“Over priced and mostly dissapointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Went there earlier this week with my wife and two kids. The service was very good, however, the glass of wine was a small pour and two out of 4 steaks very vastly undercooked. One they got right on the second try...my ribeye had to go back twice...the problem was they heated it on the plate and it kept cooking once they returned it to me...then it was over cooked...dry and tough and very dissapointing. To their credit, they took it off the bill, but i would have rather paid for it and had the delicious steak was thinking about all day.

“Utterly Disappointed… Speechless”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

My spouse and I met two other couples at Flemings in Montrose/Akron Ohio a couple weekends ago. The one couple raved about the steaks and said they topped any other restaurant he had been too. We were very excited to try this place out. We decided to go about an hour early to have a quick drink and relax before we had dinner. Entering the restaurant we were delighted with the atmosphere and bar area. The bar was crowded so we went to the end of the bar and requested a beverage and figured we would just stand around and wait for a seat to open. After a 20 min wait we were seated at the bar but within seconds of sitting down the bartender rudely stated that there was another couple ahead of us waiting on those seats. We politely let him know that we waited, had drinks in our hands and the other couple just arrived. He indicated there was a list you had to put your name on to be seated at the bar. Now mind you the bartender served us, knew we had no seats to begin with and never mentioned a list. When I asked to see the couples name on the list he said never mind and walked off. Well two seats opened up next to us and evidentially there was no list because someone else took the seats and the younger couple still stood. Hmm. After a short while our friends arrived and we were seated at our table. We promptly ordered our food and proceeded to wait over an hour to be served, when questioning the waitress she said she would check on our meals. A few moments later our meals arrived and three out of six meals were just horrible, 3 burnt filets for us…. I mean dried out burned $40 steaks… not the prime steak I was wanting and the green beans were just hard and tasteless. I did not say much until the others did, which at that point I started getting frustrated as $40 for a piece of burnt meat was just not right. So the manager came over said they would cook 3 new steaks and would comp our three meals. Good… all taken care of… but then… 45 min later…. new steaks arrived. My filet was now butterflied burnt and resembled leather(I ordered my steak to be cooked medium)… the other girls steak was rare as rare can get… like NOT COOKED…. mind you she ordered her steak to be prepared medium. The other gentleman his meal came out and his steak was halfway cooked. The waitress told us there was a problem that night and all her tables had issues with their food. Whew… just not us LOL… anyway the manager came over comp all meals and gave each couple a $75 gift certificate. If anything came out of this 2.5 hour meal that ended up with us leaving a well-known expensive restaurant hungry was the customer service we received from the Manager. His name was Barry. He was very polite, apologetic and a little overbearing. He even chased us down in the parking lot to apologize again, but knows the meaning of customer service. I now have a gift certificate to return and try this restaurant again, not that $75 will cover two meals. Not sure if it's worth the return, but if I do I hope to give this review a 4 star at least.

“Just Simply Awesome!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I took my husband here last nite to celebrate his birthday. They knocked my socks off literally from the time we parked to car until we left! Excellent customer service is over the top here! Every single employee of this restaurant made sure that our every need was taken care of. That's just the beginning. The food was excellent, well prepared and artfully presented. I was particularly impressed with their use of new technology by presenting us with an Ipad digital wine list to browse. Overall, we had an excellent meal and a lovely birthday dinner. I will definitely return here, even if just for appetizers and drinks. Yes...it is expensive, but worth every bit. After many disappointments at restaurants in Akron, I have finally found one that meets all my expectations, and then some.
