Fleming's Steakhouse - Palo Alto Ratings and Reviews

Wayyyy to expensive for meat and potatoes. My gf's steak was supposed to be medium well and it wasn't even near that. Oh well, live and learn. We had a reservation for 9 and still waited had to wait for over a half an hour. Definitely not worth the price nor the time. The cocktails were insanely expensive as well.

Food was delicious. Service was very good. They kept water filled and checked in just the right amount. When we wanted to stay and chat after dinner (which was close to 9 pm) they let us know we were welcome to stay as long as we wanted. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant. They had a great system for making the reservation and sending reminders. They also sent a thank you email which was nice.

We went for my wife's birthday dinner. The service was great. We asked to move tables, no problem. Attentive service. Cocktails came quickly and were good. Specials explained well. We had bisque, spinach salad, and two "small plates". My Ahi was excellent. My wife's short ribs were soggy. No problem, they replaced hers with Filet small plate and COMPED them both. We were not expecting that. They also gave my wife a complimentary lava cake AND four hand-made truffles. I tasted the Filet and it was outstanding. We were very happy with the entire experience and will return. We have been there before and had steaks. They do a great job but are very pricey.

We were celebrating my daughter's promotion. Francisco was our server and brought out a beautiful dessert that said "congratulations." The manager, Ashley, made sure everything was great. We dine at Flemings on a regular basis. Happy hour is always good and always a pleasure when Olivia is working! Thanks for a memorable dinner!

I was craving a good steak while staying in the peninsula. I had their filet mignon. It was properly aged, simply prepared (salt and pepper mostly) , and cooked perfectly (thin carmelized char outside). Service was good. Their mixed salad with lemon vinigarette was a bit bland for my taste. Their iceberg wedge is served with thick slabs of bacon which was too sweet and hard-have to bite it and cut it.

all was fine just the hostess was very confused put our friends who arrived first at a table than when we arrived put us at the other dining room we ended up waiting 15 minutes than they realized that we are waiting .. not great for organization actually never happened to me in any restaurant

Food was great, service was very uneven with long periods of time between seeing our waiter. The manager was on the dining room floor helping out and he seemed to really be making an effort to fill in for a less than attentive waiter. We also waited an unusually long time for our main dish - we think they forgot about our order. Although we didn't complain about the less than attentive service by the waiter or the delay in the food, we were offered a free desert for the delayed food by the manager which was a nice touch. So overall not too bad an experience, however we expected a little more from a restaurant of this caliber. We probably won't return.

We were there on a Friday night. The bar area was shear chaos during Happy Hour. No seats available so had to stand while we waited for our table. Table service was mixed. Servers went MIA for stretches. Food overall was very good but our ravioli appetizer arrived cold. Our server, however, was gracious enough to comp the dish. I am not sure I would spend that kind of monay again for a loud and chaotis restaurant with inconsistent service.

Steaks cooked to perfection! Large salad and sides. Would have preferred a soft-bread dinner loaf to the crunchy crust. Service was terrific and no hints from the staff that they wanted to turn over the table (my date and I were there 4hrs!), seems that is built into the pricing.

Had a nice Sunday prime rib special dinner, couldn't be a better deal. Included in the special was a choice of salad, one side, prime rib and dessert. More than one could possibly eat. All were quality dishes and the service was perfect.

Another awesome birthday celebration at Fleming's for my sons! The staff was very accommodating with a special nod to Anthony our server, and the food was perfect. The steaks were each cooked to perfection and our sides of creamed spinach and brussel sprouts were delicious! We enjoyed a leisurely time even though is was a busy Saturday night; we were never rushed. We will definitely be back again for the next special occasion.

Server did not bring soup that was ordered, actually forgot! Waited over 40 minutes for food and it was over priced. This is the second time we have been here and both times food was forgotten and order took long to arrive. We have been to many many quality restaurants and this one is off our list and we won't return.

Fleming's is always consistent. They have a professional wait staff that provide the service you would expect for a high end steakhouse. From appetizers to dessert, the team paces the arrival of your courses so that you can really relax and enjoy a great meal. Worth the price for a nice meal out.

We've dined at Fleming's many times...always pleased with the service and quality of food. The crab cakes were fresh and loaded with crab, not filled with bread/breadcrumbs. The chopped wedge salad was a generous portion and perfectly dressed. Our steaks were cooked as ordered and the quality of the meat was excellent! The creme brulee was perfectly toasted to a light golden brown and was sooo good!

Food was great. We ordered appetizers and took our time in ordering our dinner. When we did, it came pretty quickly. The steaks were huge and so as the side dishes, which would have been enough for 4 people, especially the Flemings au-gratin potatoes. The dinner entrees are priced high but that's most fancy steakhouses are. I ordered the scallops and shrimps over grits as a small serving, which was perfect. Otherwise, I would not have been able to finish it. The grits was creamy. Overall, we enjoyed our dinner.

My husband and I came here for a weekly date night. The service, from start to finish, was very good. Our food was delicious and the atmosphere relaxed, if not totally cozy. This makes it better for business meetings and work related gatherings - the dining room was busy but not crowded - so you could have a conversation.

Went to Flemings to celebrate a birthday dinner party with several friends. Had reservations and was seated immediately. The place has a very modern decor and would be appropriate for any anniversary, birthday, or other celebration. It would also be THE PLACE for a fancy business lunch or dinner in Palo Alto. The food is upscale and there is an extensive wine list for the wine lovers. I have been to Flemings several times before and have always had good food and great service there. It is also probably the best happy hour place in the entire South Bay.

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.

I had been to Flemings for special events with big groups, and I decided to take my gal pals for the new brunch on Sunday. it was very nice and the food was good. the Sonoma Sparkler was a nice change from the mimosas with the orange juice, wine and passion fruit flavor. the service was attentive and very helpful as we had some guests with food allergies. our group of 7 had a lovely oval table and we enjoyed our afternoon greatly. we had all the desserts and enjoyed several starters but the main entrees were a treat with the filet benedict, beef hash, sea bass, chicken and waffles, custom omelets. Big YUM!

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
