    I went here with my boyfriend and had a wonderful time. Our server was very attentive and enjoyable. We started off with the calamari, which we both agreed was the best calamari we have had, which is something we usually order on the menu if its an option. I had the Alaskan king crab legs and they were delicious. My boyfriend had the rib-eye (bone out) and it was cooked perfectly. We also shared Flemings potatoes which were also very tasteful.

    This is the second time we've eaten at Fleming's. The first was a good experience though extremely expensive. This time the food just didn't live up to the expense. There was nothing special about the bread. Everything is a la carte, so a $50 steak was just that. A $50 steak. My steak was flavorless and had a large tendon running throughout. My husband's steak was over-cooked. The seafood "tower" (market price) was simply two or three pieces of various shellfish on a bed of ice. No drawn butter. There were three of us. We got the seafood tower, steaks, two beers, two glasses of wine and two sides = $300. Just not good or special enough to warrant that price.

    This was our 2nd time dining at Flemings. Service was outstanding this time and I greatly appreciate that, tho it was super quiet and slow at the time we dined. Food was very good and have no complaints there. My only disappointment was the prices. We are accustomed to fine dining and happy to pay, but it seems pricing here is at the extreme top, and compared to other great steak houses in the city, just not sure its worth it. If we were to go back we would go on Sunday when they have the prime rib special which includes a salad and a side for $40. That pricing is most reasonable, what we had on our first visit, and the meal was excellent. Perhaps the best prime rib we've had! If money is not a concern, then you will have a great meal here!

    Room was a little loud. Food is always good. we received a tomato salad in which the tomatoes had become soft. We mentioned this to the waiter. He replaced the salad and removed it from the bill. Both our waiter and the wine steward were extremely knowledgeable about wine and very engaging. All the recommendations for food and wine were spot on.

    I had nine for dinner. I am not a negative person, but realize these comments are to help businesses understand where to improve. As I marked, the food was fair, as well as the service and it was noisy. Should not expect to get good seafood at a steak place, but my king crabs were over done and tasteless. No one at my table was praising the meal and we had everything from lobster to steaks. The lobster mac and cheese was our favorite and its just a side. The tab was the highest all week at $150/person without tip.

    We started with the mushroom ravioli appetizer. Very good with the brown butter sauce. We both ordered the Newport filet medium rare. It's the perfect size and comes with the Fleming's potatoes. We ordered a side of the creamed spinach. Again, very good. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    My husband and I had earned a $40 Amex dining credit to Fleming's so we took a free evening and decided to give it a try. I was so impressed with the entire process. We were warmly greeted upon our arrival, taken to a table of our choice (highly recommend dining in front of the upstairs windows as it offers a beautiful view with all of the city lights on display!), and even asked if we would prefer light or dark napkins! Nice touch:) We are wine enthusiasts and regrettfully the bottle we selected was not a good choice . The waiter took it upon himself to get the manager and they allowed us another selction and did not charge us for the first bottle. We found this to be very gracious. Food was excellent! We will definately return!!

    I've had great dining experiences at the Fleming's chain of steak houses in Los Angeles and was looking for the same attention to detail, service and food while in Chicago, and that's what we got. The porterhouse we ordered came just the way we ordered it (true medium), and it was delicious. The wait staff was friendly and attentive without hovering. Definately recommend this place to my steak loving friends.

    Overall, we were impressed with the food. We chose prime rib with various sides. Perhaps one of the best prime rib dinners we've had. Room is lovely and Good cocktails! My only disappointment was the service. At first the waiter was quite friendly, but he was inconsistent in his attention to us VS other tables around us. He spent an inordinate amount of time with a table behind us and was quite chatty and friendly with them. We started to get the feeling that he simply did not like us personally. Kind of odd. One would expect consistent service and attention. It was not a busy night so it was hard not to notice that we were not treated the same. Too bad. We might have come back but there are too many other great steak houses in the city.

    We had a very capable waiter who made some excellent suggestions. With so many steak houses in Chicago, Flemings food holds its own. It also has a very nice atmosphere. It has a comformortable and upperscale casual vibe. We ordered a filet and ribeye, both were done perfectly. Only gripe is we ordered a side of mashed potatoes to share. Generally, steak restaurants have very generous side for sharing. I thought this side was a littl small if its intended to share. Otherwise, a really good dining experience.

    This is a restaurant that REALLY gets it right!! We had superior service from everyone, waiter, manager etc. Their food was outstanding and one thing we liked it that they had a iPad with a interactive wine list that was awesome! Food was VERY good. One of THEE best steaks we've had in Chicago. And don't forget dessert. We had THEE best chocolate molten cakes ever! THAT ONE went to the head of the class!! A bit pricey but when that is backed up by great value, then its not an issue!

    The bone-in strip was seared with a good flavor, but they could not get it cooked to my liking (medium-well) even with two attempts. The staff and management were very attentive. The place is getting a little old and their is a slight damp smell in the place (stronger in the bar area downstairs that it is upstairs). I liked the Fleming salad and the ice cream more than the steak. However, it was okay for the most part.

    Another great steakhouse in Chicago. Crab cakes were excellent. Loved the bone in ribeye cooked to perfection. Wife had a nice filet. The sides are not gigantic like the other steakhouses. Smaller appetizers as well. The calamari was also quite good. They have private rooms for larger parties and meetings. Service is impeccable and friendly. Near the mag mile and Marriott hotel. Great location. More reasonably priced than Gibsons or Mastros.

    Good happy hour menu/prices. Always love the chili calamari and also the baked brie (appetizers). Table/Booth service in the bar tends to be quite slow when it's busy. Our server was nice enough, but seemed to be "new". Drinks, the 2 apps, one pork chop, one steak/lobster special (I only knew about this since it was online-they didn't have specials posted and server didn't tell us about it until I asked about it specifically), one steak, side of mushrooms (will pass on those next time), side of Fleming potatoes (YUM), and one carrot cake.... for $250 plus, $50 tip (even though we were less than thrilled with the service; I was a server before and think it's good to tip 20% min)....$300 all in for 3 people.
