    Nothing but great things to say about this gem hiding in the middle of a bustling city! The service is impeccable and the selection of wine is top notch. 800+ wines and the bottles are for sale to take home which we did. Will be returning as soon as we come back to the city.

    Very good wine selection and food and very knowledgeable staff. My only wish is that they would use crystal wine glasses for their tastings and pours. The tasting flights were not in wine glasses and the pours were in glass wine glasses.

    We had the pleasure of dining at Flight on the opening day of "patio season". Our host recommended a skin-contact pinot grigio from Slovenia to start. The burrata with tomatoes was outstanding. For entrees we chose the beef skewers which were served with an amazing side of garlicky spinach and the fried chicken with a tangy shaved carrot salad - both were delicious. We rounded out our meal with a decadent flan. Fantastic service, and yummy food. We'll be back.

    really great wine bar -- the wine suggestions and flights were excellent, there's a wide variety of wines to choose from, and the service was wonderful. I split an entree with my date, and the kitchen actually split it up between two plates and brought out individual plates for us, which I thought was really considerate. The service really stood out. Definitely recommend the salmon!

    We booked dinner at Flight largely because it's only a few blocks from Woolly Mammoth Theatre and we were looking for a pre-show meal. The wine list is extensive, but the server sort of left us on our own to choose; the prices of the flights of wine aren't listed on the menu either. The food is forgettable: the fried chicken is essentially chicken tenders & it's served with a whole lot of pickled shaved carrots. The appetizers we got were sort of Applebee's-like: fingerling potatoes that were not fingerlings and were more like potato skins and a burrata that was overwhelmed by what were called "roasted beets," but which seemed like cubed canned beets. Everyone was super nice, but at about $85/person (including tip) there are better options in the neighborhood.

    The food and wine were great but so over priced I do not plan to return. They took advantage of the valentines occasion and did not hold up their end. No way ariancini, fried chicken and flan should cost 300 for a couple.

    Flight is a cozy spot for a date night or drinks and dinner with friends. They have lots of interesting wines and are great at making recommendations if you want to try something new. They also do a fun monthly wine class (virtual at the moment). This spot is a gem.

    We’ve been a number of times. Solid place, but my biggest complaint is the glasses they serve the wine flights in. They are essentially large whisky glasses which are terrible for drinking wine. You can’t swirl or smell the wine at all, and the way the wine exits the glass is a very flat profile which isn’t good for wine. For a wine bar I expect wine specific glasses like a small stemless tasting glass. Service was great as always.

    We loved our meal and drinks at Flight! We got our food and drinks in a timely manner and we loved that the server gave us information about our flights, charcuterie, and meals as she served them. I also felt very safe with their COVID protocols! It was quick and easy to check in with my vaccine card, and both staff and patrons were great about wearing masks. I'll definitely be returning!
