Looking for an Excuse
A little disappointed at how pricey everything was. Side salads
started at $8.50 and of course everything was a la carte.
However, the food,wine,ambiance and service were all excellent.
We will save the place for special occasions, but I am
already looking for an occasion/excuse to go back.

Still great but a slight disappoint
My Fourth trip this year. See my previous reviews for details. This trip had one disappointment because I did not get a thick bone-in ribeye. 2 of 3 steaks were perfect. My ribeye was a thinner bigger cut which was not the best prepared medium well (my request). This steak was not there usual and the manager had a lame excuse as to how some were just like that and that I should be specific about ordering and getting a thick cut the next time.
Given that I had the same experience at two other high end steak places last month I will give them the benefit of a doubt. I think the definitice description of a "Cowboy Ribeye" is changing with the availability of the cut from the suppliers.

High end steakhouse experience
Conveniently located at The Greene in Dayton, this classic steakhouse offers typical fare at a top shelf price. Cold salad forks and very hot steak plates will give you the extremes of temperature when food is served. A la carte sides are all very good.

The Fleming's staff were very accommodating and made our special occasion dinner extra special. It was out anniversary, and right from the get-go, they wished us a happy anniversary, making it feel extra special. Thy gave us complimentary truffles and a gift card to commemorate our visit. That was very nice, and this gesture left a lasting impression on us. Thank you, Dayton Fleming's.

Hard to beat!
Had the most wonderful time at Flemings for my birthday. They are exactly what a fine dining steakhouse should be and I will have no problem recommending. Loved the wine list on the IPAD and our server was nothing short of exceptional. Keep it up!! I WILL be back :) OH YEA and my girlfriend off hand told them it was my birthday, Flemings had no problem sending me off with some truffles and a gift card for next time. Worth every penny.

Everybody already knows this
Everybody already knows this but the prices are pretty high. I guess they have to pay for their iPad "Wine Pads" one way or another... Food and service was GREAT! I'd call it a special occasion choice,

Easter at Fleming's
Fleming's had a great Easter menu that included both the traditional beef-based items and special brunch options. We all ordered differently and each of the plates was beautiful and delicious. Fun to have the entire wine list on the iPad. Nice touch. Our only issue was seating location. We were at a table directly behind the open kitchen -- fun to watch but extremely loud and made conversation difficult, particularly with senior adults in the mix. Overall, however, it was a great choice for Easter and we'd do it again.

My wife and I had a late Easter
My wife and I had a late Easter dinner at Fleming's. The only menu item not available was the Prime Rib special. Our server said they had served over 300 during people during the day so to be out of only one item is pretty remarkable. We both had filet mignon was prepared exactly as we asked. We also had the creamed corn and Fleming's potatoes both excellent. We both enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent.

Pleasant Surprise - Portions
This was our 1st experience at Fleming's. We were pleasantly surprised by portion sizes. In fact, if we had known side dishes were so large, we would have ordered less. Entire party had the filet and lobster tail listed only on their website. This came with choice of French Onion soup (best I have ever had) or wedge salad -- both again very generous in size. Wine list was impressive and I enjoyed the interactive tablet for choosing and exploring. A great experience -- we will return.

As my wife said at the conclusion
As my wife said at the conclusion of our meal - "the best filet I have ever had; cooked perfectly to my taste". A very inventive wine list on an interactive i-pad.
Flemings will always be on my destination list as I travel.

We always enjoy Flemings,
We always enjoy Flemings, have never had a bad meal there. This visit we decided to stay in the bar area so we could watch the Masters on TV. They only had one TV at the very end of the bar and two employees stood right in front of it, hanging out and watching the golf as well. This made it difficult for others to see everything. It appeared they had no idea they were blocking the view for guests and just stood and chatted while watching the golf.

Great tasting food. Overall
Great tasting food. Overall service was good. Not the best. Given that the restaurant wasn't full during this visit. I had to ask to get an item corrected /removed since it was never brought out. Wait staff wasn't attentive enough to the point that another wait staff checked up on our table.

Great food, pretty expensive but that was expected. A little pretentious with 2 different color napkins and chilled fork for such a tiny salad! Food was very good, service was good. Very dark.

We eat at Flemings a few times a year and it is always consistently good. I wish we would get one in Cincinnati!

Flemings is a Delight
Wonderful food and attentive service...and a wait staff that know the wine selections....all that and a clever iPad based interactive wine list. A fine evening and the Sunday Primerib special is just great!

Great food and service
We came here to celebrate Mother's Day and it was the first time that the six of walked away happy from a restaurant. My mother-in-law loved the chardonay/feta spread that comes with the bread. A few of us took advantage of the prime rib special and that turned out to be a great value. The rest ordered various steaks and they came out perfectly cooked. The service was great and it was really nice not to feel like we were being rushed through the dinner service.

Birthday dinner blast
We do not frequent Flemings often, but we have always had great food and service. It was my teenage son's birthday and they went out of there way to recognize it and gave him a box of chocolates at the conclusion of our meal. He had twin lobster tails which he described as delicious. No tacky birthday singing!
Kudos Flemings of Dayton!

A nice steak
This is my second visit to this Fleming's. The food was a bit better this time but the service was a bit worse. Last time, I thought the steak was slightly overcooked but, with the dimmer lighting, it was hard to tell. This time it was perfectly medium-rare. The last visit, the waiter helping us was always around and offered to mix the roasted garlic into the mashed potatoes. This time, the server was nice and polite but, relative to the previous visit, wasn't quite as helpful. Others brought the food and it was more than a few minutes before she stopped by to check on us. The service wasn't bad but, perhaps, not quite up to a $170 check for two people. An extensive but probably overpriced winelist.Try the onion rings as an appetizer.

Good steakhouse esp for a chain
I was impressed with this Flemings location. Food was very good as it should be for the price which is expensive. No complaints. If you want a great steak dinner and a nice bottle of wine this Flemings is a good choice.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
A great experience, for all
My sister was in town from New York and we brought her here to treat her for her birthday. We also brought our four year old daughter. Our server went out of her way to take care of our daughter and made her feel welcome. The food was as excellent as the service.

I always enjoy dinner at Fleming's.
I always enjoy dinner at Fleming's. I like the food and the environment. We had dinner mid week when the place
was half empty. I had a reservation. When I walked in the hostess said, "do you have a reservation?" It took her a moment
to check availability. I laughed because the place was half empty.
The filet mignon was excellent as usual. The half wedge salad was exceptional with new condiments.
Good evening was had by all

Among the best top$$ steak places
Flemings rivals places like Ruth's Chris and Morton's of Chicago for top-dollar steakhouses. Wine list is very good - especially for pairing with steak.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for hubby's birthday and had a great time. Service was fantastic as always and the food tremendous. We had seasonal dinner and surf and turf - lobster was perfection.

Everything I would expect from a good steakhouse, but there was nothing to make it great!

Unbeatable Food and Service
Best filet mignon I've had in years. When was the last time you had a steak served hot from the grill? Loved the asparagus as well. And Tim is the best server in Dayton. As always, we'll be back.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was great! Our waiter Kyle was very fun and prompt. Our entire party of 4 had the Prime Rib special (Sundays) and enjoyed every mouth watering bit! We also booked our rsvp on open table and it couldn't be easier or faster. Thanks Again!

Great Food... Don't Valet Park
Great food and service.
Valet service is not as he took another patron's Mercedes S550 for a joy ride in the parking lot. I did let their managment know about it...
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband took me to Flemings for my 50th birthday. Steak is my favorite food - I order it almost every time we go out - and I have to say this was the best steak I've EVER had in my life. I had the bone-in ribeye and it was melt in your mouth delicious. My husband ordered the fillet mignon and it was really good too. We also really loved the chipotle macaroni and cheese and the Flemings potatoes. The sides are huge, so they are enough to share, but we each ordered two sides for leftovers.
I only wish that Flemings would enforce a dress code. It's surprising to me the number of people who come to fine dining restaurants (with young children no less) dressed as if they are going to Denny's.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went for the first time to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Our waiter, Zack, impressed us right off by seating us personally and properly pronouncing our last name. Most do not. From there he took excellent care of us! Suggested the right wine, right dishes, and even added candles to our desert! He topped it off with chocolates to take home.
The fillets were amazing and cooked perfectly. Best we have ever had and we've been to the top steak houses in the area.
We even saw the awesome service to another couple who had a steak cooked incorrectly. The way they took care of them was proof the the staff care about everyone's experience.
We will be back! Our new favorite restaurant!
Thank you for making the evening special!

Always a great time!
We frequent Flemings for many occasions and have never had anything less that a great time. The service is always great, the food melts in your mouth, and sitting near the bar gives you plenty of entertainment. The Tomahawk steak is coming to Dayton, can't wait. The lobster tails always melt in your mouth.
9/12/2013 5:00:00 PM

We had a wonderful server who was attentive without being over-bearing. Our steaks were perfectly prepared and served hot from the grill. What more can you ask?

First visit to Flemings
We visited Flemings at the Greene in Kettering/Dayton, Ohio in September, 2013.
We were looking for someplace close, yet special, to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. We made a good choice in Flemings.
The steak and all side dishes were outstanding, the service was impeccable, and I'm still trying to find words to describe the incredible taste and texture of their Prime Ribeye steak. It is definitely a restaurant that we'll consider again in the future for special occasions.

Very nice steakhouse
My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner here. I felt it was nice they offered complementary valet service as the Greene can get a little hectic. We really enjoyed their butters with the bread as we looked over the menu. I had the Flemings salad and my husband had the small plate lamb chops as a first course and both were good. I really liked the interactive wine menu tablet, and enjoyed the wine I selected. My husband and I were both happy with our steaks. My husband had the turtle pie, which was very tasty, and I had the creme brulee. The waitstaff were very attentive. The noise level was moderate, which seemed just fine for having a conversation. We'll have to come back. I hear a lava cake calling my name for next time!

My Last Meal
If, I knew I was going to die tomorrow, I would eat dinner at Flemings Steakhouse tonight, it was that good. The best meal of my life. I closed my eyes to savor every bite.

Waiter was friendly, helpful and considerate. His suggestions were very good. The steaks are delicious. This is a family favorite!
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Attentive service; good, but not memorable, salad; tender juicy steaks, one of which was too done on one end. Had we mentioned it, the problem would have been quickly resolved, but we didn't comment. Very nice bread with two spreads was also served.
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
I am always happy with my food and service. I would compare the steaks to Jeff Ruby's in Cincinnati. Everyone is so friendly.
