No question, the steaks rate a "5." But the appetizers don't all quite hit that level. And, although the atmosphere is certainly nice enough, it isn't really what you'd expect from a five-star restaurant. The wine list remains excellent. Similarly, the staff is perfectly nice, but they don't quite have the training or polish you'd expect from a five-star restaurant. Don't know whether this makes Fleming's a four or a four and one-half, but it just isn't a solid "5." Management should send the staff out to a world-class restaurant, so they could learn how it should be done at this price point.
In short, a very expensive and very nice dinner, but not the place I'd choose for an important anniversary or critical business meeting. There are only a few places around Washington, DC (or any city) which meet that criterion, and Fleming's isn't one of them. But the steaks are better than the other top line steak houses nearby and Flemings can be a very enjoyable evening. They just need a bit of attention to consistency in food and a little "upgrade" to staffing starting at the reception desk.
