Flight Restaurant & Wine Bar - Memphis
Top 5 in MemphisEverything about Flight is worth coming back for - the concept is creative and different, the execution of that concept is amazing. Food is brilliantly presented and is consistently delicious (this was our second time there, ordered completely different food and it was all great). One of the best plates my wife and I have ever had was the lamb on the tenderloin flight - good Lord.
Great atmosphere, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Can't say enough good things about it. We LOVE great food and have dined at most of the great places in Memphis - this place goes toe to toe with any of them.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Experience!This was my first time going to Flight and it is hands down one of the best upscale restaurants in Memphis. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to a friend and I can't wait to go back!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMexpensive but very good. slightlyexpensive but very good. slightly dissapointed with a flight with lambchop only has one chop but was very good5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFlight DelightThis was our first visit to Flight. We were aware that this eatery was a wine bar but not aware that food selections were also available in flights. We loved being able to taste bits and pieces of different entrees and desserts. We thought everything was delicious. Our favorite was the goat cheese ravioli that was a side to the pork tenderloin.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Idea!The "flight" concept for dining really works. This a unique idea. The opportunity to taste multiple wines, a few appetizers, and several entrees gives the diner a chance to sample many things on the menu for the same price as one. The food was amazing. I didn't try one thing that wasn't superb. Although the restaurant is nice, it is located in a less than great area of downtown and thank goodness for valet parking. There is nowhere to park for less than a fortune. Overall a great experience.....5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayTook my mother the day after Mother's Day and she and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Our waiter,Jon, was very polite as were the other staff that brought out our plates. The food was also unique and delicious. I'm a very picky eater who sticks to beef and chicken but I tried the lamb and LOVED IT. Overall a great place to go to for a special treat.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMmy bday at Flight May 13, 2013I celebrated my bday at Flight and once again had the Ocean Flight. I loved the atmosphere. I had a group of 7 in my party. We all were very impressed. The overall experience was great.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful ExperienceMy friend Suzette and I love to go to resturants we have not tried before. We went to the Orpheum for my birthday and decided to try Flight. I had made reservations for 5:30. We were early, and they seated us immediately. The staff greeted us at the door, our waiter, John was very informative about the process, the menu, and had wonderful recommendations. Nate was also around often with offers of refills and to help with the clearing.This was truly the best dining experience I have had in years! (and I like to eat!) Bring a group so you can try more items. Everything we tried from the Green Apple Soup to the decadent Creme Brulee was incredible. Highly recommend for any special occasion, date night or "just 'cause".5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother excellent meal.We decided to hold back this time. Last time here we had Appetizer flight, entree flight and desert flight as well and the check showed it, but it was still worth every cent!
The wine flights were excellent and a great way to chose which to have a full glass of.
For starters the Watermelon and Feta salad was a delightfully simple but refreshing start and my wife and daughter had the Chefs Special Crab Salad and Avocado and Lobster Bisque respectively. Again both were excellent.
We had an Entree flight each. The New Zealand Elk was superb and the only minor let down was that my wifes duck was slightly overcooked. They immediately offered to do another but she declined, but they then presented us with a complimentary dessert anyway.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFlying ColorsYou'll see mixed reviews for flight but we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Our waiter, Mark, was excellent. He knew the wines and food backwards and forwards and he knew just when to return to the table to check on us. The flights of wine are fun ; the flights of food are a good concept. If you play with the small plates, you'll be sure to find a winner.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThanks!Husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our first dining experience at Flight! The food was incredible, the service relaxed but excellent. We were not rushed, everyone was right on top of everything, the food choices and the way we were able to try so many different dishes was unique and awesome. Thanks for a lovely evening and we will be back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Flight!This was my second time at this unique restaurant - absolutely loved it! Again!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Experience!Food and atmosphere was amazing!! I loved the flight portions, if you can't decided what to order the flight option allows you to sample a couple of entrees at once.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZING SERVICESally, our server, was wonderful!........She was genuinely nice, and she took the time to make sure this was a GREAT dining experience !!!!......This was so important to me and my sister, since we were all celebrating with my mother, for her Mother's Day dinner.
THANKS SALLY !!!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, the service wasAs usual, the service was excellent!....from the maitre'd, Joshua (?), to my wiatress, to the bus staff, to the valet staff. Mgmt did a great job of getting ALL employees to understand EVERY employee should help EVERY patron in the restaurant, whether or not the patron is sitting in their area. When I leave, I am always very glad I chose Flight!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFlightExcellent! Wonderful food, service, ambiance. Both excellent food and experience getting to try so many types of wine and food!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for SamplersFlight was GREAT for those who like to sample food and not get stuck with a whole plate of food you might not like. We LOVED just about everything we tried. The creme brule' was heavenly and the Raspberry Sorbet was like putting a Raspberry cloud in your mouth! We were VERY impressed with the building, staff and I had never been somewhere that had Valet parking. It was just what we needed since my in-laws didn't need to walk two blocks to the restaurant.
It is on the priceyer side of a dinner, but the quality of food they served was WELL WORTH the price. A very nice experience for my birthday.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat restaurant in MemphisA fantastic and very fresh concept for eating out. A great combination of tapas style and traditional three course dining. The idea of a 'flight' of different food and drink really worked for us. Not only that, but each element of each dish was executed wonderfully. It was our wedding anniversary and Flight was perfect for that occasion. There are areas where the restaurant could improve to lift the four star score to a five star score, and these should be relatively simple. While the subdued lighting helps create a romantic and intimate atmosphere, it was perhaps a little too subdued to read the menu! We had to borrow the waiter's mini torch to do so. Also, for such an extensive wine list not to include any rose wine was a disappointment.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointedFourth time here, and the service and food gets better every time.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome!!!!Great concept, will hopefully be back in Memphis so can try other "flights"5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMProm NightA friend and I took out dates to Flight and we absolutely loved out!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the Wait!Our group of friends had been trying to dine at Flight for quite some time but we are last minute people. We finally asked for a reservation a week in advance. The ambience, extensive wine list, and superb food made it a night to remember. Chef Josh Perkins did an outstanding meal for us all. We will be back!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptionalThis was my first visit to Flight and I was not disappointed. Despite a very busy weekend in downtown Memphis, our party arrived early. This was not an issue for we were seated promptly. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and quite pleasant to converse with. The menu has so much to offer. The restaurant's most attractive feature...you don't have to choose one of anything. Try a Flight of anything listed on the menu including chef specials. With a Flight, you choose three of something perfectly portioned for your enjoyment. Flights are offered for ever course of the meal as well as for wines. You can't go wrong utilizing their concept. Very impressed with Flight and I highly recommend you visit them when in Memphis.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experienceWe were able to share so many tastes and would order every one of them again! Wonderful concept- wish we had one in the Washington, DC or Northern Virginia area. Much more than tapas! We may come back to Memphis just to eat at Flight.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Celebrating special timesThis is a really nice place with excellent service and great food and a vast wine selection. The ability to choose a flight of everything from appetizers, wines, and desserts is a definite plus. We were able mix and match food ad drink selections or stick with the pairings selected (which were spot on). The service was impressive with everyone working (manager, hostess, and wait staff). It was nice knowing that all the staff knew that it was our 10 year anniversary and wished us a happy anniversary ( a simple gesture but easily forgotten other places). This was the second time I have been to Flight and I would go back in a heartbeat!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for special occasions,Great place for special occasions, food is outstanding and so is the service.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience...much more than!!This is the second time to Flight. And again it was a great night out!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Flight!Everytime we choose Flight for dinner we are extremely satisfied with the whole dining experience. Downtown Memphis is blessed to have this fine restaurant.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWowWe were pointed to Flight by a friend and now I owe him big time, this place has incredible food and drinks. I have never had a crab cake this good before... And I have had a lot of crab cakes. Everything else was also incredible. Thanks Flight!!!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMvery decentExpensive.

Look forward to returning!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFlight is a very inovativeFlight is a very inovative restraunt you can make/mix your own meal. It was awesome, I had lamb chop, steak, and duck. Which I was able to mix my self. My husband had the Feather Flight which was a mix of birds it had duck, game hen, and chicken and waffles. It was almost the best meal we had while visiting Memphis. Our server asked us if we were going to the musical that night so she can get us out of there in time to get our seats. We were not but to just ask out right she was very thoughtful. The support staff was so super awesome and made sure we had everything we needed. Best service and best food.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and wine list.Great food and wine list. My only complaint was the time between ordering our drinks and food. The waiter seemed to have to many tables and took awhile to come back for our food order but was sorry and a very sweet young man and good waiter! We sat next to a large group of diners who got a little loud but not the restaurants fault.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPick a Flight-from the foodPick a Flight-from the food or wine list.

Great concept.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ate there for our anniversary.We ate there for our anniversary. We have never been to this restaurant and were extremely pleased.

Our table wasn't ready when we arrived (we were early, so not the restaurant's fault). The menu options were explained well by the waiting staff.

All of the staff were friendly and knowledgeable about all selections on the menu. I was very disappointed that after spending $500 in this restaurant, we were not allowed by management to take one photo of the group on the stairs, however. The servers offered to block the stairway for one photo and the manager refused to allow this.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMimpressedGreat food. Great atmosphere. Stands out from most restaurants. Our server was Taylor. A real gem!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I were celebratingMy wife and I were celebrating our birthdays. The staff at flight made it a birthday that we will never forget.
