FLYTE Ratings and Reviews
The food was wonderful. The service is great. The wine list is extensive. I appreciate the ability to order a flight of something to taste before choosing a full glass. My husband likes their cocktails. We were seated in a cozy corner table. The wait staff was attentive but not intrusive. A very lovely evening. I especially appreciate the relative quiet. We were able to hold a real conversation.
We were happy to discover this delightful restaurant which was a refreshing alternative to the touristy restaurants in the downtown Nashville area. The restaurant has a savory seasonal menu with fresh ingredients. The atmosphere was romantic and our waiter, Will , was both charming and attentive all of our needs.
FLYTE did not disappoint! We were greeted promptly and seated. Kevin was our server and he was fantastic...just right on attention and service. We had the deviled egg Flyte for starters...the huervos rancheros one is a amazing! Next I️ had the wedge salad...the whipped Gorgonzola and local bacon is so, so good! My son had the Caesar salad and it had a smoky dressing that was really unique. Entrees were the filet and duck. Both were cooked to perfection and plated to create the perfect bite every time. I also had 2 wine selections from the Old World menu...both were excellent French wines. Dessert was a sorbet Flyte my son had...really good! And I️ had the marscapone cheesecake...it tastes like Fall on a plate...apple, caramel yumminess. The service was right on the money and the ambience is hip without being pretentious. I will definitely be back. Well done, Flyte!!
Our server Todd was super friendly, but checked on us way too often, to the point of it being annoying. He checked on us what felt like every 5 minutes and while I suppose I'd rather have an over than under attentive server, it was disruptive and definitely negatively affected our experience. Food was excellent.
They were super accommodating to our group as the size of our party kept changing and they went out of their way to change the reservation. The food was delicious, especially the dessert. one of our party had to leave because he wasn't feeling well right after soup arrived and they canceled his meal and didn't charge us for his appetizer (that wasn't eaten) or his meal. Really a great restaurant.
Everything was delicious but it took my husband almost 20 minutes to get his first drink and our waiter was extremely busy-like he had too many tables and was very hurried in speaking with us. Would have liked to have a more laid back waiter and speed on the food.
Always one of our favorite places for a treat. Wine selections are great and the wine manager is always helpful at selecting a new experience. Fillets are a top notch and service is off the chart responsive. Pots de Cream is out of this world. You will not be disappointed!!!!
Love this place. Prompt attention upon arrival and warm greeting. Informed and helpful servers. Just the right level of attention. The food is outstanding. Great wedge salad and a salad with watermelon and arugula. Our group was equally split in ordering the duck and the pork Flyte but unanimous in our judgement. The food is outstanding. But I said that twice but it is. From Nashville or visiting Nashville, put it on your list.
Each time I visit Nashville, I make a reservation at Flyte and have never been disappointed. Fresh, seasonal, inventive food without any pretension - just delicious. Favorites included the deviled egg trio, heirloom tomato caprese salad, and pork three ways. Perfect pairing with a Cote de Rhone. Thanks again for another amazing dining experience, Flyte!
My favorite upscale restaurant in Nashville. Not only is the food amazing, creative and inventive, the wait staff are just special. Scott is an incredible person, always knowledgeable, helpful and warm. All the staff make us feel like they love food and people....great combo!!!
Perfect...as always! This is our favorite place to indulge. Snacked on Deviled Egg Flyte and Salmon Rillettes. Both were savory and a perfect start. For starters, we enjoyed Caprese plate and Ravioli with country ham and mornay sauce...mmmm. The wedge salad is a great go-to. I had the roasted garlic potato soup. It was light and interesting. For our entree, the strip steak had great flavor but a little dry. The pairings made up for the minor absence of moisture. The pan-seated salmon is what I always choose. It is a phenomenal seafood choice with Asian infusion. The walnut fudge to end our meal was to die for. An authentic, elaborate experience to enjoy with my favorite human!
Our server was excellent. They have a good wine list. I had the filet mignon which was good, but not as good as I expected! It wasn't fork tender and it lacked flavor. The wilted spinach (which I normally love) was sauteed with some vinegar I think because the taste was very obvious. My husband had the pork loin, belly, sausage which he really enjoyed. We had a couple of desserts which were good. I expected more based on the reviews and comments from my friends who have eaten there.
The service was fantastic- great recommendations from the server. I stated with the deviled eggs- must have. Then Cesar salad that was so fresh Ana creamy. My entree was rockfish which I've never had- with butter beans and an amazing light sauce that was to die for. But the grande finale- a peanut butter and chocolate dessert TO DIE FOR!!!
Oh yeah- the scarlet martini cocktail
Was awesome too. One of the beast meals I've had in Nashville so far. When I'm here again- will for sure return!!
Overall i was disappointed and underimpressed. Food was okay, but overpriced for the value, menu was too limiting, decor/design was cold and lacking personality, folks were friendly but service a little slow. I would not recommend this restaurant, nor would i return. Open Table gave it 4.6 stars, which is why i chose it, but I don't agree with that rating.
We got a reservation at Flyte because of the great reviews on Open Table. I gave it 3 stars because of the small portions, mediocre ambiance, and the fact that the food should have been much better for the price point. Nothing was great, or even very good- and for around $300 for a table of 4 it should have been. From now on, I will cross reference OpenTable reviews with google or Yelp's reviews.
We were celebrating our 28th anniversary and went to Flyte. Todd was our waiter and we could not have asked for better service. The selection of wine is wonderful and we enjoyed a flight of old world red wines. The meal was outstanding. I highly recommend the watermelon/gouda/pine nut salad. My husband had the duck and i had the cobia. Both portions were large, the presentation inviting and the taste fresh and clean. A great meal!! A must visit when in Nashville the you are tired of BBQ!!!
Everything about our meal was great. Fantastic heirloom tomato salad, excellent entries - both fish and meat along with accompanying veggies and starch, and dessert. All were fantastic. The wine flights (a la "Flyte") were also excellent, and we purchased a couple of half glasses of the wines we particularly enjoyed. In our case our very knowledgeable and friendly server also happened to be the sommelier, so we had particularly good input and recommendations about the wines and wine/food pairings. Also, they sell more than 100 wines by the glass!
As visitors to Nashville, and as much as my wife and I love southern comfort cooking including fried chicken and barbecue, we really enjoyed the truly great food at this slightly out-of-the-way-but-easy-to-find restaurant (bonus - easy free parking lot).
