  • The food was obscenely expensive.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 11/22/2014
    For $50, the steak was tiny and looked unappetizing on a huge, otherwise empty plate. This is a la carte to a ridiculous extreme. Anthony, our server had attitude. He didn't like answering questions that he felt were unreasonable for example, "is the coffee medium or dark roast"? He answered that it was medium and it was dark. My salmon was over cooked and cold by the time he returned to give me freshly ground black pepper. I WOULD NEVER RETURN AND WILL MAKE IT A POINT TO TELL EVERYONE IN MY SOCIAL CIRCLE TO AVOID FLEMMINGS.

    This was our 7th time celebrating our anniversary dinner with Sarasota Fleming's. It was a great night! The table was set with rose petals and a personalized card signed by the entire staff. Everyone came by and wished us a happy anniversary. The food was great and they ended with a lighted dessert and a box of truffles. We could not be more pleased with my dinner. Just like my beautiful wife Fleming's get's better every year!

    Dined on 10/30/2014
    We have dined at this Fleming's several times, however, each time our experience is less than the best. The "Happy Hour" is better described as "Unhappy Hour". Insufficient space in the bar, usually very crowded and management will not permit a glass of happy hour wine beyond the bar area. Our last visit was the most disappointing as the service was poor, there was a hassle over the wine and they gave me the wrong take home bag....I found someone's left over prime rib when I arrived home instead of my cheesecake. I left a message for the manager Dean to call, however, no response from him. As an alternative, I would suggest exploring the new restaurants at the University Town Center, Sarasota for more exciting options.

    They made everything absolutely perfect... I could not have asked for a better birthday dinner for my partner. Everyone and everything was beautifully executed... from the rose on the table to the drinks and service to the wonderful meal. We have always loved Flemings and we tried to get there as least 3 to 4 times a year... and we always feel like it is our first time when the red carpet is rolled out for us each and every time. Wonderful place to celebrate and to share with family and friends. Five stars ***** without a doubt!

    Wait staff slow to greet (10 mins). Asked for dry martini but had too much vermouth. I ordered bone in rib-eye - surprised when it arrived that it was <1/2 inch thick and had some gravy like substance on top...way too fatty and very tough...akin to supermarket piece of meet (Publix is much better) but not a $51 steak....I lived in NY and also live in Boston so know good steaks from all the great steak houses...this was way off...mashed potatoes had been sitting around for a while and were too firm....wine (listed as a Duckhorn Pinot) was way too light...didn't taste like the last duckhorn I had....desert coffee arrived cold....waitress was very pleasant but seemingly distracted by too many tables to attend to....

    The service was good, the wine list was large, the iPad for wine selection was a nice touch, the manager was pleasant and generous and the place was obviously popular. The food is quite pricey. Some specials are only made known through the website or to members of their enewsletter club. The noise level was much higher than I had expected, especially in a restaurant which sells $50 steaks (not including sides).

    We went to Flemings for the first time for my boyfriend's birthday & were wowed from the moment we sat down until the moment we left. Our server Barb was incredibly knowledgeable, attentive, and friendly, surpassing the expectations of "good service". Our meal, which consisted of calamari, a wedge salad, an aged ribeye, petite fillet mignon and crab cake, Fleming's potatoes, and a chocolate lava cake was exquisite, with everything being cooked perfectly. Their wine list was expansive, with bottles of wine for every price range. We can't wait to find another reason to go back!

    I took my parents here on the occasion of their 66th wedding anniversary and my dad's 91st birthday. My sister and our Aunt joined us. Last time we were there, we had some issues with service, but not this time! The steaks were delicious, side dishes superb and dessert- well, just to die for! Their wine list is presented on an ipad which is fun and you can explore the list in several different ways. Our waiter was kind enough to let us a taste a couple before we decided. Thank you Flemings for making this special occasion so memorable!

    We decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary at Fleming's. It was a good decision. When we arrived, our table was waiting for us covered with red rose petals and with a "Happy Anniversary" card. The dinner was delicious (filet mignon). The wait staff was knowledgeable, attentive, and responsive. As we left, they gave us a box of chocolates. In all, it was a romantic and joyful experience.

    My husband and had a wonderful experience at Flemings. The steaks were some of the best we've ever had. Our waiter, David, was wonderful. He knew the menu well, offered suggestions, very attentive. I was some what surprised to see the way some people were dressed,ie flip-flops and shorts. I think maybe a restaurant of this caliber should have a dress code, more like our Yacht Club. We'll definitely go back and take friends and recommend Flemings to everyone.

    The food is always perfect ! From the bread, salads, main dish -- always served at your pace for the meal. The servers are very knowledgeable about the food choices and make suggestions. The service is impeccable -- they offer you a white or black napkin depending on your color pants or dress. You are greeted upon entering the restaurant and thanked when leaving your dining experience. The personal care is amazing !

    This was our first visit to Fleming's. It was Mother's Day & the restaurant was very busy & loud. My filet was very very tender & cooked perfect. The service could of been better. Our waiter took away the salad forks, telling us he was going to replace them with chilled forks. The salad was served & we did not have any forks. It was a little while until a waiter came by for us to let him know we didn't have any forks. A nice touch to serve chilled forks with salad when you receive them. There were four in our party & everyone was pleased with their dinner choices. The restaurant is pricey as everything is al a carte.
