Jason our server is the best. We ask for him every time we go there. Danny who is one of the managers is great, as is the other manager, just can't remember his name right now. We always have a great meal!

We ordered the Prime Rib Tomahawk and the Pork Tomahawk, a couple of sides, salad and dessert. Both meat were very good. I am just concerned that the server asked how my son wanted the pork cooked. Has the way pork and chicken changed? Wasn’t it always the case that these two kinds of meat must be well done?

We reserved a booth, but was told (very apologetically) that the guests at the booths were taking longer than they are supposed to. Frankly, I think they either forgot or they just did not bother to reserve a booth for our party. It was not a very big issue; it turned out the corner table, where we were seated, was actually very nice. That is until two diners showed up who were pretty loud and kept ordering drinks. This, of course, was not the restaurant’s fault. But I guess their voices are not very far off, volume-wise, from the waiter’s; he was overly gregarious.

Anyway, my husband enjoyed our dinner, so Fleming’s warrants a good review.

Everything was good! Hector, our server, was great. We ordered the prime dry-aged ribeye (medium) and it was perfectly delicious! We are definitely coming back.

Our son takes to Fleming's instead of a Christmas gift.
We love it because we love Fleming's and we get to spend more time with our son.

We love Flemings, come consistantly to celebrate special occasions for our family. Tonight things were very off. Lighting was broken, so restaurant was really bright and uncomfortable, waiter confirmed lighting issues. Waited over 45 mins for main course. No extra service to clear bread and clean table, 100% usual occurence. Had to request table to be cleared. Waiter missing for 20 minutes dealing with another unhappy table of guests. Manager did not come by to say thank us for dining, again customary for Flemings. Really sad for unacknowledged mishaps and very $$$$ gathering.

Service was subpar, steak was “gristley” for a Ribeye.

didn't know from the menu if any sides were included with the entree. Sides were small for the price. Hector was great. We'd go back

We arrived early for an early dinner during restaurant week.
#1
Special day.
Wine flights.
Three special menus.
Great food.

#2
Table near front door and hosting station.
Hostess and host or employees don't need to share fun and stories of adventures with observing customers.
Employee conversations should be restaurant related or professional or on your break.
I don't care about their next date/party.

#3
Restaurant week menu had good choices.
Better, might be $ 5 or 10 off wider selection . Options allow more interest of returns.
Sunday special is great.
We'll be back for more.
Also tomahawk Tuesday option for restaurant week?

Good contact by manager.
Wait staff very nice.
Ensure melt butter comes out with every lobster. Every time.

Enjoyed the food.
Parking is a real challenge.

My husband & I were here celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary & were treated so well. There was an anniversary card on the table when we arrived, signed by the staff. Shortly after ordering along came two complimentary glasses of champagne to celebrate. Our serving team was so attentive but not annoyingly so. The food! OMGosh the food was amazing. My husband had the dry aged steak & said it's the best steak he's ever had. He wanted it just under med rare so the server suggested rare plus...AMAZINGLY perfectly cooked. The same with my petite fillet, which was oscar style & perfect! Everything from the champagne buttered bread throughout dinner & rounded out with their creme brulee was absolutely wonderful. I can't forget to give mad props to the lobster bisque as well. I'll stop by just for that! Can't wait to go back! Thank you to all the staff who made this a beautiful evening. Doreen

The location was good for being downtown. The food was good steak was exactly how I requested it. The only issue I had was the bread was cold and the butter I did not care for.

Fleming’s cumple con la promesa de un auténtico steak house. El servicio de Charles fue excepcional y la comida especialmente la carne estuvo cocida a la perfección. Tienen que ordenar las papas Flemings y una lista de Vinos muy bien puesta

My son ordered the halibut and it wasn’t ready when everyone else’s food was so they brought him a shrimp cocktail in the meantime. They ended up taking off the shrimp and halibut. Great customer service. Great food.

If you are looking for a special night out, I could definitely recommend Fleming's We were celebrating our anniversary and the entire staff went out of their way to make it a special evening for us. It started with a complimentary champagne toast and ended with truffles to take home. In between, the food was delicious and the service by Jennifer, outstanding.

The food was great, ordered tons of appetizer and had the steak. It was the bone in ribeye and was cooked to perfection. Ordered a blueberry lemon drop and we had 3 bottles of red wine and for dessert had the chocolate lava cake and it was delicious. The service was great, definitely will add this restaurant on my favorite list.

Restaurant is very cold, very noisy, very frenetic. Had to ask twice for heat--people were wearing outside coats/jackets. Despite the quality of the food, it was far too expensive to justify the experience of sitting in your coat indoors to eat dinner.

Went here for Thanksgiving while only town with my husband and toddler. They offered an amazing pre fixe menu for both adult and child for the holiday. The quality of food and attentiveness of staff ensured a very positive experience. It’s not an ideal restaurant (both ambience and food) for children but they catered very well with families all over the place. It was busy and ran behind on reservation time, but they made sure to accommodate by taking coats, a(very small) waiting area and even offered a simple charcuterie sample. They do offer valet as street parking is hit or miss. Would love to return one day.
