Flyte World Dining & Wine Ratings and Reviews

We had the Benton's ham appetizer (a great flavor combo) and golden beets with half glasses of recommended wines that paired perfectly. We loved each of our entrees, duck and pork flytes, also with recommended wine pairings. My husband enjoys duck and found this preparation and flavor combination to be different and delicious. My pork dish was a mouth-watering creation, bursting with flavor, just what I was looking for. We liked the mascarpone cheesecake dessert but it was definitely a milder choice. A glass of Churchill port to finish was an absolute treat. I was so pleased to see such a varied, not-run-of -the-mill wine list by the glass and the opportunity to enjoy half-glasses for pairing with each course was really fun for us. We would definitely recommend Flyte to others and give 5 stars to the two entrees we enjoyed.

We enjoyed the food (my scallops were great). Our waiter was friendly, helpful and efficient. We especially were impressed at the spacing of the tables (they were not piled on top of each other), and it was possible to have conversation without shouting to each other (unlike another well-known Nashville restaurant we had previously visited). I go to restaurants to eat. I go to concerts to hear music. Can't handle a restaurant that has obtrusive music going. We gave Flyte a high rating and determined that we will return.

We went for our 25th wedding anniversary. The food was interesting. We split the Scottish salmon, Yukon gold potatoes, & ordered a dessert a piece. This left us comfortablely full. The bread and the potatoes were amazingly WONDERFUL! The salmon was a bit bland, though the broth, noodles & bits of broccoli and carrot made an attractive dish. The olive oil banana dessert was disappointing. I found it "overworked." The marscapone cheesecake with rhubarb purée was delicious, but the candy brittle was a bit "off-putting" because it tasted burned. I could not remember what the unusual small, white nuts were; I found they gave a strange bite/crunch. All staff members , from the owner to the valet, were friendly and thanked us for coming. Servers were very attentive to us. Our primary server was a young woman with an arm band tattoo. She could not have been better. She was warm, knowledgeable, and alert. I consider Flyte pricey, but it provided us with a fun food experience for a special occasion.

We loved every aspect of Flyte! Absolute perfection! We will definitely be back!
Still rocking after all those years
We had not been here in quite some time, but were pleasantly surprised from the minute we walked in. The host was welcoming and very friendly; the waiter told us everything we needed to know about the menu items. Our food was served by one of the original employees/owners of Flyte, and we had a nice conversation with him. The wine list covers Old World and New World wines for decent prices. The food was delicious and extremely well presented.

Perfect Birthday celebration for 2 college age daughters and their moms. Great service. Loved the cocktails, scallops, pork flight, and all the desserts. A bit off the beaten path but worth the effort.

My wife and I enjoy the Nashville food scene with Flyte being one of our top picks. The attention to detail is what sets them apart. The meal was a burst of flavor, a tantalizing adventure for the taste buds!
Great menu, great flavors
Had a great meal at Flyte last Friday night. Something for everybody on the menu. I had the beet salad and then scallops (cooked perfectly) for my entree. Both were great. I'll go back next time in Nashville.

Kevin was awesome. Cute like a lil button. Everyone there was very sweet. They are very attentive to guest needs. Everything tasted good in my mouth. Mmmmmmmmmm.
Had a fabulous meal Especially appreciated the chef noting which items were safe for one of the guests with a food allergy (we gave this info in reservation). Service was wonderful - not too much or too little.

The server was very knowledgeable as it applied to the menu and wine. He was unaware of gluten free options and had to continually check with the kitchen to make sure (which I am ok with). However even after making sure they could provide options that were gluten free, the actual options were pretty slim.
Wonderful late night eats
Great late night Sat dinner came in at 9:45 kitchen closed at 10 and no issues with them seating us. Todd have ua exceptional service....great wine list, wife found her new favorite summer drink, flavorful sea salt crusted filet and a PHENOMENAL chocolate desert nicknamed The Game Changer! Overall very please with dinner!
Great all around!
The food was impeccable, the wine was delicious, the atmosphere was romantic, and the service was outstanding!

Worst meal in a couple of years. Defenitely not what we expected or what we heard from others. Maybe just an anomaly.
It's Good but not Great
I was not wowed here. The food was good, just not great. Don't get me wrong, there was nothing bad about the place, but it was just not a great meal, it was average .Desert was probably the best. I think there is a lot of hype about the place, maybe it's a little pretentious, maybe it's trendy, I'm not sure. Overall, I would not return as there was really nothing about what any of our party got that was worth going back for. And For the record, a crab cake should be bigger than the size of a marshmallow.
Enjoyed the atmosphere and vibe of the restaurant. Excellent service and food. It was a pleasure to have the southern food experience along with an elevated twist. Would put on my recommended list. Thanks for a wonderful time during my visit to Nashville.

The staff at Flyte are the best. Maggie is one of the most knowledgeable, charming, delightful, servers at any restaurant I've been to in Nashville. She epitomizes the notion of customer service. You should ask for her when you go!!
Good wine list & accomadiating my gluten-free diet
The service was spectacular. The food was outstanding and they were excellent at accommodating my gluten free diet. Seasonal menu with fresh ingredients. Loved the bartender's attention (Michael) and his margarita's !

We're from a foodie area where local creative options are the norm so we were so excited to find flyte! Awesome food, atmosphere and service.
One of Nashville's gems
Flyte is some of the best fine dinning in Nashville, but they have a new menu often, so returning is a treat rather than a bore. Remarkably, everything on the menu always fits together with a subtle synergy. The starters, vegetables, and entries complement each other without any one overpowering the meal. Portions are appropriate to leave room to enjoy yourself from appetizers to deserts. The cured, not sliced, Tennessee country ham micro thin sliced and served with whipped honey and mustard seeds was a special treat. I tried the turnips and apples as a challenge to the chef: He can't make me like turnips, but he succeeded. Delicious. Scott, our waiter, knew the menu and his wines. He paired us perfectly for our dishes. If you are close take Uber or a DD to enjoy the depth of their wine cellar with a different glass or two with each course. If you appreciate fine dinning, then Flyte will please.
Third time at Flyte
This was our third time at Flyte. The first two times were good. They must have had an off night. Spent $300 for average food and slow service.

Food and wine were delicious! Service was slow, in spite of the restaurant not being very busy.
Excellent for Birthday
I brought a group of 8 to the restaurant for my wife's birthday and had an excellent experience. The service was top notch. We felt like we were appreciated and valued customers, which does not always happen in Nashville. Food was great and wine selection by the staff was great as well. Highly recommend for special occasions and groups.

Food was amazing all cooked to perfection. We had the salmon, pork tenderloin and scallops. All were extremely tasty and cooked perfectly. Great food great service.
First time visit
We enjoyed our first visit to Flyte. We've been meaning to go for some time, and finally made it. Very pleasant atmosphere--not too loud or crowded. Good parking. Our entrees (salmon and the pork flight) were very good. The side of purple top turnips was really good and the green bean starter was my favorite. We'll be back.

Celebrated wedding anniversary. Everything was GREAT! Thank you Flyte.
Best kept secret in Nashville..
My favorite restaurant in town. All the staff are outstanding but I especially enjoy Will, he makes every meal special. Great people, awesome food...highly recommended!!!
Seeing an old Friend
While, visiting the Executive Chef whom is also a close friend. My wife and I were given a tour of the menu. A great wine selection and also impelable service. The meals were wholesome and very comforting. The deviled egg flyte actually rivals anyother deviled egg i tasted in the past. The pork tenderloin was cooked to perfection mingling well with the the apples it was shingled upon. The scallops were very tender and warm and inviting with the jasmine rice. The last suprise of the night and i will say we left bursting at the seems, was the coffee ice cream. It truly stopped me from needing a cup of coffee the rest of the night.
Very good, but...
Excellent phone communication prior to the event, which was a birthday dinner for two. Caller asked all the right questions to make the reservation seem imporant to the restaurant. First the very good part: Two complimentary glasses of champagne served upon being seated to celebrate the occasion; excellent and innovative preparation of sea scallop entree; tender, delicious, and perfectly cooked filet of beef tenderloin entree; lovely dessert of pot a creme shared. The not so good: Champagne served without mention or care (we could have missed it entirely!); the wedge salad we shared was pedestrian at best and because we split it, the cost for it was $11; the California red wine flight we shared was disappointingly unremarkable. Not one among the three was worthy of being included, in our opinion. The noise level was very high, which seems to be the usual in restaurants these days, and didn't allow easy conversation. Not an environment for a romantic evening! Lastly, our waiter, though efficient was on automatic pilot and showed no actual interest in our presence. He hardly waited for our responses to his inquiries before dashing off. I think his attitude greatly colored our experience at this restaurant. It was an expensive dinner for a special occasion and we should feel better about it than we do.

Service by server Todd was awesome. Scallop entree was great however Salmon entree was a bit bland and could be improved. Wine flight was a great experience and appetizer of devil eggs and beef and broccoli were very good.
We were looking forward to our meal at Flyte, we had heard numerous positive reviews. It's not that is was bad, it just didn't live up to the hype. Our main server was very aloof although he did have a good wine recommendation. The other servers, some that brought food and cleared, were much more pleasant and I could see that if one of them had been our main server, we would have been happier. However, the food was fine, not great as we were expecting but not bad either.
Friday night outing!
Fabulous. Excellent place, from the drinks in the bar...to the service in the dining room, top notch!! Food combinations that are new and exciting. We had stumbled on this place, we will definitely be back with friends!!
Good, not great
Flyte is a hallmark place in Nashville, with a history of providing a fine dining experience. Our last few visits have been good, just not great like it once was. This time was no different. Not sure what's going on, but it isn't quite what it was in our experience/opinion
Great food, service, and atmosphere!
