlights of our meal were the beef filet and the Key Lime pie. The wait staff were attentive without being intrusive. Overall, Flight is as fine a white cloth-casual restaurant as you will find anywhere."

  • "Was perfect pre-theatre meal. Love that you can get small plates or entree sized portions so didn't go to play feeling stuffed. Had sushi and carpaccio appatizer flights - then salad flight and my husband had the special cobia. Everything was really tasty! Service was efficient so we were on time for show. Really enjoyed ourselves."
