Food and service were good. Waiter knowledgable on the wine list. It was really loud this night so casual conversation at our table was difficult but overall it was a great meal.

Great food and Service
We eat at Flemings often and have never been disappointed. This time was no different. Food and service was great. Will be back there soon.

A great night out
Great food, outstanding service, beautiful atmosphere. Since this was a spring visit the restaurant had many prom couples out for a special evening. We enjoyed seeing the young people in their finery and "grown up" manners. They provided a different level of energy to the restaurant. My meal, a steak and lobster combo was great. I opted for the onion soup instead of the salad(having tasted my husband's on a previous visit) and loved it. I have tried to duplicate Fleming creamed spinach at home and have to say I haven't succeeded. I wish I had gotten the heirloom tomato salad as one of our party did. She was still raving about it the next day. The wait staff was outstanding, helpful and attentive,but not abtrusive. A great night out.

Overall nice experience
Atmosphere was quiet and reserved, which is what we wanted. Our Server didn't hover as we reviewed the wine options, and was helpful in providing recommendations. We ordered French onion soup and a wedge salad. Both were excellent. I ordered a filet, while my husband ordered the bone-in ribeye. Being a steakhouse, the steak should be spot on. And it was! Cooked perfectly, no complaints. However, the sides left a little to be desired. We had Flemings potatoes (greasy) and the chipotle mac and cheese (runny). We enjoyed the flavor of both, but overall execution was lacking. We would definitely visit again, but would skip the sides. We'd have been better off sticking with wine, apps, and steaks, skipping the sides, and saving room for dessert!

Food and service was excellent as always. Waiter was very knowledgeable of wine pairings and recommendations on the menu.
He was right on!

Everything was done just right--the food we had was outstanding. For dessert, we had the cheesecake, which our waiter highly recommended, and it was perhaps the very best cheesecake my wife and I have ever had--it was made in-house.

Mother's Day Brunch
I am a repeat customer at Flemings and enjoy every special occasion at that restaurant. The best aspect is the service... not bothersome like some but always attentive and you never want for anything. The food is very good but portion size is sometimes a problem. I would go back, of course.

Went for my 44th Birthday and had a wonderful experience. The service was excellent - our server, Sean, really kept on top of things while giving some space to celebrate. The food was outstanding. Even though both of us did not have steak, my Pacific Swordfish was fantastic, as was my wife's lamb chops. The wine was great - loved having such a phenomenal list to choose from. Overall, it was a memorable evening. Can't wait to do that again!
5/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had the most knowledgeable waitress have had in a long, long time. She knew her steaks, wine and perfect sides. Did not come around too much nor too little. Normally the wait staff interferes with a good meal, she really complemented the dining evening.

Solid and cOnsistent
Consistent national chain.food here was consistent with other cities nationally.only criticism was the service though good seemed rushed.overall

Wonderful Birthday Celebration!
We were so impressed with Fleming's in every way. This was not our first visit, we have been several times before. However, it just seems to get better and better. We started out with the Seafood Tower, such a special treat! The entire table were satisfied with their entrees of lobster, swordfish, filet and NY strip cooked to perfection. The chocolate lava cake was the perfect ending to the meal. Service was very attentive, we loved our waitstaff. Chef even sent a special surprise at the end of the meal. Very nice touch!

Great place for anniversary dinner. Take excellent care of you.

Service was subpar for Flemming's.
We have dined here a lot over the years and have never been disappointed with the food or service. The food was excellent, but the service was a big disappointment. We could hear other servers making an effort to accommodate their guest in the usual Flemming's standard manner, but our server seemed more of a moderate bare-minimum kind of guy. We are not snobbish, but it's nice to have good food and good service occasionally.

Have eaten there several times
Have eaten there several times previously. Great food - never had a bad meal. A bit pricy. Good for special occasions. Tends to be a bit noisy, particuarly if you have some in the party that have soft voices. Specialty is steaks but there are options for those who are not into meat. I would go there again for a special occasion.

Fleming's is a very consistent high end Steakhouse. The food is always high end and makes it an easy choice to people such as myself that travels alot.

Took a chance based on online reviews and was treated to an excellent meal and excellent service.

The waiter was very attentive but not obtrusive. I travel for work and eat at fine restaurants all over the country and the filet at Flemings was the best I've had in along time.

Flemings in Birmingham
Our food and service were both excellent. The only negative is they were out of the Bar B Que Salmon Entrée. The Wine was wonderful and the waiter explained the winepad in detail.

Fleming's is a superstar restaurant
I recently dined at Fleming's in Birmingham with a client/friend and, as always, the food and service were beyond first-class! I look for every excuse to go there and always know I am going to eat a great steak there...it's a no-miss proposition.
7/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
As always Fleming's never disappoints. The porcini crusted filet with gorgonzola sauce is not to be missed.

Good for Business Conversation
Had a good meal. Server recognized I was there on business and he have us time for discussion. Food was good, service was excellent. Great place to discuss business.

Great overall experience.
Dining here isn't cheap but the food is high quality. Service is attentive and our server had good knowledge of the menu. Great atmosphere with beautiful low-lighting.

Great birthday celebration!
Enjoyed every part of this meal, service was outstanding. Our server knew exactly when to check on us and when to leave us to our conversation. Her timing was perfect! The food was great as it always is at Flemings. It looks like they are trying with some lighter (both calories and price) to appeal to more people since not everyone can enjoy Flemings price range. Top quality rib eye steak!

The was a good experience overall. I love Flemings so I expect excellence when I visit them based on past experiences.The food during this visit was not as usual, but good.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Drinks were perfect and our food was perfect. We will definitely return.

Nice but dark and loud
2nd time to this Fleming's... Seemed so dark and loud- on a Wednesday night.... in at 6:45 and done by 8:10..drink service seemed a little slow- food service was perfect- steaks were not cooked enough- asked for a medium well and it came out medium rare but we kept it... place was louder than 1st time- quality of steaks is excellent! Manager stopped by table twice....BLT salad was mostly lettuce-not that good

Best resturant in the Birmingham
Best resturant in the Birmingham area. We live out of town but whenever we're in town. This is the place we eat at. Been there numerous time. Never had a bad meal.

I found it a bit pricey relative to other steakhouses of similar caliber.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I usually pick Fleming's when we want a steak. It never disappoints, and the service is very good. Always a pleasant experience even if a little hard on the wallet. I do wish the wine pours were slightly more for the price you pay. Otherwise no complaints.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was fantastic, the atmosphere amazing, the service wa heavenly, and it was well worth the price when u add in all of the atmosphere and service. I will definitely come here again.

Delicious food, great service
Flemings offers fantastic steak, seafood, and desserts. The wine list is also so large they use an iPad app for you to browse it. Very cool.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary and everyone we came in contact with made it a very memorable experience. Thanks to everyone!

Steaks a tad off
The meal would have been perfect except for over-seasoning of the steaks. Way too much pepper!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great experience as always. We have come to expect that from Flemings. Delicious food and exceptional service!

Service was great - Had a client event during lunch when they are closed for 17 people - Sheena & Collin were GREAT servicing & setting everything up. Tish did a great job overseeing & making sure our needs were met & Flemings gave everyone a beautiful gold ribboned box w/home made truffles & a $25 gift card for the restaurant with dessert - definitely recommend for private functions as well as dinner!
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Every time we go to Flemings the steak is perfect. Seasoned perfectly, cooked perfectly and you can usually cut it with a butter knife. Wonderful service, wonderful food. Flemings is pricey, but you do get what you pay for.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
When I made the reservation via the internet I put a side comment in that it was a special occasion for us that night. When we arrived they greeted us by and congratulated us. The food was excellent and the service was almost perfect. Even the manager on making his rounds stopped at our table and said congratulations. All in all the entire dinning experience was outstanding.
10/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
I had the Newport Filet entree, and it was absolutely delicious. Steak was cooked just the way I like it, the Oscar-style presentation was attractive, and the Fleming's potatoes were very good. Service was attentive but not pushy. Price was certainly reasonable, given the quality of the food. Overall, the best meal I've had anywhere in a while.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful night out!!
We went to this restaurant for our anniversary celebration and we had a great time! I was given a rose by the hostess and a box of truffles as a gift before I left!! The food was great but a little pricey... For us, this is a special occasion restaurant only because of the pricing. Overall, our experience was great and we recommend this to anyone.

My steak was very good. The person whose birthday we were celebrating had the filet and I was not as impressive as one of the others at our table. I had the peppercorn steak and it was very good. The cheesecake was o.k. but not outstanding. Wine very good. Everyone was very accommodating. The noise level was a bit loud.

This is one restaurant where you can take friends or clients and be assured that the food and service will be excellent.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
I took my girlfriend for her Birthday and she said it was, "The Best Birthday Ever." Food was amazing, service was great, and the price was reasonable for such a fancy evening. They brought us a great Birthday Cake at the end which was hand made and delicious! I can't say enough about the STEAK! WOW! Thank you Flemming's for a special night.
