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.

Great find in Whittier. Love the taste of unique and tasty tapas. A must when you're in Whittier. The kale salad is a must.

Nestled on Bright street one block behind Greenleaf Avenue in Uptown Whittier. Phlight has a nice ambiance, tasty tapas and a good selection of beer and wines. Service is friendly and prompt. I personally like the fish tacos and the enfrijoladas dish is also excellent. Good selection of fresh tasty food and drink in quaint Uptown Whittier. Hometown of Richard... More

Melt in your mouth and its so good, I love this place for this item alone. It's always packed so get a good spot in the parking structure across the street.
