Best food & service
My husband & I were in the mood for steaks so we decided to check Flemings, and it definitely exceeded our expectations. It was also very romantic, maybe perhaps a little too dark. He ordered the bone in rib eye, & he said it was the best he ever had. The prices are definitely steep, but was worth it. I highly recommend the mac & cheese, but pass on the sauteed mushrooms. Overall, the service & food was top notch!

My husband really enjoyed his fathers day dinner.
I asked for a cozy corner booth and we were seated in exactly that. A bit away from other tables. Very nice.

My daughter and I took my husband to Fleming's for Father's Day and he ordered a steak. He is very, very picky about his steaks and has sent many back to the chef in the past because they weren't done to his specification. I am delighted to report that he said the Fleming's steak was the best he has ever had IN HIS LIFE! My scallops and my daughter's crab cakes were also excellent.

Nice B-Day Celebration
Went to Flemings for my B-day with the family including the grandkids. Very attentive, not intrusive, wait staff .Great service and even a good child's menu.. The steaks were great as usual. Because it was a sunday night the noise level was less then on a week night or a Fri./Sat. night.

This is one of our go to restaurants for consistency and delicious food. There are several choices of steak, salad, sides and wine.
7/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fleming's is by far the best steakhouse in Houston - the quality and preparation of the steaks is stellar, the sides are always superb, and service is congenial yet unobtrusive. Wish the W Alabama location was larger to accommodate guests in a more timely manner (we waited 30+ minutes after our reservation time for a table), but the wait was worth the consistent treat that is Fleming's!

Dinner was delightful...the food was delicious, the server friendly and informative and the setting excellent
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food always consistently good.
My wife is a vegetarian but eats some fish and she raves about the alternatives to meat on the menu. Our waitress was also wonderful with my wife's gluten allergy and they get huge points for having a gluten free menu. The service is always perfect as well even though we had a small hiccup at dinner on Sunday. Our dessert took a long time to come out. However, we were not in a hurry so we didn't complain or say anything because it really was no big deal. Even though we never said anything, the manager offered to take our dessert off of the bill which was very nice. I thought that was wonderful customer service. I will keep coming back here over and over.

I was taking a friend there for his introduction to Fleming's and it couldn't have gone any better.

Great Steak and Service
Excellent steaks, great service, and a fantastic wine list!
The waiter did try to overcharge me for an extra bottle of water, but corrected it. This is the first time that has happened to me here, so I am going to assume that it was just a mistake and not intentional.

Great steak place
We decided to go here the last minute to celebrate early my husband's 65th birthday a few days early and have the Houston Restsurant Week menu. We had to send our steaks back to cook a little longer. They came back right and very tasty . For HRW they gave us a 6 oz steak with soup or salad, scalloped potatoes and creamed spinach and mashed potatoes and a dessert. Plenty of food for $45 which $7 of this goes to the Houston Food bank. A very good cause!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We eat her frequently. They always make it a great experience and wonderful food, wine and service. Looking forward to the next time.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food choices is okay. I did not like the onion soup too much. But I love the wine list and choices of wine. Great place to hangout for just 2. I will go again.

Everything was great about Flamings, not a single complaint. The wine flight was a definite bonus. Steak, sides, dessert, it was all delicious.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, exceptional service, clean and comfortable dining experience. Like the new ipad wine list. staff is always friendly and helpful.

Not as good as usual
My husband and I dine here pretty often. However this visit was not as good as past visits. Our appetizer came out charred, to put it kindly, and when we told our waiter he threw his hands up and said I'm just the waiter! Well, duh. Anyway, our steaks were not as good as usual and the bacon on my wedge salad was beef jerky at best. They instead brought me crumbled bacon. We will return to this location due to good experiences in the past. We blame restaurant week for the noise, overcrowdedness, and all the loud, inconsiderate people that filled the dining room. We will return post September 2...

We made reservations but had to wait about 15min past our time to actually be seated because they were really busy. Besides this part of the service, everything else was great. The food was really good and prepared exactly how we ordered (A NY Strip and the Filet). Service was great once we were seated and the waiter and manager apologized for our wait and even gave us complimentary dessert because of it without us even asking or saying anything - we thought this was a nice touch. We will be going back again.
8/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
Very good bone-in ribeye and one of the best baked potatoes I've ever had. Great cocktail and wine list. Truly great night with friends.

Eddie was great!
Went to celebrate my husband's birthday. Food was wonderful (never have been disappointed). Love the HRW menu. After we told Eddie our waiter about my husband's birthday he brought truffles and a gift card to the table. Very nice touch!!

The service was not up to the usual standard. Our waiter seemed to always in long conservations with other tables while we had to flag him or others down.

My Wife and I spent our Anniversary night here. It is a really nice place. You have multiple people coming to your table all night. The waiter was very knowledgeable about all the questions we had. I like this place and we will return. A+++++

Our first visit to Fleming's River Oaks was part of my wife's Birthday Weekend; food was great, steaks prepared to a tee, very attentive server, wonderful wine. Take your family for a treat.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is always great, steaks always cooked perfectly. I would go there more frequently if I lived closer, so for now it always makes for a perfect special occasion place for me and the wife.

As always,the food was very good and the service excellent. The bar was at capacity the entire time we were dining and more than likely well after!
Great place for that special dinner with family, friends or business associates!

Enjoyable atmosphere/YUMMY food!
It was a very nice evening. We celebrated my husband's birthday and our wedding anniversary. They gave us two gift cards (with expiration dates, but understandable) and some truffles as a gift at the end of the evening.
The filet and prime rib were excellent, as was the sauteed spinach. Heck, it was all good!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been to Flemings many times and have never had a bad meal. The ideally cooked steaks are Consistently prepared perfectly. Drinks are expertly prepared; the bread is hot and fresh; even the butter is at the right consistency.
Go and enjoy. You won't be disappointed.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love coming to Flemings anytime we just want to spoil ourselves and enjoy a really stellar meal. My wife had experienced a really tough work week, so I scooped her up and took her to Flemings. Our waiter was Charles, and he really delivered the goods, the service, the menu and wine knowledge, and the energetic tone. We tried the small plate of Lobster Tempura, which was absolutely stellar. We also tried the sweet chili Calamari, which was absolutely delicious. Charles was incredibly knowledgeable about the very extensive wine list. We ordered the Grgrich Hills Cabernet with our boneless rib-eyes, and had such a wonderful dining experience. Flemings is one of our top-five favorite restaurants in Houston!

Food quality outshines grillmaster
Since this location has a reputation for being VERY crowded and boisterous, going on a light Monday evening was a great idea.
The quality of the food is very good. Our meal choices were basic hearty food and all was very well prepared except that our steak was overcooked. We ordered the chef-recommended medium rare (warm red center) and we received a steak that was definitely medium (warm pink center, well done on the perimeter). I would not have expected that mistake from a STEAKHOUSE restaurant. Since the meat was such a high quality cut, it didn't affect the tenderness of the end result, and we didn't feel the need to send it back... but still disappointed. Maybe the "first string" grill masters are off on Monday since it's not crowded?
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
always a pleasure
I love going to Fleming's. Food is always delicious, the people are always on top of their jobs and it is always a wonderful time.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious but expensive
Definitely more of a VERY special occasion type place. Although it was extremely delicious I can't see myself going back to shell out $50 for just a steak, side dishes are extra (and mediocre at best). There were three of us and we each ordered different steaks, the bone-in rib eye was easily the most delicious of the three we ordered and one of the better steaks I've had in the city for sure. Three people, an appetizer (crab cakes, very good), two cheap bottles of wine ($12 at Specs, $40 at Flemings), and three different cuts of steak... = $300 tab before gratuity. It was good but I feel there are restaurants in Houston with comparative steaks for a good $20/per steak cheaper. Our server was awesome though, wish I could remember her name!
10/17/2013 5:00:00 PM
This was a great place to have a pre-celebratory birthday dinner. The Food and wait staff was great and attentive to all of our dining experience needs. Will be returning soon!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
we celebrated our son's college acceptance with a nice dinner out. fleming's was first on his list. he dined there with his prom group earlier in the year. everyone kindly noticed our orange attire which we wore proudly! i think each employee's acknowledgement with a congratulatory comment made him enjoy his meal even more. thank you fleming's!

Armed with an AMEX coupon,
Armed with an AMEX coupon, we headed to Fleming's for a Friday night steakhouse experience and were mostly pleased. Instead of two separate apps, we started with one of the shareable starters--the seared ahi tuna served with a julienned vegetable salad and ginger. It was probably the best thing we had. One of us ordered the Alaskan King Crab while the other went for the more traditional Filet Mignon. The filet was pretty good and while the crab was tasty, it seemed harder to get at the meat than usual. Wish that we had passed on the grilled asparagus--smallish spears, at least a third of which were mushy and the rest of which fairly bland. While there is an extensive wine list, there are extensive markups as well--$40 for Mark West PN

Flemings Nov 2013
We are fans of Flemings and usually have great service. this time, however, our waiter was not what we are used to. Others stepped in and took great care of us. also, they have changed the French Fries- I think this happened a while ago but we had not ordered them in our last few visits. We prefer the old version much better!

I missed a friend's birthday and invited her to dinner at Flemings. We had a great time and the food was wonderful and we ended the meal with a Lava Cake. Superb!

Second time we've been here
Second time we've been here and happy to see that the food was just as great as before and the service was also incredible. We will definitely be back as it's hard to find a consistently good fine dining steak place.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is an upscale restaurant without the stuffy attitude. The menu had more options than most steak houses. I was able tote a smaller plate of scallops that had a side dish on the plate. Every bite was delicious. My husband had the prime rib Sunday special. He was pleased as well. Service was excellent.

Fantastic steaks and fish but limited menu otherwise. Very nice kids menu. This is a quiet and dark atmosphere which makes conversation easy.
