Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar Restaurant Review: Fleming’s has the upscale ambience of a classic gentlemen’s club with dark wood and subdued lighting creating a comfortable space. Chefs cut fresh Prime aged beef each day and serve it up seared to keep the steaks juicy. The petite filet is popular, but there are many choices. A three-course prime rib dinner including dessert is offered on Mondays. Non-red meat options offer barbecued Scottish salmon or Alaskan king crab legs. Among starters, we like the Prince Edward Island mussels with shallots, roasted tomatoes and sausage. Sides are shareable; try the spicy Thai green beans, truffle-parsley mashed potatoes and the chipotle cheddar mac ‘n’ cheese. The 100-choice wine-by-the-glass list is a plus. If choosing becomes too difficult, opt for a flight of three two-ounce pours. There is an additional reserve wine list by the bottle. The “5 for $6 ‘til 7” bar menu with five selections each of appetizer, cocktail or glass of wine for six dollars before 7 p.m. has proved so popular that Fleming’s has added a later happy hour, with “eight for $9 ’til 10,” with a different list of wine, cocktail and appetizer options. The chocolate lava cake, spilling warm chocolate sauce on the first bite, is a perennial favorite way to finish the meal.
