Small problem about the reservation but we sat outside so it was fine. Steak and Lamb were excellent. Loaded Potato was OK but far too Expensive as was the Spinnach. We enjoyed our meal and will be back. Service was very good.

Great steak house. I think I liked this place better than Ruth's Chris. Steaks were cooked perfectly. I had a filet and shrimp special that was awesome. The lobster and shrimp potatoes were decadent. We brought our own wine, $25 cork fee per bottle but worth it.

We went to Fleming's for a birthday dinner. The staff was aware of it and congratulated us. Fleming is a very traditional steak house with the wood paneling, glass doored wine cellar and also a big window into their kitchen. The steaks were a bit pricy but was very good. They also have some other dishes including a nice tempura... More

I have been there now 4 times and it was always a top notch experience. Service is always the best. I had both steak and fish entrees. Last time I tried beef short ribs and sides. Lobster mac is a must. Highly recommended....

This new restaurant is located at 531 Jackson St. It has a reasonable prix fix menu. Only two selections from each course, but the menu changes every few days, depending on what is fresh. Service is excellent with well trained servers who are very knowledgeable. $20 corkage is very fair, although the wine list is quite extensive.

The food was delicious, we both had the Petite Filet Mignon, fantastic flavor, perfectly cooked and melted in our mouths. The Chipotle mac and cheese was delicious with a hint of the spicy flavor. Our waiter, Peter, was fantastic and told us about the best night club either of us have been to in years.

Visited for some drinks and a late night dinner at the bar. Great bartenders and decent choices for quick late night bites. The Lobster Lettuce Wraps were great as were the Fish Tacos.

Loud and busy place on weekends. I felt I (as single diner) was rushed. Service was very good. Food was not as good as other Fleming's I have eaten at.

We went there to celebrate an anniversary (as we have done in the past). This place is outstanding!!! The service is impeccable!! The food is fantastic. This is a pricey place to go but it is worth every penny. Can't wait to go back.
