Flames Bar and Grill Ratings and Reviews
Cons: Mandatory valet parking. Tomato and mozzarella salad (our mistake to order tomato in February, restaurant's mistake to even have it on the menu at this time of year). Rack of lamb was totally uninspiring. I've had much better racks of lamb at many restaurants for half the price ($55.00??). For that price I expected better. And the steamed spinach, onion rings, calamari all bland.
Pros: roasted beet salad.
The calamari is some of the best I've ever had. I had the steak for 2 and mushrooms and salad as a side. Everything was delicious and the steak was superb. The service was impeccable. The only reason a 5 star rating was not given is that Flames is slightly on the pricey side.
Everything we ordered was prepared perfectly. From our drinks to our appetizers, we could not have been any happier, until our steaks arrived also cooked to perfection. The service was outstanding with all our expectations exceeded. I would definitely recommend Flames! Can't wait to go back.
We've dined here several times and unfortunately on this occasion, they missed the mark. Maybe they were short staffed on the night we went. Usually they can't seem to do enough for you. My husband asked for a glass of ice, and he never got it. We waited a while for dishes to be cleared and dessert to be offered.
We have tried many steakhouses but had never been to Flames before...had heard not-great things about the previous ownership - but I have to say "everything was truly sensational" - from the friendly greeting and thoughtful seating to the warm, engaging and knowledgeable waiter to the amazing & delicious food, everything - honestly - was perfect. I have never had a steak that memorable and I can't wait to go back!
The food is overpriced. I ordered a Filet Mignon med- well and it came out rare, had to send it back and my husband ordered the shell steak med and it came out barely cooked so it went back. The baked potato was luke warm. Just felt for the high prices they could have done a better job with cooking the food. Overall don't think we will be going back.
My friends and I were going out and decide to try someplace new to all of us. We made an excellent choice by coming to Flames. We were not disappointed. The bar tender was excellent, as was the waiters and the food.
We will definitely come back again to celebrate a special occasion or just a special day.
The food was good, but this restaurant is mis-represented on Open Table. It is very expensive and it is marked as $$ under $30. We had one entry and one side of vegetables each with no drinks and it cost $80. I was looking for a casual place to go with a friend on a weeknight.
I would not go back.
Service was excellent. Food was tasty and portion sizes were good. Wasn't expecting bill to be as high as it was, it should really be three or four $$$$ on the app not two. Sixteen dollars for a glass of merlot and twenty for a kids butter pasta jumped out at me on the bill as a bit expensive for what it was. I might return for a date night with my wife.
We went for my dads birthday. We had a great experience. Excellent steak and sides. We had the steak for 3 for the four of us and it was more than enough food. We started with shrimp cocktail and lump meat crab as well as the wedge and bacon.Everything was as good as any high end steak house in the city.
A classic NY style steak house, in a quaint tavern setting, in central northern westchester. Top notch food, versatile menu, great bar scene, and wait staff eager to please and very attentive. Expensive but certainly in line with comparable houses of meat. For those who like steak and the manly setting of a classic steak house, Flames will nit disappoint.
This is our first time back in 3 years and I found it disappointing. Food was only OK. I had to send my steak back. I ordered medium rare and it came out well. The lobster tail was over cooked. Vegetable side dishes were soggy and loaded in oil. The place was not that busy but the service was very inattentive, except the lovely waiter who showed us dessert tray. We had no drinks, just water. Not worth the 323 dollar bill in any way. Skip it.
This place was phenomenal. My boyfriend just brought me here on a date...and I LOVED it. It was so romantic. The waiterstaff were super knowledgeable about the food and wine pairings, and even gave us an extra dessert at the end when we couldn't decide between too.
I am DEFINITELY coming back here again!
Traditional steakhouse with some Italian touch. This is a traditional steakhouse which offers a solid Porterhouse. The steak was excellent.
The salads are traditional and basic. Their fried calamari looked like the ones in Spain or Italy "alla Romana", not often seen prepared like this in the US, with large calamari rings rather than the most frequent smaller ones. The coating was perfect.
Service was as expected for a formal restaurant, very professional. Ambience was very quiet, with few tables remaining when we got there, but it was 8pm on a Sunday night in Westchester, kind of expected.
As usual, the devil is in the details. We had a girl in our party ask for a pasta dish, only pasta and a little butter. That was charged as a wholly prepared pasta dish +$20. Hmmm. Most expensive boiled pasta ever. I cannot understand formal, traditional restaurants that (a) do not have a kids' menu (do they understand that these days flexibility gets you very far in the food industry?), which can be for some families a decision making point about going vs not, that bad, and (b) even without a kids' menu, they charge you a full dish for something like boiled pasta. Just does not make sense and you feel taken advantage of.
The taste left with the client is a bit sour, when it should have been an opportunity to acquire a customer forever. All for maybe $10? Food for thought.
All in, a solid steakhouse experience in Westchester county.
