Diner Reviews
  • "We loved the food and atmosphere. Our waiter was nice and helped us understand the Filght concept. We really liked the ability to mix and match the food choices and wines."

  • "We celebrated my sister's 60th birthday at Flight. We had requested a table on the patio and it was ready and waiting when we arrived. We ordered 2 flights of wine and the seafood appetizer flight. Service was a bit slow, but not annoyingly so. It gave us time to peruse the menu and taste the wines. We loved that we could order any 3 things for our entree courses. I had filet, scallops and red snapper, all of which were excellent. My sister got a creme brulee with a candle which we added to a dessert flight--almond torte was delicious. It was a lovely end to our Memphis stay--a nice change from all the barbeque, great though it was, we had consumed."

  • "This was ALMOST a great restaurant experience. The wine list is good and the idea of flights is a nice one, especially the idea of extending it to food. I had pork/bison/duck and the meats were all excellent and cooked just the way I asked. My only problem was with the carb accompaniments (the asparagus and mushrooms were good, if a little scanty). Each dish had it's own kind of carb, and the menu descriptions were enticing. But every one of them was mushy, overcooked and bland. They were essentially indistinguishable once they were in my mouth. Also the crumbs dotting some of them were an awful addition. I really enjoyed my meal here the service was excellent the carbs prevented it from being a memorable experience."

  • "Overall, our first time experience to Flight was awesome from start to finish! Our server, James provided excellent assistant and explanation of the history and various selections. Every aspect of the dining from the valet parking, the staff upon entry (welcomed and help celebrate our anniversary), waitresses, and James."

  • "My wife and I came to Memphis to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary via food. Our hotel desk clerk's first recommendation was Flight and we are absolutely glad that we did. I made reservations about 2 hours prior to our desired meal time and when we got there a line was out the door, however we walked in and they somehow knew who we were and ours was the only empty table in the restaurant. We were promised the best server(s): Wendy & Holly, who greeted us by name, took the time to explain their dining concept and paid us special attention the entire evening. The food was outstanding and filling. I would recommend Flight to anyone in or going to Memphis for a special occasion."

  • "My wife and I went to Flight to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and couldn't have more pleased with the service and quality of the food. The staff was courteous and attentive and food was outstanding. We loved the concept of course flights and thoroughly enjoyed our evening."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "Consistently great service and great food. Love being able to try many different foods because of the Flight concept. Desert flight is always great way to end the meal."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "The food was really great - Excellent preparation and presentation of the appetizers, entree's and salads. Having the flight portions gives the opportunity to try new things. I did not care for the chocolate turtle dessert - just runny chocolate in a hard, tasteless crust. However everything else was great and the service was top notch."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "I have eaten here many times, and for good reason! I have chosen this for nearly every special occasion because Flight never disappoints. Most recently, I celebrated a very special occasion with out-of-town family members and they were equally impressed. I have now moved from Memphis bit Flight will stick in my mind as one of the best parts if this city and one of my all-time favorite restaurants."

  • "this was our second time at this restaurant. the food was equally as delicious as the first time. the bison was our absolute favorite. service is excellent without being overbearing. definitely order the flights as it is fun to get to taste so many menu items."

  • "Our meal was unbelievable. Service was great and waiter was very helpful with the menu and wine list."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "We both had the Harvest salad and sea bass. The salad was very nice. We both thought the sea bass was bland and reminded us of baby food. I kept thinking if there was salt and pepper on the table I'd add it to the dish. It was disappointing."

  • "The food was phenomenal, and the service was excellent. Very good atmosphere."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Amazing concept and delicious food! Service was superb! Favorites of the night were: Le Crema Chardonnay; Cheese & Duck Sausage Appetizer, Harvest Salad, Fish Flight - Sea Bass, Snapper & Trout and had a small bite of the Lamb & Bison, which were also very flavorful! Will be back & will ask for James (our server) again!"

  • "This is the forth time my wife and I have eaten at Flight. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent along with the service."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "We heard so much about this restaurant. However our evening was a series of unfortunate events. From the host forgetting us to our meal being served before our salad to the bar tender not knowing how to make a Bellini. This was clearly not their night. The food was tasty bt the issues we faced brought down our evening. Not worth the cost of dinner."

  • "We booked after reading great reviews and this was a good decision. It's a fabulous place for a special night out."

  • "My first time visiting this restaurant. Excellent service, wonderful experience."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "The night for my wife and I was perfect. Our server, Chris was patient and walked us through the process of the Flight concept. His knowledge of the menu and the wine list was on par with what you would expect from an executive chef or a sommelier. He made the experience great and his explanations were spot on. The only thing that was surprising was the lack of a dress code. While most were dressed appropriately, there were a few in shorts and shirt, not golf apparel just a little less than a golfer would wear. Overall it was a perfect night, we cant wait to see what other options we can put together with food and wine!"
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Flight had excellent service. The food was very good. The small plate is enough for ladies with salad or soup. A small plate salad would be enough also. The soup you may want to get the bowl as the small plate version if about 3 -4 spoonfuls. The flight of desserts is huge so I suggest just getting one of the flight. Order a head of time because it took forever to get our desserts."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "The food is excellent, and it's a great place for a special occasion dinner. The food flights are a great way to sample a variety of foods and the wine flights are a good concept as well. Service is outstanding! Probably the best service I've ever had at a restaurant locally."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Excellent ambience, selections and great service. Upbeat vibe throughout. Best Lobster Bisque we've ever had in Continental US. Excellent Lamb & Potato cake. Wonderful Watermelon salad with goat cheese. Great clientele kept the night's momentum at wonderful pitch. Only average part of the evening was the desserts, but we went down to the bar after closing our tab and sampled a full glass of our favorite wines from the flights we had tried and made the evening remain a memorable experience. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys food and wine. We will be back but the prices will probably dictate another special evening, although we may drop by for a glass of wine as the bar area was very comfortable and welcoming."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "While we enjoyed the ambience of Flight and eating outside was perfect, the food was disappointing. I had the "Feathered" flight and all three of my dishes lacked flavor. The duck confit was delicious but needed a sauce for flavor and to tie the dish together. The chicken and waffles were completely bland. The only distinctive flavor at all on any of the dishes was the little bit of barbecue-type sauce on the quail. My husband's steak was not medium-rare as he requested, but was medium. I had heard so much about Flight but was very disappointed and will not go back."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "What a great experience this was! We were visiting Memphis for our anniversary and chose Flight for our celebration dinner. We enjoyed our waiter (Eddie?) very much! He was fun to talk with, always there when needed, but not too intrusive. The food was amazing and one of the most unique meals we ever had since you are able to taste so many different things. I had the Loin Flight and my husband had the Chef's Flight--he said it was the best scallop he had ever tasted! The meats were all cooked perfectly and each side was so scrumptious, especially the potato croquette and the pumpkin ravioli. The Southern Flight dessert was the perfect ending to our meal and the portions are very generous!"

  • "Flight continues to deliver a very enjoyable dining experience. The food is excellent and the service is top-notch. We could not have been happier with our night at Flight."

  • "This was the first time I have been to this restaurant, and I was beyond satisfied. The food was delicious and the wine was out of this world. The flight concept is genius."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "I love the option of adding the concept of a wine flight to a whole meal. I can taste 3 or more menu items without guilt! Flight executes the plan well and the food tastes great."

  • "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."

  • "Amazing! My family loved their experience and it will be a great memory. They travel all over and never had this kind of experience. Definite memory"

  • "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."
