When I'm in the Phoenix area for business, I always look forward to dinner at Fleming's in Chandler, Arizona. I truly enjoyed my most recent visit - the food, service and atmosphere were outstanding.
It's expensive - $340 for 3 people including the tip - but it's well worth the price.
The service is exceptional - among the best of any restaurant. The wait staff is professional, knowledgeable and attentive. They pour a good drink ($9.50 for a Bombay Sapphire and Tonic) and have an extensive wine list. We had a $48 dollar bottle of very good (but not extraordinary) wine (Conundrum) with dinner.
We shared the sweet chile calamari for an appetizer and it was perfectly prepared and delicious. The portion sizes are all very generous and there was more than enough to share 3-ways.
My dinner companions both had that evening's special - a 6 ounce filet with 3 large scallops wrapped in bacon. Cooked perfectly, very tender and lightly seasoned. I tried the peppercorn NY Strip - outstanding! We shared two sides - the sauteed spinach and the spicy macaroni and cheese. Both were excellent - again, more than enough for three. We also shared a slice of cheesecake with an amazing whipped cream (apparently, the secret is a touch of marshmallow).
A truly memorable dinner. Always well worth the expense.
One tip - make reservations! By 6:30 on a Sunday night the restaurant was full with a line of at least 20 (who did not make reservations) waiting for a table.
