Diner Reviews
  • "The food and service was phenomenal the booth seats were a little warm."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Relaxing outdoor seating and good for people-watching. Good inventive, ever-changing menu. Good cocktails. Terrific ahi tuna appetizer and good skirt steak flatbread."

  • "I have been to this restaurant twice and thoroughly enjoyed it both time. The second time however was in the winter and because the restaurant is small and we had a group they placed us by the front door and it was freezing. The door opens right into the restaurant and they put up a curtain but that will not hold back the brutal weather of Chicago from coming in. So we asked to be moved once a table large enough opend up. My only suggestion is to come up with something better for next winter."

  • "5 stars always! Husband Tried the pork belly risotto on special and it was a hit! Always very fresh ingredients! Love this place!!"
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "My lady friend and I sat at a table and each had a flight of wine. Very good overall. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and shared. The creme brulee was very good and I'm not a dessert person. But she is. Good place to go, we're looking forward to sitting outside when the weather warms up. "
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "One, I cannot tolerate their music. It is just an annoying deep beat. Fake and horrible. Flight is not what it was way back."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Our server was fantastic! He was funny, friendly, and diligent. He made excellent recommendations! The flatbreads are worth a try!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "My friends and I love going to Flight. The atmosphere is "casual nice", but feels more elegant with the fireplace and somewhat dim lighting. When we go out to dinner, it's to catch up, talk and laugh and this a wonderful restaurant in which to do that. The noise level is perfect, in that we can hear each other, but not the people sitting right next to us. It's a great place for friends to go as well as those on a date."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Would not hesitate to return...meal, wine, service....all excellent...."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "While Flight has a nice wine list, the food and service make it a less than desirable for more than a glass of wine. The food is good, not great. We were there on a Saturday night and the service was mediocre. Our server was not knowledgeable about wine and did not seem to be attuned to pairings, or for that matter, the complete menu. It was not until midway through our meal when we happened to look up and noticed that there were evening specials. Here's a hint -- avoid the "full glass" of wine. It costs twice as much as a half glass and offers maybe an ounce or two more. The atmosphere is pleasant -- but if we return, it will be for a glass of wine only."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Service is what dining out is all about. Our server was not to be found anywhere. I actually had to go into the kitchen after waiting 30min for the check. I was disappointed."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The cocktails are phenomenal there and Justin and the team give their all, with a 5 star service. Also recommendations were great - fish tacos, cheese plate, tuna app, burger flight, crème brulee."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "We hadn't been back to this restaurant for a few years and after eating remembered. We ordered wine which was overpriced for the quality served- ordered 5 different appetizers all of which were totally nondescript."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Great for wine. The trouble is that the food is very inconsistent and the service is outrageously slow. This is definitely not a place that I would revisit."
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "I guess after moving from the city we were expecting a bit more here....perhaps unrealistic. Food was pretty good, not a huge selection but adequate. The wine selection was large and of good quality. The ambiance in the dining room is lacking though....love the decor and fireplace, but a flat screen and the bright lighting were interesting choices that kill any sort of romantic or "city-like" restaurant vibe. The bar was full and had a lively vibe and good service/selection. They have a couple large booths/tables that were occupied by groups that seemed to work well....looks like a good place to get a group together for a nicer night out."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "We had a flight of wine, which we always enjoy. Rather than ordering a meal we chose to share items from the extensive appetizer options. The food, wine, service & ambience were all great."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "This place is great little find. Wine list is wonderful and try their Flight wines which is a sample of three signature wines. Bar is extensive and food options are limited but very good. Service was friendly. Would go back again!"
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "We've been going to Flight since it opened. Alittle confused when the menu is constantly changing but the food is always outstanding. This time, however, our service was terrible. The waiter was bad. Our entree came to the table in the middle of our salad. Our coffee came as our desserts were finished. We'd go back for the food as long as we didn't get that waiter. I will say thank you for the after dinner drink since we complained."
    Dined on 11/22/2013
  • "I've been here several times and the food and wine flights are fantastic!!! Always very happy with location, service, food and drinks!!!"
    Dined on 10/18/2013
  • "Very small portions although quality is OK. Hit or miss service. Poor ambiance. I was expecting a better experience from an Open Table restaurant."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "We had a table for four on a Friday night. Our appetizers were very good. The entrees were split. The chicken and steak were good. The salmon entree was overcooked and almost inedible for one of our guests. We have eaten here more than a few times. This was the first time that all the food wasn't very good. We would return to try again, but are not in a hurry."
    Dined on 10/25/2013
  • "The crab cakes were smelly and undercooked. The salted was both wilted and brown at the edges. The salmon was rubbery and the pasta was boring."
    Dined on 10/12/2013
  • "Poor Service - Staff was young and inexperienced Wine selection was poor, in my opinion Room was too bright"
    Dined on 10/4/2013
  • "It used to be a good place. Now terrible! Service was BAD, food just OK."
    Dined on 9/28/2013
  • "The restaurant decor is nice and the service was very good. The waiter was attentive but not overbearing. We never felt rushed and the waiter was very responsive to our requests. A very pleasant evening. Admittedly, I think the lighting could have been slightly dimmer."
    Dined on 9/21/2013
  • "My husband and I dine here many times a year. Love the ambiance! My favorite is the cedar planked salmon paired with Chardonnay flight. Don't miss the bread pudding!"
    Dined on 9/20/2013
  • "Although the restaurant was almost empty, the hostess seated us in the middle of the room despite our request for a booth. Then, it took almost 10 minutes before our server approached us; in fact, we would have left in another 2 minutes. The food was good but the portions small, particularly the tuna entrée. We have eaten at Flight before and have had better experiences. We seriously doubt whether we will reurn."
    Dined on 9/14/2013
  • "I was impressed with Flight - the ambiance and decor were delightful. The staff was friendly. The food was delicious and I am a huge fan of the wine flight concept. All that being said, it is quite pricey but well worth it for a special occasion."
    Dined on 8/17/2013
  • "Very expensive. ($14.00) for an over cooked hamburger which my wife ordered med. Chicken much too lemony. Potatoe wedges also overcooked & dry."
    Dined on 8/14/2013
  • "Appetizers are terrific. Very flavorful and just the right amount. Wine and Champaign were perfectly paired with our food order. And our after dinner drink Cointreau was the perfect finish to our dining experience. Love this place!"
    Dined on 8/10/2013
  • "Great place to meet friends& have delicious wine & great food."
    Dined on 8/3/2013
  • "enjoyed the wine flights and thought the food was good. based on other options in the Glen, this is one to keep on the list when you don't seek a rowdy bar scene."
    Dined on 7/13/2013
  • "We are happy with the summer menu, a great wine selection, lovely outdoor dining spot."
    Dined on 7/13/2013
  • "I was just expecting more. I also would have appreciated the server not only calling our attention to the specials, but read them and describe each item. There was nothing on the menu that would say "worth coming back for."
    Dined on 6/29/2013
  • "We decided to go here for a casual anniversary dinner. It had been a while since we last had dinner here and noticed that they had pared back their menu, which may allow them to focus on the dishes they do really well, because the dishes we selected were excellent. We like to share the small plates, so we started out with the Shrimp Tempura and Crab Cake Sliders, which were fantastic and finished it off with a recommended skirt steak flatbread. The restaurant also made a very recommendation for a wine that we enjoyed."
    Dined on 6/27/2013
  • "We went to celebrate my mother's birthday and have dinner on a Tuesday evening at 6:00pm. The restaurant side had 3-5 other tables full, but for the most part the place was empty. The wine options are great, and the restaurant offers delicious flights of wine. The food tastes good, but you won't get a lot of it. There was one thing that was disappointing; while I wrote in the description that we were celebrating a birthday, no mention of it was made. It's not enough to get upset about, but it is worth noting should you consider having a birthday celebration here."
    Dined on 6/25/2013
  • "Wow, this place has changed a lot. Gone is the extensive wine list for flights and pairings. Now you get a small list of wine on brown grocery bag paper. Also the starter list shrunk. Seems like new owners? The salmon was good but the steak was tough. not the same place."
    Dined on 6/21/2013
  • "I took my family (wife and two kids 11 and14) to Flight on a Saturday evening and was very impressed by the food and wine selection. I had been there a while back with my wife and thought the food to be mediocre and the price way too high for the quality. I don't know if they have changed ownership or chef, but we had a fantastic meal at a very reasonable price. They had nice small plates to make my youngest happy. My wife had the Amish chicken which was very well done, my daughter had the Duck Mac which was super heavy for me but delicious. I had the Filet Mignon and it was cooked perfectly and was quite tasty. They have too many wines to go into the list but it is quite extensive and there is a glass, flight or bottle for any budget."
    Dined on 6/8/2013
  • "We recently dined at your restaurant. Very noisy restaurant. Difficult to have a conversation. Ordered several appetizers including a tuna dish that were superb. However, the flat bread flank steak was ordered med rare and came well done. Bread was almost burnt. We advised our server of the problem and he apologized, but did not offer to replace or take it off the bill. Perhaps we should have pushed harder. The wine list was extensive, but the Malbec was corked.. Overall, see no reason to go again with all the other choices in the area."

  • "We had the cheese and charcuterie selection and as a special occasion (my birthday) a chocolate fondue which was fabulous!"
