    My wife and I celebrated my birthday recently at Flemings and had a marvelous time. Our server Chad was very attentive and explained the menu and specials expertly. Our steaks were first class and prepared to perfection. We also the the chocolate lava cake which was awesome and not to be missed. I received a nice birthday card, chocolates and a nice visit from the manager. A first class Restuarant with impeccable service that's not to be missed.

    This was our first time dining at Fleming's Steakhouse and we absolutely LOVED it! We wanted to dine somewhere different to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary. Upon arrival, our server asked us if we were celebrating anything special. We told him that it was our anniversary and he even gave us a little gift before we left. The food was divine and the service was fabulous. What more could you ask for?

    I had put a message on my OpenTable app indicating that it was our first anniversary and that I wanted a romantic table. They not only gave us a nice table but everyone wished us a happy 1st anniversary who came in contact with us. They also had a card with everyone's signature, a box of Chocolate for my girlfriend, and a $25 gift certificate as well. It was wonderful and the food and service were perfect.

    We first tried Fleming's for my husband's birthday. Just incredibly high quality. We've been back multiple times and each time has been wonderful. The steaks are obviously amazing but the small plates are fabulous as well. Order the Fleming's potatoes....I'm still trying to replicate them at home!

    Food was decent, for the amount of money you'd spend for it, but nothing amazing. We're talking $50+ steaks (cooked to perfection certainly), but totalling $300 for two people, only including a couple of apps, sides and drinks. Service was very apathetic. No real interest in making personal recommendations. Not even any specials offered for the evening. Would NOT recommend, only because it's way too much money for lukewarm service and "okay" food.

    Our waitress was very good at describing the Chef's specials and we were delighted with the mixed grill of shrimp, steak and lamb chops. We also chose the chef's special dessert...pumpkin cheesecake which was delicious. We had a great dining experience but this is definitely a special occasion restaurant as it was quite expensive

    We dine at the restaurant frequently. Food is always good, servers excellent, and decor is great. Parking continues to be problem and price is high for a West Hartford, CT restaurant. We can dine at a similar restaurant in NYC at prices equal to or lower than Flemings for a better overall experience.

    We go to Fleming's every year for our anniversary. This year was was pretty good, my only complaints being that they've raised their prices a bit, as well as having had some issues with getting bread that was cold on the inside, twice. The steaks were excellent, as usual, so at least they haven't lost their touch with that.

    We went to Flemmings for our two year anniversary the service was phenomenal and the food was the best we ever had! We ate every last fork full of everything we ordered because it was just too good to resist!! The service exceeded expectations and after the waitress found out it was our anniversary we even received a card and a gift. Would recommend this place over and over again especially for a romantic dinner. Thank You Flemmings

    Was a little disappointed with the food. The taste of the steak was off and the portions seemed small compared to the meal we had last week in Providence, RI location. I sort of expect Providence to be better since it is conveniently located next to Ruth Chris and Capital Grille within walking distance, but a variation this drastic was not expected...this place needs to step it up.

    Our second time at this location. Staff was attentive and catered to our every need. We ordered the prime rib which was soft and flavorful. My Fleming potatoes were delicious and not overpowering with jalepeno. Wedge salads were fresh and clean. For dessert the Carrot cake is NOT loaded with cream cheese frosting. The cream cheese frosting compliments the carrot cake without excess. Although a bit pricey, there are always specials to make any occasion special. I would have given 4.5 stars if I could.

    My husband and I celebrated our 21st anniversary at Fleming's and had a wonderful evening. The staff knew it was our anniversary and presented us with a card and truffles for dessert which was very kind. The food was outstanding as always and the service was impeccable. Yes, it is pricey but you get what you pay for. For starters they give you a napkin color selection to ensure you do not get lint on your clothes, they think of everything. Steaks were perfectly cooked and of course we ordered Fleming's famous potatoes. Perfect night out.

  • Great Food but but bill surprise
    Ccallahan
    Dined on 8/8/2014
    Had a great meal at Flemings. Everything we had was prepared well, served hot, and timely. I was however surprised when the bill came and found that the wine suggested to me by the waiter doubled the price of wines I was looking at and discussing with him as options. I was looking at bottles of wine prices between 60-90 dollars per bottle, the waiter suggested a bottle not on the list and told me it was comparable to what I was looking at on e list. I took his suggestion and the wine was good. However, when the bill came the bottle was $150. More than I waned to spend. It was my fault to not question the price when it was suggested but the waiter knew my price range and didn't offer up the cost either.

    Flemings is rather expensive but the service, food and ambience is worth it! The wine list has something for everyone - it's varied in selection and cost! The manager came over, addressed us by name, to make sure we were enjoying our experience. Class act! When our server presented our check he had his own business card. I thought this was a great touch, especially when this restaraunt does a lot of business lunches and dinners! The only downside is finding parking. Parking spaces are limited around the restaraunt and parking isn't free! I highly recommend Flemings!

    This was the best steak I've had since last time I was in Kansas City! Iron-crusted prep is the way to go. Heirloom tomato salad was soggy but the Caesar was great. Desserts were delightful - simple but good. Recommend the Chocolate lava cake. Specialty drinks were so-so but the wine list was good. Excellent coffee - hot, fresh, and very tasty! A bit dark inside for my liking and rather noisy but we had a wonderful meal and the service was excellent. Will definitely be back.

    The look of the restaurant is very nice but it pretty much stops there. The food was average at best, we had the filet and salmon and the portions were a joke for the price. Our appetizer was bigger than our entree. The salmon was dry and the steak didn't taste anything like a filet should. We ordered sides and they looked like kid portions. The real disaster was that my wife and I were seated next to a group of drunks that were loud and obnoxious. Not really the atmosphere you want for a quiet dinner for two. This is not the place to go for a quiet dinner for two if you want quiet and good food. If you want the noisy bar crowd, don't care what your eating, and lost of disposable income, this is your place. I'm not going back.

    Right from the friendly greeting at the door, to being seated immediately and introduced to our server Michael B. we were well looked after. Michael answered our questions and guided our choices in a very helpful manner. Our drinks and food were served quickly, hot and delicious. All five in our party were more than satisfied. The bonus of two boxes of truffles and a card signed by the staff topped off our birthday celebration (2 of us)with a surprise. We were also presented a gift card and will return soon to use them. One of my guests left a camera behind and there was a message on my phone when I returned home to let us know. Thanks to the staff for a delightful dinner.

We shared the New Orleans BBQ shrimp and the Ahi tuna - the portions for appetizers were quite large and we could have shared 1. Steaks were perfect as were the sides. Nice touch to give us a box of truffles and a gift card to get is back in there! Thanks Flemings.
