    There are simply too many other venues in Nashville which do farm to table extremely well; Husk, Watermark, Silo. It took over two hours for our entrees to arrive at the table despite the fact that only half the tables were occupied. The kitchen had obvious problems plating a ten top table at the same time and that resulted in everyone else just waiting idly. The table next to us simply surrendered and left. The malted pear salad actually turned out to be a beet salad with a single tiny pear as a decoration and was horribly overdone and tasteless. When the entrees did arrive, my wife's rare filet was at best medium and my infused chicken was bone dry. Both tasted like something your aunt who can't cook would serve for Sunday dinner.

    We've dined at Flyte many times and have always enjoyed our experience, but our most recent visit was a standout. The only way to say it is that the food here has gone to the next level. Everything was delicious and the presentations were absolutely stunning. I wish I could include a photo with this review to show what my mahi dish looked like! The services was great (as usual) and we enjoyed several interesting wines... but the food stole the show. Bravo, Flyte!

    Service was extremely poor and dissapointing. After speaking with the Manager and making our reservation, we were so excited to experience Flyte. We were beyond let down. It took us 20 minutes to get drinks and there were only 3 full tables in the restaurant. The food was good, but over priced and very small portions. The food would have 'tasted better' had the service matched the prices on the menu. So upset about our dining experience at Flyte, especially since we have wanted to go for over a year, and my family drove from Ohio to go to this restaurant.

    One of two great meals while in Nashville. We were in a rush, so we want to go back when we can be leisurely and savor the food and experience. Still, the food was creative and had a great balance of flavors, textures, and a beautiful presentation. Definitely a great place for foodies!

    Good open space - a bit noisy. Very knowledgeable waitress - but painfully slow service. Despite only 5 tables active, we waited about 45 minutes between first and second courses. Food labeled imaginatively - but pretty bland. Had a "signature" dish - beef filet with squid ink focaccia - the latter hard and dull - reminiscent of very refried beans but with less flavor. Has a ways to go to get in shape.

    Plus side: waitress knew the menu inside and out and recited the whole thing (didn't leave out the details about the "head and shoulders, knees and toes" dish either - yikes). Great wine and beer list. Neat bar, superb bartender. Down side: excessive wait for food, inability to be flexible on the menu (no salad greens AT ALL in the entire restaurant?) and so fixated on the farm-to-table aspect that they've forgotten that it is also important to prepare dishes that taste good! If you are charging over $25 for an entree it needs to be out of this world, in my opinion. Steak was tough, scallops chewy and all around the table was blandness. Really hoping for a better experience at such a foodie place.

    Flyte was our favorite restaurant and we always had the best food and service. However, we went Saturday night not realizing Matthew was no longer the executive chef. The food is not the same and I was missing all of the special elements that Matt put on the plate. The food service took forever. We waited an hour for our entrees. That never happened in the last two years of eating there. I cant say how dissappointed we were to find out our favorite restaurant is no longer the same.

    The food here was pretty good, but not great. We thought that there would be ample options for wine flights to try (hence the restaurant name), but there were surprisingly few. The only California reds flight featured premium wines, and they wanted $26 for three 2-oz. pours! Even the regular wine list is just okay - nothing to write home about. Don't waste your time and money here - too many other great restaurants in Nashville!

    We arrived at 5pm. The restaurant was empty. We were the first to get our orders in and one of last to get our food. People at surrounding tables seemed to be getting food and good service when we weren't. Food took too long. We were left without water for a period and we were left alone by our server often. The food was tasty but the smallest portion ever for the price. They did bring a free dessert which was nice but not anything special. It was our anniversary dinner so we were especially unimpressed. Won't be coming back or recommending it.

    We went to this restaurant with high expectations after reading some praising reviews elsewhere. The experience was utterly disappointing. After waiting close to two hours for our main dishes, we found them quite unsatisfying. The lamb was way overcooked and dry. The grits were bland and overpriced for the small portion served. The fish was fine but not special. We were to tired of sitting to order dessert. Not planning to come back.

    The food was as excellent as it was the last time we dined here so the new chef seems equally as creative. The big hitch was service. We had the same waiter and he was as competent as before except he was working the entire restaurant with only minimal help from two obviously new and untrained waitresses. When our entrée arrived the waiter was busy at another table with a larger party and the server just plopped two dishes on the table with no explanation about the dished, no attempt to fill empty wine glasses, but worse no flatware. We had to wait quite a while to attract someone's attention just to get a knife and form. Very disappointing!

    Waited 1 hr 45 min between appetizer and entree. Waitress told us 45 min before entrees arrived that they were on way out in just a moment. She then disappeared for next 40 min. Had to ask if she could give us some bread. Oddly, as we realized how long we'd been waiting, we looked around full restaurant and saw there was only one table that had any food on it. Fish stew and poached egg appetizers we had before long wait were delicious and beautifully prepared. Grits and lamb entrees were good; steak was less than mediocre and overpriced. Waitress did provide unsolicited free dessert, having realized the unacceptable length of our wait for main course, and it was outstanding. Won't return to Flyte until they've worked out the kinks.

    Food, wine, and service were amazing. I had a vegetarian entrée and loved it, despite the fact I rarely eat vegetables. Starters were wonderful, as well, and service was great from beginning to end. Only downside (which is not the fault of the restaurant) was the dining room full of sloppy diners constantly on their phones and wearing clothes more appropriate for fishing or painting your deck than enjoying first-rate cuisine. Unfortunately, this is a malady everywhere these days. Look forward to my next visit.

    Every item we ordered was wonderful, service was great too. Wine list could be above many people's heads, but the wine flight options are nice to try several wines and be be overwhelmed by the wine list. The food portions were not huge, but every bite was perfect so no complaints here. We ordered the squash salad with a fried goat cheese ball and beet salad, the pork loin and the vegetable entree.

    I took my wife to Flyte for her birthday and I happened to mention this fact on the online reservation in advance--we were greeted with two glasses of complimentary sparkling wine to start our meal! Excellent! Try to get Scott to be your waiter because he is patient, attentive, and he knows their extensive wine list like the back of his hand. He helped us match our wines with our appetizers and meals without a trace of pretentiousness. The wines we enjoyed were complex in their bouquet as well as their flavor--and the same can be said for the meal. While the menu is not as extensive as some other restaurants, even dishes that may at first appear mundane turn out to be little masterpieces--multi-layered flavors, superb presentation

    We were curious why it had taken us so long to visit Flyte and took the opportunity to find out during restaurant week. Unfortunately, our traditional favorite, Caffe Nonna, never made good on their blunder from last year, so here we were. Staff were exceptionally friendly, though the bartender forgot a spirit substitution on the an otherwise very well made drink. Food parings were different and interesting and made for a great conversation with wine at dinner...I encourage them to add more blends to their wine list. What they did have was great. Overall, a great special evening!

    I received an email about wine and food week from Flyte. We decided to try it. We ordered the 3 course food week menu. I had the carrot soup and trout. He had the beats and steak. Everything was wonderful. We traded plates half way through and when my husband tried the trout he was in heaven. He is a long time fisherman and has cleaned and cooked many trout himself. He was amazed at how the kitchen was able to remove the skeleton of the fish and keep it intact on the plate. He said this was quite possibly the BEST TROUT he has ever eaten. We finished with a goat cheese cheesecake. Neither one of us are usually goat cheese fans however this cheesecake was fabulous! Thank you for a lovely evening.

    Our trip to Flyte was nothing short of spectacular. From the ambience, food, and service, everything was on point. The menu is locally sourced and seasonal but I recommend the trout entree. The fish was cooked perfectly and sat on a bed of delicious braised cabbage. My date got the charcuterie platter and accompanied it with the cheese platter. There was an assortment of jams, mustard and picked veggies to help create all kinds of yummy meat and cheese combinations. The service was superb from beginning to end. We were celebrating that evening and Flyte generously gifted us two glasses of champagne upon arrival. We sipped on the 2010 Cavalchina - "Santa Lucia" bottle of wine. It was a perfect dining experience.
