Absolutely disappointing, atmosphere was great when we arrived and got us excited about the food. After looking at the menu I figured for the price this has to be good. I was disappointed with the food, steak was prepared properly but lack good flavor and had a bad after taste. Best part of the meal was the bread and potatoes. The server was great and I tipped him based on his service and not the food. Management could've cared less about my complaint or with us ever coming back. I would not waste your time or money with this place

Flemings never disappoints with their fabulous service and food and the one in Des Moines is just another example. Great service, perfect steaks and the attention to detail is over the top. The staff and management in Des Moines, like our Flemings in Omaha, make you feel like you are special. Thanks for a great birthday celebration this week!

We had a group of 7. Our table was in its own dining area which made it easy for us to chat, relax, and enjoy the evening. Our waiter, Brandon, was attentive and had an excellent knowledge of the wine selections and menu. The meal was wonderful and we’ll definitely be going back soon.

Fabulous food and wonderful service every time. Their appetizers are yummy, our favorite is the calamari. Their steaks are perfectly cooked and their side dishes are plentiful. Now, their wine bottles are overly priced. Winston was our server and did an excellent job.

Fleming’s is a favorite for the kids. The kitchen goes out of their way to keep everyone happy. Get a wedge salad, dry aged Ribeye, and the Lobster Mac. If you still have room, splurge for desert. They are all delicious.

First time at the West Des Moines Flemming’s; love the branch in Birmingham, MI.

Beautiful restaurant with great open floor plan! Food was very good and service was marvelous. Only glitch is paying over $525 for four, (includes my tip,) with a $70 bottle of Rodney Strong Cabernet and only One dessert.

They brought me someone else’s steak. I had to wait for them to cook another. It was outstanding when I got it but it really threw off the flow of the meal. We asked for the ice cream part of our lava cook to be brought to the table to eat and for the rest to be boxed up to go. Everything was boxed to go.

Food was outstanding.

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.

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!

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
