“Fun concept”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

An interesting place to go with friends and try lots of different dishes. I love bison and it was well cooked, but hardly seasoned at all. Oyster flight was disappointing. The server had no idea what kind of oysters were in the dishes or where they had come from. Desserts were out of this world. Try the Memphis Belle pie. You will thank me.

“Go for the experience, stay for the food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

This is a super concept for a restaurant. I hope it catches on. For those of you who are like me and want to get the maximum picture of what a restaurant has to offer, Flight gives you the chance to really dig into their menu by offering sets of three different smaller portions, or "flights," of whatever it is that you are wanting to try (you can have a flight of appetizers, flights of soup, main dish flights, dessert flights, whiskey flights, you get the gist). You can get pre-made flights of food (a seafood flight, for example), or for a few dollars more, you can make your own flights. Now, fair warning, there's a reason this model works, and that's because you get flight-happy and before you know it, you will have spent a fortune! But the food was really good, the service was excellent, and the experience was incomparable. Plus, if you don't like one of the items you ordered, chances are you'll like the other two in your flight, so it's less of a risk! Also, I didn't like one of the items in my entree flight as well as one of the ones my boyfriend chose, so the waitress took it away and brought me something different, which I thought was really nice. One bit of advice, the outdoor seating is actually a lot nicer, in my opinion, than the indoor seating, and its pretty nicely heated if it's cold outside. But even with the outdoor seating, it's a pretty cramped space, so I wouldn't go there with romance in mind, because even outdoors the tables are crammed together (people at different tables ended up talking with each other just because you could hear everyone's conversations, which can be a turn on or a turn off depending on how intimate you were hoping your meal would be). I recommend warning them if you are going to be there with anyone that has difficulty maneuvering (wheelchair, walker, etc.). Also, for those of you who may be put off by the reviews saying the flight concept makes ordering too complicated, don't worry, you can just order one entree or one glass of wine. You don't have to order a flight.

I wish there was one of these everywhere. Such an amazing concept, that really you could go to everyday and never have the same meal twice!! And shockingly affordable for the quality. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

“Such a neat idea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

Great service, great wine and great food, a great combination. They serve everything in flights; flights of wines cleverly paired together, flights of appetizers and salads and my favorite food flights. I got the "fresh fish" flight, 3 different types of fish done in small tapas size portions each very unique.

“Good quality dining in a pleasant environment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

Our last night in Memphis and we wanted to eat out and eat some good food ( having had a pretty grim plate of Gus's Fried Chicken the night before !! :-( ) Great atmosphere and a good menu
Persoanlly I found the whole flight concept unappealling and especialy with the wine ..way too complicated ... If I want a glass of wine ..I want a glass of decent wine !! ..end of story. Not a splash of this and a sip of that !!) so the whole mix and match things was lost on me..and it took our poor server ages to explain it all ....needs to be way simpler .. or just have a menu ..with some easy to choose "mix and match" - option - finish.

But having said that - the food and the service were top class ! Not a cheap night out .. but we left the restaurant happy and well fed !

Flight ..Big Tick !!
