So when I booked on open table about 1 hr prior to the dinner, everything seemed to be fine. But when we got there, they told us there was no table for us. So we had to wait for 1 hr before got seated. Although they gave us some free drink and desert , waiting for an hour standing at the entrance is no fun at all. They had to fix their booking system!!!

The Palo Alto location is our favorite. Last month bday dinner for my husband. This month, mine. We requested Steve (our server last month) and the restaurant easily accommodated our party of 7. We were not disappointed. The food always great. Steve provided 5 star service. Thank you Steve and Fleming's for a very nice bday dinner!

Christina, our server, was excellent. The crab cakes were delicious. The salmon cobb salad was wonderful too. Too bad there were not more people in the restaurant for the Saturday brunch. We felt bad for the restaurant & the employees that it was not busier. Do they need to advertise their brunch so more people can enjoy it? We certainly will tell everyone we know how great it was!!!

We went for the sunday special price fix consisting of salad, fillet over mashed potatoes and desert. The Caesar salad was good, especially the crispy prochuto that added a salty note and texture. I prefer my Caesar dressing to be more garlicy, this was mild. I was somewhat disappointed that the fillet was actually tenderloin tips, (this was not clear from the menu) rather than the petite fillet and my medium was med well my wife’s medium rare was medium, but the meat was tender and well trimmed. The mash was excellent. We both had the creme brûlée which needed more vanilla but with the fresh fruit and chantilly creme was a good end to the meal. Fleming’s is a good second tier steakhouse on the level of Ruth Chris but not up to Morton’s or Gibson’s (Chicago).

We went to Fleming‘s steakhouse with another couple to celebrate my husband‘s birthday. The waiter forgot to bring a martini and butter for the bread. A rare steak was delivered raw. Coffee came cold. Decaf coffee came late. Service was uneven. They forgot to present the “special birthday gift “of chocolates.

I have dined at this location at least -10 times all exceptional. On Sunday I invited two guests to celebrate a birthday although the server was pleasant it took 10 minutes to get our drink orders. /0 minutes to receive our apps. The table was not cleared prior to our entrees arriving which resulted in one of the guests touching the hot steak plate(no injury and the manager checked in with us). I had to flag down the server to order another drink. Not the expertise wanted my guests or myself to have. The food was not prepared as exceptional as before. I am disappointed for the amount of money I spent I will try one more time hopefully this was an off night.

Treated my husband to a nice dinner for his 53rd birthday. Steve was our waiter and provided service beyond 5 stars. We've eaten at Fleming's on several occasions, both Palo Alto and Santa Clara locations. The service provided by Steve was the best to date. Management stopped by our table three times to briefly chat and check in on us. Food amazing as always. I need to add there was a birthday card on our table, addressed to my husband, when we arrived hand signed by several members of the staff. Two hours later, on our way out the door, one of the hostesses extended birthday wishes to my husband. You're made to feel special from the minute you walk in the door to the minute you leave. We've eaten at many of the finest steakhouses in the Bay Area. Fleming's is on the top of our list!

I've been to this place 8 years ago and decided that I will never come back there again. I reserved this place last Saturday only b/c everything else in Palo Alto was fully booked. No regrets! Outstanding service! Everything changed for the better. Will definitely come back there again. Thank you!

My date and I decided to dine at this restaurant. This is our second time in Palo Alto location and third time with Fleming. We got a horrible service from a server. We ordered $200+ bottle of wine, a server insisted we must take the two wine glass that were wet, and not cleaned & cleared. We asked for a replacement, she said no word but look unpleasant to change another glasses that she supposed to do without our request. Since, til our food ... service went down hill.
What bother us was, put bill was $500+ we think we deserve a better service than that. Especially I was with my date!!!! Very disappointed.

We LOVE Fleming's. It's our go to for special occasions, and it never disappoints. MUST HAVES: onion rings, creamed spinach & the mashed potatoes. HIDDEN GEM: Not in the mood for steak? Order the Fleming's burger -- it's delicious.

Service is outstanding. Food is excellent, with a pretty good selection of menu items too. Not just all steaks. Everything is cooked to perfection and the deserts are fantastic as well. Decent wine list with some quality mid range reds. My only ding is the food is a bit salty, especially their house steak rub, mashed potatoes, and creamed spinach. Next time we’ll just ask for no added salt. The crab cakes are to die for.

Do not order fish here. I had the halibut and it was the most bland, tasteless dish ever. I tried adding salt, but that didn't help. My husband had the lobster tails and he was satisfied with the preparation. However, they took back the halibut and brought me the BBQ salmon entree, which was good, but it took way to long to get it. As a comp they gave my husband another lobster dish so I didn't have to eat alone, but the ambience was already ruined. We left the restaurant very unsatisfied.

The service and food was impeccable. We were not rushed to finish our meal. The food was brought to our table hot. Our server was professional and made sure that everything was fine. I would definitely dine there again for any occasion. We do plan on trying the brunch that is offered on the weekends.

The only complaint I have is that there was a party of 8 or more sitting next to us with children and one of them was screaming. The parents did nothing to control the child and it was a little annoying.

This venue is in Stanford Shopping Center's east parking lot. It is loud, the food is overpriced and the wine list is limited and way out of line price wise-very poor value. We had a very long wait for our food. When it arrived, the tomahawk pork I had was dry and only moderately flavorful. My wife's halibut was not even moderately flavorful-it was bland. Overall a disappointing evening.

I would like to thank the Chef and the staff for making my parent's 60th Wedding Anniversary unforgettable. The food was amazing and my father is still talking about how yummy the crab cakes mashed potatoes were. Our host was amazing and we thank her for the complimentary cheesecake, which we all shared delightfully. Thank you again for making this day more than remarkable. Cheers, Denise
