A fine evening and the Sunday Primerib special is just great!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, pretty expensiveGreat food, pretty expensive but that was expected. A little pretentious with 2 different color napkins and chilled fork for such a tiny salad! Food was very good, service was good.

Given that the restaurant wasn't full during this visit. I had to ask to get an item corrected /removed since it was never brought out. Wait staff wasn't attentive enough to the point that another wait staff checked up on our table.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, great food!Great service, great food! Perfect date night spot!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always enjoy Flemings,We always enjoy Flemings, have never had a bad meal there. This visit we decided to stay in the bar area so we could watch the Masters on TV. They only had one TV at the very end of the bar and two employees stood right in front of it, hanging out and watching the golf as well. This made it difficult for others to see everything. It appeared they had no idea they were blocking the view for guests and just stood and chatted while watching the golf.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAs my wife said at the conclusionAs my wife said at the conclusion of our meal - "the best filet I have ever had; cooked perfectly to my taste". A very inventive wine list on an interactive i-pad.
Flemings will always be on my destination list as I travel.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant Surprise - PortionsThis was our 1st experience at Fleming's. We were pleasantly surprised by portion sizes. In fact, if we had known side dishes were so large, we would have ordered less. Entire party had the filet and lobster tail listed only on their website. This came with choice of French Onion soup (best I have ever had) or wedge salad -- both again very generous in size. Wine list was impressive and I enjoyed the interactive tablet for choosing and exploring. A great experience -- we will return.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster at Fleming'sFleming's had a great Easter menu that included both the traditional beef-based items and special brunch options. We all ordered differently and each of the plates was beautiful and delicious. Fun to have the entire wine list on the iPad. Nice touch. Our only issue was seating location. We were at a table directly behind the open kitchen -- fun to watch but extremely loud and made conversation difficult, particularly with senior adults in the mix. Overall, however, it was a great choice for Easter and we'd do it again.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I had a late EasterMy wife and I had a late Easter dinner at Fleming's. The only menu item not available was the Prime Rib special. Our server said they had served over 300 during people during the day so to be out of only one item is pretty remarkable. We both had filet mignon was prepared exactly as we asked. We also had the creamed corn and Fleming's potatoes both excellent. We both enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEverybody already knows thisEverybody already knows this but the prices are pretty high. I guess they have to pay for their iPad "Wine Pads" one way or another... Food and service was GREAT! I'd call it a special occasion choice,3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMHard to beat!Had the most wonderful time at Flemings for my birthday. They are exactly what a fine dining steakhouse should be and I will have no problem recommending. Loved the wine list on the IPAD and our server was nothing short of exceptional. Keep it up!! I WILL be back :) OH YEA and my girlfriend off hand told them it was my birthday, Flemings had no problem sending me off with some truffles and a gift card for next time. Worth every penny.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMbirthday dinnerdrove from cincy to the restaurant. flemings was in a vibrant part of town. love the complementary valet parking. i tried their own "f17" sauce with my filet mignon, tasted a bit bbq-ie for me. we had a booth, wine glasses already on the table. my kind of style. skipped salad to really enjoy cocktails, lol. LOVE that they have the wine ipad and serve desert wines, made sure my glass was empty. mignon was tender, still had leftovers for a petite size. of course my husband plate was clean he had the suicide mashed potatoes, filet with cream sauce & asparagus, loved it. a bit noisy but it was saturday night. all service was prompt, ended the night with coffee & tea. will go back for christmas dinner but not on a regular basis3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Fleming's staff were veryThe Fleming's staff were very accommodating and made our special occasion dinner extra special. It was out anniversary, and right from the get-go, they wished us a happy anniversary, making it feel extra special. Thy gave us complimentary truffles and a gift card to commemorate our visit. That was very nice, and this gesture left a lasting impression on us. Thank you, Dayton Fleming's.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHigh end steakhouse experienceConveniently located at The Greene in Dayton, this classic steakhouse offers typical fare at a top shelf price. Cold salad forks and very hot steak plates will give you the extremes of temperature when food is served. A la carte sides are all very good.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSteaks are perfection. ImpressiveSteaks are perfection. Impressive wine list. Excellent service.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMStill great but a slight disappointMy Fourth trip this year. See my previous reviews for details. This trip had one disappointment because I did not get a thick bone-in ribeye. 2 of 3 steaks were perfect. My ribeye was a thinner bigger cut which was not the best prepared medium well (my request). This steak was not there usual and the manager had a lame excuse as to how some were just like that and that I should be specific about ordering and getting a thick cut the next time.
Given that I had the same experience at two other high end steak places last month I will give them the benefit of a doubt. I think the definitice description of a "Cowboy Ribeye" is changing with the availability of the cut from the suppliers.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNot much of a selection foNot much of a selection fo entrees. Menu has shortened with less variety.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLooking for an ExcuseA little disappointed at how pricey everything was. Side salads
started at $8.50 and of course everything was a la carte.
However, the food,wine,ambiance and service were all excellent.
We will save the place for special occasions, but I am
already looking for an occasion/excuse to go back.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
