Called and made a reservation for 4pm on Valentine's Day , when we arrived we were told there was not one made, place was almost completely empty, told them not true! I got the feeling he was looking for a tip to seat us, guess he felt guilty and told us "we can fit you in" that ruined the whole... More

1st the good....salads and bread really good...it went downhill after that. Our waiter was snippy and had a real attitude...one person in my group asked about the side dishes and he pointed to the menu with a haughty little attitude. Ordered prime rib and I like the end cut because of the flavor and crunch. What I got was a... More

Really great atmosphere and service was outstanding! Our attire was dressy but dress casual is easily acceptable. In fact some people in the bar were casual enjoying Happy Hour. Now to the food. To start we were given bread with two types of delicious butter to go with our cocktails. The foo-foo drinks were really good. Clearly the bartender knew... More

Although I'm not a steak eater, Flemings almost made me a believer. My husband and I share a 14 ounce rib eye and it is amazing, beautifully marbled and perfectly cooked, juicy and delicious. For sides, heaps of mashed potatoes, crispy onion rings and crunchy Brussels sprouts. For desert, chocolate lava cake, very good but Roy's is better as cake... More

Small problem about the reservation but we sat outside so it was fine. Steak and Lamb were excellent. Loaded Potato was OK but far too Expensive as was the Spinnach. We enjoyed our meal and will be back. Service was very good.

Great steak house. I think I liked this place better than Ruth's Chris. Steaks were cooked perfectly. I had a filet and shrimp special that was awesome. The lobster and shrimp potatoes were decadent. We brought our own wine, $25 cork fee per bottle but worth it.

We went to Fleming's for a birthday dinner. The staff was aware of it and congratulated us. Fleming is a very traditional steak house with the wood paneling, glass doored wine cellar and also a big window into their kitchen. The steaks were a bit pricy but was very good. They also have some other dishes including a nice tempura... More

I have been there now 4 times and it was always a top notch experience. Service is always the best. I had both steak and fish entrees. Last time I tried beef short ribs and sides. Lobster mac is a must. Highly recommended....
