Great food and great wine. I have been to Flight before and it has always been great. One downside, the hostess seemed to be rushing us out. She would walk by our table frequently while we were finishing up.

I really want to love this restaurant. The food is superb. We had a great waiter, however there was a few missteps that would turn this restaurant from good to great. They served us way too fast. We weren't done with our first course before they brought the second course. They took our wine away without asking if we were done and before I was done drinking it. They were turning over tables every 15 to 20 minutes and rushing people in and out of there. I guess they can because they were so busy. Also they have no glass or partition when you walk in, just a curtain and it was very cold when anyone walked in and we were sitting very far from the door.
My husband also said the urinal was broken in the bathroom. I guess when I notice a restaurant is successful, I expect these little things to be better.

A bit loud but my friend is just a quiet talker. Delicious food, great variance in the menu but not too overwhelming to decide what to get. Cozy, intimate and lots of fun.

The food and service were outstanding. Scallops were perfect and burger was flavorful and scrumptious. Table was wedged against a half glass wall and I was uncomfortable. Next time I will wait or ask for another table. Only negative thing for me.

Wine prob was opened a while ago,. The server was awful. I order a burger but due to allergies I couldn’t have their fries. So I asked him if I can substitute with other side and he said sure. Then when it was a time to pay he charged me 6 $ for the side. So basically my burger wrapped in lettuce with piece of bacon in it (no ketchup , mayo, cheese nothing else ) with different side cost over 20$ !!! I can have a burger for this price or even less at the steakhouse. So I did complain and the manager solved the issue. Def not coming back

Restaurant is a basic variety. In past years, the menu had been more creative & has morphed into a typical bar food selection list.
I had the chicken francaise with roasted potatoes & green beans. The chicken & potatoes were prepared very well. However, adding pepper flakes to the beans overpowered the other items. Simply buttering the beans would have been a better presentation.
Service was attentive.

One of our favorite restaurants at the Glen. We end up coming here either weekly or bi-weekly with our kids or just on the date. Always a pleasure to come here. Love the ambience.

Food great as always. Worst service we have had and have been many times. 12 minutes before someone took our drink order. We ordered our appetizers at the same time which came out before our drinks. These were hot appetizers mind you, 11 minutes for drinks, the restaurant wasn't full. 23 minutes from the time we were seated until we got our drinks. Watched other tables that were sat after us receive drinks and place their dinner orders before someone came to get a drink order. May only return for happy hour.

Definitely a "neighborhood gem;" excellent service, pleasant atmosphere, conversation-friendly. We loved the scallops and fish taco small plates; and the beet salad was very good. In my opinion, this is the best restaurant for couples and friends in the Glen.

Our dining experience was one to remember for me because I was not careful chewing my food and started to choke. Not the restaurant's fault.

A word of caution, just check your bill very carefully. We were about to be charge the wrong price for our wine when I questioned our server. She had it corrected and stated that it was a problem with their system pricing. Wine prices were high and this would have made it more expensive. They did correct my bill.

The hostess thoughtfully worked to put us at a table where we could watch the Cubs game, as we requested, which we really appreciated. All of us were able to order something we were excited about (there were enough choices). We all enjoyed our food and wine/cocktails, although we thought the wine and flights were a bit overpriced for the amount we got. Loved having a bottle of water at the table throughout the meal. We enjoyed the atmosphere and will definitely return.

Best food at the Glen. We enjoyed a number of appetizers, small plates and salads plus nice wine. The service was great & food was REALLY GOOD ! WE'll do it again and would recommend it -- mostly for adults. We saw a couple coming in with a toddler as we left, not sure it would suit young children.

Great experience outside on what had to be one of the best nights of the year so far. Susie was a terrific waitress, and the service from the whole crew was ideal. Loved the spinach salad with fresh mozarella was outstanding and the preparation and presentation of the scallops was among the best I have had.
