Diner Reviews
  • "First visit and had a great time looking forward to many more. Service and food was excellent. Good place for special occasions."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Flight. Their concept of flights (multiple choice options/combinations) of food and wine is a foodie's delight whose time has come. I wish I had thought of it!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "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."

  • "The lobster bisque was great. Be sure to order the Seafood Flight...OUTSTANDING!"

  • "We took a group of 6 for my daughter's 16th Birthday Party. Everyone loved trying new things. We had so much fun and our waiters were amazing! They even brought my daughter a special desert with a candle. Can't wait to go again!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The entire experience was excellent. Our server (wish I would've gotten his name) was extremely good and very helpful. The food was delicious. I had the elk chop and it was awesome!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "Flight was a fantastic dinner choice for a special occasion. Excellent wine list, wonderful service and fantastic food."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "For the price I thought the food was sub-par and the resturant really didn't deliver a quality product except for a couple of specific dishes. We where glad to have enjoyed eatting there but it is not a place I would recommend to friends."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Enjoyed sampling variety of "flight" wines and dishes(including appetizers, soups, salads, entrees and of course desserts). Unique offerings provided delightful dining experience. Recommend fish and seafood flights! Attentive service."

  • "The food was great as always. I love the ambience in the restaurant. It feels like you are in New York City."

  • "Our server Shay(I believe that's how you spell his name), was amazing. Our experience was one to remember. He was genuine and loves to give excellent service."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "The service is excellent. The staff makes you feel special in so many ways. The food is great and cooked anyway you want it. Plus, the experience of a "flight" makes deciding on a dish so much easier."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Flight is always a good choice for dinner. I took a friend visiting Memphis there to dinner. Service and food is always great."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "We had an absolutely delicious meal (the seafood and beef flights were incredible) and wonderful wines. The only snag is that we were seated on the patio around 9:15pm and left covered in mosquito bites."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Overall it was a great experience, my only "tweak" is the seating dynamic. It's better if you don't seat a party of 12 in the middle of booths and tables for two. Large groups are loud and seem to drink only to get louder. It makes conversation for two impossible. Due to the close proximity of our table to theirs, it felt like we were sitting at the kids table at their family reunion. I can't in good conscience deem Flight as "romantic". The concept, food and service are fantastic without a doubt and we will go back, just not with the expectation of a quaint dinner for two. Also I was a little taken by the two televisions in the bar with baseball on... Again that doesn't meet the advertised setting we were expecting."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "My criteria for a great restaurant is: I can't wait to come back and bring some one new with me."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "The food was wonderful. The wait staff was very attentive. Was overcharged by 2 drinks ($16) but corrected. Check your bill. Too loud, too bad. Even said, would like to return."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Four of us ate and three had flights. Everyone was quite pleased with their food,although the dishes came rather slowly. The server was bright and effective."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Flight is our go-to special occasion restaurant in Memphis. We took two friends there for their birthdays, and had some unusual misses this time. One of us received something that they didn't order on their entree flight, and the food quality was below its usual standard for several of the dishes (the scallop was terrible, and the fried softshell crabs were overbreaded and tough). The desserts were edible, but where they are usually fantastic, this time only were fine. Very surprising, especially since we were dining on a Saturday night. I hope that this was a fluke, and we would be willing to return, but sincerely hope that we have a better experience in the future."

  • "A great place for something special and/or something different. Top-notch service from the complimentary valet parking to the hostess to the waiter. Highly recommend!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The atmosphere is very relaxing and the employees are extremely patient and courteous! I would recommend this restaurant to friends and family."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We were fascinated by the small plates, called flights. It was great for the appetizers, soups and salads, but I wish I had gotten only one entree. Some of the dishes were not as warm as the could have been. All three soups were good and the lamb loin was delicious. Veal tenderloin was cool. Fish of the day was enjoyed by diner, who wasn't too happy with the gulf snapper. Favorite desserts were: Lava Cake, Chocolate Chip Souffle, Blueberry Sorbet, and Bananas Foster Bread Pudding. Creme Brulee was a little runny."

  • "Table of 2 guests; had food and mixed drinks; attended on a Friday night around 9pm The ambiance of the place was very cozy; 2 floors of tables with quiet/dim lighting. The servers were very helpful and attentive. However, the noise level was far from quiet. As a good comparison, I could not hear myself talk. If you're looking for a quiet romantic setting, do not go on a Friday night. The food was fair. Many of the dishes we tried were new to us, which was fine. We had asked that the meat dishes be cooked medium to well done, but almost all the meat dishes came out lightly seared or very rare (which was a negative experience). If you are not a fan of raw meat, be sure to ask for well cooked meat or don't order meat at all."

  • "Service was excellent , food was delicious. I loved being able to sample more than one thing at a time. Great place to find high end items. Prices were comparable for the type of restaurant."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner at Flight. The atmosphere was great. The service was fabulous. But the food was outstanding. We especially enjoyed flexibility of ordering a "flight". I had a small plate of the bison ribeye. Sooooo delicious! Husband had a flight including shrimp and grits, chicken and waffles, and Boursin stuffed filet. He was one happy camper. Then we shared yummy desserts. Nice wine list. We highly recommend."

  • "We saw the review about flight and having small dinner tasting options. I was traveling with work colleagues and we thought we would give it a try. Love that you were able to Mix and match different small plates to make one meal. We all try different flights so we could have a wide array of the food. We started with the cold seafood tower which was great to share. I moved onto the fish flight and mix it with some of the seafood. Concept is great so you're able to try a lot of food and not be too stuff. We shared a flight dessert have the chocolate next with the crème brûlée. I'm glad we only shared it felt like more then one dessert. Next time I'm traveling in Memphis will definitely head back"

  • "Our first trip to Flight was a gourmet dining experience. Delicious, great service, and fabulous variety of choices! Wish we had known about Valet Parking before going. Group next to us was very loud. Felt like someone should have asked them to quiet down, but that would have been rude; but not as rude as them for being so inconsiderate to other diners. We were able to tune them out most of the time except for one woman with boisterous laughter. Sometimes we could not even hear each other. Overall, an outstanding dining experience."
