We had gone to flight many years ago but found it very expensive, marginal service and the menu lacking choice. Nothing could be further from the truth this time around. The prices were spot on for the tasty meals we had form extensive menu choices and the service was above and beyond what one has gotten used to at most establishments these days. I never say this, but I can’t wait to go back!!

We have been there for happy hour several times on Thursdays, and always thought the food was excellent. This time we were disappointed. The food was not nearly as good.

Loved this dining experience. Only downside was the very small table they had my fiancé and I sitting at. Hard to fit the flight of wine, water glasses and food plates on such a small surface.

Almost perfect!! The staff is fantastic - they are trained well, and seem to really enjoy their jobs! We’ve been twice and some of the best service we’ve had! (Both Times).

Only one minor complaint. They need a double door or revolving door. Every time someone walks in or out, the whole restaurant gets hit with a big cold draft of wind.

Staff seemed rushed and disjointed. The bar was packed with a lot of groups of women. The food was ok. The menu had changed from what was posted on line. The blackened seared tuna was randomly sliced. Some pieces were raw, some charred but not in a good way and the snow peas were swimming in oil.

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
