My wife, Cherie, and I were with friends at Flemings on September 12 celebrating my 70th birthday. We were visiting from Emeril Isle but our friends, Jack & Kathy Dentinger, have been to Flemings numerous times. Our server was Megan who did an absolutely phenomenal...job. She knew everything about the menu, was very professional and personable. We had an opportunity to meet the manager working that evening, Dakota. Dakota likewise, was very friendly, personable and knew all things you’d ever want to know about the Flemings restaurant operation and service, especially the various wines. Both Dakota and Megan are excellent representatives of the Flemings brand and restaurant business. Would highly recommend Flemings. Danny & Cherie Shell Emerald Isle, NC 28594 443-536-8664More

Everything was perfect! The steak was tender and well seasoned, wonderful service (Elliot treated us like royalty!), and the ambiance was perfect!! We could not have chosen a better place to celebrate our anniversary. They decorated our table and everyone wished us a Happy Anniversary....So many nice touches that made our night special. The food was prepared perfectly and the dessert was excellent. I highly recommend for any occasion!More

We visited the Raleigh location last night for my husband’s birthday. Even though I stated on the reservation that it was my husband Ryan’s birthday and stated it again at our table to our server he forgot and treated me like it was my birthday....My steak was over cooked (I ordered a medium NY strip) and my husband’s steak was under cooked (he ordered a medium well dry aged ribeye) - we think perhaps the server mixed up the orders regarding temperature. At least our server agreed that my steak was over cooked but he seemed surprised when I told him that I wanted to send it back. My next steak arrived 20 minutes later and it was fine. He promised us celebratory champagne and truffles but in the end all we got was a candle on an empty plate which he placed in front of me. It was odd… Even the most basic restaurant will do a dessert for a birthday. It took a while to get the check and when it arrived the pen was out of ink. We will not be back to Fleming’s.More

Best New York Strip Anywhere. Everything about those restaurants is 5 star rated. The service, the decor, the romantic atmosphere and oh My, the food. Top ten all the way. Very extensive wine and drink menu as well. I was thoroughly impressed

We had dinner at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar last night. It was excellent. We were there to celebrate my sons graduation from community college and his acceptance to ECU in the fall. Our waiter Josh was excellent. The restaurant manager Alexander stopped by...our table and introduced himself. He even brought us a large plate of mushrooms. There were four of us. Three of us had steaks and one had the Salmon dinner. Everything was perfect. They do the sides family style so we had cream spinach, Mac and cheese and asparagus. There was more than enough for everyone. The dessert was awesome Key line pie was the best I have ever had. It was a perfect meal and I would definitely plan another special event meal there again.More

We unfortunately had a horrible experience at this location. My wife, our daughter, son-in-law, two young granddaughters and I went for Thanksgiving (and my birthday). From the start we knew something wasn’t right and should have left. Took ~20 minutes to get any service. Another...20 minutes to get our drinks, minus one. Another 10 minutes to get the final drink. Meanwhile, a table near us emptied and then a new group was seated there. We finally ordered, only to have our appetizers arrive after the recently seated table. Same for mains, the other table received their’s before ours. Worse, only one of the sides came with our mains. We let the waiter know immediately we wanted 3 lava cakes for desert (they can take 20 minutes) so we would have them soon after our mains. Sides never arrived. Mains were cleared. We waited for the desert. And waited. Watched 3 lava cakes delivered to the table near us. And waited. Nothing. Finally told the manager who proceeded to tell us “they were just taking a bit longer”. Nope, they were delivered to the wrong table. Finally asked for the check and left. No desert, no sides, piss poor service, just bad all around. Today was my 64th birthday and I can say this is the first time in those 64 years I didn’t leave a tip. Just couldn’t do it. Hope this isn’t typical for this location. Frankly, though, we won’t be back.More

I had dinner here with a few friends while in town for a conference. The restaurant is conveniently located on the same property as Crabtree Valley Mall. The inside of the restaurant is beautiful and reminded me of an upper class 1950's establishment. The tables...are spaced out well, meaning you'll be able to enjoy your company. The food was exceptional! I enjoyed a Korean bulgogi inspired filet with risotto. Honestly, this may have been the best steak I have ever eaten in my life. The prices are well above average, however, when compared with similarly appointed restaurants, they are reasonable. I highly recommend this restaurant.More

My husband and I visited for the first time last night. We were not disappointed! We eat out 1-2 times a week, and are very aware of the current Covid-related service issues at restaurants. Flemings was so on top of everything, you’d never know there...was a pandemic! The food was amazing, and our server (Don) was very attentive. The manager came by and checked on us, and even got us drink refills. We couldn’t have been any happier with our dinner. The prices are a little high, it is a la carte, so be prepared for that. But the food and atmosphere was definitely worth it!More

Let's start with the ambience: Fleming's does a great job of "setting the table." We really enjoyed the gentle buzz of the dining room (I can't even tell you whether there was music or not--if there was, it was very much in the background and...not distracting). The room was just the right temperature (my wife brought along her "restaurant sweater," but didn't need it), the chairs were comfortable, and the table was sized for four with all of our dishes such that we never felt over-crowded. Definitely a white-tablecloth experience. The service: Overall, the service was quite good. Our server was very friendly and helpful, and the rest of the wait staff did a very good job of making our visit as comfortable as possible by topping off our water and clearing used dishes. So it was a bit odd to us that we waited for nearly 15 minutes after placing our drink orders (one sparkling water and three still waters) to receive our drinks--even our appetizer came out within 10 minutes (so...a salty appetizer, and no water???). We were all served our entrees and sides within about 1 minute, so the kitchen and wait staff had that well-coordinated. It was a bit disconcerting when our server showed up within a minute of our receiving our food to ask how the food was (we were still cutting our first bite, so how would we know?), but that's become pretty standard at all sit-down restaurants. If servers asked whether we'd received everything we'd ordered or if there was anything else we needed, that wouldn't be out of place. But it seems that servers (including at Fleming's) are being taught to get a definitive statement about what diners think about the food almost as soon as it's been served (I'm blaming the training, not the servers themselves). I initially made a non-answer, explaining that I hadn't even tasted anything, yet, but she pressed on for some kind of response about whether it was cooked correctly, so I gave her feedback that "it looks right." We did appreciate that we were never made to feel rushed--in fact, at times it seemed like we were actually being slowed down. Some of that was just perceptual, I'm sure, and due to the "course at a time" feel of how the food came out (I should get used to enjoying that, but I'll admit that most of my restaurant experiences have trained me otherwise). Then there were little things like having to ask for a carry-out container three times (once of our server and then twice of other wait staff)--it was well over five minutes before the container finally showed up. This despite there seeming to be no shortage of wait staff--the dining room was only about half full, and there appeared to be over a dozen wait staff visible on the floor at all times. Meanwhile, we were asked several times whether we wanted another drink or dessert (the latter on at least three different table visits by our server). Again, it was all very polite, but I guess one person's feeling well-attended can be another's feeling up-sold. I'm going to admit that my reaction is probably due to my becoming used to the "table turn" rush that we experience at just about all other sit-down restaurants we tend to go to (and having just come back from Myrtle Beach, we had recently gotten that treatment to the max). So you may want to discount this as my not being used to being allowed to have a relaxed meal and conversation (in that sense, it was a lot like the formal meals we had at my Dad's parents' home when I was young). I'll admit that I would probably really enjoy doing this more often. On to the real criticism (and my explanation for the 3 stars on the food and overall scores): My wife's sea bass was very good, and our mashed potatoes and baked(?) brussels sprouts were very nicely cooked. My issue? When you call your establishment a "Prime Steakhouse" and sell a dry-aged ribeye for over $60 (à la carte), you'd better make sure that the steak is a top-flight experience. It wasn't. It wasn't even close. Oh, the flavor was wonderful, and it was cooked just right (medium-rare, with a warm red center). But the quality of the steak (again, a dry-aged ribeye) was not as good as I've gotten at Firebird's or even Ruby Tuesday (RIP) on almost every occasion that I've ordered steak at those restaurants over the past several years. There was no melt-in-your mouth tenderness to the steak at all. I'm not saying that the steak was gristly--that was definitely not the case. It was, however, the toughest, chewiest steak I've had in the past decade, at least. Despite chewing each small piece for at least 20 seconds, all I ever managed to do was flatten it before I finally swallowed it. Quite frankly, it was disheartening. It wasn't inedible (again, the flavor was fantastic), but this simply wasn't a "prime" steak experience, by any stretch. No, I didn't complain or send the steak back--I simply didn't want to interrupt the conversation we four were having. And unlike a mid-range restaurant (where I have sent poorly-cooked steaks back), I really didn't feel like I should have to make that part of my experience at a fine-dining restaurant like Fleming's. A real top-end restaurant simply should never have served a low-quality steak like that, or even allowed it to be accepted into the kitchen. So at the bottom line, this is likely to be my last visit to Fleming's. I simply don't have any interest in spending that much money to eat anything less than a top-grade steak, and it's not my job to be part of their quality-control staff. I'm sorry to say that, but when you've set the bar that high with your marketing, there really is no room for second chances with your centerpiece entree.More

Went for an anniversary dinner. This was my 4 or 5th visit to a Flemings restaurant and 3rd to this one. Service was personable and precise, with just the right amount of attention. Food was exceptional. My friend and I split the Tomahawk steak, my...wife had the lobster, and my friend's wife had salmon. All was perfectly prepared, and tasty. The steak could be cut with a fork, it was so tender. Although most list this chain as a 2nd level from Morton's, Capital Grille or Del Frisco's. With the possible exception of Capital Grille, Flemings exceeds all of them, and is my go to restaurant when i am traveling.More

Another excellent visit. Had a great birthday dinner once again. Me and my wife shared a TomaHawk steak. It was perfectly cooked as always. Sides were excellent too. While I was surprised I appreciated that I was able to get pick any dessert rather than...being restricted to the Prix fixe menu selection. Everyone was great.More

Went here for our anniversary on a quasi-post COVID time. Tables were well separated. Food was absolutely phenomenal. Steaks were cooked as we asked, the Lobster Mac and Cheese is a not to be missed, and the lobster tail (with the Filet) needed nothing else...(butter, whatever). Our waiter (Kyle or Ryan?, but aka "Jeff Carter") added to our wonderful experience.More

I don't know what the price of their prix fixe is, but I can tell you that the filet mignon I had there was probably the best I have ever had. Food, presentation, and service are the best at Fleming's.
