Service, food and ambiance all top shelf! – After reading the review of Megloomis 10/10/10, we made a reservation for an early Sunday evening requesting a "private, romantic boot" and were not disappointed and had a very similar experience to the reviewer. Dave R. was our waiter and could not have been better or more friendly. The politeness and efficiency extended to servers and hostess as well. Nice to be addressed by our last name and not "guys". The food- everything was outstanding, served hot and the filet mignon and prime rib was cooked precisely as ordered. Sauces were supplied on the side and delicious. The toppings for the baked potato were also served on the side so one could add just the right amount of butter, sour cream, bacon and cheese. Blue cheese mashed potatoes were very rich, but so tasty. Caesar salad had just the right amount of dressing and the lettuce fresh and crispy. Chef's special soup for the evening was lobster bisque including pieces of lobster and a shrimp on a small crusty in the middle. Chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream, sliced pistachio nuts with whipped cream rounded out this super evening. Although we had not mentioned it was our anniversary, we were asked if it was a special occasion and did note it. A candle was added to our dessert and were were send home with a complimentary box of truffles. The ambiance was very pleasant with subdued lighting, wine bottles on display everywhere and and expansive view of the open kitchen from our booth set back in the center at the far end of the restaurant. We look forward to returning to Flemings and hope your experience will be equal to ours.
Excellent experience! – My husband and i recently came here for our anniversary!! We told them it was our anniversary so we asked for a private romantic table...when we arrived we were seated at a very private romantic booth and greeted with a "happy anniversary"...the food was definatley 5 star quality...the augratin potatoes are to die for!!!! Then we were given a complimentary desert on the house and a box of chocolates on our way out!!!! This was truley a memorable anniversary, the staff and food were unforgettable!! thanks flemings for the great experience!!!!!!!!!
3 times a Charm !!! – Top Quality, 3rd time there and always good.
Steak mouth watering and the waiter picked a good wine for us.
Good price and good service. This could be Boston's #1 steakhouse.
Great value! – For a nice meal in a nice restaurant, this is the place. Compared to it's steak house rivals, Flemming's offers a great value and some very nice dishes. Don't expect the quality that you will find at Davios or Grill 23, but the food is pretty darn good and the ambiance is quite nice too.
Prime beef, a comfortable atmosphere and an extensive, user-friendly wine list are the signatures of this upscale steakhouse. – In Short
With a decor of dark wood, leather upholstery and soft lighting, this clubby steakhouse has a warm, upscale feel. The menu's focus is prime beef (aged up to four weeks), from bone-in rib eye and filet mignon to New York strip drizzled with bearnaise sauce. Classic seafood offerings include lobster tails, steamed crab legs and wild Alaskan salmon; sides, served a la carte, include baked potato and chipotle mac and cheese.
beautiful and romantic – My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary. We got there about half an hour early, our table was already ready for us but we went to the bar for a few drinks. The bartenders we very friendly, attentive and easy to have a conversation with, YUMMY DRINKS! The inside decor was beautiful, very cozy! We got to our table and our server (Danielle) helped us choose a great bottle of wine (from the amazing wine list). Danielle was very knowledgable about the menu and wine list. Durring dinner the managers, and chef came over to make sure everything was perfect... and it was! This was possiably the best dining experiance we have ever had! Our next trip to boston will definetly include Flemmings.
Don't Go Even If It's Free – I took a friend to Fleming's Steakhouse in Boston and it was the worst meal that I have ever had. I realize that I had seafood in a steakhouse, however the shrimp were as hard as rubber bullets. The scampi sauce was too salty. I would recommend that you select another restaurant because I spent almost $200 on the worst meal of my life.
The steak was top notch and the server was very attentive. The wine list was also a pleasant surprise, extensive and reasonable. I will be back quite often. Thanks!
Average at best – We were early for our reservation. The staff set us up and seated us within 20 minutes almost 20 minutes before our reservation. Nice job.
The waiter was great, gave us plenty of attenion, The service was excellent. Thats where it ends.
The room is very dark, maybe great for dates but not for a party of 6 guys. It was difficult to read the menu due to the lack of light.
Started with Wicked Cajun Shrimp. Nothing special here. A hint of heat and spice but basically warm shrimp
Next the Cesar salad
the lettuce was crisp but the flavors were not robust. It was good, not great but good.
The 20 ounce bone in New York strip
I ordered rare , the waiter double checked and explained rare to me. I confirmed the order of rare. I liked the fact the waiter checked.
The steak came out as ordered. it was cooked excellent. Its too bad the meat had no flavor at all.
For 44 dollars it should have been mouth watering, it wasn't!
With the steak I ordered a baked potato, it was huge and opened in a zig zag pattern accompanied with a plate of bacon bits, sour cream, butter and cheddar cheese. It is sad to say this was the high point of the meal.
The meal was so average I decided to skip dessert but did have a double shot espresso. The espresso was done well and had the most flavor of the evening. The done side was it was served in a 12 ounce coffee cup. No where does it look good to serve something half full.
I read the other reviews here and was wondering if we ate in the same restaurant. After I spend 150.00 plus tip and parking and to only recieve an average meal ? I could have had a similar meal at outback for 40.00.
Sorry I would not suggest this restaurant and would not return. When dining out the meal should be better then what I could prepare at home, this was not.
I want to repeat the wait staff and hostess staff were excellent. Due to the average food I can only say 1 star
great service – I found the bar very friendly, the bartender Ricky was extremely welcoming, very personable and offered the best selection from the menu. King Crab leg unbelivible. 2nd , salad great wedge, lots of blue cheese and crispy white green and lots of toppings. The main meal a 16 oz on the bone steak. Incredible cooked to perfection. The greatest satisfation the desert, a hot lava of choc.with home made whipcream the best desert I have ever had. The service was beyond the best Ricky made us feel like were were at home introducing us to each and every sever. When enjoing dinner, look for Ricky at the bar, very experienced and intuned to what you need to order. A great night.
