One perk this restaurant has is during happy hour, before six, appetizers are half-price. So, one can eat a variety of flavors as a meal.

We wanted to like Flight more than we did. We started with 3 items from the Charcuterie—2 cheeses & salami ($19) & I’m not exaggerating when I say the 2 cheese wedges were the size of 1/2 of a mini Babybel cheese. You could eat each wedge on one piece of mini bread. Some of us enjoyed our wine flights, others did not. The flat bread, again, was very small for the price, as was the Bang Bang Shrimp. The people that ordered entrees said they were ‘good’. The desserts were the highlight & I’d recommend the bread pudding. The service was friendly & attentive and the atmosphere had an urban vibe. Don’t think we’ll be back though.

Had a great experience, had forgotten about the early bird special, and we were delighted. Had all starters for our dinner, and had lots of food to try and enjoyed it all. Loved our waitress, very attentive, and just enjoyed our simple, early dinner, which is what we went for.

We arrived early, and were seated immediately. Our server and the rest of the staff were very polite and professional. The server offered suggestions for dinner, drinks and dessert. She was correct with all her suggestions!
It was a very cold night, but the restaurant was warm, inviting and cozy. The menu is not huge, but still plenty of great choices. They have a full bar and of course, wine. All the drinks we tried were well made and thoughtfully served. It was our first time there, but will certainly be back!

We really love this restaurant. It’s great food every time and the drink selections are fantastic. The decor is beautiful and a great waiters and waitresses. We had the delicious beef skewers appetizer and the ribs. Both were excellent. I had the chicken and my husband had the salmon. We enjoyed both. Our server was great too. I love the wine selection there. Thanks

Flight was great, beautifully decorated for Christmas (but would have good ambiance all year round). Their happy hour was a great value - 1/2 off all (hearty) appetizers, 7 days a week. We were able to make a filling meal out of just appetizers, but the main dishes looked very good. The wine was phenomenal and there were plenty of wine flight options.

Very disappointed in their pricing structure for bourbon. I assume it applies to all liquor but honestly don’t know for sure. For example, Basil Hayden was priced at $10. The bourbon list on the menu was on the top left corner. At the very bottom of the page was a footnote stating “on the rocks” additional $2 and “neat” was also an additional $2. Thus my drink was $12. This price is not out of line with other establishments so I’m not writing this because of the price. Rather writing this because I feel it’s deceitful. I asked the waiter how would I order the drink to get the $10 price and he didn’t have an answer. My point is they should just charge $12. It was very annoying. I will not go back as I don’t like this practice.

Delicious food and wine. Love that bottles sold after a meal, for take home, are 50% off. Retails are high but still a decent value for a fine wine.

A surprisingly good menu with stunning appetizer choices. Very generous cocktails and wine servings. A bit of a disjoint in the runner serving the entre's before we even got 1/2 through the appetizers. Server offered to take back and keep warm which was a bit silly, really. After dinner coffee was watered down, served from a carafe, and not high quality. It became noisy as the night wore on, but tolerable It has a lot going for the restaurant - just need to focus on Service coordination and quality. Apart from that, the Server and Hostess were very friendly.

We had dinner at Flight as it's a place I've always wanted to go. The meal was fine. The menu was fairly limited but the food was good and the quantities were right. Honestly, it wasn't anything special and had a higher price point than what I expected for such a mediocre experience. I was also disappointed that our server seemed to be rushing us through our meal even though we asked up front for a slower pace because we were out for a date night. We had a reservation and the restaurant was busy but it wasn't packed and there were no parties waiting for tables. I was highly disappointed that we were so rushed for no good reason. Overall I thought it was a good place to try once but we probably won't be back for the food. The only thing I thought was truly great was the wine flight! It was well paired and provided exposure to a variety of wines that I haven't tried before but are within the profile of what I generally like. I would definitely come back for another wine flight after the movies or pre/post dinner.

Food was good, however the seating was a mess. Sat more than 30 minutes late, lights were being turned up and down the entire meal, and the bar area was a log jam of drunk people who wouldn’t move so people could get to their tables.
