Great ambience and great tasting food. Went there for Valentine’s Day and it wasn’t too busy. It was my first time and was impressed by the ambience upon entering. Drinks were made well and they offered a good selection of food options to choose from. We went for small plates and ordered the ceviche which was fresh and so tasty!! The fries and boneless fried chicken were also flavorful and crispy, perfectly cooked! I would definitely return!

Service was great - very attentive and friendly. Recommendations she made were good and we really enjoyed the food. At first I thought that it would not be enough but we ended up needing a doggie bag because we wanted to try the dessert. I am looking forward to the next time we can get here.

Love this place! If you don’t mind sharing different dishes, you’ll like this place. Majority of the dishes come in flights of 3–3 different mac and cheeses, fries, ceviche, etc. The flights of cocktails and beers also come in 3, and are pretty good sizes. Looking forward to going back!

Love the family style eating. Get to taste and enjoy different dishes. Husband loves the IPA beers. They make good margaritas and they have Don Julio tequilas. The service is great. Been there several times and was attended by different servers. They are all very friendly and accommodating. Will continue to go there

This was our first time here, it sounded a little different than some of the other usual restaurants we go to so we thought we give it a try. We were greeted promptly at the door, and the server was friendly, attentive, and new the menu well. The menu descriptions were only adequate. We wanted to try the tacos but since I’m allergic to cilantro I asked the server if it was included on the tacos, she said yes but immediately offered to bring it on the side since the other at the table enjoy it. We also tried the pizza trio, one of which was mushroom, but it did not specify that it was only shiitake mushrooms. These are not our favorite so we ended up not eating that pizza. Not the servers fault but I never would’ve thought a mushroom pizza would be served with only shiitake’s on it. They have a very strong flavor and are not to everyone’s liking so a heads-up would have been appreciated. We also tried the trio of Manhattan’s, as this is our usual go to cocktail. They were only just adequate, nothing special, in fact if I had to do it all over again I would not have made this selection. I don’t know if it was a lesser quality bourbon, lesser quality vermouth, or just cheap bitters. Either way a regular or “call” Manhattan would be the better option.

Brought Brandon here to enjoy a nice lunch prior to him going off to college. Purchased the Groupon deal so it was a great offer for 2 flights and 2 entrees...service was excellent. Got the Ahi tuna, tacos, Swedish meatballs, and Caesar salad. Everything was tasty and perfect amount. Our waiter was very nice and attentive to our table. Will be back. ;)

Fun and cute place great for groups...The Groupon was honest and worth much more. We received a complete meal without hidden fees. The small portions are very fulfilling. The the red wine flight.

I was excited to try this place but was a little disappointed. I was shocked that you have to physically sit at the bar to get happy hour prices. I travel a lot and never heard of this. This was disappointing and may be one of the reason I don’t come back or recommend it to others.

Love the concept of different flights, but not enough variety. Was not too impressed with the martini flight. Meatballs and Falafels were good as was the French fries

The server was very friendly and made sure we were well taken care of. We loved the variety of menu options and chose both individual items and those served in “flights”. We found all of our selections to be delicious. This was our first time here, and we will definitely be back!

I’ve been here a few times. I guess today was an off day.

We were greeted and seated with a smile. We ordered the mushroom flatbread, steak street tacos and the truffle grilled cheese, flights hamburger.

I think it was just us and one other table.

The steak street tacos and flights hamburger came quickly. We were hungry so we ate it quickly. We waited for the mushroom flatbread and truffle grilled cheese for quite some time. Our server brought us the dessert menu to look at for a complimentary dessert. That was nice.

As we got out mushroom flatbread and truffle grilled cheese, we ordered the cheesecake cups (strawberry, mango and chocolate syrup). Good, but to my dismay, there was a small piece of plastic paper (like the plastic paper cover to keep the freshness of the cream cheese) in my chocolate cheese cup.

Hmm, don’t think I will be back.

We were a party of 8 (reserved 10) and the waitress had a big issue because we wanted to have individual receipts, this set the tone. We had to wait over 30 min to get our drinks and I actually got a mojito with no mint, had to send it back. Food was fair in taste but we paid WAY too much for it. Sad, I loved the concept and I don't remember it like this last year.

My niece and I wanted to have a late lunch at a quiet but fun place and Flights was perfect. Our server “Eldridge” was great and very attentive!

We enjoyed everything we ordered, and each one of them was so flavorful and tasty. This was my second time here but previously I went for dinner where my girlfriends and I ordered cocktails and other delectable items, and had a blast! My niece, her first time, very much enjoyed the food and service as well. Definitely recommend Flights especially for a group or Girls’ Night Out!
