I had high hopes for Fleming's, who pride themselves on being not just a steakhouse, but a "prime" steakhouse that serves only USDA "prime" steaks. I went there with a large dinner party this month. The restaurant has valet for $3 and a coat check. The valet takes up all the closest spots to the restaurant. This is a little irritating at dinner time. Fleming's shares a parking lot with Cheesecake Factory, Kona Grill and several other restaurants. A dozen empty valet spots leave the rest of us freezing our you-know-whats off walking two blocks from the next closest open spots. The VALET is the one who should be using spaces furthest away.
That said, the appetizers were very good. I also had the french onion soup, which was delicious. I ordered a "main" filet, I think it was an 8 or 10 oz? I can't remember. The only thing I remember was that my steak looked like a small NY Strip and not a filet. The texture of the meat, the flavor...it was all there. But the steak itself was about 1" thick and long (again, just like a Strip). I brought to the attention to the waiter and asked if he was sure it was a filet (the wait staff had put the wrong dinner plate in front of LITERALLY everyone at the table and had to go back to double check orders). I was told by the snotty waiter that if my steak wasn't "visually appealing" that he would see what he could do about it. Thanks but no thanks! I only asked if he was sure it was a filet. To which he responded "yes". But I'm still apprehensive in these days of meat glue and pink slime...reports say even the steakhouses who claim to be upscale are the most common offenders. The rest of the meal was uneventful, but good. Overall, the food was good and the service was OK (dispite the order mix ups and snotty responses). I would eat here again...if I wasn't paying! The bar was very busy and seems like a cool place to come for just a happy hour.
For quality, quantity and value I would recommend Wildfire ANY DAY over this place if you're looking for a good steak.
