This place is a hidden little jewel in Whittier.

They Have the best service and very friendly staff. Try their bacon wrapped dates and the paella. They have a lot of delicious dishes. Go with friends and order a few dishes and share. They also have absolutely great wines!!

Love the tapas! I'm addicted to the dates - filled with soft cheese, wrapped with bacon, covered with a honey tamarind glaze. . .yum! Tried the pork belly tacos and they were very tasty too. Service was good even during the dinner rush. Beer selection was good too!

I've been coming here weekly since they opened. The food is consistently excellent and I've never had a bad food night here. The service is relaxed but fine. It can take a while to be seated because the word is out and this is the go to place for really good tapas. The ambiance is fun, noisy and lively which... More

I love tapas! Whittier only has a handful of really great restaurants, and Phlight is one of them. The pork belly tacos and bacon wrapped dates are amazing.

This is the best restaurant in Whittier! The ambiance is loud, friendly, casual and comfortable. The menu consists of small and large plates so you can try everything and share if you'd like, or not. The menu is sophisticated and includes some nuevo Latin - inspired dishes. everything is delicious!

Lively atmosphere, great service, and great sampling of foods. With the tapa style you can sample multiple food options and none will leave you disappointed.

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

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 for 6PM. I didn't know if they... 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
