“Tough steak, annoying service, pricey”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

I expect more for a fifty dollar bill. We were seated in a far corner, near the kitchen, and my NY Strip steak was not only tough but small. Seriously, they've got better steaks at that big, Australian-themed chain, and at half the price. The veggies as an a la carte side dish were unexciting. The dessert took forever to arrive, and was uninspiring. The waiter continuously tried to upsell us to dishes we were not interested in. On the plus side, they kept the water glasses full. But for that price, it should be bottled water. I was very disappointed.

“Server apathy”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

I have been to Flemings in other cities so knew what to expect. Some of the food can be very good. The problem here was an inattentive waitress.

“As expected”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

I like Flemings and ater there two nights during my trip to Providence. The Salmon is outstanding. I am not a big fan of Salmon. That is the only seafood i generally do not care for. However, that is the only thing I do order at Flemings. It is an absolutley outstanding dish. The BBQ sauce is the right mix of sweet and spicy and the mushroom salad is perfect. The fish is extremelly mild as well.

This wine list at Flemings is nice. They do have some very upper end wines, but there list accomadates the general business diner.

The food at Flemings is consistent no matter where you go. The prices are a bit high as you find with any of the large steak house chains.

My associates that did have steak gave it mixed reviews. None bad, but few "WOW!" reviews. The one constant comment was that it was sliced rather thin, which i could see as well.

“Love Flemings!”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Great food, tremendous service (Hannah is by far our favorite waitress there) and nice atmosphere. Their signature potatoes are not to be missed.
