We have enjoyed Fleming’s on several occasions . The staff has always been courteous and extremely helpful in selections of pairings wines to our fabulous meals. A Des Moines must!

I had to spit gristle into my napkin which when eating a 62.00 steak isn’t ideal. My salad was made wrong and when returned to me correctly was pretty skimpy and seemed hurried in preparation. But service was good and company was great. So still had a nice time but we are going to cancel our reservation for xmas eve and go somewhere else.

Everything was great about the place and food except the price was a bit high. I understand some of it reflected with how it is prepared and the atmosphere, location etc...still it was a bit high. Other than that we had a great time and the food was fantastic.

The role of assigning tables in a restaurant should go to someone with a high degree of social intuition and social intelligence no matter what their age or I.Q. The table assignment can sometimes make or break an evening.....and across my life, it has been win some, lose some. At Flemings-Des Moines on November 24, it was lose some. Following a request on Open Table for a quiet, out of the main thoroughfare table to celebrate a birthday, my party of four was shown to a booth. All booths in the part of the main dining room where we were lead held two people seated at each....except for one large booth for six which held two diners at that moment. I declined the booth as it appeared small for four adults. Our next assignment was what I could call the "Times Square" location....at the juncture of the kitchen, pathway for all servers and next to a boisterous and increasingly intoxicated party of eight. Having already caused my party to walk around the restaurant twice, we sat down. Big mistake. We had to speak loudly to one another and tolerate the noise of the neighboring party that was fit for a bar but not a nice dinner. I left the table to speak to the host, and she told me that another table might open soon......there were several empty tables available throughout the evening. All table servers were polite and efficient, and the steaks were well prepared. However, in the end, the negligence of the host or manager (if there was one on the premises) to try to upgrade or amend what was a miserable dining experience reflected a restaurant whose culture relied on an empty formula. Was anyone really invested in this diner's experience? Who would think that the table to which we were assigned even approximated the request? When customers become loud and negatively impact neighboring diners, who has the authority to adjust a bill? Give a coupon? Move people around? Take ownership for reviews like this?

My sin and I were alone for Thanksgiving Dinner and decided not to cook for the two of us. We chose Flemings, because we enjoy their regular menu. We chose a dinner time reservation of 5:45 PM, which we thought was not too late. We were promptly seated and appreciated that. Immediately after we were seated, our server took our drink order; My 12-year old son asked for a sparkling water, which we did not get for a long time, once I reminded our server. Although the time of our dinner reservation was still early, the restaurant had already run out of one sweet potatoes, a staple of thanksgiving dinner, and replaced them with creamed spinach. Furthermore, when desert time came, my 12 year old son asked if he could have milk with his desert, only to be told many minutes later (he was half way finished with his desert) that they had run out of milk too! I could not believe it. We liked our food, but were unimpressed with the lack of planning and perhaps inexperience with holiday meal service.

Our server, Winston was awesome! He was friendly and very appropriately attentive. Our Thanksgiving meals were perfectly prepared and delicious. The bread was delicious and was served with a pumpkin butter as well as a flavored one. Just a very nice meal in a beautiful restaurant.
Thank you, Winston for enhancing our experience.

We were dining to celebrate a birthday, and I made note of it in the reservation. The staff at Fleming's were incredible in making the occasion extra special! The hostess greeted us with happy birthday, and the table was set with a birthday card signed from the staff. Our waiter, Matthew was excellent. The food was excellent. The lava cake we ordered for dessert even came with "Happy Birthday" written on the platter. It was an incredible experience, and the way the staff went all out to make it special was so very appreciated!

Great steaks, excellent sides and desserts. Fantastic service. Ambience needs a little tweeking-music is a little loud for a quiet meal with friends. You get what you pay for. This isn't McDonald's.

as in all Flemings, they are white wine snobs, and the selection is poor
you will never say lets go to Flemings because of the deserts
I also don't want to be handed a computer when Im fine dining, maybe we are old fashion, but we leave our cell phones In the car

My wife and I have truly enjoyed Flemings and our meals tonight were again very good. My wife's brother joined us for dinner and we requested a quiet area to talk. Unfortunately, the table were were seated at was not as quiet as we had hoped. Nevertheless, the meal and the service was outstanding.

Our server Bradly was great. Friendly and just professional enough. Happy hour was disappointing. I didn't get any discount on Glenlivet 12 and had asked for a happy hour scotch? Bill at table showed Glenfiddich, I watched bartender pour
Glenlivet? Bar staff seemed too busy at other end of the bar.

Service was horrible, waited twenty minutes for a glass of water. It never came we left and went to 801 chophouse. Complete waste of time, don't care if the food is good, bad, or in between if the service is bad the experience is bad. Will never return and I will steer everyone clear. I only gave it one star because I didn't have the choice to give it none.
