1st time – Great experience. Excellent food. We had the artichoke appetizer. Best I've ever had. Portions are overwhelming. I had the filet mignon cooked med. well, but should've asked for med. It was such a good cut of meat, it didn't need the extra time on the fire. But that was entirely my fault. the rib-eye was even better. We had the mashed potatoes and asparagus on the side. Both were great. The service was great. We were seated on time and the waiter was prompt. Prices are a little high on the sides and mixed drinks, but that is expected for fine dining. Will eat there again in a heartbeat.
Terrible Food, Poor Service, and then Gouged!!! – After waiting 40 minutes the food finally arrived cold and under cooked. I had ordered the steak medium but it arrived rare. The shrimp that came on the side tasted dried up and tasteless.
Unfortunately the service was quite bad as well. Our waiter was spread throughout the restaurant and seemed occupied with a big dinner table. At times he would provide a menu and then arrive back before we could have a chance to review it. At other times he was absent for long periods and would not make eye contact. Neither the roving manager nor waiter ever asked if our meal was satisfactory.
Having ordered the special (not priced on menu or disclosed) it was rather shocking when the bill arrived and the special had been priced significantly higher than other similar dinner entrees.
The only food that arrived promptly was what was dried on the wine glass.
Throwing it back on the fire???? – Steaks were served and we cut into them....asked for "medium plus" got "bloody plus" even the waitress said...."please let me take these back and have them cook them a little longer." After doing that....the steaks were not tender and the outside was so burnt it sure wasn't worth the $140.00 tab at the end!!!! We waited forever for the steaks....we had reservations at 5:45 and so it wasn't busy....don't know what the problem was, but after traveling for 2 1/2 hours to get there...it wasn't worth the drive or the money. Very dissapointed and wouldn't go back unless we had a gift certificate to make up for the disasteress evening!
Flemings has potential – There are very few good fine dining restaurants in the SLC area, so it is nice to see a restaurant like Fleming's helping to remedy the situation. I have been to Fleming's SLC quite a few times and the experience has been quite mixed. In some cases the service and food is on par with what you expect from similar steak houses elsewhere in the U.S. Other times you are stuck with average cuts of meat or fish served by a young, inexperienced kid that you would expect to find at a much cheaper restaurant. Maybe it was just his form of subtle condescension when our waiter told us they didn't carry any brand of White Zinfandel, but that he had a nice Beringer blush Zinfandel instead. I always thought the *waiters* were supposed to make fun of the *guests* that didn't know White Zinfandel isn't white.
If you've never been to a real Steakhouse... – ...you probably wouldn't know that you have to order the sides individually. This is the steakhouse's way of saying, "Our steak is so incredible it stands alone." And trust me, Fleming's stands alone. Romantic atmosphere, tremendous service, and to die for food. The steaks melt in your mouth! If youre not willing to pay for the best then this probably isn't the place for you.
Very Happy – We went for our anniversary. The atmosphere was not the most romantic place, but it was still very romantic. The food was very, very good!! The steak felt like it melted in your mouth. One thing to keep in mind is the portion's are very big. You could easily share the sides, and salads. Even the steak for that matter. You definately do not leave hungry. Our server was very informative with suggestions and was apologetic and gave us a complimentry appetizer when our's took longer than expected to come to the table. The manager even came over and apologized. If you like wine, try the Wine Flights. Bit pricey, but worth it, if you want to splurge!!
best steak in utah, ive been ther 6 times and wont eat steak anywhere else. breaded brie is a good starter then the filet and some flemings potatoes. then the chocolate cake or the key lime pie is great. service and the wine list is the best i have had.
Fantastic – The finest restaurant in Salt Lake. The food was fantastic and the service was just as good. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody.
Love It! – We eat here often - we have only had a crusty waitress once. We love the food and the surroundings.
WAAAAAAY Overpriced!!!!! – The decor is pretty. The steaks were very tasty, but the service was fair. Calling the appetizers fair would be generous. The tomato and mozarella salad used tasteless supermarket tomatos at the peak of tomato season. The worst of it though was the outrageous prices. $11 for a shrimp appetizer containing 4 shrimp!? Everything was ala carte, so on top of the stratospheric steak prices, we had to pay an extra premium for side dishes.
