Fleming's Steakhouse - Palo Alto Ratings and Reviews

Priced like a 5 start joint, but falls short on all fronts. Food (delicious, but steaks arrived warm, not hot), service (attentive, but inconsistent and not entirely professional), pacing (took too long), attention (water refills and wine pours were too infrequent).
The restaurant is beautiful, but they need to up their game for me to return.
Dessert took over 30 minutes to come out ...
Dessert took over 30 minutes to come out (lava cake) due to multiple people ordering it and the kitchen being backed up. Other than that, the prime rib was fantastic! Would have preferred larger asparagus (these were miniature). Onion rings were great and creamed spinach was better the 2nd day (more creamy).

This was our first time. We were seated next to a family with very loud kids- not the restaurants fault. The burrata was graining and salty- not great. The steak was too rare but they took it back and cooked it to the correct temperature. Lobster was great. Asparagus was not worth $11+.
Service was great!

We had a marvelous anniversary celebration. We were greeted with warmth and attentiveness. We were encouraged to taste test some wines. We were given a card and a special treat for our anniversary. The special treat was there own made truffles - they did test good but felt they truly were not truffles. It's the thought that counts. We did enjoy ourselves.

Came here to celebrate my dad's birthday and it was an amazing first experience! My family came on a Sunday so we were able to order the prime rib dinner - SO WORTH IT. It comes with a salad, prime rib, and dessert of your choosing :) My dad ordered the filet mignon and he loved it. Because it was his birthday, they had a little surprise (chocolates) at the end. Overall, the service as amazing, wine and food was amazing. Awesome experience :D

Made reservations here due to positive reviews from others who had dined there and were not disappointed for our anniversary. Food was great as was the service. Definitely on the high side price wise, but worth it. The only potential issue is that the ambient noise is on the high side but it did not interfere with conversation at normal levels.
Very surprised on our entrees. The file ...
Very surprised on our entrees. The filet mignon was cooked just right but quite a few chewy parts to it. Had plenty of flavor but was not tender. The asparagus was also stringy. The ends were not cut/trim, therefore it made for very stringy asparagus.
This was our first time to Flemings in Palo Alto. It was a disappointment to drive across the bay to have meals that were not up to its normal goodness.

Fleming's used to be a special place to dine. Special occasion or when you just wanted to splurge. Now it seems to have lost its elegance, attracting a noisy, very casually dressed clientele. Also the quality of the ribeye seems to have slipped a bit. There was a bit of sticker shock over the $16 martini, and table service could hardly be called personal or attentive anymore. With sadness, I will start looking for a new steakhouse in the area.
Very limited on salad offerings.
They must be afraid someone will only order a salad and skip the red meat order. My wife does not eat beef since mad cow disease and she was disappointed in the small, overly simple and small salad offered. We will be waiting for the menu to add larger salad choices.

It took Fleming's FOUR (shocking, I know!) to get not only the right fairness on the steak, but they also brought out a flat sirloin when I ordered Filet Mignon.
The managers were less than professional.
What a FLOP on my husband's birthday!
We'll stick with a real steakhouse, Los Altos Grille.
Excellent but you pay for it
No doubt about it, this will be a $250-$300 meal for two. We began with cocktails, I had a blueberry lemon martini and it was delicious, innovative and I'd have another, please. My husband had a Manhattan, very good too. We had caesar salads, well dressed. I had an 8 oz. filet which was delicious, $46.50 for 8 oz. of beef. There was nothing else on the plate. My husband had sea bass, beautifully prepared, delicious broth, he was very pleased. We ordered a glass of wine with dinner...and finished with a shared Creme Brulle, with a large dollop of whipped cream on the side. We loved our dinner and enjoyed the evening.

The food and service at this chain restaurant were outstanding...although in some respects the service was too fast, it seemed a bit rushed. Also, I was surprised at how very casually dressed everyone was, both guests and staff. The very high prices would suggest this is fine dining but the look and feel of the place would be more fitting for a casual bistro. Having said this, as long as your expectations are realistic, you'll have a great time. Like the people at the table next to ours who were incredibly noisy and raucous. Don't expect to have a quiet, romantic meal at this place.

At these prices, the service should be better. When one spends $50 on a steak, it would be nice for it to include veggies, starch or both. Plus, our water was served in a cracked glass, and they forgot to leave out the ice as we requested. At least the steak was very good.

Summary: Fantastic menu, excellent service, and a great location.
Details: This is my first trip to Fleming's Prime Steakhouse. A friend recommended it for dinner, and I am glad she did. The food here was very good. The menu had a very good selection of choices in every category, from appetizers to main courses and side dishes. My choice was the 16oz. New York Strip prepared black and blue, and my dining companion had the 8oz Petite Filet mignon prepared medium rare, along with two reds: the Duckhorn Merlot and the Rutherford Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon. We shared three sides: truffle-parsley mashed potatoes, sautéed mushrooms, and spicy thai green beans.
The meal was amazing, steak temps were dead-on, and the sides were the perfect accent to the meal. We both really wished we had room for dessert; perhaps next time!
Overall, steaks were flavorful and sides ...
Overall, steaks were flavorful and sides of creamed spinach and fries also very good. Special occasion for us so we came for the prime rib special, but they were sold out at only 7:30, and out of cheesecake too. So they need to plan better for large crowds. Our waiter was great, but unfortunately kept asking us our dessert choice repeatedly while we were still eating dinner--must have asked about 4-5 times! Very nervewracking, and not something an experienced waiter would do, particularly at that price point.

The service was great and so was the ambience but I asked for my steak to be medium and got a very well-done steak. My coworker was dining with me only got quarter of her steak medium the rest was medium well. Along with my cocktail glass and water glass having cracks in them. Once the Manager was alerted to the cracked glass she handled the situation.
Pricey, lacks consistency
Fleming's is now charging up to $60 for a steak (a la carte), but they still can't cook their meat consistently. We ordered 3 steaks -- a medium came rare, another medium came medium-rare, and a medium-rare that came medium-rare. Pretty weak for a steakhouse. For a top price, the food and prep should be perfect and these guys do not deliver.
This was my first time at the restaurant and I can honestly say that I was not disappointed. Everything from the service to the meals were excellent. The only downside we experienced was that their distributor did not make a delivery with their beer offerings; people in my party had to pick and choose three separate times as the server and manager were finding out what they did and did not have in stock. However - this is minor and had been resolved. We were given a free appetizer for my brother's birthday and from there - service and food were all excellent.
You would not know that this restaurant is within a shopping center. At night - the restaurant has that stand-alone feeling and - if the stores have not closed - you have time to walk around the outdoor mall. Word of caution - if you want to dine here during the day, parking can be tricky and challenging, particularly on the weekends.
In all, you get what you pay for with this restaurant and this restaurant - while pricey and not cheap - is all excellent.

The food was absolutely delicious, just as expected. What caught my attention the most was the excellent customer service we received from everyone. Our knowledgeable waiter, manager on duty who was walking the floor, and the other waiters who also checked in with us. Everyone was very friendly, caring, and knowledgeable.
