Steak
Flames Bar and Grill founded in 1992 as the premier American Steakhouse in New York 's Westchester County , has been lauded by local and national critics as the benchmark for American Cuisine. John Mariani of Wine Spectator wrote, “Easily the best, beefiest, most richly flavored sirloin I've had this past year was at Flames Steakhouse.” This graceful, timeless, classic American Restaurant defines the steakhouse genre, with its adherence to only purchasing the finest products available at the daily markets. Hand selected prime beef, veal and lamb, hard shelled lobsters from 2 – 10 pounds, colossal lump crabmeat and fish are delivered daily to the restaurant.

Ordered 2 Rib Steaks Medium Rare. Steaks arrived raw. I always order medium rare, but have never received a steak so undercooked as these were.

Back room had a large company crowd that were extremely loud. Yelling, Cheering as if in a banquet hall!

Had better Oysters Rockefeller elsewhere.

For the price, was extremely disappointed!

The food at Flames is always top-notch, and enjoying it in their lovely outdoor space made it all the more delicious.

Went for Father’s Day. I was surprised it was a price fixe menu, $100 pp but remembered it was a special “holiday”, so should have asked. Food is always incredible. Service was good, a little scattered but considering they probably just opened again bc of covid I understand. Was happy to see people enjoying and we will be back.

One of the best steak restaurants I have been too - Joey and the team were fantastic hosts to my wife and I. The scalllop risotto (we were given a little) and the broiled Sea bass was melt in your mouth type stuff. The steal, charred from the outside but medium was again moist and didn’t taken any effort - we will be back again - great recommendation from my friend Jason and glad we went.

Staff made us feel at home as soon as we walked through the door. My steak was cooked perfectly and the quality of meat was impeccable. Appetizers and desserts were great. Service was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed our food. Best steakhouse in Westchester. We will be back soon.

Way over priced service was poor.$400.00 for my wife and I for that it should of been 5 stares across the board no question.I asked for a romantic table because it was our anniversary and was put in a row of 2 party tables 2 feet away from each other you couldn’t possible talk low enough for a private conversation.Will NOT be eating there again.

Service was not great at all spent most of the time waiting to order or simply asking for utensils. They were way understaffed. I understand it was Valentine's day but they should have been better prepared. My wife and kids both had the filet mignon the wife's did not taste right at all and the water also had this moldy taste. $441 not including tip I expected top service and food, both were lacking. Will not be back.

Prices are extremely high and out of wack for Westchester. Service was inattentive. Many items that we order had to be re-selected because the item was”out of stock”.
My steak was good but not comparable to other steakhouses such as Peter Luger’s, Ruth Chris or evening Benjamin’s
All in all very disappointing and outrageously priced.

Had dinner there February 2020 with a group. Great service and a nice atmosphere. We ordered a seafood platter, steak for 4, brussels and mash , and desserts.
Seafood platter was ok not great but poor presentation
Steaks were plentiful cooked perfect but were somewhat chewy
Sides were plain no flavor
Desserts were poor, cheesecake, chocolate cake, streusel, tiramisu all not great

Not what we expected for $650!!!
They could do better with presentation and flavors on all aspects of food.

The menu prices were much more than Open Table rated. The name "Flames Bar and Grill" would not lead me to believe it was so formal. Food was a little pricey for the serving size. Waiters very welcoming!

Flames provides a genuine experience like no other. The owners & staff make you feel at home with their amazing hospitality. Anything that you order on the menu will be perfectly prepared and will never disappoint. Excellent quality and the pricing is great for such a high quality steakhouse. After dining at Flames, I have yet to find a steakhouse like this anywhere in NY. Outstanding overall experience.

The first unpleasant surprise came when the a dozen of ordered oysters arrived. They looked dry, which led us to take a sniff first instead of just popping them into the mouth immediately. Yep, they smelled. Though we were reassured that the oysters were fresh, our noses knew better. The order was returned and we were not charged.

Second, was the beet salad. Though the beets were supposed to be the star ingredient, they were too-too overdone, like they came from a can instead of being freshly prepared.

The side order of Brussels sprouts was no better.
Instead of being green in color, they were devoid of any color, cooked to death. Too soft and listless.

And finally the T-bone steak. Though properly cooked to medium rare, the meat was very fibrous, kind of un-chewy.
All in all, sorry to say, it was an unsatisfying dinner experience.

I have been dining at Flames Bar and Grill for several years since the new owners took over. Joey is consistently the most gracious host, and John the Matre'd is the consummate professional who exceeds in overall service and hospitality. I often dine in NYC Steakhouses. Flames Bar and Grill surpasses all, with their quality dry aged meat, service and hospitality. I judge a restaurant not only by their food and service but how I have feel when I leave. Joey, John and their entire Flames Team never fail in making me, my family and friends feel very special!!

Out of all of the Westchester Co restaurants I could have chosen to celebrate my birthday, I absolutely wanted to spend it at Flames Bar and Grill. From the warm greeting at the door through our amazing dinner then to the staff singing Happy Birthday along with Tiramisu, I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful evening.

Have gone here for years. Seems to have been a big drop in quality.
Ordered a hearts of lettuce salad, a steakhouse staple. It was one head of lettuce cut in half. Period. No bacon, no tomatoes, no onions. When I asked they brought me bacon. Said they only include it if you ask. And this for $13.
The steak was quite good. However, we asked them if they slice the steak or leave the meat on the bone. They said that they leave the meat on the bone. When we got the steaks, the meat was cut off the bone.
And we ordered creamed spinach. It was tasteless and we didn’t eat it. They asked us if we wanted to take it home and we said no and they never asked us if it was ok.
A shame. We have taken one of our long favorite steakhouses off of our list.

The food was great; however, the cost is outrageous. Although I was aware that the cost was high, it was much higher than the last time I was there (over 10 years ago). I probably will not be eating at Flames again in the near future...it's a big hit to the pocket book.
