We return once and again to Flyte because we consider it the best restaurant in Nashville (service, food and value). On this occasion we took a visiting cousin who lives half the time in South America and in Europe. His experience confirmed to us that our opinion is not biased. He thought that if Flyte were located in Europe it would definitely have a very high Michelin rating. Every Nashvilean and tourist should visit this place because it is a unique experience. The quality of the food is the top part of this experience. Every visit surprises us with a new, wonderfully tasting addition to the menu. We cannot offer a stronger recommendation

My husband and I have been to Flyte countless times, and they never disappoint! We were celebrating closing on our first home during our most recent visit, and they brought us a champagne toast on the house. For being such an open space, the accoustics are great. I can’t say enough good things!

We had a very nice dinner here before a show at the Ryman. We shared the liver pate appetizer, and tried the Cobia and Short ribs. All was delicious. I would recommend Flyte. Our only complaint was that our waiter was extremely chatty and somewhat intrusive.

Had dinner for 2 on a Thursday night and there were only ever two tables occupied at one time in the entire place. Despite there basically being an echo in the mostly empty restaurant, the food was good. Both our server for dinner and the bartender we talked with while we had an after dinner drink were very nice and attentive.

We ordered filets medium. They came out medium rare to rare. It was our anniversary dinner, and my wife was promised champagne and chocolate. We received neither. Our waiter was impersonal and basically went through the motions. I do not recommend this restaurant.

the tall ceilings make for a neat atmosphere but also gives a cavernous feel; the opposite of cozy. The food was very good and the service was good. You might not want to go there for a quiet, intimate conversation but I suspect it is popular with a younger crowd.

Mark, at the front was wonderful and saved the restaurant on service because our waiter was not good. He rushed us, even though the restaurant was empty, got frustrated when we debated a best choice for wine, even though they didn’t have the wine he recommended at first. He then spilled half a glass of the bottle on our table, with no apology or other consideration. Throughout the meal, he was snippy and not genuine in taking care of us. Definitely did not appear to want to be there. If it had been my first visit, I wouldn’t go back with that level of service, but the food is always very good and worth a try.

After reserving through OpenTable, the manager at Flyte called ahead confirming our dinner.
He also asked if there were any dietary restrictions and the occasion we were celebrating.
Great service overall, and staff was very knowledgeable on the menu.
Food was great!

One of the absolute best in Nashville. I first tried FLYTE in 2010, and I honestly think that experience is what turned me into a foodie. It was the most memorable meal I'd had in my life at that point. I'm happy to say that I've been back several times over the years, and the restaurant has maintained this same level of execution. The menu is excellent, and the wine list is one of the best in town. I love keeping up with all of the new restaurant openings in Nashville, and I've found that a lot of the old "mainstays" just can't keep up with the quality and inventiveness of many new additions, but this is not true for FLYTE. They still provide a top-notch experience, with excellent food and great service. No gimmicks needed. They deserve more recognition than they currently receive!

Our server (Kevin) was great. Food was mixed — I had the scallops with rice, red curry, and kale. I really disliked the kale because it was pretty vinegary and I didn’t think it went well with the rest of the dish at all. The dessert (caramel cake with apples) was very dry. My husband’s hanger steak dish was very good. Wine selection was great.

There’s a reason this has been my favorite restaurant in Nashville for the past nine years. Everything from management/ownership to staff to food to atmosphere it is incredible. I am never let down with service, food, presentation or wine selection - nothing. Flyte is always perfection and I couldn’t recommend this place and staff any more highly.
