“Spoiled diner”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Maybe I am spoiled. I moved from the north and frequented many Fleming like restaurants. This was my second visit to Flemings. First time was wonderful and they get my stellar ratings. This time. Somewhat a let down. Let's put aside the food. The food is great; the steaks were cooked to perfection and my three guests left feeling full. But the let down was the service. It was okay. Two hundred plus bills should call for more than okay service. Efficient...yes. Engaging.... no. Maybe I'm spoiled. I noticed a number of natty dressed men walking around. I am assuming they were the floor managers. Not once did they come to the table and just ask the "how's"...how was the food, how was the service, how was the wine? The engagement of customers by management is essential whether it be Charley's Dinner, where Charley knows everyone's name or Flemings. I like the food enough that I may make a return visit and wait.....to see the quality of service and whether the guys in the ties and suits ask the how's.

“CANNOT BELIEVE THE BAD COMMENTARY - SERVICE AND FOOD EXCEPTIONAL!!!!”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

I just read some of the recent reviews of this restaurant and I cannot believe what I'm reading. Food was out of this world. My companion had the Sunday special Prime Rib and she was over the moon with her choice. I chose Filet Mignon and you hardly needed a knife to cut it, so tender and delicious. Sure, it's a bit pricey, but it's not a place you go to on a daily basis, but I am sure glad we treated ourselves tonight, because it was a great experience.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Food wasn't bad; but, certainly not worth the price and definitely not worth putting up with the pretentious, unfriendly staff. I've eaten at many upper-scale steakhouses with awesome food and atmosphere. The atmosphere here was nice, the food was okay--not great. I brought my mother here for Mother's Day and we were all pretty disappointed.
