My colleague is from Chicago and he asked which Desert steakhouse I would recommend since I have lived here for four years. If you know Chicago, you know they have a surplus of fabulous restaurants so, without hesitation, suggested Fleming's at The River. I was not sure if he would be overly impressed since he has so many fine dining options, and high expectations due to where he lives. I was mistaken! He was thrilled with Fleming's from the start, hostess opening the door as we arrived, our drinks at the lounge, dining experience, desert, and warm thank you from Patrick Milsop, the manager, as we left.
Operating Partner, Patrick Milsop, who I have encountered on dozens of visits to Fleming's, and Operating Chef, David Burke, are a phenomenal team of restauranteurs. The lounge bartenders are very professional, friendly, and fun. We were seated promptly for our reservation in a large, intimate, comfortable booth, had THE most amazing server (I believe his name is Greg and if you are fortunate enough to be seated in his section, you will be treated like royalty!).
We ordered appetizers, wine, filets, and delicious Fleming's signature potatoes side dish (be prepared to share the sides, generous portions and the cheesy Fleming's potatoes were divine!), and desert to share. We also ordered two deserts to go and we enjoyed the ultimate fine dining, and magnificent atmosphere, service, and attentive staff. Mr. Milsop stopped by guests' tables to personally ensure their satisfaction, and hold him in the highest regard.
There was a very large group celebrating in a private dining room, and overheard them as they made their way out, raving about the fabulous service, and food. If you want the best in the Desert, choose Fleming's. You will enjoy the best on every level. Bravo Fleming's!
