    As our server put it, "we do this with wine, why not food?" I expected something different when I made the reservations and was a bit intimidated by the concept. However, it was one I look forward to trying on our next visit to Memphis. I will pick a different flight next time. I chose the seafood flight and my only complaint was that the grits hadn't seen much salt but the other items were tasty. My husband can now say he's had elk, also! I've also discovered a Sauvignon Blanc that I like. The Duckhorn in the What a Tart Flight (which was the recommended flight to go with my Seafood food Flight) was a delicious discovery. The dessert flights were also scrumptious. I definitely recommend this restaurant!

    I was very excited about my visit to Flight, but once I got there I was a little disappointed. I made reservations and was offered a table by the door and declined. I was told the next table would be available in 15mins which felt like 30 mins. Once seated the service was okay. Our server was kind, but the food really didn't meet my expectations. I loved the ambiance and setting of the restaurant just wish the food was a little better and I was very disappointed with the food. The chicken and waffles was okay. The pork loin was really good hate I didn't have more. Overall it was an average experience, nothing to phone a friend about.

    The other flights dishes I ordered were great,...except for the mushroom gravy over the chicken and waffles. I'd prefer crispy not soggy chicken and a firm not soggy waffle. The only sauce I want on my waffle is maple syrup. The gravy should have been left off. My favorite of the meal was the red snapper and the BBQ shrimp.

    Intrigued by the concept, encouraged by the reviews, we chose Flight for our one night in Memphis. Loved everything about it. From the moment we arrived, the staff were all friendly and caring, the atmosphere buzzed with satisfied customers. Flight offers a unique setting with tables offered upstairs and down, but with the open railing it felt very inclusive and cozy. Our wine flights were a great opportunity to try labels unfamiliar to us and educational as the restaurant provides information cards on each chosen wine. Our flight options for food were varied and extensive and our choices did not disappoint. Delicious. Loved it!

    Service was very good. We had the flight salad which was good. I had the fish flight and could not eat the red snapper-way to fishy and not fresh. Another person in our party had the meat flight. It was ok but not great. Southern desert flight was good but not great. Food was good but not up to par with other fine restaurants. I would not return due to the cost being more than the quality of the food. I don't mind paying higher prices, but the food has to be better than what we had. Concept us clever but that is all.

    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.

    I love the flights concept. It allows you to sample a variety of dishes and preparations. The seafood flight was great. The black sable was the highlight of the flight. A great combination of southern hospitality and creative and sophisticated preparation. Wholeheartedly recommend without any reservations.

    Took my wife on her birthday (a Thursday evening). We had been there before, but had not eaten upstairs-which was really nice for a private view out the window). Valet parking super convenient. The folks, from the greeting to the farewell, were warm and energetic. The server (Dillon) was exceptional. The food was outstanding-pretty rich, so the flight portions were just right. We each got the flight (of 3) of wines-loved them. Simply no recommendations for improvement. We will be back.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
