Fleming's Steakhouse - Palo Alto Ratings and Reviews
Our server, I think his name was John, was fantastic. Very attentive, not pushy, kept a great flow to the dinner. Overall the food was simply overpriced. My husband and I both ordered the aged ribeye at $61.95 each. For this price I would expect an AMAZING piece of meat. The meat did not have a nice sear on the outside and actually had a bit of a steamed texture to it and the flavor was good, but not worthy of the price tag. We each also had a salad, also good but over dressed.
I have been here for Happy Hour and the experience was very different, the service was pretty bad, we sat at the bar and the bartender had no personality what-so-ever. The food and drinks were well priced, flavorful and the variety was great. I would come back for Happy Hour
While the food was good, I felt that is was very overpriced for the service and quality of food. Everything is an extra charge, including adding a rub onto your steak. Shouldn't the seasoning be included in the price? I ordered a glass of wine and was asked if I wanted a 6 or 9 oz pour, for presumably more money for a bigger pour. At an upscale steakhouse it does not seem to be appropriate for them to be nickel and dime you. For the prices I expected a better level of service and a more refined experience.
The food was good but the service made us forget about the food. Our server Christina P. made us feel extremely rushed it was so uncomfortable! She never asked if we wanted to hear the specials we over heard another server talking about the lobster Mac and cheese which was pretty good as well. We ordered the cheesecake for dessert which she brought out along with the check we all took a bite of the cheesecake and she came asking if we were ready to pay. We will not be going back I'd rather continue to drive further out then to get treated the way we did!
I came here with my friend to celebrate and told our waiter Anthony C. The worst part about our dining experience, once the server brought out our steaks, he asked us to immediately cut down the center so he could see if it was cooked right. I refused and let my steak rest. Also, once Anthony opened our bottle of wine, he never poured for us when our glasses were empty as he stood next to the wine bottle asking us how were were doing. We never received water refills until after the check was dropped off. I already knew I wanted the lava cake but he never gave us advanced warning like how all the other servers usually do so we waited with nothing on the table for 20 minutes.
We went on a Sunday for an early dinner, and had the prime rib dinner special, which is a fabulous value (salad, entree, side, and dessert!!!) for fabulous food. The salad is a good size, and so are the sides. Even though we had to pack these to take home because we were full, we finished dessert on the spot (fresh berries with chantilly cream and creme brulee). The menu leans to seafood, which I don't eat, but the prime rib dinner is worth every penny! About 5 people waited on us, and the manager for the evening came out to check on our meal personally. Very attentive staff.
I really enjoyed our dining experience here. The environment is very pleasant, modern, and spacious. The waitress was very helpful and friendly. We loved the sea bass dish, which was fresh, tender, and flavorful. The lobster roll was s a bit of disappointment for both its quality and quantity. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.
For me, the best way to gauge the quality of a restaurant is how well they cook their steaks. I asked for a medium rare ribeye, and I got medium well on the outside and rare throughout. The creamed spinach had way too much mayonnaise in it. The service was great, but I didn't feel it was anywhere near worth the price. Probably won't come back.
I had reserved it for a double date on Valentine night and they had marked our V night sooo bad .
The salad in valentine menu supposedly need to be pretty and nice and appetitive .. but instead was o posit by far . Worse salad I had ever ever in my whole life ...bunch of old lettuce was throw in the place which I took picture of its
Also Valentine menu had fillet which I had order medium and came soooooo dry ...
anyway people don't waste ur time and money .. if u r planning going to steak house choose a good one . Like Alexander, By the sea, Sundance...,
Also we ordered 2 cocktails . It was a only surgery juice . No vodka and nothing .. when we asked to add a vodka shot they said they will charge again ..
Great looking room for a steakhouse. Appetizers nice, nothing too special. However the prime aged beef was not that great. Had prime aged sirloin strip, rare, that was excessively tough and lacked flavor. Rather disappointing since the price point demanded much better.
Sides of vegetables were good in flavor and quantity. Wine list is extensive with few value choices.
Overall a very nice atmosphere but not a true steak aficionados place.
The service was exceptional which was not expected on such a busy night. The fillet was cooked exactly to order ("rare plus") but not quite as flavorful as usual. I think next time I will try an added rub. I have not done that in past visits. The sliced fillet was perfect.
Kevin, the manager was hands on, dropping by the table twice to see that our steaks were done properly and that we enjoyed our meal. Filet mignon with bernaise sauce on the side, sautéed Brussel sprouts with bacon, and creamed spinach were delicious. Highly recommend a red wine called Predator from Lodi. An old Vine Zinfandel that is full-bodied and complex plus it's only $40 a bottle ! Also by the glass !
Headed to Fleming's for creative drinks and appies with friends. First of all, you can actually HEAR in the bar/restaurant. BIG PLUS. Secondly, our server, Anthony K., was fabulous...delightful and loaded with great recommendations. The drinks and food were delicious. We'll be back very soon.
Came for the Sonoma Sunday brunch- restaurant was not full as it was 1:45. We were seated right away and then waiting about 10 minutes for a server to approach us. She asked if we would like their complimentary mimosas so said yes. They were a passionfruit mimosa which tasted nice- not very much champagne but it was free so can't complain. We both ordered the prime rib dip. Our busboy was very nice and actually we saw him more than the server. After about another 20 minute delay we got our food. Not sure why it took so long as the restaurant was not crowded. The first thing we noticed is there wasn't a side of au jus which is traditional for a french dip. It seemed like the prime rib had been dipped in it and then put on the roll. The meat was medium well and several fatty pieces. Just ok- not much flavor. Fries were good though. Just expected it to have more flavor and not so fatty. Slow service and just ok food- I really was expecting it to be a better "brunch".
Took our son out for a special night before heading back to college. Reception was pleasant, waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. However food was only average and price was astronomical - if I get a $60 steak it should be perfect - mine was not even hot. Waiter said "be careful with the plate" because of temperature but it was luke warm. Had a soggy salad to start, food was OK for a mid level place but for the prices they charge no way.
