A word from Flights Wine and Coffee - A Wine Cafe
A wine experience set in an 1870's cottage with leather seating and fireplaces for the winter and gardens with a fire pit and water features for the warmer evenings. Over 100 wines on the bottle list and 40 by the glass, 65% imported and 35% domestic. Try a flight of wine ( our namesake ) which is a great way to compare varietals, regions and winemakers. Tapas / Light Eats menu that features Caprese flatbread as well as cheese, hummus, antipasti and carving plates. An evening wouldn't be complete without desserts and french press coffee.

    Always a nice stop for a glass of wine or two. Scattered throughout the "yard" are cozy spots to sit outside and enjoy the Colorado weather. There are enough umbrellas to make a drizzle or two a non-event. We had the baked brie with cranberries and the tomato pesto flatbread. They were a good choice to accompany our wine.

    I was very disappointed in our last visit. The noise level from the "entertainment" made conversation impossible and we were seated in a different room from the performer. No need for sound amplification in such a small space. The service was very poor: reservation was not recognized initially, menu was out of date making our original selection unavailable. Food when it finally arrived was just OK. Overall, not worth going back.

    If you enjoy wine and would enjoy being able to sample different ones, paired with some really yummy tapas, you'll enjoy this funky little restaurant - It was cold the night we were there and couldn't sit outdoors, but they do have a nice outdoor patio that would most enjoyable on a beautiful Colorado evening.

    Prefect little outdoor seating area that was cozy and quite. Great food. Knowledgeable staff that help choose wines you'll love from their extensive wine list. A perfect place to get away from the standard hectic restaurant and take a minute to actually enjoy gourmet food paired nicely with a great wine.

    We didn't eat any food, only drank wine. I spent a pleasant evening here. There was a very limited choice of wines served by the glass and the menu wasn't as extensive as I expected. Our server was very kind, however not as knowledgeable about the wine as I would have hoped. The ambiance is nice - we sat on the back patio. It was a good place for our mini book club meeting, but I don't know that I will make a point of going back.

    We were looking for a place to meet friends and get a bite to eat before a concert at Red Rocks. Theoretically, this would have been the perfect spot. Unfortunately, the place is not easy to find and parking in Morrison can be a real challenge. The service was friendly but exceedingly slow. We waited for everything. The antipasto platter we ordered when we first arrived, never came. Perhaps they forgot about us as we were on a seperate patio. The menu is limited to small plates, but the various crostini plates we ordered were very good. This would be a great place to come if you just wanted to kick back and linger over a glass of wine or cup of coffee. I would definitely try it again, but not on the way to a concert.

    Dined on 7/7/2013
    Had a reservation prior to a Red Rocks concert. Was looking forward to some good wine and light food. I walked in and was told to grab a table outside and they would bring out some waters and menus right away. There were 4 or 5 tables occupied in the restaurant at this time and I counted 3 guys working. My wife and I sat down and waited 5...10...15 minutes and no one came outside. There was one table next to us that had water and menus, but no one came to help them either. At this point, we got up and walked out and ended up at the Morrison Inn. Not exactly what we were looking for, but better than putting up with this service for our whole meal.

    First time to Flights and thoroughly enjoyed it. If you are looking for yuppie & pretentious, this is not your place. Wonderfully laid back and enjoyable locale with casual small plates to munch. Wine list is not extensive, but excellent selections to enjoy independently or with the light menu items. Flights good way to sample new wines. Food was great for what it is - light fare. Excellent assortment of apps, cheeses, dried and carved meats. Had some interesting sounding paninis, but we did not partake. Good french press coffee and dessert options, but the creme brulee was a soupy. Service is casual, but knowledgeable and genuinely caring. Relaxing atmosphere, not rushed at all. Enjoyed the fare and locale. Will go again.

    Went for 5280. Had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the wine flights and the staff's knowledge of wine. Lovely and quaint atmosphere. A little disappointed with the food or lack of food for the 5280 deal. Very small bites for the price. Also on their website's 5280 menu it stated that dessert was included but we were told by the staff it was not. We ordered dessert anyway (paid for it outside of the 5280 deal) and it was incredible!! Was absolutely amazing with the wine we had! Looking forward to going back for a glass of wine with friends!

    I was not impressed with the Oscar Meyer assortment of "tapas" that was served at the price of $52.80. Plates that were reminiscent of a preschooler's lunch arranged with low-quality deli ingredients is not something I find comparable to even be in the same league as the other establishments participating in Denver Restaurant Week. To top it all off, the $9 additional creme brulee tasted like fish! Unacceptable.

    Flights was a very cozy, unique place to dine. My fiance and I went for a belated Valentines Day dinner. The place is very small and has a very unique atmosphere consisting of essentially a remodeled house with the dining area being formally the living room and the bar formally the family room. We had the table next to the fake fireplace which was different. The server I'm sure was the owner and was very nice and knowledgeable about the wines we selected. The problem I have is that the food was nothing special. Hummus, cheese, turkey, ham, sugar snap peas, and baby carrots was essentially the entire meal. Like I said, it was good, but I could have made the dinner at home for FAR less then what I paid.

    Expensive! The food feels more like school lunch than upscale restaurant. $9 for a panini on Orowheat with 5 baby carrots as a side? $7 for 1/2 cup hummus that was supposed to be served with apples, artisan bread, carrots, snap peas, and crackers? And we had to ask for the apple and bread, which turned out to be buttered and warmed strips of tortilla or flat bread. Also, it was $10 for a glass of wine, when I could buy the bottle at a store for $13. Not worth it!

    When we pulled up to flights, I thought "what a quaint little place". Sadly, we didn't have a very good experience at all. We had made a reservation on Open Table for 5pm a few days before we came in, so you would think they would have been aware that a party of 5 was coming by. We sat down and ordered some fruit juices and/or chocolate milk for our sons to drink...the waitress came back a few minutes later saying they were out of both options...and basically only had strawberry kiwi juice to drink. Then we were about to place a food order when we were told that they were not serving ANY food that evening other than the salami/cheese appetizer as they had a party of 30 people coming in and the chef wasn't able to handle anything else.

    I think our expectations were somewhat different that what was delivered. That's not necessarily a bad thing just that we hadn't spent a lot of time researching in advance so didn't know what to expect. So it's probably important to have a good picture of what to expect in advance (you're reading this so good start I'd say) Flights is an old house that has been converted into a wine and tapas cafe. with great patio areas outdoor dining this summer will be great Some of the wines were very good, others we found to be average Food was a little of the same, a bit hit and miss Hummus was a good dish to share and we enjoyed the pork Service was very good for a laid back night this could be exactly what you're looking for
