Flight Restaurant & Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
We were looking forward to dining at Flight as we'd never been there. However, we were disappointed. The menu looked good, but the food was actually just average. The appetizers and entrees were smaller and less flavorful than expected. Also, the restaurant promotes their large number of wines by the glass, but they actually had only two Chardonnays. On a positive note, our waiter and other staff were friendly and efficient, and the location and ambiance were nice. It wasn't a terrible experience but we won't make an effort to return.
good location and excellent service - food was fair. the appetizers are high priced and very small portions. was represented as ok for business discussion - was not - very noisey and hard to hear. all table small and so large group had to be put togther in long rectangle and thus we could not hear nor talk to the entire group. would be a good place for bar scene - did have very nice wine flights.
We were a little disappointed with our experience. The staff seemed to be trying to rush us forward to get us out and the next guests in. I had to stop a bus boy from removing a plate I wasn't finished with and our waitress seemed too intent on starting our next course on her schedule. The appetizers were mostly tasteless. The breading on the calimari had no seasoning and the blackened fish tacos too little sauce and cold tortillas. Our drink flights were decent and entrees were better than the appetizers but we still felt like we left wishing we had enjoyed it more. We'll probably give them another try but that visit better sparkle or we won't return.
We had an outstanding meal and experience at Flight. Great service and excellent food! The specials were very good--my wife had the sea bass and I had the shrimp/crab linguine. The dessert was incredible--the mini doughnuts. We have been to Flight a number of times and always have an excellent experience.
The menu had a number of dishes that if successful would have made this as prime dinner spot. Unfortunately, the two dishes we tried (surf & turf, and pork belly risotto) had problems. The surf and turf was supposed to come with lobster mashed potatoes, but the mashed potatoes were bland and lobster-free. The risotto might have been good if the chef had stuck to the basics - a risotto cooked with cubed pork belly and Parmesan is hard to beat. Alas, the chef at Flight inexplicably cooked the risotto with sweet pickles instead (maybe Gardena) and added a slab of pork belly on top (not really part of the risotto). The result was a mess of flavors that just don't belong together and may be the worst risotto I have ever had. Appetizers and desserts were high points. Highly recommend the donuts on the desert menu. For entree, I would recommend sticking to burgers and fries.
Recently dined at Flight again. First time we had a great experience. This time - still good, but not great. We shared a number of appetizers and each had wine. Loved that appetizers were 1/2 off until 7pm on Tuesday! Herbed fries with sauces were very good - nice flavor and texture. Tuna tacos were good but need a bit more kick. Hummus plate was good but not that special. Warm brussels sprout salad was different and very good. Great wine selection. Friendly, helpful server. Not as great as our first visit, but the menu is interesting enough and service is great, so we'll be back.
We were seated promptly when we arrived. Our waitress started using off with great cocktail and wine recommendations. The menu was varied, my Chicken Francaise was delicious. Everyone in our party enjoyed their entrées, which were of similar high quality. We were surprised when the waitress brought out a serving of beignets with dipping icing to help celebrate hubby's birthday. We'Lloyd definitely be back!
I went with my husband and best friend for my birthday. The service was outstanding. There was a short of a wait despite having made a reservation, however the manager, Steve, went above and beyond to make up for it. The food was fantastic, the wine was delicious and the entire staff was superb. I truly could not have asked for a better experience for my birthday and will definitely go back.
We had a group of 5 to celebrate a birthday, and Flight turned out to be the perfect spot!
The menu has so many options, that it makes it fun to order many appetizers to share, and then order salads or main entrees, depending on appetites. The food was delicious, the flights of wine add a fun element, but even more memorable was the service. Our waiter, Anthony, was very attentive, and went way beyond our expectations to provide a festive birthday dinner. We all agreed that Flight is a restaurant we will return to soon!
Unfortunately, this was not the best experience I had at flight.
We were ignored for approximately 10 minutes when we walked in, then sat at the bar, where we were ignored for another 10 minutes. Finally seated, we placed an order for a dish, and 20 minutes later were told that it was suddenly unavailable, and the flatbread pizza we had instead with inedible.
They did remove the flatbread from our bill, and we hope our next visit will be better.
I originally made a reservation for a party of 8 for a surprise wedding shower. I received last minute RSVPs, which changed my reservation to 14. I called the restaurant and they were very accommodating even though this was the day before the event. They gave us a nice spot in the back corner with plenty of space to mingle with everyone in our group. Our server was very attentive and provided such a pleasant experience. On top of that, the food was fantastic. We mainly ordered appetizers to share from the goat cheese to the bang bang shrimp. It was the perfect setting for a small work event. This was my first time dining at Flight and I will definitely be back.
👍🖒 you have to try the appetizers the blackened tuna tacos unbelievable but the best was bang bang shrimp entrees were really good the planked salmon is unbelievable great sauce healthy chicken alla vodka great the tables for two are quite small kinda reminded me of a coffee shop not ideal for a dinner but perfect for just casual small details but overall great place
