Had an amazing experience at this Fleming's location, it was our first time and had a great experience celebrating my husband's birthday. Service was attentive and food was great! We enjoyed our dinner date. We definitely plan on coming back.

Too much crust on tomahawk steak, too away from flavor of meat.
Fleming potatoes were more cheese then potatoes as well.

Food and service were very good. Steak was not trimmed enough. Ended up with a large pile of fat left over.

The food, service, and ambiance at Flemings are all outstanding! We had a Caesar salad, and creamed spinach which were both excellent, my girlfriend had the Main Fillet, which was perfect. I had the aged ribeye, which was very good, but not nearly as good as the filet. Obviously, it is an expensive evening when you dine at Fleming’s; however, the quality is worth the price.

We were there to celebrate a promotion. Food arrived an hour after placing the order. Our waitress didn’t check in at all. Steak was over cooked. The manager was nice enough to take it off our bill. We had higher expectations for an expensive steakhouse to cook the meat right. We tipped the waitress very high, 75% of our bill, to not feel like we got a free steak. It wasn’t for a free meal, we were there to celebrate and yet we felt that the service we received was lacking and the food was less than the price tag.

I made reservations via open table (from the Fleming's website link) and the options for seating indicated Standard or Outdoor. I selected Standard (as this implied would be indoor since the other option was to select Outdoor). The hostess said that she had no record of my selection and it didn't come through. I showed my email and she said that there was nothing she could do. Since, it was too late for me to make reservations anywhere else, we ended up staying and being in the walking path of people walking into the restaurant. The outdoor tent could have had the clear wall so as to keep the wind down (this would have also helped to direct the foot traffic of people walking in between Fleming's and Trulucks). The serving assistant never brought back a replacement knife for my husband when we showed that it wasn't clean. The one bright spot of our whole experience was our waiter, Chip, and the meal.

I made reservations for indoor dining, but they sat us outside. The reason people make reservations is to have a peace of mind on the table being ready. Not only did we not get seated inside, they placed us on the back corner where it was loud and dark. That really set the mode for the whole night. Eating an expensive steak outside where it was cold, dark, and loud next to the valet just made for a terrible dining experience.

The food was amazing and the service was great. The only thing that was a little bothersome was that they couldn’t seat us inside because it was at COVID capacity already and I understand that. The thing is was we already had a reservation. And we didn’t mind if they gave us the option to sit outside while waiting for an inside table to open later but they didn’t give us that option. Other than that the overall experience was great.

Food was great so was the outside dinning but our server was just so absent minded. Of course she suggested the most expensive wine on the menu then when we asked for the wine we had to ask three times just to get it. The steak was absolutely amazing but when you pay that much you expect top notch service

Understanding that things are just starting to open back up we are lowering our bar of acceptable dining. In this case the service was still slow and fragmented but not terrible by any stretch. Our server was clearly busy and other team members tried but there is still not quite enough staff to make it normal. The food was great! Quality and well prepared. All in our group were very pleased. This is one of our favorite places to celebrate and it was a double anniversary. The team provided us with chocolate truffels and a glass of champagne which was a very classy touch. All in all a very enjoyable evening

Our first dinner dining-in since early March of last year, & we were celebrating both our 37th Anniversary & both of us being fully vaccinated. We’d been looking forward to this for weeks & were excited to finally be dining inside. The ambiance was nice & we had the bar area to ourselves for the first hour, so it was nice & quiet. Both the hostess & our bartender wished us a Happy Anniversary, the drinks were good & most of the food was good. But my husband’s prime filet mignon was stringy, & no one ever stopped by to ask how our dinner was even though many walked by our table. We asked for boxes for all of our leftovers except his steak, & even then no one questioned us. When our table was being cleared my husband spoke up & let the server know the steak was not tender. The manager was called over & he apologized & said he would take it off of the bill. We then ordered espresso & cappuccino to go with dessert, our coffees came & our dessert showed up about 15 minutes later. The carrot cake was surprisingly dry & grainy in texture. When the bill came, the filet mignon had not been taken off so we had to inform our server. The manager came by again & apologized for not telling our server. What should have been a very wonderful, memorable anniversary dinner turned into a disappointing evening, especially for my husband. Our drinks, appetizer, salad, sides & my entree (Chilean Sea Bass) were wonderful. But a steakhouse, especially a high-end steakhouse, should never serve bad cuts of meat! That filet should have been so tender it would be like cutting through butter. This was our second visit to a Fleming’s Steakhouse & will most likely be our last.

Food and service were great. Disappointed that we were not seated indoors. Changed my reservation once San Diego was give the clear to seat indoors. My original reservation was at 5:15, changed to 7:45. Made this visit a little uncomfortable, overhead heater where we sat was not working.

Flemings La Jolla is always a special treat. The service and food is always on point. Traditional favorites for me are the seafood tower, petite filet and angel’s envy manhattans.
Yumm!

We had reservations but waited a few minutes before we were seated even though there were several empty tables for two in the front. We were seated all the way in the back of the restaurant which was very depressing. The servers were confused from beginning to end (2 wait staff took our orders, wrong appetizer was sent to our table, we asked for more bread and butter but never came, didn’t know who ordered what and there were just 2 of us, never asked if we wanted to order more cocktails when our glasses have been emptied, steaks were not good). Will not be back again!

We LOVE Flemings. It has been our go-to for special occasions for the last many years. Our dinner recently, though, was below average. The outdoor seating is not great (thank you COVID). Our steak and wedge were good, but our crab cakes were awful. They were bland, dry and fishy. Uck. We could not eat them. We paid our full bill plus a 25% tip—love our restaurant workers, but the meal was most disappointing.

The best part of the evening was getting out! The service was impeccable. My husband didn 't care for the mushrooms, the salad was great and the quality of the steak seems to have diminished from our previous visits. Our anniversary champagne and truffles were much appreciated.
