Flight offers several distinct dining options: On the main floor, there is the hustle and bustle of friends and businesspeople gathering together.

“Unique”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

A unique restaurant where you can mix and match 3 of each for wine, soups, appitizers and mains. The waiter was very knowledgeable and very helpful in explaining how it works at Flights. Recommendation was excellent

“Great for those who can't decide”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Flight means you order a "flight" of items. Three dishes come in a flight. The food was exceptional and I really enjoyed getting to try several dishes. I made the mistake of trying the dessert flight which was wonderful but I left so very stuffed!

“Wonderful 21st Anniversary!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Desired a quiet, elegant evening as we celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary. Been told that Flight offered a unique style of cuisine with ambience. With a valet near the door, we were quick to get to our secluded table for two on the mezzanine. Being in a cozy corner of the restaurant, it was so nice to enjoy our private time together while enjoying the beautiful views out of the large picture window. The idea of Flight is a brilliant one! One can choose a "flight" which consists of three different dishes from the various main entrees that they serve or one can order the single entree. It was a difficult decision. My husband chose the flight with elk, lamb, & another meat, while I went with the Chef's special of Bison. We shared the Harvest salad and enjoyed every crunchy bite. However when our food arrived, I was very stunned at the small portion size. The presentation was breathtaking but I was STARVING! And here were these small slices of bison. How was this going to quench my appetite?! I was doubting my previous decision to share the salad now. Obviously, our waiter could read my mind. He reassuringly said to wait and not pass judgement until I had completely finished my meal. Then, he would return to hear my judgement. He was right! We, Americans, have become accustomed to the Super-Size everything when it comes to our food portions. Flight provides what most people would consider an ample portion. I ate every last bite on my plate, and didn't need a take-out bag (which was a first). I was pleasantly full and not miserable from stuffing myself! It was absolutely Wonderful!! I loved the Bison and would choose it again. After a bite of the bison, my hubby thought the bison was better than his elk (more tender & flavorful). He also really liked the lamb. We will definitely return to Flight for more wonderful, special occasions.

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Dining at Flight is more of an event than just a dining experience. The fun begins when the server first arrives and explains the many "flights" and how the game is played. It is fun, entertaining, and very delicious. I like the fact that there is such a great variety to taste and enjoy! I can't wait to go again to try something else. Highly recommended to the adventurous gourmet!
