My husband and I have made Flight our annual Christmas dinner date tradition. While it is pricey, it’s so worth it if you’re planning to splurge. Delicious food, impeccable service, food came quickly after ordering, and a wonderful atmosphere, especially as they have decorated for Christmas. We love this place and we’re already looking forward to our next chance to go.

We took friends to dinner tonight. It was their first visit to Flight and they thought it was fabulous. All 4 of us ate a different menu entree and we were all delighted with our selection. As always, the wait staff was incredible. They are all so well trained and very knowledgeable of the menu. It’s a wonderful place to eat. And the chandelier is beautiful!!

We have eaten at Flight in the past and always enjoyed it. When it came time to pick a special restaurant to celebrate my 75th birthday, it seemed like a good choice. Unfortunately, it was a disappointing experience. We valeted our car and were accosted by a panhandler as we tried to enter the restaurant.

I made the reservation about a week in advance and since we were going on a Sunday night, I didn't think it would be crowded. When we were shown to our table, I was disappointed to see that it was the worst table in the restaurant. It was one of the smallest tables, not really large enough for two adults to have a full dinner, and it was the closest table to the kitchen door so we were treated to servers coming and going throughout our meal. I can't imagine why they chose that table for us when there was an empty four-top right next to us. I wanted to ask to sit there, but we thought they might not allow two people to sit at a table for four, although a woman was sitting alone in a booth large enough for four. When she left before we were served our wine, I wanted to ask to move there, but they seated another couple there almost immediately. The four-top next to us remained empty until we were nearly ready to leave when they seated another couple there. Obviously we could have been seated at that table.

We had an appetizer and I ordered a large salad so I ordered the small plate filet. When it came, it was so tough that I had to saw it to cut it. It was perched on a pile of vegetables and as soon as I tried to cut it, half the vegetables fell on my lap.

Our server provided excellent service. She mentioned my birthday when she greeted us so the restaurant was aware that it was a special occasion. She also brought a complementary crème brulee with a candle in it for dessert. It was one of the smoothest I have ever had and I appreciated that. The restaurant is very noisy so I would not consider it romantic and I would not celebrate another special occasion there.

My friends and I love to travel and find the best spots to eat. This one was one for the books! Great service, food, and experience.

So good we came back for round two on the same trip.

The only thing that would’ve made this experience better would’ve been packing up the restaurant to take back home with me.

Great job!

Flight was one of the best restaurant experiences I have ever had. Additionally, they had the best tasting meal I've ever been served at a restaurant hands down. With prices that are reasonable, and flight portion that are filling, Flight makes for a great night out in downtown Memphis.

I experienced Flight for the first time when celebrating my one year anniversary with my boyfriend. We each tried different items. He sampled the wine and cordials along with a glass of champagne. I didn’t drink but I definitely ate my fill and had a dessert. The Wild Boar tenderloin was by far the best thing I have ever had! The wild berry compote was such a great addition. The loaded mashed potatoes were the perfect consistency and went well with the entire dish. I will definitely be back just for that dish! I also enjoyed finishing with a blueberry streusel. Wonderful evening and wonderful food!

The concept of a “flight” of salads, entree’s, and desserts was so much fun. My husband enjoyed the seafood flight and I had the butcher’s flight of entrees. Everything was so tasty and the presentation of three small plates was interesting and new to us. I would definitely recommend this place. Also it’s in an interest building in downtown.

Flight made my sister's birthday very special, and I didn't even mind climbing the stairs! The selections were plentiful and the value was present on each plate. The beautiful holiday decorations enhanced an already special ambiance. If you know how to order, anyone can afford this really nice restaurant, even if only for special occasions. The free valet parking sealed the deal for me. We will return, and we might not wait for that next special occasion!

Service was amazing. Food was great, as usual. Erin was our server. She was FABULOUS! Beside our table was a woman who had ran the St Jude Half. She was eating by herself and engaging in convo with Erin. Apparently Erin used to a be a runner in HS/college, etc. The lady was asking Erin questions, the convo was 2 sided, for sure. As Erin left her table, her manager approached her, right beside our table and said, "do you know that woman." Erin said she didn't. They were just talking. The manager told her that she needed to watch how much she talked to the lady because it was "borderline questionable." It was awkward to those sitting around. Erin never said anything. Never complained. But her conversation w/ the lady diminished greatly. Super sad. But otherwise....great experience. Great food! Great service and we tipped Erin accordingly!

The "blown away" factor starts with having been recommended to Flight by a previous employee while dining elsewhere. That's right! A former wait staff member serving me at another restaurant recommended that Flight be on our itinerary while in Memphis.
The Flight concept: an entire menu designed for sampling/sharing. When i say the entire menu what I mean is bourbon flights, wine flights, appetizer flights, entree flights AND dessert flights. Plates are larger than most tapas restaurants but smaller than full entrees. Everything is worth trying and sharing. Truly, the whole experience brought my friends and I that much closer together.
Do not miss this place when you are in Memphis!

This was our first visit to Flight. We dined prior to seeing a play at the Orpheum and I cannot recommend Flight highly enough. Service was top notch; our server, Kaleb, was knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. Kaleb made excellent recommendations regarding the menu and was spot on. The food was fantastic. I truly enjoyed the variety of dishes that can be enjoyed with the concept of small portions. The wine flights were equally enjoyable. If you have not been to Flight it should definitely be on top of your list of restaurants to visit.
