    This spot has great steaks and succulent lobster tails. Service is also very good. Expensive, but worth it, especially if you are celebrating an occasion.

    We went there for dinner on a Sunday night and ordered their prime rib special. The bread with two different spreads was delicious. The dinner included a choice of salad, a very generous prime rib cut with your choice of a side, and then any dessert on the menu. The food and service were excellent. Sadly, this special ends Sept. 1st or we would be back.

    Best deal in town! Eight of us enjoyed the Sunday night prime rib at a value of 29.99. Salads, prime rib, huge side of choice and choice of dessert. The meal and service was excellent. This is by far the best bargain in town for the quality one receives.

    This is such an exceptional restaurant. The service, friendliest servers. Your water glass and coffee are always kept filled. The manager made sure he came to us and asked how we liked everything. You can be assured you'll have top service here. We had the Prime Rib special and it was superb! There were plenty of leftovers. We'll return for sure.

    The waitress brought our martinis and then told us we were being offered a free sample of the lobster bisque. Ten minutes later, our water glasses were filled but still not bread to the table. We then ordered salads and I realized there was no cutlery or napkins so I had to ask for them. My wife's salad was bland and she asked for more dressing, while I took a bite of my caesar only to find that they completely forgot the dressing. Waitress returned to take order but still no bisque. My medium filet came cooked well and charred crunchy on edges and my wifes came as petrified wood.....really inedible so she didn't eat! The bisque arrived with our meals....classy. Nobody asked why we didn't eat but they wanted to push us for dessert.

    I like Flemings very much but this is the second time they have taken 1 week to post 1000 Open Table Points. Not acceptable. Every other Open Table restaurant posts points immediately. There are steakhouses I enjoy as much as Fleming's and they are more honorable about posting Open Table Points. This policy of theirs has cost them a good customer. My average dinner check has been $100 pp.

    Fleming's LaJolla is a dependable top level steak house experience clustered in a sterile location across the parking lot from the Hyatt. Great target for the traveler. Top notch dishes, no real surprises or deviations from what you'd expect in a good steak house. Two dings: Wine list is 4X markup, based on the dozen or so bottles I frequently buy, so outrageous. Last visit I took a small group there for a celebration and the service was VERY rushed; cocktails to check in under an hour; defeated the purpose of going there.

    My first time dining at Flemings and what a pleasant surprise. My server Brianne was so helpful in helping me select just the right size steak. It was a filet mignon (generally not a fan) but this 6 oz filet was melt-in-my-mouth delicious. It was done perfectly. I was surprised to learn that Flemings is a corporate restaurant. This corporation surely knows how to choose good managers. This restaurant was outstanding on every level.

    Love the small meals for ladies with light appetites but with great flavor and interesting options! While they have a complete Steak and Seafood selectin for all those with much larger appetites or those wanting that certain cut of steak they so love. Took friends there for dinner - wife loved the small meals and so did I. Both our husbands enjoyed the selection of steaks - perfect for everyone!

    I was surprised that the server knew I booked on open table and said the chef will send out a complimentary amuse busche !! Service and Food was flawless. Only negative was the $8 charge for valet parking when I am paying over $100 per person for a meal, I think they should at least validate and comp the valet charge !! But that would not deter me from going back to this location.

    We went for a birthday dinner for my husband for the first time. I had asked for a nice table and they seated us right by the door - it was a horrible table. I was pretty disappointed, but after complaining, they moved us to a nice booth. I wish they just had sat us at a nice table in the the first place. Our waitress was nice and very, very knowledgeable. The dinner and the wine were delicious, but it was so expensive! A family of 4 with $100 bottle of wine ran about to $600 before tip.

Every aspect of the experience was top notch. And, a special favor was provided to us since we made our reservation through Open Table. Everything was perfect. Strongly recommend this restaurant, one of the best steak houses we've been to.

  • The Best Flemings is La Jolla CA
    VIP1000dinesVIP
    Dined on 2/22/2014
    We dine at Newport Beach Flemings all the time and La Jolla is easily 2 notches above that one. La Jolla location has service and quality equal Capital Grille & Mastro's. While dining at the La Jolla location, we ordered the marvelous tomahawk steak, beet salad and potatoes. Steak was cooked medium and medium rare at the same time. Salad and potatoes were perfectly prepared. Chris our waiter was just top notch. He did not pour our bottle of wine in 2 pours, rather poured it over the course of the evening. He showed real professionalism as did all the other staff members who were friendly and thoughtful. I can honestly say that this Flemings location is the way all the other locations used to be, Excellent Steaks and Staff.

    I had not been to Fleming's for a few years. I used to really like it and thought I would head back with my girlfriend on our anniversary. For this joyous occasion they stuck us in a table right next to the kitchen. It was extremely loud and busy in that area. Whatever, we ignored that part of it. But the problem is as we were ignoring the loud terrible seating, our server was ignoring us. We had terrible service. Took forever to get drinks, take orders, etc. The server did not have any clue as to pairing combinations of drinks with the meals. And when the food finally arrived it was of course lukewarm and not properly cooked. Unfortunately by that time I had no desire to see how long it would take a for a new steak so I just ate it.

    With a Valentine's Day Wedding Anniversary,we have been to many fine restaurants in the past 43 years ....and some not so nice. Without question, Fleming's was THE BEST! From the greeting at the front desk it was all 5 star!! Complimentary champagne and a delicious chocolate lava cake to end the evening with the finest filet mignon we have ever eaten in between...wow! Our server, Stephanie, was right there when she should have been without hovering. We are already planning our return for my wife's birthday in April.

    We have been to Flemings in the past for business dinners. This time we enjoyed a pre-Valentine's Day dinner and it was truly superb! We shared a Tomahawk Ribeye for two, lobster mash potatoes, and the special chocolate lava cake and of course some great red wine. Service was wonderful and since it was not actually Valentine's Day it was completely crazy there. A great evening, great meal and great company!

    A Birthday dinner turned into a very enjoyable and celebratory experience with wonderful service, excellent food and attentive management. The atmosphere was both elegant and vibrant - a full fine dining restaurant tells you they must be doing something right. The seafood tower was excellent, the filet and rib eye perfect, the creme brûlée and the box of truffles gift was the perfect way to end a happy Birthday dinner.

The restaurant provided an "amuse bouche" lobster bisque starter served in a shot glass because we used open table for the reservation. A manager checked our table to confirm that our evening was complete successful and enjoyable. It was.

    I made our reservations on OpenTable for our best friends and ours anniversaries. When we got there, they opened the bar a few minutes early for us and were able to help me find a wine to my liking (I tasted 3 or 4 wines). Then we got to our table and our menus had inserts wishing us all Happy Anniversary. We got complimentary champagne, soup tasters, and a truffle surprise at the end. The service was phenomenal and the food was, as it always is, way better than I can describe--our steaks were perfect and the lobster mac/mashed potatoes were to die for! The soups were super delicious, and there was a never a moment spent waiting for our server, or drink refills. I have always loved Flemings and this experience added more icing to the cake!
