    This place has it all--ambiance, EXCELLENT service, great wine list, and delicious and innovative food. Free valet was a nice bonus. My only request would be for a little more punch to the entrees. Trying to please everyone can make for tame tastes.

    Flight is unlike any restaurant my husband and I have ever dined with. The ability to try 3 of any category:(wines, appetizers, soups, salads, entrees or desserts), is fabulous! Even still, there are more tempting choices than time to eat in one visit. The staff are informative and doting while not being intrusive. Everyone dining around us was clearly having an enjoyable experience, too! A must for any out of town guests, special occasion, or those who just enjoy superb food and wine!

    My wife and I dined at Flight at 7:30PM, on a Saturday night. We had reservations; however, there was a group of 4 immediately behind us who were given an hour to an hour and a half wait time - make reservations! I have to give kudos to the entire staff, because it didn't matter if a table was "theirs" or if they were the maître d, table resets/bussing, food service and drink refills were spot-on. I had the soup flight, steak flight, red carpet wine flight and port wine flight. My wife mixed-and-matched small plates, and we split the traditional desert flight. It took 2 hours to eat, but SO worth it - quality takes time! The food is great and presentation is superb. It's not cheap (ours was $175), but well worth every second and dollar.

    Great concept of tasting menu dishes. Even more impressive was the idea of a wine flight, which was generous and reasonably priced for what they provided. Menu is a little pricey, especially if you want to mix-up your entree flight. My wife's lamb was perfect. Upstairs seating was quiet for our early reservation. Ocean Flight appetizer was such a hit that two neighboring tables were overheard asking, "what's that?" and then ordering it as well!

    Everything on the menu sounded so good, it was hard to choose! Loved the concept of the "flights" so we could try many different things. Food was all wonderful, and the service was exceptional! Our waiter, James, was perfect and made our experience even better. Informative, patient, funny, attentive, and professional are a few words I would use to describe him!!! Definitely will dine here again when back in Memphis.

    Quite expensive but excellent food and a great concept of having 3 of each course and wine selection. Each selection is perfectly cooked - the calamari was beautifully tender. Not for an "every night" meal (try the Bardog nearby for that) but certainly worth the visit.

    We went for a birthday, and everyone in our party enjoyed the food, wine, ambiance, and service. The newbies and out-of-towners were very impressed overall. We especially loved to be able to have a good sampling of several dishes -- loved the concept of Flight. Some of our fave dishes were the lobster biscuit and gravy, sea scallop Benedict, elk chop, all the fish dishes, and all the desserts. The only reason we would not be able to go more often is the high cost of everything. However, it's definitely great for special occasions.

    I loved the idea behind the flights. I can never make up my mind in a good restaurant and now I don't have to! I get to order more than one entre item in any category. No more feeling like I should have had the..... because I did have it. The portions are not skimpy, either; including the wine flights.

    Sat outside and really enjoyed our meal! Service was OUTSTANDING!!! Food was really very good - had the Fish Flight with a generous portion of three different types of fish. I would recommend this restaurant not only for the varied food menu, but for the location which is right on Main Street.

    Pros: Our waiter James was great. He explained the menu perfectly. We recommend sticking with the small plates or flights. However next time we go back, we will be ordering a regular portion of the lobster bisque. It was the best. We were celebrating our anniversary and this was a great experience. If you are crunched for time this is not the place for you. We had apps ,soup/salad, dinner, and dessert in about two hours and we thought was perfect for timing. Cons: Pricey but I will say probably worth it for special occasions. I was looking forward to the scallop Benedict and had to change my order after they ran out of scallops. Ended up ordering the elk which was the least favorite thing I ordered.

    This would have been an outstanding experience if not for the noise. This establishment is extremely busy, and I do mean extremely. We dined on a Wednesday night from 7:15 until 9 o'clock and there was never an empty table. The atmosphere is very casual. Our server Chris and his assistants were superb. There was a significant wait for our first course which was at first irritating but was soon forgotten after the food arrived. The unique dining concept of flights offers a very intriguing variety of tastes to savor. The excellent wine list is simply another plus. We wanted to order dessert but our two courses satiated us to the point we deferred. Would certainly recommend Flight if you are not adverse to an energetic noise level.

    Flight is small & charming, although loud. The service was prompt & attentive. Brett, one of our servers, stood out to us...friendly, attentive & made great suggestions. The concept of Flight is small plates (flights) from soup to desserts & all between. A great way to try lots of the menu. Musts: the deviled eggs, lobster bisque, watermelon salad, duck breast, trout, key lime pie, chocolate wellington & pecan pie. Disappointments: the bison ribeye which was about a 1oz portion, 1/3 of the size of my duck breast (good in taste but not in value), the other fish on the fish flight were just ok (trout was best). Make a reservation as the place is small and popular. No. 1 of 1200+ Memphis restaurants on trip Advisor & it shows!

    Flight was good, but not amazing. And for the prices, you want amazing. A nice thing is you can mix and match "flights" so if you don't want one item that comes with a flight, you can exchange it or have two (or one) items instead of all three. They have some intriguing wine and after dinner drink flights too. My pork was good, but too salty; my salad was SO overdressed and had cheese on it when I requested no cheese. However, my boyfriend really enjoyed his soup flight. Our dessert flights were so-so, and they were out of the dessert we really wanted to try. Service was incredibly SLOW (2.5 hours) and slightly rude, but, the hostess was nice and friendly.

    My wife loves the choices available at Flight with the selection of small portions (not that she chooses a different entree). The service is excellent and the staff attentive. Unless you are seated in a high traffic route to the kitchen, the overall experience can be special. The flights allows an individual to taste food or wine on a small serving basis. I learned that there are certain whiskeys I do not like and saved the expense of a dusty bottle sitting in my liquor cabinet.
