Favorite Go-To in Memphis

Dined 3 days ago

Flight never disappoints. Flight's unique concept of serving wines, salads and entrees in flights makes the dining experience fun and far more enjoyable that the usual dining experience. I have been to Flight many times and have enjoyed a five-star experience every time. The food is delicious, interesting and well-prepared. The waitstaff is superb. Flight is my first-choice when visiting Memphis.

he waiter was very professional and attentive. Good wine list both red and white. Atmosphere not too quiet. But we were on a very intimate table on the terrace inside. If I will come back in Memphis, I will probably return to Flight Restaurant.

It was my wife's Birthday and we had heard about your restaurant and now we are very glad we did. The food and presentation was fantastic and your bartenders were excellent. The way you can split the entree up 3 ways along with the wine is an excellent idea. We will definitely be going back!!

A standout location in this neighborhood

Dined on April 23, 2016

Flight is a standout in a neighborhood of fairly basic places. The food is interesting, and their approach of offering flights of both the food and the wine (think small-plate) is good. Wine list is interesting and pairs well with the food. The kitchen, however, can be very slow (one hour from ordering to service for us).

A Birthday celebration with two couples - one for the first time (not from Memphis) and the other their second time (Memphians). It was an outstanding dinner. They had our booth reserved as requested. Our waiter, James, was good at explaining the concept of Flight and made good recommendations for the food and wine. (Wine list was extensive but the prices were a bit higher than at other places). We all enjoyed different flights of wines, appetizers and entrees. We will definitely be back the next time in Memphis. Go and enjoy. It is well worth the experience.

Great Business Meeting!

Dined on April 19, 2016

This was my first time dining here. I had heard so much about Flight and it was all that I have heard and more! From the complimentary valet parking to the two-level seating and the unique menu selections, this dining experience was indeed one of the best I've had. The food, ambiance and service were all FIRST CLASS & FIVE STAR! I will definitely be going back... SOON!

Ate there three times when visiting Memphis!

Dined on April 19, 2016

I cannot say enough great things about Flight. The food was very well prepared and innovative, and they have an excellent wine list. The service is top notch, starting with the great bar service (bartenders are so friendly and very efficient). The general manager is walking around constantly providing quality assurance, and the staff and food make it an excellent choice for dinner. Just be sure to get a reservation because everyone knows how good they are, and they're very busy as a result. Next time I head to Memphis I'm making plans for dinner at Flight!

Family Meal on Vacation

Dined on April 18, 2016

We went to Flight with our kids (ages 12 and 14) while in Memphis on vacation and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food was amazing, and the concept is very similar to small plates or tapas-style. The restaurant is very accommodating about switching a dish out of (or into) a flight, but be forewarned - they say that a flight is the same as a normal entrée, and we all agreed that it is MUCH more food, but that is probably because of the sides added to each flight. All in all, we would highly recommend it, but would suggest being creative about sharing flights or combining flights for a group.

Try the strawberry caprese salad, lamb chop (medium rare), sea bass, corn chowder, blueberry crepe. Don't forget the pomegranate martini. I was gesturing too much and knocked over my martini. Before I could blink, someone was getting me another martini, no charge. Then my server arrived and cleaned up my mess. Love the decor, staff is great, food is super.

Great place to eat!

Dined on April 16, 2016

I love this restaurant! The service is great! I love the flight system. I eat very small meals so being able to choose small plates instead of a big entrée is wonderful. The chicken and waffles is one of my favorites. Save room for the dessert! Everyone that I've tried is delicious. I had heard that it was very expensive but the prices are not bad. And one last thing, the free valet parking is great!

Unique Dining Experience

Dined on April 16, 2016

The diner is able to create flights (combinations) of their choosing. For example, you may mix and match soups and salads to create a flight of 3. Or you may just include 3 soups or salads by themselves. You may create 3 entrees as a flight. If you do not want a flight of food you may order as in a "normal" restaurant. The portions are quite generous as we were full with some Brie for the table then we each got a flight of 3 entrees. If you are really hungry you can have larger flights (it's up to the diner). We had no room for dessert! Flight is very popular, as well it should be, so do make a reservation.

Dined on April 13, 2016

Loved the ideas behind this concept, great flavors, presentation, attentive service, no flavor fatigue here. Only downside was we got seated almost 30 minutes past our reservation time. They compted our group champangne and appetizers that helped sooth our group. At the end they forgot to take the appetizers off the bill but when we mentioned it they took it right off. Inspite of the glitches I'd still recommend this restaurant.

Great concept: predetermined flights of 3 entrée items or pick and choose flight portion of any entrée item. Varied selection including many seafoods and a focus on Southern fare. Tasty, esp. shrimp & grits, scallops and bison.

Dined on April 10, 2016

While in Memphis for a long weekend with friends we chose Flight because of the great reviews. Each of us were thrilled. The waiter Chris was terrific in guiding us thru the evening from drinks through each course. We wish other restaurants offered the flight concept. It was a great way to try a few options on the menu....or just to have small portion. The options were many and each was delicious The halibut special cooked to perfection. Others loved the chicken and waggle combo. Those who had the harvest salad said it was the best salad ever. Highly recommend a dinner at Flight.

Birthday Celebration

Dined on April 9, 2016

My mother and I decided to take a short road trip from Baton Rouge, LA to Memphis for her 57th birthday. While making my travel plans and researching, Flight came highly recommended. This place was amazing. The food was sooooo good! The service was excellent. It's a small place, so the tables were a bit close together but not an inconvenience at all. It was a nice atmosphere and an enjoyable experience. It's located in the Downtown area of Memphis, so the complimentary valet parking is a great plus. I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Great Food and Experience

Dined on April 9, 2016

I was in Memphis for the evening at the tale end of a business trip and was able to book a reservation for Saturday night with a co-worker. Reviews online were good so I was looking forward to the meal. I must say I was not let down and the food was very good. I started with a Flight of Wine, then a Flight of Salad, a Flight of Seafood and shared a Flight of Desert. Everything was done to perfection and I really enjoyed all the food. My co-worker choose to get a single portion and said it was the best salad, fish and desert that he has had. Like myself he felt everything was done to perfection and he would highly recommend. I will revisit with my spouse as I know she would love the food and atmosphere as well.
