“Interesting concept”
Reviewed November 18, 2011

Trip Advisor has this restaurant at number one. The concierge at the Peabody Hotel told us that it is number one in Memphis and we can see why as the concept is great. You can have a full entree and bottle of wine, but it is more fun to try the flights of wine and flights of dinner. The flights of wine are 2 oz. of 3 either reds or whites. The flights of entrees are tasting portions of regular entrees.

I chose the steak tastings that included a portion of filet, elk, and pork. All were beautifully presented. My husband chose the Chef's choice that had a portion of tenderloin, scallop, and duck that he enjoyed.

Both flights were tasty and beautifully presented though I must say at first bite both of us agreed that the meals weren't even luke warm at best. We did tell our server and she happily took them back for a re-do that wasn't much warmer.

I believe that hot food should be served hot. While the meals were very tasty, the problem may be that the presentation takes more time and that makes the food less than warm when served.

When in Memphis, I would try this restaurant as it is different and a different experience.

“Deserving of #1 Rating”
Reviewed November 15, 2011

Had lunch and dinner here--both excellent. Fun menu concept allows you to mix and match smaller portions of soups, mains, deserts (like getting 3 smaller items for the price of one larger one, within each course), so you can sample a wider range of menu items in just one visit.

Book ahead--this place is popular in the evening and fills up fast. Ask servers for recommendations; they were right on the mark with both food and wine advice.

Fair pricing for the quality, too.

“Outstanding and novel idea”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

We just happen to walk into Flight just to get a cocktail and ended up having the most wonderful dinner or dinners. The "flight' idea was absolutely the best. We got to try great wines and taste all kinds of fabulous foods. Will definitely go back if ever in Memphis and highly recommed it. Kudos to the Chef!!

“Delicious and sophisticated way to spend a night in Memphis”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

First night memphis and I had already booked a table before traveling. Restaurant was full, but not uncomfortably so, on a Sunday night. Staff was friendly and courteous. Our waitress, Ellen, was bubbly and helpful. We sat at a table in the enclosed patio. It was beautiful but a little distracting (let's just say you could see everything going on on Main Street, even things you didn't want to see). We ordered a "flight" of pinot noir, Fire and Ice, and found a new favorite. My husband and I both ordered flights for dinner. Unbelievable! So unique and so good. When come back to Memphis, we will be coming to Flight.
