    Flight was a wonderful choice for our 30th anniversary. The atmosphere was very welcoming, and the staff was very hospitable. Our waiter, Patrick, made our dining experience and celebration even more memorable with personable, knowledgeable, and excellent service. Please let Patrick know that when we return, we will most certainly request him as our waiter. The food was unique and delicious. Our compliments to the chef. We will definitely be repeat customers.

    How can you go wrong with a place that greets you at the curb with complimentary valet parking? We entered the door and were greeted and sat right away. The server immediately made his way over and explained specials and how the menu works. The food is just outstanding and the fact that you basically get to make your own plate is just genius. No one in our party had any complaints. And just when you think your full, you stay for dessert which is well worth it! Thank you again for a wonderful evening with wonderful food and great staff!

    I cannot say enough good about this restaurant. From the moment you walk in the entire staff makes you feel like a top priority, which seems to be a lost art now a days. I made a reservation even though I didn't think getting a seat late on a Thursday would be an issue. This turned out to be a VERY good idea, because the wait without a reservation turned out to be lengthy from what I heard the hostess saying, although you can sit at the bar and enjoy a vast selection of drinks while you wait or go ahead and eat at the bar. When we arrived we took advantage of the complimentary valet and went on inside, we had arrived about 20mins early for our reservation and although this was on me, I immediately witnessed the whole front staff working all there magic to get us taken care of. I'd reserved a booth in the balcony and there was just not one available with me arriving early, I was offered a table and gladly accepted and I'm thankful I did because if I wouldnt have, I would have not been sat in Sheas area and would have missed out on the absolute best service I've ever experienced. Shea should write a book in his free time on how to be an unbelievable waiter, he knew we hadn't been there before and there is no way he could have educated us anymore. He knew the menu front to back and listened to us as to what we wanted and could not have delivered any better. If he tells you something Is good, don't second guess. I'll say we started with an appetizer, and flight of wine each, ordered 2 different flights of meat and finished with their chocolate dessert flight and I'll say this, I did not taste 1 bite of food that didn't blow my expectations out of the water. In closing, if you havnt experienced this restaurant then you've not experienced a truly all around 5 star establishment.

    I lived in Memphis for a while, but never made it to Flight. I heard such wonderful things about it, even after moving to STL. When my husband and I went back for my birthday weekend, I finally had a reason to try it...and we loved it! The food was amazing and the portions were big--even for small plates! My husband is a lot harder to impress and he LOVED it!!

    it was my first time dining at Flight. I had heard great things about flight so I wanted to check it out. Wow, the food was amazing. I love how you can choose a little flight of three appetizers, soups, and Entrees. I was stuffed so I couldn't do dessert but it's my goal the next time I go to Flight. Brett, our server was wonderful. He helped us understand the menu and provided us with great service. I was entertaining some clients and they enjoyed it as well. Thanks Flight! See you soon.

    Our experience was fantastic. Brett Campbell was our server and was incredibly helpful and provided the highest level of service. Every member on the team, from the hostess at the front door to the complimentary valet seem genuinely eager to provide the utmost experience for the customer. We chose Flight as the location to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary, and we could not have been more pleased. The food was excellent and the portions generous. I am a big guy, and I like to eat a lot of food. I left full and pleasantly satisfied with everything I tasted. Flight is not your typical fine dining restaurant that serves small portions and a large bill. Their approach to serve food in "flights" is brilliant and allows you to taste a large variety of food featured on their menu. I will absolutely return to Flight again and again as well as recommend it to anyone looking for a nice place to have lunch or dinner. My first experience only makes me want to come back again and experience a different combination of food and drink. In terms of fine dining in the Memphis area, in my opinion, there is not a better experience than Flight.

    Our dinner at Flight was an enjoyable one. The food was excellent, and due to the construction of the menu, you could enjoy "flights" or smaller versions of many different foods, or stick to regular portions, which were large. My husband and I enjoyed the flights of soups, entrees and desserts, they were creative and very good quality. The service was excellent, our waiter James York went out of his way to make sure we were happy with our food, he was very thorough and pleasant. Everyone, including the bus boys, water girl, were friendly, the atmosphere is fun. I would recommend taking a flight over to check it out when in Memphis.

    Foodie Heaven is not an understatement, a far reaching menu along with one of the most extensive wine lists in the Memphis Metro there is literally too many choices to consider. The Staff is very knowledgeable in both food and wine and insure a great culinary experience. Flight should be on each Foodies bucket list. If price is a concern you can still experience food nirvana by use of their small plate offerings or if you are accustomed to the finer things you can achieve the ultimate dining experience. Treat yourself to Flight while you can without reservations a month in advance!

    The service was the best we've ever had! The food was great as well. The only negative was how small our table was. We were seated right next to the wall upstairs and it made eating uncomfortable. I would definitely return. My only request would be not to be seated in the same table as last time.

    Flight is one of those places that, depending on the company you're in or you menu choices, offers a unique and excellent experience. Whether you are trying a new flight of wines, or the chef's flight of dinner specials you can't mess this up. I had the opportunity to sit in an upstairs booth for the first time. It feels like you are being swallowed in the leather, but in a good way. For a date night it was quite an intimate setting. Between the food, wine, and excellent service of James our server it could not have been a better night.

    What an awesome idea. Flights for every course. They have solved everyone's problem when it comes to having to choose between entrees. We picked this restaurant because it was close to our hotel and the night before when we passed by, the line was down the sidewalk waiting to be seated. In my book that means they are doing something right. Everything was tasty and presented perfectly. One recommendation, if you are ordering dessert, order one and split it. There is plenty for two. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

    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!

    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.
