    I was extremely disappointed with the make-shift table my party of 12 was given. Two round table pushed up to a small square table where the 2 people sitting at the square small table had their backs to the rest of the people sitting at the two square tables. When asked for a new table I was told that there was no other way to accommodate my party of 12. Very poor planning on the part of the restaurant. THE STEAKS - what a disappointment. You would think a bone in Rib Eye would have some flavor. Steaks were overcooked and without FLAVOR. The salads and side dishes were good.

    This was our first time visiting Fleming's Steakhouse. The Filet is by far one of the best I have tasted! The Martini's (Blueberry Lemon Drop) was delicious! Creme Brulee was outstanding. The service is excellent! The Manager, Krystal, greeted us at the beginning , and when she learned it was our first visit, she surprised us with a box of chocolates as a take home gift! What a nice surprise and very hospitable. We will definitely be returning. Thank you Fleming's!

The manager even surprised us with some chocolate truffles at the end of our meal as a birthday present to him! :)

    I have been going to Flemmigns for years... ( BOSTON and PHOENIX ) This was by far the lesser of the experiences with this chain. Decor was familiar... service was good. However the food was below expectations 1) Asprargus was served burnt and overcooked. The second batch was cooked well... but quality of the asparagus was not good. it was stringy and hard to cut and eat. 2) Special seafood chowder was unimpressive. Tasted like PROGRESSO in a can. 3) Flemmings special potatoes were undercooked and not seasoned well. Was also served luke warm 4) Bar Potato chips... we got the bottom of the bucket... greasy, small pieces that were overcooked. 5) Steak was NOT exceptional for $45 a pop. Small and unimpressive. Ribeye :(

    It was our first time at Flemings. The sweet chile calamari was excellent. As for the steak, we ordered a prime New York strip as our server suggested it. To his credit, he was correct. The NY strip was cooked perfectly and the wine he suggested was excellent too.

Mike was our server and he is so nice told us about the food and just a super guy, all your staff our first class.

    Our food was excellent as well as our service. I chose Fleming's because I was in the mood for dry aged beef. My ribeye was prepared perfectly and I was not disappointed. My wife opted for the Halibut which she was very pleased with. The other stand out dish from our visit was the Lava Cake with homemade ice cream. We both thought it was the best we'd ever had. All-in-all a great experience.

    We have always been a fan of Fleming's...but this last time must have been an off night. The service was poor, the server was less than attentive. Our past experience has always been prompt attentive service, our server had his hands in his pockets and walked by our table without checking in on us.

    Me and the wife sat down and on our table was a "Happy Anniversary" card. Later we were greeted by the manager who brought us over some complimentary champagne to celebrate our special occasion. Me and wife ordered the seafood platter for our appetizers which was great, nice, light and refreshing. I ordered the Dry Aged Ribeye (medium) and my wife ordered the special of bacon wrapped filet (also medium) and shrimp on top of mash potatoes. When the food arrived, we naturally dug in and made sure the food was to our liking. My steak had a nice char on the outside and was perfect medium on the inside. My wife's steak and bacon were underdone and being pregnant had to send it back. They took it off the bill and apologized.

    The dry aged ribeye was one of the best i've ever had. The flavor was a step above most steakhouse dry aged steaks. Mortons and eddie v's are too level but this one was extra juicy and and perfect, medium rare ofcourse.

    We were disappointed in the quality of the food. It was the last day of restaurant week. We had eaten at a Flemings in Providence, Rhode Island that was outstanding. We have also eaten at different restaurants during Restaurants week to try their cuisine. This restaurant is definitely one we won't return to.

    I've been dining at this Fleming's for years...I rave about it when WE go for EVERY birthday, anniversary and special occasion; always treated like royalty by staff and management. STOP - went to the Gaslamp for a concert alone and HAD to go there. I ordered wine, an appetizer and indicated I wanted to save room for dessert! I'm just ONE female and can't eat a full meal with wine, bread, salad, steak, sides and dessert..ugh! I was quite surprised at my experience. Service was clearly different to one female diner...and a manager greeted the table next to me, but never said a word to me! :(

    We took my in-laws here & had a bad experience with our steaks. We all got the $45 filet & lobster special (plus appetizers, sides, dessert & cocktails). There was gristle in 2 of 4 filets that was impossible to cut thru & 3 of 4 steaks were WAY undercooked - 1 so badly that after sending it back, it was still undercooked & my MIL just gave up & only ate the lobster. We were told they were busy, but when you come to a nice place, you expect quality regardless. The server (Pete) was amazing. The Manager (Lindsey) was nice to take $100 off our $377 bill. We did really appreciate that, but would have much rather had a great experience for our in-laws. We'll be back as we live downtown, but I certainly hope quality is not slipping here.

    Maybe it's because Ruth's Chris of Del Mar spoiled us with their excellent service, but, going to Fleming's was like a shock to us. First of all, their Valet.. as I was getting my son out of the car, the valet started driving off. I had to yell "stop" 3x and hit the car repeatedly to get the driver's attention. He was apologetic and we still tipped him. Then, our server. OMG. He was not very attentive, but his support staff, like the guy who refills our water, was better than him. I wish the tip would only go to the busboy. Our server didn't come back to the table that often, he didn't really listen to what I wanted to order. Service was slow. We waited 20 mins for our food. Server was a slacker.

    The dining experience is great once it happens. The food is delicious and if you like smaller plates, it is one of the many options at Flemings. My only complaint is the pre-dining experience. Although, we had set reservations 2 weeks in advance, when we arrived we still had to wait at least 15 minutes before we were seated. There was no place to sit and wait. We had a party of four and only one of us were able to sit down against the wall in the bar. Although, the bar staff was friendly, we were definitely in the way. It is a very crowded place. We were thankful to finally be seated. Once seated, service and dinner were wonderful, and it was like we were in a completely different place.

    The four of us arrived with reservations at 7:00 PM and we were greeted warmly and were seated immediately. Our waiter and his staff were attentive, knew the menu, assisted us with the wine list and were generous but not intrusive with their attentions. Our steaks and lamb chops were perfectly prepared. The side dishes were also well prepared with quality ingredients. We know this because the food was flavorful and easily digestible. We had an excellent dining experience.

    I have been dining here for several years & have always been pleased with the food, service, & atmosphere. On this visit I was a bit perplexed by the happy hour scene. Why would such an upscale restaurant allow the happy hour crowd to take over filling the bar leaving no room for diners to enjoy a cocktail before/after their meal? The bartenders & bussers were working overtime to tend to the needs of $6 a plate customers, some which I viewed really took advantage of the situation. I'm sure this deferred from the normal excellent care of restaurant patrons & brought in no extra revenue. Does Donovan's, Ruth Chris or Morton's have such a 'bar" atmosphere?

    We wanted a nice restaurant to celebrate anniversary and was not disappointed with our choice. I ordered the Modern Cesar Salad, very good, but my husband ordered the French onion soup. Wow was the broth was to die for. Very beefy anf flavorful. I would highly recommend this soup. My husband had the chicken ( yes I know, in a steakhouse) and I ordered the short ribs. Both dishes were excellent. I am allergic to spinach and Sam, our waiter gladly changed my vegetable to asparagus. We shared a piece of the carrot cake for dessert. Wow, again, I would highly recommend this for your dessert selection. The cake is very moist and the cream cheese frosting is so yummy. Do yourself a favor and try Flemming's. We will definitely be back.
