Fleming's Steakhouse - Palo Alto Ratings and Reviews

Might go again just to have a drink at the lively bar. However, Fleming's has the worst steak I've ever had at any steakhouse. I returned the bone-in ribeye that was so full of sinew it was inedible. The New York strip was not much better, and lacked flavor. How a place can call themselves a "prime" steakhouse is beyond reason with such poor quality meat. Head to Alexander's if you want a great steak, and void Flemings.

The service and ambiance is great. However, there are a couple of things that we weren't satisfied with. The chicken tenders for the children, the batter they used, had way TOO much pepper in it, so my children stated it was too spicy for them. When I had a bite of their chicken tenders, the batter was also way too spicy for me - how can they expect the children to consume their chicken tenders this way? I asked for my steak to be medium well/well done, with a slight line of pink in the middle. My steak came out all pink with almost red juices coming out. I was not happy with my steak.

We were looking for a small meal so we split the wedge salad, a filet and a cheese potato dish. It was delicious, very tender steak and just the right amount for us. I also liked that you could order a small or large glass of wine

We treated our son to dinner at Flemings for his 12th birthday and it was an evening he'll never forget. From the moment we arrived, everyone at the restaurant worked to make him feel special. Service was extraordinary. The food was fantastic and the ambiance is lovely. We did have a bit of sticker shock when the bill came. It's easy to run up a large tab since everything is a la carte. But in the end, we felt it was a special treat that was worth it.

This restaurant is always very consistent, the ingredients are good and everything is cooked to perfection. If you like meat, this is heaven on earth, but the other offerings are excellent as well. The service is friendly and timed just right and even the kids enjoy it. Since it is on the pricier side it is great mostly for special occasions.

It has always been a very good place to eat. Prices are good. Food is very good.
Service is and has always been impeccable. We had a little issue with one of the meals and the handled it in a manner that beats any place that I can think of.
Stuff happens sometimes and the handling of those moments is what makes a place good or bad.
Could not have asked for a better experience from all the staff

My wife and I went to Flemings to celebrate our 23rd anniversary. In the past we use to go to Morton's for special occasions but after 2 consecutive disappointing meals, we thought we would give Flemings a try. Everything was wonderful . I ordered the 3 course lobster and fillet dinner and my wife had the prime rib. The food was delivered hot and as ordered. The service was attentive but not too much. One of the managers (Ashley) stopped by our table to make sure everything was perfect. We will definitely be back.

The food was great. I enjoyed my 8 oz steak. My parent thought her steak was a little too salty, so they replaced her steak at no charge and even threw in some desert. The service was wonderful. I highly recommend Fleming's for special occasions in life.

I love the dim lighting for the dinner night I planned. The table didn't have a candle that took up real estate on the table. Also the restaurant uses a tablet for drink/cocktail menu that also recommends drinks in different categories.

We were given the worst table on a slow night pretty sure it was because we booked through open table. Steak was okay, I have been to Flemmings in other cities and really liked the food and atmosphere, the Palo Alto location did not have a good vibe and the food was average.

Had been to the restaurant several times but its been about a year. In the past we had great experiences but this time the service was bad and food subpar. Took 45+ mins to get our ravioli appetizer and the foods quality was really bad. Not worth the price tag.

Please educate your staff on wine. Very friendly servers who are clueless about one of your most important profit centers. Same experience on two visits. Investment in this area will pay off for everyone. Food was excellent,

As I wasn't very hungry, I ordered only the shrimp cocktail. Several years ago I had this shrimp cocktail and it was absolutely outstanding! The shrimp were colossal size prawns from the Gulf of Mexico. Because I was so impressed then, I decided to order the same thing . Unfortunately, I was let down. This time the shrimp while large weren't jumbo in size. More importantly, they were hard, rubbery, and somewhat tasteless. They seemed like the frozen shrimp you can buy at a neighborhood supermarket. When I said something about my experience to a manager, he provided outstanding customer service by not only covering the charge for the shrimp cocktail, but giving me a gift certificate for future dining at Flemings.

Go for the steak! I had the best fillet mignon I have ever had. The waiter recommended it be cooked "rare-plus" which is charred lightly. (This is the way Gordon Ramsey says it must be prepared.) Of course the beef is prime and priced accordingly. The service was expert and amiable. The wine list is terrific, but the Beefeater Dry Martini was enough alcohol for me.

It's really not a good idea to have an untrained and inexperienced Wait staff handle paying customers when you are charging more than average pricing for your quality of a restaurant.
At best our waitress was averaging a 2 out of a scale 1-10. What's worse she was ha delving at lease 5-6 tables with this same attitude.
Our salads we warm and wilted, the Lobster Tails were cold, ice cold and under cooked, the complimentary wine you offered at the beginning of our meal should not be offered. These are $2-3 bottles of wine from the local market.
We tried your restaurant once before 6 months ago and had a poor experience, after the second attempt I am confident we will not be returning to your location ever again.
I donated the comp cards you gave us to charity, hopefully they can get good use out of them.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR TOME OR MONEY AT THIS RESTAURANT !

Not only was the atmosphere sophisticated, and the food excellent; our server (Anthony) was exceptional. Friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable about the menu, he took care of us and made us feel like we were his only table. I would not only recommend Fleming's (my petite filet and loaded baked potato were delicious), but I would also recommend asking to sit in Anthony's section. Oh, and make sure you try the F-17 Sauce, Fleming's own house-made steak sauce. It's tangy and sweet, and so much better than anything I ever poured out of a bottle. The only thing missing from the Fleming's experience is the opportunity to enjoy a great cigar after one's meal. This is the sort of meal that practically demands a fine cigar afterward.

Good ambiance and the service was very good, with pleasant staff. We ordered the Sunday prime rib special, which ended up being more like a choice rib special. The meat was only OK, certainly to prime grade. The side creamed spinach was OK, but the asparagus was overcooked and the tough ends were not trimmed. The dinner felt like a loss leader type of deal, which is too bad, b/c it is a nice restaurant.

This is the second time in a row that I have ordered an 8oz filet mignon and been very disappointed. Very gristly. It's frustrating to spend $46 for an inferior piece of meat. Next time I will try seafood... The burata was sensational though. The sautéed mushrooms were tasteless. Great ambience but a disappointing evening overall.

The food was exceptional! It is a really upscale restaurant, but preserves the "Silicon Valley casual" feel. We arrived just before closing, and were among the last diners to finish, but we got exceptional service from all the staff. We will definitely return to enjoy their food and service again.

Service was great. Food was tasty. All as usual.
Did not like the sliced baked potato that came with the prixe fixed filet mignon meal (underdone but one of our party liked it that way).
Amazing experience as usual. We'll be back.
