Had reservations for an early birthday dinner. The experience didn't start off too well as the hostess tried to seat us at a table with 2 chairs and a benchseat but in the middle of a row when 90% of the tables were empty. We then politely asked for a booth as we wanted to have a somewhat private celebration. The hostess then sat us at the front booth by the entrance, again not thinking about the situation. The rest of the dinner went well as the steaks, lobster and potatoes were all very tasty. The service was a bit slower than usual but the waitress was knowledgeable and attentive, especially when she had to report that the kitchen was out of sorbet. I will come back but learned that very specific request instructions are needed when making special reservations.

My only disappointment was not being able to order my favorite Scotch before my meal. How does a great restaurant like Flemings not have" McCallum 18" in stock??

Oh Well - Maybe next time

We left some food for a “doggie bag”. Waiter took the food, brought the check and came back for it, then never returned with our food. We were completely abandoned. Doubt we’ll return.

We came in on a very late reservation (9:45 pm) and they seated us and treated us very well even though our server surely wanted to be done with her evening. Great steaks and excellent appetizers and sides. Highly recommend the crab cakes.

Nothing special. Food was good, but service was way too slow. Waitress did not check back on us so we ended up waiting a long time to order, get food, get check, etc. It's the holiday season, and it was busy, so that could explain some of it.

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.
