Not upto par.
If you've been to Flemings in other cities then pass on SLC
The service was adequate at best and the kitchen wasn't that good. The green beens were over cooked and the carrots were under cooked. We ordered two steaks, both cooked the same way, had to send one back for being under cooked
Neither the staff nor the management came by to see if the steaks were properly cooked the second time
New is not Better.
We are longtime patrons of Fleming's but will not be frequenting the establishment too often now. Michael is missed and Susan is a snot. She really has no people skills. The place is too pricey for what you get. The wine list is just so-so
that Fleming's gets such high marks speaks to SLC's gastronomic immaturity. the service was adequate, if not obtrusive. the food was average--the salads contained lettuce with brown edges, the sides were average at best, and the steaks weren't too different from what you might find at Outback. I will give it another try before writing it off completely, but Fleming's is nothing special.
Not Going Back.
This was our third time at Flemings. We had thought it was rather pricey the first two times, but the impeccable service and interesting tastes and presentation had retained our business. However, last night will be the last time we visit Flemings. It appears they have changed chefs and, possibly, management.
Our food last night turned out to be not nearly as good as the food we could get at the Outback. It was greasy. It was lackluster. The filet mignon was cooked right, but was quite dry and without flavor. The Cesar salad was pathetic - drowned in heavy dressing with inedible, grease-soaked, tough croutons.
The asparagus was almost inedible - with dry tips and slick with grease!! Actually the greasiness of the food was very HIspanic in presentation.
The clincher was the server who seemed to have been better suited to working at Dennys. Gone was the special treatment, the caring and impecable butler-type presentation we had experienced on our two prior visits that seemed to help justify the price. No, our server last night was something you'd expect at a diner. When she cleared the table of food particles on two separate occasions (with her fingers no less!) she left conspicious bits of food on the white tablecloth which we ended up having to clear ourselves.
In short, Flemings has significantly dropped in quality and presentation, making it a poor value - a one-star restaurant with 5-star prices. We will not return.
wow are you kidding.
I love steak and i love to take my wife to nice good restaurants but after reading all the great reviews and finally going to this restaurant i was very dissapointed. dont get me wrong the food was good but not any better that a ruby river or a barbeque in my back yard. I dont mind paying these prices for a great meal but come on. i think for the money carvers is your best bet or even drive up the road to ruby river and save the money.
Excellent Filet Mignon.
My guest and I both ordered the filet mignon and we weren't disappointed. We were seated promptly and our waitress was very pleasant and attentive. Other reviews complained about how their meat was cooked. If you pay attention to the guide that is in the menu, you get your meat cooked the way you like it. If you order based on the "typical" scale, your meat will probably be cooked less than you like (i.e. medium rare in most restaurants leaves a little pink....medium rare at Fleming's leaves some red). The taste of the food was excellent. The restaurant is pricey though. Sides are not included with the meat, so it is easy to ring up a tab that is over $100. That does not include the wine.
Prime beef, a comfortable atmosphere and an extensive, user-friendly wine list are the signatures of this upscale steakhouse.. In Short With a decor of dark wood, leather upholstery and soft lighting, this clubby steakhouse has a warm, upscale feel. The menu's focus is prime beef (aged up to four weeks), from bone-in rib eye and filet mignon to New York strip drizzled with bearnaise sauce. Classic seafood offerings include lobster tails, steamed crab legs and wild Alaskan salmon; sides, served a la carte, include baked potato and chipotle mac and cheese.
Best Steak in town.
I love this place, I hate snobby trendy places that don't have real class, Flemings does. Our waiter even made my picky husband happy by butterfly cutting and cooking his steak to death, all with a smile on his face and not a bit of attitude. I love the garlic mash and the creme brulee is the best I've had anywhere using vanilla bean. Quality ingredients, posh enough for anyone and a wonderful bar.
Way too pricey for the product..
My wife and I went to Fleming's in South Gate about a year ago (2006). The food was OK, the steak was good, but not above expectations. However, the prices were ridiculous. The price was about average for a good steak house, except at Fleming's, that included only the meat, nothing else. By the time you pay $7.50 for a baked potatoe, then extra for a drink and a salad, you are looking at a $120.00 dinner. I did not think it was worth it. Other places have steaks just as juicy and tender and guess what, salad and sides are included in the price. We tried Ruth Cris's also and was similarly disappointed. Same thing as Fleming's, overpriced. Unless you have money to throw away, look elsewhere.
EJones4411 is a liar and an old employee that used to work there!, and was let go!.
Susan Shrum is an amazing operating partner that does not have a mean bone in her! I am a Magnum Member, what they call me there, (VIP) and she has always been great. I promise you that if you go there, you will be greated by an amazing staff and friendly manager! P.S. the food is Fantastic!
