“The BEST!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

FLight is one of the best restaurants in Memphis. Impeccable service, location and food. Very romantic spot. Get a table by the window for people watching.

The cupcake flight was my favorite!

“Small Plate Concept, Good Execution”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Flight takes on a tough concept to execute and does it well, albeit with some flaws. In a Spanish tapas bar, many dishes are prepared in advance; most of Flight's dishes require some preparation and occasionally the execution suffers in trying to do small versions of the entrees. But generally the food was outstanding. Several of the appetizers are organized as flights and are excellent bargains with portions big enough to share. We enjoyed the Ocean Flight appetizer which consisted of fried lobster and artichoke, crab cake, and coconut shrimp, with several good sauces. We took the opportunity to sample a wide variety of entrees including stuffed flounder, veal scallopini, shrimp and grits, duck breast, and scallops Benedict. Amazingly most of the small dishes were tasty and cooked with care; this probably represented a great deal of work by the kitchen. Our only critiques are that the kitchen was a bit heavy handed with the salt and truffle oil, and the crab cakes were undercooked. Decor is spiffy white table cloth and service was excellent. The wine list is well chosen with a wide spectrum of choices. We enjoyed a reasonably priced zinfandel. This is definitely a restaurant to revisit.

“Interesting concept very well executed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Th explanation of how the meals can work takes a while and is a little intimidating. Here's the short version - pick 3 appetizers that sound good and a small version of each is brought to you. Same for salads, meals, desserts and drinks. If you like to try a variety of things this is a great idea. I had a carpaccio flight for the app which was out of this world. For my meal I had bison rib eye, elk and veal scallopini. It was all pretty well done but not always top notch. My tuna carpaccio was drowned in a sesame sauce that killed the flavor and the veal was overcooked. But the rest of the dishes, the overall concept and the great service would have me eating there again as soon as possible. A huge amount of fun especially if you want to try a new dish without committing you whole meal to it.

“One of the BEST!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

We have been to a lot of wonderful restaurants, but this is definitely top-notch! We had walked by it in the past few years, but this year we met several staff members after they got done working and they all praised the place and had a great chemistry. The next night was our last night in town and on a weekend night, but we followed their advice and just asked for a seat at the bar (the restaurant was booked solid), and we were treated very well. The "flights" of wine were great! I got to taste several types of Bordeaux and then Italian wines, really fun and not terribly expensive. The overall vibe was so cool and we had a ton of different foods to taste, really a neat concept... "Ocean flight"... 3 sorts of seafood. Another flight of oysters, to which at the delight of my fiancee, decided the server was correct, the "Rockefeller" ended up being his least favorite of the three... then the "steak flight", which was amazing... the ELK was even more tender and fabulous than the filet mignon! Then the dessert flight... well, we went with the chocolate varieties... to die for, couldn't finish! FANTASTIC!! We will definitely return next year, the food and the service was top notch! Lovely atmosphere! (With the exception of the crying baby we heard from afar... I do not know why people take their tiny children to this type of restaurant... ). Anyway, definitely try this place if you come to downtown Memphis!! Ask for Collette, Eric, Halle, John or Julie... they are all wonderful!!

“Great meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

We enjoyed a great meal at Flight Restaurant during our recent stay in Memphis. My wife and I have been to restaurants before where flights of wine were served with the menu, but never where flights of food are offered, including soups, salads, appetizers, entrees and desserts! And you could mix and match between flights! Very creative and the food was quite good, as was the wine. Fun atmosphere; we were there on a Sunday night and it was packed. Strong recommendation.
