A great restaurant must have a pleasing aesthetic style and delicious food. Flight Restaurant and Wine Bar in Glenview, IL. succeeds on both counts. A bonus is having great people-watching opportunities if that’s your choice - as well as privacy to carry out conversations with your date, mate or friends.
My husband and I were given the opportunity to taste-test the food and the wine samplings (called flights), compliments of owner Steve Herzon In a shopping center with quite a few restaurant choices, it was our lucky night to wine and dine at Flight. I’m more interested in returning and checking out the rest of the menu than trying out some of the familiar chain restaurants in this shopping maze.
The American, eclectic menu is available for dinner only from Monday through Sunday. For starters, we enjoyed the Ahi tuna plate and the beet salad. Yummy. From there, our main courses were Cedar Plank Roasted Salmon and the Meyer Ranch Skirt Steak topped with Parmesan cheese and onions. More yummy. And there’s literally multiple choices to fit anybody’s dining preferences.
There are cheese plates and snack plates (hummus, fish tacos, beef and pork sliders, etc.) which are convenient light bites to go along with their amazing selection of wine, beer and mixed bar drinks. Two separate areas are available to eat or drink whatever you wish – one in the bar where people sit on high stools conversing the night away and the restaurant area which has lovely place settings available for a leisurely dinner.
Sean Munoz, the general manager, was our guide through both the drinking and dining menu. Attentive and extremely knowledgeable, his answers to our many questions made our frequent conversations interesting and intriguing. The Chef de Cuisine is Christopher Cunningham. The in-house wine director is Adam Bloom, who eagerly offered assistance in choosing the perfect complement to our food.
The restaurant features a beautiful bar area which seats 30 people. The restaurant seats 60. You can book a table online .
