My wife and I were given a gift certificate, for a romantic dinner for two, at Fleming's in Palo Alto, Ca. Since neither of us had been there before, this is a chain, I didn’t know quite what to expect. After being greeted at the door we were led to our table, by a very nice host, and introduced to our waiter Marissa. Because it was Sunday, both of us had decided to order the Prime Rib dinner special. I have no idea why it’s only available on Sunday, but believe me, it was a meal fit for a king. You get a choice of salads, the main course with one side dish and then any desert you want. They do offer an extensive wine list, but we brought our own bottle ($20 corkage fee) and it went very well with the meal. The salad was larger than I had imagined and it could have been a meal in itself. The Prime Rib was cooked to perfection and was quite a generous portion as well. For side dishes, my wife ordered the asparagus and I opted for the creamed spinach. We finished off the dinner with two orders of the Lava Cake. This takes about an extra 15 minutes to prepare, but it was well worth it. It was heaven on a plate. This is the first time that I have been to Fleming's and it will not be the last. The service, the food and the attention to detail made our visit very special.
