    Spent a great evening with friends at Fleming Steakhouse. The food was outstanding along with the service that was given to our table. I would recommend this restaurant for any occasion. Thanks again, to the staff at Flemings.

    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.

    We go to Fleming's for all our special occasions, Birthday's and Anniversary every year and the special treatment is fabulous! Their welcoming staff served us two glasses of Champagne with an Anniversary card; the steaks are THE best and of course, the Chocolate Lava Cake is to die for! Afterwards, a box of truffles and a $25 gift certificate for our next visit, accompanied our bill! Who does that?? Fleming's never disappoints! Staff is very attentive, food is fantastic - worth the $

    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!

    We arrived to find a card on the table for my mothers birthday. Shortly after we were greeted with champagne. The service from Maria was outstanding. Everything from start to finish was wonderful. My mother's birthday is a blessing to us and to have the people at Flemings truly make her feel like a queen made my day. Great steak, wonderful wine, great desserts and outstanding service! Can't ask for more. Thank you Flemings and Maria.

We ate everything on our plates because the food was incredible. It was one of the best dinners we have ever had. We will definitely be coming back.

    Dined on 9/1/2014
    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.

    Came here on Labor day with my wife, sister and 7 year old son. We came for the prime rib special and it did not disappoint! From the start our server Rafi was great and very accommodating to my son and 8 month pregnant wife. Every part of the meal was spot on and I have not been able to stop talking about it to whoever will listen. We will be back soon as my wife went crazy for the roasted tomatoes butter

    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.

We came with friends to take advantage of the Labor Day special menu and enjoyed every course - excellent salad, perfect roast beef and delighful selection of deserts. Our waiter was Pete - he was great. We had good wine and nice Porchagese Port to end a wonderful evening.

    Service was good. We were given complimentary champagne and a card for our anniversary. We had french onion soup and I had the Fleming salad. Both were good but not exceptional. We each had filet mignon . Both were delicious! We had the green beans, also very good. The bread we had was served hot. However, the crust was so hard/tough it scratched the roof of my mouth. Our desserts were yummy. The manager came by with a gift box of truffles which when opened appeared to have been in the heat and melted and cooled. He also gave us a card for 25% off our next visit.

    We can walk to Flemings in 5-10 minutes. Flemings shows up in our Opentable history more and more frequently than any other restaurant. Two reasons. Many other places we only go for happy hour. Flemings we go dinner AND happy hours. Flemings does not feel like a chainstore even though it is a chain. Servers are personable and attentive. Food delivery is QUICK! So many places in San Diego are slow. Great happy hour! Both food quality and value. Great specials that bring us in beyond the menu. Many places in San Diego are good .. Flemings is memorable and a favorite.

    My wife and I celebrated our 28th Anniversary with an early dinner at Flemmings, we were greeted and seated immediately. This was our first time here and our waiter was extremely helpful. The customer service by our waiter and other staff members were an A plus. My wife had the petite filet which she enjoyed very much. I had the dry aged rib eye medium rare that was cooked to perfection. The steak was red, hot, tender and full of flavor, I was very impressed. You know you're having a great dining experience when you're planning to return while waiting for your desert. We are definitely coming back!

    Flemings always measures up! Though a bit pricey, the steaks are well worth the cost. There are menu choices for non-meat eaters (the barbecue salmon is my favorite) and smaller appetites (share one or two small plates and an appetizer or salad). The service is excellent and a manager roams the restaurant and visits each table to make sure everything is to your liking. This is one of our favorite spots.

    We had looked forward to this dinner for several weeks. We enjoy a good steak and good service. The service by our waiter was very good but it took an hour for our entree to arrive at the table. My wife's filet was cooked excellently. I ordered the bone in rib eye medium rare but it was definitely rare and not as tender as most choice steaks. At $10.50 for the french fries I would expect them to be hot and fresh and they were not. Our bill without the tip came to over $160.00. I would not eat at this restaurant again. We have found comparable meals and atmosphere for about half the price that Fleming's charges.

    The restaurant was nice but loud as the dining area was directly behind the bar and a football game was on. The soup was good but so hot that we had to wait to eat it. Our steaks were cooked to order regarding doneness but lacked flavor. The wait staff was wonderful and very attentive. The manager came around checking on everyone. Overall, a nice but pricey evening for the quality and flavor of our food.

    We dined the other night with two other couples. We all had the prime rib, which is unusual for that to happen with six people. The prime rib was excellent, it melted in your mouth and you could almost cut it with a fork. It was thick. The sides were equally as good, creamed spinach, asparagus, baked potato. Very filling. Then there was dessert, carrot cake, lava cake, very nice. The service was very good, attentive. The only drawback I would say it the cocktails. They are Not generous with the amount of liquor and their mixed drinks are made with cheaper liquor. Also the drinks are expensive, no value there. We came to eat and the food was very good. We drank earlier at one of our condos before hand and walked to the restaurant. Enjoy

    The food was outstanding. One of the best top 10 steaks I had the pleasure of being served. Ambience was good. Nothing particular stood out; white table cloths, Fleming's stamped silverware, wood trim throughout the restaurant. Most of the night service was handled by a single waitress or waiter. I like when all the food is placed on the table at the same time. It would have only taken two waiters/waitresses for our party of four. It's the difference between outstanding service and good. Interesting, the wine list was on an iPad. I favor a Sommelier. One last note, I preferred if the restaurant was a bit cooler, temperature wise. Overall a very good experience.

    We usually go to the Flemings in La Jolla but decided to try the one in the Gaslamp because we were going to a play at Lamb's, a block away. It was a wonderful experience providing the food quality and service that we have come to expect from Flemings. The only qualification I would mention is that we were dining early, so it was quiet, which we prefer to permit easy conversation. However, this is in the Gaslamp and I would expect that as the evening goes on, it gets noisy, as does everyplace else in the Gaslamp.
