  • Wonderful 20th Birthday for my son

    My husband and I took our son out to dinner for his 20th birthday. The food was absolutely delicious! We had steak and prime rib - both were wonderful. We had some great sides and the Lava cake for his birthday - what a way to celebrate! We're still talking about how good it was! Thank you.

    The food was very good, but over priced. We were initially seated in the back of the restaurant in a corner and we asked to be moved to a booth or table in the main restaurant. Although there were many open tables, they said nothing was available. We ended up eating outside, which was a much better option.

    SuperDNPVIP
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    I'll start with the positive. Service was great. The Caesar salad and the loaded potato were delicious. The steaks.....not so much. I ordered the petite filet which was dry and had not real taste. It was cooked perfectly (medium rare) but sadly had no flavor. I took 2 bites and gave the rest to my boyfriend. We also ordered sautéed mushrooms, most of which were charred so much they were inedible. The 4 or 5 that weren't charred were delicious. My boyfriend ordered the ribeye - also tasteless but not as dry. Overall a very disappointing experience from a restaurant which such a high rating on Open Table.

    We decided to take a mini-getaway for the weekend. Decided to go to Flemings as we've been to the one in IN before~ Our waitress (Teresa) was VERY friendly and even though we made menu changes, etc she never made us feel like it was a problem and/or was very accommodating. Another excellent rating would be for my Ribeye! I usually get the filet and it is very good too, but the Ribeye was the BEST I've ever eaten! Complaints; the creamed spinach was not creamy, nothing special; restaurant too loud (not sure what you can do about that) and the music was not appropriate. Jazz, rat pack, or just softer music would be much better. The new pop sound doesn't work for this type of crowd. Probably would go elsewhere next time due to these.

    The food was excellent, but very expensive. Although I don't mind paying more for a meal that is over the top, the service did not match the food. Greeting upon arrival was welcoming, and the woman that seated us was friendly but the woman at the reservation desk looked bored and uninterested. Service was slow and waitress talked way too much. We waiting forever for our bill. Not sure I would return.

    We had a lovely leisurely dinner for two, sharing an outstanding Caesar salad and a great bottle of wine. We were a little disappointed by the New York strip steaks; they were very good, but at that price there should be that "wow" reaction when you bite into it. I also always resent the a la carte sides--they are big enough to share (two of us couldn't finish the fries) but what if you don't want the same side dish as your dining companion? Leftover steak travels home well; leftover fries or spinach, not so much. At these prices, they should just include a small side.

    Everything from food to service was great... the only downside was the cost which was a bit out of line. $15 for a glass of wine for a brand that you can buy for $19 at the local liquor store. Other than cost, it was wonderful

    I took advantage of a 29.95 prime rib special, consisting of a fresh and nicely composed signature salad, a large, medium rare slab of well prepared prime rib, a large and delicious baked potato (a consistent winner at Flemings), and a superb warm chocolate lava dessert. The prime rib, served with several dipping sauces, was not as fich in beefy flavor as I might have hoped, but that is often true of prime rib compared to the best steaks. Service was excellent and friendly and not at all precious or pretentious (occasionally a problem here). All in all, a terrific meal for the price. When specials are not available, I find Flemings rather pricey for this community and given the very good, but not extraordinary quality of the food.

    We went for Father's Day. The food was alright, soup had been luke warm so had to get another, but for the price of the steaks they were just alright. Loved the fact that the kids menu had baked options and not fried. But our sever Theresa was amazing!!!

    Had a very enjoyable family dinner late one evening after our daughter's 8th grade graduation......though arriving late in the evening, we were never made to feel rushed throughout our dining experience. Service was efficient and very pleasant. Food was great. Waitress topped the evening off with a box of truffles for our graduate! Nice touch for our special occasion......

    I've eaten at this Fleming's several times. I like to introduce new folks to this restaurant because it is so CONSISTENTLY great. It's okay to just order a "small plate" and maybe a salad and be happy with the price and the smaller portion. I love that option, and so do my women friends. If you are with someone who wants a great steak or who is definitely a wine connoisseur, this will definitely impress them! Most of all, I never feel rushed or treated as if I didn't " spend enough." I will continue to frequent this Fleming's, not just for the wonderful food, but for the attention given by all the wait staff and manager!

    Three of us enjoyed our dinners in a pleasant booth near a window and far enough from the bar for audible conversation -- all as requested and appreciated. Beef selections and some sides very good...but the $9.95 baked potato...even with the trimmings...is flat out over-priced. Mediocre Caesar salad. Delicious French onion soup, Fleming's house salad and the best ever lava cake. Prime rib and steak perfectly prepared. Would be nice to have a bit more daylight on early spring & summer evenings.

    We returned to Fleming's for another delightful experience while celebrating my wife's birthday. The service was first class. Our food was outstanding, just as it has been on prior times there. The wine list, though a little overpriced, is extensive. The iPad use enhanced the ability to find a great bottle that paired well and was quite delicious. The portions are large, the steaks cooked to perfection. We skipped any appetizers or desserts and left quite sated.

  • Onion allergy was handled poorly
    Calli
    Dined on 10/15/2013
    Everything tasted great and my husband ordered the same thing as he had on our last visit (the tenderloin special). My husband has an onion allergy and was told that the stuffed shrimp was fine (no onion). Yet on our last visit they had to prepare it separately for him, so we suspect this was the cause of his onion exposure this time. He suffered that evening and all of the next day thus our server, Holly, must not have gotten the right answer from the chef. He was careful to avoid the bread, as we were told that had onion in it. This will indeed make us more cautious on our next visit. As this was in celebration of my husband's birthday, it forced us to cancel a family birthday celebration the following day. :(

    Can't say I was disappointed or wowed by Flemings. Just very average to slightly below for an upscale steak house. Service was very good as expected; but place was almost empty at 730 on a Wednesday. Steaks were ok - I've enjoyed significantly better food at comparable chains like Capitol Grille, Ruth's, Mortons, etc. and at similar prices. For the $ I'd go elsewhere.
