Dined outdoors on the patio which on which the tables were well spaced with very comfortable seating, a rare find at outdoor spaces. The t-bone and veal chop were excellent quality and prepared exactly as requested, as were the sides.

The one food downside was the ceaser salad. The lettuce was crisp, the croutons were excellent and the dressing was totally tasteless and had no aspects of a ceaser dressing. No steakhouse should consider this acceptable to serve

The service was excellent, attentive, but not intrusive, as it should be.

The ambiance took a step down rating because of the large TVs, with a game on, albeit at a very low volume, but that's a personal dislike of mine.

Definitely worth a visit.

The T bone steak was cooked perfect and it was like butter. And the garlic mash and creamed spinach was delish! I highly recommend flames if you're in the mood for a great steak..

Smoking section to close to the outside dining area
Food was very good but with the cost the experience should have been better

This is a special occasion place. Prices are high, meats and fish are great quality. All entrees do not have a vegetable or starch. All ala carte. Even though we were the largest group there, it can get noisy. Wait staff paced the meal nicely and there was no rush to leave.

The food and the service are excellent. However, it is very expensive. For a family of 4 with a very moderate priced bottle of wine the bill came to $500.

Love to go to Flames when I want a great steak! The staff is very attentive and the food is always consistent. After such a bad experience at Ben's, I am thrilled that I have a neighborhood steakhouse that is worth every penny.

We’ve been coming here for years, this was our first time back post corona virus and unfortunately it has really gone down hill. Food presentation was very lack luster, while the steaks were still delicious, the lobster tails were chewy and inedible and the sides were meh. Service was friendly but despite the place not being very busy, no one ever came over to ask how our food was. And the waiter didnt comment on the nearly full lobster tail sitting on the plate not eaten - no attention to detail and really zero attentiveness. Sad day...

Wanted to dine outside but our table was covered with tiny red ants. They graciously moved us indoors but sat us at a table that was so close to another table, that I literally could hold a conversation with the person sitting next to us. Food was good and served hot however once we got our food and needed something else it was very difficult to get service.

Overpriced and overrated.

The rack of lamb had no flavor and the creamed spinach badly needed salt but no condiments were on the table nor offered. The bread and rolls were good as was the chocolate mousse cake but the apple strudel crust was not crispy.

We won’t be back!

Amazing service staff is always on point .The food was delicious.
The steak for 2 was cooked to perfection, it was brought out on a sizzling plate and serviced to us on another warm plate.
Side were also excellent, drinks and dessert were also to die for..

Hostess was terrible. Loud Mother and son arguing at bar and at their table . Nothing was done about them. the food was good and the service other than the hostess was very good. Unfortunately, will not go back due to the way the reservation and the Mother and son were handled or really not handled.

Absolutely disappointed. I have never been to a restaurant where from the second you step in you’re being rushed out. The waiters sent the wrong food and also forgot our sides .. we thought it would’ve been a nice place for Sunday lunch and we walked out just extremely disappointed.

We were first sat near a nice window table but after a few minutes noticed ants crawling on the window ledge and on the table. We quickly notified the staff and were moved but, they did not even do anything about the ant issue; they simple left them and I know because our new table sat across from the old table. After looking at the menu the waiter came over and asked if we were ready to order. He did not offer his name or engage in anyway which did not sit well with me when at a very high priced restaurant. We ordered the crab cake app and it was good so I thought the night could be saved by the food. We ordered a caesar salad, sautéed broccoli arab, garlic mashed, and the porterhouse for 2. The steak was cooked well and hot but lacked any flavor. The caesar salad looked and tasted like it came out of the bag, the mashed were luke warm at best, and the sautéed broccoli arab came out steamed after the waiter specifically asked if we wanted it sautéed or steamed. Overall, our experience was extremely poor and I will not be going back. For a highly priced restaurant it is not worth the money. You can make your steak 100x better at home.

The appetizers were very small and WAY overpriced. The steaks were delicious but the sides were very underwhelming. All in all not enough value for the high price.
