The dining room was larger
The dining room was larger and more open than I expected. The kitchen is open to the entire dining room so it is a large room bustling with activity. You may like this or not depending on the personality of your group.

Great for special events
Set the scene - birthday dinner- group of four - cloth covered tables-low lighting-very relaxed-could actually hear each other talk. Whoa! They didn't brew their own tea! Oh, Flemings does serve Coca-Cola products- the day was saved, and it got better. Bread with two spreads, a roasted tomato and a Feta, was served. Yum! We ordered salads. Mine was with cranberries & walnuts-excellent Balsamic dressing. The small plate with filet mignon was excellent. Everything is a la carte, but the sides are enough to share. We each ordered a side & shared among us. We had more than enough food, so much more that we had to pass on dessert, which was very tempting. Bottom line, we all enjoyed the great food and atmosphere-we will return.

My boyfriend and I went to
My boyfriend and I went to Fleming's to celebrate his receiving a great job offer. Overall we had a great experience and definitely will go back. The service was great, the food was delicious, all the food came out at a reasonable time, and most of all I was impressed when our waitress brought out a complimentary box of chocolates for my boyfriend. He LOVES chocolate so he was thrilled. We had a great dining experience and hope to go back soon.

OUTSTANDING - Start to Finish
Third time dining here, and each tme seems to get better. I highly recommend Flemings in Madison, WI. Ryan M. was our server each time we have dined here, and he is exceptional. The service is top notch! The food incredible.

Sunday Prime Rib Special a Treat
We dropped in to Fleming's to try their Sunday Prime Rib special. It was a treat, and a very good deal. Fleming's provided a beautiful and bounteous slab of perfectly cooked prime rib, with three dipping sauces, choice of a generous side, and a lovely salad, followed in our case by a delicious molten chocolate confection, all for under $40. Most enjoyable.
Service at Fleming sometimes strikes me as a bit pretentious and/ or condescending, as if they have to explain things to unsophisticated rubes. Didn't bother my partner, but got a bit under my skin. Service was otherwise competent.
Not yet sure where I would rank Flemings if paying full price for other menu items, but I will return for the prime rib special and maybe for regular menu.

I went go Flemings for my anniversary and it was the best meal my wife and I had ever had. We got the porcini rubbed filet, Flemings potatoes, creamed spinach, lobster tails (the biggest and best we had ever had), a bottle of wine. We love to come here and will continue to come back. Best in Madison. LOVE this place!

Nice night out - the Discount helps
We aren't normally into steak houses of the type that Flemings represents but every now and then it seems like a good choice - especially when we've got a $25 off coupon that is soon to expire. Food, service ambiance all were fine and as expected for the prices Flemings charges, and this Flemings is a short walk in our neighborhood. We had a late dinner in the dining room and a nice bottle of Syrah. Normally we skip desserts and just have coffee or finish the wine - this time we split the chocolate lava cake and have to admit it is a great decadent finale for a steak dinner. Really the only thing that didn't sit well with us for this visit was the piped in Adcom music - generally forgettable 70's/80's stuff.

For a special occasion
If you want a good steakhouse and are prepared for the prices (and relatively few options for non-steak eaters), you can't really go wrong here. The Caesar salad was the best I've ever had (we shared it and the kitchen did plate it for two); steaks are large (I took home half of the NY Strip); service was friendly and attentive but not intrusive. The only thing I don't like at Fleming's and other high-end steak places is the a la carte sides -- they are easily big enough for 2-3 people, but what if you don't like the same side dishes? Would it kill them to throw in a baked potato or small side of vegetable along side a $46 steak?

Great food, high price
We went for the Sunday night prime rib prix fixe dinner and it was more food than expected. Wine and coffee prices really drove up the bill.

In Madison for a couple of days. I use my "local" Fleming's in Texas and this location did a great job. On my radar if I get back to this pleasant city.

Went for anniversary. Service and attention were fantastic. Great wine list, but maybe a bit over priced. Food was great. We both had salads to start and then steaks which were cooked perfectly.

My second visit to Fleming's- Fabulous food, great wine list!, and wonderful service. Again, a great meal with a great fusion of flavors, great presentation, and attention to detail. I will be back.

Great atmosphere, service and food. Extensive wine list, presented on an I-pad. Very relaxing and enjoyable.

Too noisy trying to be hip with a young crowd who can't afford to eat there anyway. Small plates are a great addition but miss the shoe string potatoes!

As always, one of very favorite places to eat in Madison.

Everything was great! The steaks were delicious. It was pricey, but the excellent food was worth it.

Well worth the money
The food was exquisite, and we enjoyed great service. The best steak I have had in a very long time.

all of my Fleming's dining experiences have never disappointed. Madison , WI @ Midvale location was no different.
environment is energetic but not too loud, food was outstanding as usual, service was as well.

Excellent in all ways.
One of Madison's finest restaurants. From the moment the door is opened for you, and until you grab a mint as you leave, everything is done with class and excellence. Great ambience, food, service, wine and drinks.

Food was very good; hostess
Food was very good; hostess was not the best (we asked a question and got silence); prices are quite high for Madison.

For a Monday night - the place was not busy, so we got more attention, but not to much.
Meal was paced just right. For a business dinner, it did not become an event.
Food was good, everyone enjoyed themselves.
