Flight Restaurant & Wine Bar - Memphis Ratings and Reviews
Have been many previous times. Food is consistent and there are no surprises. Overall, I like the food and although the salads lack variety they are enjoyable. Similarly, the main flights are essentially established appealing dishes, without much variance over the last many years. But, its a safe place to take a guest (particularly if they are from out of town and haven't eaten at Flight before). The noise level downstairs is consistently way too high.
We made a reservation on a Sunday afternoon evening only an hour before arriving. When we arrived, a bit early, we were warmly greeted and offered a few seating options, even though it was pretty much a full house. We chose one of the high top tables in the bar area.
Drew, one of the bartenders, provided excellent service, explaining the menu (many of the offerings are ‘flights’), taking our orders and serving our beverages. My spouse ordered a fish flight and I had a seafood flight. Both were excellent; flavorful, well prepared and presented.
Overall, we were very impressed. Highly recommended.
We loved the concept of "flights" of wine, food, and dessert. A really great way to eat a little or eat a lot, trying different menu items and wine. Our waiter went out of his way to please us. Definitely a place we will come back to and recommend to our friends visiting Memphis.
Our evening at Flight was excellent. We enjoyed the atmosphere, the service and the creative menu. Our only annoyance was that they called and confirmed the reservation, then called again a half hour before to see if we were on our way. We thought that was unnecessary since we had already confirmed.
Love Flight! It had been a couple years since my last visit after moving from downtown. Our server Chris was awesome and even brought us champagne to celebrate our anniversary. It was a chilly night so their patio was covered and heated but we had great views of downtown while we dined. We both mixed and matched our choices so we got to sample 6 different dishes. All were amazing! We’ll definitely be back soon.
Staff is wonderful! Food was excellent! One of the best restaurants in Memphis. I wish that they would expand, reservations can be problematic, but worth the wait. Our favorite place to visit when staying downtown. Check it out , you won't be disappointed!!!!! Five stars!!!!
The food and concept was great. Our selections were wonderful and seasonal. Wine selection was vast. our server (Stuart) was knowledgeable and had great suggestions on not just the cuisine/wine at Flight but of local area and hot spots. Would certainly go again next time in Memphis.
Simply one of the best dining experiences I have had in a very long time. Choose a listed flight of wine or customize one of your own. Choose a single entree, a listed food flight or customize one of your own.
Wonderful wine list, great food with healthy portions (if you order a food flight, be hungry!). Everything was amazing. If I lived in Memphis I would be a frequent visitor!
Go to Flight!
Flight is a snobs delight. If you like being treated like you don't matter, then make a reservation at this restaurant and watch the number of people they seat whom don't have a reservation while they make you wait because it's not your time. Then they seat you 20 minutes after your reservation time because they don't have room.
Next you have a flight of waiters who don't know what each other are doing so your meals come out wrong. When we all finally got our food, it was good, not spectacular. The place was loud and they acted like it was supposed to be our honor to eat their. I wouldn't recommend because of the attitude from the hostess to the waiters. They all have it and they can all keep it.
We stayed in Memphis overnight on our way to and from Dallas for a wedding. We happened upon Flight on our trip down to Texas and were able to get a last minute reservation. It was one of the best restaurants we have eaten in. So good that we went back on our way home. Our server, Chris Abbott, was excellent. Everything was great - the food, the service, the ambience, the wine. I highly recommend it, but you definitely need reservations!
From the complimentary valet parking through to the dessert flight with an excellent Port, my wife and I had a fantastic dining experience at Flight. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for excellent food, outstanding service, and a unique dining adventure.
I can't review Flight more highly! This is most definitely the best restaurant we have been to in the USA by far! We are on our honeymoon in Australia and were greeted by the lovely staff. When we sat down, Stewart, (the best waiter in USA), greeted us with a glass of champagne for our honeymoon!! It was such a lovely treat for the start of a fantastic evening.
We decided to have two flights of wine and our own choice of flights of food, which Stewart happily helped us choose! He was brilliant! The wine was great, the food was amazing and the overall vibe of the restaurant was fantastic!!
The most memorable moment was when I asked Stewart to make me an affogato, a dessert not known to the restaurant. He was more than happy to go to extra lengths just to make this happen and it was amazing!! His constant check ins were well appreciated and overall I believe our experience at this restaurant would not have been nearly as good without his charisma and service!!
We could not rate this restaurant more highly and will definitely come back to Memphis just to visit and definitely tell all friends about it!!
Thanks to all the staff at Flight and especially Stewart who was amazing!!
Thank you all very much

Get ready to take FLIGHT
After calling first, the restaurant said they'd be able to accommodate us earlier than our reservation time. We were seated quickly upstairs and soon greeted by our delightful server Nicolas who asked if we were celebrating an occasion, and then served complimentary champagne for our anniversary. The menu offers a tasting of three dishes in each category (fish, poultry, meat, etc.) One can choose the trio, choose one as a larger entree, or mix and match from the different categories.
We started with a delicious seafood gumbo. My wife got the seafood flight and I mixed mine from the steak flight and the butcher's flight.
Our dessert flight included an apple walnut cobbler, pecan chocolate pie, and bananas foster bread pudding.
EVERYTHING WAS DELICIOUS!
Much of the staff is young. All were so pleasant and courteous. Good training and hiring are evident here and much appreciated. Although pricey, this is the kind of restaurant we'd like to visit more often. Too bad we live more than 1300 miles away!
