Fleming's Steakhouse - Palo Alto Ratings and Reviews
Our server was charming and otherwise good, but REALLY dropped the ball on creating a sense of celebration for my father's 80th birthday. It was a shame because the rest of the night was lovely. When it came to desert time, there was no acknowledgement--i.e. a candle on the cake or sense of celebration. And yes, the restaurant knew about his birthday.
It could be that we didn't pay for a desert, but if so there was no, "this in on the house in celebration of your birthday.
It was awkward. A classic bummer. And when my sister in law whispered a request for a candle, ultimately one was brought to my father's side of the table and presented with, "do you still want a candle?"
Three days later I still feel the disappointment. Otherwise, I liked the place.
One of the steaks we ordered was oversalted and the other steak was not cooked to our order. The butter served with the bread before dinner was terrible. The salad was mediocre and our side dish of brussel sprouts was burned. Overall the experience was very poor for the price.
I was very pleased that they accommodated us w/ 4 little kids. This is probably the only high-end steakhouse with a kids menu. Each hostess behind the counter made eye contact and greeted our family. The decor was modern and clean. I would say i come to this location quarterly because i do live about 40 miles away.
Everything on the menu is Ala Carte unless you go with the fixed-price menu. I found it to be overpriced for what you get. We were sitting at a table in the corner right by the front door, so the ambience was not good or very private for an anniversary celebration.
Having said that, our filet mignon was cooked to perfection and our waiter was very attentive..
We went to celebrate my boyfriends birthday and from the moment we came in the staff was super friendly and welcoming. We had never been to this steakhouse and the whole experience was incredible. They printed a picture of us, had a little happy birthday card on the table and even gave him truffles as a gift. The food was delicious, our steaks were perfect and the service was fast and efficient. Thank you for making our first time there memorable, we will definitely come back.
We had a wonderful experience and meal. From the hostess to the bus boy, the entire staff was welcoming and professional. The place was busy in a good vibrant way. I called ahead to confirm they had a kids menu for my 10 year old, which they did. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and delicious. The kids don't love eating in high end restaurants that feel stuffy, but this had a great vibe and the kids felt very welcomed. Valet parking was a great touch. Fransisco was exceptional, very personable and efficient.
Have been here twice and it is fantastic. The menu is broad enough to have something for nearly everyone.
While it can get very busy at peak times, the noise level hasn't been an issue. It's possible to have a normal conversation without raising your voice.
The service is excellent. Our servers have been friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and helpful in their recommendations.
The steaks are great. If you like salmon I can highly recommend their Barbecue New Zealand filet. Very nicely seasoned and a reasonably sized portion. All the sides we've tried here have been great, with the grilled asparagus and the double cut shoestring potatoes topping the list. Good selection of dessert choices as well.
It's definitely on the expensive side, but I still consider it good value considering the quality of the food and the overall experience.
Our server, Mike, was WONDERFUL! I was in town from Seattle and brought my niece in for dinner as she is at Stanford for a 3 week program for high school students and was feeling a little homesick. From the start, he was attentive, professional and made great recommendations for us. I had not dined at this location in a long time so it was nice to see that the quality and service I remembered were still consistent.
Please, thank Mike and the team for a wonderful night.
My wife and I went for an early dinner and we were seated right away. I got the prime rib special and I enjoyed the meal. The only down side was that my meat was slightly overcooked. I like a true medium rare and mine was medium at best. My wife's steak was ever so slightly over cooked, also. Everything else was excellent. Our salads were both good and the desserts were excellent. The sides were outstanding as well. Service was exceptional as well. Brooke was our waitress.
We were properly greeted by the receptionist from the front. Service was good until the food arrives. The server delivered our food seemed to be in a rush and put our food down without confirming who ordered what. The Medium prime Rib we ordered came out close to well done. The rib eye and filet Mignon were great. Servers seem to forgot about our table half way through our dinner. Towards the ends, i was asked 3 times within 10 mins that if I've finished with my plat of food. Guess they were in a hurry to close out the dining area? It was about 30 mins before the closing time. They rushed to pick up our plates after we were done, the waitress even spilled a lot of water on the table and onto my pants while she was filling up my water from across the table. Overall the food was decent but service was bad.
My wife and I had a fantastic meal last Saturday evening at Fleming's. The steaks are grass fed and superb! This is our second time to Fleming's. The service is five stars. Are two waiters Chuk and Carlos were outstanding. We look forward to many more dinners at Fleming's. This is the best steak house on the Peninsula.
Although I got an email stating a three course prime rib special on Sundays and Mondays with no coupon needed for $29.95, I was asked for a printed prove. It caught me by surprise since most restaurants honor their advertisement. There was no advertisement of it in their menu either. To make a story short the waitress told me that at their restaurant it was $34.95 and the $29.95 was for all other locations.
When I got home I checked the email and there is nothing specifying at what locations the $29.95 was for; therefore, it is assumed that it covers all locations.
Although the difference was only five dollars I am very disappointed with the outcome because I've eaten there several times and usually the staff has been very accommodating.
I realized that the restaurant in Palo Alto seems to have a good clientele whenever I've been there before in the past, not to honor or acknowledge corporate advertisement leaves a lot to be desired .
It was my first visit to the restaurant.
I came for the Sunday Prime Rib Special. I usually like to order the caesar salad, but I did not do so because of the description: hearts of romaine, parmesan, fried capers, crisp prosciutto chips. For me THAT IS NO A CAESAR SALAD! So instead I ordered the least offensive THE NEW WEDGE (seasoned bacon, tomatoes, crumbled gorgonzola, onions, danish blue cheese dressing). The "seasoned bacon" was whole slices of bacon with A LOT OF HOT PEPPER. Even my companion, who likes hot food, did not eat her bacon. My medium prime rib looked like an old piece of meat; it was flaccid, thin and not flavorful. The three sauces that came with it was not presented, as noted. They did two of the spiced ones, and one horseradish , so I didn't get the the au juice. For my side I ordered the GRILLED HIGH COUNTRY ASPARAGUS. For a restaurant of "that caliber" I would have expected to have the asparagus trimmed so that no hard chewy part was left. Sadly, the was not the case:( Dessert was good. I had the berries.
I had to take two doses of Tums that night.
As one would expect......it will be my last visit to the restaurant.
