    OMG, where do I start. My wife and I walked in the door and gave my name, the host looked it up and right way "Happy Anniversary". We sat at the bar to wait for our table to be ready. The bartender made my wife a bloody mary, and she loved it. Host was now ready to walk us to our table and again wished us a happy anniversary. Waiter came to our table and wished us a happy anniversary. Asked if we had dined here before, we said no. He Explain how our dining experience will go. It was a very pleasant experience. We will definitely be in there again! Thank you 😊.

    The waiter promised a Birthday dessert at the end of the meal. He went MIA on us until we finally had to find him to get the check to the show on time. My friends kept having to ask him for more tea and water instead of him asking them. By the close of the meal, they were completely empty with nothing to drink. By the time we paid had to run to make the show! No dessert to celebrate and made us a bit stressed to make our commitment.

    Our server was charming, attentive, and efficient. The buttermilk oysters were the best! My ahi tuna entre was perfectly cooked and just the right amount. My partner's osso buco was also perfectly cooked and wonderful. Our pre-dinner cocktails were delicious. Overall, this was one of our best dining experiences this year. Highly recommended!

    I cannot remember a meal that I enjoyed more than the one I was served at Flight Restaurant and Wine Bar. I was most impressed with the extensive menu of small plates with most of them offered in paired flights of three, although you can order any individual small plates of your liking. I expected an extensive wine list and was not disappointed. The regular menu flights also include the name of the chef's recommended wine flight to pair with the dishes. I have one dietary restriction and the staff was most accommodating, even preparing a crabcake as an appetizer to avoid the ingredient my system does not tolerate. My trio (a chef's daily special) included Kangaroo, Filet Minon with Lobster Tail and Wagyu Carpaccio. One of the chefs came to the table to arrange the filet and lobster disk. I savored every single bite. The menu did not have a recommended wine flight, but the waiter instantly agreed with the one I suggested. I had the Wonders of the World flight of Catena Malbec, Sassoregale Sangiovese and Molly Dooker Boxer Shiraz. I should not have been surprised at how well the Shiraz paired with the Kangaroo, both being from Australia. I could joke and say the Kangaroo had a kick to it, but it blended so well wth the cabbage served with it and the Shiraz that it was simply heavenly.
