Excellent prime rib
The prime rib was cooked as ordered and with the included salad, side dish and dessert large enough to serve two. We did split the meal and the server was accommodating in extra plates.

27th Anniversary celebration
This Flemings was great on service and Chris the manager was amazing along with Rebecca the Bar waitress! we ordered two lobster tails, both were overdone and crispy! Not good, but Chris did comp them and offered several other options including cooking them again, but we refused based upon we just we plain full after eating snacks in the bar for 1.5 hrs!! (Rebecca was great!) Hopes this helps Flemings get better in the Kitchen since we love to celebrate our anniversary at Flemings every year and have been doing so for 11 straight so far.
The Price of Excellence
My wife and I used to live by the Fleming's in La Jolla and have never been disappointed with the service or the food, whether during happy hour at their bar or for a full meal in their main room. This time, was no exception. We had the French onion soup, a salad, short rib, creamed spinach, and filet mignon. As a married couple, we share all the plates. I usually wind up eating a slightly larger portion because my wife can't eat quite as much. Nonetheless, we savored each and every bite. Our waiter treated us like royalty.

Had 2 dinners at Fleming's. First one was awful - overcooked steak, 1 hour waiting for a new one, etc. My next experience was better, but not as good as I expected (I gave them another chance). The short rib was just ok. The wagyu ribeye was nice, but sometimes hard to chew.

Normally, we can always rely on Flemings for a great steak dinner. On this night, there were four of us and two of our steaks were brought out way overdone. It was too bad because it did not leave a good impression for this location. The staff was very generous with their apologies and offered to cook new steaks. Not wanting to be wasteful, we kept the steaks and the restaurant comped them instead. Everything else was wonderful- salads, Flemings potatoes and chocolate lava cake dessert!
My daughter and her husband went to celebrate his birthday. Our waitress Angela was very attentive. The food was great and we had a great time.
Alway Enjoy Flemings Downtown!
Th food is always great, atmosphere is excellent, service good....one of my favorites
Had an early dinner so wasn't crowded. Really liked that you could look at the wines and get the descriptions of them on their tablet before ordering, it was very helpful in the ordering process. The service was excellent and the food was perfect.
My wife and I ordered a Filet and NY Strip. They were cooked perfectly and had an excellent taste. The NY Strip had what appeared to be just a little extra fat for this cut of meat, but the portion was generous, so even with cutting the fat off, there was a significant portion of meat that remained. The Flemming's potatos were excellent, as were the mushrooms. The Flemming's House Salad was good. The Caesar Salad was adequate, but in fairness, we're Caesar perfectionists. There was no room for desert, which is a testament to the portion sizes. Next time we'll eat a bit lighter so we can sample what the desert menu has to offer.

Thought the steak wasn't as good as it normally is. Less of a sear than I usually see at Flemings.
First Date at Flemings
I took a girl on a first date here and the overall experience was outstanding. The food was delicious, and came out right on time. Our waitress was kind and helpful. The two food items I recommend are the pork belly appetizer and for entrée, the braised short ribs. Melt in your mouth. The only problem I had that night was waiting for my second drink. It took forever for me to get it. I'm not sure if it was the waitress or the bar, but by the time I got it (after I asked for it again of course), my date had already finished her drink. Other than that we had a great time and wonderful meal
Pricey but worth it
We started out with Seafood Tower (cold prawns, crab and coldwater lobster tail) it was excellent. My bride had a large filet with lobster topping and I had dry aged ribeye with lobster topping. Both were perfect medium rare, and seasoned just right. For sides we had asparagus and Flemings potatoes (au gratin with a touch of jalapeño); both were superb. We had the cheesecake for dessert....I have had cheesecake all over the world, and this was the best; incredibly light , creamy and not overly sweet. In short the perfect meal.

Well we visited several restaurants during our 4day stay in San Diego. Flemings was by far our favorite. If you visit try and request David Kachigian as your waiter. He aside from the food made it an awesome night.
Service was outstanding! The Food was great, however the salad was not good at all which took the experience down level. What you pay deserves the best and this time it failed. I marked I would recommend it but have reservations.
We were disappointed in the noise level. We were there for our 29th wedding anniversay. We had a couple with a child behind us that was using his utensil to hit the plate and we had a couple of younger people across from us that had been drinking and were very loud. My husband's prime rib (his favorite cut of meat) was okay, not what we expected from Flemings. He has had better. The staff went above and beyond and we were very impressed by that.
We had the Prime Rib that they offered Sunday, i a few dollars more expensive. We had a good meal. They were out of onion rings as a side., which is suprising.

my only complaint was having to wait about 30 minutes for my reservation after my arrival, in which was already 5 minutes late.
Noisy and rushed
The expensive food was good, but the environment in the restaurant was noisy, packed, and felt pushed to clear our table for the next group. Lots of other fine steak houses in San Diego to go to first.

Service was good and the food was excellent. I wished that opened table communicated the special notes that I made when I made the reservation.
My first time at Flemings
Worst valentine's dinner date ever ! Although this is what is considered one of San Diego's best steak houses it was horrible! My wife's Filet with lobster ordered medium came late as well as extremely well done ! Had to refire the steak then after 16 min. came back this time rare. My beautiful wife ate around the edges where it was palatable and even after talking to the Manager I left with a $300 + bill.
Don't go on 'holidays'.
Although we love Fleming's, we found it to not be up to the high quality standards of our previous visits. We DID go on Valentine's day, which happens to be a Birthday for one of our family members. After dinner we all decided it's not the place to go when there is a holiday involved. I found our meal (Prime Rib) to be just 'okay'. My slice was HUGE while another person's was average. (We traded). One member had the 'special' which included Salmon. To them the Salmon was dry. We had a long wait for our meal and even longer wait for dessert. Another interesting note is that the 'Sunday' special (Prime Rib, side, salad, dessert) was a good $10 more this time than it had been the previous month. We will return, just not on a holiday, as we feel Fleming's over-books at those times and really can't accommodate the extra crowd.

Flemings is one of our favorite restaurants but do not recommend for Valentine's Day, service super slow & they ran out of ribeye steaks. Our reservation was at 3:30 & food made it to our table at 5pm, very bad experience. Extremely disappointed.
Poor Customer Service
I booked a reservation to dine a week in advance. When I arrived I was told that they were running about 35 mins behind. I made my way to the bar where my date and I had to squeeze into 2 bar stools stuck in the corner. Why the stools are there is crazy you have to pull the stools all the way out to the isle because the space is so narrow. After waiting for half an hour for a table we were seated right next to the bar so we could bumped into throughout the entire meal. Not the best atmosphere to have a romantic dinner. For the price it would have been nice to at least be allowed to enjoy the steak.
Still one of my favorite steak houses!
Like I said still one place that does not disappoint. I know that when I have a need for a steak that is medium, I will get medium. Delicious flavor and marbling on the steak. The sides have always been really tasty as well. The wine list is enormous and should have one for every wine connoisseur. When Christmas or my birthday comes around a Flemings gift card is the easiest and satisfying gift to get me. Thank you Flemings for being a first class-dependable restaurant.
The server was great, very polite. Manager came over to greet us and even gave us a 25 dollar gift card. Food quality was great. I will return.

Staff was amazing and very accommodating for our group. As usual the food was superb.
Special occasion not as special as it should be...
Been to Flemmings many times in CA and AZ. I was hoping for a special night to celebrate my pregnant wife's birthday. Even though I noted this in the reservation... staff forgot. Bone-in Filet was ordered Medium Well... delivered RARE. This Flemmings is normally better than this. I hope it was just an off night for the staff and kitchen.
I am a fan of Flemings and this location did not disappoint. The food was excellent...perfectly prepared, full of flavor and served hot. I was especially thrilled that they served the champagne infused brie with the bread. It is my favorite and has been replaced at some of the other locations. The waiter, Jimmy, was very friendly and professional and even called for my car at the end of the meal without my asking. I will certainly return.
