Our first visit to Flemings
Our first visit to Flemings with another couple. Excellent selection of wines. The steaks and side dishes were all cooked exactly as ordered and tasted delicious. Really enjoyed our meal and the waiter was attentive, even on a busy Saturday night.

So there is no lack of grills and steak places in the Bay Area, but Fleming's in Palo Alto is definitely one of the best! Everyone in our party of nine who were there to celebrate my wife's birthday really enjoyed their meals! The optional sauces, served on the side (very important!) were all very good and complemented the various cuts of perfectly cooked to order steaks!
Everyone's steaks were cooked as ordered. The service was EXCELLENT! One sign of good service is all our orders were delivered at the same time. I don't mean two or three at a time by one server, but rather enough servers to deliver all the dishes together. Never empty water glasses and just the right amount of attention made for a perfect dinner!

Great place for a dinner meeting.
Great place for a dinner meeting. Great food. You don't have to shout to be heard by other people at the table. The waiter does not rush you. From the time we entered, the hostess made us feel at home and so did everyone else.

Friday Night - Lite Dinner
We had a wonderful experience at Flemings last Friday. We stopped in for a lite bite to eat and ordered two of the small plates for dinner with a side of lobster mac and cheese. We recommend all of the dishes. It was just right. Our server was wonderful.

Fleming's was a great experience.
Fleming's was a great experience. From the choice of napkins to match our clothing, to the electronic wine list, to the generous portions of perfectly cooked food, to the lovely dessert choices, we had a terrific meal, and a special evening. Could not have been better!

We enjoyed our lovely dinner
We enjoyed our lovely dinner at Fleming's.
Our server, Cash Ritchie was very attentive and accommodating.
The baked brie is delicious...we ordered it as an appetizer, but it is tasty enough to be dessert!

Flemings Palo Alto -- Superb!!
Always superb/excellent; not inexpensive, but food quality, portions, service, etc. make it an excellent value...indeed, a most satisfying occasion. Perhaps the best endorsement comes from the fact that every time we've been to Flemings Palo Alto the place is packed. Also, we're impressed with (& appreciate) how the Maitre D' is constantly working the room & monitoring the kitchen to make sure things are running smoothly + he stops at your table to personally check on things. Visible, sensitive & caring! The staff is great; they all care and it shows!

Good tasting menu
Small plates, filet mignon on risotto, asparagus, short ribs, good and easy to share for a quick and tasty bite before a book club meeting. Wine list for 'by the glass' tastes good. Will try dinner some time.

A GREAT steak house. My husband
A GREAT steak house. My husband had the best steak he has ever had and this speaks volumes. My daughter was going in for major surgery and we wanted to treat her to her favorite meal filet with chimichurri and molten lava cake for dessert -- they did not disappoint. She's still recovering from surgery and still can't eat solid but she wants to go there for dinner when she gets discharged fro the hospital.

Great local spot to get a yummy filet. Definitely try out their mac & cheese.
4/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had very good time there!
We went to there for our anniversary and our daughter's birthday dinner. The service and food are very fine. We will come back for next time.

Thanks to Steven our waiter who helped us nicely and polite to customers. Really appreciate it.

When you crave a great steak
This was our third visit here, maybe fifth time at a Fleming's. It is always consistent. Excellent service, a nice evening out for meat eaters, but be prepared for pricey dishes. After a few appetizers, we had ribeyes and filet mignon. Everything was tasty and cooked to perfection, the service was very good, attentive but not obtrusive.

I am a huge fan of this restaurant
I am a huge fan of this restaurant my only complaint is that the lighting was too dim and my eyes were starting to hurt after a while. Our server Sandra E was Amazing! Very friendly and very sweet! Can't wait to come here again!

I usually come to this restaurant
I usually come to this restaurant on sunday since I love their prime rib. Their prime rib dinner only serve on sunday. My friend and I both order the same, mine is pretty good but his prime rib a little bit over cook. This is the first time they cook a little bit over, but I still want to give it a try next time. The dessert are excellent specially cream burlee and the chocolate lava cake!

I was here twice, and ate
I was here twice, and ate different varieties of steak both times (and tried some of what my friends got). I tried filet mignon, which was very good at "medium rare" (but not so good at medium); I also tried peppercorn steak, which was not exactly to my taste - the pepper obscured the meat flavor. The signature side "Flemings potatoes" is good but it's so huge that I only ate a spoon or two of it before becoming full.
There's an impressive wine list conveniently presented and categorised in different ways on an ipad.

Quality Service & Steak
Excellent steak quality. Sides are a la carte; therefore, if you order a steak (or any other main item), that's the only thing that'll appear on the white plate. Came here to try the steakhouse since I've always passed by it during my shopping trips at Stanford mall. My party was a bit disappointed the plates are a la carte. We are use to having variety on the plates and just eating a big steak which seemed like a pound worth of meat was a bit overwhelming. I also had the lobster tails that was a bit overcooked since it was not very moist/flavorful. Added a side of the sauteed mushrooms and the flavor of the pepper smoked cooking style is much too alike from the steak.
The free bread with the 2 kinds of spread was excellent!

Great Steak House
Can't go wrong with any dish and the service was outstanding. The ambient noise is on the loud side and the tables are kind of big if there are only two dining. Suggest sitting on the side of your date as opposed to sitting across due to the noise level and distance. This place was highly recommended to me by a friend and I would high;y recommend this place too.
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food and services is always great at Fleming's Steak house.
Excellent location for shopping and have dinner at Stanford
5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went there for wife birthday dinner. Overall a great experience. They treated her like a QUEEN!
Food were great. We all loved it.
Will be going back
5/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food outdoes the service
The food was excellent but the service left a little to be desired. Call it a Sunday night effect but our waiter forgot one of my party's drink, salad, and we needed another waiter to refill our water. I'd go again for the food.

Parent with Stanford student
Very good experience - start to finish. We were not in a hurry but the food came out very quickly and efficiently. They work very well as a team to make the experience quite enjoyable. No complaints only rave reviews.
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We will be back very soon!
This was an amazing dinner. We came early in the evening so it was very quiet and we had almost the full attention of our server. I had the best salad ever it was a wedge, which is hard to do wrong but also hard to reinterpret. They placed a whole slab of blue cheese against the wedge of iceberg (I saved half of it for a yummy dessert with some of the bread). They also had a spicy piece of bacon on the plate which had a great balance to the dressing. I would come back just for this salad but luckily all of the food tasted as delicious. I regret not trying the Fleming potatoes from my husband but the way he talked about them I'm afraid I would have lost a hand trying to sneak a bite.

Good Deal with Great Service
I came for the Father's Day Brunch. It was for a three course brunch with a $25 gift card for fathers. Very attentive service. The three courses came seamlessly. I gave 4* on food is because my medium rare Prime Rib came medium with no pink color and slightly dry. We enjoyed our experience and will come back again to experiment other stuffs on the menu.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Flemings, great food!
Had great service with William, we closed the restaurant down, but never felt rushed, even the manager came by for a nice conversation! Would recommend if in the mood for red meat , had the scallops, excellent!
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Flemings doesn't disappoint!
The prime rib special on Sundays is a great deal and very good, I had the prime rib at Sundance recently and it was dry and overdone so I was really happy that Flemings does a good job with it! The wine list is a little pricey but there are a lot of selections and they will let you try a couple of wines (that they have buy the glass) before buying a bottle. I don't like to feel rushed and I did on this occasion, our food came out before we were done with our salads and that is a pet peeve of mine.
I've never had a bad meal here, and look forward to going back in the new location when it opens.

It couldn't be better!
We were celebrating out friends bday the day we ate at Flemings , she had requested a steak house for her day. She wanted nice and casual. We arrived at Flemings, host was amazing, very friendly, we had reservations for ten ppl, at the end we were 11, but that was not a problem for Flemings, they happily accommodated us. Food was amazing, steaks were cooked just perfect, juicy, right portions, wine list was very good...... Overall Flemings was beyond our expectations! We definetely will come back in the near future.
P.S. not recommended if you are in a budget
7/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was second to none. Nice atmosphere and kid friendly. We felt a little rushed by the service.

Fleming's Steak House Great
For the best steaks in the South Bay, I think Fleming's win easily. Sure, there are other steak houses, but you can't beat the taste of a Fleming's steak. And they provide excellent service, great appetizers and other dishes, small plates, and a fine selection of vegetable side dishes. It's everything you could want from a steak house. But they didn't have fresh oysters on the menu which I think would be a good addition to make everything perfect. We loved the bone-in ribeye and the fillet mignon, the crab cakes, the salad, the mushrooms were wonderful, and sauteed spinach was great. Overall, if you want a great steak for reasonable prices, Fleming's is the best.

Flemings is consistently terrific
Went to Fleming's Steakhouse for my wife's birthday. We didn't tell them, but one of the kids mentioned it. Our waiter picked up on it immediately, wished her a very sincere happy birthday, and we thought that was it. But during the dessert course, our waiter brought her a $25 gift certificate and a box of truffles, and wished her happy birthday again, then left us to enjoy our wine (no embarrassing fuss or excesses). The unsolicited kindness made her night.
The steaks were excellent, as always. But we were also impressed with the great sides, including the always excellent Fleming's potatoes -- a slightly spicy version of au gratain potatoes. Our salads were fresh, balanced and, frankly, beautiful.
Our many thanks to Fleming's!

This is the 2nd time we dined
This is the 2nd time we dined at this restaurant. Both times we were not disappointed. The prime rib dinner is juicy and cooked as ordered. The side dishes that came with it are delicious and good servings, more than enough for one person. I will definitely come back again.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a wonderful birthday
We had a wonderful birthday celebration - a great restaurant with fantastic service
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife, 15-year old daughter, and I enjoyed an excellent dinner here. Service was excellent, and the food was very impressive. We are from the East Coast and enjoy the occasional outings to Morton's, but I have to say this place was even better. Both of my girls liked it a lot more than Morton's, and the staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.
We ate in their existing location - the new site is due to open in a few months and should be even better I'm told, but I'd highly recommend this place for a great steak if in the area. Also, since we had spent several days beforehand in Napa and had quite a few bottles of wine with us, they charged us only a $25 corkage fee, which ended up saving us well over $150 on the dinner bill.

Fleming's Never Disappoints!
We often go to Fleming's for special occassions and it never disappoints. The food and service is always excellent. There is not one thing I could complain about. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for an excellent steak with incredible sides. You have to have the lobster mac & cheese. It is pricey but you get what you pay for. I wish I could go there more often!
7/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
We really enjoy dining at Flemings. The steaks are done exactly as orders, sides are generous portions, and desserts are divine! Wait staff is outstanding and attentive!
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fleming's For Steaks
Fleming's is a great steakhouse, maybe the best in the South Bay. They really have delicious steaks and just the right size. The calamari appetizer was exceptional and unique. The French Onion soup was delicious, but you've got to like cheese! We loved the salad. THe AtoZ pinot was excellent. And the cheese cake and turtle cake for desserts were delicious desserts. If I want a great steak dinner, Fleming's is at the top of the list.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Easy good dining
Shopping at Stanford Shopping Center can leave you wanting good food fast.
flemings offers a reliable place to take exhausted shoppers and out-of-towners.
The steak and appetizers and dessert all accomplished our goals.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for Steak lovers
We love this place! It has a clubby atmosphere. The food is excellent, mostly steak but a good variety also. Some unusual items. We loved the beet and tomato salad. We celebrated a birthday and they presented us with a great gift at the end of the meal. It is a place that is high on our list to return....
7/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Delicious Food, Excellent Service
We have been to Fleming's before in San Diego and fell in love with the menu and the ambiance. This time in Palo Alto everything was delicious except the swordfish that I order was fishy tasting. The manager, Sarah came by and was very accommodating and offered me other options and in the end credited our bill. I would have taken a replacement but we were running late for a concert.
I love the wine pairing menu, the salads, sides, and desserts are amazing. My bf had the Sunday Prime Rib special which was amazing for the price. We will be back!
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another Great Meal
My friends and I enjoyed yet another great meal and ambiance. The staff was most helpful and friendly. One of my favorite Steak houses in the Bay Area.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Night out with my 5 year old daughter. The service is always great but tonight was exceptional in terms of consideration for my daughter. The food is always excellent. The one thing I really wish they'd shift their strategy on is the pricing of their kids menu - $15 for a kids meal is crazy especially given the very small portions for even a child. Otherwise it's one of our favorite mommy-daughter date night spots.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
prime rib sundays!
great prime rib dinner special on Sundays including salad, entree and dessert! delicious prime rib
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
The manager came over and introduce herself. When she saw us taking photos, she offers to take one for us and presented it on a frame. Thank you Susanna! The Prime rib was delicious! The deserts were 5 stars.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been to Flemings several
We have been to Flemings several times and while the food is wonderful, the service this time was not as exceptional as we have had in the past. While we advised them of a special occasion and it was acknowledged verbally, that was it. In the past we received some candy, even a picture which was so special and totally unexpected. While we will return, this evening was just not the same.
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fleming's delightful prime rib
The Sunday prime rib special at Fleming's can't be beat! For $39.95, you get a choice of a wedge, Caesar, or house salad, a luscious cut of beef, a tasty side dish (big enough to share) and a choice of several amazing deserts! The baked brie appetizer is also a favorite!
8/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
Prime Rib Sunday!
We have dined many times at Fleming, but went last Sunday for the Prime Rib Special. We were not disappointed! Choice of 3 salads, one side and dessert are included plus the large slice of prime rib all for $29.95! Everything was delicious and cooked just as ordered. The wedge salad was one of the best I have had! And my husband had the house made carrot cake for dessert which he raved about. Once this restaurant reopens in it's new location at the mall, go get this meal!!
