FLYTE Ratings and Reviews

Parking was easy (complimentary valet) and very efficient. The bar area was so cool - great place to hang out with friends! The appetizers (we had 3!) were so delicious, especially the gnudi. The house cocktails were equally good. The entrees were FABULOUS: our table had the filets, the seafood stew, and the duck breast(!!). All the main dishes were prepared perfectly, although the roasted potatoes accompanying the filets were hard and undercooked. Desserts were excellent too (order the apple crumble or the panna cotta!), as were our after-dinner drinks. The only negative for us was the service - the waiter got our drink orders wrong twice, which was frustrating. The second time, we didn't even bother with correcting it. We will definitely go again, but will request a different waiter.

While Flyte has slowly evolved since it's opening - the focus no longer on flytes (pairings) of food/wine for each course - with a new chef aboard and a remodeled dining area, it remains one of the better restaurants in Nashville. The bar is welcoming with an excellent selection of spirits and creative cocktails. A great place to await your table or meet with friends after work. The food remains locally sourced, is creatively prepared and well presented. Service is outstanding from the moment you walk in the door until you exit. Definitely a restaurant I continue to enjoy and recommend to friends.

One of the best restaurant I have enjoyed in Nashville. Very creative dishes. Great wine list. Knowledgeable Somalia. Easy access with complimentary valet parking. Definitely a must try restaurant. The noise level might be a bit high for a romantic evening. However if you are going out with friends it has a great vibe and fantastic food.

We enjoyed our evening. There was a large crowd in the bar area having a good time but didn't disturb our dinning. We ordered the drum fish over lentils as well as scallops. The fish was prepared perfectly however the scallops were a little over cooked and a little tough to chew.
We want let that stop us from returning.
The staff was attentive and very polite.

The service we received at Flyte was outstanding - everyone was very polite and attentive. Our main entree, a pork 'flyte', was delicious - the pork belly in particular was far better than I've had anywhere else. The homemade focaccia bread was amazing. Much of the rest of the menu was a little more eclectic than I usually look for, but I think 'real' foodies would find it quite appealing.

Amazing! Exquisite food, exceptional service, great staff. Had a client in town for the weekend, went to Flyte for a memorable meal. I had the duck, which was amazing. My wife, and clients had Cobia, Steak, and Salmon. All were expertly prepared and presented artfully. The wine list is extensive and reasonable. We highly recommend Flyte as THE place for a wonderful meal, with exceptional service, food prepared from locally produced ingredients.

The food was fabulous, but expect to spend some money as this was the most expensive meal we had while in Nashville. I had the duck FLYTE which was absolutely delicious and just enough food that you were not overly full when done and left room for dessert! Deviled eggs are to die for so make sure you order them as well. the Naked Chicken also a bit hit. salad FLYTE and the beet salad with the jalapeno vinaigrette are also something to try and the vinaigrette is spicy. The chocolate pot de crème with olive oil gelato was also interesting with the gelato, but worth it. All in all would definitely go back and recommend, but will make sure I don't get the same waiter. It took him forever to wait on us, didn't offer drinks, and was pretty much absent during our time there. Being in the business myself I am overly patient with staff, but this was just awful and one of the worst I have ever had.

Our service and hostess was awesome. However our 2 top table was really long and ackward making it hard to talk. The ambience wasn't great. The appetizers were better than the entrées.

I have posted previous reviews qualifying Flyte as one of the two best restaurants in Nashville. I am writing again for two reasons. No matter how many times I have dined there, there is always an exquisite surprise in the menu (a soup yesterday). Secondly, there has been recent refurbishing of the premises, with good taste and an impact on noise, which is reduced. A bit expensive but unquestionably worth the experience every time

We went to their 10th anniversary celebration to try their Flytes and check out the new decor! What a meal!!! Appetizer: Spring roll & deviled eggs, Salad or soup, pork or duck entrees, sorbet or chocolate for dessert. The service at Flyte is always beyond measure! Never hurried. Our waiter Damien, (also phenomenal bartender and cocktail menu developer) was a delight. Everyone well versed on meal, preparation, local providers. Manager Will and owner Scott came by to welcome us and thank us for dining with them. We go 4-6 times a year and we were remembered!

Absolutely great. Starting with the bartender who made a custom cocktail to order that was one of the best I've ever had. The host who was very friendly and accommodating. Then
the fantastic wine list. The server who was very courteous and attentive. The food - absolutely delicious; fantastic pasta/one of the best duck breasts ever. The Exec. Chef came out to talk.
What a wonderful meal! Loved everything about it. Underrated in Nashville in my opinion; one of the very best.

Absolutely great dinner! The food was so delicious! We were a group of 6 and order the pad Thai popcorn which had great flavors, also order a shrimp pesto pasta appetizer. The pesto was to die for! We all ordered a different entree and enjoyed every bit. On top of the great food, the service was excellent! Will, the manager, took care of us and Todd our waiter was great. Todd knew the menu really well and gave great recommendations! The whole staff was just excellent!! FLYTE is a must if you're looking for great food with great service!
