We had a wonderful meal and such a great experience. The only complaint is that we ended up ordering a lovely bottle of wine to share after having a flight of wine to taste. Due to our own fault, we did not ask how much the bottle was and it was extremely expensive. We wish the server had mentioned this to us as we were ordering it. The food was delicious the ambiance was wonderful and we enjoyed everything so much. It was just a bit disappointing that our server did not think to tell us about the price of the wine we ordered and we were grateful we shared and could afford the bill. Buyer beware of the pricing of certain bottles of wine.

Great place for people who can’t make up their mind - being able to try three different “dinners” in one order! Amazing flavors and artistic presentation made our dining experience truly memorable! Our server, Brendan, was super friendly; he was able to answer all our questions and helped guide us to make excellent choices. We hope to come back to Memphis again soon to experience this place all over again!

My wife and I went to Flight for her birthday. Our first time to visit. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted by so many enthusiastic employees. We felt welcome. The staff is amazing. Always attentive. Not just our server James, but everyone. Since this was our first visit, we were unfamiliar with the ingenious way the restaurant works and how you order. James was very patient with us, explaining in detail. It was fun, and you will have to go for yourself to experience not only the great selection of food, but also the fun. This was a great couple's night out. Great wine selection also. We will return soon.

We are not fancy diners. We have visited Flight 3 times for very special occasions in our family. I never feel out of place here, the food is exquisite, and the service is friendly, not pushy. Our favorites are elk, blueberry strudel, and wine flights! We get lost here for hours just talking and enjoying a meal together. What a gem!

Always amazing. Atmosphere everything. Got there really early for our reservation. Hoping to grab a place at the bar or not. In waiting we were offered a complimentary drink because no place at the bar or a table at 6 pm. Very nice. Sat at a table until reservation came. Left for a walk and came back to our reserved table. Couldn’t have been any nicer.

What a unique find. EVERYTHING on the menu can be ordered as a flight, not just the wine! Salads, appetizers, entrees, everything! We ended up doing two different flights, a salad flight, and then two full entrees. My grouper was delicious, and my friend's salad and shrimp entree both received two thumbs up. If you're in downtown Memphis, you've definitely gotta give this place a look!

The staff called the morning of our appointment and offered to sit us in the wine cellar due to our date night. It was very nice and a great atmosphere. Very nice touch. The food was amazing! We were in town visiting for the weekend and this dinner was one of the highlights of the trip. I’ll be talking about this meal for a while. It is a splurge so know that going in but it’s worth the expense.

It was nearly impossible to have a discussion as background chatter was very loud. Menu was excellent and so was the food and service. I just wouldn't be able to recommend it as a viable option for business meals where conversations are the main reason for the reservation.

We were in Memphis for a few days and called I not Flights twice, once for drinks only and then for a meal. The service on both occasions was excellent (Caleb was a great server) and the approach to serving wines and meals in "flights" of, for example, three related wines is innovative and good fun.

Went here for our anniversary. The steak, oysters, and wine flights I had were excellent. My few criticisms are that on the menu, specific bourbons are listed as being part of the Award Winning flight, but when my husband ordered it, 2 of the 3 samples delivered were not bourbons listed as being a part of that flight (we did bring this up to the waiter who said it must have been an old menu). Additionally, one of the desserts we ordered was described on the menu as a chocolate chip cookie souffle. Whomever wrote this menu has apparently never eaten a souffle, because it's certainly not an overbaked muffin-shaped cookie. Otherwise, our food was delicious.
