Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar
A group of us dining midweek at Fleming’s recently were mesmerized by a lonely petit filet ($39) on a rather large plate served only with thirty-three festive flecks of parsley. Forget that this filet was ordered medium rare and it came out something close to Ash Wednesday. To be fair, we were a large party, and serving a steak prepared as ordered can be problematic when cooking for a group. Much better was the salmon with a light BBQ glaze ($33), served over sautéed mushrooms. Sides are all ala carte, the norm for most classic steak houses. Good choices were the Fleming’s house salad ($9), sides of green beans ($9.50) and garlic mashed potatoes ($9). A loaf of herb bread with two interesting spreads was a hit.
In spite of the size of our group, service was upbeat and friendly. We weren’t exactly wowed by the food, but the service and ambiance made for a generally pleasant dining experience. While it may just have been an off-night for the grill cook on the steaks, there are better steaks at these prices around town. We’ve been told a Sunday Prime Rib special is very good here and worthy of standing in line (reservations are highly recommended). Fleming’s offers an impressive 100 different wines available by the glass.
