    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.

    We were celebrating our birthdays and seated near the door and next to a very loud and obnoxious table of 8. Service was better our first visit over Valentine's Day. Minimal service this time with different people for each entrée. We never were able to order more wine with dinner. Food was good, but not outstanding. Lettuce in the wedge salad was old, bacon chewy. Lobster was a bit over-done and steak had good flavors, but had better at other steak houses.

    Went to Fleming's to celebrate my birthday and was welcomed and wished a happy birthday from hostess. We were shown to our table right away. A birthday card was on table for me. The waiter came and also wished me a happy birthday. We had been to this restaurant before and it did not disappoint. The food was super good. My husband and I ordered surf and turf and our son had the most amazing ribeye steak. Ours was amazingly good too. Finished off our meal with sharing a chocolate lava cake. OMG....excellent! Then our waiter brought me a box of chocolates with a $25 gift card to be used on another visit. We left very full but happy😊 that we had gone there to celebrate.

    I love the addition of the small plates! The lollipop lamb chops were EXCELLENT! They are tasty and the items are different then the rest of the menu so can be served as appetizer or a light plate for us girls. They still leave room for all the amazing appetizers. I think the Mac and cheese is great, but could get a bit more adventurous. Just an idea. Creamed spinach is a classic and the creamed corn can be matched. The bartenders are great and really care about their guests.i ordered a drink she had never made before and she checked back several times to make sure she got it right! And she did!

    We were celebrating our anniversary, plus our daughters graduation from law school. Flemings,went above and beyond. Card for our anniversary, champagne, two boxes of their home made truffles, along with two $25 gift cards upon departure. Amazing! We all three had the non advertised special. 8 oz filet mig in and 8 oz lobster tail. You choose between their French onion soup, which was to die for, or the wedge salad, which was the best I ever had. We ordered their home made wedge cut fries, which was an excellent choice. Our server, Rafi, incredible service. ! Not too much hovering, just right. Our evening could not have been more perfect. Just delightful! Thank you to everyone at Flemings!

    I can't really say that anything was bad, but nothing was really good either. Even at a lower price point, it would not have been a memorable steak dinner. For $40 and up I wanted that steak to wow me. It was good, but not great The Sunday night prime rib special is a good value, but the 3 "special" sauces that came with it were not very good, and I do like my horseradish sour cream dip. When the waitress forgot our drinks, they did the right thing and comped them, but again, not a memorable meal.

    Was in San Diego for Labor Day weekend and dined at Fleming's Sunday night to take advantage of their $29.95 Prime Rib dinner special. AMAZING deal. Generous cut of Prime Rib, it comes with choice of one of their tremendous salads (go for the Wedge... outstanding) or French Onion soup (best around), a side dish per person as well as a dessert per person (split the delicious Lava Cake and take home a slice of cheesecake for the next morning). We brought in our own bottle of wine and were not charged a corkage fee. Sam, our waiter, was fantastic. We often go to Fleming's in Newport Beach. This was our first visit to the San Diego location. Not quite as upscale as the NB location but very nice just the same.
