Fleming's Steakhouse - Knoxville Ratings and Reviews

My wife and I had been very busy for months and we decided we needed a nice break to just sit, eat, talk, and have a good drink. It was calming and the food was awesome!! the lighting was a little dark, but we overcame and had a wonderful time together. Our server, Justin was on top of everything, knew the menu and drinks to offer and explain. We could not of had a more pleasant dinner with amazing food. It was worth the time and money spent and we will definitely come back, maybe for happy hour and light foods.
Also, the greeting staff were very friendly and pleasant

I reviewed this restaurant back in March 2014. My opinion really hasn't changed at all. We dined on Valentine's Day. We had a 7:30 PM reservation and were promptly seated at 7:35 (in a booth that I had requested via OpenTable). All of the hostesses were wonderful and greeted us on our arrival and extended Valentine's Day wishes. Our server was great. He really knew what he was doing and took care of us in a very professional and elegant way. He poured our water and gave us time to look at the wine list. After choosing, he delivered it very promptly. The wine list here is awesome, but somewhat overpriced. We ordered from the Prix Fixe menu. The appetizer of a large shrimp and scallop was delicious. Our salads were delicious. However, here is where I was disappointed again. The 8-oz filet was not that tender and was rather bland in taste. Adding salt and pepper helped. For a PRIME steakhouse, the steak should have been able to be cut with a fork. A couple of bites took some extended chewing to break down. Also, the steak was just lukewarm... not hot at all. And by the time we were finishing up, it was COLD. Again, if you want to be a PRIME steakhouse, serve your steak just out of the broiler on a super-heated plate (like your PRIME competitor on the downtown river does). That way, it stays warm to the end. My wife's salmon and my lobster were delicious as was the hot bread. One more complaint... it was Valentine's night, yet the piped music was a mixture of "radio hits". This type of establishment needs soft, smooth, relaxing jazz playing to match its low-light, romantic ambiance. Will we go back? Maybe... but it will probably be another 3 years. Other than that, we enjoyed our night at Flemings. It just should be better for the price you pay.

I was excited to try 99 calorie drink bikinitini tht I saw on website. When I got my drink it had pineapple juice which I hate. Website said clementine vodka. She said bartender said he hadn't made it in forever. I sent back. It was not why was advertised on website

Flemings is a consistently nice place for a quiet dinner with my wife as a special occasion for our "dates". We enjoy the ambience, the quiet that lets us talk and hear each other, the non-obtrusive but efficient and courteous, knowledgeable wait staff and the food and drink. They make drinks to order, including an impeccable martini. The wine list is always good and extensive so that makes it a nice complement to the meal. We reserve Flemings for the special occasions in our dining and are never disappointed.

We love Flemings. It is our go-to spot for special occasions, whether ordering from a booth at the bar, or in the dining room. Some of the best drinks in town. Did I mention, we love sitting at the bar?? Reliably delicious, excellent service. Interesting wine list. We are picky, picky about our dining experience, but the quality of the product and the graciousness of the staff keep us coming back.

Frequent flyer here. Predictable, but very high quality. If you like great cocktails, great wine, and great service from experienced waiters (Rexanne, Heather, or Matthew by request), you can do no better in Knoxville.

it is definitely an up market restaurant, and we were expecting a big bill at the end, but it didn't put us off, as it was our anniversary. The food was amazing, the service was exceptional. The staff (waiters/waitresses, support staff/managers) were all pleasant and happy to answer any questions we had about our food, and it's type. They all tried there best to answer our vague questions, like out of a choice of 100+ wines, we asked which was the best, which in hindsight we know they couldn't, but they tailored the choice on questions we answered to her, like what type we liked, was it sweet, dry, red, white, what other wines have we liked before. I have to honestly say I will and would go back, but it would be on special occasions, it's not the type of place you could go to every weekend (well, unless you own 4 luxury cars and have a bank balance with 7+ zero's on the end)

Birthday celebration for my father in law. The staff went out of their way to make it special with a genuine caring approach and the added benefit of a brief note and truffles at the end were perfect for establishing a next visit as well as a long term relationship. The food was prepared perfectly and the wine suggested was spot on.

first meal I ate here was wonderful , after 3 more meals and a steady decline of poor service and marginal food , I regret to say I will never return , last meal here at fleming was burned beyond recognition , the sides were awful as well , preordered dessert and it was forgotten , and after a 190$ bill , Flemings is now forgotten

I have not eaten here in quite a long time. Received a promotional $40 coupon from them so thought we would give it a go. All the courses came too fast. We had our main course delivered to the table about 45 minutes after being seated. My steak was overcooked ordered medium filet and it was medium well to well. So I got to watch my wife eat while I waited for another. The staff was apologetic but that should not happen at this caliber of a restaurant. We were in and out in less than 90 minutes. It was not worth over $2.50/minute!

Enjoyed everything overall. My prime rib was not the best, but good. Didn't have a whole lot of flavor. The server was excellent with the meal, as well as helping with a problem that we had with the gift card. We had a $100.00 gift card, and the bill was $65.00. We were told that we could not use the remainder on another visit, so we had to end up ordering a take out. That was not good since we had a two hour trip to get home, plus waiting for it to be cooked.

The customer service was outstanding. My salad was delicious. My steaK was over cooked and the potatoes were undercooked. For the price, I expected better food. My happy hour experience from a previous time was better.
I have never been to a prime steakhouse ...
I have never been to a prime steakhouse before where the cuts of meat were so thin. My husband got the 16 oz bone-in rib-eye and I got the Wagyu strip both, maybe, an inch thick. While the flavor of both were delightful, mine was so tough that I had to chew forever and finally gave up on two bites that I had to discretely put back on my plate. We did not complain as they were so nice and attentive and didn't want to make a big deal out of it since we had a $100 gift card (but still came out of pocket $138). The macaroni and cheese and asparagus were both delicious, thankfully. I feel confident that had we complained, they would have taken care of us...the fact that we needed to was shocking as I've never had to while dining at any other prime steak house...EVER
My wife and I visited this establishment ...
My wife and I visited this establishment last Saturday evening. We had eaten here years ago (disappointed then) but I was able to grab a decent hour reservation last minute for a Saturday night so I thought we'd try it again.
The same end result as our last visit (less the valet parking). The food was average at best but the prices are still way too high.
No strangers to the prices that come with true fine dining. We have enjoyed some of the finest sole proprietor establishments in cities like New Orleans, Chicago & Miami. Being native to Knoxville we have dined at Connors , Copper Cellar, Regas (when it was open) and others.
Bottom line, Flemings (even if you can get past the name) is hard to swallow. The Truffled lobster was cold & rubbery as if it had been lying around for an hour or so waiting for someone to order.
My medium cooked Filet was difficult to cut and "chewy". Come on guys, these are basic dishes that should impress "special occasion" diners at the very least. My bill for two was $210 after a well deserved 20% gratuity. Our Waiter is the only thing we were entertained and impressed with.
Fellow Knoxvillians I recommend #1 Ruth's Chris downtown on the river. Choose from any of their "Ruth's Classic" menu selections and dine for Two with sincerely appetizing food for $100 or less. Recommendation #2 Connors Steakhouse. Enjoy the ambiance of fine dining with slightly above casual pricing. My family of four enjoyed an evening here for $157 out the door including deserts.
My advice to Flemings is this. Higher prices do not equal better Food. Fine dining is an experience but the meal quality should always comes first.
Great Service and atmosphere, easy to get a reservation. Overpriced for Average food...

This was my first trip to Fleming's in Knoxville; I had eaten at Fleming's in Nashville a few years ago and enjoyed it very much. I was anxious to visit the Knox location and had a friend in town staying in the Turkey Creek area, so it seemed like the right time. I loved the atmosphere, ambiance and decor. The menu variety was excellent and food preparation was also. It is a bit pricey, but special occasions call for a little extra in my book , and this was "right down my alley!"
