I have enjoyed J. Fleming's since they opened. The food is very good and staff is friendly. Weekend entertainment was Jimmy Buffet music so upbeat sounds. They had some one quit just before dinner time so they were running a bit slow but all the staff were doing their best for a packed Saturday night house. I will continue to go there. Their grilled pork chop and chopped salad are both items to give a try.

Our waitstaff were great but seemed short staffed. Food was wonderful but portions for beef medallions and scallops were very small.

We enjoyed the live music and the meal at J.Flemings. It has been a great neighborhood place, and we make it a regular choice for casual, but very well-prepared, interesting meals.

The food was fine. The upscale entrees seem better than the sandwiches. The potato salad has a wierd taste that we thought was tarragon. It was a Saturday night and the music was good BUT WAY TOO LOUD!

All 8 members of our bridge group enjoyed our food and having a private room. The waitress was excellent. We will definitely return to J. Fleming's in Westmont.

I gave 4 stars because the prices charge for wine is greater than what is posted on the menu. They either need to update their menu or change their computer. The food was delicious. On Friday, the live music was awesome.

Went for a small family dinner early on Saturday night. There was a large birthday celebration at the next table which made for a happy atmosphere. Restaurant is laid back and enjoyable. Guitar player/singer added a nice touch.

My family and I drive towns over to go to J. Fleming’s restaurant. We have been going there for 10+ years! It is absolutely delicious!
Thanks for always taking care of us! From the Bolingbrook Majersky’s. 😊

On Valentine’s Day the restaurant was packed and a large and noisy group was dining. We visited this place the first time and were pleasantly surprised: food was delicious, great service, very pleasant and welcoming owner. He gave all ladies a nice rose for Valentine’s Day: it was very nice of him! We definitely will be back!
Thanks!!

Love this place! Great food, friendly staff, and good music on weekends.

The outdoor dining area is beautiful in the summer, but the indoor dining room is warm & cozy in the cold months.

We love J. Flemings. The menu items are always interesting and not pretentious.
The service is always friendly, and very accommodating of allergies and adjustments where necessary.
We enjoy the live music, and the neighborhood feel.
It is about the best value and experience in the western suburbs.

This restaurant is absolutely awful. My husband and I went there last week. Food isn’t good and the service is terrible. Upon our exit, the owner asked how everything was. I told him the service wasn’t good. We were disappointed. He couldn’t of cared less. He had an attitude like, Oh well!!

Don’t go here.

My friends and I did not have a good experience on Saturday, September 8, 2018. It has been a few years since I was at J. Flemings, and it is apparent that the food quality and service declined considerably.

I ordered filet medallions and they appeared to be cooked twice. Two very small medallions were provided for $25.00 and I would have been willing to pay more for better quality. I asked for medium rare and the edges of the meat were hard to chew and the middle wasn't even pink. The accompanying green beans were well prepared and seasoned.

A friend requested prime rib 'medium rare' and asked the server how the restaurant interpreted 'medium rare'. The server said 'our cooks know'. My friend then asked is medium rare 'bloody or something else' and the server replied 'yes'.

75% of those in my party agreed that the server didn't seem to know how to properly deliver new plates to, or take used plates away from, the table. He reached over patrons without saying 'excuse me' or 'I'm sorry'. There was plenty of floor space around the tables to walk around, which he did not. It appears he had poor to little proper food service/delivery training.

For an early Saturday evening, there were very few patrons in the restaurant. The owner stood at the bar not far from our table (I recognized him from online photos). He did not come over to our table to ask about our service or food.

The acoustic guitarist/singer played and sang very well.

I don't like talking poorly about a neighborhood restaurant and hope the owners and community development leaders take these comments seriously to improve the customer's experience.

We received very poor service on a Saturday night, and even though the food was decent, we will not go back. No one approached our table for 15 min after we were seated to bring us water or take a drink order. We had to chase our waiter down later in the evening to ask for more water and another round of drinks because he never stopped back at our table at all. And it wasn’t just our table that was receiving poor service. Several tables around us had the same problems we did and they had different servers. The crab cake appetizers were mostly bread crumbs- very little crab. The Cuban sandwich was delicious- a substantial amt of meat, onions, and sauce on grilled ciabatta bread. They had live music on the patio which was good.

The food was very good. My pork chop was perfect. The wine list is pretty good, too. And the live music was great!

A couple of negatives: Our plates came out at different times, making us wait for the remaining plate before eating. This seemed to happen at other tables, too.

And, like many restaurants, the server disappeared after dinner instead of bringing us a check.
