Overall it was a great experience and a very cool looking restaurant… We did not go upstairs and we would like to try that next time. Our only deduction was our food took a long time however the staff was very nice about it and compensated us with a free dessert.

This was by far the best dinner that we have had in 2020. The atmosphere is beautiful but it is really the food that drives my 5 star review. We started off with the Short Rib Hummus and OMG it was beyond amazing. For dinner we both had the halibut and it was fantastic! We got a side of french fries that were to die for. We joked that we will be coming back regularly just for the hummus, fries and a few drinks!

Very much enjoyed our experience at Flint. The burrata appetizer was delicious, and my lamb chops were grilled to perfection. Our service was attentive and helpful. This is a place you would feel comfortable entertaining guests, and we intend to do so.

Food was great and so was the ambiance. Seemed to be understaffed and it took over 20 minutes to put our order in for drinks and appetizers. Short rib hummus was AMAZING and so was the burger, fries, and filet! We were seated in like an outdoor like area with a portable fan AC unit near us and it was still pretty hot and we were sweating during the majority of the dinner.

Poor service. Waited an extended amount of time to order drinks. Was low capacity because of Covid so service should’ve been on point. Food was mediocre which left us questioning the value. Wine was good but otherwise just a so-so experience.

Modern subdued feel, perfect for a romantic date night. Food was fanstastic, we had the lamb meatballs as an appetizer, and the salmon for our entree. Good portion sizes and absolutely delicious. Server was very timely and knowledgeable. Only complaint is that we weren't seated on the roof top for some of their stunning views!

Really trendy, very nice restaurant on Camelback Road with rooftop bar. Food was outstanding. I had the filet mignon and my wife had the seared scallops. Excellent! Kitchen and chefs worked behind floor to ceiling glass panels. The night we went it was loud, but that’s probably because it’s so popular. Can highly recommend.

Good food, which is what matters most, and they did a great job at renovating the place so it feels like a new place and not just a remodel of the prior restaurant.

We love all the veggie sides, awesome corn, cauliflower, shishito peppers and brocollini. Also the lamb meatballs and short rib hummus are delicious too. Our disappointment is at this time they are not serving their sea bass or their whole Bronzino. We are all tired of ubiquitous salmon. The olive oil cake dessert was also very yummy. We loved our server and the bartender is very skilled. Can’t wait to get back to normal with lunch and the full menu.

Flint is a fancy restaurant that is worth the price mark up. The cocktails are fantastic and so is the food. Pizzas are good size, but our meat entree was pretty skimpy. However, everything we had was presented perfectly and tasted phenomenal. The bone marrow is a must. Will definitely go back!

Enjoyed it for the most part. They put us on the outdoor/indoor patio and there was no music or other patrons and the air was noticeable warmer. Other than that, the food and service was good!

Definitely a good place to go. Even with Covid circumstance, it has managed to open & making good cocktails & food. We really enjoyed our dining experience & wanting to thank you for keeping it open.
A couple of things they we observed could be improved. The cocktails menu was limited & when we placed a drink order, it was out of stock. We reordered for different drink. We order the chicken [whole] yet, we were surprised as it was served as an half-a-chicken. Up on inquiry, we learned that it’s only served “half chicken” and cannot do all the elaborate show like used to be, before Covid 19. We can understand. It just the menu was misleading or we wished we were informed as we places our order — as the menu didn’t specify. We managed through.
We asked for a side of bread when the appetizer came, with the intention of dipping with the octopus dish. The bread didn’t arrive until we almost done with the Main Dish, accompanied with a friendly reminder to the staff.
Overall, We satisfied with our dining experience & the staff was nice, with a few minor mishaWe will revisit soon. It’s understandable for little things can happen during this difficult time. Again, we appreciate the opportunity to dining out during the pandemic.

Okay- first of all I hardly ever write reviews but this place was literally everything I needed and wanted. Let me set the scene for you: I was in airport hell all day coming from St. Louis anticipating flying to Laguna Beach to see my mom for her birthday. To make a long story short- the flight was delayed like 5 hours (kill me)- I had to spend the night in Phoenix (which initially had me HEATED)- the airport somehow lost my luggage (don’t get me started)- and then coincidentally I was wearing a black long sleeve bodysuit and black joggers in 110 degree AZ weather (rookie mistake). So- you get it- not a great day. The staff welcomed me with opened arms starting with my girl, Claudia. She literally could not have been nicer. She knew exactly who I was when I came through the door and greeted me with a big ole smile behind that mask and it honestly almost made me tear up. She was so warm and all I wanted was something like that after a shi**y day. Eli took amazing care of me at the bar and made the best recommendations. I loved every single plate that I over ordered. The HUMMUS....like- I come from a middle eastern family. When it comes to hummus we do not play- but this hummus really did level up and exceed some expectations I would have on AZ hum. He even greeted me with a strawberry margarita (how did he know me so well?). Brittney was such a sweetheart and came over multiple times to check on me. The staff really went out of there way to make me feel welcome when I was least expecting it. I was just shocked. All in all- let’s be real- I was having an AWFUL day that I really thought would be to no return. FLINT made it better. The staff, the food, the drinks, the ambiance. If I ever get trapped here on a layover again- you best believe I’m coming back.

But if you live here- eat here. It’s amazing. Thank you all for making me smile.

During Covid-19 quarantine, we felt comfortable with the social distancing, masks, and gloves that the restaurant had in place. We shared small plates, the octopus, lamb meatballs, and grilled artichokes were all delicious!

I can’t say enough good things about this place. I have been twice now and it’s just amazing from start to finish. A lot of these “Experience” type restaurant/bars get lost in pretentious glory but not Flint. The front end team is always welcoming and engaged. The wait staff is incredible and the food and cocktails are absolutely awesome. The restaurant, bar and lounge are all beautiful and the roof top bar is so fun and inviting...actually very comfortable after the sun goes down too. I heart the small plate selections...grilled artichoke and Fried Chicken might be old favorites but they do them both with a delicious twist. Love the wine choices and cocktails.

Nice experience although it seems several staff were stressed with the way it was staffed for the volume and the new summer menu that may have just been rolled out this week. I guess the bar upstairs is now closed so it would be great it that was somewhere on the website as we were expecting to have a drink upstairs. Also, with the open kitchen you can see everything and now that the mask policy is in effect, several in the kitchen had to continually pull up their masks as well as touch their face to do so. Also, several in the kitchen did not have gloves. We noted there was a birthday at the Table yet no "Happy Birthday" mention except from the server when we brought it up.
