Flight Restaurant & Wine Bar - Memphis
We had a wonderful anniversaryWe had a wonderful anniversary dinner. The food was delicious!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst timeTwo couples enjoyed a great diner at Flights last Friday night. First time to eat there. We were visiting Memphis for the weekend and looking for a good restaurant. Having read reviews on Flight we decided to try it. We all loved it. I will be back.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe qualify of the food atThe qualify of the food at Flight is phenomenal. I love the combinations. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Concept Excellent FoodGreat overall experience. Food is outstanding, although the courses came a little quicker than I would have liked. Places like this are meant to be savored and not rushed. I'm not sure if it was because they have such limited seating or just the normal pace, but when I go to dine at this level, I like a little time between appetizers, salads, and main courses. Nothing overlapped, but very little down time. It was also pretty loud, but it may have been just the large parties seated near us...one 14 top, and two 6 tops. Kind of took away from the possible romantic atmosphere that would have been possible otherwise. I really love the flexibility of the selections mixed between all the small plates, all well presented. We will be back.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first visit won't be our last!My wife an I went to Flight for our 8th wedding anniversary, and we were not disappointed!
After sampling an excellent appetizer, we experienced the "flight" approach to dining. This is a wonderful concept that I have seen in other restaurants, but the difference here is that the portions are comparatively HUGE! I ordered the Chef's Flight, which was Maine Lobster, Chicken and Dumplings and Pork Tenderloin, and my wife had the lobster, along with Stuffed Flounder and the Australian Lamb Chop. Everything was flavorful and of high quality. We completed our meal with a dessert flight of cheesecake, peach cobbler, and a layered cake that was excellent.
My wife and I will definitely return!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI ordered the seafood fightI ordered the seafood fight and found it to b a great choice. My friend ordered an entree portion of the fish which wasn't much more than a flight. But it as good6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMKudos to this Restaurant!I'm in the restaurant business myself so I was surprised that we had not found out about Flight until a few days before my wife and I went to Memphis for the Golf tournament. Of course I previewed a few reviews before making a reservation, my wife and I are quite particular on where we dine as many places we have found lack exceptional customer service. The manager Tony was very accommodating and pleasant. We sat on the second level of the restaurant which provided some privacy and a great view. Our server Sharkira and the support staff were astounding. The meal was equally so and we had a great time sharing the small dishes and the wines, 6 selections each of small entrée dishes and wines. Absolutely wonderful experience. KUDOS to FLIGHT!!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMJulie was excellentWe arrived for reservations for 7pm and was promptly seated. Everyone congratulated us on our anniversary. Our server Juile was excellent. if I had to make one comment to make it would be that we noticed that when the food was served the server describe each meal at other tables but when our food arrived we did not get any desciptions or knives. Julie did return and describe to my husband what was what on his steak flight. Other than that I would say our experience was excellent.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner @ the barWe love Flight it's always fun and active. The food and service are amazing. This time we ate at the bar the bartender and bar staff were great. Loved the martinis and the wine suggestions were spot on! Will I be back? Oh YES every chance I get.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMflight is back!!!!flight has regained it's status as one of the top 4 restaurants in memphis!! the owner was lucky enough to rehire his impressive manager, matthew. matthew and josh, the other manager, run flight like a fine eatery in ny or chicago.
it is a definite must do in memphis, whether you are a tourist, business person or a local.
the bar is surprisingly, a great place to watch sports. where else can you have fine wine, be surrounded by a sophisticated crowd and watch nbs/mlb/nfl, etc?? superb!! it does not hurt that the bartenders are pleasant to "observe", both male and female.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAWESOME!Flight is one of my favorite restaurants. I have eaten there three times, and each time, the service and food were wonderful. It's great for special occasions, and the hosts/hostesses and waiting staff were super friendly and courteous. I love the concept of having the option to order either one full entree or a "flight," smaller portions of three different entrees. You can mix and match your "flight" depending on what you like. This option especially suits indecisive diners. They also have wine "flights" that complement your meal. My husband who ordered the wine "flight" to go with his steak "flight" said that the wine was superb. Overall, Flight offers great food and service. I would definitely recommend Flight to anyone.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!This is the second time we've been to Flight and we absolutely loved it. Their food was terrific, as always, and the service was great. I would recommend Flight to anyone. It's certainly not inexpensive but its worth every bite.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining choiceI ordered items that I would not normally have risked. All good. The waiter was very helpful and professional. It was Chad's first "solo" day. He was great. The best meal that I had in Memphis. Check it out. The dessert choices were excellent. The serving sizes were appropriate. The wine groupings were well thought out6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic concept restaurant!The flights of food and wine made for a wonderful dining experience. Everything was top quality five star! Lauren's service was above and beyond expectations.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time but not lastFirst time to Flight. We are an older couple so the small plates fit us very well. My choices ranged from the raw fish (some call it sashimi) flight to the nicely done red snapper (small dish). The wife had the fried green tomatoes (very good) to the nicely done red snapper. We did indulge in the dessert flight with two out of three items were excellant , the bread pudding was ok, nothing to write home about.
Overall an enjoyable evening.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent. AndThe food was excellent. And although each flight was a sampling of three items, the portions were more than ample.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect foodThe concept was great. Enjoyed every flight we got. Went for our honeymoon and they even gave us complimentary champagne. It started to get a little dark around 8 and the couple next to us had to ask for a flashlight (we were on the second floor). Also, the wine flights gave us the option to try 2 ounces of $40 and $70/bottle wine(the price you'd pay at a wine store, not including restaurant markup) for a decent price. We found 2 cabernets we thoroughly enjoyed that otherwise we would not have known about (Jordan and Caymus). We would definitely go here again if we get the chance. When we went there was a rather large group that kinda killed the romance but they left around dessert so we left on a good note.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Dining ExperienceWe visited for the first time on our wedding anniversary and we were delighted with the experience. The flight concept was new to us (being non-drinkers) and we loved it. Being able to eat different dishes in a category or flight is unique. I had the feathered flight with chicken and waffles, duck and quail. All three were delicious. I finished with the chocolate flight for dessert and it was great as well. The atmosphere was good, the service was outstanding and to top it all off, there was complementary valet parking. The whole experience was fine dining at its best and we definitely will be back.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceIt was our first time at flight. It was also our wedding anniversary and the wait staff was very attentive and engaging. They made us feel we were special guest.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary made specialMy wife and I celebrated an anniversary at Flight recently and the experience was amazing...complementary valet parking, great ambiance, supreme service, and food that was second to none!! We recommend Flight and will definitely will return!!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AManniversaryWe celebrated our anniversary with Flight for the 2nd year and everything again was on point and wonderful. The waitress Julie and waiter Chris were superb. I enjoyed the food. I had the Chef flight and my husband had the chicken and dumplings. We both were very satisfied. We also had the traditional desert flight...great. The wine was really good and they gave us a champagne toast. love love love5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ConceptWhere else can you go and get a sampling of many items on the menu? We ordered a flight of oysters for appetizer, a flight of salads, and different combinations of 'flights' for the main meal, with a flight of wine. We were able to taste a lot of different dishes with just this one meal. It is a great place, great service with great food and atmosphere.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticI took some clients and friends to Flight and it was one of the best meals I've had in years. I had heard people rave about it for years and it definitely lived up to the hype. We got the steak flight with filet, elk and bison sirloin.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFlight was the perfect placeFlight was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. Our waitress, Hallie brought us a glass of champagne to celebrate. She was also very knowledgable on the menu & was able to provide recommendations that were excellent. We both really enjoyed or time at Flight and would recommend it anyone in the area.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic ExperienceCan't say enough how great our experience was at Flight.

I liked the French wine from that group the best!!!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place!We've been to Flight several times. They never disappoint.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Time!I took my girlfriend for her birthday and we both had an amazing time. The Griz were playing downtown with the Sunset Symphony going on and the Redbirds game so downtown was very busy. We arrived a little late due to the traffic and the host was very accommodating and had us in our seats in no time. The view outside was great and the service was even better. The food came out in a timely fashion even with the higher number of patrons that were in the restaurant to watch the game. Our server was very attentive and nice. I will be going back again to try a different flight because the seafood was so good! I know the other meals are just as great!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMy AnniversaryWe had a large group and the server took really good care of us.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMmy new favorite Memphis restaurantHaving worked 25 years in the hotel and Food business and eaten at top notch restaurants all around the country, I was very surprised to find such a great concept restaurant as Flight in Memphis.Not only is it a beautiful place but the concept is well executed with some of the best service we have found in Memphis. Great food, great concept, great service.
To fully enjoy the full experience we suggest that you take advantage of the flight concept for each course and pair it with the flight wines. You too will have a memorable evening as we did for our 26th anniversary.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food served in an interestingGood food served in an interesting concept. Service was much too fast5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMTop 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 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 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 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 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 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.
