Flutter/Dart framework is a new adoption that we started using in our organization only about a year ago when we saw that the framework was becoming more and more stable over time. Currently we use Flutter/Dart for small mobile apps, like apps that are built to replicate/support functionality of a web portal for example
  • Building PURELY NATIVE apps for multiple platforms using one code base
  • Customizing some components to look different based on the platform running the app
  • Excellent performance
  • Integration with most main SDKs you will need
  • The only negative comment is that the web apps built by Flutter are not yet production-ready
If an application is being built specifically for one platform, then it would not really make much sense to use a cross-platform framework like Flutter.
But if you're building for multiple platforms (especially android and iOS) then I would highly recommend it. With Flutter, you can also build web apps, but as I mentioned they were still not production-ready.

After evaluating several graphical framework solutions, we've recently adopted Flutter as our framework of choice for developing native apps on both desktop and mobile platforms. We wanted something that had free and open licensing, solid cross-platform support for Linux, macOS, Windows, iOS, and Android, and a strong ecosystem. Flutter ticks all those boxes and then some.
  • User interface design works great across all platforms, including native styling for iOS/macOS.
  • Native compilation for mobile platforms and a decent rendering engine results in slick apps that can make the most of your device.
  • Dart is a well thought out language and easy to pick up.
  • Makes cross-platform development of good looking GUI apps a doddle.
  • Flutter has a relatively young ecosystem. It's growing fast and looks like it's here to stay, but it will take time for it to mature fully.
  • A problem that plagues all cross-platform GUI frameworks - the 'look and feel' can be awkward to perfect for all targets from a single layout. To be fair, it's hard to see how this could be improved much, and it is worth accepting you may need to use platform specific layouts in some situations.
  • Strong ties to the Dart language may put some developers off, as it's not the widest known of languages. However, it is easy to pick up, and makes for a very pleasant to use, static typed language.
Flutter makes it very easy to build frontend apps for all major platforms, from a single code base, with very few, if any, drawbacks. This is a game-changer, especially if you're a small team or a sole developer without the resources to manage multiple implementations. If you're starting work on a new app and need to target multiple platforms, I believe you won't currently find another solution that will get you up and running as quickly as Flutter does.

If you need to integrate a graphical framework with an existing C/C++/Java/Python project, then Flutter is likely not the solution for you because of its strong ties to Dart. For example, it may make more sense to use something like Qt for your C++ and Python apps. However, if you ever get the chance to re-write it, Flutter will seem like bliss in comparison.
