friendly service, great steak, nice place, pretty loud atmostphere, outstanding food, great experience, much quieter smaller room
the most unique and friendly place ever. If you're looking for a nice place to dine with a upbeat yet sophisticated atmosphere, this is the place to go. From the host's that greet you with smiling faces the second you walk in, to the thourough servers who answer just about any question you could ask, and give their 110% to making your dining experience as good as it gets! Their food is the "melt in your mouth" kind of food, that makes it hard to set down your fork, and not to forget their generous selection of wine, by the glass and the bottle. If you're looking for a nice place to celebrate an occasion, or just someplace to hang in the bar and have a few drinks with friends, this place definately accomodates all needs. My experience at flemings only made me want to return time and time again to come.
Horrendous Dining Experience. We made a reservation, arrived on time and were seated. From that point forward the evening was horrible. Our wait person took our drink orders and then did not return for 15 minutes (we were there early and at that point only about 1/3 of their tables were full). When the drinks came mine was wrong and after 3 attempts and my offer to order something else they got it right. It was another long delay until our order was taken. During this time we found it almost impossible to speak with each other over the loud music. We saw other tables where people were clearly having trouble conversing over the music. We asked the wait person to turn it down and he said he would ask the manager. Then as time went on the music got louder and the wait person then told us that it was on a sensor and as the noise level of diners increased so did the music volume and he said again he would ask the manager to turn it down. Finally our salads came and at this point the music was almost painful. We asked again and then a manager moved us to a "private dining room" in the back where it was not so loud and was filled with others who didn't like the music. We had ordered wine that never came. We asked about it and she said "oh yes he said you were going to order some - we had, but then ordered it again. This took another 15 or so minutes to arrive. Our entrees arrived and we were then asked if we would like bread - the bread normally delivered with the salads. Our steaks were not properly cooked and one was a wellington with a pastry crust. This came back soggy from the reheat. A manager offered us free desserts since the dough was soggy. I had ordered a second glass of wine that never came so when she came back by I ordered white chocolate godiva instead since I had finished dinner. That came and was a brown color not white and she said the bar tender had put cho syrup in it - not my order. In the end a manager paid our bill, but even so I would NEVER go back!
Great restaurant for special occasions. We just celebrated our two-year wedding anniversary in this restaurant last night. Let me just say this: we were treated just like newlyweds! The staff was extremely attentive, we made reservations specifically for the occasion and were taken to a private room surrounded by their wine collection, food was awesome (especially their Fleming's Salad and Creme Brulee). Overall, we had an awesome experience! If you're going to this restaurant for a special occasion, be sure to specify when you make your reservations and they'll make it special for you.
Best cheese spread ever!. Last weekend I had dinner at Fleming's. Everything was great, especially the toasts and cheese spreads that come with your dinner. They had a decent selection of wines. Some were over priced and some were even under priced. The deserts were also good. The steak was good, but not great. The quality of the steak was fine, but the seasonings could have been better. The sauce was wonderful. Overall it was a great experience. The staff could not have been nicer. I suggest going early because when it got busy, the service got slower.
This is my first review on a restaurant but after my experience at Fleming's Steakhouse Woodland Hills it has prompted me to write this.
From the word go, the service was outstanding, prompt and friendly. They seem to go out of their way to make sure you are happy and being looked after, always topping up your drinks etc. We were given a basket of toasted breads with dips/spreads (two types) very tasty. The menu has 4 pages of wines from all over the world and the waiter was more that helpful in assisting us on a selection for our desired taste. He also handed us another page of very fine wines to choose from. You can order by the glass or bottle.
The food menu has a wide range of starters, salads, steaks, seafood, combination options and side dishes plus deserts if you can fit it in. We are not big eaters so decided not to have any starters and went straight for the mains. We both chose the Filet Mingon 12oz for me and 8oz for my wife. Both were cooked to perfection (med-rare and med), mouth watering, flavorsome and very tender, it was like you were cutting through butter. For sides we ordered the shoestring potatoes with salt and pepper and the asparagus. The shoestring potatoes were very thin, a bit curly, very tasty and plentiful. The asparagus was divine. After dinner we were not able to fit the desert in so relaxed with our bottle of wine. The waiter happily poured the remainder of the wine back in the bottle and a little carry bag for us to take home.
Prices some would argue are a little on the expensive side with steaks low to mid $30, average side around $8 which seems quite reasonable, but when you get that type of quality in food and service, who wouldn?t pay an extra few bucks. For $150 we had drinks to start with, a top quality meal, great service and a top bottle of wine. A night we really enjoyed. We?ll be back for sure!
Just an overall wonderful experience everytime. Every visit is pure delight! The service is cordial and attentive; glasses are refilled promptly, the table is de-crumbed between courses and all items arrive in perfectly timed fashion. The starter of wine infused cheese spreads is amazing + addictive (and much better than the bread served wth dinner). You cannot go wrong with the prime rib dinner, especially since it includes salad, side and dessert for just under $30. I normally find prime rib too fatty for my tastes and though I've had it at Houston's + Lawry's I've always been disappointed (though this could be just a matter of personal taste). Fleming's cut is lean, large, tender and immensely flavorful. Fave sides are the creamed corn (very rich with a bit of a spicy kick) and grilled asparagus. The crabcakes and calamari are both well seasoned and uniquely tasty and the lava cake dessert served with both ice cream and whipped cream is beyond words good. If you're in the neighborhood don't pass this one up!
EXCELLENT STEAK AND VEGETABLE BASKET. VERY GOOD RESTAURANT. THE FOOD IS DELICIOUS, AND THE SERVICE IS GREAT. VEGETABLE BASKET IS TO DIE FOR
Good steak, good service. GOOD STEAK and awesome Lobster Tempura Appetizer. Loud environment. Not as good as RUTH'S CHRIS. :-)
Held a 20 person corporate party, bad customer service. I spent over 3 grand @ flemings and ther person I dealt with gave me more excuses and "we can't do that" then they gave me creative solutions. They forced us to set menu's where each party goer had the choice of only one type of steak. Isn't this a steak house?!?!? On top of that, one guest's child order something not on the set menu and they had the nerve to charge me an extra $8 after I paid them almost 3 grand. I would never hold a large event at Flemings again.
User review by martinkent. When we made the reservation, we told them it was our anniversary, and when we got there they treated us like we were family. From the hostess, to the maitre 'd, to the wine steward, to the waiter, to the bus boy, everyone was attentive, gracious and cheerful. They could tell we were in love, and this was a special night, so they actually seated us in a special room where they keep the wine, off the main dining room. The food was delicious, large portions, and they even treated us to creme brulee for dessert! Highly recommend the mixed grill. Will definitely go back.
