Because of the size of our group we were placed in a back area next to the kitchen. From there you couldn’t appreciate the decor and it was loud... would love to go back with a smaller group and be in the main dining area. That said, the food was terrific!

Excellent food, and great ambience. Service overall was fabulous, although our specific waiter was a bit inattentive. He also seemed put off by our selection since they didn’t match his recommendations. Flyte is one of our favorite places to dine, but we will probably look for another option, or at least, a different server.

We have posted several reviews of this place because we attend as frequently as possible. We may sound as shareholders of this restaurant because we can only praise their people, food and ambience. We are not, however. It is simply that every time we go the quality is excellent, there are surprises in the menu and we feel treated like royalty. Not to be missed if you are up for haute cuisine in Nashville!

Tried out Flyte for the first time and it was true to the other reviewers opinions. The service was on the slow side starting off the experience which was disappointing since there wasn’t but a very few diners, our waitress was on top of things and apologized, but unfortunately our orders were not timely. Once arrived at our table though they were great in flavor and creative, which saved the experience overall. I would recommend this restaurant to those wanting a fancier date night but not pressed for time.

This was the best meal I had in a very long time. I liked it so well I went back and personally thanked the cooks. I eat out a lot and I was very impressed with the combination of flavors. I feel restaurants usually give you to much to eat and I thought this was a nice portion. I would go back again. You won't be disappointed.

I loved the feel of the restaurant and the overall service was great, and we don’t mind paying for expensive food, but we felt like for over $20 per plate, we definitely weren’t served enough. The experience would’ve been 10/10 if we’d just had bigger portions.

First time at Flyte and the experience was top notch from the service to the food. Service was very attentive, but not overbearing. The food was exceptional; very tasty and fresh and the menu offered a variety of items from seafood, chicken, pork and beef. The wine list and cocktails are sure to please! Of course who doesn’t need dessert, a great selection of sweets. Overall a great experience and looking forward to going back as the menu changes daily.

The food was good but the portions were comically small. My “cheese cake” was maybe the size of a half dollar - total. It was the same shape too. AND IT WAS $10! Not happy about that. If the waitress would have told me that I could finish the cheesecake in two bites, no way I would’ve ordered it for $10. And the sizes of the “sides” were like that too. The food was good but I felt ripped off by the tiny portions. It literally was laughable. But good tasting food.

We went for Valentine’s Day. There was a 4 course menu with a few options of each course. My husband had the beef braciola, the tomato sauce tasted like jarred sauce. We had seen great reviews on Open Table and were looking forward to a great dinner while in town. I wish our experience was better given all the great choices in Nashville.

$85/person 4 course dinner plus $40 wine pairings(2 ounces with each course). Server wanted to take order for all 4 courses right away. I told him that we did not want to be rushed through the meal. He told us that the tables were reserved again and had to be ready. We were given 5-10 minutes between courses. Tables remained empty even as we left. None of the food was bad. None was particularly good. The wine pairing and food plates were put on the table with no reminder as to what each was. The decor was nice and the noise level low. All in all a disappointing experience.
