Variety is the spice of life they say, and this is the rule at Philght. Large menu with plenty to chose from. You can build a nice meal and everything is quite good.

We have eaten in this restaurant many times over the years. The food is consistently good and properly prepared and presented. The staff is, as it was on this last visit, friendly and helpful.

Phlight has always been one of those restaurants that I haven't jumped to due to the buzz around it. I have had some dishes in the past that were really good, so I stick with them. The last time I was there they couldn't figure out how to cook a steak, Medium-rare. I got the steak rare. I asked for... More

They have a nice wine selection and an assortment of very tasty tapas. Big place, well lit, good service. Downside? More on the pricey side.

Visited this restaurant with friends for the first time. The selection was OKAY, not great. One item that really stands out was the lamb. That was delicious. For dessert we ordered chocolate bananas (I think that was the name) and that was the most delicious thing ever.
