It was outdoor COVID dining, so good food, odd scenery. Good thing about this location is it’s a block down from Gaslamp, so the chaos is largely contained down there.

The food was excellent though. The wait staff very professional and responsive.

Been to every steak house and Flemmings has the best cuts and best flavors in San Diego by far, my friends say the same.

I love Flemings as a chain. I've eaten at this location twice now...once before COVID and the new rules. I'm grading on a curve here because of the difficult environment that all restaurants in San Diego are now subjected to.

That said, there were several problems with my last visit, a family dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. We had a 7:45pm reservation, for which we arrived precisely on time. We were told the restaurant was running behind. OK with that, given the current reality. However, there was no option to allow us to be seated while we waited. There was a small spot at the bar where i was able to order a couple of $30 glasses of wine and a Diet Coke for our daughter. As I was delivering the DC to our kid, there was an other patron standing in front of my two wine glasses.. I politely told him he was standing in my spot. He got threatening and belligerent. The bar staff was of ZERO assistance. I asked for the manager to come over after the threat walked out the door to wait with his dinner party.

The manager did not offer to buy our drinks and was not very apologetic about the threatening, unresolved environment to which my family was subjected. Were the roles reversed, I would have at least done that...but no accommodation was offered.

We were seated shortly after. The service was solid, however the food arrived in a lukewarm state. For the price we paid, well over $300, I expect the food to be served piping hot. Had that happened, I would not be writing this tough review, despite the lack of decorum and control of the room before we were seated.

There are plenty of great restaurants in San Diego. They all need our support. I will think long and hard before making another reservation at this Fleming's location.

This was a birthday dinner, the experience was wonderful. We sat inside, I’m glad we did. If you are outside, the public walks between the outer and inner rows of tables, there are no privacy barricades. The food was excellent; we had the calamari appetizer which was very tasty (even if the calamari flavor was lost to the sauce), the filet mignon and ribeye steaks, and the sides of Fleming’s potatoes and creamed spinach. The steaks were tender and cooked to our order. The sides were flavorful. Dessert was the chocolate butter cake which was too rich for my taste, my husband loved it. The service was excellent, Carlos was very attentive without being intrusive. To me this is a restaurant to go to when you are celebrating a special event such as a birthday or anniversary.

The restaurant itself was awesome the food was really good the Alaskan king crab was very salty and fishy smelling and the dipping butter sauce had no flavor
The rest of the meals were amazing
Filet mignons and dry rub steak were spot on

Food and service were great as always. It is hard to say the ambiance was that good when you are eating outside with people walking down the sidewalk next to you. but in this time of pandemic safety protocols, the entire experience was very good. I will happily continue to return for great food.

Ordered the famous ribeye very tough and chewy and I don't write reviews.
I was on a first date so I didn't want to complain infront of her. The service was great!
Costco has much better steaks I'll cook myself next time.

We sat outside. Service was very good. We have been to several other Fleming's locations and had outstanding meals. Unfortunately, this location was not at the same level as the others we have been to. French onion soup was bland, the steaks were under seasoned and the creamed spinach was salty. We remain fans of Fleming's but with all of the competition in the San Diego Gaslamp District we will be trying other restaurants.

This place is great. The food is just about perfect (though costly--but you get what you pay for). The best thing of all was the service. The waiters knew not to check in too often, and but most importantly, this was some of the quickest service I've seen anywhere. I very much recommend Flemmings.

Wow!

This Flemings really has it dialed in!

We have been going to the Newport Beach location for 10+ years on a regular basis, but not so much recently, as the several new managements have led to a huge decline in food quality and preparation.

BUT THIS SAN DIEGO LOCATION IS AMAZING. Food was spot on. Preparation was phenomenal. Service was fast, concise, and not so ridiculously snobby as Newport Beach.

Incredible food quality, incredible preparation, very fast and accurate service, even with my huge list of special requests.

What else do you want!

Other restaurants should close for a week and spend that time watching this location to learn how they do it!

I was not sure what to expect with sidewalk dining but it was actually very nice. Lights in the trees and on awnings. Street noise on 4th was a bit loud but didn’t bother us too much. Dave K. is the BEST server!!!

Our King Crab was defrosted and reheated for table presentation. It was doggy and limpid. The drawn butter could not revive it.
