Fleming's Steakhouse - Palo Alto Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
This is a cookie cutter skeakhouse with 2x pricing.
Nothing original on the menu.
Would satisfy anyone who doesn't want to be surprised and dreams of a steak with a lobster tail and mash potatoes.
Very loud inside. Staff was nice and gave us a quiet place on the patio.
I had a good evening with my wife, because of the company.
A little on the expensive side. The food was good, no doubt. But I could get an equal steak for maybe 15-25% less in other places. Ambiance was nice but service came by a bit slow. Little improvements here and there can be made but an overall still strong place as far as steakhouses go.
We went to Flemings in its new location for the first time - so it's been over a year since we were last there. It is much more open and inviting than the previous location and the food is even more memorable. We started with fried calamari which was lightly breaded and crispy served with a mild sweet chili dipping sauce. Then we each had the petite filet - at 8 oz still a generous amount of meat without being artery-clogging. We like ours slightly pink throughout, which is 'medium' and was perfectly fork tender and seasoned just right. We ordered the truffled mashed potatoes and crispy brussels sprouts as sides - both excellent. The sprouts are sautéed with bacon, which is an unusual preparation for us but we enjoyed it. The only negative to the food on any level at all was that the sprouts were still way too hot when they got to our table; we needed to let them cool down to eat. One of our party had the fresh tomato bisque soup which I tasted - I could taste the freshness of the tomatoes and the basil. For dessert we shared a piece of carrot cake which was also delicious. Our pre-dinner martinis were just as we'd ordered and I enjoyed a glass of Duckhorn merlot which the waiter recommended. The service deserves a special note - it was a birthday celebration for my husband, which I had mentioned to the restaurant at the time of reservation, and the restaurant responded beautifully. There was a birthday card to welcome him at the table and a small box of truffles with a candle when dessert was served, and there were no unwelcome singers at the side of the table. Our waiter was outstanding, attentive without hovering, friendly without being overly chummy. Altogether we had a great experience and my husband of 37 years told me later it was one of the nicest birthdays he's ever had (and he's had a lot!). We'll go back again when we want a treat!
This is a steak house, and in that respect it is first-class. I had the dry aged ribeye-amazing. Also, the Sapphire Martini-very good. However, we eat here regularly and order the "Wedge Salad". It has been cheapened since our last visit. No longer is a thick slice of succulent bacon part of the salad. Now there are just a couple of strips of regular bacon. Also, there are no longer "Small Plates".
They were really focus on service. Our server was excellent. Just the right amount of attention. The busboys made sure that our water was always full and plates were removed when we had finished. During the course of our meal we had two different managers stop by to make sure everything was fine. This was my first time at this location and I was happy to see that the exceptional service I have always experienced at The Destin Fl location has been duplicated here in Palo Alto. We will be back.
Great place been coming for years but the prices are way too high for what you get. Plenty of other nicer restaurants for that kind of money. Had dinner at Madera at Rosewood for the same price and that's a Michelin star restaurant. For the money I'll. E going there from now on
Celebrating with my family about a new job in the area and we were not disappointed! We were seated in Michael's section and he was amazing! His service was very attentive (but not annoying, an important distinction) and the food was all perfectly cooked. The crab cakes are great, but the dry age strip steak is even better! I would definitely recommend flemmings to anyone looking for a great steak dinner or to celebrate a special occasion.
Somehow we missed this establishment so far, and took the opportunity to celebrate a birthday. The total experience was great. The restaurant provides a great service, keeping a good distance from "posh". Prices were comparable to other top-notch steakhouses.
Quite noisy though - if you are looking for a quite place - that may not be your best choice.
The food was great, steaks made to perfection, and served at the right temperature.
No sommelier in the area, the waitress was left to recommended a pinot noir that proved to be a great choice. All in all very good experience - definitely recommended.
Got together with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday. There was a signed card at the table waiting for us! The birthday boy really enjoyed the attention, especially since it was not over the top.
Food was great and our server was on top of it!
Cant wait to celebrate another birthday here
Having been to Fleming's before we knew the restaurant and great service, but the food and service this time was way off even though the waiter was making an effort. Upon seating with two kids, needed to ask for kid's menus twice which should've automatically come as we were sat by the hostess (?). Drink order was late and minus one, and appetizer was forgotten and later served with dinner (w/ apologies and comp'd). The medium requested prime ribs were well passed done, and cheerfully replaced with a ribeye as the kitchen was out (which may explain the dry gray primes we got as the last of the lot). The mushrooms and brussels as a side were passable, but underdone nonetheless. Desserts were more than 20 minutes after their order (and cheerfully added with two more to comp the lateness). Coffee was strong/bitter and had to ask for a second pour that had to be brewed (this was noted as I seemed to need to approve the brewing?) It was an amazing variety of misses and apologies right down to the candle not lit on the table of 6 while all the others around us were. Even with two well behaved kids, it was 2.5hrs of time for not a lot of top notch expected experience. Maybe skip a Sunday night . . .
The food, service and ambience were all outstanding. We were there early so noise level was okay. Meals are on the expensive side but for a special occasion it is a good choice. The steaks and lamb chops were very good as would be expected but I had the shrimp and scallops this time and would definitely order that again. Would also recommend the spinach salad which is large enough for 2 or 3 diners.
My 1st time at Flemings for a friends birthday dinner. Glad we decided to go here. I've been to quite a few steakhouses but none of them match the service & food quality I got at Flemings. Ribeye was to die for. Lobster tempura was amazing. Special sides for the night (lobster Mac & cheese, Lobster mash were incredible as well). From the second I stepped through the door they took care of my friend and I. Manager's name was Kevin I believe? Didn't get the waiter's name. Nonetheless, I will be back. It's not so common to receive such incredible service. Thank You.
