“Good bar Happy Hour. Seemed consistent with other Flemings. Services was attentive, steaks were very good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

Decent happy hour selection at the bar. Filet flatbread looked divine but I didn't get a chance to try it. HH menu is only at bar. Table service was good, 1 person in my party was served the wrong dish but settled for it and the compd it. Ribeye was great and steamed spinach was nicely done. Overall very good consistent Flemings experience.

“Mediocre food, offensive service. Stay away”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

It was surprising how bad the service was and how slow the kitchen was. What was more surprising was that after hours of waiting, the food was terrible. The waiter did not seem to care. His first response to our complaint was, "do you really want to wait for another steak?" I decided that I could get better service at the Jack n the Box drive through and left. I have worked in and managed restaurants for years and would fire any staff that acted like that to a guest. After we asked for a manager and watched the waiter tell, he (the manager) proceeded to watch about 15 minutes of the Sunday night football game before gracing us with his presence. It was clear that the ineptitude is systemic at this place. Stay away if you like to have a chance of enjoying a meal.

“Freezing Cold”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

We ate in the bar area and the staff propped the front door open. Cold air was flooding in and they were oblivious.
Great service, food was mediocre. Seems to be quite popular, not sure why.

“Great food & service but pricey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner here. We both had the filet mignon with bone attached which I've never been offered at any other restaurant before, and it was fabulous! Probably the best steak I've ever eaten! It was a special and not on the menu but the waiter told me they usually have it. Everything is a la carte, which tends to make things more expensive, but they are big enough for 2 or even 3 people. The Wedge salad and 3 different kind of mashed potatoes were wonderful. The garlic potatoes had big wedges of garlic on top which the waiter then stirred into the potatoes. Our waiter was very friendly and experienced. They could have had more a dessert selection but the cheesecake and mud pie were very good! It was pretty noisy and crowded on a Saturday night, which is to be expected. I think they could lose a few of the tables to make it less crowded. It was nice not to have to drive to SF for this good a meal. This is a good restaurant for a special occasion.

“Always awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I've been coming here for years, and am never disappointed! The wine bar and the Steaks are absolutely the best in Palo Alto, the waiters and bartenders are friendly, knowledgeable and professional...closer to a SF restaurant than a peninsula one. Enjoy!
