    Fleming's is a chain steakhouse. They are all over the country (at least I presume, since I've been to the locations in LA and Birmingham). However, it doesn't feel like a typical chain restaurant. Both locations I've been to keep some charm that makes the restaurant feel thoughtfully created. The wait staff was very nice and on point, and the food was excellent. Everything we tried from the apps to the dinner to the sides were all incredibly good. I had the swordfish myself, while most of the table had steaks. There were zero complaints.

    A bit expensive but great food as always. The reservations were questionable. We were passed over a couple of times with same time reservations. Not sure but wondering if "Open Table" reservations come to them differently than regular call in reservations. We were asked twice who our reservations were under.

    I'm never disappointed when I dine at Fleming's at this time was no exception! Our server, Meg, made sure everything was wonderful from the wine to the entree. I chose the double chicken breast which was very most and tender. My husband had the scallops which were cooked to perfection. The sides are always enough to share. Fleming's is always my go to restaurant!

    I travel quite a bit and always enjoy the local gems but, when in doubt, one can always count on Flemings to deliver. The service is solid, the quality of the food is above average. My favorite part of eating at Flemings is enjoying the great collection of Thomas Arvis proofs.

    My husband and I went to celebrate our Anniversary. It's football season so it wasn't very crowded which helped with the noise level. I had the scallops and he had the lobster; I just knew he would get steak! Anyway, his lobster was delicious and my scallops were good. They were a little sweet which I didn't care too much for but that is just my personal preference. I must say my dirty martini was perfection! We were pleasantly surprised when our waiter brought out a $25 gift card and box of chocolate truffles at the end of our meal. An unexpected Anniversary gift from the folks at Fleming's. We really enjoyed our experience there and are looking forward to going back soon.

    My husband and I went to Flemings for our anniversary. I had never been. He had been there but I had not. The ambiance was nice for our special occasion and our server was wonderful. His name was Ben. We appreciated the box of chocolate truffles, the $25 Gift Card and the complimentary valet. My husband is on crutches and having the car waiting as we walked out of the restaurant was nice. We both had rib-eye steaks. My husband said his was wonderful. Mine was very tender but had no flavor whatsoever. Our side of potatoes was sitting in grease. Our molten-lava cake was burned. For a meal of $170 (NO alcohol) plus tip I was very disappointed. I did not make my complaints known as I did not want to ruin the evening for my husband.

    There is nothing negative about this restuarant except the price. Every dish was excellent but I have have just as good for half the price. Main courses are not served with a side which unless you can agree with the person you are ding with one the same one, you end up purchasing 2 @ 10 ea. Salads were good but also served a la carte. We will definitely reserve this one for special occasions.

    Of course the food was outstanding, but the service and attention paid to our table by all the wait staff responsible for our table was unsurpassed by any place I've been before. The knowledge of the menu, the wine list with pairing suggestions, and the ease of transition from appetizer to the salad course and then to the entrée was seamless. The food, service , and overall experience was well worth the expense.

  • Good….Sides were too Salty
    cooks4uVIP
    Dined on 8/9/2014
    Steaks were well prepared, although there was a bit too much gristle for a steak of that price point. The sides were fine, but were way over seasoned which really took away from the flavor instead of enhancing the side. We were a bit disappointed. This meal was way over priced for the quality that was presented. We could have eaten at a James Beard award restaurant in the area for less. The service however was good and the wine pairing was excellent. We hadn't eaten here in several years and wanted to give it another opportunity. I don't think we will be dining here often. It isn't bad, it just isn't good enough to pay these prices when there are better options in the area for less.

    My niece was exhausted and didn't want to make dinner plans for our group of 6, after all, it was her birthday! I looked up top 10 restaurants in the area and found Fleming's. I made the reservation and requested something special be done for the Birthday Girl. I also ordered our meals in advance, from salad to desserts. No one in our party had been to this restaurant so I was taking a chance which exceeded my expectations. The table was decorated with mints and a birthday card from the staff. Our food was excellent and everyone was pleased with their meal. After dinner the waiter brought a gift certificate to my niece and chocolate truffles. I could have planned this day for weeks and not have had a more enjoyable time.

    When looking for a steak in Birmingham, this is the place to go. Extensive wine list and a very limited beer list for those of us who want beer (they have Duvel and an Ommegang). The food is prepared perfectly, the service is excellent. We tried a bit of everything on Saturday, I doubt the steaks really need reviewing. Seared perfectly, finished with butter, etc. What stood out the most was the Roasted Mushroom Ravioli and French Quarter Barbeque Shrimp appetizers. The Shrimp dish wasn't quite what we were expecting: it was better, in a slightly creamy sauce that I haven't typically seen in the New Orleans style bbq shrimp dishes I've tried previously. And the porcini butter sauce: I don't care how many calories per bite it is. Yum.

    Dined on 7/22/2014
    We had a small group for a business dinner. Lots of appetizers and beef all around. The food was very good, and the quality of steaks were first rate and not the least shy in size and sizzle. Table consensus was that the Mac and Cheese is the best in the universe and could easily be a entrée. With the exception of the Carpaccio, the appetizers were bold in flavor and very sharable. Salads and side dishes were very tasty as well and perhaps not suited for someone on a diet. Hence the flavor. Service was exceptional, spirited and personalized. Ambience was about what you would expect from a moderately high-end chain.

    We often use Fleming's for entertaining out-of-town guests and for special occasions, and lately have been including more often, as the staff there is so well trained and the food never disappoints. This is an excellent choice in the ever expanding Greater Birmingham "foodie" scene. Highly recommended.

    Our party of six was well treated from the moment we arrived and were quickly shown to our table through our departure valet having brought the car up as we stepped outside. The food was excellent quality and prepared exactly to each person's request. Our server was very attentive and never missed pouring the wine and checking on us carefully. The seafood tower appetizer was a great start, highly recommend it. Our steaks and chops were perfectly prepared. We chose a good variety of sides. The scalloped potatoes were exemplary. This is a great place to share a wonderful dinner and perfect for business entertaining.

    we took an early dinner reservation 6p. Not many people in at that time, the service was very good attentive staff. We ordered a BBQ shrimp appetizer it was very tasty ( recommend ) my wife ordered a salad which she seemed to enjoy believe it was the Fleming salad...main course consisted of filets for all three of us..ordered mine med....came out as ordered and very tender ( 8oz ) great flavor. If you have not visited Flemings, their menu is ala cart. Wife and daughter order a glass of red wine I do not remember which one but do know they enjoyed it...sorry not much help for the wine lovers out there but they do have quite a wine list..over all a good dining evening.

    We dined with a group of four. Three of the group had the fillets (both petite and main) and one of our group had one of the specials. The special was a steak with bearnaise sauce with crab meat. The fillets were excellent but the special was terrible. The member of our party said it had a lot of fat in it and was very greasy. If I had known earlier in the meal I would have had it sent back to the kitchen. This experience did not make for a good dining experience for the entire group.
