I had a party of 8 to celebrate
I had a party of 8 to celebrate a relative's birthday.
We had the Seafood Tower for 4 and the items are quite good.
We all ordered steak except one friend who eats fish only.
Everyone had a great steak except mine.
My steak was over cooked and had to return for another one.
By the time my new order came, I was done with my dinner.
Overall its a good dinner!

Great steak dinner.
Atmospherics were as good as it gets.
Tom R the waiter was concerned with every detail... and the chef Mark O did a top notch job on our food with his entire staff... great place for date night and special occasion night!
We've had dinners at Flemings in Omaha, Palm Desert and now for the 1st time in Newport.... this was as good as it gets.

Service was excellent. Did not realize was such a casual atmosphere. . Short, shorts to suit & tie.??
Wine & food were very good. Pretty pricey for everyday diining but worth it for special occasion.

Always a favorite
Never been disappointed at this location, everything and everyone is top notch.

Fleming's...a must for steak lovers
They were accommodating in every way. We saw a table we liked better and they got it for us. We ran into some friends there and the hostess was gracious in not pushing us to the table. We had three people, and we had split a couple of items...and again they did it graciously! The mushrooms, steak, and accompaniments were to die for. And the onion rings...not to be missed. For those that like Cesar salads...it was a good one! And if it is your birthday, OMG, the chocolate truffles are a yummy delight they give to you in a little box to take home. A memorable wonderful experience you won't forget! Hats off to Flemmings!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic steak house.
What's not to like about this place. They will go out of their way to make sure your dining experience is as best as possible. The trio sauces really added flavor the the filet. Great time by all.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect night out!
Took my husband here for his birthday, it was a fabulous evening. The service was stellar and the food was amazing. We did bring our own bottle of wine, although they do have an incredible wine list, it's a $20 corking fee...
The lobster mashed potatoes are incredible. Calamari is probably the best calamari I have ever had out. Everything was great. We were stuffed to the brim, and skipped dessert, but our server would not let us leave without a small birthday treat for the hubby - he brought out little belgium chocolates, so good!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our server Hasina was excellent.
Our server Hasina was excellent. Will ask for her next time we make a reservation.

Expensive, but does not disappoint
Always a great steak for a special occasion. Overpriced but best steak in town!

30th Birthday Dinner
My first time at Flemings and I was blown away with the service I received! Well, the food was good too. Our server for the night was Khan and he was unbelievably attentive and overall amazing. Even surprised me with a box of chocolates for my birthday. I would definitely return to this location. Thank you for making my birthday that much more special! :)
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food - Service???
Let me start by saying that I love Flemings! The food is consistently good, and it was actually even better this time around as they have a new way of flat ironing the steaks to make them sort of crispy on the outside but juicy on the inside. Loved it! However, this was the second time I've gone there, that they didn't have a table ready at the time of our reservation and were not able to accommodate our request (a booth) unless we waited about 30-40 minutes. We ended up waiting another 30 minutes and got a booth (not my first choice booth, but a booth nonetheless). I was surprised though, because I had informed them that it was my anniversary, so I thought they would put a little extra thought into our table which they, sadly, did not.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The steak was cooked at the right temp. I enjoyed it very much. And the Prime Rib Dinner on Sunday is a very good deal. very full after the whole set. FYI, lamb chops are so good! The chocolate Lava cake is stunning. Will come back for the cake!
9/7/2013 5:00:00 PM
Staff great. Food delicious
Staff great. Food delicious and great place to celebrate a birthday for adults!!!

Wedge Salad superb
The Wedge Salad was superb and it only got better.....it was't Sunday, so we couldn't try the desserts.
Next time we will go on a Sunday.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Been here so many times-- for special occasions, for no occasion, for happy hour, or simply craving for steaks! You'll never go wrong here. Last week was to try their special Filet Mignon and Crab-Stuffed Shrimp for $32.95, AND a choice of French Onion Soup or The New Wedge Salad, for starters. What a deal! I loved, loved, loved the soup with the BIG chunk of Gruyère and loved, loved, loved my hubby's salad with another BIG chunk of blue cheese and bits of bacon! I'm already satisfied! But, here comes the super tender, juicy filet mignon which one should really forget the complimentary sauces, to simply enjoy the flavor of fantastic steak! There was lots to take home so that we could spare some room for strawberries and Chantilly cream!!!

We went to Fleming's to celebrate a birthday. Food was excellent, server was very knowledgeable, great evening.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Steak Lovers Paradise
Fleming's always shines because they have good management that assumes ownership as if they owned the restaurant. Consistent food quality and service. The steaks are worth what you pay for. I have eaten at the Newport Beach location numerous times as well as the Manhattan Beach location, San Diego and others. I like the fact they are part of Open Table because it simplifies the reservation process for me when I have clients. I don't have to search for a phone number etc. and then I can always use the online e-mail delivery that Open Table provides to contact my clients. We had drinks at near by Gulf Stream but chose Flemings because of the reservation capability on Open Table. They lost out on a $450 + Tab.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice Anniversary Dinner
Flemming's did a great job. Very nice inside, could be a little more quiet but the ambiance was great. Nice wine list and food selection. Everyone was so friendly.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a pleasure
They new wine app is awesome! You can search for over 100 wines by type and flavor. I have never had a bad meal and service is always pleasant and not overly attentive.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
All of the food was excellent
This is a very busy place. All of the food was excellent and delicious! The service was very good but timing seemed just a bit off. The manager came around and said hello which was a nice touch.
9/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
Excellent food service and ambiance
The title says it all. What more could you want from a restaurant. We love Flemings and eat there often
9/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
love this place the steaks
love this place the steaks are cooked to perfection and the ambiance is great unless you get put in the corner away from everyone.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
A rough start...
The night we are here began as a huge disaster-waiting over an hour to be seated for our reservation. Eventually found out that they had had a mix up with a couple of large parties which threw the entire night out of whack. Spoke to the manager several times and finally were seated. The good news is that he and our waiter really took care of us-free champagne, free appetizer, and great service from there on out. We really appreciated that they were concerned about the inconvenience and did everything they could to make our experience there great. Food was very good and we were served very quickly. Thank you. We will be back and try it again.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Flemings is the place to go for great food and wonderful service. We were celebrating 2 birthdays and everyone in our party was treated as if we were the honorees. We met the manager, Xavier, who was so gracious and accommodating that really made the evening so special. Food was delicious, as always! Newport Beach Flemings is exceptional. I wish it were closer to me.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fleming's never disappoints.
Always true to form, a great steakhouse. We started with the mushroom ravioli and the calamari, both superb. Then Caesar salads which we decided to have with our steaks. The sides are all wonderful and we were very tempted by the lobster mash, not this time though. Steaks were cooked to perfection, also this Flemings offered 'small plates' so one of us had the small filet over mushroom risotto. Taste and presentation excellent. I think we had the best waiter in the house, Brian, please request him if you go. Interestingly, this location had an equal mix of corporate and families dining. Given the amount of first clas restaurants in Newport Beach areas, this speaks highly for this restaurant. Highly recommend.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Newport filet mignon was quite good. The wedge salad was average. Mushroom side average. The peppered strip steak was thin enough that it was hard to cook rare. The small $10.50 slice of carrot cake at first tasted more like coconut.. The 100 Wines by the Glass is nice so that one can make it through the DUI check points so common in Newport and Laguna. The lady who waited on us was most pleasant and efficient. Probably will not return any time soon since it certainly did not feel like a $175 experience.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
You could cut it with a fork.
Let me start off by saying "Wow". We were greeted by the staff and said that it would be a wait for our "quiet" table. And with that we proceeded to the vibrant bar to order our bottle of wine. They have their wine list at the bar on an Ipad. After the wine was poured we were told our quiet table would be awhile. No problem, we just ordered appetizers. Great Calamari. The sweet and spicy made it one of the best ever. 'm glad we waited, because it was, as I put it, the best table in the house We proceeded to order the Filet Mignon for the the wife and I ordered the Bone-in Ribeye. Unbelievable. The best ever. We shared the wedge (and by the way, real big chunks of bleu cheese too).
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice , clean upscale..great for a business meeting or catching up with friends, noise level is high but the food and good service outweigh it. Not what I would call a romantic atmosphere but consistent good quality and great wine offerings.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Steaks in town.
The food is tremendous so is the service. There also is no rush to turn the table. It is a bit pricey but worth every penny in my view. I eat there regularly. I also tried out the new brunch service. It too was great.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome restaurant !
We went there for my 52nd birthday . They put us down in the wine cellar, wonderful ambience & much quieter . Jimmy our server was great! The Fleming potatoes were to die for!
We will definitely be back!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed our visit to Flemings in Newport Beach. The Steaks were beyond good and our waitress was very helpful in guiding us to dishes we may have overlooked. The atmosphere was a little noisy for our Wedding Anniversary celebration than we thought it would be, but it was a Friday evening and the crowd was large. Overall, we would return again and take a group with us to enjoy the food!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM

One of our favorite restaurants. Excellent food, great service and lovely ambiance.

Great food. Was seated downstairs
Great food. Was seated downstairs for the first time. Do not like background music. Instrumental music would be better. There is enough talking from the diners.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Good every time
We have been to several different Flemings and find them all good and the food consistent. If you want a great steak and a choice of over 100 wines, this is the place.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I can't wait to go again and have a meal. It was so nice and the waiters and waitress were so nice and helpfull.
10/30/2013 5:00:00 PM

Tried and true favorite. Don't
Tried and true favorite. Don't expect to get out of there for less than $100 per person but it's with it for special occasions.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
My girlfriends and I all have birthdays around the same time and we always are looking for a great venue to celebrate. We were treated like totality! We were seated at a nice quiet table where we could celebrate without disturbing other diners. We were given complimentary chocolates for our birthdays and to top it all off, the food was excellent! A great time eras had by all!'
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was absolutely amazing.
It was absolutely amazing. Everything was perfect. I had the signature peppercorn steak and that was incredible.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Service was good, food was very good. Very busy on Saturday night and fairly loud, but fun atmosphere. Servers aren't stuffy, which I think adds a lot to the experience.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
excellent dining experience
Everything was fantastic and Khan was amazing. Only complaint is that the lobster bisque was a little on the brothy side, I personally like it a bit creamier. Steaks were fantastic. Can't wait to go again.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Expect the best in Newport Beach
Reservation was seamless and we were seated within 2 minutes of arrival. The server was friendly, knowledgeable, there when we needed him and not when we wanted to converse. The food was great as always. We have eaten here at least a dozen times in the past few years and have never once been disappointed. Our steaks were delicious, prepared perfectly, flavorful and tender. The Lobster Mac and Cheese side dish is good - could be a bit better, but everything else was superb. Flemings is pricy but well worth it for a special occasion when everything is about friends or family and you needn't have to worry that the service or food will not be up to standard.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good but not great
Staff was friendly, helpful and attentive.
Ordered the Ribeye medium as described by waiter to be bright pink. My experience is that would be Med-Rare, but ordered per her recommendation.
Steak arrived cooked to a slight pink which for me is too well done. For a $47 dollar steak, I also thought that it was a bit small.
Side dishes were all great. Hit of the night were the Polenta fries... a must try..
We will come back but this time forearmed regarding degree of doneness.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fabulous wines, perfect steaks
What attracted my interest in Fleming's was their amazing wine list and that they have 100 wines by the glass. We were not disappointed - the wines we ordered were all divine. And of course the steaks were fantastic! The service was great, and we all had a wonderful time.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Service and Delicious Food
Although Flemmings is known for its steak and beef entrees, the lobster was totally delicious and fresh. The servers and staff were very attentive and friendly.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and service
Started with the warm brie puff pastry appetizer and it was excellent.
Next was a split wedge salad - amazing. Love the caramelized bacon. Plenty big for the split.
For the main course, we did two "small plates": seared ahi and sliced filet mignon. Both were outstanding.
Overall, Great food and service but you do pay for it. Kind of expensive.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
I brought customers here and we really enjoyed it. Food was good as well as service. It could be quite noisy, but we got a table off to the side where it was a bit more quiet.
