Ordered medium rare, got medium well. I don't understand how a steak house can incorrectly cook a steak with so much environment control and repetition. Quality of beef is good. Service was really slow. Service is hit or miss generally. Friendly wait staff but not good enough for the prices being charged. Would go back because the food is good

Had a wonderful time celebrating both our birthdays. I had the petite filet mignon. It was done a bit more medium than I like it to be. But it was still good, melts in your mouth. Hubby had the Angus ribeye. Excellent! The lobster mash potato was superb. Asparagus was prepared just right, not over cooked. Sorbet was on the house. The service was spot on. Definitely a great celebration with plenty of good eats!

Food was excellent. Service was terrible. My wife and I arrived at 5:30 for our open table reservation. We were seated promptly. It was all down hill from there. We finished the standard menu dinner at 8:30. The wait between courses was unbelievably long. My complaint to the manager went nowhere. If this had been my first visit to Fleming’s, it would be my last.

A couple of friends and I went to Fleming's Palo Alto last Sunday for their brunch. I misunderstood and thought it was a buffet, but was mightily relieved it wasn't. I ordered their Sonoma pancakes which were excellent and came with a delicious pair of sausages, and a cup of coffee. Their version of a Mimosa is also delicious. I recommend this brunch, and am looking to go back!

The steaks were good but when you spend that much on a steak it should be great. Unfortunately I’ve had better and the mashed potatoes were only warm. But the service was great! And not just our server, all the staff were exceptional and made our anniversary a memorable evening.

We have been Fleming’s “Magnum” members for 10+ years and dined 1-2 day a week at Flemings flagship restaurant in Newport Beach in addition to hosting 7 Corporate Christmas parties. We move to Northern California and thought it would make a pleasant weekend to drive to Palo Alto and have dinner at Flemings.
We were greeted by a very nice & helpful young lady who seated us immediately upon entering the restaurant. Bread came out quickly, but it took a better part of 15 minutes for our server to come and take a drink order which took quite a long time to get to our table. Our server disappeared yet again while we waited to put in an appetizer order which wound to be a mistake because our appetizer took a minimum of 20 minutes to come to our table. We placed our orders at that timing fearing our server wouldn’t return.
Our entrees came out and thank goodness, they were excellent but yet again, our server was MIA. I actually got up to try and find him but he was no where to be found. By the time he returned, we were so tired of the poor service, I just asked for the check rather stay for dessert or after dinner drink. We just went elsewhere for that. Additionally, not one floor manager approached our table to ask how our meal had been, at which time I would have made my extreme disappointed know.
As long time diners at Flemings Steakhouse’s, and Magnum members, it extremely disappointing to receive this level of poor service.
If asked to recommend Flemings, I would make certain that the person I recommend ,make certain they don’t get the same server that waited on us.

We came on Sunday for their "Sunday Only" prime rib meal, they were out and it was only 7pm. And, they did not have the Rutherford Ranch wine. Then they were out of mushrooms, so we order the Brussels sprouts and they forgot to place the order.

The cost of the food was excessive, especially the beef. Fleming's is going to lose business with the price they are now charging for steak. The mark up on the wine was also excessive, although they had a very nice selection. A year ago when we were there for a birthday celebration, the waiter comp'd the dessert for the birthday woman. This time she was charged full price.

On the plus side, the French onion soup was excellent, and the chef did a great job with the mushroom and garlic side.

We will not be back until the cost of food is more in line with the other steak restaurants in the area.

Everything about our experience was excellent! We picked up our wedding bands and decided to have a nice meal afterwards. Our server started us off with some complementary champagne and we were so thrilled! It was such a nice touch. Our appetizer and meals were excellent. We both ordered the petite filet and they were cooked to perfection! The Fleming's potatoes cannot be skipped! Before we left our server gave us a box of truffles on the house and congratulated us again on our upcoming wedding! Our server and the manager went above and beyond to make our night extra special. We will definitely be back to celebrate an anniversary!

We went to F Palo Alto because we wanted a steak. First time we sat in the large room away from the bar. What a nice change. Less frenetic, quieter & a nicer venue than the bar & dining area in the middle of the restaurant. Steaks always good BUT my companion asked for MED-Plus and got a filet rarer than my MED-Rare order. Other than that, we appreciated the service & the F/U attention of the manager re the returned steak.

Lovely 60th Birthday surprise dinner with longtime friends last Friday night. Birthday card and group photo offered by the restaurant was a special touch. Steaks and salmon were amazing. Staff was friendly. Negative on the ambiance was a baby crying at the next table, which was surprising for a 7:30 reservation. I think it must be due to the location next to the mall. Overall, it’s very loud. Next time, I’d request a booth rather than being in the middle of the room.

The Unlucky Draw - My spouse and I tried to celebrate an anniversary by having dinner at this steakhouse. Unfortunately we were seated at the worst possible table. It was located right in front of the kitchen. A very LOUD and heavy traffic area we did not get any chance to peacefully enjoy our dinner. Our waiter asked me before our meal if I needed steak sauce which I took as either an attempt to poke fun at us or a warning that the filet mignon I was about to have is not good at all. Either way we were disappointed and will not recommend this place to our friends. I suggest they enclose their kitchen by adding noise abating doors and close off the glass wall surrounding the kitchen so our clothes would not reek of cooking when we leave. Convert those tables located in the center into booths to give more privacy. Otherwise just change your name to Outback Steakhouse so customers know what to expect.
