Outstanding in every way. Elegant. Highest level of service.
We used the cocktail patio for a birthday party. It was so perfect for a post SoulCycle get together. They have a pretty good wine menu and couches outside. The staff was incredible and treated us so well. Sometimes you want the steak but you don’t want to sit down formally to do so. Luckily at Fleming’s Stanford you can do either.
Mother’s Day dining was a delight, very busy but was NOT neglected, wonderful table service and excellent drinks
I know it was Mother's Day but it was dinner not brunch, and it was still crazy busy! It was our first time to this restaurant. We were seated at a good sized table in the main dining room. Our server quickly offered to guide us with menu selections so that he could get our orders in as fast as possible to minimize the wait for our toddlers. We ordered the tomahawk and asked of its preparation but our server didn't share that it was on the bone, so we felt it was not of good value though it was cooked to our preference and tasty. We ordered grilled asparagus, creamed spinach and their signature potatoes as sides. The spinach was fine, the potatoes were somewhat bland and the asparagus were not prepped to remove of extra fiber so ended up rather tough to chew. Wines by the glass were served cellar temp and went really well with our steaks. We opted for ice cream and sorbet for a light ending. It seemed odd that the sides were intended to be shared family style while appetizers and proteins were intended by the individual portion. Overall, the food was good, not great, and rather pricey for the quality. This place is better for the business expense account.
We went for the Mother's Day celebration. The special brunch menu was excellent, though a bit on the pricey side and too big of a portion (20% less on price & serving would be perfect for brunch).
Enjoy the setting and the ambiance, would definitely come back and try dinner.
My girlfriend and I along with both sets of our parents enjoyed the Mother's Day Brunch menu. The menu had excellent selections. Both my mother and I made a mistake reading the menu thinking that we had ordered a filet mignon eggs benedict. When they arrived one of the eggs was over crabmeat. Two of the parents ordered the Steak and eggs and the filet mignon meat looked amazing! I wish that it was the same meat that was used for my meal. The service was outstanding! Everything else on the menu was wonderful!
What a wonderful mother's day lunch. Very nice staff and service. But as expected very busy. The meal for all 3 of is tasted delicious. The soup, steak, egg benedict and dessert all tasted delicious. Definitely a nice place. Just be aware, this place is not cheap, but worth it for a special occasion.
Great food, great service—thanks Steve for the outstanding service. Paul
Excellent steak - ours were cooked to perfection. I prefer fillet and it was perfect. Husband prefers New York cut and he said it was the best he had had in ages. He also like the wine selection. Service was friendly and server was very knowledgeable on menu. Only minus was "bearnaise" or "horseradish" sauces on the side are not really sauces, but flavored butter. Did not care for that - would have preferred the real sauces as I do not care to dip my $50 steak in melted butter. Yuck. Everything else, including sides was good.
We had the New York Steak. It was cooked perfectly. We each had a different glass of wine. We enjoyed the food and the service. We always wanted to try this restaurant. We will come back again.
While the service was excellent, the food quality has taken a definite downward turn. One of our diners steaks was cooked medium well instead of medium rare. Even though our server promptly returned it to the kitchen, everyone else had finished before the new
steak arrived. The Caesar salad was completely dry and flavorless. Both of the sides appeared to have been cooked in advance and simply reheated. The only saving grace was the dessert course.
Overall, the price does not justify the marginal food quality and it’s disappointing to see a former top notch restaurant lose it’s edge.
First, my wife and I are always looking for a steak house that rivals Ruth Chris for rib eyes, and Flemings certainly did, great dry aged rib eye. We have tried other national and local steak houses, and most fail.
Second, I have had Chilean Sea Bass dozens of times and this was the best. Miso glazed and came out perfectly crusted, moist in the center and perfect temperature.
Third, very good and attentive service.
We went to Fleming’s to celebrate our daughter’s good college grades! The service we received from our waiter, John Maynard was excellent as was our meal.
Wonderful evening thanks to John!
Look, I wasn’t expecting a Michelin experience but there is an elevated expectation when you order a $60 steak on a plate. I ordered NY Strip rare. It came out, at best, med-well. My dining companion’s steak was cooked how he ordered it. Server came by -who was lovely- and I told her the steak was overdone. She grabs a towel (the plate’s so hot it can’t be handled bare-handed. We’ll get to that later on) and takes the steak back, assuring me the kitchen would redo it. Problem: my guest was now uncomfortable eating while my place setting remained empty. I insisted he ate, as he should enjoy it hot...including both sides. After about 15 minutes, a manager (I assume this was his role based solely on his attire, not for his attempt at basic hospitality) comes out with another steak and cautions me that the plate is extremely hot. Never acknowledged the failed first attempt, never came by the table during the wait for the redo. Instead, puts the impossibly hot plate in front of me, asks to cut into it to verify temp and then leaves. Never checks back. I’m perplexed why a restaurant would serve a steak on a plate that is continuing to sear and cook the meat! Ever heard of carryover cooking? This is cooking 101. I grabbed my napkin (to protect my fingers) and slid the 16oz (as I recall) steak on my small bread plate and ate the remainder of the now-cold sides. For the record, we had the mushrooms and the Fleming’s potatoes and they were fantastic...when they were hot. They did end up comping my steak but all I wanted was to sit down, enjoy dinner *together* and happily pay for it. Instead, we ate at separate times, I dined off of a bread plate and ate cold sides. Come on.
*Manager should have come and acknowledged the shortcoming.
*He should have checked in mid-way, offering a salad or something quick so my guest didn’t awkwardly have to dine alone.
*Stop the insanely hot plates. Even if it comes out rare, it’ll be over cooked halfway through.
tender, tasty filet mignon. Delish salads. Outstanding service. Recommended a great wine by the glass.
Awesome food and cocktails. Service was excellent.
Excellent food (Both steaks and seafood) Filet Mignons were cooked to perfection. Chilean Sea Bass was very moist and tasty. Our server Mike was the best waiter ever. Very attentive and courteous. Because of him, we rate Flemings as the best steakhouse in Palo Alto/Menlo Park area.
We have been to others: Sundance, LB Steakhouse, etc. where the food might be just as comparable but the service is definitely A-One at Flemings.
We had our wedding anniversary lunch here with our son and you did not disappoint! We were touched by the card and greeting on our dessert plate. The steak was so tender and the salmon and chicken were delicious as well. Our server Christina was awesome ! She checked on us often and so did the other staff members. We love coming here for special occasions.
Food was great, however this the service received was below what I expected. Once the steaks were delivered the waitress never even came by to ask if the temperature was correct, which is the least they should do at a steakhouse.
Our steak was over cooked and the waiter didn't check back with us until after we were finished with our meal
Service was slow, and we were not served bread until asked for. The food was mediocre, far below what one would expect at this price point. The asparagus was old and stringy, and our filet was nothing special. Overall, there is far better value at this price point out there.
Fleming's really knows how to do meat! Our waiter was there just enough without being overbearing or absent. We started with crab cakes which were moist and delicious. I had the rib eye cooked to medium rare plus which was perfect and succulent! My wife had the Chilean sea bass which was tasty and nicely done but I would admit it wasn't the best Chilean sea bass I've ever had. It was a little more tough than the ones I've been used to, but maybe they're over fished. We also had a side of Brussels sprouts caramelized with red onions to perfection. I've never enjoyed Brussels sprouts that much! Even the steak that I took home for leftovers two nights later was still tasty even microwaved. Definitely worth it for a special occasion!
We always enjoy a great steak and cocktails. This seems to be our go-to place for this. They seemed short-staffed. Service was friendly, but uneven. One of us got a cocktail before all of the drink orders were taken. Had to flag down our server a few times.
Another special occasion, this time our 55th anniversary, at Fleming's. We had a wonderful dinner and evening. I needed a 'lobster fix' and was not disappointed. This was last Friday night and the place was really jumping when we arrived. Fortunately the noise level dropped a bit about half way through our meal. Everyone was super-nice and helpful. John M. has waited on us several times and always does a great job. We look forward to returning again and again.
Steak was not as flavorful as usual and was over cooked. The manager bought us dinner and dessert, good service.
Consistent every time. Amazing service. Best steak!
The waiter was short tempered and not friendly. This may be one of the reasons the customer ratings are not consistent and all over the map.
When asked to repeat the special items for the night, he became impatient and short tempered. This is not what we expect at a restaurant like Fleming's.
The server was no where to be found most of the night.
Menu has been downgraded. No more steak rubs! Baked potato was small and the server did not put fixings on the potato. Instead there were small cups of serve-yourself fixings which were not enough. We have eaten here many times, but I doubt we will return. Very disappointing.
Great food and service. Check the website before you go as they have great special offers (such as "three course filet and lobster prix fixe menu for $50) as the waiter/waiteress won't mention the information.
Our Easter Brunch experience was superb from the food options to the attentive service. We selected the Easter Brunch pre-fix menu which was not only delicious but plentiful and good deal ($50 per person).
We went for the Easter brunch. While the food was very good and a reasonable value, the service was painfully slow.
The occasion was my wife's birthday. She had fish and I had steak. Both dishes were very well prepared. Good wine list and the Fleming potatoes are excellent. The noise level is a bit high but the service was top notch. They did screw up our bill but I caught the error and our server was very apologetic and quickly fixed the mistake.
Fleming’s does birthdays very well! Love the service.
Many others offer better quality steaks at a lower prices.
food was good and cook
great value for the prix fix menu
nice touch on birthday truffle in a box
waiter did not check on us (only came for ordering and collecting the check)
bus boy did not refill our bread basket when asked
Steaks were all over cooked. My wife asked for her steak butterflied, but was presented not cut. My son and I asked for medium but both were over cooked - not a stitch of pink in either of them. Worst experience ever at a Fleming’s.
Totally not worth it.
The food was mediocre
It was expensive
It was way too loud - with people actually screaming at times!
