We loved it!

WOW WOW WOW. Phlight was a welcome surprise in historic Uptown Whittier. The area has gone through a huge change over the past 15 years... From its historic roots to the more trendy atmosphere that it offers, there are plenty of choices for food. We went on a Thursday night and made reservations... read more

This is our third visit here, and we cannot figure out why this restaurant is rated highly (and can't figure out why we keep coming back!). The atmosphere is nil - plywood benches, cheap wood tables, dark, loud. The waiter was friendly, but very poor English. My wife's Osso Buco (the special!) was unattractive, gravy slopped over mashed potatoes with... More

I knew the restaurant was a tapas style eatery and I left the restaurant full and happy. I started with the asparagus soup and it was light and extremely tasty. Next came the white fish. It was drizzled with a light sauce and cherry tomatoes. I used my fork to cut through the fish but didnt need to as it... More

I took friends from the east coast the other night. They really enjoyed it.... It was nice not to have to figure out where we could meet a large groups needs. There is something for everyone !!!

My Boyfriend and I stopped by this place cause it is close to our house and we had heard it was good. When we got in there was already a pretty long wait list but we decided to hang around for the table. Once we were finally seated it took FOREVER for anyone to even approach us with water. The...

Small Boutique Restaurant in the middle of Downtown Whittier. Space is not too big just right for some casual dining. I didn't like the menu design. Everything is crammed on a single page without much description. Every item is on a single line. But the food was good. I guess that's all matters.

This is a stylish little place with excellent food selections. We ordered four small plates and they were all good. Then came the crunchy lentils and our taste buds were blown away. The service was attentive and the place had a good vibe to it. We would definitely return and order two plates of lentils!

One of the best restaurants in Whittier. The food is excellent. Some days you can bring your own wine.
