    We thoroughly enjoyed our experience w/ excellent food, wine & service. Being foodies, we have high expectations - Flight did not disappoint. We had the carpaccio flight w/ beef, elk and venison-impeccably prepared and matched w/ greens & cheese. The lobster bisque was so good I wanted to lick the bowl. I had the steak flight with beef tenderloin, elk chop and bison ribeye. The serving size was ample and when combined with the appetizer and soup, definitely enough to satisfy hearty appetites. We split the chocolate flight of desserts - each was plenty by itself, but so delicious. The wines were outstanding, matched by excellent service. Perfect place to bring out-of-town guests or for a special occasion.

    My daughter and I tried Flight for the first time 2 nights ago. We are both "samplers" in that we like a variety of foods. Well this is the place!! We each ordered 2 flights of 3 entrees and swapped half way in. So, we each got 2-3 bites of 6 delectable entrees and the vegetables that accompanied them. It was pure joy. We also got a flight of salad and soup, and of course dessert. I will definitely be back. It's a little pricey, but perfect for a special night.

    We had an excellent dinner. neat concept...spin off of tapas. Small plates & items ordered in Flights of 3. My favorite way to dine, so I can try multiple different items from the menu. Charcuterie app was delicious with pheasant & boar sausage. Hard to decide what was favorite dish. A MUST IF IN MEMPHIS.

    Tried out this restaurants on a recommendation from a friend. Free valet parking was available that night. Excellent service. Wait staff was very knowledgable about the menu. Love the ability to have three small plates, called a flight, which could be modified to your liking. Enough to allow a good taste but not too much food. Great for sharing! Menu selections were varied. I loved it!

    I was disappointment by their food. Other things bothered me as well, but the main reason is the food. I like the concept of having small plates and the waiter explained very well that., he emphasizes that this is an opportunity to taste different plates. Well i felt with the choice of 3 there is one that it is not high quality as the others and they try to get rid off it. The same for the desert... The soufflé is nothing but a cinnamon cake, that was tooooo cinnamon. We went Wednesday evening, it was extremely noisy. The restroom is small and old. The service was too slow, we waited 1h&40 min to get the entree. The waiters were nice, caring, explained everything very well. I am not planning to go there again.

    Restaurant was nice and quiet, service was very good, but the prices were way too high for the mediocre food. The different dinner meals did not match the menu descriptions. The Veal Scallopini was dry, tasteless and needed salt. It would have been better with mashed potatoes and gravy. The Boursin Stuffed Fillet was not stuffed and needed garlic powder. The Chicken and Waffles was good but needed more maple syrup. The meatloaf dinner with mashed potatoes, pinto beans and green beans that I prepared the next evening was so much better there is no comparison and i did it for under $ 10.00.

    The night started of promising but went down hill from there. My wife ordered the Fish Flight but got the Seafood Flight. Given how long the food took & that she had originally considering the Seafood before hearing about the catch of the day she didn't send it back. Only problem was the Lobster Biscuit and Gravy was over cooked, the Shrimp and Grits were overcooked and bland, but all that said the Sea Scallop Benedict was a little gem of goodness. I ordered the Steak flight medium rare however all 3 dishes were more rare so I will try ordering them medium next time. When the entrees arrived my wife order another Lemon Drop Martini one that she did not receive until after we had finished eating our food. I hope this was just a bad night.

    Very Good Food But will order a little less next time. With desert more than I could/should eat. Several items were outstanding the corn, bison, bread pudding. Only thing that disappointed was the Soufle it was more a large cookie than a soufle. Over all a great place and meal that I will return to again.

    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!

    Nearly everything was perfect, but there were just little things that irked me a bit. First, there was the party that had brought their toddler and baby to dinner here. Not cool! Needless to say, the kiddies made their presence known throughout the night. Please respect the other diners by not bringing your tiny children here. Also, the small plate portion size varied greatly depending on what you got. I got the special, a delicious bison ribeye, and the portion was nearly non-existent. Like, 3 bites of bison for $16. Whereas my fiancee ordered the duck, and got a huge breast. (I may have helped her finish it.) Still, the food tasted delicious, the service was great, and it was still a lovely night.

    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.

    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.
