Richmond >Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar
Ordinary Food and Service, Over Priced for What You Get. Average filet and below average salmon. Baked potato and mashed potatoes were also very ordinary. Service was average to slow, even though there were only a few others having dinner. Better food and service at their cheaper chain, Outback - and, just about all of the other chains (Topekas, Hops, even Lone Star). There was nothing really bad, just nothing great either, and certainly nothing to justify their prices. Don't understand how they get away with it when there are so many other places to go in the area, although at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, they were almost empty and maybe others are also going elsewhere. Finally, it really is distractive to have the flatware immediately removed, and the table wiped down, after each course.
Not worth the wait!. We had reservations (about 5 or 6 weeks in advance) for aour anniversary. We arrived a few minutes early and were told our table would be ready "in a few minutes." We decided to have a drink at the bar. The bartender was so busy he was literally throwing ice (Some landed in my lap.) trying to keep up. We were finally seated 1 hour and 15 minutes later. Needless to say, but this ruined the entire meal. The only saving grace (as the food was only mediocre) was our wonderful waitress. She was the only bright spot in the entire evening.
Amazing dinner in the private diningroom!. We had an amazing dinner for fourteen people in one of the private dining rooms. Fleming's is great for groups. I had heard that it can be noisy but the private room was quiet and we had great conversation. The wine list is the best in Richmond. I had a different wine with each course and the steaks are heaven. I can't wait to go back!
Great steak!. Flemings is quite pricey, but the steaks are seriously great. We had a bone-in filet mignon that was to die for, and a NY strip that was very good. Unfortunately, the side dishes are ala carte and nothing special. The wine list is amazing and probably one of the largest in the area, tons of wines by the glass to choose from which is nice if your the only wine drinker. Personally, I liked the decor and atmosphere at Flemings, but wouldn't expect an intimate dinner there as it can be a bit loud and busy.
Very nice!. There is nothing we could say about this restaurant that was not good! Some of the best prime rib we had ever had! We will go back!
Excellent Food and Wine. Fleming's is an excellent restaurant. The steak I had could quite literally be described as melt in your mouth. The noise level is a bit high, but if you go with just one other person it is perfectly easy to converse. The wine selection was amazing and the servers know what to recommend with each dish. There are wines for every budget. It may seem expensive, but it is worth every penny.
Too Noisy and Too Much $. The only good point of Flemings is its excellently prepared steaks. Its incredible noise level makes conversation virtually impossible except for shouting to the person next to you. Wine is two or three times what it should be, and the rest of the menu is pricey, too. Could call this an expense account restaurant but I would never take a business client here because of the inability to engage in conversation, given the noise level.
