  • A Return Visit

    Dined on 10/18/2014
    It was a multi-birthday visit for several family members, at the request of the honorees, who had been there two weeks before. The appetizers and entrees were just perfect, and just what we remembered. Unfortunately, the creamed spinach, a featured dish, cooled too quickly. The dessert tray was impressive, and the fresh strawberries were beautiful and delicious.

    We gave gone here for tears and snjiy our visit every time! Yet, I have noticed that some of their " specials" are not do special & lack in portion! I tried the Pan Sear Scallops w spinach last night, and there were THREE Scallops w a few leafs of sautéed spinach! Tiny & a little " chewy" firmly taste! The rest of my party enjoyed their steaks & Filets. (Which I highly recommend you stick to!--- or one if their chicken dishes!-- or even Salmon!) I tried a " special" on a whimp, but will stick to the usual next time!). I like this place because its close, CONVIENT , and we try to eat local to support out local small businesses--- Otherwise a very enjoyable night w our out-of-town family!

    My husband and I visited Flames on Wed. for our anniversary. My husband decided he'd like a good steak dinner. Were we ever disappointed! I had filet mignon which was a large portion, cooked to my specification but lacked any flavor. It was very bland, totally unseasoned, not worth the price. My husband had the aged porterhouse which was cooked to his specification but again, was bland, unseasoned. I had the crab cake appetizer was very good and my husband had the blue point oysters which he enjoyed. Ironically, the seafood was better than the steaks in a steakhouse. Well, those reviewers who rate Flames with other well known steakhouses obviously have never been to them.

    Been going here for years. They recently did a renovation and it looks fantastic. You don't have to go to NYC to get a great steak. Meet is aged and cooked perfectly. Sides are delicious and the portions are steak house ample. Although the prices are high (after all its a top notch steak house), it's well worth it.

    Took my husband and 3 small children here for Father's Day, not really a child friendly restaurant but because it was Father's Day it was fine. Filet Mignon on the bone was excellent, Burratta superb! Only issue I had was there was a piece of sharp metal sticking out of one of the chairs and my daughter cut her finger on it. Waiter barely acknowledge the issue and didn't even apologize!!

    In The renovations,they have changed the wonderful menu our staple favorites. They NEED to hard more seafood dishes, like grilled scallops and shrimp to their already wonderful broiled Salmon. We enjoyed three different types steak cuts, and the filet and on the bone rib eye were the fastest. (The steak for one was not as tasty and a little tough/chewy)........all the meals were wonderful, but two of our diners could not find anything on their limited menu to fit their dietary needs. They had a "special price fix mothers menu, but there were no good chooses on that limited menu. As for wait staff, they are superior as always! This is a favorite place for us, but some of their old food options return to the menu! Thank you!

    My wife, daughter and I had a great meal here. Service was great and the food was even better. You're certainly paying for the quality, but it is worth it for a special occasion dinner or a night on the town. Dry aged steak was cooked to perfection (was on level with Lugers). Surf and Turf was great, with a very large lobster tail complementing a delicious filet. Sides were great and perfect proportions. We went early (5:45), so bringing a 4 year old wasn't a problem. She was welcomed by all, which made us feel very comfortable. We look forward to dining at Flames again soon!

    We had a fabulous meal on Friday night at Flames.The setting was beautiful and comfortable. Everything I ate was delicious and served beautifully. The special avocado and tomato salad was superb and our filets on the bone were fantastic. The only issue was that the steak was served on sizzling hot plates which were put directly on the table. My husband got a little splash of grease on his cheek.....my suggestion is to serve table side. That being said, I would go back in a heartbeat...the food and service was spectacular.

    I ate here on valentines day. My waiter was absolutely awful, he was slow and seemed like he had no idea what he was doing. Not to mention I didn't receive a single refill of my water glass. I basically left the restaurant thirsty. The only good thing about this place was the steak, I have no complaints. I also ordered the eggplant rollitini which was served cold. The bread was stale and cold. And the broccoli rab tasted as if they burnt the garlic which gives an awful taste. Lastly my side potato tasted as if it sat out for an hour before I received it. Overall I would never go back to this place.

    Definitely a classy place, with great food, a quiet place where you can talk and enjoy each other easily, nice wines, and they will let you have a taste to be sure when you order. The only thing is that it is a bit high priced, so you will want it more for an occasion, than a regular place.

    Second time we have gone here. Both times food was great. Portions are big ands ervice is attentive. Only problem is the prices. A filet was $59.95. These are NY prices. I think if they lowered their prices by decreasing the quantity of food (the chicken was enough for two people) the restaurant would be packed. The steak was that good.

    Resident for over 20 years, and work in NYC where I have been to just about every great and VG restaurant (including the best steak houses). I have given Flames a few chances to show me what they can deliver for the high prices they charge (remember, their costs do not include NYC rents, labor, etc.) The quality of the meat is generally good but as other diners have noted, they are oversalted. Service is inattentive and spotty - our waiter did not have a good understanding of the different cuts and visits to check the table were about 15-20 mins apart (way too long even for a Sat night). Water glass remained unfilled all that time. A non-meat eater had chicken parmigiana, a grade above what you would find in a red and white tablecloth

    Very expensive and I'm not convinced it's worth it. I had sirloin, one of the less expensive steak entrees and it turned out to be a huge portion of sliced steak, enough for two. There wAs gristle on the end. My endive salad was $11 and undistinguished. Pecan pie was not sweet, tho vanilla ice cream helped. All the side dishes were extra but at least they were tasty.
