    Our dinner was fabulous. The filet was cooked perfectly - medium rare as requested. Everything from appetizer to salad to our main dishes- Filet & salmon to sweets at the end were fantastic. Well prepared, very nice combinations of ingredients and most importantly- everything tasted great.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 11/22/2014
    Flemings is an outstanding restaurant with exceptional waitstaff. The filet mignon I ordered was cooked exactly how I ordered it. I got Mac n cheese, peppercorn-Parmesan mashed potatoes, and asparagus for sides and they were delicious! Our waiter was named Zak and he was very knowledgeable of the menu. He was promt, courteous, and made sure every request we had was met. He is charismatic and light-hearted which made our meal more enjoyable because we did not feel intimidated when asking questions. I recommend that everyone come to this restaurant at least once (but chances are you'll be back for a 2nd, 3rd.. time) and hopefully you get the pleasure of having Zak as you're server! You will not be disappointed with any item off the menu!

    My husband and I went for a celebratory dinner. The food and service were excellent until.....11 pm at home and we were both still wide awake. We had asked for decaf coffee with dessert and it had to have been caffeinated- we were both up all night! It didn't ruin the wonderful experience we had but I sure was tired at work the next day!!

    Food was amazing, wine list was very sophisticated and the service was unbeatable! Our server Tony was very attentive and the bussing staff was very engaged. It is a little pricey so we will keep this gem as our "special occassion" place and i would definitely bring my out of town clients here. I was born and raised in Napa Valley and just moved here 2 months ago and one thing I was worried about the most was if CT would be able to live up to anything close to the restaurants in Napa....so bravo Flemings!!! It felt like home!!

    My husband and I went to Flemings to celebrate both of our birthdays. To say that the food was amazing would be an understatement. This is by far one of the top 5 steaks either of us have ever had. I had a filet mignon and ate all 11 oz of it! My husband got the bone in rib eye and he enjoyed every last bite. The mashed potatoes were simply "to die for" although I would have loved a bigger portion! The service was great as well.

    Dined on 11/1/2014
    I have been to many high end steakhouses and this was ok in comparison. I did later find out it was a chain. Not saying it was bad by any means, but when looking at overall value, I think there are much better places to go for the money. I got the aged NY Strip which was cooked to perfection (Medium Rare); however, I did notice butter was used. This would suggest they are using USDA prime, which is not the creme de la creme. The meat was not grass fed or organic. I was rather disappointed with the quality of the sides. Overall the service was top notch and the food was above the average steakhouse.

    I called a few days before to make sure our reservation was there. It was. I then got an e- mail confirmation from Open Table. We arrived at Flemings to be told we did not have a reservation. It took them at least 10 minutes to get it settled even after I showed them the e- mail. They brought out the menus and an I pad. The I pad had their list of wines that they were discontinuing. After looking at that list and the wine menu, we ordered a bottle from the being discontinued list only to find out they did not have it. Then ordered a bottle from the regular menu only to find out that they were out of that too. The waiter suggested another bottle which, of course, was $25 more than the others. Very annoying. We will not be returning.

    Most everything was just good about Fleming's; I was surprised that it was not excellent. First, I could barely see the menu due to the rather dark lighting, the salads we chose were fine, our entrees were cooked perfectly (swordfish and filet), but the their signature potatoes were very greasy. And, desserts were the best course of all (creme brulee and chocolate/walnut something-or-other pie).

    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.
