We loved our meal and drinks at Flight! We got our food and drinks in a timely manner and we loved that the server gave us information about our flights, charcuterie, and meals as she served them. I also felt very safe with their COVID protocols! It was quick and easy to check in with my vaccine card, and both staff and patrons were great about wearing masks. I'll definitely be returning!

Our original waitress was extremely slow. The table behind us has to stand up and get the cheque because nobody would show up. We had to flag down another waiter to take our order. We had a wonderful experience the first time we went, but the service we got this time was nothing compared. We wish we had the same experience as last time.

We ordered 2 cheeses and prosciutto— very tasty. We also got the grilled mixed veggies and hummus— also very tasty and good. The wines (Star Spangled Banner) and cider we had were also tasty.

We had fantastic wine flights and the delicious cheese board before dinner elsewhere. The owners were so accommodating and offered cocktail recommendations for the lone non wine drinker. We had so much fun we ended our evening with a nightcap back at Flight. I don’t think I’ve ever frequented the same bar twice in one night. Excellent all around!

I was looking forward to Flight, but was ultimately pretty disappointed. The wait staff was extremely curt and seemed to be pressuring us constantly — either to order, to order more, or to wrap up. This was a bit confusing because, as it is, there was barely anyone there. In other words, folks weren’t waiting for a table to open up. I found the general atmosphere to be uncomfortable, and frankly, the wines I tasted were nothing much to speak of. Acceptable, but nothing great. Certainly not worth it and will not be returning or recommending.
