Good food… food wasn’t hot when it came out.. it was luke warm. Wine glasses were dirty… wine flight was unnamed so you don’t know what you are drinking. It was good… I would maybe eat there again. For the prices you pay there, the food and service have room for improvement. Waitress made us wait a while then brought out entrees when we still had appetizers to finish. Nice venue and decor, upbeat type of place.

I brought my friend there for the first time and he really liked it. I think it’s safe to say that he will go back very soon. My son actually wants me to take him there this weekend. My wife’s favorite dish is the filet mignon.

For 4 of us the price was $303.00, way to much! Small selection of entree’s and the food not very good. The drinks were excellent and our server was great. Overall would not go back anytime soon esp if we want food. Drinks probably but for dinner absolutely not

Excellent dining experience. The dishes are well prepared and presented. Prompt and curious staff. Be prepared to pay for that lovely meal. The bill was over $120 for two people at lunch. Hard to complain, just a little pricey.

A great place for Happy Hours with friends. Outdoor dining setup was very welcoming. Love the drinks and food assortments as the taste and the presentation was mouth-watering. Very convenient located in the downtown Burlingame area, great location for get together with friends or co-workers.

Definitely will come back again!

We love trying a little of everything, so the fact that they have food flights as well as drink flights fit perfectly for us. The quality of food was great as was the presentation. Fresh and good quality. We had a very sweet and attentive waitress, so service also scored high. We ate in an outdoor booth, which was fun. Weather was perfect for an outdoor experience. The tables are on the sidewalk, so there is lots to see as people strolled down the busy street; yet we felt safe and protected in our booth with three plexiglass walls. A bit noisy when the train blows by, but it added to the eclectic ambiance. Overall, it was a fun date night!

Please bring back the food flights at Flights ! I noticed at all the tables surroundings ours , we must not be the only ones that think that. Everyone around was ordering the only flights available now. The food flights ( and drinks too of course) are what makes this place so unique. Please bring back the food flights at all the locations !!

I decided to bring my parents and dog to Flights yesterday. I had such a good time at the bar the night before. My friend brought me and her friend for the first time. The mojito, cosmo, and sliders were delicious so I just had to come back. I ordered the mojito and sliders again and tasted just the same. SO YUMMY! My dad got the filet mignon and the meat was oh so tender. My mom ordered the meatloaf and was very happy with it. It was also delicious. The host offered water to my dog and was very friendly.

Originally I had reserved seats indoors but wanted to bring my dog so I called the location to move the reservations and was treated very nicely over the phone.

The ambiance of the restaurant was very welcoming and every worker I’ve come in contact with has been equally as friendly and helpful.

I’m excited to return tonight with my boyfriend! Thank you Flights!

We had a Mother's Day meal for three with outdoor seating. The parklets were enclosed on three sides with good protection from the elements, car noise on Burlingame Ave, and Covid plexiglass shielding on three sides. Service was fair, but it take take a while to get our drinks. Food and drinks were solid with notable dishes being the Ceviche, ahi tuna flight, Angus/Pork Belly/Chicken slider. The fries trio was a little overpriced and the kale Ceasar bland in flavor. The Swedish meatballs were OK, but only had 6 meatballs in the entre. The Beignet flight and Berry Cobbler desert were good, but not fabulous. Overall, a solid, slightly pricey place to eat. I would probably go again.

We ate there for Mother's Day and the food was pretty good. Waitstaff was attentive and friendly. The Swedish Meatballs were fantastic and the Egg Benedict was great. We wanted a side order of waffles and was told no substitutions or off menu items because of the Mother's Day rush. Meh. Not really a concern. The waitress came back and said that she put it in as a Child's Waffle, which was nice.

Very disappointing Mother's Day brunch and very overpriced (e.g., $14 for one glass of mimosa.) We all ordered breakfast items...waffles ( a waffle with fruit and a chicken and waffle) and Eggs Benedict and they were brought to the table in less than 5 minutes. All of our meals were cold; the piece of fried chicken was dry inside and besides being cold, the eggs had cold cooked spinach on them which was not mentioned on the menu. Our server offered to redo the meals or bring something else. The redo waffle with fruit was lukewarm and very hard from being over-cooked. The others tried other items like the skewers and the sweet potato pasta and neither was enjoyed. One in our party ordered a craft beer and the bartender replaced it with a different brand because it was skunked. One in our party ordered decaf coffee but had to settle for regular because they didn't have decaf. We ended up paying over $100 for brunch for 3 adults and left the restaurant hungry. If there was a manager at the restaurant, the person never came over to our table. We will never go back to this restaurant.

My wife and I ate lunch on Friday. We ordered a flight of sliders and slushy margaritas and an entree of meatloaf that included garlic mash potatoes covered in gravy with broccolini. My wife said she was surprised at how good the food, drinks and service were. We dined inside and were wuickly seated. The waitress patiently answered our questions. The price of our meal was comparible to lunches that we have had at other restaurants. We were happy with our lunch at Flights

The meal was ok. I had the salmon which was good but the brocollini was undercooked.
The scallops were a bit rubbery.
The saving grace was the sweet potato ravioli.
The flight of margaritas were mediocre.

Food was good. We all pretty much ate everything on our plates.

The only note I’d like them to know is that our appetizer was served at the same time as our dinners but we understand that everyone is trying to get their routine back in place due to the pandemic.

Awful service. Went on a Saturday night around 8pm to meet some friends for drinks and we were not greeted by a waiter until 9:30pm, after which we could not order drinks because last call had already passed. We had tried multiple times to flag down a waiter to serve us, but each time we were told to wait until our table’s “designated” server could come to our table. In the end, while we enjoyed the outdoor ambience, we were displaced with the service. Based on that experience alone, I would not recommend this restaurant to a friend.

We went there for our scheduled reservation and the hostess said that they were closed. I told her we had a reservation and she said Open table isn’t accurate. So we didn’t have dinner in burlingame. Ended up getting take out instead. Thanks for the non experience.
