Fleming's Steakhouse - La Jolla Ratings and Reviews

Considering their expensive prices, thought the food would taste a better, was a little on the salty side as far as the crab cakes, filet mignon & miso seabass. But their chocolate lava cake was to die for, best one I had to date. Also our waitresses April gave us exceptional service & attention, made my son's 11th birthday celebration!! Want to return here for my birthday lol.

I've had much better steakhouse meals, including at other Flemings. The steaks were not excellent, but they were very good. However, at well over $40 per steak (a la carte) you'd expect something transcendent. The sides were average at best and the salads were fair at best. The lettuce in the wedge salads were not crisp, instead of bacon they used pork belly, while trendy, it's not a good substitute when the salad is already fatty and rich with blue cheese. The blue cheese dressing was bland and covered everything. The roast cherry tomatoes were placid when they should have added a crisp tart accent. Service was very good and attentive.

We got to the restaurant at 730 for a 745 reservation. We were told we would be seated closer to 745 but were not seated until about 810, so about 25 min later from our reservation time and took us having to go up to the hostess to inquire to speed the process. The service was slow and not as good as expected for an expensive restaurant. We ordered wine which waiter brought right away but he also told us he would bring us water and bread. He brought water no bread, followed by our appetizer. We asked him later for bread . It was brought to us by someone else but without plates for the bread, they were taken away earlier after we finished our appetizer. On the plus side, my husband raved about his prime rib dinner, Cesar salad and the side of mashed potatoes he ordered. I ordered the sliced filet mignon small plate, and wedge salad. It was pretty good but I have had better.

Went there for my husband's birthday - they NEVER acknowledge this. They do not
put candle in your dessert (even though we ordered a Lava Cake). They do NOT offer a
complimentary dessert. They do bring you a box with 4 chocolates at the end of the meal...and I mean END as we were given the check - and the receipt brought back to us, I had to ask for the chocolates. It was VERY disappointing for a restaurant of this caliber.
When it comes to Fine Dining, there are many other restaurants including those next door to Flemings that are far superior.
Service at a fine dining restaurant, should be equal to the excellent food. Our food was acceptable - our service was not.

I was somewhat apprehensive because of some negative comments about the service but we were pleasantly surprised. The food was unbelievably excellent and the service was excellent as well. The dry aged rib eye was very tender and cooked to perfection and I coupled the steak with a side of mushrooms, excellent together. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Back to Donavans for me. The food and experience just isnt worth the price. We had a problem with the way one steak was cooked. The manager was on top of it. She took the steak which had already been cur in to pieces back to the kitchen. After the third attempt it was like little pieces of charcoal. Why they didn't make a whole new steak is beyond me.

Very disappointed. The servers did not know who ordered which entree. This was the third time in the last three visits where I feel the food and service had gone downhill. They were aggressively pushing the seafood tower on us. I think we will give up on Fleming's. It's too bad because it used to be a high end steakhouse.

Dined at Fleming's on a Thursday night (December 15, 2016) to celebrate a birthday. The food, as always, is very good at Fleming's but, truth be told, it is not good enough to warrant the prices charged. That said, one does not go to Fleming's if one is on a budget so my point about relative value is an observation rather than a criticism. We have been there three times in the last year because others have invited us to an occasion where the location had already been selected. There are many other places where the food is as good or better, the prices the same or slightly lower and the ambiance more desirable (Roy's, Pamplemousse, Vintana, Market, etc.). On the 15th the noise was so loud that four of us could not carry on a conversation without raising our voices to be heard above the din. We had not experienced that noise level before and attribute that criticism to it being the holidays.

I have to say I was disappointed with this visit to Flemings. I've been here a quite few times but the last two times I have visited I have to say I wasn't very satisfied. The rib eye steak I ordered was gristly and the searing of the meat actually resulted in it being burned on the outside. The service was just OK. We ordered a bottle of wine for dinner. The server did pour it into a decanter to allow it breathe while we waited for the dinner to be served. However, that was the last of him on the wine pour until we were ready to leave when an at that point emptied the bottle into our glasses. Considering for two folks we spent close to $300 on dinner, I would have expected the food and service to be outstanding and it wasn't. Flemings had been one of our "go to" steak restaurants over the past couple years but at this time I think we may search for another venue to enjoy this type of gourmet meal. I will say the Chipshot I had at the end of the night was one of the best I ever tasted.

Our steaks were perfectly cooked and delicious. Two of us ordered salads that were drenched in dressings. Next time I'll order dressing on the side. We were seated at a table in the middle of the room where it was very difficult to hear our conversation.

Great ambiance! Great service! Steven our server was great but the food was overpriced compared to other steak houses , a 20 oz steak did not look 20 oz at all , with porcine mushroom that you don't even see at all and they charged and they say it was glazed to the steak ! Feel cheated !! But our server was great !!

First thing, our table was by the hallway, close to wine cellar. The problem was that it was the gathering spot for the employees to talk.
The second issue was with my meal. My filet was not cooked the way I had ordered it. I mentioned it to my waiter and he offered me a new one which I refused, I didn't want to wait for it and eat alone. My husband was enjoying his meal. Our waiter asked for one of the managers to stop by (a lady)our table. The manager was very apologetic and offered us dessert and when we declined, she said she will make some changes to the bill but we didn't get any discount on our bill.

The staff was friendly and went out of their way to provide fine service but if you go to a stakehouse and they service you dry, over cooked meat, and charge you a premium for it, it is disappointing. The prime rib dinner, appetizers, and sides were great but the specials were very over cooked. I'm not sure we will be back.

Dinner was great and since I left a note saying it was for a birthday dinner they took great care and making sure they were aware of it. was a little confused on ordering for medium rare and wish my steak was a little less cooked but the mac n cheese was amazing. great experience overall

My wife and I chose to enjoy Flemings on our vacation to Carlsbad. It was a very enjoyable all-around experience, since we were looking a relaxed, yet special time, with dishes that we could savor in our time together. She ordered the Shrimp and Sea Scallops Small Plate entree, I ordered the petite filet mignon, and we shared a side of Crispy Brussels Sprouts. Both were prepared perfectly. I ordered the filet mignon medium rare, it it was perfect. Both of us enjoyed our dishes thoroughly, and the amount of food was just right, since we both tend to eat lightly. Our service was excellent and I so appreciated our server, Cason, who was warm and welcoming , and took the time to understand our likes and preferences in order to recommend the dishes we eventually ordered. He was very attentive and engaging. When we return to Carlsbad on vacation, we will return and request him for our server. We went on a Tuesday evening, so it was fairly quiet, which we thoroughly enjoyed. All in all, it was an experience we look forward to repeating on our next vacation there.

It has been a while since I have been to Fleming's because I usually go to Donovan's. I was reassured why on this visit. The server was great but disappeared for long periods of time. It took forever for our first course and then the steaks were almost immediately served. My medium rare was medium well but I was so hungry that I just ate it. The quality of meat is not on par with Donovan's. Actually, every time I eat at one of the chain restaurants (Fleming's, Ruth's Chris) I always have the same opinion on the meat. We went there with neighbors who chose the location. I will stick to Donovan's for steak.
